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

Sauvage is good. We stayed just one night in a "chambre luxueuse" for 193eur incl breakfast. Smaller/less expensive is probably also good, but these where booked out. The room was big and ample, very nice with a small terrace outside. Its situated in a quiet corner of the older part of Besancon, a 10 min hike down the narrow road... 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

We picked this hotel based on Trip Advisor recommendations and it was totally successful. The hotel is sophisticated, close to the Citadel and a short but steep climb back from the town centre. We stayed in the suite number 5 which has a nice living room with balcony overlooking the garden and the view west. It is a private hotel... More

We were on the way to South of France and decided to stop over in beesencon. The hotel is located just below the citadel in the old part of the city. It's chic, stylish and the service couldn't have been more impressive. Particularly recommend wine on the terrace in the late afternoon, and the breakfast is incredible. On the recommendation...

This is a great building, fantastic quiet and comfortable place to stay. Quite expensive, but for the usual quality you get from French chain hotels e.g. Kyriad, Campanile etc, this is very nice. Clean, comfortable beds, large grand rooms with garden views and you could hear a pin drop in this hotel. We enjoyed our stay. Ever so slightly shaky... More
