My husband and I stayed one night at the Grand Monarque at the beginning of a weeklong visit to Paris, and we wish we had been able to stay longer! Our room was quite large and very clean and had a supremely comfortable bed and a view of the main square and the Cathedral. The bathroom was very large (especially... More

Just spend 4nights at The Grand Monarque, where we always stay when in Chartres. It was our 7th stay at this hotel. This time we stayed in a small suite since we were on vacation as a family of 5. The kids are 5, 9 and 10. As always the room was nice and clean, the staff were great and... More

We had a thoroughly enjoyable two night stay at this hotel. Our room overlooked a quiet side street and was very clean and cosy. There was a lively buzz in the lobby bar which we enjoyed, the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful providing excellent service when you wanted it. One of our nights we ate in the Bistro...

We thank you for your great comment about your stay at Le Grand Monarque : we are actually a good idea for a christmas shopping week-end ! We are 1H from Paris, ideally located in Chartres, close to the cathedral and you can enjoy the spa after a busy day. We would be glad to welcome you back. Best regards. More

Un hôtel historique mais à l'entretien et la grande qualité d'aménagement moderne. Un charme fou ( essayez les cocktails du bar et le black burger de la Brasserie La Cour ). Calme et détente, cocooning: un séjour à recommander ! We spent a night at the Grand Monarque: big mistake, we should have stayed more. Full of history but classy... More

The hotel is located right in the town center, in a lovely old building full of charm, very nicely furnished. The staff was very helpful all along at the desk, bar and restaurant. Thanks to this wonderful halt, we've enjoyed Chartres a lot. Well done to the team of BW Le Grand Monarque.

This is a character hotel ideal for visiting the wonderful cathedral. It has great atmosphere but some aspects of decor in the public ares are a little jaded and need upgrading. Service was efficient and to the standard you would expect but was perhaps a little cool rather than friendly. Our superior room was large with a comfortable bed and... More

This is a very pleasant traditional old hotel. Situated just outside the pedestrianised heart of the old town, it is about a ten minute walk from the fabulous cathedral. My luxury room was large with a separate seating area with a big comfortable bed and recently redecorated in modern style so everything was clean and fresh. The room was also... More

We thank you for your positive and objective comment about your stay at Le Grand Monarque : you enjoyed all the best ! But for your next stay you could also discover our 800m² spa and as for parking, you'd better booked your massages before your stay. We hope to welcome you back soon, best regards. More
