This B&B is very well located five minutes walk from the funicular leading to the center of town, and 15 minutes walk from “Vieux Lyon,” the historic district filled with good restaurants and bars. The St. Just neighborhood where it is located is picturesque and historic; it has great views over the city and felt very safe. There is a street market with wonderful cheeses, fruits and vegetables just around the corner.
Our room was spacious and clean, although it was in a semi-basement without much of a view. There is a kitchenette and lounge area available for guests; which makes it very convenient for families with young children. There were two families with babies staying when we were there.
Madame was very helpful; she gave us an excellent recommendation for dinner in Vieux Lyon, which was a pleasant walk from the B&B.
