Hotel du Cheval Rouge
Ranked #15 of 26 Hotels in Versailles
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Staff, secure free parking, and location are the assets of this hotel adjacent to the Grande Marche of Versailles. We lucked out in Room 138 in that it was for three and we were only two so it was relatively spacious and clean! There is a tiny garden in the parking lot that has seating. Versailles Palace is within walking distance, as are numerous restaurants. And the market is fun to wander. Negatives are the tiny shower and accompanying toiletries. The value for a hotel in the heart of Versailles is unbeatable at Cheval Rouge!

Very friendly hotel situated close to cafes and bars. Staff very helpful and friendly. Accomodation although basic was very comfortable and clean and our bikes were safely stored in the courtyard quadrangle. Ideal for weary cyclists who want to just eat and sleep in comfort

The hotel is located in the corner of a square with good bars and restaurants. The staff of the hotel are helpful and efficient and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Highly recommended for a brief stay in Versailles.

Great location, in a quiet square with several bars and restaurants on the doorstep.
Receptionist was extremely helpful.
Rooms spacious and clean.
Comfortable bed. Breakfast very nice with coffee, juice and deliciously fresh bread and croissants.
Highly recommend.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed equal, room 109 was great.

We booked this hotel last minute with nowhere else to stay. It's good value for a two star and in an excellent location in the local market place.

Rooms are clean but very small, if you like your bedroom dark this isn't the place for you, it has paper thin curtains that let all the light in at 5am. The bed is also very hard, a bit like sleeping on a shelf...

The one big problem we had is that I asked one receptionist if we could leave our car in the car park the following night as we were getting the train to Paris. She said yes but when we tried to reconfirm it in the morning it was a resounding no. This threw our plans in to disarray so some consistency would have been nice or a note left in reception.

Overall, if you are on a budget it is a great place to stay with great local nightlife in the square.

The room was small but freshly painted, clean and comfortable. As it looked onto the internal square it was also very quiet. Extraordinarily good value for an overnight stop, and highly recommended as such. 10 min walk to the Palace and lots of restaurants on the doorstep.

Just spent 3 nights here and it's been great. Hotel is only a few minutes walk to the palace and is located on the corner of a lively square. Yet once in your room off the courtyard you hear birds singing and not the traffic! And it has free, private parking! So if you are coming to Versailles this is a great, good value hotel
