Reviewed June 25, 2009

This is a very old hotel & everything is old . The bed was well worn , the old lady on reception was not the happiest soul on earth . Location very good & price ok .
Do not go to the restaurant Chez Cesar , worst restaurant in our month in France . Service was terrible , didn;t like the idea that i gave my partner some of my desert .Looked like they couldn't wait to get rid of us .

We found this hotel in our "Let's Go" travel book and we should've turned around once we walked in, but we were tired from traveling and decided to stay.

The place is exactly what it says...a two star hotel. Nothing fancy--a bed and a shower. The room wasn't the cleanest, but it was within walking distance from the train station and the Chateau. That was about the only thing going for it.

And as you can tell from the pictures...everything in the room was PINK!

We'll always remember this hotel for one reason--the shutters. We ended up oversleeping...almost past check out (at 11am) because we didn't realize what time it was. Someone had closed the shutters on outside of the window and we were just expecting to wake up with the sun. :) Bad idea. Fun memory, but still a scary place.

hi,

i'm from chicago, IL, i stayed in this hotel once a year. I know the paris area pretty well, and i can say that you will not find better place for this price. I you're wanna stay in paris, it will cost you twice the price, so go to versailles, it s actually cheaper and the city is nice. This hotel is 7mn walk from the palace and 5 mn walk from the train station which links the heart of paris within 30mn
It is also located in the historic district of the city.
The Royal hotel is a family hotel, it has 40 rooms and an elevator since 2003, the rooms are not very large but they are pretty and clean. The district is safe and non noisy. Moreover you ll find good restaurants within 5 mn.
Everybody is nice, you ll feel like home
If you have only 70 dollars to spend per night, go there.

You'll find some pics in the website : ----

I have stayed at this hotel once a year for the past five years. The management are always friendly, and the rooms have always been neat and clean. The rooms are not extreamly large, but they will do just fine for most travelers. If you are looking for a good bargan, I suggest you use this hotel. The location is great. You are a ten minute walk at best to the Palace. Good resturants are close. Unless you are expecting the RITZ, you will not be unhappy.
