“fine hotel in perfect location”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

We recently stayed for three days at this hotel. Everything about it is to be commended. It is in a very convenient location, being in easy walking distance of both the railway station and the centre. The welcome from the receptionist was excellent; the room was very spacious and well-equipped; breakfasts were very good, with a wide range of food on offer. It's also very reasonably priced.

we have stayed at this place five or six times now on our north or south journeys through France. We return because they look after us well and are placed right in the town centre.
no parking is awkward, last visit there were a couple of issues with cleaning and food for breakfast but they are usuallly well up to standard here and very helpful people.

merci d'avoir pris le temps de "poster" un commentaire sur notre établissement.
Je suis navrée de savoir que vous avez rencontré un problème de nourriture, notre buffet de petit déjeuner étant toujours bien achalandé, il aurait été interressant de nous dire sur place ce qui ne vous convenait pas afin de corriger l'erreur aussi rapidement que possible.
En espérant pouvoir en parler directement avec vous lors d'un prochain séjour.
Bien à vous

Very relaxing stay in a huge room. The staff were attentive. All was clean and quite. We all slept well ready for the next stage of the journey. Walking around the cathedral area is always a pleasure too.

The Mercure hotel was nice, especially after the bad room we had in the previous stop on our trip. It does have a bizarre entrance, with no place to stop to load/unload luggage. I drove around the block while my wife went in, to inquire about where to unload. We were expected to stop in the street, blocking traffic at rush hour, while unloading. So we stopped just long enough to yank out two suitcases and whatever could be grabbed quickly, and I took the car to nearby garage and carried the rest of the stuff to the room.

The only negative about the room was that no washcloths were provided. The fellow at front desk, who spoke good English, did not understand what I meant by washcloths or facecloths, but he provided two additional small towels, which we used as very large washcloths. For next trip to Europe, we have added washcloths to our packing list!

I was able to use the hotel computer (interesting for a PC expert to use an Apple with French keyboard) to check in at Air France, and with assistance from non-English speaking front desk staffer, print boarding passes (I didn’t know word for “Print” in French and didn't have time to look it up). In the morning, we rolled our suitcases to the garage to avoid the hassles of blocking traffic again during morning rush hour.

We would recommend this hotel for any stay in Chartres.

Je prend note de votre commentaire et tiens à y apporter quelques éléments de réponse.
En effet nous n'avons malheureusement pas de "dépose minute" devant notre hotel, celui ci nous ayant été refusé par la mairie. Cependant nous accordons à nos clients ayant beaucoup de bagages d'entrer dans notre cour le temps de déposer les valises, ensuite il faut rejoindre le parking "coeur de ville" situé juste en face du MERCURE et prendre la sortie piétons "place des épars" et de cette façon vous vous retrouvez juste en face du MERCURE CHARTRES CATHEDRALE.
D'autre part dans les salles de bains, nous mettons à disposition de nos clients deux serviettes de toilette ainsi que deux draps de bain et en effet pas de gant!! En France les gants de toilette doivent etre ceux des clients.
Espérant avoir donné les explications nécessaires pour nos futurs clients.
Bien à vous

Stayed here for a night when travelling back to the UK from Carcassonne.
The hotel has no car park and you have to use the nearby council underground one at Place des Epars.
The hotel is a couple of years old and we loved the décor which is inspired by the Cathedral's stained glass.
The room was clean and a good size with a very comfortable bed.
Breakfast was plentiful and we never felt rushed.
We spent the evening walking around the Cathedral and really enjoyed the "Fete De La Lumiere".
Our only criticism is that we could not open our bedroom window.
