We stayed at hotel de France for two nights; booked for us by a cycling tour company. Comfortable and relatively spacious room. A trick to ensure pressure in the shower is to turn the hot water on full, first. Lovely couple who hosted us and were very attentive to our needs.

Really loved looking and cycling this magical chateaux region. The hotel was old oozing history and while the rooms were very small they were well priced as a budget hotel. We enjoyed the perfect location for tourists who had no rental car this was a good choice. 10 min walk lugging suitcase from train station in the summer heat was... More

I was not impressed with the outside look of this hotel but the inside was better than I expected. There were chandeliers in the entrance hall and pictures of various chateaux in the dining room, possibly reflecting past glories. Our room was basic but clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. It was dated, but it was reasonably priced... More

For my review, I will go ahead and make the disclaimer that I'm comparing this hotel with other 2 and 3-start hotels and I stayed in the room by myself. I was lucky to get a room in Blois this past Ascension Day weekend. They had a one room left at their off season rate and I took it. The... More

The hotel is in an excellent location, next to the Chateau. The hotel has seen better days and needs refurbishment. Our triple room was very dark and small, furniture outdated, but it was clean. The bathroom was quite big and clean as well. The staff at the reception was really nice and helpful. Continental breakfast with fresh croissants and coffee... More

The deal about this hotel is its strategic location. It's just a few steps from the Chateau. Our room was small and the furniture was outdated, but everything was clean.

This accommodation was part of our 2700kms tandem cycling holiday through France. A secure garage was provided for our tandem bicycle. This hotel is ageing and in need of refurbishment. Our room was substantial however decorated with well-worn furnishings - which crowded the room. The ensuite bathroom was small and cramped yet clean. The main attraction of this place is... More

We are pleased that you have appreciated our situation downtown and facing the castle and that you mention that we have a secure garage for bikes. Choosing our hotel , built in 1891, means that you like old buildings. Our clients like it as it is different from standard and unpersonnal hotels. It gives an unsual atmosphere, an aim, and...

The location is great, just next to the Chateau and central. It's a basic hotel, with a nice breakfast and very accommodating management. Nothing fancy, but adequate and the price is right. Am adding these words to meet the 200 minimum characters, for a post. TripAdvisor, lighten up!

My girlfriend and I spent here five nights during a trip to visit the castles. This hotel is a very very nice place that will take you back to the atmosphere of a true " belle epoque" building. The hall is beautiful, just like the dining room, and the view of the Blois Castle is divine. The staff is friendly... More
