“Sweet home away from home”
Reviewed 19 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Great location close to all the action. Lots of wonderful food and shopping close by. Easy access to all public transport. Huge beer bar across the street a bit noisy at night if the windows are open, but completely silent if you shut them. Apartment very well equipped and attractive to stay in.

Reviewed 7 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The apartment was as advertised except, American beware that there is a Dark un lit stairway up to the aoartment( Europe calls 2 no floor 1st floor). Elevator doesn't work to this apartment. If you have luggage it's a pain. Owner didn't offer a hand to help us w/ 4 suitcases up the dark stairs! Rude! Bring extra toilet oaoer! Owner didn't supply extra . Bar across from apt. Gets really noisy ! Noise is an issue at night

Management Response
19 May 2017
I have now welcomed guests from many parts of the world - including a considerable number from the United States - to this historic apartment in the centre of Lyon. Their pleasure in staying here as well as the comfort afforded by the apartment and its facilities are reflected in the reviews given. Occasionally, it is inevitable that a guest does not read the clear description of the apartment given and expects something different.

We arrived at the apartment after 30 hours of travelling .Laurent was waiting for us and gave us all the information we needed . He has prepared a most comprehensive information booklet which made it very easy to find places ,how to use the public transport, and anything else you could imagine.
Prior to our arrival we had had a number of contacts and Laurent always answered our questions quickly and thoroughly This has not always been the case with other bookings .
The apartment was spotlessly clean and the furniture was of very good quality and comfortable .
I must make mention of the bed it was the most comfortable bed I have slept in away from home .We stayed 10 days and i had no discomfort at all . I have serious arthritis and this is important, unfortunately our next stay the bed has caused all sorts of problems for me . The doona was also of a very high quality hence comfortable . Even though the apartment is on a busy street the bedroom was very quiet.
Everything was within walking distance and the public transport easy to use.
Laurent was gracious and most helpful .
Our stay in Lyon will be a highlight of our travels over many years.
We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this Apartment and Lyon

“Our home away from home for a week in Lyon”
Reviewed 4 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We loved staying in this apartment. It was a very convenient location. Close to grocery, pastry shop, bars, restaurants and other apartments where family/friends were staying. Old charm and very comfortable. It was nice to have laundry with instructions for use available in the apartment during our stay. As others have stated Laurent provided a book with very useful information. Laurent was out of town when we arrived so his friend checked us in and delivered our missing luggage when the airport dropped it off at the apartment. Laurent was also kind enough to print boarding passes. We would definitely stay here again.

“Restful Stay in a Welcoming Environment”
Reviewed 18 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This apartment is in a great location with easy access to Metro and wonderful restaurants and other attractions within walking distance. While it seems like a busy street the bedrooms were in the back and my wife and I had the most restful sleep out of the three places we stayed in Europe.

Laurent was very welcoming and had prepared a book with maps indicating where to find shops, restaurants, etc. The apartment is very spacious.

Internet access was great compared to the other places we had been.

Lyon is a wonderful city and the apartment added to a great time.

“A well-equipped apartment in a great location with a friendly, helpful owner next door.”
Reviewed 9 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Most of the things I would like to say about this apartment have been said by previous reviewers, so I'll try not to repeat too much.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment. From the moment we were greeted by Laurent, we felt at home. Laurent is an excellent host. He speaks fluent English (but kindly did not criticise my inferior French) and clearly wanted us to enjoy our time in Lyon. He even offered to arrange a taxi for us at the end of our stay, realising that we would struggle to manage this ourselves. We did not need any other assistance, but I am sure that he would have helped with anything if we had asked him.
I have often wondered what lies behind the large doors that open onto the street in French cities, so it was great to have the chance to live like a local for a week. The location was ideal for travelling anywhere in Lyon. When booking, I was unsure whether to choose this apartment or one in Vieux Lyon that was also highly rated on TripAdvisor. I am so glad we decided on this one, because it was only a few minutes walk from Vieux Lyon, but much more convenient for shops and public transport. It was also spacious, quiet when the windows were closed, and had a well-equipped kitchen, which we found useful because my husband has a food allergy and we were able to cook a few evening meals that we knew were safe for him to eat.
We also found the wifi to be very fast and reliable.
If we ever return to Lyon, I would definitely stay here again.

“Excellent choice of stay in Lyon”
Reviewed 13 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The apartment is beautifully appointed with quality furniture, spacious living areas, spotlessly clean and superbly located near the old town. You can walk to the key attractions of Lyon from here and there are restaurants and bars galore as well as a huge variety of shops to cater for every taste.. Transport is literally at your doorstep but the double glazed windows keep noises at bay at night. We enjoyed hearing life going on below us during the day. Laurent is an extremely charming and obliging host who has provided a very detailed guide with his recommendations for places to eat and listings of specialty shops with accompanying maps showing their locations. We enjoyed two of his favourite restaurants during our four day stay. We have no hesitation in highly recommending his apartment for your stay in Lyon.
