Myself, partner and baby stayed here for one night while driving back to the UK from Switzerland. It was a somewhat quirky if thoroughly enjoyable experience! One of the major plus points was the excellent welcome and assistance from the desk staff, and the overall helpfulness of all the staff - we were travelling with a pile of baby-related equipment, but they made all this as easy as possible. The hotel is in the heart of the beautiful old town of Besancon, which we absolutely loved. But it is tricky to navigate to by car, and the car then has to be driven a few blocks away to the hotel's secured parking (with a member of the hotel staff in the car directing you!). The room was not massive and was a bit spartan, it was also all a bit faded and tattered. But it was very clean, and quite in line with the hotel's two star rating. Bathroom is a bit of a journey back to the 1950s, but for us this added to the interest of the hotel. (It is perhaps true that the hotel's website conveys an impression of modernity that is slightly misleading ....) Breakfast was absolutely predictable - juice, croissant, bread and jam, with tea/coffee - but fine. Even with the cost of secured parking, breakfast and the cot, our stay came in at 87 euro which was a total bargain. Taking into account the beauty of Besancon on your doorstep, this was a brilliant overall experience.
