My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Granvelle in October 2013 and enjoyed the hotel very much. The staff went out of their way to make us welcome and to provide a space for our car though the car park was in fact full. The rooms are being refurbished and modernized and have all the modern conveniences and amenities... More

I have stayed at the Hotel Granvelle several times over the last five years and it would always be my first choice for a simple family run hotel in the city. You get what you pay for, clean rooms and an excellent location. The main breakfast room and foyer could do with re-decorating but I guess they know that. The... More

Perfectly located to explore city without needing the car. Quiet, set back from street by own private courtyard parking area. Wide range of restaurants within strolling distance. Very cheerful, friendly staff, pleasant ensuite room, excellent choice at breakfast in pleasant surroundings. Very good value for money.

We arrived by car, and there was a carpark we were able to use in the Hotel's grounds. The reception staff were very friendly, and helpful - and spoke enough English to get by. The Hotel is perfectly located to stroll around the old town and nearby attractions. Would definitely recommend.

Good position in the centre not too far from anywhere very friendly staff room a little basic parking a bit tight but if you get a space you will be ok as it's tucked away from the traffic. The reception staff couldn't be any more helpfull and for the price you will struggle to beat it

The hotel is recessed about 20 meters from the street; it's quiet (double glazed windows plus retractable metal shudders) and has parking right in front. The lobby space includes plants, a piano, and comfortable sofas. The room was generously sized for a reasonably priced hotel. The breakfast included the usual fare plus good pastries. The hotel is situated near the... More

The Granvelle Hotel in Bescancon France is a little gem of a place. What made it for me was the staff. A genuine friendliness. Cheery even. Having travelled the four corners in Europe I realise genuine good cheer is a rare comodity at hotel receptions. The rooms clean and perfect for the easy going crew. A few of my self... More

A couple of streets off the main High Street, Hotel Granvelle occupies a very convenient , yet peaceful location just below the Citadel, as well as having easy access to the river walkway along the Doubs. The decor of the hotel has a certain old - world charm ( the sitting room is delightful and the breakfast room light and... More

The staff and owners are really friendly, caring and helpful, and although you won't be happy if you want 100% standardised modernity (à l'américaine), the rambling space with its cobbled courtyard added to the pleasure of finding ourselves in this part of the historic centre. Room 25 was right in the middle of the building, with a great view of... More

From the hotel there is a five minute walk to the old city center with its shopping area, but also to the cathedral and, from there up to the Vauban fortification (Citadelle). The rooms are OK, but not fancy, in the old French two star style,
