Fabulous 8.6 From 291 reviews

Best Western Citadelle, Besancon
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.
