“Don't judge a book by it's cover...”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Great value hotel in (practically) Versaille. It's a 10 minute drive (not really walkable but it could be done) to the Palace or the centre of town, where you can catch the train into the heart of Paris (25 mins) - Saint Cyr l'Ecole is a little hamlet on the oustskirts of Versailles and is really easy to get to from the ring road - we came up from the South and staying here meant we avoided the worst Paris roads and could get easily back on the motorway to continue up to Calais.

It's fair to say the hotel looks old and tired, and not very appealing from the outside, but inside is fine. Rooms were nice and clean, bathrooms good, staff extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast - not worth the money I'd say, there are better and cheaper options in Versailles.

It was hot when we visited and with no air con the windows had to be open, which meant the noisy restaurant/bar next door could be heard until 2 am! That's the only thing that would make me think twice about staying here again, but really for the price it would be hard to find a better deal in a better location.

Parking is free and on site but is limited, so may be a bit of a squeeze. Remember, Versailles Palace is closed on Monday, which means Tuesdays are extremely busy! At least staying here means you can be there for 8.30am to beat the queues, which is what we did. Oh, and book your tickets online (very important) - you can print them off for free on the computer in the hotel. WiFi is also free, but not very fast.

Overall, I'd recommend this budget hotel.

This hotel isn't fancy and is located across the street from the busy local airport but because the planes are so small we never heard them. Versailles is literally a five minute drive down the street. The staff was super friendly. The room was small but well apportioned with mirrors making the room seem much larger than it actually was. The big surprise was the bathroom. It looked a bit dated but had a small but amazing shower with plenty of hot water and strong water pressure.

An older style of hotel, but clean and spacious, good value for the 55euro we paid. Only 10 minutes from Versailles. Not much around the hotel but walked to a new Chinese buffet up the road that had great food. Didn't do breakfast. Operators were very obliging. We were able to skirt around Paris and avoid the traffic to make our way north. Would stay again

Room Tip: Book in the night before and get to Versailles at opening, the crowds can be horrendous, also pre pu...

Hello,
We were looking for a cheap hotel around Versailles, for 2 nights, and we found this one.
The price is 55 euros / night for a room with double bed.
The price is very good for this location, but the quality is not really 3 stars.
The room is quite good and specious, it has a fridge and we have a bathroom with shower.
The price for drinks is 2 euros / Coca Cola or water.
In the bathroom there are some small flies, which shows that it is not very clean ... but there are just details. It is up to the guest to see if he is or not affected by that.

Room Tip: Check the room before moving in. Especially check if it is clean and if the air is breathable. Chec...

This hotel is tired and needs refurbishment. The hotel is comfortable enough but gave me the impression that it is need of updating. My wife and I stayed for one night to enable us to visit the Palace at Versailles. The hotel is a short 10 minute drive away. The location is therefore very convenient. The breakfast is adequate and reasonably priced.

Room Tip: We had a room at the rear of the hotel, which was quiet.

This is a good hotel for visiting Versailles and Paris if you don't want to be in the city. St Cyr isn't the most dynamic area but it's 5 minutes by car from the palace of Versailles and has a train station that gets you into the heart of Paris in half an hour. The price of a night's stay is much cheaper than being in Paris itself. The hotel itself is good and clean. There is a breakfast room but no evening restaurant, but being situated near Versailles there are plenty of outside eating choices. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The only downside for us was that we were there when the daytime temperature was well above thirty degrees and the lack of air conditioning in the rooms was a bit of an issue at night. All in all it's a decent place to stay.

I must say this was rather a surprise, It was much more comfortable than I expected, breakfast was very good, Room was clean. staff very calm, helpful, and courteous, nothing seemed too much trouble. Hotel had off street parking which was another plus, although this was limited. Very good location for exploring the Palace of Versailles and Paris, would definitely stay here again.
