This hotel was recommended by a resident in Besancon. It was absolutely charming and worth the climb. We booked the most basic room we could and were shocked to find ourselves in a huge room (number 3) with a pull out sofa, desk, table, sitting chairs, lovely view overlooking the garden and a fabulous bathroom. It was very quiet which we appreciated! The hotel is tricky to find if you are traveling by car, GPS was essential. While there is a bit of a climb to reach the hotel it was not that steep. The staff were wonderful, very responsive to all of our pre arrival emails and details! That being said, there are very limited services for guests. The reception area is only open from 7 am to 10 pm which is fine so long as you know you can not check in or out outside of these hours or get any other assistance. We did not take the breakfast offered in the morning, although it looked wonderful. Outside of breakfast there isn't any food or beverage options except for a bar that is staffed for short periods of time over the breakfast hour and evening. So if you are returning to the hotel late in the evening and want something to drink be advised to stop in a convince store in town to get drinks or snacks. If were were ever to return to this area we would stay here again in a heart beat!!
