“A well-equipped apartment in a great location with a friendly, helpful owner next door.”
Reviewed October 9, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Most of the things I would like to say about this apartment have been said by previous reviewers, so I'll try not to repeat too much.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment. From the moment we were greeted by Laurent, we felt at home. Laurent is an excellent host. He speaks fluent English (but kindly did not criticise my inferior French) and clearly wanted us to enjoy our time in Lyon. He even offered to arrange a taxi for us at the end of our stay, realising that we would struggle to manage this ourselves. We did not need any other assistance, but I am sure that he would have helped with anything if we had asked him.
I have often wondered what lies behind the large doors that open onto the street in French cities, so it was great to have the chance to live like a local for a week. The location was ideal for travelling anywhere in Lyon. When booking, I was unsure whether to choose this apartment or one in Vieux Lyon that was also highly rated on TripAdvisor. I am so glad we decided on this one, because it was only a few minutes walk from Vieux Lyon, but much more convenient for shops and public transport. It was also spacious, quiet when the windows were closed, and had a well-equipped kitchen, which we found useful because my husband has a food allergy and we were able to cook a few evening meals that we knew were safe for him to eat.
We also found the wifi to be very fast and reliable.
If we ever return to Lyon, I would definitely stay here again.

“Excellent choice of stay in Lyon”
Reviewed August 13, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The apartment is beautifully appointed with quality furniture, spacious living areas, spotlessly clean and superbly located near the old town. You can walk to the key attractions of Lyon from here and there are restaurants and bars galore as well as a huge variety of shops to cater for every taste.. Transport is literally at your doorstep but the double glazed windows keep noises at bay at night. We enjoyed hearing life going on below us during the day. Laurent is an extremely charming and obliging host who has provided a very detailed guide with his recommendations for places to eat and listings of specialty shops with accompanying maps showing their locations. We enjoyed two of his favourite restaurants during our four day stay. We have no hesitation in highly recommending his apartment for your stay in Lyon.

“Comfortable apartment in center of Lyon”
Reviewed July 22, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our host provided great check in information. The apartment was very clean and well stocked with basic supplies. A market was close by. We were close to all the main sightseeing in Lyon. The only downside was lack of AC but we had fans to keep us cool. The soundprroof windows kept the street noise to a minimum. It was nice to have a washer/dryer and also a large drying rack in the spacious bathroom.

“c'est magnifique”
Reviewed June 27, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My husband and I stayed in Laurent's lovely apartment for only 2 evenings. We so wish it could have been more. The apartment was spacious and had everything we needed. It was centrally located on a somewhat busy street with lots of wonderful restaurants, patisseries, boulangeries and wine sellers in easy walking distance.

Laurent was by far our favorite host of our trip (3 rentals in all). He graciously made the apartment rental available to us early (after we hopped an early train due to the train strike). He was an extremely gracious host and the book of information he provided was...immense. Truly like nothing I've seen before. We could have stayed for a year and never had a question about where to go or whom to buy from. I can only imagine the many hours...no weeks, it must have taken to compile such detailed and useful information. We took photos with our phone so that we would have all of the information at our fingertips so no matter what neighborhood we were in we could find a recommended spot. And all of the recommendations were fabulous. Truly I cannot say enough about this. To be in another country (our first time in France) with limited French and have so much information was a real gift. Merci Laurent!

The apartment itself was well stocked with everything we needed and spotless. The bed was comfortable and although there was street noise when the windows were open, once closed it was so quiet! We didn't use the sofa bed so can't comment on that. The bathroom, which includes a washer/dryer, was spacious and had a tub which was unexpected. Albeit a small tub, but I'm a small person and I fit perfectly.

Our security deposit was returned before we were back in the U.S. I would highly recommend this apartment and hope to return in the near future.

“Wonderful apartment in central Lyon”
Reviewed June 14, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

Our stay in Lyon and this very spacious apartment was made quite special in a wonderful way because of the location of the apartment, the warm hospitality and helpfulness of Laurent, the landlord, the excellent standard of fittings and equipment within the apartment. We often use rental apartments and this was the best equiped we have ever stayed in. It was the little things like a new toothbrush in the bathroom cupboard in case a guest arrives without one.. It was very easy to prepare a meal in the kitchen because of the extensive range of cooking utensils, appliances and also condiments supplied.
We really appreciated the bed having a top sheet as well as a duvet/doona, we do not find it as comfortable when only a duvet is supplied, especially in warm weather.
We arrived on an earlier train than planned because of the industrial action affecting train services and Laurent was very obliging and helpful in storing our luggage until the apartment was ready and notifying us as soon as it was ready.
Overall, a very positive experience staying here, would highly recommend it.

“Great Location”
Reviewed March 11, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

person found this review helpful

The accommodation is spacious and very well presented. The owner provides a wonderful book with suggestions for food, shopping, interests and places to visit. The apartment is in a great location and surprisingly quiet considering it is on such a busy street. A tram stop is outside, which we didn't use as each time we went walking we found a new place to explore and didn't want to miss out on anything..

The bed is very comfortable, the bathroom is good and it is a wonderful place to be located from which to explore Lyon.

“Comfortable Accommodation in a Central Location”
Reviewed February 19, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

My wife and I have recently spent a very pleasant week in this comfortable and spacious apartment. Laurent, the owner, who lives next door, was the perfect host; pleasant, very helpful, but never intrusive. The apartment was clean, well cared for, fully equipped and everything worked. Although the apartment is situated on a busy street, opposite a lively bar, we were undisturbed and slept well every night. The central location is perfect for seeing the sights of Lyon. Both of the city’s rivers are nearby, the metro just five minutes walk away and the wonderful Musee de Beaux Arts even closer. Also, there are several supermarkets within five minutes walking distance and numerous restaurants. A perfect place to stay. We would love to return.
