Le Charleston was a gem, beautifully decorated in theme and very well thought out. It has been renovated fairly recently by the looks, all is immaculate. The buffet breakfast was good, expesso coffee if you ask for it, croissants to die for, plus the usual selections. Close to the town centre, a few hundred yards to the nearest tram stop... More

This hotel was recommended by Lonely Planet, which I had come to trust. Unfortunately, they got this one wrong. It is in a distant part of town, more than 25 minutes walk from the old town. The building is quite old, and one can hear water running in other rooms and footsteps traipsing the floor at all hours of the... More

Hello M. TUCKETT, I am very sorry that our hotel didn't fit your standards. I really apologize for the client upstairs who made a mess all night long that night. As you noticed, Le Charleston is the first rated hotel in Le Mans on Tripadvisor and on BOOKING.COM. The hotel has been entirely renovated 3 years ago with soundprrofing. Every... More

Stayed here last week while traveling in France. The huge advantage is that the hotel has a basement parking garage, book at the time you're booking your room. It is basic enough, but comfortable, immaculately clean, and well located. A 2 minute walk gets you to the tram stop, and 2 stops on is place de la republique in the... More

We stopped here for one night before catching the ferry home. I'm still one of those dinosaurs who doesn't have a Sat Nav in the car, so we had some difficulty finding the place. It is in a street just parallel to the North side of the station and if you are in the city centre, just follow the tram... More

Value for money hotel, near train station. Decor unique but tasteful. Very clean and modern rooms. Outdoor bar area with couches, very pleasant. A taxi is required to get to the old town but this means The Charleston is quiet. We did not reserve parking, which we would have liked to, but parking on the street was available and reasonably...

We had a small double for an overnight stay, it was clean and compact. Friendly staff on reception, secure parking available with internal access to Hotel. Walking distance to Old Town and the imposing city walls.

I liked everything about this hotel. The room was nicely decorated, quiet, and on a small side street close to the train station. The breakfast was excellent with delicious local specialties like sweet cake, and rillettes, with boiled eggs as well, and delicious coffee. The staff was friendly as well, and it seemed like a family run enterprise.

The hotel is clean, comfortable and the staff are very good. Ask for room away from road as it can get a little noisy if windows are open. Underground car park available albeit you can park in road outside the hotel. Some rooms have double plus a single bed and you could fit a cot as well. Breakfast was good... More

Located in a side street, 10/15 minutes walk from the Old Town and station. Doesn't look much from the outside but inside ... Wow great hotel, small but the way it has been fitted out inside makes it a very nice place to stay. Breakfast was very good, the staff are very helpful. Rooms are not large but very well... More

We unexpectedly found ourselves in La Mans and quickly looked at Trip Advisor for a good place to stay. Le Charleston was highly recommended, and after having stayed there, we concur. The rooms are small, but clean. The owner is very friendly and helpful. They have a garage for parking, and their daily rate is quite reasonable. Don't let the... More
