My colleague and I were delighted by our brief experience in this modest hotel. Our room, with two beds, actually featured each bed in an alcove, so, while European-style small, we each had sufficient space to ourselves. Everything was clean and well maintained, and the breakfast was ample, easily pleased a variety of palates, and served in comfortable environs.

Stayed here July 2014 driving south. Chose it based on trip advisor ratings and was not disappointed. Very friendly staff, nice clean rooms with good facilities. Open courtyard area in centre with comfortable areas to sit. Breakfast extensive choices and very good. In a quiter area of town near railway station which is clean and safe. Easy walking to centre... More

We'd booked another hotel, and having driven around the city for over an hour, we gave up and pulled up outside this hotel to see if they had a room for the night. The receptionist was very helpful and spoke good English. He quickly booked us in and helped me to park the car - an exciting adventure in itself!... More

This place was a super help to me arriving late, the room was great, and the buffet breakfast was quality. My Newhaven-Dieppe ferry was 5 hours late, so after a 3 hour drive to Le Mans I was going to be arriving at 1130pm at the earliest. I emailed the hotel from the ferry, and over email arranged access codes... More

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
