Finally the rain has stopped!

Finally the rain has stopped!

We left a very waterlogged site and headed towards Lyon and "Camping des Barolles", thankfully the rain stopped on the way here and so far has not returned in any force!

The campsite is situated about 7km from the city centre, its not a place we would recommend for a long period as its got more of a carpark feel to it rather than ...

... watch a crew set up for a rock concert this evening (for which we'll be home in bed, but what a fantastic venue). We enjoyed a leisurely multi-course lunch, although after the very large appetizer, Thomas got ready to go, assuming that we were done. The subsequent entree, dessert, and coffee stretched for much of the afternoon, and fuelled our walking through local neighbourhoods. Between ...

First day in Lyon

... the hostel around 2pm. I was absolutely exhausted and just relaxed here for most of the day. I’ve met a lot of cool people during the day here, most of them travelling around Europe like I am. I stayed here with an American guy, an Irish guy, and a Moroccan guy to watch all three football matches. The last one being USA vs. Ghana, and USA pulled out the last minute victory. It was a great start to the tournament for America. ...

... br> and at an angle…yes, we all went to college.) Denis’ sister, Anne, was there
with her kids. Eve (11) and Lucille (8) were coming with us to the mountains,
and lucky for me, they lived in England for 5 years and speak fluent English.

I was actually quite content with having to sleep in the
bunk bed one more night because that meant I would be able to see the mountains
as we went, instead of driving at night in the dark. ...

The French Revolution and the Marists

The second pilgrimage.

My journey to Marist places of origin and pilgrimage began in Lyons where the idea conceived some years earlier of establishing a Society dedicated to Mary emerged.
Lyons is the second largest city in France and dates back to the year 43 BC. A plaque on the hill of Fourviere marks the spot where Lucius Munatius Plancus perform the founding rites of the colony Lugdunum and as is said too often " the rest is history". But it ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel La Residence Lyon

    Lifesaver!

    from

    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.

    A real find!

    from

    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)

    Fantastic value

    from

    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.

    Excellent value

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Great Hotel

    from

    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.

    Great value

    from

    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!

    Amazing location

    from

    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.

    Great Find!!

    from

    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.

    Good

    from

    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.
