Gaby and her husband made us feel very welcome and provided us with everything you could possible think of including toothbrushes. The position was fabulous within walking distance to most areas of interest and a wonderful bakery just down the street. Everything worked well in the apartment and we will definitely come back to stay.

The flat is located in the heart of old Lyon, not far from the Vieux Lyon, in an old building, very close to the underground and the daily market on the river. The location is superb.
And yes, it is an old flat but full of charme: wood built in wardrobes, wooden creaking floors and high ceilings. I loved looking out of the windows and seeing the facades of ancient apartment houses.
The kitchen is fully equipped and Madame Gabriele left plenty of provisions for us. She really thought of everything, including shampoo and conditioner in the bathrooms!
The only drawback is that the beds where somewhat sagging and not fully comfortable (especially for me who has a very bad back). This is the only reason why I didn't give an 'excellent' rate. In spite of this, if I were to go back to Lyon I would love to go back to this flat.
Merci madame Gabriele!

I stayed here for five nights with my mother and daughter while we visited my older daughter who is studying in the city. The apartment is large, well equipped, and situated in the middle of excellent shopping. It has beautiful floor to ceiling windows, some of which open to a long French balcony that overlooks rue de Brest. It is convenient to good restaurants, particularly those on rue Merciere. It is a short walk from the old part of the city, as well as to Place Bellacour, and anywhere else you may wish to visit. It is on the 4th level of an old building, with a lift that was very convenient for my mother. Gabriele is a very friendly and informative hostess. The apartment was a good value for the price.

A spacious, comfortable apartment in the retail heart of the peninsula.Easy walking to the old part of Lyon.Our hostess, Gabrielle, is very helpful and speaks excellent English. The apartment is clean, well equipped, she even put some groceries in the fridge for us. The only negative is that it can be quite noisy at night, from the surrounding restaurants and streets.

The apartment is ideally located right in he old city. Gabriel met us there and made us feel very welcome, even leaving some supplies ( eggs, cheese etc) for breakfast. The apartment is very old (ancient as described)but has lots of character and is well equipped with every thing you need.

This was a superb AirB&B experience. The hostess was totally enjoyable in person and conducted all the arrangements in an efficient, responsive manner. We felt genuinely welcomed to Lyon. The apartment was described well in both the text and photographs. The apartment was even better than we had imagined. For our two-week stay with three couples and a 3-year old, there was plenty of space. We thoroughly recommend it for the comfortable accommodation, central location, and a chance to experience a local apartment that feels like it belongs in these historic buildings.

Ideal location in the heart of the peninsula, between the places "Bellecour" and" Les Terreaux", 2 steps from the old Lyon and the metro, near St Antoine market and many restaurants. Spacious and character, comfortably equipped (appliances, laundry, WiFi, etc.) in a quiet building with lift. Warm, friendly hosts, understanding and accommodating. Would recommend.

Chau: septembre 2013

The location of the apartment is wonderful, easily accessible by public transport (Metro A, C5, C13, C3, C9..., so good connection to TVG trains or Rhone express) as well as close to main attractions of Lyon. Bellacour, Vieux Lyon ... is within walking distance. there are a lot of restaurants, bars in the next corner of the street (50m far). The farmer market at weekend is very close too. The apartment is typical classical french style apartment in city center with balcony to 2 street. its large area, domestic appliances such as stove, oven, fridge, washing machine, dryer makes tenants feel like home. Gaby and Michel (the owner) can speak English and they replied any of my question very quickly. They even bought something for us for breakfast on Monday morning (we arrived on Sunday when all shops are closed). We were very satisfied. The beds are good with clean, new blanket covers although they look quite old style on the pictures. The bathroom is large and clean too. In general, it's nice place to stay for holiday in Lyon, suitable for travel groups or family.

stayed April 2013 :

 If you're looking for the authentic Lyon experience - an original and quiet apartment of great character - in a terrific location within walking distance of everything, then this is the place for you. Gabriella and Michel could'nt have been more helpful and charming.
