Great hospitality. The receptionist was very friendly and the rest of the service was great. The room was very clean, cosy and with a great view and the toilet had space and everything we could ask. I highly recomend.

City centre hotel housed in a refurbished historic building in a beautiful location. Rooms on the front overlook the river and at the rear a square. 2 restaurants on site for those who don't wish to venture out.

What a wonderful place to stay. We were positively surprised by the hotel. Friendly reception, taking care of the bikes. The room and the breakfast, everything just fine. Being in the center of town. With GPS we could get to the entrance to unload our things and then park a few hundred meters away in a parking garage for 1€...

Clean and comfortable room which was a true triple with tonnes of space. The Vauban is attached to two restaurants which has good value food, although the breakfast was underwhelming for 10 euros. The room we had over looked the square which is the hotel best asset it's location. Service also deserves a commendation. WiFi strong, TV had two English...

This hotel is right in the centre of Besancon. The difficulty arises if you are travelling by car, particularly after a long journey as I was. My sat nav brought me up various cul de sacs in a vain effort to get me close. Ultimately, my wife went walking while I reversed out of a very tricky situation. The man...

The man at reception was very obliging, granting any requests made of him. Our room faced the river. The room and bathroom were newly refurbished and it was lovely to open out the windows at night to watch the local nightlife. If I was travelling to Besancon again I would stay at this hotel again. A tram number 2 (Hauts...

“Front overlooks the square and tram lines, can be noisy - ask for a room in the back, overlooking the river.”
