7.9 Good
Pros: Great location
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Lovely surprise in the centre of historical Besancon. Parking was easy through pedestrian malls due to friendly staff at reception and great directions. Due to limited spaces it is essential to book parking in advance. The room was lovely and decor was historical and whimsical at the same time. Excellent quality continued with breakfast was also part of a great experience. There are plenty of quality restaurants nearby for dinner. Beautiful city to explore, great accommodation and we will come back.
7.9 Good
Pros: Really helpful arrival instructions provided by the hotel Good location Quality towels
Cons: There was a horrible smell of Indian spices on the first and second floor, the lift and in our bedroom. The smell was present for the whole of our stay and was really unpleasant
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The hotel location is central and the on site car park was really good. The breakfast was adequate, but not fantastic. We paid to upgrade from the standard room, the new room was really large. The secure parking was good.
Cons: Unable to find any fault with this hotel, It was a long winding walk to the room.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The central and quiet position is perfect. Parking instructions and car park fine (8euros a day). Welcoming and friendly reception and staff. Comfy beds and pillows. Attractive rooms and bathrooms. Clean throughout. Nice breakfast, usual continental with fresh fruit, cereals, cheese, bread, etc. plus scrambled eggs, bacon and boil your own egg. Good coffee and tea. All for 13euros. We spent hours at the Citadelle and walking all over beautiful Besançon. Had good meals at the Brasserie de Commerce, la Plancha and the Poker d'As. Enjoyed a drink at the lively Café Bohème.
Cons: We were 4 couples with standard and deluxe rooms. We all regretted that there were no shelves (apart from the one with the extra pillows above the small wardrobe, quite high up) or a chest of drawers. There are half a dozen coat hangers, that's all, so difficult to unpack. Despite notices about not changing towels if not put in the bath/shower, used towels were changed everyday and pillow slips too, quite unnecessary. These are our only criticisms and the Hotel de Paris is a great place to stay!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Central location, friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast.
Cons: Lack of place to unpack into. No cupboard and very small hanging space for 2.
10.0 Excellent

Following the satnav, led me along a bus lane!! :-) and my wife had to sit there, in the car, in the middle of a busy street full of cafes and restaurants and shoppers... whilst a ran in the hotel to ask where the parking was... Anyway, were were soon in the enclosed secure carpark... Hotel is like a Tardis... very classy with fancy furniture in reception. Very easy access to the bars and restaurants... very nice town. Room was comfy, clean and well furnished.. I would use this again...

Pros: Hotel is in an excellent location, right in the centre of the old city. The breakfast was very good - though modest, it included freshly-squeezed orange juice and very fresh bread and croissants. The staff were most helpful.
Cons: We ended up moving to another hotel as the weather was so hot and the hotel was not air-conditioned. This was my fault for not checking when I booked. There were fans in the room but they didn't really reduce the temperature and the noise made it difficult to sleep. If you have a room on the front, the street starts to be noisy quite early in the morning. The general decor of the hotel is rather run-down and old-fashioned.

7.1 Good
Pros: First night of a touring holiday by car.. easy to find, close to motorway, ample free parking onsite. Great to find it had a swimming pool after travelling 500 miles in a hot car!! Great outside seating area, the location is not pretty but was secluded by large trees and a nice terrace with umbrellas. Clean and comfortable room/bathroom, with a good buffet breakfast choice. Nice that there was a bar/restaurant on site as there did not seem much else to use nearby. Friendly polite reception staff.
Cons: The bar/restaurant was not easy to get served at... although there were staff available and it was not at all busy, they seemed unwilling and not friendly,being watched over by a grumpy manager they appeared to be scared of?!. Very expensive beer.. bad measures, not filling the glass. Also after a swim and a beer, getting changed came back down for dinner but was told by rude staff we did not have a reservation (for an Ibis?!). There were clearly tables available. . eventually, reluctantly, we were lead to a table inside and told where to sit . . we wanted to eat outside on the terrace as it was a lovely warm evening and we had been in a car all day.. they took so long to come to serve us we walked out and did not eat that night! :-(

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Two friends and me booked this hotel for an overnight stay before travelling to Switzerland on our motorcycles. After five hours on the road in 30 degree heat it was nice to arrive at a clean air conditioned hotel. The room was quite big for three, a very large shower/bathroom and nice comfortable beds . The staff generally very friendly and helpful ,the restaurant served very good food and served unlimited fries and salad also which was a bonus.
Cons: Generally this Hotel was good except one member of staff who was working the night shift. After our evening meal I decided to just go for a wander just to have a look around the local area, on returning I went to my room and the door entry card did not work. When anyone enters the hotel you will notice there isn't a proper reception desk, all there is is a circular table which is attached to a pillar with a laptop on , so when I went down to get my door card sorted there was a lady in the office just behind the area of the table with the laptop. I approached the Lady in the office and just knocked the door to get her attention where she turned and asked what I wanted and I explained the issue with the card, she then mentioned to me in an unfriendly tone stating that I shouldn't be knocking the door and be in that area which i then apologised and explained i didnt know as there was no signage stating her fact, but her short attitude was really the only negative about this Hotel.

Pros: The room was good size and facilities good, but had a rather sour smell - despite leaving the window open for a while this persisted
Cons: Breakfast was good, but had to queue for 15 minutes for coffee machine as it needed replenishing with coffee etc - the staff sorted it as quickly as they could, but surely this should have been checked before the morning breakfast rush started.

Cons: The entire building, including its equipment, needs a complete renovation.
7.5 Good
Pros: We stayed here due to the location and parking - it did not disappoint. Did not eat at the hotel due to the pricing. The room was big and roomy and the TV had multiple channels.
Cons: The bathroom had paint peeling from the window. The shower is next to a window! How about a blind on the window (and some paint)?? The outside of the hotel looks "tired" and in need of some work. We have a Mercure hotel (Elcot Park) close to home and it is far better than this one.
7.5 Good
Pros: The thing that I liked the most was a incredible discount we got for this room. I'm travelling quite often in Besancon and it is the first time that i stay in this hotel (i guess because normally the rooms are out of my price range). It is perfectly located for me as it is close to the center and even closer to were my friends live.
Cons: The hotel is quite old which can especially notice in the bathroom. I don't believe the 4 stars are accurate and if you are going to pay the full price I definitely don't recommend this hotel as i find the rooms way overpriced.

6.7 Good
Pros: Close to the train station
Cons: The first room I was assigned smelled of cigarette smoke. Thankfully they had other available rooms
7.5 Good
Pros: A typical 2-stars-hotel. Everything is simple and of low quality. But it's clean; bed and bathroom are o.k. 15 minutes by feet to the City centre.
Cons: Situated close to a busy street. You have to close the windows in order to get some sleep!
5.8 Okay
Pros: The hotel is located very close to the central train station of Besancon which maked the hotel preferable for us. Basic requirements for an accommodation are matched in the room. The staff at the reception could not really speak English but they were friendly enough to communicate.
Cons: I have never stayed at a hotel at which the room smells like this awful. Oh my God, the room was smelling literally like an ashtray such that somebody had smoked in this room continuously for 24 hours and 7 days. That was terrible. In my opinon, it should not be that difficult to wash out the carpets with a carpet washing machine and wash the curtains and bed sheets in a washing machine to get rid of this awful smell. It was very difficult for me to fall asleep because of the heavy smell of the room. The ironic thing is that they give you a warning during the check in process which states that smoking is forbidden inside the hotel.. I would not like to stay again at this hotel or some hotel which has the same conditions. If you are sensitive against the smells, I would not recommend you to stay at this hotel..
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The location is ideal: close to the center of the town and to the railstation; a good restaurant in the neighborhood.
Cons: The breakfast is very poor, if you do not get up in the morning! You find almost nothing, even if it's still the hour of breakfast. At 10 o'clock, the maid ask if you leave, because she has to do the room!
