5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago for a stay in February 2015 NEW

Of all the places we've ever stayed while traveling, this zooms to the top as best experience we've had and, among other things, enough to make us want to never stay in a hotel again.

Owners Vincent, Jean Luc and Agnes were all gracious, friendly, helpful and so readily responsive whenever we had a need during our 9-day stay here.

Suite Gouverneur was the epitome of exotic time travel while also providing 21st century comforts (granted one of those, the combo washer-dryer, was rough on some clothes). Bed, bath, and kitchen all superb, as was the apartment's layout. There were little tricks to learn, like how to get the key to turn the front door lock upon returning home and open the solid, ancient door as thick as the 15th century walls to enter, but such tricks were easily mastered with a bit of attentiveness and they were part of the authenticity of the time travel that Suite Gouverneur provides - back to the time when Maurice Scève - 16th century poet and...

au coeur du vieux Lyon, dans une traboule donc au calme, bâtiment historique aménagé avec beaucoup de goût et de confort. Propreté impeccable, literie neuve, équipement complet et quasi neuf, rien à redire. Accueil sympathique de Jean Luc, A savoir pas beaucoup de lumière naturelle dans ces vieux immeubles mais proche du funiculaire de Fourvière, du métro, des bus de la gare St Paul et...des bouchons recommandés par le propriétaire pour éviter les pièges à touristes de la rue St Jean (mention spéciale pour "notre maison" à 100 m). On peut aller à pieds à Bellecour, St Nizier et un peu plus loin les Terreaux etc...Immersion dans le vieux Lyon au lieu de lieux normalisés sans âme. On y retournera!
