I have stayed here before and was enthralled with the room, and the room service. The desk staff were just as great as last time, but I booked a mid-rate room better than the last time and was given a room whose windows opened on to a walkway with cigarette butts on it. The room was so hot that we... More

This hotel is well situated in the centre of Chartres just a short walk from the Cathedral. The complex road layout of the Place des Epars nearly blew our GPS SatNav off the map, but once you feel happy about crossing a bus lane and dodging into the '5 minute' drop-off it's easy to pop in to Reception ready for...

Comfortable hotel with a great location if you are visiting Chartres to see the cathedral. We could see it from our window which overlooked a Sunday flea market. Downtown has a lot of empty store fronts so we ate our meals at the hotel for convenience. Service and quality of the food was good but not the best in France.... More

The hotel is comfortable with good sized rooms with all the usual facilities. Valet parking was swiftly and efficiently dealt with. Location is very convenient for the Cathedral and other key sights. Very good restaurant. Altogether a strong recommendation.

We arrived in France late Saturday morning, and drove directly from CDG to Le Grand Monarque in Chartres. Having only read a few reviews, we were not sure what to expect, but we delighted with our hotel. Chartres is a beautiful city, and Le Grand Monarque is perfectly situated. The hotel is located at the heart of Chartres and only... More

Chartres is an excellent point at which to stop over if travelling from Britain further south into Europe and this hotel makes the stopover utterly worthwhile! They valet park for you since the carpark is a short step from the hotel. The restaurant is Michelin starred, but if you need somewhere a little more modest, you are simply a road... More

If you are passing North/South and looking for a stopover in this neck of the woods, Chartres ticks a lot of boxes. The Cathedral is stunning and over the summer months they have a (free) nightly lightshow working on a loop around the key historical sights.

The room was comfortable and well appointed. All the rooms have been modernized although the hotel itself has a traditional layout. It is deservedly one of the top hotels in Chartes.
