I stay in St Etienne on a regular basis for work.
This is not a huge city, so you won't find big fancy hotels there.
I stayed at Furania a couple of times, latest of which this April.
It is very conveniently located in the city center, close to Hotel De Ville, but in a pretty quiet street. You're a mere 5 minute walk from many bars & restaurants, either on Jean Jaures plaza, or "Rue des Martyrs de Vingre", a paved street where everyone goes out.
This is not a luxury hotel, but the owners did a very good job. It is rather charming.
They are very welcoming.
Rooms are all different. The ones on the back side are a bit more quiet than the ones on the street side, obviously. All are equipped with cable TV and wireless internet, and per my experience are clean.
Breakfast is good, lots of choice in a large buffet.
The hotel has limited parking space (not included in the price but pretty cheap), but in case you can't park there, there is a big underground parking at Hotel de Ville, 1 minute walking from the hotel, which won't cost more.
I will most likely stay there next time I'm going to St Etienne.
