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.
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.
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!
Central location, friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast.
Lack of place to unpack into. No cupboard and very small hanging space for 2.
Really helpful arrival instructions provided by the hotel Good location Quality towels
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
Right in the town centre... 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...
