Beaune, the ancient Burgundian wine capital is the perfect place for holidaymakers traversing France en route for the South or the Alps to break their journey. There are several modern Hotels on Beaune's outskirts but the Belle Époque, a 5 minute walk from the centre and next to Beaune's iconic Hotel de la Poste provides something different. As a previous reviewer has pointed out, it has charm and history. It is comfortable; it has highly friendly personal ownership/management and nothing too much trouble. It also has safe parking. The rooms are spacious and cater for all needs. There is no restaurant but breakfasts are copious and good.

Room Tip: There are family rooms, singles and doubles. Proper sheets and good pillows. The only criticism is t...

This is a lovely hotel located just on the outskirts of historic Beaune. The building is old and charming. Our room was very spacious. The wooden beams and the vaulted ceilings added charm to the room. The hotel provides private parking which was included in our room rate. Breakfast was wonderful. There is no elevator as it is an old building but it was fine for us. There is an excellent bakery just couple doors down so make sure to stop by and buy some pastries for the road. I would definitely come back.

We stayed in a family room which was done up quite beautifully and worked perfectly if we were a family of 4. We were two couples travelling together and couldn't find any other room at the short notice so this did well.

It was a unique experience to stay in a hotel that seemed cut out from a period romance novel. The walkways, the flower beds, the candle like lighting added to the mystique of the hotel.

On more practical concerns, the in-house car parking facility was very secure and helpful
The breakfast is well appointed though you must know what you need to order in advance. The service was attentive when there were staff around. Beaune is a wonderful stop near Paris to explore the wine and the food of the region and Belle Epoque helped us get right down to it!

Hôtel Belle Epoque in Beaune exceeded our expectations! Its location was perfect for walking (just a short block) into the walled old town; and by car a straight shot into a day of vineyard exploration. If one is travelling by car, parking is a bargain right in the courtyard of the complex. Hotel is extremely well maintained with attention to every detail. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean, ours overlooked the courtyard. Check-in was a breeze with friendly and efficient staff. Since we were there on a Saturday morning, we opted out of breakfast our first day and grazed through the Market instead. Our second morning, we enjoyed the hotel’s typical French breakfast. Breakfast is often served on the terrace in the courtyard, but since it was a rainy morning, only the café room was available. Originally, we were trying to book a B&B in Beaune, but all seemed to be full months in advance. Hôtel Belle Epoque did not disappoint, but rather provided a wonderful environment for exploring this historical city and the surrounding wine country.

We took a side trip from Paris to Beaune-less than 3 hours by train.How pleasant this town is particularly the distinct architecture,compact area of commerce and setting within the vast wine growing region.Within the circular walls everything is walking distance-lovely restaurants,bakeries, antique shops and wine shops offering degustations abound. Business offices for major wine producers are sprinkled through out the town. The Belle Epoque is close to all of it and has an atmosphere of being part of the terroir of Burgundy. Large clean rooms, nice sitting areas, friendly staff and a passable breakfast at a very fair rate. Only regret? not having booked a few more days.
Can`t get to Beaune? Go to Ambassade de Bourgogne on rue Odeon-they have it all by the glass or bottle.

I have stayed in the hotel a fair number of times now and think its a fab little find - care has certainly been taken to decorate in a particular style to fit in locally which cannot have been cheap.

Over the past few years an extra block of rooms have been added in a tasteful extension and a quite large car park has sprung up too. It is a 5 minute walk to the town centre and you can definitely spend more, the staff are always the same and the owner is very often on site and willing to help with suggestions or help.

The gates shut at 10.30pm and then you need to use your key to gain entry through the car park sized gates - to be fair everything closes up early in Beaune anyway so it's hardly an issue.

Breakfast is a simple affair however we always look forward to the orange juice and croissants here.

A charming lodge style stay, no huge frills but then none are promised, it's very quiet at night so sleep should be assured in comfortable beds
