Beatrice gave us a very informative introduction to Lyon on our arrival. The four of us in our party spent a week and found the apartment an ideal base from which to explore the varied delights Lyon has to offer. We visited old and new parts of the city and were never short of interesting places to eat. We would...

The place has lots of character, right next to the Cathedral, and a short, easy walk to the Metro. Plenty of space. Our unit was in the back with a wonderful view of the Basilica above us. The place is a little funky in an enjoyable quaint way set out over three levels. You enter into the kitchen with the...

Instead of staying in a fancy hotel near the Cathedral, we opted for Beatrice's apartment. What a great decision. The location is ideal for exploring the various neighborhoods of Lyon, and convenient to mass transit. The apartment has everything the traveler(s) would need, with the primary bedroom situated at the back helping ensure a good night's sleep. As noted by...

I initially wanted to stay in the 2 person apartment because it was a little cheaper, but it wasn't available. I'm so happy I ended up in the 4 person apartment overlooking the Cathedral instead - worth every penny! I knew I would want to spend a lot of time in the apartment relaxing, and this was so perfect. Never...

It was the ultimate wonderful experience! The location can not be better, in front of the Cathedral. Surrounded by all the shops and restaurants. The apartment is located in the top floor of a traditional building. Very quiet, well equipped, luminous, trendy and clean! The apartment views are fantastic! You can sit on the couch and contemplate the Cathedral. Not...

Beatrice and Pierre are wonderful hosts! This is our second stay at Apart-Observatoire Saint Jean and won't be our last for sure. We left Lyon the first time longing for more, so this time we booked a two week stay. Beatrice was very helpful in securing reservations for us and making certain all of our needs were taken care of....

We especially enjoyed the great view from the appartment and that it is so centrally located. It was perfect for our family of four, as we had seperate rooms for us and our Boys. The host was very friendly and explained to us how to get around and which bakeries are open on Sundays. We felt well looked after. Even...

We arrived in Lyon on 28 August 2015 and spent 3 nights in Apart' Observatoire Saint Jean - Côté ouest. The location of this cozy and romantic apartment is ideal for visiting all of Lyon, especially Vieux Lyon; sights to see, in walking distance, include Cathédrale Saint-Jean-Baptiste de Lyon, the Saône & Rhone, Basilique de Fourvière, great shops and restaurants....

A great place to stay in the centre of Old Lyon - close to the cathedral, cafes, restaurants, metro and attractions. We have traveled around the world and have never stayed in anything quite like it. You overlook the cathedral square with a bird's eye view. The apartment is clean and has everything you need. The negatives are the steps...
