lyon stay

We will be in lyon for two days, from april 25 to the 27. We will be arriving from Paris and we are debating wheater we should get a hotel near the train station (Part Dieu) or near the city center. Can somebody make a recommendation?

You should definitively stay IN the city center, neither near the train station (as the Part-Dieu district is not the nicest one) or near the city center.

The city center is the 'Presqu'île' (the part between the 2 rivers Rhône and Saône) and the 'Vieux-Lyon' (old city, that is the Renaissance ditrict along river Saône left bank).

The transfer from the train station will be very easy by bus, tramway or métro (depending on the neighborhood you will choose).

Have a look on the hotel recommendations on this forum and check this useful website :


Don't hesitate to come back if you need more infos.
