I stayed at Hotel de la Balance for four nights while attending a conference. It is an authentic old world hotel, so don't stay here if you prefer North American style chain hotel facilities. The rooms and beds are small and are not luxurious, but they are clean and efficient. Reception is not 24 hours, but the desk staff are very courteous. Breakfast is served in a "ballroom" on the main floor. It's a continental breakfast buffet, but also with yoghurt, ham, cheese and hard boiled eggs and really excellent coffee. The hotel has parking, but it is easily within walking distance of the Montbeliard TER train station. The station and the shopping district are just on the other side of the chateau. There is also a shuttle from the station to the more distant TGV station. The only possible complaint is that the rooms can be cold, but this is simply because each room has its own heater that you need to turn on yourself. The hallways are lit with motion sensor lights, which again might seem strange for North Americans who are used to "always on" hotels. Energy is extremely expensive in France. I had a wonderful stay and would recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in an authentic French hotel.
