The hotel was okay considering the price of the room and the age of the building (historical building from the 15th century, meaning: small doorframes, small windows, narrow stairs...). Rooms have been renovated, but are not up to modern standards (no wifi in the room, bathroom looked like straight out of the 50s). I would recommend this hotel for backpackers... More

Only stayed in Blois for the night and I would recommend this place to anyone going there. The decor of the rooms is a bit weird, and the communal shower I imagine would be irritating if you're there for more than a night. Aside from that it was a nice, peaceful stay. I'd recommend it.

Firstly - Blois is an excellent base for a trip to the Loire chateaux - especially Blois, Amboise, Cheverny, Chaneanceau, Chambord... Hôtel Du Bellay offers simple rooms at excellent price, staff are helpful, the location is good - close to bus stop for the chateaux trip and 8-9 minutes to the train station, also they have free wi fi that...

Cannot believe how many good reviews this hotel has ! We booked it on the reviews. Room was tiny (not a problem for us but could be one for certain people as no room at all) and disgusting !! I read the hotel was dusty, but that is not dust (which i can happily live with), it's purely disgusting !... More

We had a good stay at the Hotel du Bellay. The hotel was easy to find because there were signs throughout the town that lead us in the right direction. The room was clean. It wasn't anything special, but we just came to Blois to see the chateaux, so it wasn't really necessary to have a perfect place to stay.... More

The room was clean, the bed was good, with plenty of pillows, the windows had shutters so we slept until late and well. The bathroom was tiny and it was difficult to exit the shower, because the door was too narrow and the sink was next to the door, but that was not a problem. The toilet bowl had attached... More

I booked a room via email with this hotel due to the good reviews on tripadvisor and the cheap price. The hotel was quick to reply and even wrote to me in english. On the 12th of April I sent an email to cancel the accommodation as we would no longer be going to Blois (23 days notice). The hotel... More

The hotel was locked on our arrival, with only a phone number posted. Luckily the receptionist arrived and gave us the key to a room which was under construction. A change of rooms had us feeling grateful until we saw the rooms. The maintenance has been sadly neglected, there were holes in the bathroom floor, which also featured a mildewed... More

When I first checked into the hotel I was already less than impressed by the state of the place with it's shoddy construction (cheap plywood nailed on top of old wood and other makeshift "solutions" to the deteriorating building) and dark rooms, even considering it's a 1 star. I have stayed in other 1 stars and maybe I lucked out,... More

Having booked this hotel early in December and subsequently confirmed the booking by telephone some days later I was annoyed to find on arrival that we would be staying in another hotel some distance away. There was nothing by way of apology and the directions to the other hotel were almost impossible to follow. It took about twenty minutes walking... More
