I stayed in this hotel with my mother for one night! We experienced the stuff as very nice and the hotel itself was very clean and pretty. There was also a private parking to the hotel, so we did not have to worry about our car! The location of the hotel was also nice.

Yet, our room did not have any air conditioning, while the outside temperature was 29 degrees at night. Therefore, neither of us was able to sleep very well (2 hours max)!

Otherwise, the hotel and the breakfast were good. But since a hotel is made for sleeping purposes, make it possible for your guests to rest please!

This hotel was a former monastery, perched on a very quiet, little street not far from the centre of the town. We only stayed one night due to our busy schedule, and had a lovely suite with a small sitting room and tiny terrace included. The staff were charming, breakfast was delicious and the location (with a private car park) made everything so easy. The town itself boasts some amazing remnants of grand Roman architecture, mixed in with the light coloured stonework of the 18th and 19th century buildings (some much earlier) and the famous Citadel.The cathedral by the Roman arch is magnificent.....look out for the exquisite Madonna and Child sculpture and the astronomical clock.

Room tip: There isn’t a restaurant for lunch or dinner so ask the hotel in advance for a good place to eat.

A comfortable, no fuss though, hotel located in an old convent. Hence very quiet. A graceful service. Guests feel welcome and soon at home. Location is perfect: on the hill, but only a five minute walk from the great old city center, theatres, restaurants, shops and animation: something to watch almost every evening. Besançon is a rather intellectual, creative city. Beautiful surroundings, churches, noble homes, an incredible Roman gate in an astonishing state of conservation, all that within a 5' walk radius. Parking easy in the garden. Great for a weekend break too, e. g. for the Swiss: only a two hour drive from West Switzerland, smiling and talkative people, and everything at half-CH-price. They should not hesitate whenever they dream of a short, happy trip somewhere without extensive preparation and without having to fly out (and getting tired in the process)

At the Sauvage hotel everything is perfect. We got a warm welcome with a lot of useful details for our city trip. The room was absolutely clean. A very "sustainable" parking area! The breakfast room is nice and the served breakfast buffet was excellent!
