This small hotel is well located - just a short walk to the castle and town center. The staff was friendly but only one person spoke English and we only saw her once. . However the rooms were quite small, and the wifi really only worked in the common area. I would not recommend this hotel for older people or... More

Enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Chaptal, with our genial hosts. This seems to be a small family business, the young lady that greeted us was helpful and had a good grasp of English, which helped us immensely, as we have just a small knowledge of French...we thought it was more until we got to France....so nice to have someone...

Stayed here three nights and was very happy with the location.....close to the town centre and within walking distance of a few local highlights. Amboise is a lovely town, however parking near the hotel is a challenge as it doesn't have its own parking and there are only a few free long term places a street or two away. My... More

I'll start off by saying I mostly look for hotels that are clean, in a safe area, offer a decent breakfast and have good wi-fi. This hit the mark on all of those except the wi-fi. It worked great in the common area, actually lightning fast and better than anywhere I've had in Europe and maybe even faster than I... More

Good location in Amboise - just off a pedestrian street near the chateau and restaurants. Reception staff was very helpful when we arrived, but not apparently around all the time - but admittedly was there when we needed him. Our "compact" double room wasn't great - only a small high window - so not very tempting to linger in during... More

We stayed for one night in this hotel while hiking in Loire Valley. Location is very good and staff is pleasant, but rooms are very small, not very clean and you can hear the from the stairs. The electricity in the room shut down and the hanger in the bathroom fell from the wall once I placed a towel on... More

It wasn't our first stay at that hotel - we still like it! Ideally located with free public parking just 100 m away, all sights in Amboise within 5 minutes walk. Rooms are modest (as priced), but clean and quiet. Very good buffet breakfast, fast Wi-Fi, very helpful and friendly staff (thank you Natalie!). Guests are allowed to use microwave,... More

We stayed here for three nights while touring in the Loire Valley. On the plus side, we found it easy to park free about 1/2 mile away in several public lots. The hotel is well located and within walking distance of many restaurants, shopping, the river and the Royal Chateau. The breakfasts were typically French, but adequate and the management... More

We, two ladies, booked the Chaptal for two nights in May. We were given room 3 which is on the first floor (reception is on the ground floor), there is no elevator. We had two twin beds, tv, phone, the room was very small. The even smaller bathroom had a glassed-in shower and was very good. Wifi was free but... More
