Good clean hotel, good choice at breakfast. Just a little isolated if you want to walk into town

Will need to find an alternate hotel in Melun
Room was way too small: no space to use the chair at the desk, bathroom door only opened part way before hitting the shower stall, shower stall too small to pick up dropped item...which wasn't a bar of soap since one was not provided. As occurred the one other time we tried this hotel, the restaurant was supposed to be open but wasn't. The guy at the desk when we checked in at night was friendly and helpful, but the woman during the day was rude and standoffish.

A little dated and dissapointing.
We came out from Paris to stay at this hotel for one night so we could go out to the Chateau de Vaux le Vicomte. The strangest part about this journey was the lack of taxi cabs in town. We had a very difficult time getting one from the station to the hotel. The hotel itself is in a lovely setting, however, there was a odd odor in the lobby area when we came in. Our room was fairly spacious - if a little dated and had a nice view of the grounds and the pool (which was already closed for the season when we were there). The front desk WAS able to call a cab for us to go out to the Chateau and we were able to arrange with that driver to pick us up late that evening. Breakfast the next morning (12 euros) was very disappointing. And since you are a little ways away from town, there are few options. There are cheeses and meats, cereals, yogurts, breads, coffee and juice. There were also very cold rubbery scrambled eggs and bacon that looked raw. As we prepared to leave the next morning, we asked the front desk to call a cab for us back to the train station. No cabs were available and, although we had a train to catch in one hour, the front desk offered little help but to suggest we walk. Which we had to do, carrying all of our heavy luggage (no roller bags!). It wasn't a terrible walk, but carrying large bags was not the way we wanted to start our morning. Although the room was decent, we found the service, public areas and breakfast lacking.

Charming Hotel - Great Staff
This is a lovely hotel in a lovely area just outside of the Chateau of Fontainebleau. The back yard is beautiful and during the summer, guests can enjoy an outdoor pool and picnic area. Parking is plentiful! And everything is well tended. A tip would be to stay on the parking side of the hotel if you love quiet because the back side, which overlooks the beautiful lot, also features parties. I do not think that is a drawback, but some vacationers might.
