    The breakfast was unexciting, just one kind of meat, no egg. (I was there in November, therefore it might different in other time of the year.) The room was quite cold, fortunatelly, there was additional blanket in the room.

    It is close to the centre. The bus stop is right in front of the hotel. The staff is nice and helpful.

    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 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!

    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?
