Timhotel Chartres Cathédrale

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed overnight here recently and were very pleased with the accommodation and the friendliness of the staff. The rooms were comfortable and away from the main road so no noise at night. A real bonus was the fact that the underground car park is next door!

Stayed 1night on our way south. Reception staff very helpful with good English. Car park ideally placed at side of hotel. Bedroom was clean, although it is looking very tired. Bed frames, woodwork all could do with a good renovation. Looks quite shabby and not shabby chic! Bathroom sink had a number of cracks in it and shower in bath, although good, did not drain away too quickly. Do not like separate toilet and bathroom, but of course, that is a personal choice. Very close to Cathedral and old town. Plenty of restaurants although the evening we were there a number were closed. Not sure would stay again as quite pricey and not in tip top condition for the price.

My husband and I opted for a romantic weekend getaway and got a good offer at the Timhotel Chartes Cathédrale. We had room 316 where we had a lovely view of the cathédrale. We had a superior double room, champagne and lovely rose petals. Although there's no restaurant at the hotel the Saturday evening is hard to find restaurants if you have no reservation. So réserve in advance. The hotel is about 200metres from the train station. Nicely positioned.

It's been two years since we visited Chartres and this time around we opted again for this hotel. The first obvious consideration is its excellent location just steps from the old town and its magnificent cathedral. Second, and equally important, is helpfulness of the staff that goes of their way to help guests. The hotel itself is quite comfortable and the breakfast reasonably good.

on the way back to Belgium from the south of France we decided to stop in Chartres: it's only 60 kms before Paris and you avoid to pass the toll at the end of the day... it's easy to start the day after soon after a good time ! the Timhotel is perfectly located, has a safe parking ( outside or inside for 8 eur) , nice rooms with sight on the cathedral, gentle staff and agreements with several restaurants . You walk 5 min to the cathedral and the old town and Chartres has a magnificent enlightening after dark with scenery on the buildings, ... it's worth

We liked our Room 313, a spacious “executive room.” It is on the top floor and has a big window with an excellent view of Chartres Cathedral. The hotel is half a block from the SNCF train station and a short walk from the Cathedral.

We needed an economical place to stay on route to the ferry from the south and this seems ideal. I had no great expectations but it turned out to be really good with a helpful reception desk, secure parking, very comfy rooms and a nice breakfast. It is 5 mins walk to the cathedral and into the old area of this lovely town and I highly recommend it.

This is a very good local hotel to the Cathedral that has a range of good clean rooms and has very easy access to the centre of the town. It has a good private car park both above, and below ground (v useful in wet conditions). Extremely helpful staff that speak good English.

On the positive side, the hotel is conveniently located for exploring Chartres, and there is plenty of secure parking, although that costs 8 euros. Some rooms have good views of the cathedral. The bed linen was very good quality. The staff are pleasant. However, the photos and descriptions of this hotel look better than the reality. We booked an executive room with twin beds, cathedral and garden view for 125 euros. On the 3rd floor, we had a good view of the cathedral and the car park. We would have preferred two twin beds. Instead we got a double and a single. The double had a lump in the middle and the single was against a wall which made it less comfortable. The WC was tiny and only suitable for very slim people. The bathroom basin needed replacing. You have to pay extra to use the safe. The breakfast area looked dark and unattractive and at 13.50 euros breakfast is expensive. There are several cafes nearby which are better value.

The hotel is conveniently located next to the cathedral and offer a good service. it is a bit tricky to get there as you should drive into a bus road only to get to the parking. had a great stay with a nice room.
