Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 September 2013

Stayed here for almost a week in late-August to attend a training program held nearby. Des Roys is not betraying all the positive comments in tripadvisor, and in fact, it even be exceeding them. Extremely helpful and friendly hotel staff (a real treasure in France!), clean rooms, good location on a bustling and safe Versailles avenue, and walking distance to RER... Leaves little else to desire for. And highly recommended.

We surely hope the quality of our service is representative of our country's "savoir vivre". Anyway, we truly thank you for your appreciation of our work. Best Regards. Bruno ROSÉ.

A short walk from Versailles Rive Gauche station and virtually on the doorstep of the palace make this a great base. Allows you to get up and be early through the door for your Versailles visit, and not have far to go at the end of the day when you have walked for miles. Good old fashioned French decor, but clean, comfortable and friendly. Versailles is a lovely town with wide avenues and lots of restaurants. Very good continental breakfast - fresh orange juice machine! Teas and coffees served to your table. Probably worth more than two stars.

We stayed here for two nights and we had a gardern room on the ground floor. Its rated as 2 star and its better than that. The rooms are spotless (but can be small), the service excellent and the breakfast great. Hard to criticise. The situation to the Palace is a few minutes away. The parking is also free in the month of August. We found both the restaurants close by are a little expensive for what you get as its in the main avenue and there are better value ones just off the beaten track 5 mins away,however its very nice just to sit on the avenue and watch the world go by in the evening if you use the local ones.

Room Tip: The garden rooms we would try to get again as they are of reasonable size.

This was a great place to stay, We stayed here for one night only and did not have breakfast. We arrived about 11am and our room was ready for us. The room was small but was fine. The en-suite was newly renovated and was spotless. We had an excellent nights sleep and the bed was very comfortable. It is a short walk from the railway station and to the Chateau. Would stay here again - good value.

An excellent situation for visiting the Palace of Versailles- just 5 mins walk down the grand Avenue de Paris. The hotel doesn't have parking but there is plenty of on-road meter parking outside the hotel (free in August!). Room was comfortable with a little balcony over-looking the Avenue de Paris which was fairly noisy at night with the doors open, but not a problem. Breakfast was nothing special, apart from the freshly squeezed orange juice machine!

Despite the bustle of the city, the avenue de Paris can be pretty quiet thanks to the widness of the street. Thank you for your comment and come back anytime to taste again our orange juice. Best regards. Bruno ROSÉ

This hotel is rated two star I believe, but we received better service by far than the four star hotel we are staying in at the moment in Paris. Great location, easy walk to Versailles and train station and from Hertz rental to return the car. Wonderful staff, everyone so helpful and friendly. They directed us to cafes, kept our luggage after check out so we could visit Versailles and then hired a taxi for us to get to Paris. The room was extremely clean, again better than the four star we stayed at in London. Freshly painted and the bathroom has been recently renovated from the looks of it with all new tile and a great shower. Breakfast was included in our room rate and was amazing! The best hotel breakfast we have had on our Europe holiday. Multiple variety of pastries and breads, fresh squeezed orange juice, excellent breakfast. One of the best stays we have had here in Europe, highly recommend.

We arrived at 12 noon and the charming Receptionist let us have it early. It was a great help. Sadly the room was to the rear of the hotel had no view (apart from the wall opposite) and worse, had no air conditioning. The electric wall fan was a big help but very noisy. The Room was clean and tidy but certainly not a place you would want to stay in for long. Fortunately we were our all afternoon and the evening but the room was so hot overnight we did not get much sleep. The breakfast was adequate but far too dear at 11 euros ! They did their best to ensure our comfort but it is a very old fashioned hotel and needs a lot of upgrading before we will visit again. The hotel is well placed for restaurants, railway station and Palace (although the queues to get in there were horrendous). We took the train to Paris and had a great time.

Room Tip: We did not see into any of the other rooms but I would suggest that a room at the front would be pre...

The way this old and authentic real estate is built doesn't allow the installation of the AC, that is why we put the fan in the rooms. Besides, the summer was particulary hot in Versailles this year. For the rest, the hotel has been renovated during the last five year so. Sincerely yours. Bruno ROSÉ.
