I initially wanted to stay in the 2 person apartment because it was a little cheaper, but it wasn't available. I'm so happy I ended up in the 4 person apartment overlooking the Cathedral instead - worth every penny! I knew I would want to spend a lot of time in the apartment relaxing, and this was so perfect. Never... More

It was the ultimate wonderful experience! The location can not be better, in front of the Cathedral. Surrounded by all the shops and restaurants. The apartment is located in the top floor of a traditional building. Very quiet, well equipped, luminous, trendy and clean! The apartment views are fantastic! You can sit on the couch and contemplate the Cathedral. Not... More

Beatrice and Pierre are wonderful hosts! This is our second stay at Apart-Observatoire Saint Jean and won't be our last for sure. We left Lyon the first time longing for more, so this time we booked a two week stay. Beatrice was very helpful in securing reservations for us and making certain all of our needs were taken care of.... More

We especially enjoyed the great view from the appartment and that it is so centrally located. It was perfect for our family of four, as we had seperate rooms for us and our Boys. The host was very friendly and explained to us how to get around and which bakeries are open on Sundays. We felt well looked after. Even... More

We arrived in Lyon on 28 August 2015 and spent 3 nights in Apart' Observatoire Saint Jean - Côté ouest. The location of this cozy and romantic apartment is ideal for visiting all of Lyon, especially Vieux Lyon; sights to see, in walking distance, include Cathédrale Saint-Jean-Baptiste de Lyon, the Saône & Rhone, Basilique de Fourvière, great shops and restaurants....

A great place to stay in the centre of Old Lyon - close to the cathedral, cafes, restaurants, metro and attractions. We have traveled around the world and have never stayed in anything quite like it. You overlook the cathedral square with a bird's eye view. The apartment is clean and has everything you need. The negatives are the steps... More

What an amazing apartment! It is in the heart of the city, not far from the major train stations (if arriving by TGV) and so close to so many major attractions in Lyon! I stayed in the l'ouest apartment which was an incredible size for me, as well as having amazing views views of Lyon during the Festival of Lights!... More

Perhaps the best view in LYON! We spent a week in October 2014 and loved it. The stairs are not for the faint of heart but once you reach the top..you know it is worth every step. A lively historic area, full of charm and plenty of things to do in walking distance. Parking was a bit tricky but we... More

This apartment is remarkable for two reasons. 1. It is in the heart of Vieux Lyon, the historical center of town. You walk out your door to the Rue St. Jean and it's medieval and renaissance buildings. No need to take public transportation. You are also close enough to visit the other important sites in Lyon on foot. 2. The... More
