Fodor's Expert Review Hôtel de Londres

1 pl. du Général de Gaulle, Fontainebleau, Île-de-France, 77300, France Fodor's Choice

Established in 1850, the superbly located Londres has been run with pride by the same family for three generations, and guests are treated to a warm welcome by owners who go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. Charmingly homey yet elegant, the ample-sized rooms are tastefully decorated with antiques and oriental rugs; some have fireplaces, and six have balconies with marvelous views of the Fontainebleau palace entrance and the Cour des Adieux, where Napoléon bade his troops an emotional farewell (the best views are from Rooms 10 and 11 on the top floor). The hotel's stately 19th-century facade is a registered landmark.

  • château views from some rooms
