The location is a spitting distance from the palace - across the road! Forget the fancy places around here, this is an honest hotel with great service, good bed, good food. If you are here for a night, go here as it is near everything in town. Parking has a secret answer, ask the front desk :) I love it.

This is a lovely period building that has a small elevator to take you to different floor. The bathroom gave you a full 360 view of yourself, but the room was comfortable and big enough for three. Its location so close to the Chateau was fantastic. We were able to turn in our rental car after unloading our belongs, which... More

We had a room facing the courtyard. Great Room. High ceilings antique furnishings and quiet. Located across from Versailles, I ran the Gardens in the morning for free. Helluva experience. Eat at this Hotel you will not be disappointed. The staff, especially the check in person was terrific.

We booked online for five nights in this period building located just five minutes walk from the main gates of Versailles Chateau. It's a ten minute walk from Versailles Rive Gauche train station, which takes you into central Paris on line RER C in around 30 minutes. Our room (108) was located on the first floor towards the back of... More

We selected this hotel due its location (very near Versailles). Unfortunately, if you are driving, the fact that you have to park (and pay about 22E a night) at a garage about 20 mins. away, negated the closeness to Versailles. Our room was small, which would have been OK, except that it smelled a putrid smell that was especially strong... More

Stayed for 2 nights and first room over looked street and palace but musty damp smell meant we moved rooms. Courtyard was noisy though. Breakfast looked Parisian so we opted to go coffee shop and actually sit with the locals near market which was fantastic. My wife visited palace whilst I had business meeting she spent 5 hours and thought... More

The hotel was everything we had hoped for based on what Tripadvisor showed us before booking. It was literally a two minute walk from the foyer to the entrance to the Chateau - a level of convenience that suited us perfectly since we planned to explore the gardens and Trianons over two days. It is hard to fault the hotel:... More

The hotel was the perfect introduction to the opulence we witnessed at the chateau de Versailles the next day. The 18th century-like decor was splendid but not stuffy. Our room was tucked away at the end of the hallway; it was very quiet and roomy. We loved the furnishings and decor. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was small but... More

We checked in to the hotel after wandering around the chateau for several hours following an early morning drive from the ferry at Caen. We were exhausted but made very welcome by the young male receptionist who spoke perfect English. The family room was large and the bathroom well appointed. It overlooked the courtyard where the next door restaurant was.... More

This is the place where I learned that I cannot sleep well without a functional AC. The nice décor and soft bed did not balance out the fact that for some reason the AC was still turned off for the season. I slept much better in the next budget hotel with less comforts and a hard bed but that had... More
