This B&B is a great place to stay in Lyon. It is located on the hill above the Vieux Lyon, in a very pretty and quiet neighbourhood with a village feel. Yet, it is only minutes away from the hustle and bustle if the Old Town.
The rooms are spacious, very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very tasty - besides the fresh bread, croissants and cakes, we could also enjoy homemade yoghurt and a variety of homemade jams.
Catherine, the Owner, was great at recommendations about the city, both for things to do and restaurants, tailoring her advice to what her guests were interested in.
Last but not least in a city like Lyon where parking could be an issue - the B&B has a couple of free parking spaces.
Great spot for a city break or, like in our case, for quick visit combined with a ski trip. We will certainly go back again!

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.

Room Tip: Like many B&B’s, La Grange does not accept credit cards, so make sure you have the cash on hand.

We booked two nights, needing a central location close to the places we wanted to see. We didn't want to drive any more than we had to, and the bed and breakfast offered free parking. We ended up staying 3 nights, as the bed and breakfast was a good choice for our needs.

The neighborhood at first, seemed a bit rough. However, after getting past our initial misgivings, we found the area has a lot to offer. A small grocery is across the street. A laundry is two blocks away. ATMs are close by. Restaurants and eating places are an easy stroll away. The cathedral and roman ruins are a15-20 minute walk. So is the vernacular that gives easy access to the old city. Beyond our initial feelings, we never felt uncomfortable walking around the area, even at night.

Our room was located in a walk-out basement. It was tastefully decorated and had its own shower and toilet. The bed was comfortable. We also had access to a shared kitchen, refrigerator, and sitting room.

The hostess served a good breakfast of juices, homemade breads and jelly, and fresh fruit. She was friendly, hospitable and very helpful.

The only negative was the lack of a fan to circulate air. Also, a top sheet (although uncommon in France?) would be helpful for those nights when a blanket is too warm. However, I would have no qualms about staying here again, and would give the place a 5 rating, with a fan in the room.

Room Tip: We had a room that faced the street and market. With the window open, some street noise was evident...

We spent 4 wonderful days in Grange de Fourviere, 15 m. walking from Vieux Lyon. Wonderful breakfast room, home made cakes & jams, good chats with Catherine and other guests and French touch everywhere. The rooms are excellent, clean and quiet. Public transportation at 5 mn walking. We recommend it!

I'm not sure why anybody would complain about this place. The innkeeper was incredibly friendly, took the time to patiently explain how best to optimize the 28 hours we were there, and created a simple, but wholesome breakfast for my wife and me.

My one complaint was that we had a hard time picking up wifi downstairs, but it's not like I'll ever complain about not being able to check my email. it was a welcome reprieve and helped me disregard work for at least one day.

The inn is very easy to find and is located very close to the funicular, which you can access as a free transfer from the metro. The location is super convenient - about 10 min. walk to the Minimes Roman theatre and the surrounding old town. I greatly enjoyed my stay there, and would recommend to anybody else who needs a place to stay in Lyon.

We traveled as a family (3 children 11-14years). We stayed 4 nights in the apartment (just next door to the B&Bs). Our stay was very enjoyable and we found our apartment very roomy, comfortable and clean. It had everything we needed for our time there. It was great to have the little storage room for our luggage and even though we needed to use the bed settee in the lounge, still had enough room in the apartment to relax when we were there. Being in a central location, you will get traffic noise. We found it was not a problem if we kept our windows closed at night - we slept soundly. The location of the apartment was great. We walked everywhere as this is the best way to get a real feel for the place. It was only a 5-10 minute walk to Vieux Lyon downhill which we managed with our kids without any complaints. Our experience of the apartment and area in no way compares to previous negative comments. We were very satisfied.

Catherine was very welcoming and gave us plenty of information on the sights of Lyon, restaurants and surrounding area. The apartment does not come with parking but Catherine gave us one of the B&B spots, initially for 5 euro a night (very reasonable) but at the end of our stay, insisted on giving us back the money as her B&B tenants didn't need the car space.

We would highly recommend this accommodation and would definitely use this accommodation again if we returned to Lyon.

Room Tip: Apartment is a good option for families as it is self contained and provides space for the children...
