About this listing

A charming bedroom with an integrated bathroom, comfortable and quiet, in a awesome historic appartment in the heart of the "Vieux Lyon". And 17th century angels are taking care of the visitors...

The space

This charming bedroom is in an historical and comfortable appartment, in the heart of the renaissance/middle age area of the town. The decoration of the overall apppartment is unique, both warm and original, made up of precious furniture. Here you enter into a special, exceptionnal word. It is at the 4th floor with lift. Lightfull and quiet...
The location is ideal: 2 minutes walking from "Place Bellecourt" and 200 meters from "Cathédrale Saint Jean", with a public Car parking at 50 meters. 50 meters walking to the river's (la Saône) banks. All the essential touristic spots are in the area : can visit everything by walking. Around, you can find many restaurants, and all kind of shops.
You are here in the largest italian renaissance area in Europe after Venice, and feel like being in another times. Visiting museums, walking in the pedestrian area and visiting the famous "traboules" is a gorgious experience.
The bedroom, of approx 15m2 has an open bathroom with a large "design" shower. Cupboards are empty for your clothes and stuff. The electric bed is 160x200cm (2 matresses of 80x200cm), of high quality mattresses (Tempur) providing an outstanding confort. Bath towels are furnished.

Guest access

Access to the lounge and kitchen, being conscious that this is my leaving place. If the curtains are closed, this room become private. Of course, you can store your things in the fridge

Interaction with guests

I like exchanging with my guests... But if you need to be quiet and in intimacy, no problem: the bedroom has a position in the appartment which gives you this possibility.

Other things to note

WIFI is included.
I will be happy to offer you, on demand, a "lyonese breakfast" for 8€ per person : tea or coffee, "brioches aux pralines", bread, butter, honney, fruit juice
I have a cat, Josephine. She is very timid, and stay 23h/24h on my bed, sleeping... And can go out to make a little show to welcome visitors...

It was my first Airbnb experience as a traveller and it was terrific. The location was excellent, easy access to the old Lyon and the closeness of the Metro made it easy to get about. As soon as I arrived Marie showed me where everything in the apartment was, sat down with me, with a map marking the must see places of Lyon. That was extremely helpful. The apartment is full of personality that made my stay even more 'French'. There are nice decorative touches in the room plus a very comfortable bed. Marie made me feel very welcomed into her home and I would not hesitate to reccommend it and indeed go back again.

Marie and her apartment are gloriously stylish, unique and eclectic. We had the most brilliant short stay in Lyon, and can't wait to return - but truly it was made doubly fun and interesting by staying at Marie's place. The location is unsurpassable - absolutely perfect; stay here and you will be made so welcome and enjoy every minute! Marie made some excellent suggestions for restaurants and visits to interesting places, and I would add Wednesday nights at the Jazz club on Place Chardonnet, Fourviere Nuits, and Mokxa Cafe, Rue de l'Abbe Rozier. Thank you Marie, and lovely Lyon.

If it is a creativie stimulating environment you are hoping to stay at, then Marie's apartment is the one. Beautifully appointed , super clean with great character and in a brilliant location. Everything is so close. From wonderful interesting shops , restaurants, cafes to the Rhone River and surrounded by the most amazing architecture . Almost film like in atmosphere. You can sit with card playing locals drinking coffe or dine with stimulating food , all within 50 metres of her place . As for Marie. Well let's just say she cares. Fully understands the vibe of this stimulating city and therefore willingly passes on her secrets to you. The miniature theatre and set design museum is an absolute must! She cares about people about music about her students and her guests. The lady is in tune alright. Staying there was a blessing.

Great place to stay. Marie is a lovely person and a very good resource. Lots of maps, restaurant recommendations, and "insider" tips of the area. If you want to be in history - Marie's place is the place to be! Just remember to take some earplugs if you are a light sleeper. The streets have a lot of echo and can be a bit loud at night but it did not bother me at all! Marie went out of her way to be accessible and was very gracious when we showed up a half an hour ahead our check in time. Thank you Marie for making our stay in Lyon so pleasant.

Exceptional on all levels: communication, consideration, kindness, hospitality and location! We enjoyed our stay in Lyon and it was a great hub to launch into other areas for day-tripping!

Charming room in a great location in Vieux Lyon. Marie and her cat Josephine were excellent hosts. Central to everything in the old Lyon. Just a note to light sleepers: Saturday nights can be very loud in the immediate area and you will hear inebriated nightclubbers all night long. Despite that, highly recommended.
