Evasion Loft is a beautifully decorated B & B central to everything in the lovely city of Lyon. Olivier and Therese were wonderful hosts providing us with information for the best restaurants and making bookings for us when we arrived. All of their recommendations were accurate and their explanations of the local foods was most helpful in giving us confidence... More

The Evasion Loft surpassed all of our expectations. As others have commented, the location is very convenient to all of central Lyon's attractions, yet it is removed from the street so the "loft" rooms provide a welcome and quiet retreat from all the city action. Olivier and Therese were very warm and welcoming, and a delight to meet. They helped... More

It is a beautiful b&b with modern architecture. Hotel is very quiet as it is located behind courtyard. There is a huge common open area which is perfect to relax after the long walk. They said that it used to be a factory for corsets and it is beautifully renovated. Owner couple are extremely nice and helpful and have warm... More

We just came back from a trip to Europe--Lyon was our last stop before flying back to California. I booked two nights at evasion Loft, after emailing the four top B&B's on Tripadvisor. Therese emailed me back promptly and I am so glad we chose to stay with them. The B&B is located in a safe neighborhood and the location... More

This was my second stay with Thérèse and Olivier at Evasion Loft. The location is excellent, so close to shops and transport. Thérèse and Olivier were a great help in planning my days and providing maps, recommendations and ideas. With the metro stop so close and the Lyon bikes just up the street it's so easy to get around. They... More

We have stayed in quite a number of B&Bs over the years, and Evasion Loft ranks as one of the very best. Its location is quite good, in a pleasant non-touristy part of town and convenient to the metro. Our room, was of decent size and was effectively designed to make maximum use of the space in question. The bathroom... More

When booking accommodation, we always look to TripAdvisor for reviews of the facility--particularly comments about the hosts--and specifics of the location since we generally do not rent a car. The reviews proved to be true both of Evasion Loft and its owners, Thérèse et Olivier. The B&B is in a beautifully-converted loft that is open and airy, with most bedrooms... More

The hosts are charming, friendly and helpful. The location of their B&B is excellent and the neighborhood is safe.The breakfast was lovely. Avoid booking the largest room, which is located directly over the kitchen, the noisiest area. For those accustomed to a bathroom with a door, please note that in the largest room the shower, toilette, sinks and tub are... More

Second experience in a B&B and I absolutely loved it. Hosts extremely friendly and welcoming. The rooms were good size and very clean. Breakfast was yummy with delicious homemade jam. Excellent location; 3mins walk to the closest metro which stops at the Bellacour and 10 minutes to the Parc Tete d'or. If I ever go to Lyon again, I would... More

Lyon is great, and this is a great place to stay - easy to walk everywhere, and close to the metro. Therese and Olivier are helpful and nice - and our room and bed was great. Service and breakfast were good - we got all sorts of tips, and helpful assistance. We are coming back.
