Hidden away in the back streets of Besancon under the ramparts, Le Sauvage was an excellent find and we will return. Security means that you have to ring the bell to gain access but once booked in you have the code to come and go as you wish. The hotel is not easy to find but the SatNav helped greatly....

This tastefully-furnished, well-run hotel is strategically placed (just below the ramparts of the city's mighty Vauban fort) with easy access to the town centre and commanding views. Very quiet surroundings in an area more residential than commercial, this hotel is a haven with splendidly appointed balconies opening from dining areas, and an excellent breakfast.

We spent 1 night in this very nice hotel! Service was very polite, friendly and helpful. Hotel is so nicely decorated, clean and cozy. Our room was quite big as well as the bathroom that had a walkin big shower. Only little minor flaw, the bathroom door would close but still had a little gap. Depending on who is staying...

My husband and I spent two nights over New Years at "Le Sauvage Hotel" in Besancon. The owner, of the hotel Aurelie, made sure that every wish was fulfilled. The hotel is in a historical building (a transformed convent) and is very elegant. Our room was large and beautifully furnished in an antique traditional french style. The bathroom was big...

Lovely hotel high on a hill. Very elegant and old-fashioned in a good way. The room was neat and the bathroom was recently renovated with modern equipment. Excellent breakfast in a beautiful room with a view, smooth jazz playing in the background. Could not ask for more! Parking in a garden, also a secret garden to be found...

I definitely did appreciate my stay at this beautifully renovated hotel. Great historic building, location and atmosphere. The welcome was excellent and staff very friendly and professional. Rooms are well furnished and decorated with premium quality furniture. Breakfast is awesome and I of course recommend the local cheese. One little thing that seemed odd to me, the pillows on the...

Besancon is a lovely little town off the tourist trail. It's wrapped in a bend of the river and boasts a gigantic hilltop fortress by Vauban. Part of Hotel Le Sauvage was originally a chapel and it's all been renovated recently with great care. Our room was lovely, with a nice big modern bathroom. Breakfast is served in a large...

The hotel is very nice - the old building was beautifully renovated. The wifi network is however not very stable - we could not connect to the network closest to us. We did not try the breakfast - EUR 13,50 seemed us not worthwhile.

Great hotel! Perfect atmosphere, nicely decorated and complete rooms. Beautiful garden (= parking) embedded in an enchanting landscape. Attentive staff. Perfect breakfadt. Could be a five out of five stars hotel. But how is it possible that in 2016 your wifi network doesn't work???? Although offered in the ad, no apologies about the failing wifi, just the answer "our walls...
