A short stroll from both the citadelle and the town. Rooms are simple but elegant and the whole environment is perfect for relaxing after a busy few days. No dinner but good recommendations offered by friendly staff.

A fabulous little hotel hidden away near the top of the old town with great access to all parts. Friendly staff who were happy to be of service, with delightful rooms, a marvellous terrace on which to enjoy an early evening aperitif.

This old convent has been superbly converted into a hotel. The décor and furnishing are done with great taste (but also some restraint - nothing is over the top). Staff were very helpful, breakfast on the terrace was delightful (and delicious - the quality of the Conte and Morbier cheese was exceptional) and the bathrooms are wonderful. Highly recommended.

An old monastery converted to a boutique hotel, this place offers a special atmosphere and old-school style in beautiful surroundings of the Besancon old town. Our junior suite was beautifully appointed and included a nice little balcony to relax on. While there is no restaurant in the hotel, breakfast is offered (and recommended) as is limited room service. Service was... More

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for one night during our short visit to Besancon. The hotel is located in the heart of the old town, 10 to 15 minutes walk from the Citadelle and 5 minutes from the Main Street, Grande Rue. It is ideally located on the hill, offering tranquility and peace. The building used to... More

In a charming richly historical town, this lovely hotel is located high on a hill, just below the town's famous Citadel (which, in itself, is an exciting place to take kids!). The hotel is quiet, classy, with very clean and comfortable rooms (our family had 3), with rich wood floors and beautiful lighting. It all has a way of transporting... More

Good quality medium size boutique hotel situated in the old quarter of the historic c town of Besançon. The building is an old monastery and is tastefully decorated. To find the hotel by car you will need to drive down a number of small side streets and although well signposted a SarNav will help. The restaurant serves a buffet breakfast... More

We stayed at le Sauvage on a visit to this beautiful place that has such a harsh history from WW2. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful, making recommendations and reservations for us to dine and to explore. The location of the hotel is perfect for a visit to the Citadel. Our room was very comfortable and... More

Lovely location, beautifully decorated rooms and all of that for a great price. We have been here twice already and we will come back more often. The place to stay in town. Just five minutes from the city center. Very nice breakfast too. Free parking.

An old convent converted into a hotel in the old town of Besancon. Service is friendly, rooms are beautiful and the location is great. They have parking in the gardens of the hotel (7 euros / night). Nothing to do with the hotel, but when wondering around the old town, I bumped into two bag stores, that sold designer bags... More
