5,0 Okay
Pros: The location is very good - near to the old town and citadelle - and other sightseeing places
Cons: The stuff tried to charge more than booked with booking.com - No bottled water in the room.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: The room is a classic Íbis. Really clean, good bed, good space in general, simple but good bathroom. The hotel restaurant is really really good, it was a surprise how good it was! We arrived at night and had dinner there, which was perfect since we have a small baby. The food was awesome!! Recommend!
Cons: The breakfast was really simple, there was no bread at all at 9:30 (it ends 10:00) and it was around 10 euros per person, too expensive! Also , the parking for the car was around 10 euros. Those costs increased a lot the final price for the stay.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Hotel generell
Cons: Restaurant: The choice of dishes in the restaurant is limited. Instead of a cheese platter that is not offered, a slightly bigger piece of Camenbert was served without further ado and then charged twice. Also one drink was charged too much. This means that the restaurant is not recommendable.
7,0 Good
Pros: Good hotel according to IBIS standard. Good to spend a few nights
Cons: Access to parking lot is quite complicated. You need to check-in first, to get the code to enter the parking lot. Unfortunatelly it's a one way street, so you need to circle arround the block after you got the code. Would have been nice to know this procedure in advance. In the late evening it's a bit frustrating.

7,0 Good
Pros: The breakfast
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! :-(
6,0 Good
Pros: Basic breakfast, according to french standard with fresh orange juice. Free coffee and tea all day long, provided at the lift.
Cons: Room was ok, but you can see that many people already stayed there. Bed wasn't that comfortable.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is in a very old (16th century) building, but is well renovated/modernized, keeping some of the old charm. Breakfast was very nice, especially the setting in the old cellar.

Pros: Charming staff
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Very warm welcome from reception, nice reception area. Breakfast very good, lots of choice. Close to the centre and all tourist attractions.
Cons: Maybe scrambled eggs could be done to order if only a few guests. The room we stayed in was on the top floor and sold to us as an upgrade but it appeared quite small especially as the poorly designed curtain fitting seemed to take up a lot of space.
7,0 Good
Pros: The welcome from the lady at reception who spoke beautiful English was what started a great short stay. Great proximity to many restaurant options. The room was lovely, clean and very quiet. We could not fault and will gladly stay here again.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: Good bar snacks available.
Cons: Not a dislike but access to rear parking would be tight for a large car.
7,9 Good
Pros: Really helpful staff, modern fresh room that exceeded expectations, very central location - all the key sights were a short walk away and close to restaurants.
Cons: Whole building was a bit warm (more so than you would expect for the outside temp) so had to resort to drying Aircon at night. Would have preferred to have just slept with the windows open but think we must have hit Besancon during Freshers week!
8,0 Excellent
Pros: This is a comfortable basic hotel without frills, but the location is excellent. A big advantage is the on-site parking for only $8 a night.
6,0 Good
Pros: The shower was amazing apart from not having any handle to pull the door close. The location was perfect.
Cons: I don't know who pick up the toilet seat design or who even though it was a good idea to design it in the first place but it is really poor. Not designed for a grown up man anatomy at all. You could have had a normal one fixed on the otger wall ( at 90 degree from where it is now - room 210-) Ridiculous. When design takes over practicality and fonctionality. There was no handle to pull the shower door close. Fairly pricy for a hotel of that standard. Ibis hotel used to be affordable for the level of comfort they bare.

Cons: The breakfast was OK but it was already empty (we woke up late but still in time); the girl at the reception didn't bother to re-fill the empty plates. We had to scrape off the last ham frozen onto the cold plate.

4,2 Okay
Cons: I was very surprised to see that such a simple hotel is part of ibis chain! Very, very,very basic! We booked a triple room and we had to make the bunker bed ourselves! Toilet with no toilet seat, no curtain in the shower, shower wall in very bad condition, sink in bedroom, the double bed was badly made and during the night it became undone and we had the plastic mattress protector against our skin!!! Aghhh!! Was that bad that we laughed about it with! The only positive was that the shower had very good pressure. I can't rate the staff because we arrived after 9pm and we checked in ourselves with the night machine

Pros: Open 24/7 which is good when you are traveling by car and arrive at late hours.
Cons: The room smelled mould and dust and the bathroom was tiny and plastiky. The cleaning lady entered the room 3 times between 8h30 and 12h which was the check out time while we were still asleep.
4,0 Okay
Cons: bathroom was so small and not good
4,2 Okay
Cons: dirty carpet. stench of cigarettes making breathing difficult. disgusting
2,5 Mediocre
Pros: The location of the hotel was good; close to shopping and restaurants.
Cons: The hotel was filthy. I didn't expect a lot of frills considering it is a budget hotel. We just needed a place to sleep over on our long road trip. However, I did expect the room to be clean. I cannot even believe how disgusting the room was. The walls and carpet were filthy. There looked to be old, smeared snot on the bunk above the double bed. The bathroom didn't look like it had been mopped out. The "air conditioning" barely cooled the room. Also, the room, despite being non-smoking, reeked of cigarette smoke. I will say the sheets, at least, were clean. Trust me...I gave them a close inspection. The man working at the front desk was rude to myself and my children, yelling at them for just standing on the grass under the shade of a tree outside. The only reason we did not leave was that we had already travelled a long day and decided to just suck it up for one night. Thankfully I travel with hand sanitizer!

5,8 Okay
Pros: The location.
Cons: The room had not been cleaned properly. Behind the second door to the room there were spiders and cobwebs. When we arrived to breakfast the next morning, which we had paid for the night before at check-in, there were no eggs left, nor pancakes. We were told that they could not replenish the breakfast buffet. We had to insist to be re-imbursed as initially they did not want to re-imburse the breakfast.
5,4 Okay
Pros: Location and staff
Cons: Old building like camping. No fridge in the room
3,8 Mediocre
Pros: Parking was available for free. Secured with a gate, the area must be a bit criminal.
Cons: The reception was not friendly. The room interior looked old. Water boiler looked also very old. Extra pillows had stains. Coffee machine at breakfast was not working, customers had to ask for help. The room price is not justified.
7,5 Good
Pros: Simplicity and cleanliness
7,9 Good
Pros: The staff is great. This my second stay
Cons: More quality toilet paper
8,8 Excellent
Pros: This is a very good deal for the money. We were met by very friendly staff and felt welcome and well informed right away. Being scandinavian we really detest the bedlinen-system where the cover consists of a blanket with a bedsheet tightly fastened all around the mattress making you feel pinned down, and by loosening it all it make a mess of the covers and gives you a really unhygienic feeling about the blanket. We asked the staff when having dinner in their restaurant for an extra sheet to make it possible to sleep without having to share blanket and sheet, and were overwhelmed to find a huge, soft and warm comforter with a large sheet under it. Really comfortable - very good service!! Why don't they use this on all their double beds......
6,3 Good
Pros: good location for food
Cons: had a nasty smell. we paid for 1 double and 1 single bed in each room. only had double so 3 in a bit was tight

Pros: The staff were lovely and accomodating. The room was quiet and comfortable. Warm lighting. The shower was strong and hot and the checkout was easy.
Cons: It was very basic but I think thats the style and purpose they are going for. It is in a sports centre so it must be for people that spend very little of their lives in bed. It was grand for one night. The wifi was too weak to connect on phone and laptop. The check out is early but its stated when you reserve. 9am! So for a sleep and go its grand.
6,7 Good

Pros: Location great - nice room comfortable bed
Cons: Machine coffee for breakfast
5,0 Okay
Pros: Location is great.
Cons: Hôtel de Paris is a small hotel in a quaint street in Besançon near everything in town. Location +++. It could be a great simple hotel with spartan decoration and tastefully groomed. Instead the rooms are stuffy and overheated, the bathrooms and bed are not as comfortable as you would like them to be. The staff is not the kindest and in all, the experience is not great. I guess staying here for a night is ok, but I must say the very positive reviews of this hotel are overrated.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable bed, nice bathroom. Parking available in courtyard. Right in centre of town. Excellent breakfast for EUR 13 per person.
Cons: Long corridor to get to bedroom. Dubious taste of chairs lining corridor from reception to front door, probably taking up too much space and not usable.

Pros: Good breakfast
Cons: Not easy to find as it was on a roundabout obscured by trees
6,3 Good
Pros: Breakfast was good. Scrambled eggs excellent.
Cons: Dinner food chosen off the blackboard (Saute chicken and pasta) was overcooked and dry. Choice on the 'ardoise' was varied and good. There was no anti slip facility in the bath and I slipped over hitting the tap whilst showering. This turned the tap to max hot whilst I was lying in the bath. I drew blood splitting the skin on my elbow and hurt my back. I reported this to the management and told them to make a note against my booking. I did this in my French, but not sure they have noted it. A fellow quest understood my French and asked what happened, so there should not have been problem with my French.
7,5 Good
Pros: The location was ideal for a one night stop over on route to Germany. Breakfast was good and plenty of choice. Room and bathroom very clean.
Cons: Accommodation and facilities were basic but suited our need at the time. Not exciting, however it was very cheap.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Rooms are comfortable. I was staying during cold weather which posed no problem (room, bathroom was warm). Staff were friendly and helpful. Location close to motorway good for a stopover, noise from street was not too bad. (This time I had a room at the backside of the hotel facing a parking lot. But also at a previous stay a room facing the "garden" of the hotel was not particularly noisy.) Breakfast was OK and worth the money.
Cons: I thought the coffee (from machine) was a bit bitter at breakfast. The disadvantage of the location is that the surroundings are not "nice", it is essentially a commercial area.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Great location and good food in restaurant.
Cons: Nothing
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Regular french chain hotel, nothing special, no atmosphere, breakfast was plain, but it's what you paid for, if you need to only spend the night to continue your journey the next day then this is an okay choice

9,2 Excellent
Pros: Didn't really realize it was almost a small apartment. Separate street entrance and even a private door to the back garden area. It was a bit of inconvenience having bathroom downstairs and bed upstairs. Lots of room in sitting area/breakfast room downstairs. Private breakfast served promptly at the agreed time. We would be happy to return!

Pros: The welcome was very warm and our host, Richard could not have been more helpful with suggestions for places to eat and to visit and directions for walking into town etc. It was an easy 15 minute walk into the old part of Besancon which is a lovely and interesting city. The Citadel is well worth visiting. Breakfast was excellent, served in our own private ‘salon’. The accommodation was charming, spacious and totally private.
Cons: Nothing

Pros: Richard was an excellent host, and the chambre d'hote facilities were charming and suited our purposes perfectly. We enjoyed a glass of wine in his lovely garden, and following Richard's instructions were able to walk into Besancon and find a restaurant for dinner. Breakfast the following morning was enjoyed in the garden, but there is a small dining table inside also. We would happily return to Villa Molina if we were in the area again.
Cons: Nothing!

Pros: Good bar snacks available.
Cons: Not a dislike but access to rear parking would be tight for a large car.
7,9 Good
Pros: Really helpful staff, modern fresh room that exceeded expectations, very central location - all the key sights were a short walk away and close to restaurants.
Cons: Whole building was a bit warm (more so than you would expect for the outside temp) so had to resort to drying Aircon at night. Would have preferred to have just slept with the windows open but think we must have hit Besancon during Freshers week!
8,0 Excellent
Pros: This is a comfortable basic hotel without frills, but the location is excellent. A big advantage is the on-site parking for only $8 a night.
6,0 Good
Pros: The shower was amazing apart from not having any handle to pull the door close. The location was perfect.
Cons: I don't know who pick up the toilet seat design or who even though it was a good idea to design it in the first place but it is really poor. Not designed for a grown up man anatomy at all. You could have had a normal one fixed on the otger wall ( at 90 degree from where it is now - room 210-) Ridiculous. When design takes over practicality and fonctionality. There was no handle to pull the shower door close. Fairly pricy for a hotel of that standard. Ibis hotel used to be affordable for the level of comfort they bare.

Pros: The breakfast
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! :-(

Pros: Basic breakfast, according to french standard with fresh orange juice. Free coffee and tea all day long, provided at the lift.
Cons: Room was ok, but you can see that many people already stayed there. Bed wasn't that comfortable.

Pros: Hotel was immaculate, clean, modern and very welcoming, as were the staff. The bedrooms and en-suite were very spacious. We travelled with family, who had an adjacent room which made our adjoining terraces huge and very relaxing to sit in in the evening. We would highly recommend this hotel. We will return to this hotel and stay longer next time and visit this beautiful historic city
