A charming hotel, a stone’s throw from Chartres’ cathedral and train station. Welcome to Matthieu Deshayes's hotel.
“A charming hotel in an ideal location giving you a pleasant setting for your stay in Chartres.”
Matthieu took over the Hôtel de l’Ouest in 2012, opposite Chartres train station and 10 minutes’ walk from the cathedral. Five months of work was enough to give this pretty building from 1900 back its character and a soul of a comfortable cocoon. “When it came to the decor, I wanted to keep the spirit of the building. Nothing ostentatious but lots of charm.” The 29 rooms and common areas of this 3 star hotel in Chartres have gentle colours and high-quality materials. You can be carried away by the poetry of the premises. The hotel’s name also tells you something: The Originals Boutique, Hotel Les Poèmes de Chartres. You will find various verses dotted around across the 3 floors (with no lift).
With natural pastel colours, a gentle and soothing spirit prevails in The Originals Boutique, Hotel Les Poèmes de Chartres’ 29 rooms. A cocoon of wellbeing and romanticism. You can choose from standard, classic or prestige rooms. There are also two family suites available (for up to 4 people). Handicapped guests can stay in ground floor rooms, fully equipped for their needs.

In the mornings, take your time over a generous breakfast buffet. You can visit the bar at any time of the day to enjoy a refreshment. The Originals Boutique, Hotel Les Poèmes de Chartres does not have its own restaurant but there are many in close proximity. You can also try traditional cuisine at Le Jehan restaurant, adjoining the hotel of the same name (another of Mathieu’s properties) that connects directly to The Originals Boutique, Hotel Les Poèmes de Chartres by the hall.
While Chartres is best known for its cathedral, a gem of Gothic art, the town and its surroundings are not short of attractions. Explore them to make the most of your stay at The Originals Boutique, Hotel Les Poèmes de Chartres.

Timber framed houses, small bridges and footbridges, gardens and vegetable patches facing the river give it a real rural charm.
