We recently returned from a fabulous trip to France. 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. If you did not reserve directly through us or through our website we are unable to make any commercial gestures for our guests for commission reasons. Meaning the 1 night uncharged was exceptional. We will speak to the concerned receptionist you mention as our... More

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

Fairly standard basic French hotel verging on spartan but perfectly adequate for most i would say. The big plus is the location and safe and complimentary , locked car park in the hotel courtyard. This is a big plus . I originally booked for 3 nights on internet and decided whilst staying to add 2 more nights. This was more... More

We originally planned to stay in Paris and visit Versailles on a day trip, but we received no response from the several smaller hotels in Paris we contacted. This proved to be fortuitous, because we found the responsive and friendly Hotel du Cheval Rouge in Versailles, just blocks from the Palace and the train station. The hotel is located in... More

In all honesty CR is a very simple and basic hotel, it seems to be the ideal place for travelling sales persons who want to have a inexpensive bed in Versaille. That said although the rooms are simple, on the verge of basic, they are also clean most of them overlooking the quiet internal courtyard where you can park the... More

We recently stayed 2 nights and the hotel is in a great location for visiting the Palace and for shopping and restaurants.

This hotel is recommended for its location to visit the nearby Versailles palace within about 10-15 mins walk. The staff are really helpful and English speaking. The rooms are rather small which is typical for the area and the double bed was a basic and could not be described as large. I would pay the extra for twin room if... More
