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

Hello, What a wonderful comment, thank you so much for taking the time to write it. I'm sorry the front desk safe was not suggested to you as that can be handy considering we are not able to install any in the rooms for the moment. I am, however, happy to read you enjoyed your stay and appreciated multiple facets... 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. 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

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. It is indeed quite common here and as our hotel is an old and historic building, for security reasons we are not able to install them. I'm glad everything went well during you... 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
