“OK as a Stopover”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

The Hotel is located on the edge of Amboise in a quiet location with a large Novotel next door, and has secure gated parking. Rooms at the front overlook a vineyard. It is about 2 kilometers from the centre of Amboise, where parking can be difficult.

For a budget hotel, it is in good condition. Prices in July are at the upper end of budget, probably due to the location near the Loire. Rooms are small with very little storage space. So you probably would not want to stay more than a night or 2. It has air conditioning which is essential when it is hot. The shower provides very little privacy as it opens directly into the room.

Overall this is probably the best budget option around Amboise.

This hotel is one of the best budget hotels in the Etap/Ibis Budget group. It is not too far out of town. Plenty of free parking. Friendly service. Lovely quiet location. Rooms at the back of the hotel have a good view of Amboise. The air conditioning works well, as does the wifi. Highly recommended.

Great value for your money. Ensure you travel by car as it is not in city centre. You can have good dinner in Novotel nearby if you don't want to go out in evening. Clean rooms, reception is very nice.

Not an ideal location as it is quite a hike from the town centre but this is a modern, clean, air-conditioned hotel with approachable staff. Breakfast adequate but not great. The price is the major attraction for this hotel.

This is a great, clean little hotel just on the outskirts of Amboise. It's a short drive to town. The rooms were spotless and the hotel quiet. The views from the hotel (which is on a hill) are quite nice. The car park is free and gated at night.

Good hotel and value for money. The internet was a problem since for some strange reason when connected (free by the way) the internet kept me sending back to a French website and did not allow me to connect to my usual websites. It was a real pain using the internet. Breakfast was very very basic and the towel were bad. One thing about ETAP hotels: They must supply an extra towel for the floor since it is almost impossible to kept the floor dry around the shower.
