The hotel is comfortable with good sized rooms with all the usual facilities. Valet parking was swiftly and efficiently dealt with. Location is very convenient for the Cathedral and other key sights. Very good restaurant. Altogether a strong recommendation.

We arrived in France late Saturday morning, and drove directly from CDG to Le Grand Monarque in Chartres. Having only read a few reviews, we were not sure what to expect, but we delighted with our hotel. Chartres is a beautiful city, and Le Grand Monarque is perfectly situated. The hotel is located at the heart of Chartres and only...

I stayed here for 9 nights over a 10 night period (went away so stayed elsewhere for one night. Both halves of the stay were very good with the rooms well presented and all modern amenities. When I checked back in for the second half of my stay they had already taken my suitcase to my new room. Breakfast was...

Chartres is an excellent point at which to stop over if travelling from Britain further south into Europe and this hotel makes the stopover utterly worthwhile! They valet park for you since the carpark is a short step from the hotel. The restaurant is Michelin starred, but if you need somewhere a little more modest, you are simply a road...

Delightful surprise to find the high end quality at a very reasonable price. Staff was above helpful. We stayed in Marie Antoinette suite. My favorite room on our travels all over France. Traditional with artistic flair. Beams, silks, daybed, chaise lounge, Pillows with painting parts, lovely bathroom and views of town. Close walk to Chartres cathedral that was doing the...

If you are passing North/South and looking for a stopover in this neck of the woods, Chartres ticks a lot of boxes. The Cathedral is stunning and over the summer months they have a (free) nightly lightshow working on a loop around the key historical sights. This hotel is well located,in the centre easy to drive to and with valet...

The room was comfortable and well appointed. All the rooms have been modernized although the hotel itself has a traditional layout. It is deservedly one of the top hotels in Chartes. The only drawback was that the Michelin starred restaurant was fully booked when we tried to make a reservation on arrival. Next time we will book the restaurant at...

We travel regularly between the South and North of France, and we take always the opportunity to make a stopover in the many towns and villages on the west side of Paris, in the large Normandy area. More often than not, we like to stay in Chartres, and this hotel is excellent value. It is located in the heart of...

My adult daughter and myself were doing a road trip throughout France in September and visited Chartres in September. Our trip was haphazard taking us where we wanted to go so therefore did not book hotels. We arrived in Chartres and all the 'normal' rooms were booked but the hotel offered us a Junior Suite at an amazing rate. They...

Le Grand Monarque was a lovely hotel (with a Michelin starred restaurant), abutting the upper part of the old town. It is a very short work to the Cathedral. Our room was extremely spacious by European standards. It was quiet and clean. And it has some charm. The staff were incredibly nice and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this hotel...
