Probably one of the best locations to visit the Palais de Versailles. We stayed here 2 nights, really liked it. Staff was super friendly. Associated restaurant is OK, with 15% off for hotel guests, but is understaffed ( thus slow service). Parking is free in street overnight and in August; otherwise there is a reasonable daily outdoor parking behind the...

This hotel is very charming & old world. Loved it! Big rooms, lots of closer space, HUGE bathroom with tub and wonderful, helpful staff! One block from the Chateau entrance which was great after a full day of walking the Chateau & Gardens!!!!!! Breakfast was good if not large amounts. Would definitely recommend this hotel!!!

Well, it started ok, ideal location for the Palace, nice Room, and a nice welcome, first night was great, the second night is where it all went horribly wrong, the Bar next door had a wedding, now in England, these functions are generally over by mid-night......not in France.......4am the pounding, heavy beat of Disco music finally ended.......then, the revellers spilled...

Ideally located very close to the entrance gates to the palace, this hotel oozes warmth and hospitality, a charm often in short supply in Paris hospitality. Rooms were spacious and well appointed although lacked tea making facilities. Beds were comfortable and rooms were clean. Breakfast a little pre packaged but lovely fresh bread. Restaurant next door was great for lunch...

Fantastic! This beautiful hotel was more than a pleasant surprise. I planned my trip on the fly with no reservations. I stayed at three different star rating hotels in Versailles to sample. This was the mid-level hotel. The price is unbeatable for the quality. Make sure your rate includes breakfast... I think they all do at this hotel. I will...

We booked a night in this hotel as a stopover on our way back home after a driving holiday in Europe. It was an absolute delight as the 2 rooms we booked were ornately decorated in the style of the palace. The children thought it was fantastic. A comfortable night's sleep and great bathroom. Perhaps not the finest breakfast ever,...

We booked this hotel as part of a trip to see the Prix De L'Arc De Triomphe Horse Race at Longchamp on 7th Oct. The hotel was about a 15 min walk from Versailles Chantiers station- The Rive Gauche station is a bit closer. Ideal for visiting the golden palace (chateau) as just across the road. This is a small...

Our experience at Hotel de France was very good. We had rented a car in Paris but chose to drive to Versailles and take the train back into the city...driving in Paris is a challenge. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a delightful hostess who provided much needed information about parking. We were pleased with our room and updated bath....

Not impressed with reception when we arrived, a bit unhelpful but improved next day. Average room but the building is very old so can be excused but fantastic location for the Palace - could not get closer. Very good Alsatian restaurant next door. Can put up with the inadequacies for its location.

We stayed at the Hotel de France for three nights during the month of June 2012. Our first night was a little unpleasant because of the odor coming from the bathroom. We were staying on the second floor and the odor at night became unbearable. The next morning we did say something to the reception and they moved us to...
