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

Stayed one night in a family room - clean and comfy but no air con. Is only 15 minutes walk into town - or the tram stop is very close. The staff were very helpful and friendly. 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
