Premiere Classe Lyon Centre - Gare Part Dieu
Travel Blogs from Lyon
7th August- Pretty sailing along the Saone River in the direction of Lyon. Just outside the city we saw the Paul Bocuse restaurant. Once we were moored in Lyon we did a city tour beginning with the hill of Fourviere to see the beautiful cathedral and city views. Many wonderful mosaics on the interior walls. Then it was down to the old city below the hill. Went through one of the hidden lane ways called traboules used by the silk weavers to transport ...
... and then a zoo. There was no entrance fee or anything, so I went from looking at cacti, to seeing some giraffes wandering around. It was pretty cool.
I left there, crossed the river and went walking up into a more residential area of the city. I didn’t really know where I was going, but since I have my offline maps on my phone, I feel like I can never really get lost. It means I can be a bit more ...
smooth cruising through my intern-ship
I left the US to go to France to experience the professional life in a two month intern-ship. The student rhythm and the professional one being very different, I was able to fully enjoy the city between the night trips to the Rhône and the few week-end walking here and there. ...
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

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. ...
... the Senate this month to come into force, but Sarkozy is giving a hard push behind it, so it appears inevitable. What is clear regarding this issue is that things are going to get worse before they get better.
We are studying in the "SELF" program, which is comprised of 200 international students from all over the world who are leaning french as a second language, but studying courses in English. The most striking ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsPremiere Classe Lyon Centre - Gare Part Dieu
Service was extremely helpful, rooms were more spacious than we had anticipated. The bathrooms are tiny, comparable to those on a airplane - not troublesome, unless that is a big factor to you. Only allows three people rooms (we had four people 2 of the 4 nights we stayed) so some stealth maneuvering had to be done.
Location was close to the Train station but farther from everything to see in Lyon. I would have stayed in Vieux Lyon looking back. But we walked most everywhere. Easy to find when using "The Pencil" as a landmark.
