The hotel was everything we had hoped for based on what Tripadvisor showed us before booking. It was literally a two minute walk from the foyer to the entrance to the Chateau - a level of convenience that suited us perfectly since we planned to explore the gardens and Trianons over two days. It is hard to fault the hotel:... More

The hotel was the perfect introduction to the opulence we witnessed at the chateau de Versailles the next day. The 18th century-like decor was splendid but not stuffy. Our room was tucked away at the end of the hallway; it was very quiet and roomy. We loved the furnishings and decor. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was small but... More

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

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
