Spent a day in transit in Chalon wanting to avoid autoroute hotels and had a very enjoyable brief stay. We booked the St Jean in advance but were delayed in our arrival. Despite arriving at after 11pm, Sylvie waited up for us and was really welcoming and helpful. The hotel isn't modern, but is situated in a traditional building with... More

What an amazing place, I felt a little like I'd stepped back in time and I loved it. Sylvie and Stanislas were very friendly hosts, I was made very welcome Be aware there is no lift and I was on the top floor but the stairs are beautiful with doors in the panelling and little corridors all over. My room... More

This hotel is sort of old-world French mansion style. It is well worn in places but has many charming characteristics. The Owner, Sylvie gave us good advice on places to eat. We ended up having a delicious meal at Chez Jules. Chalon-Sur-Saone has a pretty town centre. The hotel is very typically French.

This is an old fashioned French hotel in a beautiful old building. Rooms are full of character with high ceilings. No air conditioning. The hotel is right next to the river where the Viking River Cruise boats berth. Good location easy to get to from motorway and within walking distance of the town centre, shops and restaurants.

We stayed here for two nights prior to boarding a Viking River Cruise ship. We knew tht we wouldn't be in the "ritz," but the price was reasonable and we were close to where the river boat would leave from. We had no idea that the boat would dock right across from the hotel! It was a quick walk, less... More

Excellent location. Not a plush modern hotel with lots of facilities but really pleasant traditional French hotel with lots of charm and character. Would certainly use again. Very friendly and helpful staff. I would certainly recommend.

We went on our way to and on our way back on our ski holiday. Staff very good. On booking I got a personal email. Very attentive without being annoying. One of the few hotels that can provide a quad room. Internet not really work if you are at the top of the hotel but nice lounge. Breakfast is fine... More

This hotel is the result of the transformation of an old, middle-class home with no ostentatious features, but with undeniable charm and an obvious comfort. Located close to the old city center of Chalon-sur-Saône and in front of the river Saône, this wealthy 19th-century residence is also near to the street where we find all excellent restaurant of the city...

i stayed in this hotel with my 14-yr-old teenage son for one night en route home from ski trip. I LOVED IT! For me this was a delight - the traditional French hotel and a million miles from the modern characterless shoe-boxes that predominate at budget level and which i personally would prefer to avoid. The room we stayed in... More
