All that you have read in recent reviews is accurate regarding the fact that this is not a hotel, assistance from the owners and associates is available (coming and going) and that the neighborhood is a trip way back in time. We stayed in the Suite Bibliotheque for 4 nights. The apartment was NOT comfortable. It was unique and cleverly adapted to fit the ancient space, but some simple considerations were left out. Example: There was no table to sit at, although there was room for a small one in either the kitchen or main room. The 2 barstools that were placed in front of the high counter, even at full extension were not tall enough to sit and eat or write, because the counter was about 48 inches high. One had to stand to use the counter. Additionally the barstools looked interesting, but could not hold a person comfortably in a sitting position, even with the use of the footrest. The space was lacking in towel bars and hooks, which would have been an easy addition to make the suite more user friendly. We ended up draping our large towels over the useless barstools to dry! This could have been a 5 star review if consideration had been paid to the needs of long term travelers, and perhaps Vincent or Jean Luc might try staying in the apartment long enough to see its drawbacks. Having only 1 chair and the bed to sit on in a 4 day visit, became very frustrating. Hopefully my comments can be viewed as constructive criticism of this one suite, because all else about our stay was beautiful. The location, the celebrated Lyonaise cuisine, the history, the ease of getting around, the beautiful rivers and their paths. We had a very special dinner at Aux 24 Colonnes and continue to savor it in our memories, along with our overall visit to this unique part of France.
