We stayed here last night as a stop over from the South of France to Calais. I cannot fault one thing here. Our group had a booking of two rooms for 5 persons. The rooms were clean, beautifully decorated and spacious enough for a short stay. All staff spoke great English and Francoise on reception was very helpful with directions.... More

Hotel Le Charleston is a wonderful boutique hotel ideally placed to explore Le Mans. It is located in a quiet side road just a few minutes walk from the train station and tram stop and maybe 20 minutes from the old town. The hotel has secure underground parking (for a small extra fee) and although the entrance is narrow and... More

Downsides - very small car park with no lift and narrow staircase, limited breakfast buffet and wifi signal not too good I would... More

Lovely small hotel. 10-15mins walk away from the old part of town. Lovely big triple room. Very comfortable bed. Great to have tea and coffee making facilities in room. Carpark was very narrow to get in and out of but its under the hotel and secure.

I stayed just one night in this hotel. It was clean and comfortable and for an extra 7 Euros I was able to park my car in the secure garage. Close to the centre of Le Mans. I would recommend this hotel as a good place to stay.

Superb hotel, 20 minutes walk to the medieval part of the town where La Nuit des Chimeres is displayed during July to August, an experience not to be missed. Excellent breakfast and secure parking for a small fee

Excellent small hotel..quiet comfortable well appointed rooms (yes and tea and coffee making facilities !!!), pleasant staff, wonderful breakfast and close to railway station (hire car agencies nearby too) which is a blessing after 24 hours from Australia and then a train trip to Le Mans! Not many "family friendly" restaurants nearby (the area is a slightly tired one near... More

We stayed at the hotel for 4nights, as we went to the 24 hour Classic LeMans. Underground parking which is fabulous as the car was not needed until the return journey. It was really hot on the Friday and Saturday, so the rooms were hot, but we had a fan,. The hotel is well placed for all the attractions, walking,... More

We travelled from the Pyrenees to La Mans on our way to Calais. Booked this Hotel on the internet, read the reviews, and am pleased to say my fellow reviewers were spot on. This hotel was charming. The rooms were spotless, very modern, and supplied tea & coffee something which you rarely get in France. The staff were extremely helpful.... More

Stayed at the Charleston last saturday, very welcoming & helpful owner, covered underground secure parking. Very well appointed rooms, good breakfast area. No restaurant but plenty of choice within a ten minute stroll through the mainly pedestrianised streets, or you can use the frequent tram.
