“Hidden secret behind a blue door.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

We were very kindly welcomed by Oliver and Therese. We arrived around noon and the room was already waiting for us. Oliver told is that he created this B&B in a former factory. The shared breakfast and living room is very cozy and warm. We stayed in the room Tête-d’Or. It is a nice and comfortable room with a good shower. The bed is good. This B&B is located in Lyon, but not in the historic district. However, the walk is not far and the tube brings you in 5 minutes to the Hotel de Ville. Tube station is 100 meter from the front door. The hosts provide you with information about things to see and to do in Lyon. And also they advise you to some very good local restaurants. Our favorite: Restaurant Archange, 6 rue Hippolyte Flandrin, Lyon. Make a reservation in advance. Breakfasts were good. There is always some kind of fruit (berries, baked peer) and several kinds of breakfast pastry or bread with homemade jams and jellies. Although the weather wasn’t always very good: rain and wet snow at the end of April, we enjoyed our stay. Visit a few museums, made a guided tour, visit the park and did make a long run along the Rhone.

Room Tip: See the website for a description of the room and the size of the beds.

Lyon in December during `festival of the lights` , excellent place to stay near the metro, very clean, modern, warm and very sympathic owners. You can also rent a city bike nearby. Good bed, soft sheaths. Good place for a couple, I would stay there again.

Therese and Olivier are the best hosts you could possibly have: gracious, generous, always helpful. Their enthusiasm for what they do ensures that you will have a great time at Evasion Loft. We will always remember the provision of map, guides and tips on places to visit, the delicious breakfasts with extras that varied from day to day, their restaurant recommendations (they'll make reservations for you if your French is not up to it), coffee and tea to help ourselves to during the day plus the opportunity to sample Therese's home-made aperitifs. Add the 'wow factor' of stunning architectural design and decor and we had a uniquely pleasurable experience. Thank you Therese. Thank you, Olivier. We hope to return in the not too distant future.

We stayed in Evasion Loft for a weekend. It is the perfect spot to explore the city, next to the subway station "Massena", and next to the park "de la Tête d'Or". The hosts are really nice and welcoming, you feel like if you were at home the minute your arrive there. The loft is amazing, you can't imagine that there is such a place behind the doors where you are in the street. I recommend this bed & breakfast to anyone who wants to spend a very nice time in Lyon.

We found Evasion Loft on Trip Advisor and were delighted with the vast elegant designer space behind a large street door with no mention of Evasion Loft. So remember the number 21. This is really a chic metropolitan venue. Therese and Olivier are charming, very welcoming and enthusiastic hosts. We parked our car in their private garage and although it is a short walk, Olivier kindly helped with the baggage. They are very knowledgeable, well travelled and have infectious enthusiasm for beautiful Lyon. We run a successful Chambre d'hote in Guernsey and recognise fellow professionals who obviously enjoy hosting and cannot be faulted for their attention to their guests, cleanliness and detail. The breakfast was perfect.

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights at the end of September and couldn't have been happier with our experience at Evasion Loft. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, Therese and Olivier couldn't have been more helpful. After breakfast on day 1 they took us through just about everything to see and do in the city to make the most of our time there. Lyon is a really impressive city and thanks to our hosts, we were able to enjoy it to the full.. Evasion Loft is a very unique place to stay and is conveniently located about 15 minutes walk from the main centre of the city. There is also a metro station nearby if you don't fancy walking. There is a good selection of restaurants nearby. We ate at the Michelin starred 'Maison Clovis' and 'Mon Bistro a moi', both within 5-10 minutes walk and both excellent. We also wanted to try one of the traditional Lyonaise bouchons, so we ate at 'Le Bouchon des Filles' in the centre,which was very enjoyable. Breakfast at Evasion Loft was excellent. The pastries and bread are to die for and everything is served with a smile at a large table, shared with other guests- very civilised! In summary, a wonderful stay!

Therese and Olivier made our stay in Lyon fantastic- we agree with other reviews saying so much of the pleasure of staying there is meeting them. Evasion Loft is well located to Lyon's sights and restaurants. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. We highly recommend Evasion Loft.
