A charming city off the tourist path. When you read there are a lot of hills and a lot of walking they mean it. The most important thing when visiting here is to be fluenent in French or have a good guide. The people are very friendly, but language is a problem. Most of the restaurants we visited, no english,...

A budget hotel is what it is, a cheap stay overnight. This hotel was cheap, but still Clean room, good Englishspeaking personell, free wifi in the room. Breakfast costs extra as some hotels does- but with such cheap prize for the room its ok. Breakfast was very good, so good it could've been in a 5 star hotel! For a...

Room was absolutely fine and the reception staff very helpful. The problem was with an unbelievably arrogant, stupid and unhelpful restaurant manager. I had been staying for three nights and things were fine until the last evening when a booking had been made for 20 people to have dinner at 9pm. I was leaving very early in the morning 5:30...

Functional hotel within easy walking distance along the River Doubs to the city of Besancon. There is a good resaurant on site but there are also plenty of places to eat in the town itself. It is a quieter location than staying within the town.

I often prefer Ibis during my trips as you always know what to expect. The hotel is centrally located, just 10' on from the central square while Citadelle is about 20-30' on foot. There is a garage underneath the hotel which costs 8€ so no worries about the car. The rooms are of a good size, very clean, soundproof and...

Not a bad Ibis at all - right in the middle of town with a secure car park. The rooms were off a good size and comfortable. The hotel had a restaurant which we ate in as the city itself, which was stunning, seemed to lack eateries. Breakfast was standard and not as much choice as some ibis hotels I...

The hotel was located in a good position, walking distance to explore the city centre. Like most Ibis hotels, you pretty much know what you can expect from room size, quality and facilities. This was no different and was certainly not the worst budget style motel we stayed at on our travels in the region. If the room is clean...

Our stay at the La City Ibis was spoilt by the poor service we felt we received from the reception staff. Firstly the inadequate directions for the access to and exit from the car park and secondly when dealing with the fact that we had been allocated a room that had not been cleaned and prepared for use by the...
