We have kept on returning to this hotel, whenever we are passing, for the last 20 years. Its always been welcoming, clean, and efficient and now has two good restaurants. Parking is some way away down a side street but the staff will park your car for you. Its hard to stop outside to unload due to new bus lanes.

Perfect location for exploring the Chartres and the Cathedrale. Based on a tip on TA, I paid a little more and we got a Prestige room - king bed, huge room, great modern bath, quiet - everything was great. Excellent check-in and service. After a long rainy day, we were too lazy and cold to go out to eat for...

Our favorite hotel in Chartres. Excellent rooms for a great price. Elegant hotel with a superb restaurant and a romantic bar. Wonderful staff. I can't say enough about this hotel. The location is superb. The attention to detail is superb. Everything is superb. And it's near the finest cathedrals in the universe. Do a YouTube search for "Chartres Cathedral documentary."...

We arrived in the evening without any reservation, and we were welcomed by a very nice and friendly lady. Without asking for anything we got upgraded to a very nice and quiet room on the courtyard. We didn't had the time to go to the spa, but we will do for sure next time.

Checking in was a bit busy, but with warm service. Kid & dog friendly which is always great for us. Spacious family room, well equipped. Michelin star restaurant & brasserie in the hotel. Very convenient. Good location. Quick walk to the cathédrale.

I have stayed here before and was enthralled with the room, and the room service. The desk staff were just as great as last time, but I booked a mid-rate room better than the last time and was given a room whose windows opened on to a walkway with cigarette butts on it. The room was so hot that we...

This hotel is well situated in the centre of Chartres just a short walk from the Cathedral. The complex road layout of the Place des Epars nearly blew our GPS SatNav off the map, but once you feel happy about crossing a bus lane and dodging into the '5 minute' drop-off it's easy to pop in to Reception ready for...

Comfortable hotel with a great location if you are visiting Chartres to see the cathedral. We could see it from our window which overlooked a Sunday flea market. Downtown has a lot of empty store fronts so we ate our meals at the hotel for convenience. Service and quality of the food was good but not the best in France....

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...
