Has anybody got any info/ideas on a good place to stop in Lyon over night, would like to be near centre but also go into town without feeling paranoid about the boat.

There's an ok marina just before the confluence of Saone and Rhone, with a tram stop at the end of the harbour that takes you to the centre.

" . . . An excellent new Halte Fluviale opened at Perrache (partially, in advance of full completion in 2012/13) in May 2011. It has moorings for 20 boats, for a maximum stay of 4 days and a maximum length of 12m. Closed from October to April. The capitainerie (08:00 to 21:00, 7 days), although in temporary accommodation, has all facilities and also controls the passarelle (footbridge) at the entrance. Hoot to request opening or you may be able to pass underneath if 2.75m air-height or less. Capitainerie also VHF Ch.18 and telephone 06 89 99 45 11

There are bars and restaurants nearby and a Lidl supermarket. Also near a tram stop with direct routes through to Lyon-Part-Dieu mainline railway station and with a tram route from there direct to Lyon Saint-Exupéry airport (BA, Easyjet). . . "
