“Hotel Alcyon”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

A very pleasant hotel near the railway station (not noisy). Looks a disaster from the outside, but inside very well maintained and impeccably clean. Most helpful and friendly host made us feel very welcome. 10 minutes walk to the banks of the glorious Loire. Room tiny but functional and clean. Did not have breakfast, but saw what was on offer. Looked fabulous. Highly recommended, inexpensive accommodation.

This little hotel is ideal for a local area base or stopover at Saumur. The owners are more than friendly and our room had recently been smartly refurbished and was clean and bright. The City Centre is a ten minute walk and has many excellent restaurants and some lovely old areas. The walk is across two big bridges over Le Loire and is a pleasure in itself. The Alcyion is right on the main railway line and some trains to pass at night. This did not bother us but is worth knowing about.

Room Tip: Easy to find as right by the bridge over Le Loire.

Stayed just one night on route but would be very happy to return on the next visit. Owners were very warm and welcoming. Rooms very pleasant, spotlessly clean and quiet (double glazed) with very comfortable beds. The hotel was also inexpensive and has the added bonus of secure parking. Near the railway station on the north bank of the Loire, the city centre
is just a 10 minute walk away. Breakfast fresh and enjoyable, and a very reasonable price. Very happy to recommend this hotel

Although initially concerned regarding noise as the hotel is close to the station we had no reason to be, the rooms are very quiet with double windows. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Secure parking was excellent and a very welcomed to keep the motorcycle secure. A short walk, 15 mins, gets you into the old part of Samur. Well worth a visit and the Alcyon is a great place to stay.

This was the final hotel on our Loire cycling tour arranged by bicyclette-verte and the best of the tour. The rooms were recently refurbished and clean, the beds were comfortable and the breakfast hearty. All that topped off by very warm and homely hosts. My only problem would be the noise from the nearby train tracks which is not too severe given that the owners installed an extra window to block out the sound. The location is good but not prime - being a ten minute walk from the centre and two minutes walk from the train station. Overall I recommend a stay here.

We were a family of three staying in a triple room. The room was well appointed with comfortable beds, plenty of towels and a lovely, large, newly renovated bathroom. Everything was clean and crisp, and the view was spectacular! The owners were very helpful and friendly, offering to watch our bags so we could explore the town more on the day we departed....at no additional charge. The hotel is within walking distance from the train station and, even with our heavy backpacks we had no difficulty. Saumur is a beautiful town, easily accessible on foot by walking across the bridge. We found a spectacular flea market there on Saturday, offering a wealth of goods and lots of local restaurants. If we are lucky enough to travel there again, we will definitely stay at Hotel Alcyon again.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor, last room to the right. It does face the street, but even with the window...

The rooms are nicely decorated, really clean and confortable as is the bathroom.
Easy to get to with a secure parking which is quite convenient.
An easy and lovely walk to get to Saumur old town. And seeing the castle from a distance from the hotel and getting closer to the historic center. Choices of restaurants around if you don't want to get too far. And the friendliness of the owner. They are quite knowledgable of the area and always happy to help.

A great stay and I would come back anytime !
