Quiet location with secure garden parking but not easy to access via narrow medieval streets. Rooms individual..slightly quirky..egtoi let at one end of the bedroom, bathroom at the other. Not suitable for anyone with mobility issues but quite romantic for anyone wanting to be out of the way and with privacy a priority. No restaurant.

We had to stay in the apartments down the road, but able to use the hotel facilities and restaurant. We were there for Tour De France 2014 rest days and the town was busy and hotel full. The apartment was beautiful and clean, lovely garden setting and secure and safe. Had a small kitchenette and easy walk to centre of... More

What a lovely hotel. The staff were very helpful, you were even shown to the room unusual for this day and age. The room's décor was lovely. Excellent shower facilities and gorgeously scented toiletries. We had a lovely view of the garden and scenery beyond (we were on second floor). Advise book a parking space as no parking nearby.

Okay, you're going to stay in Besancon. Maybe you're doing business in the many identically constructed government buildings in the old town. Maybe you came for the outstanding Vauban constructed citadel, maybe you came for the beautiful villages within driving distance (Baume les Messieurs, Lods). Regardless, you'll be glad you stayed here. A charming converted residence located 15 min (hard)... More

We only spent one night there. The location is great, it´s a very old building which was nicely renovated. Rooms pure, clean, not too much furniture, stylish bathrooms, rain shower. Nice breakfast. Private parking.

We stayed overnight on our way to our holiday in Switzerland. The hotel is lovely, very clean and stylish and close to the town centre and square. We cannot comment on the food as we ate dinner out and didn't book breakfast. The reception staff were helpful, for example in providing a fan as it was so hot when we... More

Excellent breakfast, friendly staff, beautiful surroundings and some lovely antique shabby chic furniture. The cathedral with the most famous astronomical clock 300 metres away. This is one of the most charming hotel in this area that I have seen so far...
