Apt in 1st Arr for two weeks

Considering an apt in 1st Arr on rue Paits Gaillot for two weeks 23 Sept-7Oct. Is that a good area for access to metro, train, restaurants, market etc.? We are good walkers, love to explore neighborhoods, but will be wanting to further afar to outlying areas.

Its location is next to perfect. You'll be in the very heart of the city and be able to walk anywhere. In the evenings this area is extremely animated till very late, but yours is a tiny street so the noise won't be a big factor. Restaurants, cafes and bars are dozens within 2 minutes walking distance from your appartment in any direction. A metro stop is just round the corner.

Enjoy your stay. One possible minor hiccup - there are several kebab restaurants on this street, but the smell stays inside so normally you won't feel it. And just to correct a possible typo - the name of the street is PUits Gaillot not PAits Gaillot.

Thank you for your advice. We just returned from our two week stay and the apt was perfect location. Did notice the cooking kebab odor a few times, but definitely not offensive or overbearing and did enjoy a shawarma from Adonys one day. Lyon is a stunner of a city! Architecture, river areas, ease of transportation, affordable. Marche St Antoine was nearby and provided us wonderful ingredients for apt cooking, but enjoyed the many bouchons, cafes restaurants all around the city. Did take trains to Annecy and Vienne for day trips and enjoyed both very much. Weather was perfect and the Lyon Marathon ran right in front of our apt last Sun,. great to see so many participants and the enthusiasm of Lyon.
