Reviewed December 28, 2012

we couldn't fault this hotel. Beautiful character filled hotel, clean rooms and friendly service for a fantastic price (43 euros for an ensuite room!). It was even within walking distance of the station and town centre. We would reccomend it to anyone looking for a budget hotel in dijon.

This hotel is very old and the rooms convey this.
The room we had was small and the bathroom very old with a worn shower curtain. Thankfully the bed was comfortable but the walls a paper thin and you can hear everything being said in the next room. The hallway is very narrow and there is no elevator. We did not have the optional breakfast so cannot comment. Parking is available under the building but it is limited, the street outside has a lot of resident vehicles parked so I doubt if you could find a spot if the hotel is full.
The staff were friendly with little english spoken, but this was not a problem.
I think the price of the hotel is accurate considering the building's age, and if you need a cheap room for a night Hotel Victor Hugo will do.

Room Tip: No elevator is available, so choose a room lower down if you have heavy bags.

It's a nice hotel with friendly staff. Although most of the staff can't speak English but they are all very friendly. The hotel located a bit off the central location, and it's actually quite dark to walk around at night. The bathroom arrangement is quite weird. Our room has the toilet at one side of the room and the wash ban with shower room in another side of room. Overall, still an okay budget hotel.

We stayed at Hotel Victor Hugo for four nights spread over 9 days when we visited our daughter who was on exchange. Our visit consisted of 2 nights then 2 nights away, 1 night then 2 nights away and then another night. Hotel staff were extremely accommodating and allowed us to leave the bulk of our luggage whilst we went on our little trips. Rooms were clean and bathrooms new. Walking distance to train station and main town. Quiet location. Breakfast adequate. Staff's understanding of English was much better than our understanding of French!!

A nice older hotel, with attentive reception staff and very nice rooms. On a back street near the centre and within easy walking distance. Wi-fi good and all facilities well-maintained. Public rooms fairlty understated but I don't spend much time there anyway.

Parking tip: when you turn into the street (Rue des Fleurs) ahead about 200m you will see a maroon awning on the left; that is the hotel entrance (hotel has yello walls). About 50m before that, on the left, is a large green gateway with a brick ramp down under the hotel to park. Leave your keys with the hotel receptionist in case he needs to move the cars around. Easy really and free.

Bottom line, recommended and I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Try to get to the basck, although it all seemed quite around there to me.

Signposted from the main street, Hotel Victor Hugo is within walking distance from the station Dijon Ville, yet escapes traffic noise. The room was well set up, with large shuttered windows that looked onto a small back garden. Facilities were ensuite, spotlessly clean and serviced daily. We were on the first floor so did not look for a lift, so I am not sure if there was one.
We had breakfast on the second day and this was orange juice, coffee or tea, and bread and croissants with an assortment of spreads. Simple but adequate.

I really enjoyed staying here. For one night (August 2012) I paid 39euros, and an additional 6euros for breakfast.

My room was spotlessly clean, the decoration in the hotel's public areas is quirky, but very good.

Comfortable bed (no squishy mattress experience).

It's not a hotel to lounge around in, but for an inexpensive place to stay, and being close to the centre of Dijon, it gets a big thumbs-up.
