“Central, comfortable Chalon Sur S hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Rounding out our 8 days in Burgundy, we drove from Cluny via the wine route through pretty berze le chatel , puisee and its smaller neighbor fouilly. In Pouisee visit Domain Luquet Roger in an old large mansion for a free wine tasting and buy a bottle of their Macon Villages for 8E. and stayed the last night at this small hotel adjacent to the quai and central to downtown. Our first floor twin ensuite room was clean, twin beds were comfortable, and room had a river view. Just right./fine for an comfortable overnight stay. The hotel is in an 19th c former mansion, traces of which can be seen in the curving stairway and the room's ceiling molding. Hotel has secured parking but manger encouraged us to park on the quai or street just in front of the hotel which was free parking and safe. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Hotel location is an easy 10 minute walk to Rue Stasburg restaurants where we had a very enjoyable and well presented dinner/ reasonably priced menu at Chez Jules.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We had a full day's travelling from Bayonvillers on the Somme region with a stopover to check out the Rue de Champagne so we were quite weary when we arrived. We were greeted by Sylvie who was concerned about us leaving most of our luggage in our car in the front of the hotel so she said we could store it downstairs. I didn't realise until later that it was in her room. She was a real delight. The hotel is old and the furnishings are a little tired but we really enjoyed out night stay. Hotel St Jean is in a great location overlooking the river Saone and close to the Hotel de Ville and the main part of town. We had a very pleasant meal in a local restaurant (Italian) that night. I walked out to the island in the morning and into the square where there were the most fabulous markets. I really enjoyed staying at Hotel St Jean and thought that Chalon-sur-saone was a delightful town

We were given a spacious third floor room overlooking the Soane. The manager, Sylvie couldn't be more helpful, and we enjoyed our overnight stay in Chalon. Hotel looks a bit tired from the outside, but inside is clean and pleasant. Being so clpse to the river, its an easy location to find heading into town from the motorway.

We can't speak for the breakfast, as having been disappointed elsewhere on overnight stops, we didn't book one and stopped off at the local hypermarket outlet when we refueled the car before heading southwards.

Chalon itself seems a pleasant town. We stopped here on a previous trip (at a less pleasant hotel) and were keen to have another visit.

I must say I enjoyed my visit to this hotel and town in August of 2012.
Chalon-sur-Saône is a charming little city, with medieval buildings, friendly people, great pubs and restaurants.
I found this hotel charming, quaint, very reasonably priced and well located with good local parking. Myself and my wife were so impressed by Chalon-sur-Saône and the hotel St. Jean that we hope to visit it again in the not too distant future.

Room Tip: The rooms facing out to the front are excellent as the view of the quays and the Saône is very easy...

We had an amazing stay here on our way south to the riviera. Beautiful hotel, I believe the breakfast was included though it's no great shakes. Comfortable rooms, clean and beautiful common areas. Sylvie, the concierge, is the most bubbly and charming person I have ever met! We enjoyed our stay so much!
