Best Western Le Vinci Loire Valley
Ranked #10 of 25 Hotels in Amboise
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Beautiful hotel, well equipped , and well maintained. We booked in, went outside to bring in the bags and was pleasantly surprised to have the counter attendant help take the bags to the room. Rooms are quite spacious with tasteful decor and furniture and fittings in excellent condition. Room is climate controlled which is extremely quite. Bathroom is well designed and had separate room for toilet. Hotel is well located with plenty of off road parking. Having a elevator it made moving our large collection of bags a breeze and as mentioned before, help was on hand to assist. We would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here because after many trips to France and many more foreign trips, I wanted amenities like toilets and climate control that came near what I’m accustomed to as an American.

The staff is great, Stephanie is charming, accommodating, and speaks fluent English. The air conditioning works, you do not need to back out of the shower, and they have an ice machine.

The back patio/garden is great for a light meal...quiet and relaxing.

It is not “conveniently” located unless you like to walk (about 1 ½ miles to the center of Amboise) or have a car. I do enjoy walking, but even for me the two a day trudge back up the hill became trying. Amboise is not an especially delightful town. Therefore, I recommend this hotel only if you have a car and wish to visit other chateau and towns along the Loire.

Nevertheless, it made for a very enjoyable stay.

We stayed here for two nights while we visited sights in the area. This was our first visit to Amboise and we were unsure where to stay. We were pleased with our choice-- the hotel is clean, everything in good condition, and the staff helpful.

About 30 minutes car ride from the saint Pierre de corps train station where you can rent an automatic car, Amboise is the center of the Loire valley to base your travels to loche, Blois, Chencenoux, tours and the chateau region.

While some 3 minutes east of downtown Amboise, the hotel is clean, nicely appointed with king bed option and has a $13 euro pp breakfast option. You'll want a car to go around the region even though the train is offered, its not at all convenient. The hotel offers free parking

Carrefour city is the local supermarket downtown and LeClerc is the super target with food about 6 minutes drive from the hotel.

The front desk staff speaks English and are very eager to help, and they do. Check out manuerva the restaurant for a treat right in Amboise.

The hotel staff is onsite from 7 AM to 11 PM, and the free parking is open till 11 PM, after its key card access only.

Fridge in room is stocked like a mini bar, so consider requesting they empty it if that is your wish.

For the AAA rate, a strong clean option to consider.

Room Tip: Request the king if you wish

We stayed for three night and were very happy. The hotel has large modern rooms and very comfortable. Everything works, including tea/coffee in rooms. Excellent service from the staff. Good free parking and easy access to the major roads in and out of town.

The location is good and bad. If you are using the hotel as a base for the Loire, it is a great location, with quick access to major routes. If you want a hotel for Amboise itself, then a poor location as the hotel is on the edge of town. It is a 30 minute walk into the town centre - the walk in is easy as it is gradual downhill all the way, bout of course the walk back is difficult - there is always the option of a taxi back or driving and finding a park.

With an advance purchase discount, this hotel I very good value.

We stayed one night as part of our six day tour of the Loire. The hotel was just outside the town, only a 20 minute walk downhill. The hotel was particularly clean, well furnished and very good value. The breakfast was very good and the staff helpful, attentive and pleasant. A good place to stay

This is a very new hotel, clean, modern, excellent room and bathroom facilities, (though no view), quiet, ample electrical outlets, good wifi, a very friendly reception staff that speak excellent English. The breakfast was one of the best I had in France this time...had hot meats, tiny crepes, eggs, plus a good assortment of the usual breads, cheeses, cereals, yogurts. The coffee was very good. However, this hotel is a good mile out of the center of town, without much on the walk of any interest. No close restaurants. That said, they offer a fairly decent dinner to be brought to your room...I had the beef bourguignon that came with garlic green beans and a potato gratin, plus a lovely tarte tatin (apple tart) all for 14€! Plus a half bottle of local (and good) wine for 8€...i paid that much for a glass elsewhere. Quite a good dinner really, and after sightseeing all day in the Loire Valley, nice not to have to go out. The parking is ample and free on the hotel's grounds. A nice plus. I stayed two nights, as it was a reasonable price and a good location to explore the Loire Valley in both directions.

Room Tip: I think all rooms are about the same.
