Reviewed August 30, 2009

A very basic budget hotel, in need of a fresh change. We booked the 'studio' for just a one night stay for two couple. While adequate in terms of set-up, it was very musty and no good for anyone allergic to dust as was our case. We were changed to two double rooms at no extra charge - a very nice gesture. These rooms were fine, simple, very dated but clean.

I stayed at this hotel for two days at the end of March. I was very happy with the room, it was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel is situated right in the heart of besancon, so it was an easy walk to any of the important sites. I would say the only drawback were the thin walls and the loud pipes, but other than that it is a perfect budget hotel. The staff is very nice, but they don't speak much english.

I have stayed at the Regina twice, and would not hesitate to stay again. This is an old fashioned family hotel, with some character, in the heart of the city. Although the address is on the Grand Rue, the hotel is located through a portal, up a small walkway, well off the main street (It is easy to miss). This makes it very quiet. Only one member of the family speaks English, but they are very friendly and helpful (I speak almost no French, and had no problem).
The rooms are more on the plain side, but the price (double with bath around 50 Euros), and location make up for that. The hotel is listed by Let's Go and Lonely Planet, in different years.
The only drawback is it is often full, and you need to book way in advance. Last tlme I couldn't get a reservation, and stayed at the Hotel Paris, which is fine, but not really worth the extra money, especially if you are on a budget.
Besancon is a beautiful city, and well worth a least a few days.
