Super choice for visit to Chartres Cathedral. Nice room - modern bath, king bed, clean and comfortable. Excellent service - friendly at check in and out. Easy access to public parking garage. Easy walk to cathedral, river, and local shopping. Good restaurant & bar. Very nice breakfast in courtyard with retractable roof.

From the time we checked in until we left, I loved this hotel. It had a lovely old fashioned feel of quiet comfort. We paid for an upgraded room (306) which had recently been refurbished, but the shower was small and the toilet required some body twisting to get in. The bed linen had a faint smell of smoke. The...

We stayed here one night. The hotel was very nice and the service even nicer. Our room was clean and good size. We were located within an easy walk of the Cathedral and the old town. This was one place we wished we could have stayed at longer. I definitely recommend you arrange parking with them.

Still the Grande Dame of Chartres, the Grand Monarque fails to disappoint. I stay there regularly on my return from Le Mans and it is always a highlight of the trip. However, it now comes with a warning! Most of my Hotel bookings are done via www.booking.com, but to my chagrin I found out that Best Western will NOT honour... More

This was my second visit to Chartres and Le Grand Monarque Hotel. The hotel is located right in the lovely center of Chartres. Rooms are quite a small, but still functional and idyllically decorated. Only shower facilities were too small. Service has been excellent and breakfast really is a unique brilliant with local flavors. Good value for money!

Just THE perfect hotel plus Spa. In the lovely city of Chartres - a magical and memorable stay. La Cour restaurant was fine although not amazing - the meals are very reasonably priced. Of course the Cathedral is awesome. And the Spa is extremely pleasant, ham mam and sauna for a very good price.

Le Grand Monarque offers easy access to the Cathedral and shopping area - it's also close to the old town. Chartres is a beautiful, cosmopolitan town. However, we were disappointed with this hotel due a number of ridiculous issues; inadequate directions to the car park by one rushed female member of staff, the dining room being booked, the 'plunge' pool...

Best Western Grand Hotel Monarque Chartres. 30.4.2015 – 4.5.2015. We went here as a surprise birthday trip for my husband, and what a wonderful place to stay. I initially had some difficulty booking a room online, so went to Travelplanners in Southsea, my local travel agent who managed to book a “Luxury Room” on a room only basis with no... More

We stayed here for one night traveling to te south of france with our 10 week old baby. We enjoyed it very much. Staff is extremely friendly and the attention to detail the staff has put into this hotel makes you feel right at home. I would definately recommend this hotel when staying in chartres for one or more nights.
