About This Listing
this is a nice room with one double bed and one single bed (up to 3 people). This is a confortable flat with all you need !
Welcome to my place !
A modern renovated flat with balcony on 4th floor with a wide view on garden, a few minutes from the main trainstation "part dieu", and very easy access by public transportation.
Warning : This ad is not for the whole flat nor for the whole room. It is a dormitory you will share with other people, and I live in the other room. You can have the whole dormitory for you, if available, just request it quite much in advance (more than one month usually).
The price is per person and per night for a place in the dormitory. You might have two different single bed if you reserve for 2 people, except if we have place on the double bed and you mention in advance. Of course, we don't mix people from different groups in the double bed :)
The payment is made in advance on the website, that allows you to have a secure transaction, you don't have to pay anything when arriving.
You will enjoy the common areas of my 87 sq.m flat, and you have access to shared areas with other guests (bathroom, toilet, kitchen, living room, balcony)
About practical things : the kitchen is fully equipped (coffee machine for americano and espresso, dish washer, fridge, deep freezer, cooking appliance, oven, dishes, pots, frying pan, etc etc.). You can use this all for free, as far as you clean after use.
You'll get a spare set of keys per person, and you can come back and forth in the flat as you want.
depending on availability, you can get maps of lyon, advice of a local ! NEW : I can rent city bikes rental card for 1.5 euros per day + fees (free for all rides m present and if you ask, I can make exceptions, but it has to be during the day without disturbing other guests.
Interaction with Guests
I will take care of you like I would do with friends (if I'm here of course). I can show you what to visit on a map and explain you anything you're up to :)
You'll be right next to the bus going to the central train station, which is as well 15 minutes walk. There are several restaurants, a supermarket, small shops, all within less than 5 minutes walk.
You can go to the old part of the town within 15 minutes by bus.
There are 3 convenient bus lines right down the building, which allow you to reach all corners of Lyon in less than half an hour.
Other Things to Note
FREQUENTLY ASQUED QUESTIONS :
- Do you have a locker ? :
Unfortunately, not yet !
- May we cook in the place / leave food in the fridge ? :
Of course, the only rule is to leave kitchen as you found it, not to leave food without saying and putting your name (a marker is available), and not to use my items of course !
- Where can I smoke ? :
In no case inside the flat (moreover, you might trigger a fire alarm), but between 7am and 10pm you can smoke on the balcony. For the rest of the time, you can do so outside of the building, quietly.
- Can I park / Is it a safe area ? :
No-one yet complained about parking issues, nor about anything broken on his/her car ! The area is generally safe like France in general.
- Is the flat clean ? :
Yes, bed linen is changed after every guest, and every week for long stay. Cleaning is done at least 2 times a week, the flat is kept very clean.
- May we access the Internet ?
Yes, there is free Wifi in the whole flat.
no smoking except on balcony
use of the kitchen is ok, but has to be cleaned, and anything broken replaced. Please respect other guests and people living here !
silence when other people are in rooms, don't disturb !
don't spend too much time in the bathroom, there is only one shared with other guests :)
My stay was impeccable. Romain is a kind and generous host.
His place is immaculate and comfortable.
I enjoyed the experience so much that i plan on returning soon
This apartment is superb! I am the type of person who likes to wonder around the local neighborhoods of cities. If you want to be right in the middle of the center or downtown this may be a bit further but a ride on the C9 line bus takes you downtown and the main train station within 10-15 minutes. Romain is a great guy who wants you to be happy at his place, even if he is not around which was my experience. But we communicated pretty flawless over emails.
superbe location facile a trouver très bonne indication personne tres sympathique =)
This was a great place to stay. It was comfortable and Romain was very hospitable and helpful. It's easy access to the train station too which was handy.
