As close to the palace as it gets! My second stay.
Posted Jun 2, 2016
This is my second year staying at this hotel and I'd go back again in a heartbeat. If you are looking to stay as close to the Palace gates as possible, this is your hotel. The Chateau de Versailles is directly ahead on the street, about a 3 minute walk. The hotel is very clean, secure, beautiful, and has a distinctly French flavor. The staff is very helpful and most of the people in guest services at the desk speak English as well. I speak enough French to converse, but I was concerned about asking complicated questions (which sometimes come up with hotel stays) in French, but this wasn't an issue at all. As a female traveler exploring Europe alone, I am careful about where I stay. This hotel is in a very good area and feels quite secure. They lock the doors at night and you must be buzzed in with the intercom by confirming your name and too number.
The rooms were clean, there was plenty of hot water, and the train station that takes you into Paris on the RER C is only a 5 minute walk away. There are a bunch of little shops next door and the tourism office is also right up against the side of the building. Versailles is a beautiful little city to explore and there are great food choices, boutiques and lots of other little spots to enjoy! Paris is about 30 minutes away by train and the metro is easy to navigate!
