A l'Hotel des Roys

It all comes down to what you want....if you want luxury, don't go to des Roys. Despite it's name, it's not for the kings. It is clean and friendly though and the breakfast, albeit a bit pricey at 11€, was nice. The hotel is also just down the road from the palace, so you cannot fault the location.

We had two adjacent rooms, one of which was under headline "new" and hence twice the price. It was newer than the other one, but not exactly luxurious. In fact, the room was a bit confusing: it had Villeroy & Boch bathroom suite, so not exactly cheap, but the rest of the decor didn't seem to follow the same standard.

Our rooms were downstairs, with windows and glass door facing to the inner courtyard, so we felt a little but exposed and could hear whenever someone went to one of the other rooms, but luckily most people seemed to go to bed at similar time with us, so it didn't become an issue.

We only stayed for one night on the way to the south, so a nice clean bed with good breakfast was all we needed. Had we planned our trip slightly differently (our children didn't fancy going to the palace, after all, but wanted to head for the next stop - camping!), we would probably have stayed something less central and less expensive.

The hotel has no dedicated parking, but there is a lot of parking on the Avenue de Paris and it is free in the weekends.

Friendly staff, but the rooms are the size of a walk in closet, bathroom and toilet areas separate and even smaller. We could not get the wireless internet to work for more than 5 minutes at a time. Comfortable bed, though. May be fine to use as a base to explore, as long as you don't plan to spend too much time in the room. Just not a business hotel.

We stayed at this hotel and found it to be very comfortable. It had a nice big shower and the bed was comfortable. It is about 1/2 km from the Palace of Versailles so you can easily walk there. It has an elevator. It says on Trip Advisor that the hotel has free parking. This is only true in August. There is parking on the street but one has to pay during the other months. Lucky for us we were there in August!

Clean, comfortable and in a great location - with a double room for £100 a night. The hotel is in a great location 5 minutes walk from the Chateau and the train stations. The rooms are not huge, but they never are anywhere close to Paris. We avoided the 11 euro breakfast. Would definitely stay there again.
