“Good location and good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

We stayed one night at the Sohotel. We found it well located overlooking the river and within a short walk of the castle. Our room overlooked a courtyard at the back and a church with rather loud bells but they stopped in the evening and we had a very quiet night. The room was small but comfortable. The staff were friendly and everything went smoothly. The internet was fine in our room on the 2nd floor - a good signal and decent download speed.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This hotel is very good value for money, with exceptionally welcoming staff. We chose it for it's location, within easy walking distance to the things to see, including the chateau, wine tasting events and restaurants. It also has free parking next to it and is located down the road from the tourist office, a very useful source of information!

The rooms are fairly basic, but in a good condition- we had an excellent shower, a selection of drinks and the free wifi worked brilliantly (we were in room 7 on the top floor). Breakfast had a selection of fresh pastries and bread, cereal, coffee, orange juice and a selection of other hot drinks. I thought it was perfectly adequate but it is not included in the price of the rooms so you could choose to eat in one of the nearby cafes instead.

Views of the Loire......from a window overlooking a busy road and roundabout.
Musty smell on entry
Internet connections in room.......only if I sat on the toilet in the bathroom and no bandwidth. My wife was working whilst we were on the move so being connected was important. Initially no response from hotel. " too busy".
There are much better options in Saumur.

The hotel overlooks the Loire, there is free parking nearby, and shops, bars and restaurants are only a short walk away.
The rooms are freshly refurbished in a modern minimalist style and very clean and comfortable.
Breakfast is simple but adequate, there was a hospitality tray in the room and the WiFi worked well.

The rooms have been redecorated in zingy, zesty colours which brightens them given their small sizes. The refurb has not extended to our bathroom which still looked dated. There is a great free car park alongside the Loire opposite the hotel. They made a room available for us to lock up our bikes which was such a blessing. The 2 receptionists were friendly, most helpful and accommodating with good recommendations and local knowledge

this hotel is right by the Loire in the middle of Saumur - perfect for exploring the town on foot. It was easy to park nearby and the staff were very welcoming. The room looked as though it had been decorated only recently and was all red and white. THe bathroom was well fitted and the shower was huge! It also had tea and coffee in the room. We had a deluxe room that overlooked the Loire so would recommend asking for this - only 10 euros more than a standard room. I would also recommend having the breakfast which is 8 euros each and has the usual croissants, bread, orange juice etc

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

I booked this hotel based on other good reviews and was not disappointed. The hotel has the personal touch that many places lack these days. The rooms have been thoughtfully decorated and have high ceilings and modern furnishings. The location is fantastic and a very short stroll into town - the Saturday morning market in Saumur is not to be missed. Breakfast is simple but the quality of the bread and pastries very nice. I think this is great value and a good bet for a stay on the Loire.

Room Tip: It's well worth paying an extra few euros for a view of the Loire
