It is also possible to park the bikes on the terraces of the rooms (first and second floor), which are not accessible from outside." Buffet breakfast.

Dijon - Hostellerie du Chapeau Rouge

Modern hotel that's been recommended to us by cyclists

5 rue Michelet
21000 Dijon
Côte-d'Or, Burgundy

Price from: €100

Open: All year

View map

This really is a nice place to stay (checkout that bathroom above!) It was recommended to us by cyclists who stayed here at the end of their Burgundy cycling holiday. This is a private house that's been converted into a small, modern hotel that's very welcoming to cyclists. When I contacted the management, they said they could store some bikes in the hotel; if they have groups in, they use a locked room in a secure public parking complex near the hotel. They also provide maps ("with pleasure!" they said) and can help with bike hire.  The onsite restaurant is also a treat with Michelin stars and a wine list with a who's who of local winemakers.  Free wifi. Spa and wellness centre (free for guest use with hamman).
