Thank you so much to Camille &Tanya for making our experience in France so good. 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

Rooms are a unusually decorated and looking a little tired now. The rooms have safe boxes, but they are just left sitting loose on top of a wardrobe, so not so secure. Receptionist is shared between reception duties and restaurant duties in the adjacent restaurant so occasionally need to wait a few minutes or go looking for them. Breakfast is... More

The only thing this hotel has going for it is the location. The room was clean but very tired and old. Old we can do smelly we can not. The receptionist was , we'll not all there, when asked about parking she just shrugged her shoulders, when I asked which way was our room when we checked in she just... More
