Hôtel ibis Styles Lyon Centre – Gare Part Dieu is an OK hotel but set in a bit of a wasteland. While the room and hotel in general were fine there’s just nothing, apart from the train station closeby which, when I was there, was surrounded by construction activities.
After my long, and might I add superb, lunch at Le Cabaretier I went for a bit of a walk through old Lyon and eventually ended up at Place Ennemond Fousseret where there’s a bar called BerThoM. The same chain I drank at in Montpellier. Knowing the selection of beers would be good I headed on in.
On a sunny Sunday I ventured over to old Lyon and wandered around the bustling streets and laneways and eventually came upon Le Cabaretier.
On my way back to my hotel I jumped off the tram at Guillotière as I wanted to try a place called Les Clameurs, bar fédératif which supports social justice.
Saturday morning in Lyon and I’d jumped on the tram to head off to the confluence of Rhône and Saône Rivers before heading back to Place Carnot for lunch. Walking around the square surrounding Statue de la République are many restaurants and I chose L’Espace Carnot.
