If you find yourself in Versailles and want to make a whole day for the palace tour this hotel is adequate. It's a ten minute walk to the palace. It's located on the main square near many restaurants. The Tuesday local market was open on the day we went. Its a veggie affair. The rooms are clean enough but a... More

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to comment. Unfortunately, the walls of our hotel aren't able to accomodate a lift, I apologise for any inconvenience caused with your luggage. We are, however, constantly renovating bit by bit certain aspects of the hotel in order to freshen it up and still keep a historical appearance. Surprisingly to some, our hotel... More

Couldn't get any better. GPS got us right to the front of the hotel, pulled up to the gate at the entrance of the inner-quad (all parking), gate opened, pulled in and parked, checked in and got situated in a large, immaculate room with only one flight of steps and we were ready to start sight seeing. Just park your... More

We stayed here for 1 night while visiting Versailles Palace in September 2014. We took the train and walked to the hotel which is about 1/4 - 1/3 mile from the train station. Check in was easy. We got there in the morning and the hotel held our bags while we visited the Palace. When we got back we got... More

Hello, Thank you very much for taking the time to comment. It seems you had an overall good experience of our hotel and I am glad. We have only 1 to 2 weeks of very strong heat per year which is why our hotel does not have any A/C installed. I apologise for any discomfort caused. We would be happy... More

Great service and nice quiet room overlooking courtyard car park. Very short walk to restaurants and Versailles palace. Great that we could leave the car there for free while we spent a day at Versailles which was only about 10 or so minutes away on foot. Staff very helpful and friendly. Breakfast very nice - bread and croissants.

Hello, Thank you for your kind comment. I'm glad you appreciated your stay! Indeed it is no problem for guests to leave their cars in our parking on their departure day to visit town, and it is very handy in a town that has limited parking spots. We hope to welcome you again should you chose Versailles for a next... More

Spent three nights here on recommendations from tripadvisor,we were not disappointed, parking was high on the list and the proximity to the chateaux good. This is not a modern hotel so first impressions are maybe mixed, the staff are friendly and helpful, the young lady on reception spoke excellent English as opposed to my school French. The room was large... More

Disappointing at first. Rather shabby. Receptionist was very nice with excellent English. Room is good size and very clean. Brilliant shower. Double doors opening over car park area. On the 3rd floor, so lots of steps! Breakfast very basic. Parking is excellent, lots of space. Location is also really good, in the old part of Versailles by the markets with... More

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.

Hello, Thank you so much for your wonderful comment. I'm very sorry you found the room a little small and for the lack of coffee/tea making amenities.

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

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
