1. The hotel is a small and good one. Clean, mid-size rooms, central location. Hotel's staff is very good. 2. There is an unusual issue with its location. The hotel is situated right on river's embankment, which is one-direction street. And this street is occupied(!) by cafes. Meaning, tables are on the pavement but chairs are on the road, yes....

Our first visit to Besancon a lively university town, the hotel is well placed for the centre of town and parking is a short walk away, overnight at 3 euros, the hotel is smart and welcoming but lacks an element of service, the entrance is secure and you could wait 3/4 minutes to be let in, the local bars come...

Everything was fantastic, including available parking lot a short walk away down the river. Excellent room, immaculate bathroom, and breakfast was delicious. The host even served breakfast very early just to accommodate our early departure. Genuine hospitality, and much appreciated.

We were very pleased with the warm reception, the comfortable room with a good view, and an excellent location. Be aware that Besancon is changing traffic patterns and you should ask Reception for the best route to the hotel.

Great little hotel, very central and recently modernized. Converted riverfront building right in the middle of Besancon. Rooms are recently upgraded to a very high standard and air conditioned, which is a plus in the summer. Staff are friendly, great value as well. Highly recommended. If you are driving, I wouldn't recommend trying to reach the hotel as the town... More

The room was neat, small and tidy. The bathroom well equiped. The beds were very very hard. There was a festival on the square in front of the hotel which made it a pleasant and joyful stay. The breakfast was okay, but the breakfast room was very crowded. The people of the hotel are friendly and nice. Besides the beds... More

His decor is most tasteful and the practical details of the property are excellent.It even manages to be informative,with the map and pictures of... More

This is a recently modernised small hotel on an ancient quai in the heart if the city. It us noisy in the mirning from 6am when traders come to work, but thars a minor downside to any central property. Downstairs are two restaurants belonging to the property, one French, the other Italian. Both good for everyday food. The hotel is... More

I stayed in this hotel recently and was not impressed, Firstly the room was freezing when we arrived so we couldn't even take our coats off and relax after a long drive. Secondly the room was tiny and there wasn't a coat hook in sight even in the bathroom. Thirdly the shower leaked so badly that the bathroom was flooded... More
