My wife and I stayed for two nights at the Hotel de France and de Guise in Blois on July 2 and 3, 2015 as the first step in our vacation in the Loire castles. This classic French hotel opened in 1891 and clearly has had better days (it is now a two star hotel in the French ranking system... More

Madame, Monsieur, We thank you for your review and have noted the positive points that you have mentioned : situation , low prices, warm welcome... Concerning the repair of the lock, we would have made the same intervention during the night. As we say at each arrival, there is always someone in the hotel that can be reached even during... More

This is a classic French family-run hotel. It has charm, but is slightly worn at the edges. If you need standard uniformity, this is not for you. However, for 70 EUR for a Comfort room with balcony offering a view of the Castle I think this was a good deal. Staff is super friendly and was very helpful. Breakfast at... More

We are absolutely horrified by the condition of this place. We could only get the quadruple room even we were only two and they couldn't even include breakfast for the high price they charged. The smell was awful in the bathroom. We slept and left at first dawn. For our final surprise we went out for a walk and when... More

BE AWARE OF CLIENTS WHO TELL LIES and change the meanings of our acts because we refused to give a discount on the price of their room which was already reserved through Booking.com and did not agree to offer breakfast upon their arrival. If we did enter into their room, it was to give more space by closing a sofa... More

Hotel de France et de Guise has a perfect location, close to the castle. The staff is very friendy and our room, as well as the rest of the hotel, reeked of atmosphere. There are parkings not far away and, as we understood it, they are free at night and in the weekends. Blois is a nice stop if you... More

The welcome was wonderful, the parking a challenge. We had a huge room for our family of five, and was comfy altho a bit dated. The shower was BIZARRE (sideways showerhead in tub w strange curtain) but otherwise the stay was great.

We stayed 3 nights and were extremely happy with the hotel. It has a lovely ambience & flavour of a bygone era. We paid a little extra for a " Comfort" room, on a higher floor. It gave us a little more room to relax with a view across to chateau being a treat to admire from our windows. (... More

We enjoyed a wonderful 4 days at this grand old hotel. What great host Jacky and Annie were, they were so very helpful with organising a shuttle bus on 2 days to take us to 4 Chateaus, not to mention assisting us with other tourist sites and restaurants to enjoy the local cuisine. Our hotel room was very roomy, warm,... More

Staff at this location were helpful and friendly. Initially our room was on the street side of the hotel...and was too loud..they immediately moved us to a quieter room in the hotel. This is an inexpensive hotel, but clean and centrally located for visiting the chateaus in Loire.

We thank you for your kind review and are happy that you have appreciated our hotel and the team. As you wrote it we have rooms facing the castle and the street and some rooms at the back. So it could be good to mention when you book that the quietness is very important. We hope to welcome you another... More

Okay it is a bit tired and tatty but would much rather have that than a clinical corporate hotel. Receptionist very pleasant and welcoming, not all the creature comforts but happy to dispense with those for the charm.
