Good for quick sleep over, don’t expect too much and don’t expect too little. Friendly staff and hotel room was good with a nice view and good WiFi. Hotel was close to the cathedrals by walking or drive, Asian food and others just around the corner.

Just came back from a 4 nights stay at Timhotel (previously Hotel Châtelet). Choose this hotel on due to his location and parking facilities. Despite calling the hotel the week before to confirm my booking and parking facilities there was no mention to book it in advance or of the carpark closure during my stay. I did mention my disappointment to the night porter on arrival but he wasn’t very much concerned! If I knew, I would have gone to another hotel! I paid about €65 (the same price of a night stay) for the nearby carpark. The room was comfortable, well equipped and quiet until the morning when you can hear the building work in next door former cinema. The room is very dark but with a great view on the cathedral. The carpet was stained and bathroom needed housekeeping check as not very clean with mouldy corners in bathroom and hairs in bath! Room cleaned on a daily basis and water bottle refilled if needed. Breakfast buffet was great at an extra €13!

Nice comfy hotel a few minutes walk from the Cathedral. Breakfast nice enough (except the coffee !) and a small bar if you fancy a drink in the evening. No restaurant - but they do offer room service from nearby restaurants + there are lots of decent restaurants on the same street and in the surrounding area.

We stayed two nights, primarily to visit the cathedral, but we actually liked the town and enjoyed walking around. The hotel is very near the cathedral with good secure parking. The room had a view of the cathedral but otherwise was unremarkable. A "brown" room, as my wife describes them - brown furniture, brown walls, floor etc. It was not luxurious or very spacious but it served its purpose. Buffet breakfast was available but we preferred to eat out at one of the many cafes/tea rooms. It was very hot on the day we arrived but the aircon was well up to the task. I think we would stay again, especially for the parking.

Husband and I spent the night here with his father in rooms #111 and 110. Arrived about 8:00pm and were welcomed by Jane who handled the check-in process efficiently and with a smile. On-site secured parking is €8/day and very worthwhile. Breakfast, which we didn't take) is €14/person and available in the restaurant/bar in the lobby. Rooms, while a little small, were clean and comfortable. Nice towels. Hair dryer in bathroom, in addition to bar soap, hand lotion, and all-in-one liquid body wash/shampoo. Kettle for coffee/tea-making was appreciated, as was the small refrigerator. Heat via radiator, air conditioning via remote control in each room. We opened the window as the weather was perfect. A short 5 minute walk to the wonderful Chartres Cathedral! Some hotel rooms have views of the Cathedral-our rooms had only partial views. When you arrive by car, ignore the "Bus Only" sign at the top of the street. The hotel is in the middle of that block on your right. When visiting Chartres again, I would not hesitate to stay here. Ask for Jane!

Clean room with fantastic view of Chartres cathedral for the day and during the illumination show at night. Walking distance to the train, and market stalls on market days. Good breakfast. Staff helpful in locating meals and sights.

Spacious hotel in heart of Chartres, 5 minutes walk from cathedral. Large bedroom for three, quiet at night, and comfortable beds. Large bathroom. Internet worked well. Car parking on site (8 euro) via gated driveway right next to reception (ask them to open). The main street on to which the hotel faces is closed to through traffic but open for access to the hotel.

The advantage of this hotel that it is only four minute walk from chartres Cathedral. Do tell is rather old but clean. If you're traveling be aware that they do charge eight or 10 euros for parking and parking spaces Limited. Bathrooms were old but clean. Breakfast is 10 or 15 euros and the rather simple but adequate. There is no restaurant in the hotel but there are plenty of restaurants in the area. This is a good place for one night stop if you're visiting the cathedral. If you're looking for newer and cheaper accommodations Luke at the Ibis hotel on the other side of Cathedral that is only seven minute walking distance.

This hotel has all the charm of a 60's concrete blockhouse and needs complete refurbishment to bring it into the 21st Century! The decor is awful, the rooms although clean are spartan and unappealing. The only good things to say are: 1) Good location close to old town, cathedral, shops and station. 2) Very good parking facilities so close to town centre. Breakfast was ok but average.

We had a perfect view of Chartres Cathedral right from our bed (see fotos). The room was nicely furnished, the bed and chairs in a darkish green with gold linings. Toilet was separate from the bathroom, a feature we prefer. Unfortunately, it was not possible hairdryer to take a bath as the drainige could not be shut so it was shower only. The hairdryer was very strong and some bathroom amenities were provided as were bath robes and slippers. There is also a built-in safe. The hotel provides a spacious private parking area (secured) at € 8 per night. The cathedral provides a nightly light show on its facade (at least during the summer season). We skipped that due to bad weather but still were able to watch at least part of it from the comfort of our hotel room.
