Not too many great, or for that matter, terrible things to mention. Simply happens to be an acceptable budget-minded option (amongst very few---esp. during the off-season) in this strategically-located market town on the Loire. It's sole strengths would be the RELATIVE low price + central location. The facilities and amenities are, simply put, quite "institutional" --- Lacks the "character" one... More

This place is very affordable and within walking distance of all of Amboise's city-center sites. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast offered up a decent variety of both "sweet and salty" foods (as the front desk clerk put it). As with most things, you get what you pay for. The facility is like a dormitory. Our room... More

This hotel was perfect for our stay! Centrally located and walkable to everything! The couple who run the hotel are simply charming and sweet. Very helpful with our late arrival just contact them in advance! Room was basic with standard amenities. Bathroom was larger than expected but shower was quite small. Bed was comfy and clean. For the price this... More

Not very impressed. The hotel advertises free public parking nearby - Yes, these are two separate free parking lots but they are 400 to 500 meters away and there is no guarantee of a parking spot - we were lucky as we came when it was quiet (Mid May), it may be an issue in June-July-August. The room was tiny,... More

We were welcomed by the staff in this family run hotel. the rooms were great and reflected the price we paid. They were clean and there was a good sized en-suite bathroom. The hotel is in a great location not far from the centre / river Loire. I would stay here again.

I traveled to Amboise with a school group and they were from what our chaperones said the front desk was extremely helpful. We were in walking distance to Leonardo De Vinci's house which was a plus. We only stayed there for two days so the rooms were big enough for those two stays. The breakfast was great, but a bad... More

We stayed two nights the last weekend of September, 2012. The reception staff helped us with our train and rental car plans, despite our halting French and requests for changes in the reservation. They had clean, warm rooms, comfortable beds, and a plentiful breakfast. We would go back again since the price was quite reasonable.

Long ago we lived in the area of Amboise, and returned to reconnect. Our desires were the same as when we are home: to feel welcomed, cared for, comfortable. Hotel Chaptal fits the bill! This is a modest, immaculate family hotel where the little things matter. Priced right, the ample but not large room had delightfully sleepworthy beds. The efficient... More

The location near the centre of town is excellent. Parking is possible on street at €3 for 4 hours, but free parking is available in Place Richelieu, about 200 metres away. The rooms are a bit small and in ours, the window was so high that you could not see out, but that was on the 2nd floor. The bathroom... More
