“Nice hotel, small room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

This hotel is located conveniently close to the Versailles Rive Gauche station and the palace of Versailles. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and there is free internet. The rates are very reasonable. The main downside is that the rooms are very tiny, even by Paris standards. By this I mean perhaps 8-9 square meters including the bathroom. I stayed only one night and that was perfectly fine, but for a longer stay the room feels too cramped. The only reason why I give only three stars is really the room size, everything else is easily 4 stars. I would definitely use the hotel again for a short stay.

Sir,
Thank you for the nice comment you left. However you thought the room was small. It's true and we always tell the client before he makes his reservation. The rate of the room is of course proportionnal.
This room is only available for a one person request. Our other rooms are standard size or big considering our 2 stars category. Thanks a lot again for your comment and we hope to welcome you back soon!
Sincerely yours. Bruno ROSÉ

My family and I chose this Hotel because of its location being perfectly close to the Palace of Versailles. An easy 5 min walk away and makes the approach to the Palace more spectacular. We made the booking easily in the morning whilst driving through France and arrived in the evening. Parking was cheap for 24hrs as it was outside the Hotel. Room for 2 adults and one child, we had one double and one single and the ensuite was small but a wonderful shower was perfect as we only spent the one night. Comfortable, clean and the service from the moment we stepped inside to having breakfast was great. We loved this quaint Hotel and could not fault the staff or the Hotel. Another recommendation from our family.

Room Tip: Rooms are small but comfortable and clean. We did have a window but we were not there for the view...

We chose this hotel for its position being so close to the Palace of Versailles. It was literally a 5 minute walk away.
The room was small and had no view but it was clean and the ensuite was modern. I forgot how small a double bed is or I may have slept better,
The staff were all lovely and very helpful and the breakfast excellent. There was a great little gizmo for producing freshly squeezed orange juice in the breakfast room.
There is quite a lot of parking out front that is payable at meters. No charge at weekends or after 6 in the evenings.

The bedding is standard size and in some rooms queen size, but in any case new and of best quality.
Please feel welcome to come back anytime!

We have just stayed at Hotel Des Roys for two nights. We chose the hotel on the basis of the positive reviews on trip advisor and were not disappointed. Booking was straightforward this is not always the case as we are a famIly of 2 adults and 3 children and often hotels make this difficult. We had a double and a triple next to each other no drama.

The rooms were some of the cleanest we've ever stayed in, that includes hotels with a far higher star rating. Beds comfortable. Shower rooms small but they did the job.

Breakfast was extra but worth the money as was very generous, pastries, cake, cold meats, cheese, yoghurt etc and our son loved the orange juicing machine.

The staff were superb. Unobtrusive but tirelessly helpful. No exasperation shown when 15 year old rolled into breakfast 5 minutes after the end of service.

The location is great for exploring the Chateau. Just down the main avenue that leads to the Chateau and an easy walk from the station. Good for looking round Versailles itself too.

A very enjoyable stay. Would definitely recommend.

This hotel is accurately reviewed here on Trip Advisor. It is a small hotel within a few blocks of the palace. There are many restaurants and stores nearby. The parking is in a public lot right in front of the hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and courteous. The breakfast is somewhat expensive but we didn't want to walk around before our morning coffee. The rooms are small and the bathrooms are tiny. The bed was a bit hard, but ok. Overall, the hotel was a fine choice for a couple of nights.

Dear clients, You seem partially satisfied of your stay and we're sorry to hear that. However, our breakfast's price is justified by its quality and the great amount of fresh products. The space in Versailles is always tiny since they are almost only old buildings. Other hotels in Versailles are more expensive and don't have bigger rooms, wich are commonly decorated conversely of ours. They bedding is new and the taste of each person for more or less soft beds is hard to satis fied. We still hope you enjoyed stay in our hotel and that you'll come visit us again. Sincerely yours. Bruno ROSÉ.

Second stay in 6 months. Nice hotel with extremely courteous staff. Very clean and nice sized rooms. Really quiet and no need for any air con! Location great in tree-lined boulevard only 5 min walk from centre of the city. Only downside is there is no discernible hotel bar as such but ok bar just at the end of the road.

This hotel is in a perfect location for exploring the wonders of Versailles, being a stone's throw from the Palace itself. And whilst listed as a 2 Star hotel, it was clean, and it had everything one would need in a base hotel. Room was spacious enough, with a TV that worked. The bathroom was faultless, and the breakfast offered enough choice to set you on course for a day's exploration.
