Other Things to Note
Frequently Asked Questions :
- May I pay cash when arriving ? :
no, reservations are only online with the website. The website ensures you a safe transaction and after sale support in case of a problem. The payment will be transfered to me by the website after your arrival.
- Someone will welcome us ? :
Most of the time, I do welcome guests by myself, but it can happen, depending on my schedule and your arrival time, that I send the keys by post, or have the long term tenant welcome you at home. In no case you must disturb my neighbours, ask information or anything. They're not supposed to help you and don't want to be disturbed by my activity.
- Are we alone in the flat ? :
No, the flat is occupied by one long-term tenant in one room, one room is rented as a private double and the third room is a dormitory (cheaper and shared). Depending on the ad you selected, you have one or the other. Thus, it can be up to 7 people in the flat (it never happened :) )
- Where is the flat ? :
My flat is located where the map shows on the website. You're 50 meters from the nearest bus stop, that gets you to the train station in 10 minutes. There is a metro 8 minutes walk away that takes you to bellecour (touristic center) and vieux lyon (old town) in 8 and 9 minutes. You can reach part dieu station in 20 minutes by foot, the other side of lyon in 1h walking slowly.
- Do we have keys to get in the flat ? :
Yes, I'll leave you one set of keys per person.
- May we invite friends in the flat ? :
Generally speaking no, for safety reasons. Still, if I'm aware of that and if you ask, I can make exceptions, but it has to be during the day without disturbing other guests.
- 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), 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.

Romain is really warmhearted and welcomed me upon I arrived Lyon. The location is safe and just next to the bus station that you can catch the last one and happily got home especially the show was fabulous and I went back at around 2am…The room is kind of like the hostel, with three rooms and couples of double beds. Although the lady made some mistakes about my appointed bed to someone else, I managed to find another one and slept well. Anyway, everything is well equiped and I'm sure to enjoy the light show again!
Conforme à la description .
Appartement propre , sympathique pour du dépannage .
Seul soucis : devoir attendre le soir pour savoir quelle était mon lit mais je suppose que ce n'était qu'un soucis d'organisation .
Si vous cherchez une chambre de passage pour une nuit ou deux c'est l'idéal sinon si vous cherchez quelque chose de plus intime et individuel passez votre chemin. Merci
Cheapy but a little difficult: to be received you have to book an appointment. And if you don't have an internet connection that can be a problem. In fact I had no one to receive me.
The house is quite new, with a small bathroom but a nice shower. There are many dorms, but they are almost "dancing" bed. I was on the top bed and it was difficult to sleep.
Maybe for a lower price you can find an hostel.
paolo, sorry for you disappointment about the checking, but yes you need to book an appointment as you're staying at someone's place and not in a hotel :) you showed up unexpectedly and you were lucky to find someone at home. I'm happy that you enjoyed your stay anyway, and I can confirm you that fixing the beds to the wall is on my next todo list :)
Endroit très sympathique pour faire des rencontres et séjourner pour du court ou moyen terme. Romain a été très arrangeant dès le début malgré ma réservation tardive, et l'organisation très bien gérée. Le logement est très confortable et dispose de tout ce qu'il faut pour passer un séjour agréable. C'est propre, calme, mais il est important de savoir que les chambres sont collectives, si vous avez besoin de votre intimité, ce n'est peut être pas l'endroit le plus idéal. Sinon, tout est parfait ;)
Le séjour était super, la dame qui vit là-bas est très poli et les chambres sont comme indiqué.
