We stayed here one night only in reason of an event in the Scenacle. We really liked the hotel and would most definitely stay here again. The rooms were very well decorated, the TV was big, there was a coffee machine in the room. Very nicely warmed and cozy. The staff was very kind and allowed for a late check-out... More

We got the family room at the entrance. 2 queen size bed ( one in a sofa). We were not in the nicest and oldest place. Only one bottle of water in the room where we were 4 and no free coffee. Staff was nice. No parking. We found place outside not far but you have to pay. Breakfast place... More

Hotel building is very ordinary outside up a lane, however inside has character. Welcome very friendly, rooms are adequate, small lift for just 2 persons with bags, but that is all that you need. Limited parking, so arrange in advance for convenience. Breakfast is served underground in a unique setting, we even photographed it.. Desk officer supplied very helpful advice... More

The Best Western name led us to expect bland modernity, but "Citadelle" was more like what we found. The rooms and spaces are gorgeous re-decorations of an old French castle. Everything was modern and comfortable. Decent air conditioning, fabulous bed linens, great breakfast and beautiful décor throughout. We were very pleased with our choice and plan to return.

We found the hotel welcoming with a good sized bed but a rather short shower. The room had a Nespresso machine that I had to look up instructions for. The weirdest thing was we were two people in a double room and there was one coffee, one tea bag, one bottle of water. When I asked for more coffee the... More

Hotel staff was helpful, the Reception area seemed clean, despite the rather grim outside walls. Our hotel room was on the dark side and perhaps because of this gave the impression of lack of cleanliness. Bathroom was extremely small, with the shower stall encroaching on the toilet area. Loved Besancon, but would not stay at this hotel again.

The main building of the hotel Best Western of Besançon is a former convent. It has been completely renovated and restored on a contemporary industrial style. In two dependencies of the hotel (annex and Pavilion), the owners have created rooms. Also, all the rooms are different and there are also different categories. Our staff is present 24/24 and all the... More

Spent a couple of nights here as we toured the region. Everyone was very helpful even down to freezing an ice pack for us to help my wife's swollen knee.

Initial impression was how dark the interior of this hotel is. Our room was in the annex with windows overlooking a dirty skylight and a wall to another part of the hotel 1.5 metres away - not much of a view! Again, the decor was extremely dark and the room very small. Not somewhere to spend any longer than necessary.... More
