Fabulous 8.6 From 195 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
The location is an easy and pleasant walk to a multitude of shops and restaurants on Rue Grande and adjoining streets. The in-house continental breakfast is one of the best that I have enjoyed. The young Rumanian server was diligent and a pleasure to talk with. The front desk personnel were very helpful and friendly. In particular, I would like to commend Filipe who was most helpful and attentive following my arrival when I wasn't feeling well. My stay in Besancon was enhanced by my stay at the BW Citadelle.

Best Western Citadelle
Room could have done with decorating and the bathroom needed some attention as shower door leaked. Room was also very dark as insufficient lighting.
