4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for two nights whilst looking for accommodation for our son in his teaching year abroad (in Le Mans). It's very well located - only about 5 mins walk from the station and 10/15 mins from the old town (which is a gem!). The staff are very helpful and friendly, the hotel is very clean and the continental... More

Bathroom ok for very small people. Staff were friendly and Breakfast ok apart from the tinned fruit if you cant do fresh don't do it at... More

Sylvain M, Propriétaire at Hotel Le Charleston, responded to this review

Hello Mme G. I'm sorry if Le Charleston didn't fit your standards. I just wanted to remind you that you had the room you booked for: "A small double room". We do have larger rooms and we call them "Standard double rooms" and they cost only 6€ more. Best regards, Sylvain MILLON More

Le Charlestone is quite a sweet little hotel though felt more like a B&B. The room was small but fine for just a night, lovely big window and a fan in the room which was 100% necessary as Le Mans was so hot on the day we visited. Location is good in that it is close to the station however... More

We stayed at Le Charleston as an overnight stop on the way back to Calais. It is a small quirky hotel. The receptionist was very friendly and efficient. We had two twin rooms which were in fact a double bed and a single bed. The rooms are very clean. The breakfast was great. It is also a short walk from... More

Small room, but pleasant, overlooking a small courtyard. Near to town, within 10 mins walk to the old town. Very good breakfast, parked right outside, which was very convenient. Overall a nice place to stay

Was looking for a stop off on way North to ferry and this rated well on Trip Advisor, good rate, although bumped up by car park charge and breakfast but still very reasonable. Room clean and well appointed and as rest of hotel. Good staff and service. Been said in other reviews that car park is small and no good... More

Small room but good hotel. Nice and clean. Lovely breakfast. No bar but they will bring you a beer when you are thirsty and exhausted after long drive through France :) Close to supermarket for dinner as we arrived late.

The Hotel Le Charleston is in walking distance from the railway station in Le Mans. Very pleasant hotel and scrupulously clean. The only problem we encountered was that although there was a lift, our room was between floors, so it was necessary to lug our suitcases up the stairs. Breakfast was good. The hotel is great value for money.

Tried this because of the good reviews but ended up paying a bit more than we expected as we had the underground garage, the twin beds and the nice breakfast added to our bill. Within walking distance to the center it is and close to the Grand Central TGV station. Could do a little better on the sound insulation though,... More

I stayed in this hotel with my two teenage sons whilst driving south through France. It was very clean, efficient and friendly place - 3 small single rooms about 180 Euros including breakfast - we stayed again on the way back two weeks later and got a single room (double plus single bed) for about 85 Euros plus breakfast @...
