We found it exceptionally clean and totally charming. It's also superbly well located with lovely views over the Saone, easy access to great walks and cycleways. We would unreservedly recommend the apartment and hope to return soon. A gem! Joseph & Ilona Frayne.

The location is very central and ideal for sight seeing Lyon. The Old Town is within easy walking distance. Alexis is charming and very helpful. I would certainly go back to this apartment and would highly recommend it.
