“Very nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014

I spent only 1 night in this hotel and only 2 days in Dijon which is a shame. Hopefully next time...
Hotel is situated in the centre of town, in a very quiet tiny street. My room was No 5 with a view on a quite typical street.
The room is OK with everything I needed. Outside, in the small lobby there is a tray with tea, coffee etc. Bathroom is OK and very clean. Breakfast is served downstairs and it is a typical. I can advise this hotel and I will stay there next time for sure.
A big plus: internet is really fast and solid.

Ok so the staff were very helpful and the location great for walking into town but beyond that this is an old building that needs a lot more doing to it. Typical of the problems is that the stair carpet is worn and dirty and the room decor "cheap".

Better value to be had elsewhere I expect.

We thank you for your visit and your review. We are sorry if our stairs spoilt your stay but, because of refurbishment of a room on the first floor, it was difficult for us to maintain the stairs clean all day long. All our apologies for that inconvenience

Although the bedroom was a little small, the room was tastefully renovated. Bathroom was nice. Hotel was extremely convenient to all sights in Dijon. Staff was very, very cordial and helpful. Would stay here again. Staff recommended wonderful restaurants within walking distance.

Room Tip: All rooms I viewed were tastefully done.

We stayed at the Hotel Du Palais for 3 nights in September 2013. After getting over the strain of carrying our suitcases up 3 flights of narrow stairs (though the staff offered to help with this), we quickly settled in to our cosy attic room. The room had modem fittings and good wifi, and was very clean and tidy. The breakfast was ample and fresh, and the tea/coffee facilities on each floor a real bonus. But the two stand out features for this hotel are its fantastic location so close to the historic center of Dijon and the exceptional friendly service. We always felt welcome and any request was seen to quickly and always with a smile. A real gem in the heart of historic Dijon.

Reviews on Trip Advisor are mixed about this hotel. It seems most criticism is about its small rooms and the stairs one climbs to get to them. However, you get what you pay for. Of all the hotels I stayed at on a road trip through France, this was the cheapest. Yes, the room was tiny. The bathroom didn't have a real door, but one of those thin sliding doors that doesn't really lock. Yes, there were three floors of steps to climb up. Still, it was a modern, neat room with a very comfortable bed. My window had a charming view of rooftops. And it was possible to close the window to shut out the noise and sunlight. My only complaint is about the breakfast; it was very basic and limited. Conclusion? If you're on a budget, don't mind a small room and a hike to the top, stay here. If not, you are forewarned: go elsewhere and pay some more!

Room Tip: All the rooms are small and some look like dorm rooms.

We are very happy that you have enjoyed your stay. However, we think that we can not call a BASIC breakfast in France, a breakfast with homemade ginger bread, homemade jams, bacon, ham, cheese, yogurts...We would like to add also to your comment that, with some more money in our hotel, you can have a more spacious room in lower floors.
We hope to receive you again next time

We had a comfortable and enjoyable stay here. Our group of three couples managed a pleasant 25 min walk from train station when we couldn't find a taxi. We were warmly greeted and each of our three rooms on the first floor were clean, comfortable and spacious. The rooms are functional rather than 'period' but we were all very pleased with them. Delightful breakfast room and nice offering. The hotel is in an ideal location, just a few minutes to the heart of the old town. Very reasonably priced.
