    Very small rooms, extremely hot in the summer - no air conditioning at all. The toilet is in the wardrobe with a very funny rotating wall. Never take the parking because it is located in the basement of another building in some 200m from the hotel and it's very small and dark. You may park your car right at the hotel entranse outside. There are always places available and it's free during the night. The location of the hotel is near the university, good for students and visitors.

Smart Bikes

by scanos

I am travelling to Lyon with my family in July and want to be able to use the smart bikes. I understand that this requires some sort of registration process. Can anyone advise how I can do this and if it is open to non Lyonaisses.

Everything you want to know can be found here:

It is really a great system. You should take a short term card. You need a credit card. Where you are living is not of importance.

Thanks
Can I buy a card over the web, if so, can you please advise from which I can do this.
many thanks

You have to go to one of the bike stations. Just follow the instructions of the machine. The card will be issued by this machine. Sometimes cards are expired or there is another problem, but normally it should work.

Re: Smart Bikes

Thanks for that. Unfortunately, last time I was in Lyon, I was advised that I had to apply four weeks in advance. I will only be in Lyon for 2 weeks in July.

I think you can always buy a short time card and receive it immediately, but it is only valid for one week. Maybe you have to apply for a long-time card in adavance.

b1bob's Lyon restaurant tip

by b1bob about Brioche Doree

They have all manner of baked goods, but they also have savoury food for a light lunch such as quiche and sandwiches. I had Quiche Lorraine because I don't trust most restaurants to make sandwiches the way I want them. The quiche was great, but Brioche Dorée is a huge chain.

St-Nizier Church

by keeweechic

Built in the 15th century the St-Nizier Church is easily recognisable by its two spires, one covered in tiles and the other in stone. Quite a mix, it has a Gothic north spire, a Renaissance main porch and a 19th century Neo-Gothic south spire.

From 1320 onwards the centre of local political power was established here in a chapel next to Saint-Nizier whose great bell rang every night when the city gates were closed.

Bartholdi Fountain

by rcsparty

The Batholdi Fountain is one of the highlights of this square. The sculptor of the fountain also created the Statue of Liberty. The fountain has a tremdous amount of detail and you can almost feel the four horses, which represent four rivers racing for the ocean, pulling the chariot forward. The fountain is very reminiscent of those you see in Rome, both Trevi and the one in Piazza Navona.

A Week in Lyon

by Roadquill

"Deer Me!"

We travel thousands of miles, and my kids spend hours with the deer in Parc de la Tete d'Or. We went there for the soccer, Confederation Cup, to support our National Team when they played Cameron, Turkey and Brazil. The food was marvelous. The days were spent eating, at the park, shopping and several museums. The Centre d'Histoire de la Resistance et de la Deportation was very moving. Especially when you see the Place Bellecour now and in the photographs from the Centre. We had wonderful meals at La Splendide and Bocuse's L'est.

"Walking And Checking Out the Town"

Lyon has many wonderful buildings and sites. After we checked out the Gallo-Roman Theatres (which are still used) we went to the Place des Terreaux.

"Parc Tete d'Or"

What a great park! In addition to enjoying the outside space, there was this great cactus arboreum that had the most amazing cactii
