I stayed in this hotel for a 2 night visit to Besançon. I really liked the room, comfortable bed, very conveniently arranged, clean and nicely decorated. Even though my window was to the front of the hotel where there is a fountain I didn't hear it. Breakfast is included with hot items, but mainly the typical European selection of breads,...

Hotel is getting refurbished - scaffolding outside, builders inside - could have been mentioned on website and discount offered but they seem determined to carry on which is the problem - my room looked like the builders had only just finished but hadn't bothered to clean up. Replacement room only slightly better, looked like builders had cleaned up to "their...

This was one of the nicer Ibis hotels I've stayed at, with clean and tidy rooms, friendly staff, and a good location in the main centre of Besancon and near the picturesque citadel. Nothing fancy, but it has all the basic facilities you need and a good buffet breakfast. It is within walking distance of Besancon Viotte station (about 15...

Chose this hotel for its closeness to the Locaboat base on the canal but then the base moved to Deluz! However it was still a good location for restaurants and sightseeing on foot. Long way from supermarkets though. 15 minute downhill walk from Viotte rail station on arrival. Friendly staff. Clean. Long wait for taxi when leaving.

I like this hotel, it's a good budget stay and aside from the stench of cigarette smoke in my room, it was fine for a night. Location is great, very near the tram and historic city center. The hotel can probably provide you with ideas for a guide around Besancon as well, which is a good idea.

Well located hotel in the centre of Besanacon. Room was reasonable sized and the queen sized bed was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was a bit cramped but was functional. No "off" smells in the bathroom. Wifi was good and the television had a good picture. There were only two "English" channels. No coffee making facilities, fridge or safe in...

I first came here after it had been refurbished and was impressed by the position, the parking and the improvements over normal Ibis hotels. The position and the parking in the center of town haven't changed but standards have moved on and now it impresses more by what is missing. No extras in the room, which still looks as if...

Above average Ibis hotel in a good location. Parking was very secure with plenty of space . The staff were extremely helpful and the rooms very adequate. As with all Ibis hotels, there were no frills but the beds were comfortable and the breakfast good.

My boyfriend and I stayed here during our overnight trip to Besancon. The staff are the friendliest staff in France! Very welcoming and warm. The room was pleasant, with the bathroom small but functional. The price was very competitive. We paid 8euros to park the car in the secure carpark which was a good idea. We were able to leave...

From start to finish this Ibis was exceptional. Friendly welcome, spotlessly clean, massive quiet bright bedroom, better than normal Ibis breakfast. Every member of staff without exception was charming and friendly. Oh - and it's got a secure car park as well.
