“Wonderful B & B”
Reviewed 31 August 2012

Every B&B should aspire to be like this one! All the superlatives have been used already, but they are all true: the location is excellent, the accommodation impeccable and the breakfasts superb, varied and delicious, with those special thoughtful touches which make them a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. Christine and Christophe Branche are the perfect welcoming hosts, friendly yet discreet. It has been a privilege to stay in their beautiful home.

Thank you, Christine, for your recommendations: the Cafe/Restaurant Mademoiselle was particularly good. And thank you both very much for rising at the crack of dawn on our last morning, not only to make us breakfast but also to drive us to the station: that was so kind.

I can't recommend La Chambre d'Hugo too highly. It has to be the best B & B in Lyon - so look no further!

Thank you very much Christine and Christophe for the wonderful stay, my wife and I had a fantastic stay with you in Lyon and I would highly reccomend this to anyone else. A beautiful apartment and well appointed. Christine, the breakfast each day was amazing. The local knowledge for shopping and also restaurants including booking for us each night was very valuable. It was great having drinks with you each night before heading out. We hope you enjoy the champagne. We would love to visit your house in Bordeaux some time.

This beautiful apartment is so well situationed right in the centre of Lyon and yet a quiet and peaceful haven to retreat to from site seeing and shopping. Christine and Christophe are the perfect hosts; welcoming, knowledgeable, friendly and discrete. It now feels like we are visiting old friends as we have enjoyed staying twice, both in winter and summer. The decore and ambience are perfect, wonderful touches such as beautifully prepared and served breakfasts which vary each day and include homemade jams, fresh fruit, yoghurt, delicious pastries and breads and excellent coffee, crisp quality bedlinen and fluffy towels. Everything you could wish for a perfect stay. Christine is also very helpful with maps and recommendations for shopping and restaurants. We look forward to also staying at their property in Burgundy on our next visit.

Having rented several homes in Provence on this trip it was a delight to move in here and be pampered and treated like honoured guests. From the welcoming tea on arrival to the beautiful bed linens; good access to wireless internet, and the excellent location right in the middle of town, we couldn't have asked for more. After 8 extended vacations to France in the past 12 years, of all the hotels and B&B's we've been in, we have to say this was at the very top. The sumptuous breakfasts every morning that Christine prepared dazzled the eye as well as the palate. What topped it all was the warm reception by both Christine and Christophe, welcoming us into their beautiful Napoleonic era home. The modern elevator was a surprise to find in France but other than to transport our luggage up and down, the wide staircase was easy to use and good exercise after all those wonderful meals in this charming city. La Chambre d'Hugo was a lovely finale after a great trip to a beautiful country.

Christine and Christoph are excellent hosts and work hard to make your stay memorable. We stayed with them for three nights in April this year. Everywhere you turn are special little touches - breakfast is varied each day with home made jams, fresh fruit from their farm, specialty cheeses, meats and of course fresh pastries and croissants. As they have only one guest room you are sure to receive their full attention. They are hosts who go above and beyond expectations and even drove us to pick up our hire car when when we were leaving and guided us to the freeway out of Lyon. Each evening they shared an aperitif with us and were extremely helpful in giving us directions and advice on what to see and do and where to eat. The accommodation is clean, private and very quiet and comfortable. The apartment is right in the centre of the old city and close to all attractions and whilst small the guest accommodation has all that you require.

We really enjoyed our stay in this B&B in Lyon. It is in a PERFECT location in center of city, walkable to everything. Excellent restaurants nearby as well as shopping and metro. Breakfast ample and unique. Owners helpful with good recommendations. Laundromat nearby which we took advantage of to do laundry halfway through our trip. The only downside for us was we had to ask for TP, it was not restocked when we ran low, possibly as this is a B&B where room was not cleaned or checked daily. Some B&Bs are like this; others tidy the room daily; this one does not. Otherwise, great place in a great location and certainly recommend.

Dear Madam,
I am happy to read that enjoyed your stay in my B and B and that you recommend it. I must precise about service and cleaning that I check the room each morning. If I don't made it this morning, it was because you were always comming in and out to go to the laundry, and then, made dry your clothes in the shower room and the bedroom and I don't wanted to disturb you.
My will is always the best for my guests.

We had a fantastic stay at this little B&B. The 2 owners are amazing hosts, offering plenty of helpful advice and serving up a wonderful breakfast (they even gave us 2 metro tickets for free for our onward journey just because it would be inconvenient for us to purchase them ourselves!!).
The location is excellent and the room itself is wonderfully decorated and very spacious, with absolutely no street noise during the night.
There are also plenty of lovely restaurants nearby (as you would expect anywhere in Lyon) and again the hosts are happy to help you with a list of their recommended restaurants and they will also call them to make a booking for you (very helpful).
We can not recommend this B&B highly enough, it was fantastic!!!!
