The location is very close to the center of town where you can get everything at only a short walking distance. A peaceful place to sleep as it is not located in a busy area. Large parking space, expect that the entrance is very narrow; cannot fit large car into the parking space that is located behind the hotel. The... More

Location in the center of the old town. Reception staff recommended an excellent and well-priced restaurant for lunch--excellent wine and coffee and a good meal about 500 meters away. The Citadel designed by Vauban, is exceptional and merits its UNESCO World Heritage status. I was skeptical about the zoo, which is located in the moat of the Citadel, but it... More

We spent a night here en route. The location is convenient for the Mouillère station, the river and the city centre - restaurants and shops within easy reach. Reception was cheerful but perfunctory. The accommodation was rather small for an Ibis, but adequate, and as always with Ibis, the bed was comfortable and the room clean.

I have stayed at this Ibis two years in a row, most recently in June 2014. I can safely say that this is one of the best hotels in Besançon, a city I visit at least once a year. Over the years, I've tried various hotel there--chains and family owned), all perfectly nice, but the Ibis Centre ville is by... More

This is up to the usual Ibis standards. There is no restaurant as such, but breakfast is served by the reception. An adequate breakfast and good value for what you pay. This hotel is city centre, so there are lots of restaurants and bars around. Parking is tricky - there is a car park at the back of the hotel,... More

I'll qualify my overall "Excellent" rating by saying this hotel is "Excellent" for an Ibis. Indeed, this is the best Ibis we have ever stayed in. Pluses: - Modern bathroom with fully-enclosed shower and a real electrical outlet. - Large room (especially for an Ibis) and comfortable. - A truly excellent value with the Accor.com Early Booking (30%) discount. -...

Hotel is modern and clean. The bathroom was quite small, but about par for the course for Ibis. Front desk staff very accommodating. I fell one night and banged up a hand and a hip, and the nice young woman gave me a champagne cooler full of ice (I travel with my own zip-lock plastic bags). And she asked after... More

I would stay in this hotel and other Ibis' when touring, but I would bring my own shampoo, other toiletries, wash cloth, and towel. Otherwise it's everything you want: quiet, reasonably comfortable bed, handheld shower, air con, reading lights, parking right behind, walking distance to mail square with bus to Citadel.

Excellent location for shopping, sightseeing, and entertainment. Even though the city is undergoing the installation of a new tramway, we were able to make the most of our 4 night stay. Hotel facilities as good or better than other Ibis that we have stayed in over the last 25 years. Room dimensions good, bathroom ventilation & aircon good, but a... More
