“Charming hotel, just outside the city”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

The Hotel Belle Epoque is set just outside the city walls. It's a very easy and quick walk to anywhere in the city. The rooms as actually quite large, especially if you're coming from Paris. We had an older room in the front, and got stuck with 2 twin beds, as that's all they had when we booked. Breakfast was decent and convenient, if not a little spendy.

Overall, I would recommend for a nice spacious room, in a decent location.

Great location, helpful staff, good advice on what to see and especially where to eat and drink. I would highly recommend it and would definitely stay there when in Beaune again. I cannot comment on breakfast except to say there was a Casino market about a 5-7 minute walk away and a bakery next door. Nice fresh croissants and yogurt are all you need after an evening dinner at one of Beaune's fine restaurants.

Room Tip: It is about a 10 euro taxi ride to the train station.

We had a lovely ground floor room off the main courtyard - it was huge and the bed was really comfy, and we had an equally huge bathroom. Little table and chair outside for us to enjoy some sunshine was much appreciated. Breakfast was pricey at the hotel itself but you can pick up breakfast in cafes easy enough for a better price if you're not after a full buffet breakfast so no issue there. You also pay for parking which although a shame is unavoidable in certain towns and cities. Really pretty hotel in a fantastic location in Beaune - easy access to main town.

We stayed here two nights recently on a trip through Bourgogne. Overall, an acceptable property for a casual tourist, but I doubt I'd book there again. It's not cheap, but nothing of quality is inexpensive in Bourgogne during the tourist season.

There are at least two classes of rooms: older ones near the front, on the street and facing into the courtyard, and newer ones in the back, still facing into the courtyard, but away from street noise.

We were in an older room on the ground floor. The bathrooms have been updated recently and ours was modern, clean, functional and very nice. The room itself was tight, with a small armoir and desk, weathered carpeting, but clean. Bedding was OK.

There is a good bit of noise from adjacent rooms and from the service traffic in the courtyard, but nothing that prevented sleeping. Earplugs!

The breakfast is slight: a basket of croissants and baguette, jellies, butter, and your choice of yogurt or cheese; good quality coffees and teas. It's great to have a breakfast in the hotel before the day's activities. Service is prompt.

The service staff was indifferent, and, in my experience, this is characteristic of many well-touristed properties in France. This was not a warm, welcoming sort of staff, but they were attentive to requests, such as helping with dinner reservations.

You're a block or two from the edge of town, an easy walk to the Hotel Dieu and other sites in town. The whole town of Beaune is not very large: we walked through town from the train station to the hotel, our roller bags clattering along the street.

Room Tip: Newer building at the back.

Cher Monsieur
Je souhaite préciser qu'il n'y pas de chambres "anciennes" et de chambres "neuves", il y a plusieurs bâtiments dans l'hôtel, avec des décorations différentes pour chaque bâtiment les chambres dont la rénovation est la plus ancienne date de 6 ans et effectuons tous les ans des rénovations ou ajouts de nouvelles prestations.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for two nights. We had a clean, quiet, dark room in this dark hotel, on the second floor overlooking the courtyard/parking area. The room furnishings were lovely though the quality of the bedding was the poorest we experienced in the 7 similar priced hotels we visited over a two week period in three countries (brown blankets,no bed skirt). The bathroom was a good size. The WIFI was poor even in the lobby and the guest computer was not working. The breakfast which we had only one day was overpriced. Be aware that if you order fruit you will be served a whole kiwi or orange without the requisite tools. (The fresh squeezed juice and the bakery basket was good). While the door bell can be a good feature, (we appreciated being met with an umbrella on a very rainy day) it is also somewhat uncomfortable. The parking is onsite, though there is a charge. We would have appreciated an in room safe and a bar fridge and working WIFI as is provided by similar priced hotels.

Cher Client
Concernant les problèmes Wifi nous avons eu des problèmes de débit durant 3 semaines et comme je l'ai écrit en réponse à d'autres commentaires notre fournisseur à reconnu des problème de débit sur certaine plages horaires, sachez que nous faisons tout pour que nos clients soient satisfait cependant certains problèmes ne sont pas que de notre responsabilité.
En ce qui concerne la literie le commentaire précédent faisait état d'une bonne literie amusant... lorsque l'on sait que ces clients ont dormis dans la même chambre... Pour votre information la literie de cette chambre date de deux ans et malgré tout je suis allé vérifier il n'y pas de soucis elle est ni trop ferme ni trop dure
J'aurais néanmoins souhaité que vous m'informiez de cela lors de votre départ ou mieux durant votre séjour.
Concernant le tarif je ne peux que trop vous conseillez de faire vos réservations avec l'hôtel dans ce cas je pense que le tarif aurait pu être plus attractif
Bien Cordialement

Whilst this Hotel is very well situated in Beaune, well decorated, with very pleasant staff, our room on the attic, was dark and hot. Opening the window merely let in the street noise, so not an option.
Thus we found that it was seriously overpriced for what it was- see our review of the hotel up the street, to which we decamped, because the Belle Epoque was fully booked that night!!
Breakfast was good, albeit in a little back room, because as a party of 8, no tables were big enough to accommodate all of us!!

Cher Monsieur
Vous avez séjourné au 2 étage, dans une chambre dont la photo figure sur tous les site de réservation en ligne, on peut parfaitement comprendre que nous avons plusieurs type de chambres et nous accédons toujours aux demandes spécifiques de nos clients lorsque cela n'est pas possible nous prévenons toujours nos clients à l'avance, donc si vous aviez une demande particulière sur la l'emplacement de votre chambre peut-être aurait fallu nous en informer, sans effectivement lorsque nous sommes complet nous ne pouvons pas toujours faire de changement de chambre dans la mesure où nous nous sommes engagés à respecter les souhaits d'autres clients.
Concernant votre commentaire sur le chauffage, vous avez simplement oublié d'écrire que la température extérieure était de 6° le matin donc effectivement la climatisation n'es pas en fonction compte tenu de ces températures.
Bien Cordialement

The hotel is situated very centrally and ideally placed for exploring the town on foot. The staff were most welcoming and helpful. Although our room was small it was perfectly adequate and comfortable. As we were a party of ten, we were given a private room for our breakfast - a very nice touch. The car park is capacious and security excellent. The manager epitomised Gallic charm and spoke excellent English! What more can one say.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a separate lounge, ideal if you want to entertain friends.
