All amenities to hand and our hosts were welcoming and helpful. We hope to stay again on our next trip to visit family in Lyon. Thank you!

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      This was 1 of 2 apartments we rented for over 2 weeks during the 2016 Euros. This apartment was well situated, within walking distance of many sights, restaurants, shopping, and a daily outdoor market. It was very thoughtfully equipped with items not usually found in a rental apartment. The appliances were all new. The owners were very considerate, showing us around the neighborhood. They even offered to show us a nearby village our last weekend there. The deposit was returned very quickly. The 19th century building has a dark, long passageway to access the elevator. The primary occupants of the building are small businesses. Small by US standards (and much smaller than our other apartment that cost the same), the room layout is a bit odd. But it has a quaintance and charm that we really enjoyed. There were only a few things that tarnished our experience. First, it was surprisingly noisy. Even though there are few restaurants or drinking establishments below us, the ones that were nearby had loud patrons. There were motorcycles riding up and down the street in the middle of the night. Some, maybe all of this can be explained by the Euro fans celebrating, so the experience should be different at other times. Second, the apartment does not have air conditioning, contrary to what is advertised in the apartment's description. Hopefully the owners will correct this misinformation. There were a few very hot days where the supplied fans were not enough; opened windows led to insect bites. Last, the owners charge for water and electricity, and the rates are extremely high. Our mistake was not getting a firm quote on the costs before making the reservation. When the rates were quoted to us when taking possession, it seemed like they were made up on the spot. We checked the prices for electricity in Lyon after returning home, and the owner's cost was 35% of what they charged us, and that was the Lyon prime rate cost. Even though we did not occupy the apartment for 3 days, the charge amounted to about 340 euros. Remember, no A/C. We ran laundry at night, and did not use the clothes dryer. We understand owners doubling their normal rental rates because of special events like the Euros, but to charge so much for electricity and water left a bad taste. My only suggestion to them is to raise their daily rates and include the electricity/water charges. Most travellers would prefer not to be surprised by a big bill like this.
