Ophelie and Julian made us welcome on arrival although some confusion and delay over getting access. However the apartment and bedroom were just as advertised and very nice, quiet and comfortable especially as it was particularly hot and they had thoughtfully provided fan. The location is very good and convenient being close to metro and other services. Julian also provided us with a map and helped us with information which encouraged us to return and spend another couple of enjoyable days in Lyon.
Ophelie was very warm and welcoming. She could not meet us upon arrival but made arrangements for us to get the key and have access to the apartment.
The apartment was very clean and tidy, just as pictured in the photos. Ophelie provided us with a fan to help with the heat and also with directions for the neighborhood.
The bed was very comfortable and the space was more than adequate for our needs.
We did not get to meet Julian as he was out of town.
Though our stay was very short, I would recommend her as a host and I would not hesitate to return.
Julia was at home greeting us. Their flat is easy to get through a bus from Lyon TGV station. The flat is clean and perfect, just as the same as the pictures( even more beautiful!). They prepared a detailed guide for us and suggested us great restaurants and bars. Lyon has lots of great food and their flat must be the best place to start a journey in Lyon!
The location is close to public transport and nearby shops and restaurants. The bedroom was large with a great bed, the kitchen and bathroom were well equipped. Ophélie and Julian were especially welcoming, even with our late arrival, and were more than happy to suggest places to visit and eat during our stay.
Lyon was a very last minute booking for me as I was heading from Cannes to Paris and decided to detour. I literally booked on the train. When I arrived I think I took them by suprise but in a few minutes I was made welcome. The room is comfortable and the bed really is perfect for a good night sleep. My favorite place was the kitchen table where the hosts and I had some great chats on various topics. I felt very homely which is nice after days on the road. Around the house there are lots of restaurant choices a quick walk away. The views of the city are lovely from the look out points.
I would highly recommend this room and I hope you have a great time like I did with the hosts chatting.
Excellent place to stay; matches posted description --clean, calm, quiet, beautifully lit; easy to get to in Croix Rousse. They made the arrival easy and I met them later in the evening. Great hosts, friendly, helpful; ready to answer all questions. Ophelie provides a small booklet about the quarter and the apartment and I will definitely search out her suggestions. Otherwise, good options for all meals close by and pas cher. Small grocery store close and space in the fridge were all I needed, but sharing kitchen would work. Quality linens and the bathroom was spotless and comfortable --with excellent shower -- a real plus on hot days (plus blow dryer available). I would definitely book again. Some might find the apartment too intimate, but I felt I had the privacy I wanted. The guest room windows open on an interior court, so you will hear the noise of other families starting their day, if you don't close the metal shutters, but once that passes, the whole apt is quite quiet again. I slept through this morning bustle my first day -- no problem. I almost never heard my hosts and Liam leaving in the morning! There were never issues with WiFi. Thank you Ophelie and Julian
Everything was perfect during my stay in Lyon. Beautiful apartment, beautiful city, and wonderful hosts.

About the Host, Ophélie Et Julian
Tout d'abord, nous serons très heureux de vous chouchouter pendant votre séjour!
Nous sommes un jeune couple français-allemand. Nous nous sommes rencontrés en Irlande (Cork) , où nous avons vécu tous les deux pendant 6 ans.
Le contexte socio-culturel était très riche et gardons un merveilleux souvenir de cette expérience. Nous souhaitons continuer à vivre dans cet état d'esprit en hébergeant des personnes de tous horizons.
Nous serons ravis de vous communiquer les bonnes adresses sur Lyon car nous adorons la ville et nous connaissons très bien notre quartier!
Nous avons un fils de 2 ans super sociable (il a maintenant l'habitude de voir du monde!)
