- Karen Brown's Recommendation:
Located on the outskirts of Les Andelys, the Hôtel de la Chaîne d’Or looks up to the castle ruins and backs onto the Seine. Just an hour or so to the north of Paris, Les Andelys is convenient to Charles de Gaulle airport and Roissy and just a few kilometers from Giverny, Monet’s home: a visit to Monet’s home and the gardens that inspired his genius will prove a highlight of your trip. The hotel is managed by Stéphanie and Oliver Bicot who take pride in welcoming guests and oversee the restaurant. Of the twelve bedrooms, six (1, 3, 5, 7, 10 and 11) overlook the river and enjoy views of the Seine and the constant, entertaining parade of barges. Room 10 is a spacious king-bedded room and room 1 is set with twins—both have water views. I especially like room 7, an end room, overlooking the water traffic, cozy in its soft decor of pink. The restaurant windows look over the Seine and across to a small island with an abandoned manor. It is an intimate place for lunch or dinner: the service is relaxed and comfortable and the menu offers an appealing selection of items. The owners recommend that overnight guests dine at the hotel.
