Situated right in the river , and a five minute walk from the centre of town, I thought it was brilliant. The hotel is a bitt shabby, but full of character. There is a surprise round every corner. The staff were first class really helpful. The room was large and comfortable with a view of the river.I paid the extra... 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

My husband and I stayed here for a week and had an exceptional experience. Stan and Sylvie were so friendly and accommodating. The room was spotless and had beautiful windows overlooking the Saone. 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

Friendly chatty staff. Was given hotel information via email. Great location. No lift. Room had faded old world charm and lovely views over the river. The hotel is in a former townhouse with a marble staircase. It looked as if it had been quite grand. Now in need of updating. I did like the fact that it was unique. Parking... More

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
