Place to stay near "The Antique District"

Looking for some places to stay in the antique section of Lyon. Any suggestions on good antique stores and what area are most of them located.

Thanks,

Susan

Most of the antique stores in Lyon are located on or in the near vicinity of the rue Auguste Comte in the Presqu'ile area between place Carnot and place Bellecour.

The city center around place Bellecour is definitely the place to stay. Auguste Comte neighborhood has a dedicated website: it is in French but you will be able to read the names and adresses of the stores (antiques but also art galeries, design and jewel stores, etc). You will also be able to see pictures of the main event of this neighborhood -"Tapis rouge"/"Red carpet" is a special night which takes places on the forst Thursday of October-:

But Cité des Antiquaires is also a must see for those who are into antiques:
