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...

A truly lovely hotel on the hill between the citadel and old town and within easy walking distance to both. The views from the terrace are relaxing and one can have breakfast, sundowners or snack there on a warm day. The rooms are large and comfortable and lack only coffee making equipment. Ours had access onto a private garden while... More

Comfortable, good service, elegant decor and beautiful view. This hotel is on a hilltop, steps away from the Citadelle, one of the most alluring sights in Besancon, and just up the hill from the Cathedral. We were able to park safely in the "Jardin" behind the building and walk in to town for dinner, and to the Citadelle and museum... More

The Hotel Le Sauvage is located in the old part of Besançon, yet a bit on the outskirts. To get there you will either have to walk a small steep ascent or drive through some narrow streets and corners. The establishment itself is well hidden and discloses its charm only to those willing to go inside. The decor of hallways,... More

Small boutique hotel in the very heart of the old city of Besançon- prime location and exquisite buildings (former convent). The common areas are simply beautiful redone with great Taste and filled with antiques, old frames, soothing dark colors and great attention to details. Professional and welcoming staff. Simple but fresh, substantial breakfast in a lovely and quiet sitting-room, with... More
