The is a great flat and good value for money. Everything is absolutely perfect! I highly recommend it and would return here any time when in Lyon. First of all, Isabelle reacted promptly and in good English to our questions. She was always very kind. The flat is central (a few minutes walk from Place Bellecourt) and the nearest tube station is a minute walk from it. It is a safe place, central but quite both during the day and the evening (almost no cars drive in the street). It's on the 3rd floor with lift. The flat is tastefully (and newly ) furbished and well equipped (we had everything we needed). It is very comfortable with 4 people because of the two bedrooms, the first one with a double bed and the second one with two single beds (all comfortable). But there also is a sofa bed in the spacious living room (which we didn't use). We could have prepared our meals at home, as the kitchen is well equipped. But preferred to eat outside. While looking for a flat in Lyon we read that many have problems with hot water and shower: here we had plenty of hot water and absolutely no problem! Last but not least, the flat was spot clean. All in all, everything was perfect! Thank you, Isabelle! Our more recommendation: For breakfast try the small La Pénélope café in Rue the Condé, just around the corner. Tasty breakfast for 4-5€ and kind owner.

After coming from a poky Paris apartment for about the same price, Isabelle's apartment seemed palatial and modern. In close walking distance to shops and restaurants and also the Metro, we were able to take full advantage of the comfortable apartment after a day of exploring before setting out again for dinner. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare your own meals should you require. Even though the apartment is situated close to transport, restaurants and shops the apartment is quiet. Even though it is on the third floor the lift makes access easy. Isabelle's instructions on check in were very clear and explicit and she responded quickly when we emailed her with a question during our stay.

Lovely clean apartment. Great view on the park. Renovated. We had a great time and were very satisfied. The only minor negative aspect was the early checkout time (10:30am)

Our stay with Isabelle was excellent. I was surprised at the luxury and convenience of the apartment, in a very convenient location on the main street, which is a pedestrian route into all of the primary tourist and nightlife areas, on the Metro, with safety, beauty and style. Isabelle met us on time, was courteous, accurate, and helpful. Every convenience was present, including real espress machine, luxury salle de bain, and cuisine. I can't think of a better spot in Lyon.

Fantastic apartment. Beautiful and classically modern interior. Isabelle was excellent on check in and great communication. Great location. Out of our 7 AirBnB apartments that we have stayed in this month, this was easily the nicest. Spacious and worked well for our family of 4. Highly recommend. Thank you

very comfortable and well equipped apartment. it's right beside the train station and parking garage, and walking distance to many of Lyon's attractions. there is a elevator which was a life saver with our luggage, always hot water for showers and in the traditional French way a separate toilet and shower room. the kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal and everything was easy to locate and worked. photos and distribution are accurate and the apartment is SUPER clean. host is accessible and responsive and was there to greet us. there is parking outside the apartment, but only overnight - don't park during the day. would highly recommend this place for 2 - 4 people.
