happy at ChinonPosted Mar 26, 2012
Pros: Atmosphere and location
Location: central Chinon - great for Loire valley exploration
Lovely members of staff who gave us lots of time and useful local information. very convenient location - free parking in car park opposite. Ask to stay in the maison bourgeois or the main old hotel.

Hospitality at its best.Posted Nov 20, 2011 on Hotels.com
The staff was very helpful. They have tons of information about the surrounding area, including restaurants in town and various sights nearby. The lobby had free coffee and tea, which was a nice bonus from a small hotel.

Basic hotelPosted Oct 5, 2011 on Hotels.com
Very basic hotel,with no elevator and small rooms.Tight winding stair case to rooms.Had to schlep luggage up 3 flights. This hotel is not for people with heart conditions or with any luggage.Parking in public lot across the street.Close to city center and sites.No air conditioning,only large widows with no screens to keep out mosquitoes.Hotels doors lock at night.Must insert room key in slot in adjacent door to enter.Hotel staff does not inform you of this handy feature until you go out to dinner and then try getting back in at night.

Welcoming hotel in centre of Chinon overlooking main square and riverPosted Aug 21, 2011
We enjoyed our stay in this hotel . Coming from Yorkshire we were surprised to be welcomed by a friendly lady from Manchester! The room (in an annexe) overlooked the pleasant garden at the back of the hotel which can be used for picnics . We didn't eat breakfast in the hotel but used the tea and coffee making facilities in the lobby which also contained lots of information about Chinon and the surrounding area .

This is a decent 2 star hotel in good location in Chinon. Not much charm in rooms or common areas, but the staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good. We were put on the 3rd story and had to climb 56 steps to get to our room. Not for the faint hearted or anyone who has difficulty with stairs.

In the center of Chinon, we absolutely loved this hotel. Recently renovated, with spacious clean rooms and good service. Great value for money!

2 star hotel with extremely helpful staffPosted May 16, 2011
It is a 2 star hotel not very well maintained and room is not very clean - thick dust found on headboards and elsewhere. Towels are thin and greyish. Beds are sagging and blankets are thin. We had to use the bed covers to keep warm. The only window in the room is the bathroom window which has rotten frame and one could smell mildew for it opens to a enclosed space with liter. Also One has to walk up open air stair case and corridor to reach room. It is extremely inconvenient and dangerous when raining as the stairs becoming very slippery. The saving grace is the hotel location is quite good at the edge of Chinon which is convenient to visit chateaux at the west side of Tours in Loire Valley. It is a better choice than staying at Tours in our opinion. Hotel staff is also extremely helpful. They brought out laptops for us to access internet though the connection is kind of weird and not very stable. We dont mind to stay there for the purpose of visiting nearby chateaux but we are still disappointed by the conditions of the hotel. We do not expect any charm but at least a clean room with adequate facilities - it lacks both.
