We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Chosen for proximity to the Palace of Versailles which was a 15 minute walk away. Secure car parking. Room small and a bit outdated but location made up for this. Staff on reception very friendly and helpful. Lots of restaurants to choose from around a market square just outside hotel. Nice walk...

This is a great little hotel in the middle of Versailles. Small rooms, but all clean and well equipped, and in any case you come to this hotel from which to explore one of France's most iconic towns and of course the Chateau de Versailles - which is a 5 minute walk away. The hotel has a car park, and... More

This hotel is in a brilliant location. The reception staff friendly and helpful. The room had lovely voiles and curtains and the bed was comfy with lovely crisp sheets, however, the carpets need replacing and the bathroom was poor. The shower cubicle was mouldy round the door frame and needed re siliconing. As for the towels they were very poor,... More

We were staying 2 nights here to visit Paris and Versailles On arrival we were greeted by 2 rooms which were more like a poor university hall of residence. Pubic hair in the bath incredibly shabby and one room smelled terrible. We went out! Later we asked to change rooms. The... More

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to comment. However, we are puzzled by your review.

Location is great. From the old-stable market, you enter the hotel vicinity like as an extension of the market. Parking is secured with barrier and free within the hotel sizable plaza. Rooms are spread-out in 2 buildings thus making it like you are in a compound. Quiet and restful though. Interior decors needs updating. Seems real good times of past... More
