We spent a night in le Grand Monarque en route to Strasbourg. What a find! spoiled us for the hotels we subsequently stayed in. Its an old building which has obviously had lots of money spent on it - lovely decor, special wallpaper, good carpets. The Michelin starred restaurant was closed the night we were there so we ate in... More

Enjoyed our one night stay at the Monarque. Was lucky (or clever) enough to reserve a space in their small nearby car park. The room, a queen size double, was really well equipped and comfortable and breakfast was great too. Chartres by night is lovely and the illumination trail from 10pm to 1am was delightful. One small problem; the duvet... More

We just completed a 4 week trip to Germany and France and stayed in 10 hotels/B&B's. This hotel was definitely the nicest place that we stayed in and also the best value for our money. The room was large with a king sized bed - unusual to find in Europe in this price range. Unfortunately, we only stayed for one... More

We managed to get a good rate on our room at the Monarque and were thoroughly delighted with our stay. The room was spacious and well decorated and the bed was extra large and extremely comfortable. We had a truly delicious dinner in the Braserie, infact it was the best we'd had here. The linguine with squid ink and monkfish... More

A very nice hotel centrally located in Chartres. The hotel is old but is in good order throughout. I have stayed here several times and it has always been pleasant. The restaurant is good as is the breakfast buffet. Staff are very helpful.

Right in the heart of Chartres about 400m from the cathedral ( a 'must-visit' place)- a bustling hotel with a very good child/dog welcoming restaurant. Fleximle room set-up again good for travelling families. Our normal itinerary is arrive for dinner after a swift visit to the bar, a long sleep (it's quiet), a lateish breakfast, a mandatory visit to the... More

Stopped in Chartres on the way through the Loire valley going to Normandie, the hotel was excellent. We stayed in a suite which was large and we'll appointed. Good price, clean and quiet. king bed. The hotel is adjacent to the preservation, and the light show begins within 100 yards of the front door.

I spent weekend of 25-26 April at the hotel and was really impressed with the quality of service as well as nice and welcoming ambiance. The hotel has charming ' old school' feel and is located in the center of the town. The room was clean, spacious with large bed which was very comfortable. The hotel is ideal for long... More

Friends who live in Chartres recommended this hotel and we could not have been more pleased and add our recommendation to travelers. Everything is within walking distance and the light show in the evenings is just spectacular.
