Lyon Presqu'ile appartmenthotels

We'd like to travel to Lyon late spring or early summer. I've located two appartment-hotels. They seem to offer the advantage of a little more room than the typical hotel. As we'd like to stay about two weeks and use Lyon as a base for visiting other towns, I was wondering if anyone had information they could offer on Citadines Presqu'ile or Resideal Bellecour or any other establishments like these two. From what I've read, I think I'd like to stay on the Presqu'ile but am certainly open to any suggestions.

Coco, did you top this thread because you are looking for info on appart-hotels in Lyon? I can give some feedback on the Citadines establishment on the Presqu'ile, if that's any help.

Hi hanl, not exactly. Jim wrote me for a stay in Dijon but unfortunately we can't make it. I just wanted to top his posting.

I'm sure Jim would like to have your advice!

OK, makes sense now!

My mother and aunt stayed for just over a week at the Citadines on the Presqu'ile. I was living in Lyon then so visited them in their accommodation a few times.
Anyway the residence/hotel is very well located on a little pedestrian street just off one of the popular restaurant streets in Lyon (rue Mercière) and a short walk from the metro (Cordeliers or Bellecour), the old town and the rue de la République.

They had a 2-room apartment with a double bed plus fold-out sofa bed in the living room. My mum slept on the sofa-bed and said it was fine and comfortable enough. The apartment was spacious enough for two, with a decent kitchen area and living room. They enjoyed their stay.

One thing worth noting, however, is that there is no air-conditioning (as far as I remember), though I think there was at least one fan (I don't remember them finding it too hot, despite being there during a warm spell.)

It would be worth requesting a room at the back (overlooking the courtyard) rather than the street, as there are a few restaurants and bars nearby with outdoor tables, which could be noisy in the evenings (especially if it's warm and windows are open).

Hope that helps.

Thanks Hanl. We did go to Lyon and stay in Citadines. Your advice is right on target. I wish I had known it at the time. It really was a nice area but it was warmer than expected and we were on the street side. With open windows we got quite a bit of noise throughout the night. We thoroughly enjoyed Lyon in any case.
