The audio guide is the key to the success of this fascinating place. It has two levels. The first tells you about each part of the building, and the second, the blue button, gives a deeper insight into life there through the ages. It is beautifully restored, and well worth a visit

It is a nice place to visit, it is good to know more about the history of medicine in the Middle Ages. How they treat patients and how they connect health and religion. It worth the visit. The museum is small, you can visit in one hour.

This is a really beautiful building with an amazing tiled roof. The free audio guide was quite informative, with interesting facts about the history of the building. Definitely worth the small entry fee of €7.50.

This hotel is an incredible look into the history of Beaune, France. From the incredible roof to the interior chapel and hospital. What a tremendous history it entertains. It is an impressive museum of Beaune.

The roofs of tiles are among the most known roofs of France, what a pleasure to finally see them for real. The visit is fascinating and very complete with a free audio guide and visitors also have the possibility to ask for a real tour guide. It is definitely worth it.

What an interesting place. The architecture is beautiful and the furnishings really bring this place to life. Is it easy to see how it operated in the past as a hospital. There is an entrance fee. They have a nice gift shop.

This was time well spent. The history was great and the tour was very informative! The time span that this building was in use was amazing. We did the self guided audio tour.

We visited as part of a tour with a river cruise and what an extremely interesting visit it proved to be. The minute you enter you cannot really appreciate the splendour of the site. It is a wonderful portrait as to what times would have been in the "good old days" and demonstrates the forward thinking of a caring family... More

On entering the courtyard I was literally moved to tears at the extraordinary beauty of the rooves. The tiles alone are worth the visit. The rest of the visit I found a little repedetive after viewing the main dormitory.
