About this listing
Right between the place des Terreaux and the old Lyon (2 minutes walk each), the flat is an attic duplex with great view over Fourvière hill.
The street is very quiet.
This studio is centrally located, nearby place des Terreaux and place Sathonay, just 2 minutes walk from the old city on the other side of the Saone river. On the last floor of a 6 and 1/2 floor building (no lift, be prepared, but the view worth it !), you have a double bed in mezzanine, a main place with kitchen and sofa (around 40m2) and a bathroom with a bath. A simple matress is available for a third person, who can also try the hamac ! There is a great view on the roofs and Fourviere basilic, many restaurant in the area. Still the street is very quiet (almost no traffic due to street configuration).
Access by métro Hôtel de Ville, direct bus n°C3 from Part Dieu railway station, direct bus n°31 from Perrache railway station.
The exact address is rue Tourret, but the access is through rue Bouteille. This is right in the city center, near Place Sathoney, half way between Place des Terreaux (next to the Opera) and the old Lyon City.

Nous sommes venus passer un long week-end chez Line et nous n'avons pas été déçus !
L'appart est top, idéalement situé, les 6 étages à pieds se font finalement assez facilement, un peu de sport ne fait de mal à personne !
L'appart était très propre, fidèle aux photos, nous nous sommes sentis comme chez nous. Line est très arrangeante, et gère très bien ses locations avec l'aide des personnes travaillant à l'épicerie juste en bas de l'immeuble !
Un grand merci, ce fut parfait, je vous le recommande à 100% !
The appartment is the perfect location to discover Lyon. Situated in a lively quarter with a bakery, grocery stores and restaurants around the corner. The old city can be reached in a few minutes by crossing the river through the footbridge.
The appartment is very well equiped and cosy. You feel at home immediately. The provision of bed linnen, towels and free wifi is a real asset. Getting the key from the shop downstairs is practical and the shop keepers are very helpfull.
The description and photos of the place are very accurate. I can recommend this room wholeheartedly and if we come back to Lyon we will surely stay there again.
The apartment is beautiful and in a brilliant location. Everything was clean and tidy and Lyon is a lovely place to visit. We would recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit Lyon.
The apartment itself was exactly like the pictures. Very nice and the view and location are excellent.
The stairs are an issue and are much steeper than we expected though for a weekend with a small bag would easier. There wasn't a huge amount of communication with Line but the people in the shop where we picked up and dropped of keys were friendly.
Nice bars, restaurants and shops nearby. I think for the price you could do a lot worse in Lyon.
Had a very good time at Lyon and in Lines flat. Thank you for being our host. :-) When you book the flat you should know that you have 19x steps to walk. In summer it is little hot but the view over Lyon is unbeatable.
We had a great stay at this wonderful flat in the centre of lyon. We didn't meet line in person but everything was organized perfectly and equipment of the flat fulfilled all needs for a comfortable holiday. Thank you line
We had a bad arrival suprise. Line (Marie) had told us that check in time is 17:00 in the afternoon! We had learned this after our booking so we had to spend many hours at a cafe. But when we arrived to get the keys from the downstairs shop's owner Walid, he said that check in time is 19:00! When we told our agrrement he rudely said "This is not a hotel!" We didn't feel welcome at all. He was angry at Line (Marie) also. He said "I am the manager of this place. How can she organise it this way etc"
We were very suprised and confused.
The building and the stairs were very very dirty. So the first impression was not good. Stairs are almost scary at night. There is no light in the building.
The pictures of the apartment are photoshoped I believe. The actual place looks a lot older. But it was alright and cleanliness was ok. We had to put two sheets on the beds because they looked dirty, old and stained.
I don't believe that anybody lives in this apartment. At first we thought it was Line's apartment decorated lovingly. It is kind of some old stuff put together to prepare an apartment to rent.
The area is very central and the view is nice.
