A proper French hotel full of character. The hotel is in an old building opposite Chateau Of Versailles. The hotel does not have any car parking facilities but you are able to park your car close by. We had a lovely family room which was of a very good size with a decent sized bathroom. Our bedroom decorated in what...

A great time for travel, if you can do it, is right after the holidays. Crowds are gone, rates are lower, and there's still a seasonal atmosphere. The Hotel de France was a great choice in this regard. The location could not be better if you have an interest in visiting the Chateau of Versailles and the town. I was...

Our stay at the Hotel de France was very enjoyable. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. It was one of only two hotels that is close, and I mean close to the Chateau, that has a room set up with two twin beds - we were two friends traveling and needed our own beds to sleep more comfortably. There...

Our family of 5 stayed here in early August and had interconnecting rooms. Each room has great individuality and the beds are very comfortable. We had a 6 week old baby and the hotel couldn't do enough to ensure we had all we needed. The rooms were large enough to accomodate all the paraphanalia that accompanies young children and the...

Location is unbeatable, literally across the street from the majestic chateau de Versailles. Unfortunately we were there last weekend during "la canicule" and rooms while seemed to have air-conditioning, air was not provided. We had lunch at the restaurant and they did have cool air there... Otherwise ti is an old fashion hotel with nice clean rooms, some of the...

I stay here whenever I'm in Paris - comfortable friendly and great service - O'Paris bar down the road serves a great selection of beer and there are plenty of local good quality restaurants nearby / I would also say the lady on reception is fantastic and nothing is too much trouble .

Stayed here for 2 nights and absolutely loved it. Hotel situated on pretty tree lined road opposite the palace. Our room was very pretty, huge bathroom and we were lucky enough to have a room at the front of the hotel. Although the road in front was busy the room was really well soundproofed. We had problems with our tickets...
