Hotel of charm located in the city center of Besancon, near the Citadel: fortification of VAUBAN, classified with the world inheritance of UNESCO. In the historic center of Besancon, called
Beds very comfortable. Clean room. Car parking on site for an extra charge. Quiet location. Short walk (10-15 mins) to centre.
Very basic. Shower, no bath. Cracked sanitary ware. Only one hanger supplied - a trouser hanger. Very cheap, worn furnishings. Compared with other hotels we have stayed at at this room rate, or similar, we felt this was poor value. Lacked comfort, except for the bed. Presumably it was trading off Besancon as a popular centre.
Very good value for money and about a 20 minute walk to the centre of town. The hotel gave us some useful information about restaurants nearby. We were able to park in front of the hotel.
Location and helpful staff - room fairly basic but clean and serviceable
Noise from room above - no tea/fridge facility in bedroom. Main difficulty was the lack of a lift and bedroom was 3 floors up!
Friendliness of staff, room was perfect for a 2 night stay, great breakfast at a reasonable price, quiet location, close to Citadel steps
We had a great experience at teh Granvelle
Very nice staff. Great location. Good place to store bicycles safely.
the hotel is in the old city centre - very conveniente !!
Old world charm and smell of history
Staff lovely particularly the chambre maid who did the washing and drying and folding of clothes for free. While not up to that staff members spectacularly high standard the whole staff were wonderful and spoke enough English to help us.
Although perhaps in need of more modern decor this was a very comfortable hotel for the price band. It is in a quiet part of the town, close to the citadel, but still within 5 minutes walk of the Grand Rue.
Very good location for exploring the city.
