Having stayed in Chinon before, we wanted a hotel in the centre of the old town, and this was it! Our room overlooked the square with all the (busy) restaurants and bars, but was not noisy at all. The hotel is a quaint old building, sympathetically renovated, and looked freshly decorated throughout. The staff are very friendly and helpful. So... More

Great hotel right in the heart of the town square, with bars and eating places all around, the area becomes all pedestrian in the evening and on Sunday there is a great food market - this is a brilliant location for a hotel. The rooms were large and the bathroom was good, the shower was 'state of the art' (a... More

Friendly, clean and in a very central location. Right by the fortress lift and surrounded by bars and bistro's it is an ideal place to explore Chinon from. Had a very pleasent stay for a couple of nights.

Clean rooms, updated baths, good breakfast, helpful staff. Great location in the town square, just below the chateau. Parking is behind hotel, free from 1900 until next morning. Rooms were modern and recently updated which was in contrast to the "classic" appearance of the hotel and lobby.

We spent four nights there last week. Very helpful, staff, nice room, and terrific location. I would have given it a 5th star except for a very annoying buzz in the air-conditioning system that went uncorrected. Parking is not included, but is available free - overnight anyway - right next door.

Well-placed in the centre of town, a few steps to shops and restaurants, a small hotel, rather sweet. We found it expensive considering it was January and the place was empty, but I expect it is well worth it in summer. Friendly and cheerful service.

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.
