“If you go to Versailles, stay at Res. Du Berry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2011

It was already a pleasure to contact this hotel for booking. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful, offered a discount on request and accepted our little dog. Arrival was also a pleasure, fast and friendly check-in was guaranteed and a reco for a nice restaurant nearby came on top. Only down-side: public parking only as we arrived by car. The hotel is extremely cosy, nicely decorated with beautiful furnitures, carpets, etc. Rooms are quite small, also the bathroom, but acceptable. All is very clean and proper, there is always someone to talk to or to ask questions. The staff is very helpful if support is required. Breakfast is good but not too rich, e.g. no cheese which is strange for France. All in all, Res. Du Berry was a great choice, especially to the proximity (8 min walk) to Versailles Castle, and we'd like to come back one day.

Good points:
Friendly and helpful staff
Excellent location for exploring Versailles and within easy reach of the local train station which takes you straight into the heart of Paris
Clean and tidy
Comfortable rooms
Excellent restaurants in the area

Bad points:
No food served other than breakfast (which is good), but there are a large number of restaurants in the local area.
No kettle in the room, so you can't make a hot drink
The hairdryer in my room wasn't very powerful.
Parking can be a problem

Summary:
I stayed here for 4 nights while on a business trip and really enjoyed it. The staff were very helpful (and spoke English). There is also a free pool table and a small bar.

I would certainly recommend this hotel as it was a lot nicer than the (far more expensive) hotels I've stayed in in the centre of Paris.

Stayed here for three nights at the end of August and got a decent deal on the hotel's website giving 3 nights for the price of 2. My stay was mixed though.

Good things - good location only 5 mins walk from station and the Chateau (tip - go to Chateau VERY early as queues can be massive). Staff we're friendly and very helpful although mostly invisible. Breakfasts very good - just continental offered though. Hotel nice and quite and very clean. Nice outdoor courtyard for drinks. Close to lots of restaurants and bars.

Bad things - felt the room was very small, and very hot with no air conditioning. Bedding was old fashioned with sheet and blanket. No duvet. Bed too wasn't the greatest in the world. Only English tv channel was CNN (no big deal for me). Drinks in the bar were very expensive (5 euros for a coke - this isn't a 5 star hotel!)

In fact if you're planning to eat or drink in Versailles be prepared to have spend lots of cash - it can be very expensive. I bought a round of drinks (6) at a local bar and it came to 49 euros. Ouch!

Would I go back? Probably not - I'd try somewhere else first.

We were travelling from the north on our way to the Loire but got caught in a snow storm so we decided to cut the trip short and stay in Versaille. We booked the room from the car based on some travel books and had no idea what we were in for.

Pleasant surprise is an understatement. The staff at the Du Barry were greaat. They gave us a cool room in the back overlooking the patio (there's anything going on in February on the patio).

The breakfast was served impeccably.

We were only there for one night (Saturday) this time but I can assure that whenever we are in Versaille, we will only be staying at La Residence Du Berry.

The location is great. It's within walking distance of the chateaux. (Walking to the chateau is best part. You will see what I'm talking about when you're there.)

My wife and I enjoyed staying her very much.

I really enjoyed my stay here - it was for only one night but the room was well appointed, well designed and very comfortable with a good bathroom. The breakfast was great too. The reception staff were very helpful. I would definitely stay here again. Thought it was good for the price. Highly recommend
