we stayed here during the winter months and were enchanted with the place. the decor is wonderfully magical. upon entering you are enveloped in a welcoming friendly atmosphere which is dripping with style and an area gone by. the staff is ultra friendly, we were even shown 3 different rooms for choosing our favorite one, which was the hardest thing...

We went to Besançon at short notice and were happy to get a room at Le Sauvage. In our opinion it is one of the most beautiful hotels we stayed in. The renovation done with taste and love. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a nice outside space. Had it not been December we would have loved to sit... More

This is a beautiful hotel. It was a former convent. The hotel setting is high elevation looking down over the city. The rooms are decorated in French style lovely linens and a great view.What more can you ask for. We stayed two nights and would return again in a minute. We toured the Citadelle and walked the city. There is... More

Wonderful positioning in the old part of the town. The hotel is styled in a classy French traditional style with a quality finish. We were upgraded to a suite at the top of the building front facing with views over the town. The room was a split level with plenty of space and separate bathroom (shower in bath) and was... More

Quite a gem for this small city - well-situated (but take your GPS with you) just next to the Citadelle and walking distance to the main city areas (though the walk back is a bit of a climb). Wonderful staff that was thoughtful, welcoming and efficient! The rooms were large - though not overdone with furniture. The breakfast was sufficiently... More

My husband and I recently stayed for one night in this excellent 3 star hotel, which is situated in the old part of town. The former convent has been renovated with taste and style. The young lady who welcomed us was charming and most helpful. She reserved a table for us at the brasserie nearby which was extremely good value... More

I don't think I've been to a property which has been more well done. This former monestary has beautiful rooms, a lovely bar area and breakfast area, terrace etc. Help is great...especially a young womn named Christine or Kirsten? We stayed in two different rooms-one on the second floor facing the fortifications- at night, beautifully lit and the second in... More

At the top of a steep hill, and not the easiest to navigate to, but this hotel is still worth searching out. The welcome was the warmest we received on the whole trip, and the facilities are of the highest quality. Room was large, airy and comfortable with a luxurious shower room/toilet. Hotel is placed 5 minutes walk from the... More

This hotel was recommended by a resident in Besancon. It was absolutely charming and worth the climb. We booked the most basic room we could and were shocked to find ourselves in a huge room (number 3) with a pull out sofa, desk, table, sitting chairs, lovely view overlooking the garden and a fabulous bathroom. It was very quiet which... More

Very pleasantly surprised to arrive in Besancon by train & escorted to this lovely hotel by the very knowledgeable cabbie that the hotel provided. Loved our accommodations there as we had two rooms on the ground floor in the garden area for my two Grandaughters & my daughter & myself. The rooms were equipped with everything we needed, loved the... More
