“Excellent location; ticks most boxes”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

Deciding to spend a night in Chartres we noticed that only 2 of the listed hiotels had parking, so we chose this one & have no regrets. Our satnav took us straight to it & we received a good welcome. The room was adequate, certainly suitable for our needs, and the location is great. The centre is only a short walk across a square from the hotel. There was a market at the back of the square, which took up some time and plenty to explore. Indeed we both felt that we would like to return for 2 or 3 days to see mkore and would certainly go back to this hotel.
Strolling at night we heard a lot of noise & found a folk/rock group performing in what is presumably the main Market Hall, before a huge crowd. Super atmosphere with no sign of any aggro in the town. Walking back across the front of the Cathedral we wondered why theree was a crowd sitting on the grass round the place & discovered the superb son et lumiere show, well worth seeking out if you visit..
So, to sum up, Chartres is well worth a visit and this hotel is in a great location. Unpretentious ( almost classes as a business hotel) friendly and convenient. Recommended.

Room Tip: WE only chose a standard room 'cos we were passing through & there was little information ab...

Nice modern hotel with secure car park just 5 mins walk to the old town and the cathedral. Comfortable rooms, quiet at the back. Decent breakfast included in the room rate. Only a few minutes from the railway station too.

Je vous remercie d’avoir donné votre avis sur notre établissement. En effet il est important pour nous que nos clients apprécient leur séjour et il est très gratifiant qu’ils prennent le temps de l’écrire. Je suis heureuse que votre séjour vous ait donné satisfaction. Comme vous l’écrivez, nous sommes idéalement situés à 200 m de la cathédrale et à 200 mètres de la gare et de plus nous possédons un parking privé fermé de 40 places. Le petit déjeuner qui est servi sous forme de buffet avec un large choix de produits frais est effectivement inclus dans certaines offres. Vous aviez choisi une chambre côté jardin c’est effectivement très calme, mais les chambres côté rue sont très bien insonorisées, enfin les chambres exécutive vous permettent de bénéficier d’une vue imprenable sur la cathédrale.
J’espère avoir le plaisir de vous accueillir à nouveau lors d’un prochain séjour
Bien cordialement

We were just in from Paris headed and straight to this beautiful town. The hotel is round the corner from the cathedral and with parking right behind - we were most satisfied. Rooms pleasant. Very nice staff. Breakfast a bit expensive but also excellent.

We had a pleasant two night stay here while visiting Chartres. The hotel is very close to the train station and to the cathedral. Friendly, welcoming front desk staff and a buffet breakfast with a good selection of items from which to choose. Easy walking distance to old town Chartres and to the shops.

Hotel reasonably easy to find without sat nav. Parking convenient and easy to access. Receptionist was friendly and helpful.
However the superior room was rather dingy and tired and certainly could be judged as superior.
The beds were very uncomfortable and the bed linen rather tired and certainly needed updating.
As a result we did not stay for breakfast and would not return to the hotel again.

Je vous remercie d’avoir pris le temps de donner votre avis sur notre établissement.
Je suis heureuse de constater que vous avez trouvé l’hôtel facilement et que notre parking privé vous ait permis de stationner facilement et en toute sécurité.
Je transmets vos commentaires positifs concernant le personnel à toute mon équipe qui a à cœur de rendre le séjour de nos clients le plus agréable possible.
Je suis navrée que la prestation en chambre n’ait pas été à la hauteur de vos attentes, toutefois tout notre linge est en location et par conséquent renouvelé très régulièrement, je m’étonne donc que vous l’ayez trouvé défraichie.

It is a three star hotel and perhaps a bit more.
I would not hesitate to stay here again. Like many French hotels, you may be hard pressed to note the hotel and its front entrance, and once that is done, find a place to park to check in. Your accurate GPS entry will help immeasurably. Once you're registered you can get the optional parking (worth it). The entrance to the parking lot is to the right of the front entrance and protected by a gate. According to Google maps, it's an 8 minute walk to the cathedral, and a very pleasant walk at that. The breakfast is good and worth the charge. During our stay, all the receptionists were fluent in English, very polite and efficient.

IF you order a glass of wine while close by the cathedral, from at least one of the cafes facing the side of the cathedral, you may be served cheap, nasty "tourist" wine. I'm not sure how to combat this other than just sending it back. Perhaps researching the cafes on Trip A, on your phone, once you decide on your choice of a cafe.

The outside a gray and has windows like an old computer punch card. The inside is wonderful with large fireplaces and a welcoming and very helpful staff. They helped me find a charger for my camera batteries after I discovered I'd forgot to bring mine. The room was spacious and had an excellent shower. The views out the window at Chartres Cathedral were spectacular. We got to see the evening light show without leaving our room. Watching the sunrise over the cathedral from the room was excellent as well. A really great place.
