Very good hotel very well located in Besançon center. Rooms are very beautiful and very clean. Breakfast is good and the hotel is very safety during COVID pandemic. No restaurant in the hotel but several near the hotel, less than 5 minutes.

The hotel is in a lovely old building but the rooms are to a very high standard. The location is excellent for wandering around the city. The staff are helpful and friendly. I think the breakfast is a littler overpriced for the choice avaialble.

This is a fabulous old convent where the nuns apparently specialized in making beer. It is at least 300 years old. The library in the reception area is delightful. Rooms are small by North American standards but I'm sure the nuns would think them enormous. It is within walking distance of the delightful old town. The uphill hike to the Citadel is a bit strenuous but worth it.

Dear H R, What a pleasure for us to read your few lines, thank you very much ! We are truly happy to see you had a pleasant stay among us, and also memorized our hotel history ! :) Indeed, the nuns were definetely not aware of the North American Standards, but just know that we do have different room categories. For a next stay, a Superior Room would probably suit you. We will be glad to have you once again at the Best Western Citadelle. Best regards, Alexandra

An hotel in the old town area of Besancon that the Satnav found more easily than I would with map and address. Very friendly and accommodating reception staff. Useful location in the old town, just below the soaring citadelle, easy walking into the sites of the old town. Room well decorated and furnished. Lots of stairs and corridors to negotiate to our room. Good facilities except for the wifi which really did not work effectively. Only issue with room was grubby outside of shower cubicle and water did not drain away freely. Good breakfast, plenty of choice.
