“Perfect location. Fantastic hostess.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

When we arrived early in the morning after our flight from Toronto, our room wasn't yet ready. The woman who appears to be the hardest working person in France, was very kind and offered to let us use the cave if we wanted to rest for a while. Instead, we went out for a stroll. When we got to our room we were delighted with the view. Our windows look right out onto the cathedral which is, literally, a stone's throw away. We stayed in Louis, which has a nice sitting area and then a separate bedroom. The ONLY recommendation I could make is the addition of some draws or shelves for our belongings. I ended up using the cupboard under the kitchen sink. (There's a hot plate, sink and fridge.) Our hostess has been wonderful and helpful beyond words. Best of all, she hears us struggling with our French and she tries to teach us the words. She speaks English so it would be much easier for her to just switch over, but she wants to help us improve our skills. I would recommend this hotel for anyone who wants to visit the Cathedral or use Chartres as a base for seeing the chateaux in the Loire Valley. We took a terrific day trip to Amboise and Chenenceau, so they're both within easy driving distance.

Room Tip: Our room, Louis, had a sitting room that looked out onto the Cathedral and a bedroom that looked ont...

My wife and I stayed at Le Parvis on the first night of our motorcycle touring holiday in France during August 2012. The hotel is perfectly situated directly opposite the cathedral in the centre of Chartres. A perfect little hotel. The staff were helpful and friendly and the breakfast was super. We had the Henry IV room, a generous size, very comfortable and with a view of the Cathedral. The old cellars make for a super atmosphere to enjoy a quiet drink or one of the well-attended live Jazz nights. There is no parking but the hotel offers a free pass to guests to use a secure underground car park within easy walking distance. We will be putting Le Parvis on our list of favourite stops in France and hope to visit again sometime.

Literally booked on iphone from the train station....awesome little place, very fun room - large- round bed (the penelope room) open the 'secret door' and you're at the steps of the cathedral. Room is funky mix of mod and redone with blk/gray/silver scheme and the round bed makes is just more fun. Excellent location, staff more than friendly- perfect place to be in the city and see the sights...bed comfy, plenty of room...would highly recommend.

Room Tip: ask for cathedral view or Penelope room.

We stayed here for one night and were not disappointed. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Parking in the area can be a challenge, but we were sent instructions from the hotel beforehand which made unloading our luggage really easy. They also provided a parking voucher to the nearby secure car park. The hotel is situated opposite the cathedral, which means fantastic views from some of the rooms. The rooms are huge, modern and clean and include mini bar. We had a tasty dinner in the restaurant which was reasonably priced, and breakfast the next morning (included in the cost of the room) was also good. Would highly recommend.

We were impressed that detailed access information was emailed to us a few weeks before our stay to ensure we could find our way through the labyrinth of narrow streets easily. Le Parvis is superbly situated with very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was simply beautiful. Wish we could have been there for one of their jazz nights.

We drove straight from CDG to Le Parvis in Chartres for our first night in France. Despite being very tired, we found a great restaurant for dinner and stayed up late enough to see the lights on the Chartres Cathedral. Definitely a must see!

Room Tip: We had the charming attic room. The bathroom was huge and we had a view of the cathedral.

Le Parvis is a charming place to stay in beautiful Chartres. The location is literally across the street from the cathedral. The proprietor, Francois, was just as charming and very accommodating--went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. Thank you for a wonderful time! Wish we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: We stayed in the room on the top floor--perfect for a couple looking for a romantic getaway!
