A rather "tired", old hotel and, due to its structure, not much they can do about it. however, the room we stayed in had obviously had a makeover and they had made an effort to update it. Can highly recommend "Le Grill Saint-Laurent" in rue de strasbourg for an evening meal with superb service.

Excellent location, very good staff competence and a room comfortable and not noisy . All the structure start to show its age even if the cleaning is good everywhere. Only the breakfast is not so hight as expected.

The hotel is very well situated for exploring the town. There is ample parking nearby (although most spaces have to paid for). The staff were very welcoming and very helpful with local information. We were just passing through and only stayed one night be we would be happy to stay longer on another occasion.

The hotel is quaint but pleasant. The staff is excellent. We were traveling with a small baby, and they helped us out tremendously, even going so far as to locate us on the ground floor near the entrance once they saw how many items we had to carry for the baby. They are very friendly and knowledgeable, and they had good restaurant tips. All in all, a very pleasant experience.

Just curious; we were wondering why European Hotels don't provide face clothes in the bath rooms. We knew this from previous travels in Europe but forgot because the River Cruise ships provide them for their guests. This was are first visit to Chalon-sur-Saone. We enjoyed the photograhy museum and the lovely park/garden behind St. Vincent's church and the promenade along the river.

la signora che gestisce l'hotel è molto simpatica e accogliente. Chalon sur Saone, in generale è una cittadina superquieta. Consiglio il ristorante italiano in rue saint george.

Easy to find hotel, right on the Saone, with very friendly personnel. A large old town house with lots of old fashioned flair, clean and tidy, some corners however somewhat run down and in need of a brush up. Parking was lucky, we found space directly at the front door but probably that is not the rule. A good place to start your excursions through town from (what we didn't have time to do) and also to walk over to the other side of the river where you find plenty of charming bistros and restaurants. Considering we were almost in the middle of the city it was very quiet during the night. The bathroom was clean but so make shift it reminded of grandmothers first attempt at renovation. The breakfast room is obviously too small for the large hotel, quite a number of other guests had to wait until they found a free chair and table to sit at. No breakfast buffet, very French style with croissant and baguette, a little butter and jam.

Now this hotel is a real gem! Do not expect luxury though, I really have to say I felt more like staying at a friend's than being at a hotel! Very kind and friendly ladies I did not have the possibility to find out if they speak any other languages apart from French, so brush it up just in case. My room was a last minute booking, spacious and a mean really-really big! I saw other rooms they were even better. The building is charmingly old, the room decoration is not expensive but still someone is been thinking about how to make a you feel home, nice lights. It was the kind of hotel I used to stay at with my parents in France 25 years ago, before they started economising and creating weird shaped cubby holes to fit more and more customers in them.

Nice place to sleep over while traveling somewhere else. Didn't have breakfast, so nothing to say here. Wi-Fi works on the first two floors but you need to go through multiple steps to log in! Front desk manager/owner is SUPER Staff -helpful and pleasant but cleaning lady starts banging on the door at 11.30 and continues to do so until you check out. Would stay again. Room vs price? It's worth it.
