Ibis Budget Blois Centre

Reviewed July 14, 2012

The standard etap is a guarantee. A blois in particular is a new room with improved comfort. A short walk from the center is convenient for sightseeing.

This hotel is just outside the city centre of Blois. There is nothing exceptional about it. It is very basic, very small, with ensuite toilet and shower, and a TV. That's all.

But it is clean, modern, quiet when I was there. Staff were helpful and pleasant. There was a little bit of minor damage to the room, but nothing that interfered with me enjoying my stay.

Most of the buses in Blois can be caught from about 75 metres away and the train station is a five minute walk.

I would prefer to pay a little less for a basic place like this, but I was too lazy to shop around to see if cheaper places existed in Blois, so I shouldn't complain.

I found Blois to be a very pleasant place, especially hiking along the Loire and the Saturday morning markets.

We were in this hotel in September 2011. We stopped on two nights. We wanted to look the region of Blois and searched cheap hotel in this region. The hotel is near to railway station, for us it was important. If to go from station it is necessary to go down from a hill, back in a hill. Chateau de Blois also is nearby, minutes 5 on foot, under lock walls a bus stop, buses on region whence go. A room small, pure. We had two beds, the small table at a window, a chair, clothes isn't present a clothes case, but there is a hanger on a wall. A toilet room small, pure. We had a shower. On a door in a room the coded lock, a code inform at registration, very conveniently, it is not necessary to hand over and take a key. We only spent the night in a room, went on region in the afternoon. Breakfasts didn't order, ate products from a supermarket. The supermarket is behind the railway, it can be passed on the bridge. It is hotel the house-keeper of a class, but approaches to spend the night to steam of nights. We remained are happy.

My Mom and I stayed here for three nights. It was very clean and an excellent location. It is an easy walk to the castle and also to the train station. We found Blois to be the perfect place to base ourselves and go on day trips to the various castles. We did not eat the breakfast here.

If you need a cheap hotel to visit the charming town of Blois, and if you are 3 people in total, this is teh best value for money hotel. ideally located in central Blois, 3 people will pay 46 euros per night all together! No fuss, just what you need. CLose to many restaurants, you will have no problem to eat. Breakfast is quite limited, but again you have numerous patisseries around, so no issue again. Only issue is parking, not available from teh hotel, but a public one is nearby.

Room Tip: All are the same!

I recommend a lot this hotel. The staff is very sympathetic, the room is very clean ( the shower with leds is nice) and the breakfest is awesome(only 4,90€). Confortable and cheap, what else do you want only for one night?

An ideally situated hotel just behind the Blois Chateau, with parking available opposite (free between 6pm and 9am ) It's a budget hotel so don't expect luxury but it is perfectly adequate. Also you can walk to all the main sights of Blois and to restaurants, bars etc.
