Had an overnight here with my wife and sister to visit the Chateau on our way back to England. Absolute ideal location, short stroll to Chateau and gardens. Staff were helpful and friendly. Plenty of choice for meals in the surrounding streets. We were there Saturday until Sunday and on both days there was a traditional market in the square... More

Everyone at the hotel from the front desk to the restaurant help is incredibly friendly and polite. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We found this hotel because my cousins live one town over from here, a five minute car ride. Our first stay was three years ago with my husband. I travelled this time only with my son while... More

On my arrival the receptionist was charming and informative, and made me feel welcome and at home. The clean room was big enough to accommodate a large comfortable bed, luggage shelf, desk, wardrobe and reading chair and, indeed, was more spacious than some rooms provided in corporate hotels. The shower was powerful and there was adequate space in the en... More

Stayed here for two night en route from the Dordogne back to the UK with our two children (4,8). Arrived early but were able to check in. The hotel was easy to find, with brown signs on virtually every approach road into Versailles. Reception staff exceptionally pleasant and helpful. Our room was basic but very clean. Two large double beds,... More

What a great place, only five minutes walk from the Palais and right in the heart of resteraunt land. Rooms clean and comfortable, WIFI not accesible in our rooms but not really bothered by that. Highly recommend for a stay in Verseilles.

We spent 5 nights at Le Cheval Rouge and had a wonderful time - its location is excellent, right in the heart of the Restaurant district and within easy walk of the Chateau. The management and staff are relaxed, helpful and polite. The room we had was recently renovated and was really comfortable and well equipped. Trains from Versailles to... More

Hello, Thank you so much for your lovely comment. We are indeed right on the main market place and very close to the Château (a bit less than a 10mn walk) and the main train stations are either a 10mn walk or a 5mn walk depending on where you are going into Paris.

This was a great stay in Versailles. Really quaint as it is a renovated Stable. Modern for knowing that it was a stable. Wifi is free and very fast, a must-have with today! Only about a 5 minute walk from the train stations, and a 5 minute walk from the Versailles Palace. About 6 cafes are along a strip by... More

After thoroughly studying hotel options in Versailles I chose Cheval Rouge. The hotel was clean and room refurbished and comfortable. I have trouble understanding some of the comments regarding this property. I have no complaints about the room nor the services. There are also many plus sides.

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night during our honeymoon. We knew we would just be passing through and did not want to splurge for a room here.

Hello, Thank you for your kind comment. I'm sorry to hear you encountered a problem with the taxi from Versailles Rive Gauche. It is an issue that we have complained about many times as it is simply because the taxi driver does not want to make such a short distance drive.
