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

This is a really delightful small hotel. Spotlessly clean, great service, soothing minimalist but not modern decor. A short walk to the hilltop citadel in Besancon, which is a somewhat unusual but appealing attraction especially if you have kids - there is a zoo contained within the old military fortifications. The hotel is a bit hard to find -better to... More

This charming hotel is situated in the deadend of a street where the city ends, with a wonderful view of the Citadelle. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable, with an extremely roomy bath with walk-in shower. The employees could not have been more gracious and helpful. A digestif on the outdoor veranda was the perfect end to a perfect... More

We enjoyed our one night stay in this lovely old monastery. The room was clean and comfortable with a nice bathroom and large shower. Since we were passing through Besancon on our return from the south of France and didn't want to unpack our very filled car, we appreciated the private and secure parking. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and... More

We stayed at Hotel Le Sauvage for 1 night in a classic room, which was elegant, comfortable and with a large bathroom. We also appreciated the thoughtful service that was provided - on arrival restaurant recommendations were given as well as the offer of booking them for us. Free parking in the grounds was provided.
