We have been coming to this charming hotel for over 20 years and would not stay anywhere else in Versailles. The position is perfect, within walking distance from the train station Rive Droite. The Palace is a ten minute, lovely walk down one of the beautiful tree-lined avenues. The best food market ever takes place on Friday and Sunday mornings... More

Very central location - easy walk to the Palace of Versailles. Plenty of off-road parking. Old-style hotel with plenty of character: some might find it a little dingy but I loved it. Very quiet. Nice breakfast.

Right downtown and it felt safe. - Free parking for guests - Free wifi for guests - Good price Bad Aspects: - No air conditioning! It was so hot that we had the windows open... More

This has been a great find. Yes it is old and doesn't have air conditioning but we knew that when we booked (check out previous reviews),but we are experiencing the hottest days for a long time. Very fast and powerful shower, delightful hotel staff, secure courtyard parking and a sitting area under the trees.. And close to the chateau. We... More

Pros: on the doorstep of the Chateau, free off street parking (worth a lot in Versailles) Cons: very rude receptionist who claimed not to speak English although most people staying at the hotel were British and American. She would rather smoke her cigarettes and watch TV in the back room than help people. When I called at 9 pm. for... More

Nice hotel, clean with large bathroom. Breakfast was good, not exceptional. Centrally located in a lovely little area. Lots of shops in market in Square during the day. Walking distance to palace of Versailles. Lots of good restaurants nearby.

The location is superb; the staff helpful. Rooms were okay, though our carpet had a couple of stains. Otherwise very clean. Lots of free parking, and a great price. Lots of restaurants, and the Chateau, are nearby. Watch out for Sundays when the one-way approach road is closed to traffic (back up the other wrong-way one-way street). The biggest drawbacks:...

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to comment. I'm glad your stay was satisfactory. I apologise for the WIFI connection that tends to be less optimal when there are too many connections at once.

The rooms are very small but comfortable. Everything you need is there. When we discovered we had left a pair of shoes behind they were kind enough to package them up and mail them back to us. The only change was the postage. The rating would have been five stars but the internet didn't always work.

Our free WIFI can be a little capricious at times when too many people are connected at the same moment. I do remember the shoes that you left behind, my director was happy to have them sent...

We chose this hotel for the included secure parking and good location to the palace. Both of which made a visit very convenient. We were pleasantly surprised by our big room, it was nice to spread out after small hotel rooms. The room itself was comfortable, but the breakfast was below average - definitely room for improvement. Self cater or... More

We stayed on the1st floor (2nd in the USA) in a double room overlooking the secure car park. Very comfortable beds, fresh linens, pillows and towels. Room size adequate for the 3 of us. Good size bathroom with shower over tub. Furniture and bathroom a bit dated but clean and that's what matters to us. Yes, the floors squeaked but... More
