Well...last day today. We got an earlier start today and made our way to the subway station. We took the subway (and only took the wrong subway once) to a different area of Lyon called "Croix-Rousse". We did some sightseeing and shopping, checked out the markets in the morning then had lunch at a wonderful little cafe. We had a guided tour booked after lunch which brought us through the silk district. Again we were shown many of the Traboules, some of these more artistic than those of ...
... with them. And he thinks I have a cute accent when I speak French. It sounds English, haha! He's very nice too. He had to go see some apartments on Saturday morning, but he said he didn't want to leave me by myself. But it was fine. I've been by myself for the last 6 and a half months, I think I'll be alright fir a few hours. So in the morning, I chatted to my friend Kristy and then bummed around a bit until Amine came back. He wanted to take me out to dinner and a movie in ...
... we spent on them, it wasn't cheap. €20 - €30 for each long stretch of the motorway you did! It's a double ended sword, do you take country roads which will take longer but be cheaper? Or do you take the motorway and pay these extortionate prices?
The roads leading to the campsite were absolutely indescribable, they were literally something out of a movie, somewhere Top Gear would drive a Mustang. They were so picturesque. I made ...
... is really supportive too. I suppose she's just nervous. It's understandable. A lot of people paint pregnancy out to be a glorious, feminine and beautiful thing. I suppose the end result is beautiful and amazing. But the process can be a bit horrific and painful. And she's sick of feeling sick all the time. Poor girl. I think she'd make a great mother though. Anyways, with my hangover, my concentration span was not the best. So I headed home, stopped by a ...
Woke u about 930 again had some brekky looking out over the river We decided to hire bikes today and explore the city before the tour comes in this afternoon. We rode into the city and had a bit of a bite to eat before finding a small park on the tour route and waited for the riders to come through. The bikes are so cool. Just pick them up from one place and then ride, drop them off ...

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.
