The location is ideal; close to Metro stop, and within a few steps of great restaurants with authentic French cuisine. Looks of shopping options close by, short walk to major museums and silk companies. There are many stairs, but good exercise, and as the apt is in the middle of a hillside it was cool despite 100 deg temperatures outside. Great hostess, and friends who helped us get luggage up and down stairs and provided transportation to airport for a fee. We would stay there again.
Great location! Stairs are definitely tricky with luggage. There's a VERY limited supply of hot water and we did not have any silverware or utensils to eat with at the flat. We also had to go out and buy a wine opener. But, other than those few things, we really enjoyed our stay in Lyon and the apartment was a great spot to relax and unwind after a day of enjoying the city!
