This hotel was the closest to the historical sites and the castle of any place I have ever stayed. Staff was very pleasant and they even had sort of a terrace where I could sneak a smoke, glory be! Hotel is in very old, historical building and you will have to do the stairs, which are also very old and... More

The hotel was very comfortable and the staff were very helpful. We stayed two nights in a room overlooking a quaint and very popular old square. We used the garage parking behind the hotel. There is public parking behind the hotel, but you should check on the hours and days you have to feed the "meter." There are restaurants serving... More

A very well placed hotel, especially for eating out as it's extremely central. The hotel has its own parking (€10) and very welcoming staff. Rooms are airconditioned and very comfortable, and breakfast is included in the price.

Excellent location in heart of medieval Chinon. Outside square shared with 3 other establishments serving food & small eats. Booked family room which was modern, well equipped with fridge, kettle, toaster, microwave & electric rings. Situated only 50m from the elevator to the Castle. Breakfast excellent with large choice of cheeses, eggs, jams, hams, juices and Tarte Tatin. Evening meals... More

I was there on a biking trip through the Loire, getting into town (the way I was directed) took some doing to find this. Once there, its a great, centrally located spot. Staff was helpful and courteous. The rooms are dingy and small, but clean. For a one or two night stay in Chinon, not a bad choice

Located in a small square which has seating for a few restaurants. Parking is onsite and around the back and like most car parking in Europe space is tight. All staff at the hotel were friendly and provided excellent advice on surrounding sites and restaurants and helped with reserving restaurants for dinner. Our room was on the top floor and... More

Arriving by bike takes a bit of negotiation as the bike parking is via a garage at the back and the first stopping point is in an extremely busy square. However, once this is sorted out the rooms are clean and the receptionists were very helpful. The rooms can seem noisy due to the activity in the square.

Stayed at this hotel in late May this year (21st, 22nd and 23rd). The hotel was very good and made very tasteful modern use of an old building without loosing any of its charm. The room was fine, lacked nothing and overlooked the square. We also had a fine view of Henry 2nd's fortress that overlooks the old town. As... More

Highly recommend both this hotel & Chinon itself. The staff are friendly & helpful, the hotel in an excellent situation with plenty of pretty streets to wander, enough to keeep one entertained for several days. However, BE WARNED, at the nearby KITCHEN/DECOR STORE TO BE AVOIDED. English Speakers are treated with suspicion, followed indiscreetly, & insulted. My 70yr old very... More

As an interval between many B&B's this was a great find and a great mixture of typical good modest French hotel and American familiarity. An excellent value with the most perfect location. The front desk is manned by several ladies who are very helpful with quite excellent English language skills making it very easy even for those of us with... More
