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.

The Hotel de France et de Guise is a grand, old building in the center of the gorgeous, old town of Blois. A very personable, lovely lady assisted us with our check-in. The rooms were beautifully furnished, super clean and comfortable, as were the bathrooms. Free, well functioning WiFi was offered. The location was amazing, just steps away from a... More

This review is bicycle oriented. We arrived in Bloise from Orleans via Chambord. Met at the door be the charming concierge we were escorted to the secure parking for our bikes. Clean rooms bit the walls were a bit thin. Not uncommon in two star hotels. Breakfast was good. ( it's all about the coffee for me and in France... More

The first room we were booked in to had a terrible water rot smell. We tried to tough it out but had to ask for a another room, it was making me nauseous. The owners were gracious and obliged. The second room was somewhat better but with no wifi reach, a major disappointment as we were reaching the end of... More

Although it's an old hotel with tiny elevator and sort of funky rooms. Our room was very large and they even put in a tea pot for us for tea in the mornings. Breakfasts a bit weak so we skipped them. Very helpful staff and above all great location and great value

I stayed at Hotel France et de Guise in early mid September. My room was located on the top floor at the front of the Hotel and it was extremely spacious. The facilities were excellent although a little dated, however the location and assistance from the staff made up for any minor qualms (a creaky floor). The breakfast was thoroughly... More

Friendly and helpful receptionist and breakfast room staff, and good location, but that's as far as it goes. Unbelievably, on arrival we found the toilet in our bathroom had been used (and I mean 'used'!) and left unflushed, let alone uncleaned. Very run down hotel, dismal and smells dirty. If you like windows open at night, be prepared for a... More

We feel very sorry that you did not find the standard of hotel that you expected. The day of your departure, when you informed us about the toilets " used", our plomber came and repaired the disfunctionment. Regarding the noise in the street, we are located downtown. Most of our clients want a room looking over the casttle but those... More

Lovely character hotel, we asked for a room away from the street which was very quiet. We came by train with our bikes, just rolled down the hill and there is was. Nice big garage for bike storage. Staff are really helpful and friendly, we felt very welcome.

We were on the 3rd floor – room 33 overlooking the street as we had requested. Stayed here 2 nights recently. Can be somewhat noisy at night with the window open but we had a good view of the castle and the church in the park across the street. Bed was small but okay. In an older building, nothing fancy...

On first seeing our room I was disappointed, it was on the top floor, very small and dated. That said the bed was comfy, sheets, towels crisp and fresh and we looked onto the Chateaux. It's in a great position for exploring Blois and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. If you are looking for smart decoration... More
