This is a no frills but none the less clean and comfortable hotel perfectly located in one of the old and narrow streets of Amboise; just a very short walk from the chateau and many restaurant.s . We stayed there for 3 nights in late June, whilst we explored this lovely part of the Loire Valley, and though our rioom... More

Set in the medieval street of Amboise, this hotel is in an old building but is totally modern inside. The location is quiet despite the narrow streets and a good nights sleep was had even with the windows open. Very well located for all the bars and restaurants in the town centre and a short walk from the Chateau entrance.... More

The room was clean. The service was good. The hotel is in the downtown of Amboise. We walked to buy foods. It is also near the castles. The public parking is about 5 minutes walk. The area is nice, safe, and clean.

The hotel is a few steps away from the main restaurants and attractions (Chateau D’Amboise and Clos Lucé), and has a very good price. Like many hotels in France, there’s no elevator, so be prepared to carry your luggage up the stairs. My room was tiny, but had enough room for a comfortable queen size bed and a nice desk.... More

I stayed here as part of a group tour. My room was small but clean and quiet. The breakfast was fine, with the typical fare but nothing special. The location was nice for exploring Amboise, which is a small town anyway. I could not get the wifi to work in my room, and since they close and lock the lobby... More

We stayed in a large room with private bath. Was very comfortable. Wifi was quite sketchy and had to go to another part of hotel to get logged in, but then could go back to the room to use computer. Located right downtown near the river. Parking is at a premium and had to pay. Staff friendly and helpful. Overall,... More

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
