Reviewed February 28, 2012

The Hotel was very quiet and conveniently located to the old town. The bed was especially comfortable - probably the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The rooms are well decorated, clean, big tv, free wifi. There is a lift which was convenient and the lady at the reception desk was friendly and helpful. On the down side, the rooms are very tiny, the shower takes a long time to heat up and it is very expensive. If the price doesnt bother you, its a good place to stay.

An oasis in a sea of mediocre hotels. Beautful rooms, beautiful hotel, plus parking onsite? Very rare for a centrally located hotel. 9/10

Spent one night here during a family road trip. The hotel is centrally located and has excellent secure parking for a small fee. The reception staff were very efficient, friendly and spoke English well. The hotel looks very new and is very stylish and well decorated. Fixtures and fittings are attractive and the rooms are well appointed with nice modern bathrooms. We had trouble getting the internet to connect to our IPAD although it connected if we sat in the lobby ( which is quite comfy). The breakfast was a bit pricey so we walked into town and ate at a cafe for half the price. There is an italian bistro/bar next door if you don't want to walk the two blocks into town for dinner-it was bucketing rain so we ate there and it was OK, but I am sure you can do better if you venture out.

We were very pleased with our one-night stay. Regardless of one's decorative taste, you cannot help but admire the quality of this property's renovation. We particularly appreciated the secured parking. The hotel is perfectly placed to discover the historic center of the beautiful town of Besançon. We were fortunate to have been upgraded to an executive room, which was comfortable and had a nice view. The bathrrom was a bit tight, but modern and clean and had the best wall mounted hairdryer I've encountered. The front desk was efficient and the breakfast was well above average and served in a delightful room. Overall a pleasant and unique experience.

Room Tip: Avoid ground floor rooms unless on tight budget.

The hotel is located right in the middle of the historical city center (in the so-called "La Boucle" area).
It is an old building totally renovated and recently opened as an hotel.

Our standard room was very cosy, offering a stylish decoration and a very comfortable bed. It was viewing a nice courtyard.
They also offer an inside parking for an acceptable 7€ / day.

I did not take any photo, but those posted on their website are offering a fair view of the place.

I will definitely go back to this hotel while in Besançon.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In the 18th century this hotel used to be a coaching inn and it represents a History lesson in itself. It was called the “Hôtel de France” and became the “Hôtel de Paris” in 1855. It was the favourite address for a large number of learned persons from the higher realms of culture and politics. Even the stones have retained the memory of Prosper Mérimée who stayed here in 1836, of Jules Michelet the famous historian, and even of George Sand and Colette the unforgettable women writers. From this prestigious place the visitor can find the most remarkable monuments and museums.It is also the starting point for nice walks in the historical town centre, hemmed in by the loop of the river Doubs.The setting gives the feeling of a lively inhabited residence where spring generates a delicious woody smell, rising up from the two inner yards, with their totally safe car parks situated at the back of the buildings. On the shaded terrace the visitor enjoys a luxurious moment of calm and can have a quiet breakfast or relax after a busy day. The view on the roof tops and on the forts which surround the town is fascinating. The sun glows into the quiet yards where the fifty rooms have been totally restored to offer a special moment beyond time. With its contemporary and ancient styles which coexist in harmony, the hotel breathes a real atmosphere of serenity. One will appreciate the particular attention paid to the comfort of the bedrooms. The cosy lounges offer original spaces to rest and meditate and the fitness room is the good idea to keep up one’s form. Two well equipped rooms allow people to organize events and conferences in very good conditions.Thanks to the young and dynamic new owners with their good elegant taste, this “hotel de charme” has become a spirited place with its three star service. It is now a jewel in the heart of Besançon. ... more   less
