This hotel is convenient to the palace and in the midst of a plethora of restaurants. It's on the same square as the outdoor market, itself a treat. Our room, above one of the original 1600's stable stalls was long and narrow and minimally decorated, but the bed was comfortable. Our room had two double beds, so for once had... More

This hotel is middle of the road - nothing startling. Pluses: (1) Hotel staff go out of their way to be helpful (2) location on the market place, with lots of restaurants nearby and plenty of atmosphere Negatives: (1) rooms and furnishing are basic (2) the bathrooms are very small

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to comment on our hotel. I'm glad we were of help during your stay and that you enjoyed our ideal location on the market place.

We chose this hotel because of its proximity to the Palais de Versailles. It's a ten-minute walk and it has a secure carpark in the courtyard of the hotel. The room was average, but the beds were good and it was located in the corner of a square, surrounded by places to get a good dinner. Yes, the floor squeaks... More

Hello, Thank you so much for your comment. We are so glad you had such a wonderful time with us! We are grateful for your understanding concerning the floor boards.

The staff was very friendly, and the room a reasonable size with nice bathroom. The hall light situation was a little weird - there were light switches outside the room, but it took us a while to figure that out, so at first we were just wandering in the dim light. The only other negative was that there was only... More

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I'm glad your stay went smoothly. We indeed have an emergency lighting on 24/7 that is seperate from the brighter every day lighting that our guests use. I apologise for the lack of outlets in the rooms. In all rooms there is one outlet near the beds and another... More

Stay at this place if you want to be close to the palace and a great crepe place. Room was large and clean and the desk staff was very helpful with directions. Breakfast was worth the extra dough and the Wi-Fi worked great in the room.

The room small, and lacked atmosphere although it was clean with a tiny ensuite. The room was not that well equipped- no fridge, no kettle, no safe or air con. At 89 Euros per night I felt it was over priced. Breakfast was extra, so we didn't bother with that as there are lots of cafes nearby. We stayed in... More

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to comment. Sorry to hear that aside from our location you found out hotel so bland.

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
