The location of this hotel can't be beat. We arrived in the evening by car after spending time in the Dordogne region. This was just a one night stay, with plans to take the train to Paris in the morning. Avis was closed when we arrived so the car rental return would happen in the morning. Finding the hotel wasn't too bad but where to park was confusing. Our GPS took us to the road right in front of the hotel. We saw no car traffic on this road, only buses, but we assumed we could drive up to the front of the hotel and have someone run in to inquire about parking. This worked fine. The desk clerk advised us to back up a few yards and said she'd unlock the gate to their secured parking lot. We were able to park there overnight for just 8 Euro. Our rooms were small but perfectly adequate. We'd booked in advance and got a very reasonable rate. The shower had good water pressure and temperature. Like many other hotels on this trip to France, there was no electrical outlet in the bathroom, which was an inconvenience. It took less than ten minutes to walk to the Cathedral. The hotel's buffet breakfast looked fine but seemed expensive for what was offered (around 13 Euro as I recall?), so in the morning, we returned to the Cathedral area, where Le Cafe Serpente was open for breakfast. This didn't save money versus having breakfast in the hotel but it was a lovely cafe with the opportunity for views of the Cathedral while enjoying the wonderful coffee, breads and omelets. The hotel is about a three minute walk to the train station and the Avis car rental facility. Avis was supposed to be open at 9 a.m. but we were there at 10 a.m. and it was still closed. No problem, we could leave the car and put keys in the drop box. Returning a car when the rental facility is closed is never our first choice, which is why we hadn't done in on arrival in Chartres It was a slight annoyance to realize we could have done this the night before and not had to pay for a parking spot.

Stayed in this hotel for 1 night during a business trip in Chartres. Location was very central and next to the cathedral. Check in was smooth and staff friendly. Room was quite small and not the most comfortable of beds. However it was ok for the 1 night. Breakfast was satisfactory although I didn’t stay long - but the options looked ok. Check out was quick too.

Would only recommend for a short stay in Chartres.

It is not a new hotel , but it is close to Cathedral and old city centre. We had chosen it as it is not a glass box and windows are opening. Rooms are dark brown colour and blak carpets do not inspire. Well, modernisation is needed, but...Staff is very friendly and efficient.

Room Tip: Higher foor is always better

The place is well situated in the centre of Chartres and has secure parking for those that need it.

The rooms are simple but clean and comfortable although a few things don’t work!

A quirky situation that the bar has run out of wine and Ricard, but they have Belgium beer. However, we were told not to worry as it is on order!!!!

If you are passing through France and wish to visit the Cathedral in Chartres ( Which I highly recommend) the Timhotel is ideal. In the centre of the city with locked private parking and walking distance from almost everything. Comfortable rooms with a good shower and a good French breakfast. No restaurant , but no problem you are within a few minutes of many good eateries...
All in all an ideal place for a short break which will not break the bank!
