“This is More like the Worst Western-Awful”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

We had just travelled over 6 hours from Italy to get here for the night.We just wanted a comfortable room and bed.I could not believe our room,which was the last one that they had.It was tiny and so dark,it seemed to me that it hadn't been decorated for 20 years or more.
The Company that runs the Best Western chain should be ashamed that this hotel is part of their group.I suggest that someone from their head office pays a visit so that they can see exactly what they are offering their guests.Our 1 night stay cost us over 100 euros to boot,how this hotel can be described as 4 star I will never know.
One thing that I will say in its favour is that the 2 young ladies on reception were charming and I would suggest that they are worthy of working at a far better establishment.

Room Tip: Do not stay here if you can possibly avoid this hotel.

Stopped off here on way home from San Remo
The Receptionist was lovley very helpful.
The room & bathroom OMG in need of a refurb !! but as we were so tired after a long journey it did the job.
We never had a chance to try the Restrant but looked very good.

My husband and I stayed for one night in room 219. The room was decorated in typical French clashing colours and styles reminiscent of the 1970's. The toilet was in a separate closet with no sink for washing up. The toilet was situated in an area on one side of the bedroom and the sink and shower closet on the other side, so when you had to visit the toilet you could only wash your hands by going through the bedroom to the other closet - not at all hygienic! Unfortunately my husband became very unwell about one hour after we ate at The Sphinx restaurant (see review). Can you imagine what it was like for him to have to use the toilet repeatedly with no washing facilities close at hand? We did not stay for breakfast. There was no pool so rating below does not count.

Room Tip: Ask if your room includes a toilet and sink in the same closet.

Stayed three nights again at this hotel in May 2012.The rooms are unchanged since my last review and are basic. Was hot and got an airconditioned room on the first floor. (Surprising how in Europe in many places in summer you get caught out with no airconditioning..it can be suffocating. There is always heating but airconditioning will have to check.).Buffet Breakfast included, basic and sufficient. I like the hotel because of the location. AND because of its restaurant. Super restaurant, very good service.Location is good, we dont have our own cars, and we can walk it through the town. Lovely town for walking.
Recommend this hotel for Restaurant and location.

Room Tip: Rooms vary in size depending on the floor so you can check room out before occupation?. Rooms are qu...

Close to the north south autoroute I have used this hotel in the past as a an overnight stop.
Last time I spent three nights there with a client as our south Burgundy base.
While we were there we looked around the town itself.
To be honest Beaune is going have more appeal to most tourists, but it is in easy reach if you wish to go up and spend a few hours there. Chalon (no s), is less well known which will be a plus point to others, and placed between Dijon and Macon it makes a good base for wine buffs.
The St. Regis is a short walk from the old town which is well worth a visit, and the food both in and out of the hotel is very good. Seeing the sights and having lunch in the centre then dinner back at base is a day I shall gladly try again.
The prices were ok, the food, the staff, the rooms were all better than average. I had no complaints and will be returning.
Someone made a similar point that this place is six hours driving from Nice and six hours driving from Calais.
William.

The hotel is part of a big chain in France. The hotel however is converted from an old building...as usual the old buildings in France have a charm of their own. It is located on the Rue de la Republique, one of or the main street in Chalon sur Soane. as it is converted , the single rooms are small,the lift is small as it has utilised the space within the spiral staircase. The staff are very helpful. They speak English which helps outsiders, naturally! If you are looking for a modern trendy hotel, then this may or may not be for you but if you like the charm of different hotels,then definitely do visit. It is one of the most recommended hotels in Chalon sur Soane.The area is quiet. The street outside is very good (with a Dominos pizza opposite if you need that in the middle of France! ). Coming to the restaurant, we decided to sample the French cuisine (We are Indians so it is an adventure). We had a fish dish (do not remember the full name of the dishes) and a guinea fowl dish with a red wine (Rhone).Lovely absolutely. Definitely you have to try this restaurant. The service is also excellent. Thanks!

Reviewed 28 August 2009

We stayed at this hotel for two nights - our first night on the way to Cannes and then on our return from our holiday as a stop over on the way to Calais.

A really lovely hotel in a perfect location close to the old town of Chalon sur Soane. The room was very clean and spacious, just what we needed after a long drive.

We would definitely stay at this hotel again when travelling to the South of France as it is exactly half way, so a brilliant place to stop for the night.

Maybe the only thing which could be improved is the breakfast - at 15 euro each it was quite expensive for what was on offer and if travelling with young children it is better to go out for breakfast at one of the many cafes available. Also, the restaurants in the old town are very good, so we didn't eat at the hotel itself.

I would definitely recommend this hotel.
