This gorgeous little boutique hotel was simply superb. The modern decor plus friendly staff helped make our short stay even more enjoyable. The buffet continental breakfast for €9 was outstanding with amazing choice and full of quality.

From the warm welcome, assistance with parking our large car in the private car park, to the quality of the room and service at breakfast we cannot fault our experience. The room was compact but thankfully the bed was large and that's all that matters, it was very comfortable too. The bathroom was 5 star, the shower excellent, lighting levels... More

After staying there for a night we were so impressed we desided if we ever come back to Le Mans that is the place to stay! Staff was helpful and since we are travelling by car the garage was a great thing, you also can come and go as you please with the access code to the garage which was... More

Small, yet perfectly formed! Really don't know how this hotel only has two stars. Well located for the centre of Le Mans, which is a short walk away. Spotlessly clean, friendy staff, and nicely decorated and great showers! If I was to get picky, my only complaint was the terrible cooked from frozen bread they had at breakfast. I really... More

We stopped off at Le Charleston in Le Mans on our way travelling through France. We chose the hotel because of other reviews on Trip Advisor and because there was secure parking and it was pet friendly for our dog travelling with us. It lived up to our expectations perfectly. Unlike a previous reviewer who can't have read her reservation... More

I made a late reservation online around 9:30 p.m., there was no mention of a "closing time" for the front desk, and my reservation was supposedly guaranteed. I arrived shortly after 10 p.m. to find the lobby dark, the door locked tight, and a "hotel complet" (i.e. no vacancy) sign in the front window where they post their rates. And... More

Hello M. SYGIEL, A room was booked for you and we tried to phone you to give you the details to get inside. There is an emergency phone number outside. If you had called us, we could have given you the code for the front door. Your key was waiting for you at the reception. I'm really sorry you didn't... More

Excellent hotel boutique, the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was very good and had a verity of food. Bedrooms and bathrooms spotless and a beautiful patio. Centrally located just 10 minute walk to the old neighborhood. Loved it!

French tourist board only give this hotel 2 stars, but in my opinion it should be 3 or more! Very helpful and friendly staff. A short walk from the town centre and handy for the old quarter where there are many nice cafes. Not available for the Le Mans 'Season' as the racing teams block book years in advance -... More

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
