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.
Première expérience via ce site dans le cadre d'un déplacement professionnel. Je n'ai pas rencontré les propriétaires mais la sympathique locataire permanente.
Ce logement est assez spacieux, la cuisine très fonctionnelle. J'ai choisi la chambre avec lit double pour plus d'intimité et de confort et je ne le regrette pas, car la literie était très agréable. Les autres locataires du moment ont été discrets et cordiaux.
Ceci me donne envie de renouveller l'expérience.
Me and my boyfriend had a lovely stay here. We really enjoyed meeting everyone - the apartment is well located and clean, and everything went extremely smoothly. We also spend a nice evening talking with Nathalie, who lives in the apartment and is lovely. Highly recommended!
For a fee of €25 Romain is picking you up from the airport, which is a convenient service. The location is not too far from the station Gare Part Dieu, there is a bus stop and VeloV station in front of it. The appartment is equipped with everyday things you could potentially need. To reach the Metro D (Montplaisir - Lumiére) you walk around 10-15 min. The room is really noisy, as the building is directly situated on a big crossing which is busy in the mornings and evenings - so nothing for people with light sleep. Unfortunately, my bed was really dusty and also the bath room would need a proper cleaning again at last.
The room was very clean and comfortable, roommates friendly, and great location. My french is not as good as I would like, but I had no trouble with communication, as they both knew what they are doing. If you are a light sleeper the noise from the road might bother you, but I had no problem with it!
Communication rapide et efficace avec Romain. Je suis arrivé très tard mais tout s'est très bien passé. Chambre simple mais il y avait tout ce qu'il faut pour une nuit tranquille. Et j'étais assez proche de la gare Part-Dieu pour me déplacer à pied.
Seule surprise: je n'avais pas compris qu'on serait 4 locataires dans l'appartement.
J'ai séjourné dans la chambre seule. L'accueil était sympa, tout était correct, j'ai toujours bien dormi toutes mes nuits (ce qui était mon principal critère).
merci pour tout c’était vraiment super rien à dir le confort et la propreté était au rendez-vous je vous recommande vraiment cette endroit
a la prochaine
Mon séjour s'est bien passé. On entend le bruit de la circulation, mais cela ne m'a pas dérangé. L'appartement et propre et on s'y sent à l'aise. // Es hat alles gut geklappt. Nichts für ganz Lärmempfindliche; man hört die Straße (was mich aber nicht gestört hat). Die Wohnung ist sauber und ordentlich, man fühlt sich wohl dort.
Très bon accueil, disponibilité à répondre aux questions, très chaleureux. On s'est senti comme a la maison!
Très bon accueil, hôte disponible et sympathique. L'appartement est propre et lumineux. J'ai passé un excellent séjour. Je recommande cette adresse.
