Functional hotel within easy walking distance along the River Doubs to the city of Besancon. There is a good resaurant on site but there are also plenty of places to eat in the town itself. It is a quieter location than staying within the town.

I often prefer Ibis during my trips as you always know what to expect. The hotel is centrally located, just 10' on from the central square while Citadelle is about 20-30' on foot. There is a garage underneath the hotel which costs 8€ so no worries about the car. The rooms are of a good size, very clean, soundproof and...

Not a bad Ibis at all - right in the middle of town with a secure car park. The rooms were off a good size and comfortable. The hotel had a restaurant which we ate in as the city itself, which was stunning, seemed to lack eateries. Breakfast was standard and not as much choice as some ibis hotels I...

The hotel was located in a good position, walking distance to explore the city centre. Like most Ibis hotels, you pretty much know what you can expect from room size, quality and facilities. This was no different and was certainly not the worst budget style motel we stayed at on our travels in the region. If the room is clean...

Our stay at the La City Ibis was spoilt by the poor service we felt we received from the reception staff. Firstly the inadequate directions for the access to and exit from the car park and secondly when dealing with the fact that we had been allocated a room that had not been cleaned and prepared for use by the...

A budget hotel is what it is, a cheap stay overnight. This hotel was cheap, but still Clean room, good Englishspeaking personell, free wifi in the room.

Clean and centrally located, this quite new hotel offers a parking lot. You are in walking distance to the city center and also quite near to enter the next highway. The bathroom was quite "plastic style", but clean and well maintained. Unfortunately the rooms window was not to be opened.

Good hotel just for one night. The rooms are pretty small, but they are clean and fresh. The beds were nice. The staff talked English. Good parking if you have a car. I can highly recommend the restaurant. Very nice seafood to very good prices.
