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 stayed here again in September and, as usual, we were delighted with the room and with the friendly staff. We always stay here on our way back to the U.K. from southern France. We had booked at meal in Le Georges and again we were very pleased with the service and quality of food. We will be staying here... More

This charming old grand hotel in the center of Chartres, has recently renovated rooms. The reception area and lobby are a little run down, but don't let that discourage you because our room was terrific. We opted for a suite, upgrading after noticing a last minute deal, and it was large, smart, spotless, quiet and very comfortable. The property is... More

I regularly travel to Chartres with work, The Grand Monarque is in a great position in the centre of town which means that all the tourist attractions as well as local restuarants are on the doorstep. The service and facilities never let me down and its always a pleasure to stay there.

My 2nd time staying at Le Grand Monarque, and it's wonderful. A warm welcome, beautiful rooms, feels like home. Lovely decor, very comfortable beds, spotlessly clean, fabulous bathrooms where they've thought of everything, well sound proofed so quiet. The restaurant staff are professional and helpful. The only reason I've rated the hotel a 4 and not 5 is that I'd... More

We thank you so much for your warm advice about your second stay at Le Grand Monarque. We apologize for you not find a vegetable menu at the restaurant but in fact you can always ask for vegetarian option on some course to your waiter. We hope to see you third ! Best regards. More

You will feel like a member of the upper crust as you enter this grand old hotel. The lobby is huge (sadly, the reception area is like a closet) and the restaurant looks as though the Duke and Duchess are frequent diners. So why only four stars? We loved the double bowl sink, but there were mildew spots in the... More

We have stayed several times in Chartres but this was the first in Le Grand Monarque and will not be the last. We could not fault it, from the welcoming staff on Reception to the beautiful room. We were on the top floor at the back (which was quiet with large windows to open) and the room was beautifully decorated... More

Never having been to Chartres, we decided to reserve our hotel at Le Grand Monarque. What a nice surprise! The reception was friendly, helpful and efficient - and the room was spacious, clean, and well appointed. If we have an occasion to return to Chartres - we will definitely stay again at Le Grand Monarque.

This is an interesting hotel. First it is ideally situated for the cathedral and old town centre. My room was on the third floor at the furthest point from the lift which meant trying to get luggage along twisting narrow corridors. The lift itself is tiny - it says it is for 4 people, but they will need to be... More

We used the Best Western in Chartres as stopover on way back to UK and to enable a day trip to Paris, the station only a 10 min walk, very handy.
