We recently stayed for two nights and found the hotel to be well located for exploring Chinon. The junior suite was clean, with a comfortable bed and had nice views overlooking the town square. There is also a nice private roof terrace where guests can enjoy a drink in the sun. One complaint was that the power to the room... More

Right in the lovely little town centre, this was a great find, overlooking the outdoor restaurants in the little square, great views of the old buildings & castle, and close to shops, markets, and the river. Room had a little balcony, and everything was fitted out really well. Whole place was spotless! Staff really lovely - genuinely helpful, and taking... More

We booked a junior suite which was up one level from the entrance. The room was very comfortable and there was plenty of room. I would not have wanted to carry luggage to a higher level. There is a small garage where we were able to lock our bikes each night and the hotel stored our luggage both on the... More

Brilliant location in a fabulous little town. Our room was on the 3rd floor so on the plus side: terrific views over the rooftops of the town, over the town square and of the castle. On the down side: no lift and very steep winding staircases, and a fairly small room with shower but no bath. Also as the room... More

The Hotel de France is right in thee middle of old Chinon ville, just a minute's walk to the stairs or escalator to the Castle and a nice square with bars and restaurants. Our room was clean and a reasonable size, with air-con, TV & kettle etc. There is a garage onsite which we only found out about on departure... More

We have stayed at this hotel previously but this time it was only for one night. Love the position in a nice town square and we were not disturbed by cafe owners putting out their tables and chairs.One of the things we like about France is the outside eating and drinking. The reception area and stairs still retain much character.... More

The rooms are small but clean and nice bedding. The shower was good. The receptionist was so polite and helpful, one of the best we have had on our three week trip of Europe, You use the public car park which is just behind the hotel so no problem

I chose the hotel because it looked very classic French. And it was well maintained. Also it overlooked the square where we had a delightful midday meal just outside the door of the hotel. And the next day we met our French niece and family for a long lunch in the sunny square drinking a delightful rose vin. I felt... More

I would describe this hotel as warm and cozy. The front desk staff were polite and helpful. The hotel room was clean but nothing spectacular. It's an old hotel, so we could hear everything. I had a little trouble with the stairs, they are quite steep. Overall, the hotel was lovely.
