Hi dear visitors, welcome to Lyon !
I propose a triple room that is shared (possible to have it only for you if you pay for the extra beds and if available).
I offer :
- clean bed sheets, blanket, towel
- superfast wireless internet
- basic supplies for breakfast and meal (including pasta and rice)
- maps, information about lyon
The flat is 80 square meters, with a nice living room, kitchen and bathroom that you share with two other rooms that are usually rented for long stays.
In the dormitory, all is included, nothing to bring as bed linen, towels, cleaning, soap and shampoo, all provided :)
Warning to smokers : smoking is prohibited in the whole flat and you will need to go downstairs to smoke outside the building !
Metro is 8 minutes by foot, bus is down the flat, bike rental as well. You have small shops and all you need around.
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.
We had an amazing stay at Romain and Galina's place. The lady who takes care of the building, Natalie was very kind and helped us out by indicating some good tourist spots to visit as did Romain. The facilities are clean and comfortable and we could make ourselves at home. The location is quite close to the Lumiere metro station which makes access to various parts of town very easy. There is also the C13 busstop right in front of the house which connects tonthe main train station in Lyon. Many reataurants and grocery stores are closeby! Price is also reasonable! Had a great time! Thanks
Très bien! Allez-y!
It was a very nice place, Romain and his friends are helpful, funny and great to eb around. The bathroom and kitchen were big and clean. Very recommendable!
A nice flat, although the room is shared there is plenty of common space in the living area so it never felt crowded, and thanks also for giving me peace of mind with my very last-minute arrangement!
L'appartement est bien situé à Lyon (pas trop loin de la Part-Dieu) et assez bien désservi par les moyens de transports.
L'hôtesse est bien sympa et y on peut bavarder agréablement.
L'appartement est assez bien fait aussi et si l'on est indifférent à dormir en chambre avec des autres personnes on peut tranquilement passer un bon séjour.
Donc, un logement que je conseille bien! :)
