    A little noisy during the day but understanable as it is located just a 12 minute walk away from chateau de Versailles. The creme de la crème of Versailles! The room could benefit from black out curtains due to light creeping in but this shouldn't impact much upon a good night as the bed is fantastic.

    Fantastic bed for the night..

    No fancy details, but the beds were firm and comfortable, the shower was good. Everything was clean, and staff pleasant. Very basic breakfast, but that suited us. Perfect position. Five minutes' walk from Rive gauche station and ten minutes' to the chateau. Restaurants round about and boulangerie next door.

    It’s just great. And refreshingly unpretentious.

    This is a family owned hotel and harks back to the days of plum and avocado coloured baths etc. And for this, so rare to see nowadays, the hotel has extra charm. I would rather stay here than in a bland blob. It is in a great location, and there is a de luxe (you pay for this luxury for your car) car park very nearby.

    The shower water takes a quite long time to heat up. The room was a bit cold, especially since the window was not correctly closed when I arrived.

    Very comfortable bed and cozy room.

    The breakfast selection could be improved and there was insufficient food.

    Older style hotel but very comfortable and clean. Great location with the palace and restaurants an easy walk away.

    Breakfast was a disgrace: cheap cheese in mega pack just left on the counter, no bread at 9 am, juice dispenser and coffee machine out of order. WC in the basement can be used as a set for a horror movie film.

    The staff was very friendly and eager to please.

    The shower was very small and the stick fixing the shower fall and heart me on the foot. We also had one mosquito in the room - protection for insects will be a good idea!

    The location very close to congress center and palace. It was easy to find and had many possibilities of food shops and restaurants around. It was clean and with enough space for a studio. The personal was friendly.

    The location is fine, but all other things go below average. Very small room with old facilities. Staffs are not enthusiastic and provide little suggestion for travelers. I would not recommend such a hotel for this price.

    The interior was very dated and tired. The bed was a bit small for two people. Breakfast was very basic and didn't offer any cheese or meat platters normally found for buffet style breakfast. Someone was smoking from time to time in the lobby even though its prohibited to smoke inside. Internet only functioned in the lobby.

    The gentlemen at front desk was very helpful and location to shops, restaurants and Versailles was great!

    Mattress was a bit sunken in at the center...other than that it's a good, quiet and safe place to stay.

    A simple and clean hotel. Within a walking distant from the train station. There's grocery shop across the street... And a very lovely dessert n sandwich shop Boulanger. PAtissier along the building. Great location to walk in Versailles.

    No onsite parking, and nearest parking lot was a 5 minute walk. The rooms were a little outdated.

    The distance from the hotel to the Palace of Versailles and the Cathedral were within 15 minutes walking distance.

    The Family Room (#27) has a double and 2 singles, 1 toilet, 2 showers and 3 sinks. This place is very clean, the beds are comfy (though not Sheraton quality), it is quiet, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Also, great location as it is a short walk to train stations and the Palace. And perfectly priced. What more could you want?
