Breakfast comes with tea, coffee or hot chocolate. I had tea, and an extra chocolate for which I was happy to pay, expecting 5 euros or so. But 15? She said that was what it costs in restaurants, but I live in London and regularly visit Paris, and as anyone who has stepped outside their house in 30 years knows,... More

This was our first trip to France and after looking through multiple reviews, I chose Hotel Rousseau because of all the great reviews. The choice ended up being a great one as the 2 days we spent in Beaune were amazing. We were greeted by Madame Rousseau, and shown true French hospitality. The room was spacious with a 1/2 bath...

My friends and I stayed in a room set up for four people. Our room was spacious and we had our own bathroom located just outside our room. The room was charming and the beds were so comfortable - without a doubt the best night's sleep of our trip! The hotel is located just a short walk from town. Our... More

This place is a gorgeous, old Frech country house that was a refreshing change from the fast pace of Paris. The hotel has a lovely, quiet courtyard with tables where my wife and I had a great picnic to ourselves one night. Madame Rosseau was extremely accomodating however completely unobtrusive. Although her English was minimal, we did not find it... More

Rick Steves directed us here, and we were delighted with everything about it. Madame Rousseau was very kind, and I regretted that my French was not much better than her English, because I would have loved to have visited with her and asked her about her beautiful home. The room was very nice, and we slept soundly for nine hours... More

We found this in the LP guide and stayed with our family of 4. We had a double and two singles for at least 15 euros less than any other place we found with only a double and one single. AND it included breakfast: lots of coffee for us, hot cocoa for the kids, and bread and croissants with jam.... More

A really beautiful old hotel right in Beaune. Easy walking distance to the train station and to the middle of the old town. The rooms are decorated with antiques... unfortunately the matresses are antiques too. I slept fine anyway, but some people might have a hard time. The garden in the back is wonderful to sit in and drink wine... More

Madamme Rousseau, the proprietor, is a relic and her place (which seems to be converted from an old carriage house) is a bit like walking into a museum (our room had beautiful antiques). The beds were very uncomfortable, and her birds woke us up early in the morning, but her place is an amazing value, and she is very kind... More
