We had a nice room with a great view in this hotel. We were right across the street from both the chateau and the theater. Anything we wanted was within a close walk, including a parking garage. The room was equipped with a fan, which made it feel like home to me. The staff was helpful and friendly. The bathroom... More

Large rooms in close proximity to Château de Fontainebleau. Friendly staff. Traffic noise in the morning ensures that you don't sleep in & miss the reason for coming to Fontainebleau. Rooms are quite basic - but we didn't come to Fontainebleau to spend a lot of time in the Hotel.

We went to Fontainebleau for 1 night to enjoy the castle and surroundings. This is the 2nd time we've stayed at this hotel and what a pleasant surprise. The rooms have been upgraded and are very,very nice. The wonderful couple who now own the hotel are working hard to make it perfect and are very hospitable. Do try the Bacchus... More

I have been coming back to this hotel for eleven years now, and this is the only place to stay in Fontainebleau. There has been some changes in staff and management over the years but the denominator is friendliness and hospitality. They really want to have the best time. Apart from located in the best part of Fontainebleau there is... More

Wonderful find, directly across from the Fontainebleau Palace. The host couple were welcoming, charming and quite funny. The room spacious, the bathroom as well (for a small French hotel). Parking was much easier than we'd thought, given some of the comments here. We lucked out in the late afternoon with a space on the hotel's street, which remained free of... More

The room was adequate, ensuite bathroom good, but bed saggy, beautiful window box flowers, big windows with verdant view. This older, small hotel is undergoing renovation right now, and I only hope they keep the beautiful walnut banistered iron winding staircase. The rooms (our old room, anyway) have a characterless veneer applied in the past that stripped all of the... More

This is a 2* hotel that is perfectly located in the center of Fontainebleau. I have stayed here four times over the past ten years and the quality and service have been consistent on each of my visits. The room cost Euro 75-80 per night plus breakfast and you get what you pay for and more. My room had a... More

Small hotel in city center of Fontainbleu, near Chateux, near bar and coffe. Very kind and simple (2star) but not low level, good price. Very nice people at reception, friendly and smiling. Large and simple room, clean and silent.

Walking distance to everything you could possibly need. Adequate but clean room with a comfortable bed. Bathroon adequate and clean. Was a typical, economically priced French hotel.People warm and welcoming and as helpful as they could be with our limited French ability. Very good, a;beit expensive, breakfast served in adjoining restaurant.

Very noisy, on a corner opposite the Fontainbleau chateau. With no a/c, it is tough to keep the windows closed, but then you suffer with the noise al night. Worst bed I have had in many years. it should have been replaced years ago. It sagged so badly that we had to hold onto the edge to keep from rolling... More
