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. We do have quite come critics as they squeak quite a bit, and the fact that our hotel is a historic building is exactly the explanation to that. I hope... More

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.

We stayed here at the end of September 2014 and had a lovely 6 night break at Le Cheval Rouge. Check in was easy and our room was huge 2 double beds, the bathroom was spotless and there were plenty of towels. Breakfast for about €9 set us up for the day.

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

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.

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.

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.
