If you are visiting the palace of Versailles (and you should if you haven't already!) this is a really good little hotel to stay at. We stayed in a double room on a Saturday night at the end of August for c £75 and thought it very good value. What's good - Location - it really is just 10 minutes... More

Spent two nights here whilst visiting Versailles, an excellent town and the palace is just superb. The location of this average priced hotel is spot on. 10 minutes to the palace and a wonderful selection of restaurants and bars around the market square. The advantage of the location is that it also has secure car parking. The hotel itself was... More

We stayed 4 nights on a recent visit to Paris and had booked a family room online. Previous reviews had not raised expectations and the decision to stay here was based primarily on its location. We were on the second leg of a holiday to France and so had a car packed with luggage that needed secure parking. We were... More

Hello, Thank you very much for your comment. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and all the practical locations situated all around our hotel. You have described our situation perfectly!

I recently stayed at the Hotel Cheval Rouge with my husband and 2 young kids. We expected something simple for the price ( $136.00 for a quad room) but this room was beyond Spartan and limited in terms of even basic comfort. Worse, the staff was inconsistent in their helpfulness and were unapologetic regarding the complete lack of internet, despite... More

We chose this hotel on the basis of reviews and really enjoyed our 3 night stay. The hotel is definitely 3 star but good value and quite charming, built as it is around a small courtyard which provides secure parking for about 15 cars, right in the middle of Versailles. The staff were very friendly and our room was huge,... More

Perfect location to explore Versailles and Paris. Secure free car park which is bonus! Lots of restaurants, cafes and bars on the square, some recommended by the friendly staff. Breakfast was simple but plentiful (extra cost but worth it). Rooms are simple, functional, clean but a little outdated. I would certainly recommend it as it ticked all the boxes.

The best bit about this hotel is the convenient free parking in centre of Versailles. If I was staying here again I would try and get a better room. Our room (238) was pretty basic but clean, and we had to climb an uneven winding staircase up two floors to get to it. There is no lift so its a... More

We didn't need or want luxurious accommodations in Versailles. We came to see the palace and grounds. We were able to get a good night's sleep in a comfortable bed, in a clean room, with a clean, modern bath. Our rather spacious room was on the second floor overlooking a quiet courtyard. The hotel itself is tucked in a corner... More
