We spent two nights in Laurent's lovely apartment. It is large, spacious and very well equipped. Right in the heart of the city, it was a fine base to explore Lyon. Despite the noise and excitement of the city all around the apartment, with the big windows shut, it was extremely peaceful and quiet in the apartment.
Centrally located between the two rivers that enabled pedestrian access to all the main tourist attractions of Lyon including Vieux Lyon, the markets of Croix Rousse and the Musee des Beaux-Arts this apartment hit the spot.
The kitchen was very well equipped and included a helpful collection of basic needs such as oil and vinegar, ground coffee, sugar and herbs to name a few. There is a washing machine too.
A good supermarket and a boulengerie were literally around the corner as were a number a restaurants.
The most outstanding feature as mentioned in other reviews was the beautifully thought out and comprensively set out booklet describing where to find practically anything and separate notes on how to work all the appliances. Of particular use was Laurent’s list of nearby restaurants that he personally recommended. We found L’Ebullition at 12 rue Lanterne excellent.
Being on a busy street in the heart of town the street was a extremely noisy if the windows were open but quite silent when they were closed. The only issue was that the weather was quite warm, possibly unseasonable so for June, and the apartment was uncomfortably warm.
I would definitely recommend this apartment.
Laurent’s apartment in the centre of Lyon is very comfortable. Our host was very helpful and provided a comprehensive detailed guide of Restaurants and other locations. It is suituated close to the old city.
Laurent lives in the building and met us on arrival. Great host. Apartment is in a very old building in central Lyon, walking distance to everything. Supermarket around the corner, bus stop out the front, restaurants at every turn. The apartment is comfortable, well appointed with high ceilings, nice kitchen,and large full height windows that we mostly left open to let the sounds of the city in. Enjoyed our week long stay in Lyon immensely. Merci Laurent. Tony
This stylish, spacious apartment was perfect for our needs. It's beautiful, and very centrally located for easy access to shops, sights, bus stop, restaurants and more importantly the Lyon markets.
The owner, Laurent, is very charming, conscientious and saw to all of our needs. He even took the time to write up a very helpful guide to Lyon, with plenty of recommendations that were spot-on.
The apartment has beautiful windows that look out onto the street, and they are so thick, that they are practically sound-proof! We had a wonderful nights sleep in these confortable accommodations.
I highly recommend this beautiful apartment.
