The hotel is in a good location and the staff are friendly and helpful. It is showing signs of its age but is clean and comfortable. It doesn't pretend to be luxurious but is perfectly adequate for a short stay. Try and get a room with a river view.

A family run traditional hotel. Sylvie welcomed us on arrival and could not be more helpful. Given room on second floor with a great view of the river. Original opening in windows with double glazing so very quiet. Comfortable bed. Good breakfast selection. A few minutes walk across the river to the rue de Strasbourg where there is a great... More

We stayed at the Hotel Saint Jean on two occasions in September 2015. Two nights then another night a week later. Stanislas and Sylvie were gracious and helpful, keeping our extra luggage for the week we were away and helping us with parking our rental car. We were two couples (seniors) traveling together and Sylvie arranged for us to have... More

This is not a 4 or 5 star hotel but it is clean and the beds are comfortable. Close to the river and the old town. Bit noisy if you have a front room (traffic). The staff are very friendly and helpful, gave us plates and glasses so we could enjoy a glass of wine in our room. The hotel... More

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

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
