We checked in to the hotel after wandering around the chateau for several hours following an early morning drive from the ferry at Caen. We were exhausted but made very welcome by the young male receptionist who spoke perfect English. The family room was large and the bathroom well appointed. It overlooked the courtyard where the next door restaurant was.... More

This is the place where I learned that I cannot sleep well without a functional AC. The nice décor and soft bed did not balance out the fact that for some reason the AC was still turned off for the season. I slept much better in the next budget hotel with less comforts and a hard bed but that had... More

These girls are the receptionists who made us feel so welcome and each went out of their way to be helpful and give advice from booking taxi's to printing off our tickets to the Chateau and in Tania's case, trying to fix the plumbing in...

This hotel enjoys the best location practically at the door of the Palace. After tramping all over that huge area having the hotel so close is a real plus! We were greeted with a wonderful smile and help with confirming our car reservation. The hotel is very pretty. The room was clean, and pretty. The bathroom nicely decorated and the... More

I don't know where to start here. The building is beautiful. It is a 17th century hotel particuliare built by one of Louis XIV's ministers. It still has much of the original woodwork and moulding. The room I stayed in was very tastefully decorated, good sheets, comfortable and good price considering it is Versailles and considering the location, literally steps... More

We were really pleased with our choice of Hotel de France. Our visit was specifically to visit the Palace of Versailles, and you really can not get any closer, it is on the first street back from the palace gates. Also as we visited in August, we were able to park our car on the street at the front of... More

Having passed through France several times in the past few years and having stayed in chain hotels we made a decision to Visit the Paris Motor Show and stay at a traditional hotel just outside Paris. The Hotel De France, right opposite the Palace of Versailles seemed just the place, and so it turned out to be....right in every way.... More

I have stayed a couple of times overnight in the Hotel de France when the standard business hotels close to my firm’s Velizy office have been fully booked. As many others have mentioned the key selling points are its superb location on a cobbled street opposite the main entrance to the Palace of Versailles and the fact that you stay... More
