We had a fantastic room, very comfortable. The staff at the reception was very friendly and helpful. As the restaurant The Georges was closed which is a shame as very good, we had diner at the brasserie which was very bad. The food was expensive for a very poor quality. Service

The staff was very helpful and recommended not missing the Chartre Cathedral Light Show which was outstanding. The location is a 10 minute walk from the train station and about 5 minutes from the cathedral. Notre Dame of Chartre is our favorite cathedral in Europe; well worth

Ideal place to stay in the city center. Easy walking distance to the major sites. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful! The rooms very very nice and well appointed. Noise between the rooms could be a problem. We could hear our friends talking in the adjoining room.

We've well noted your remark regarding the soundproof in the room you were in, be sure that this information will be shared with the concerned service so that the problem could be solved. Regarding the breakfast served at the hotel, indeed the price is about 17 euros for the buffet style breakfast but we also propose an expressa formula at 7 euros per person.
