Stayed three nights at La Chambre d'Hugo in late April. Christine and Christophe were extremely charming hosts. Nothing was a trouble. They were very kind and helpful but not at all intrusive. I particularly appreciated that they got up on my final morning to give me a very early breakfast before I caught the train. Another day I came home cold and wet and Christine bought me a lovely tray with tea and several bakery treats to warm me up.

The B&B is in a lovely old building on a pedestrian mall in the centre of Lyon close to the metro, tourist office, main sights, shopping, restaurants. Their apartment is very stylish with high ceilings, tall windows and parquetry floors. You have a separate pleasant area in the apartment comprising a bedroom with sitting area, bathroom and walkin luggage/ clothes cupboard. This is well appointed and the bed was very comfortable with lovely linen.

The breakfasts were wonderful and very generous. Fresh fruit, cereal, yoghurt, breads, cheeses, treats baked by Christine and the most wonderful homemade jams/ preserves that we're some of the best I have ever eaten. All this was set out looking like something from a magazine and served in their beautiful dining room. Each morning the settings were different - just another special touch.

It was a real pleasure to stay with Christine and Christophe in their lovely home. They are wonderful hosts.

Room Tip: Only one room

We loved Lyon and we loved staying with Christine and Christophe. Central location in the middle of great shops and an easy walk from the station. This was a five star experience - rarely have we experienced such a level of service and attentiveness from B & B hosts.Our hosts recommended restaurants and booked them for us, recommended places to visit, as well as organising a taxi when we needed it. Everything was made easy for us. They were absolutely wonderful when my husband fell suddenly ill, bringing herbal remedies, tea and going above and beyond in their care. Luckily the illness was short lived and we were both able to enjoy what was one of the best breakfast feasts we have experienced on our travels.
The room was very spacious, absolutely quiet and very well supplied with lots of travel magazines, writing desk and materials, very comfortable bed, walk-inwardrobe and a beautiful and efficient bathroom. Very private also, given that we were in our hosts apartment. We never felt anything other than welcome guests.
Thankyou M and Mme Branche, and we look forward to staying with you again and enjoying lovely Lyon.

My wife and I stayed with Christine and Christophe Branche for five nights, starting March 30th through April 4th, 2013 at 21 Rue Victor Hugo. This private third story home is located in an old Napoleonic-era bulding in a wonderful location...literally minutes from everything in Lyon. It has double glass windows so while centrally located, it's absolutely quiet to the surroundings. Both owners were surperb hosts and anticipated everfything a guest would want. Christophe even drove us to church on Easter Sunday as he was going to visit his Mom and offered us a ride so we didn't have to walk to the local cathedral. Breakfast servings were wonderful, filling and healthy...with great "decafeine" for the non-caffeine guest. Absolutely charming hosts, very friendly and eager to please. Christine noticed that we had an interest in old cars and directed us to an old car museum outside of Srasbourg as this was our next destination. This B&B has got to be the number one location in Lyon if you seek a great downtown location with easy access to everything, super hosts and little conveniences to make a graceful transtition to local lifestyles. It's very easy to agree with all the other excellent reviews...they are spot on. We had a great time...THANK YOU CHRISTINE AND CHRISTOPHE, come see us in South Carolina!

My husband and I stayed for two nights. The apartment is on the 3rd floor of an 1814 building located two short blocks south of Place Bellecourt, Lyon's largest public space. It is convenient to shopping, the rivers, Vieux Lyon, and the cultural/restaurant area north of Place Bellecourt. The apartment was lovely -- beautiful parquet floors, elegant ceiling moldings, big windows -- and Mme. Blanche's exquisite taste -- subdued colors, handsome antique furniture, gorgeous linens -- was evident everywhere. Breakfast was a particular visual delight with many small containers of jams, cheese, breads, grains, all of which tasted good too. Our bedroom was quiet and private with a well equipped bath. The Branches gave excellent advice about local attractions and about places to visit on our way back to Paris. We also had an interesting conversation over tea with M. Branche about current conditions in France. We had a car and rented the Branche's space for 20 euros per night, expensive but probably cheaper than any alternative. Getting the car into the garage was hair raising for us, and we were grateful when M. Branche agreed to back it out onto the street. One piece of advice for a tourist in Lyon: avoid Mondays; almost everything is closed.

My husband and I stayed at La Chambre d'Hugo over 4 nights starting 14th March 2013. Christine had been very helpful over email initially, so we had good expectations, but the atmosphere and service she provides far exceeds anything we have ever experienced in any sort of B&B and the vast majority of hotels - even the 5* ones! Christine and Christophe welcomed us in the late evening when we arrived in Lyon, and showed us to the lovely room - high ceilings, calming colours, very comfortable bed, lots of reading material, and a walk-in closet and spacious bathroom. Everything was immaculately clean, and comfortable and peaceful, and we immediately felt relaxed and ready to explore Lyon. Breakfast each morning was nothing short of a work of art - in fact one morning I took a picture of breakfast, as it was so impressive! The variety of food provided, as well as the cooking and presentation, was absolute perfection, and we felt very pampered and spoiled in the beautiful dining room with candles lit. Every day the table had something different to taste, and it was all superb, and we were not hungry for ages afterward. On our final morning, Christine and Christophe had a birthday postcard for my husband, as it was his 50th birthday, which was such a thoughtful touch. Christine booked us restaurants for the 3 evenings we wanted to dine in Lyon, which was very helpful of her - and her recommendation of Table du Suzanne was especially excellent. We felt very relaxed and rested following our stay at La Chambre d'Hugo, and the attention to detail and customer service was fantastic - in fact on our last morning, Christine had both tickets and Metro map ready to send us on the most efficient way to the airport, which was so appreciated. We definitely plan to return to Lyon, and will make every effort to stay with Christine and Christophe again!
