I agree with most of the comments that this is not the greatest of hotels but it's very practical and functional and cheap being so close to the palace. I stayed with adult family members early August when it was hot so the rooms were uncomfortable due to no air con. Our rooms faced the private car park so could... More

We chose this hotel for a one-day stopover in Versailles based on its location and its price - as well as the possibility of free parking. The previous reviews were a bit variable, but we went ahead and booked anyway. I'd have no hesitation going back to this hotel next time we're in Versailles. (for the record, we lived 7... More

Great location for visiting Versailles. Good choice of restaurants and bars close by. Great morning markets. Convenient to train station. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Buy your tickets for visiting Versailles palace and gardens at reception to avoid the queues.

This hotel is in a good location to the palace and gardens. The rooms were clean, room service daily. Staff friendly and very helpful as I had booked for a large group of 20+, Breakfast good. Daily market round the corner and close to the train station into Paris. Would stay here again

My husband and I stayed here in early May. We wanted somewhere reasonably priced but central. the hotel Richaud was just that. Parking was very secure. Reception staff very friendly. Room reasonable size & clean but bed very uncomfortable and it would of been much more pleasant if the room had been aired before our arrival. Easy walk to Rive... More

This is not a four star hotel or anything but is good value for the price. It is about a 15 minute walk from the Versailles Rive Gauche station and a 10 minute or so walk to the palace of Versailles. I stayed in the fall so the lack of AC was not an issue. Wifi signal was good. The... More

It was close in for easy access to Versailles and shopping areas. It also had free parking. It really needs an update, as the carpeting in the room was old, worn, and looking dirty. It really has a bad smell in all areas. There were old hairs in the shower.Getting closer to a 1 star. My family would never stay... More

We stayed for one night and found it perfectly adequate. The reception staff were friendly and it was only a ten minute walk to Versailles. The bed was comfortable, although the bathroom needs dragging into the 90’s at least. But that close to Versailles, what do you expect for 70 Euros. Fine just for a sleep and nothing more. Round...

Stayed two nights at the start of our holiday spending the day at the Palace of Versailles. Arriving around 7.30pm we were still able to get a parking space which was very useful. Hotel room was fine - maybe hotel could do with a bit of decor renewal. No aircon so advisable to take a fan with you in the... More

The location was great as it offered quick access to transit. We were able to walk everywhere from this location. We stayed three nights. Breakfasts were provided and the usual french fare -- good food. Rooms were very clean and reasonably quiet. Staff are accommodating and approachable. WIFI is not free, but affordable.
