... check out of my last night in pre-booked accommodation because I hadn't sorted out where I was going to sleep the next night... But finally I made my way to Greenwich and a hostel there. On the way I had one train delayed and one fantastic chat with a homeless man. So you could say I got off to a flying start! Greenwich is a stunning little part of London with lots of pubs, a beautiful park and a few museums. But it is a long way into the city. ...
... soon, but we're in France... still. But I do still have something to look forward to, I can't decide if it's on par with my birthday or not, but that thing is freeeeeeedommmm!!! Sweet freedom! Filled with the scent of the flowers of spring :) A little dilemma crossed my mind recently. So I had a rule about my blog initially. The rule was: anyone in the blog is not allowed to read the blog. For me it'd be like the actors on stage deciding to pierce the fourth ...
Before I begin my tales, I need to give you a little
background about French vacation time. If I end up staying here to work, know
it’s because their situation is just too hard to pass up. Every 6 weeks of
school, the children get two weeks off for vacation, and they also get a
summer. Most people who work salaried jobs also get a lot of vacation time, but
I don’t think you’re ready to hear this. I’ll give you the bad news first. ...
... I don't want to hear his excuses or explanations. That's not love. When you love someone it's not about you anymore, it's all about them. But this begging, this was about him. It really felt pathetic. Anyway, he went off to have a smoke and I went off and went to bed. When I woke up on Tuesday morning the lady at reception, Hira, said that he'd called that morning to see how I was going. Gosh! I just shake my head at him. If he wanted me to stay he never would have treated ...
... gravy stuff with different strange coloured sausages. There were a few locals in there, a greyhound dog and a few kids. So we left and found another. We wanted to sit outside as the sun was shining, well the didn't particularly like that, but out he pops with placements, glass, cutlery etc and menus. We just wanted a roll (baguette). He didn't like that either and took away all the table setting. We got our baguette jambon and fromarge (ham and cheese) and it was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel La Residence Lyon
This hotel rescued, what could have been an UGLY trip, and an UGLY family squabble! Last spring I went to Lyon for 10 days for my sister's wedding. I had booked another hotel ( name escapes me, must have blocked it out) based on internet pictures, price etc. ( I was on a budget). I was meeting a friend in France and we requested a double room.
Some French hotels we've stayed in have left a lot to be desired, but La Residence hits all the right buttons. It is a modest hotel and the price reflects this, but it has real quality. Our room was very large, quiet and spotless, the bathroom has just been renovated and the breakfast provided much more than you often get in a three star hotel in France. Added to this were friendly, efficent staff and a marvellous location and you have an ideal base for exploring a city, which surprised us in how lovely it was. The Old Town was very interesting and do try and catch up with the lovely murals on many buildings, including those in the 'museum' devoted to Tony Garnier, Lyon's famous architect. The great new cycle hire scheme is to be admired - lots of lovely bikes on every street corner for residents and tourists to use ( providing you register)
We rented a house in provence for 3 weeks and took time out to spend two nights in Lyon as the Hotel La Residence. At 70 euros/night it was an amazing bargain. Totally comfortable king size bed (great matress) and newly renovated bathroom with a deep tub. Unlike the more upscale hotels, they provided only shampoo and soap but no big deal - the towels were fluffy and nice. Breakfast was also very good and fun to eat in the large breakfast room. Excellent location. We walked everywhere and good stores all around. Friendly staff, free internet use... I highly recommend.
Small, clean, friendly and exceptionally convenient hotel in a pedestrian street with many affordable shops, and good restaurants within half a mile or so. Nearby cafes less exciting but super shopping in the next street. Minutes from either of two metro stops and within an easy walk of many interesting sites and of the Old Town. If you want more luxury go for the Globe et Cecil at twice the price, but at 70 euros a night for a double room this hotel was an excellent, if unexciting, choice. If on a budget or wanting an inexpensive break you couldn't do better! Have breakfast out although it was only 6.5 euros at the hotel.
Fantastic Location, Great Value
Three things that set Hotel Residence apart are the location, service and value. Location: on the Presqu'Ile of Lyon, very close to the Place Bellecour and within reasonable walking distance of virtually everything of interest in Lyon. Service: the staff was friendly and service-oriented. Value: we paid 70 euro per night for a double, which is an amazing value considering location and the rooms. The rooms were nice, clean and large by European standards, but nothing fancy. This is by far the best value I have ever seen in a French hotel.
We (party of 3) stayed at Hotel la Residence on our first night in Europe. This was the best hotel of the trip. The front desk staff during the day spoke great English and was very nice and helpful. The hotel is in a great location and you can walk from the hotel to anywhere you want to go in the town. The rooms were large and very clean, bathroom was very nice, and the hotel was extremely quiet at night and we had a room that overlooked the road. This hotel is a great deal for what you get. I would definitely stay here again.
This is a no frills hotel, that is clean and safe. Great location and friendly staff. You use an old metal key that you keep at the front desk when you are not in the room. Excellent for budget travellers!
We were so surprised by this hotel, the location is perfect, the rooms immaculate and a great price! The staff was friendly and spoke perfect english. It was also very easy to find.
We went to Lyon a few weeks ago and booked the Hotel La Residence as we were told by a friend to stay near Place Bellacour - what a great hotel!
It is located right in the middle of the pedestrianised street, 5 mins walk away from the metro, 5 min walk to the old town and a 5 min walk to the restaurants in the new town. A brilliant location for anyone wanting to explore the best Lyon has to offer.
The rooms were lovely and quite spacious, especially when compared to some French hotel rooms, the staff were lovely - breakfast, well we didn't eat in the hotel, with so many lovely restaurants nearby - why would you want to?
We are going back to Lyon for a 1 night stopover before hitting the Alpes in Feb - we will definately be staying here again.
I just came back from Lyon (Spring 04) and would recommend this hotel - it is on rue Victor Hugo, the main shopping street, in the center of town. The room is standard, but the staff is very friendly and polite and helpful. It is also not far from Gare Lyon Perrache - an easy 5 min walk from the Hotel.
