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

Best Western in Chinon is centrally located with adequate parking at the back. We walked twenty minutes from the railway station, not an arduous exercise along flat streets. The desk clerk at the hotel was a charming young man who explained the location of the various sites and how to access the lift to the chateau, a fortress behind the... More

We enjoyed our one night here as part of a cycling tour. We had a room at the back - no view but wonderfully quiet. The room was bright, modern and showed elements of the old building - painted beams, sandstone wall. The bathroom was one of the best we have had - double basins and a large shower that... More

Stayed one night in this hotel in our Loire Valey trip. The buiding is old but the hotel is very cozy, well decorated. We have a double room at second floor and it was challenging to reach it for the first time because inside the hotel is kind of a labyrinth, but it was fun. The room was medium size,... More

Friendly staff, comfortable room and facilities, great location at the heart of the beautiful old city of Chinon. The hotel does have parking which is secure, private and free, but it is relatively small (which is why, I suspect, the hotel does not advertise it). Nice breakfast (yoghurts, cereal, Danishes, ham, cheese, fresh bread, boiled eggs, orange and apple juice,... More

We really enjoyed a recent visit to Chinon, and our stay at he Hotel de France certainly contributed. We had a lovely room with a Juliet balcony overlooking a lovely, leafy square. The room had recently been refurbished; the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was large and had particularly wonderful shower. Amenities were very good and wifi was fast.... More
