“Central area in Lyon”
Reviewed 8 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

This apartment is located in the 1st area of Lyon and it is very closed with the Saone River. Only few minutes walk from Hôtel de Ville metro station. Facilities are fully equipped. PS: this is a Chinese restaurant opposite!

“Cheerful, spacious, well-situated apartment”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

We very much enjoyed our stay in this spacious, clean, and well-situated apartment. The location is within walking distance of many important sites and is close to metro stations.
The living room/dining room/kitchen is large, sunny, and cheerful. There is free WI-FI, but it doesn't reach to the back of the apartment. There is a large screen TV which we used only briefly and was fine. The kitchen is large and very well-equipped, and there were supplies such as cleaning equipment, some butter, oil, and coffee, and laundry detergent for the washer.
There are two bedrooms, one with bunk beds, which we did not use. The other bedroom has a queen size bed which was bit too soft for my bad back but was fine for my husband. I wound up sleeping on the sofa and was very comfortable there. There were plenty of linens and blankets.
The bathroom was small but very modern, functional, stylish, and well-stocked. In fact, the stock of toilet paper was almost comically ample in comparison with our previous rental in Barcelona, where we had been given two rolls for three people for a full week. At La Lanterne, we discovered 22 rolls! Talk about a sense of security.
We did not use the heat. There are large heating panels throughout, so the heating seems that it should be fine. We did not see evidence of air conditioning.
Our host, Alexis, was very kind. He not only welcomed us with a bowl of cherries from his own tree but took the trouble to arrange for a taxi for us to the train station when it came time for us to depart.
In summary, we were delighted with this apartment and our landlord.

“Great apartment in a great location”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

person found this review helpful

This apartment was better than expected. With a big living/dining/kitchen area and high ceilings, the apartment felt large. Everything was in working order. The kitchen appliances were modern. The bathroom was also modern, but a little small. The natural light from the big windows was great. The view of the street below was exciting, as it was normally bustling with pedestrians. It was hard to say goodbye to this home away from home.

“Great apartment in a central location.”

We spent a week in the very spacious La Lanterne de Lyon and enjoyed it immensely. The first floor apartment has been recently renovated and was very clean upon arrival.
Alexis was very easy to deal with both before and during our trip. He left tourist maps and general info about Lyon in the apartment and the wifi was fast. Our children slept in the bunk bed which was just fine as was the main bedroom. The kitchen was large and well very equipped.
We would definitely stay here again if we return to Lyon!

Recently renovated apartment in the heart of Lyon.Surrounded by great restaurants,across from a nice market,and close to public transportation.
Huge windows,well equipped kitchen great shower with plenty of hot water.
Alexis could not have been nicer he let us store our bags ,because we arrived early,and was happy to let two friends join us for a couple of days with no extra charge.He also provided maps and info on local business.Did I mention three doors away from warm baguettes every morning!
