We came here as a couple and found it very serviceable -- however, the size (and comfort) of the bed and the bathroom were really better for one person, not two. It's very clean and tidy, well located near Amboise's "main drag" and run by a really lovely family with an adorable daughter and dog. Not luxurious, but it works,... More

I will admit I was disappointed with our room as it was in no way cute or quaint. The room, however, was large and clean with a comfy bed. The bathroom is downright ugly, of the plastic, per-fabricated, molded type, but it worked well. The front counter staff was very nice and let us leave our luggage while we toured... More

The welcome at this hotel wasn't particularly warm (our first night of a walking tour) and in retrospect, we're not surprised that they didn't want to show us up to our room on the second floor. It was small, claustrophobic, with an unpolished floor, a tiny dormer window and a sloping ceiling, that meant you couldn't stand up in half... More

A tiny room, with sloping ceiling on one side and a minute area to hang clothes with only one small shelf. The bathroom was one of those plastic French ones that arrives all in one piece, with shower (curtain attached using an advanced sort of paper clip), loo and basin all squashed in together. Breakfast was good but unimaginative (Danone... More

This hotel was away from the downtown area of Amboise but close to and short walking distance to stores and attractions. Be careful to not pick your rooms on the side street of the building, thought, as the cars race on this street and you cannot keep your window open because of the noise!!! Otherwise we had a nice but... More

It is probably difficult to provide modern amenity in a medieval building, especially one that was always rather modest. The climb up the narrow winding staircase to my second floor room was a challenge and I needed to duck the ancient beams and sloping ceilings. The room did have character, of a spartan kind; no frills here. The bed was... More

We have arrived at the hotel at late afternoon, a family of 5 person (3 small children). We were promised to have spacious room for all of us. The room was at the third floor, there were 5 beds in the room without any vacant place to even put the bags. The bathroom was a real joke in the size... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in September 2013 as part of a self guided bike tour. The hotel is in a cute old building but our room was tiny. So small our two suitcases couldn't fit without rearranging the furniture. The wifi was very difficult and our bathroom sink clogged, something the staff told us couldn't be fixed during... More

Well placed within Amboise this hotel is a little dated, but offers excellent value for money. The staff were very friendly and helpful. A plus is the hotel has secure parking. Breakfast is also good value for money, as much coffee and fruit juice as you wish.

This hotel was recommended by tourist board, 2star. It is a wonderful 14th century building and good value for money. The rooms are small but adequate, very clean and individual air conditioning on top floor rooms which was best in any hotel we've stayed in, in France. The owner could not have been more helpful, and breakfast was served in... More
