“Great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2011

I found very well located La Grande de Fourviere. You can have the feeling of the old traditional quartier and just 3 min away from the funiculare station which connects with the metro. You will be able to see a real French quartier with all ther traditional minimarkets, bakeries and bistros. In only 2 stations you are right in the Vieux Lyon.
It was perfect to move around the city. The house is located on a hill near the Church of Fourviere. This is an amazing landmark with lots of gardens and wonderful view of the city. I am a runner so the gardens and the roman anfitheater was a big plus for me.

Madame Catehrine is very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is good and the rooms are clean. If you are looking to an option to a hotel, this is a perfect place at a reasonable price. I would go back again. A bien tot!

There are 3 rooms in this B&B, which is in a very inconvenient location away from Vieux Lyon and extremely difficult to find. The rooms are in a converted basement, and none have air conditioning, so there is no circulation. Because the B&B is located in not such a safe area, Madame is very nervous about leaving the windows (which have bars on them) open, and assuring that the doors are always double-locked. There is a great deal of street noise, late into the night, from motorcycles and the local grocery store. The room was cleaned once during our stay (we stayed two nights). The continental breakfast is simple but adequate (orange juice, coffee or tea, and bread, butter, and jam). Madame demands payment at the end of your stay in cash, and does not provide any directions or travel tips. This was a very disappointing experience, as we saw thatTripAdvisor had rated this B&B highly--and we found out otherwise.

I stay there last january but also the year before in marsh.
I was looking for good location at reasonable price near by dowtown Bellecour place.
I can use the metro,''la ficelle'' and live my car here. Room was excellent with a beautiful bathroom, breakfast was served in a huge and spacious dining room. The lady take care very well about the famous experience:Food in the little bouchons de Lyon and great ''brasserie Georges''. All his recomendations was fabulous. Here the sleep was excellent:Across the street the strange St Irene church is were the merovingian kings sleep for many centuries(Me, I wake up in the morning).Next time in Lyon I will go back!
