My husband and I stayed here for a week and had an exceptional experience. Stan and Sylvie were so friendly and accommodating. The room was spotless and had beautiful windows overlooking the Saone. Location was excellent. The breakfast was delicious, including fresh baguettes, croissants, pain chocolate and also choices of cheeses and yogurt. We highly recommend this hotel and look... More

The location is absolutely perfect, right on the shore of the river and blocks away from the city center. Everything is old-fashioned but in a very charming way. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The receptionist moved his own car away in order to give me his parking space.

Simple rooms with basic facilities. Location in centre a bonus for price. Hotel comfortable and clean. Set overlooking the river, parking on street free on a Sunday but payable until 1900 daily. Private parking available 8 euros day. Good value for money

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel.

A charming hotel overlooking the river in the centre of town. Faded grandeur but clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. Much nicer to stay in than the newer characterless plastic hotels on the edge of town. Sylvie was friendly and welcoming and also emailed before we arrived. We parked outside the front door overnight, though it is possible to reserve a... More

Friendly chatty staff. Was given hotel information via email. Great location. No lift. Room had faded old world charm and lovely views over the river. The hotel is in a former townhouse with a marble staircase. It looked as if it had been quite grand. Now in need of updating. I did like the fact that it was unique. Parking... More

The hotel is located right on the river, in center of the city. It is reasonably priced and nothing to complain about but as I came into the hotel, the owner quoted me 50 € including breakfast. When I settled the bill with the lady on evening duty, she knew of nothing and I had to pay more than 60... More

My love of this place started through the lovely friendly caring and informative emails I received before.arrived. I was late arriving and someone stayed more than an hour extra to let me in and even organised a taxi to pick me up at the station. The hotel may be old but it has so much character and all were so... More

Terrific and nexpensive place to stay for a night or two in Chalon, especially if your connecting to a river cruise. Location can't be beat. Hotel is no more than 100 yards from where the cruise vessels tie up. Also just a couple of blocks from Rue de Layon, major and colorful market street on Sundays selling everything from wine...

This hotel is right near the centre, but not noisy. You can park just outside for free along the river. The lady in charge, Sylvie, is delightful, speaks some English and is very helpful in suggesting things to see and do and where to eat. The rooms are quaintly decorated, I think I spotted a Laura Ashley wallpaper circa 1980,... More
