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... More

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

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.
