Convenient location and handy for touring the Loire Valley and its chateaux. Within a short walking distance of the town centre. No. As a constructive suggestion, a hand rail in the bath would be useful!
Nice, modern, comfortable and well-located hotel. Good breakfast. The shower-bath was quite dangerous, being too high, narrow and with no grab-rail.
spa zone is really nice after a tiring day
We liked the central location and also the easy accessibility to the cycling routes around Blois. We found the duplex room arrangement useful and spacious.
Great position, very helpful staff, room and breakfast very good. Doesn't look great from the outside!
Great location, secure parking and a high standard throughtour the hotel. Breakfast was great but dinner a little disappointing in execution rather than menu choice. No complaints at all apart from the dinner which could have been better produced given the raw materials available
Good location near the centre of town (400 metres). Comfortable room which was clean and practical. Free minio bar is a great idea. Dinner was good - but the menu was a little limited. Room service breakfast was good value for money. Onsite parking was very convenient. The hotel was good value for the cost. Diasspointed at no porter assistance with baggage - but the provision of trolleys and easy access to the garage compensated a little. We had a problem with the bar fridge in one of the rooms (it did not work).
Hotel is located within easy walking distance of the historic old town, the Blois chateau, and many restaurants. The air-conditioned room was appreciated because it was quite hot while we were in Blois. Parking is available at the hotel for 7 Euro per day (about $10). This was a more convenient choice for us than public parking in the river-side parking lot across the street, which usually looked full from the hotel all the toward the old town. Note that breakfast at the hotel costs 14 Euro per person (about $20).
Close to centre of Blois
excellent position, close to station and chateau in Blois. Helpful staff, good breakfast.
The location was great with easy access to the Metro & train stations & there were some wonderful pattisseries close by.
it was in the loire valley close to the chateaus and had a family room that slept four at a good price. the landlady's english was better than my french and we made do.
Relatively well located, not far from the center of Blois. The hotel was okay, even though the surroundings were not particulairly romantic. Supertiny bathroom (a plastic cube put in the room), the bed was not very comfortable. The elderly Monsieur at the reception at night was not very sympa. All in all, considering other deals in Blois and other hotels we stayed in while travelling in France, I regretted having booked that one.
This is a cheap and cheerful hotel suitable for heavy sleepers that do not mind paper thin walls. The showers are suitable for a female size zero - but plenty of hot water
Lovely people, excellent breakfast. Central location. Would come again. Small room, very small bathroom-shower. Would be difficult to stay here for many days, due to small room and limited storage space, but for short stays it is an excellent value.
friendly staff room smelt musty
The owners are extremely friendly and helpful.
Just used it for sleeping. The hotel was fine. Staff was very friendly
Helpful staff, close to mororway and good directions on the hotel web site!
Leaving the hotel Blood stained sheet, poo on the bathroom wall, mould thick in the bathroom, rudeness of staff, location was misleading
The owners were absolutely wonderful. They helped us with recommendations for restaurants and travel arrangements. They were very accomodating in every way. We would love to go back. The slippery bathtub, which I fell in and pulled out of the wall.
Everyone at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. They gave great advice about restaurants and parking, and helped with driving directions on the day we checked out. The hotel has a great location very close to the chateau and within easy walking distance of shopping and restaurants. Not a luxury hotel but very clean and comfortable. Great value for the price.
Great location, helpful staff No tea or coffee making facilities in the room. Very thin walls, could hear any movement made in other rooms.
Excellent location No parking, although there was a reduction on the (cheap) 24 hour rate at the main Chateau parking - which was very busy
Superb atmosphere created by renovated old building Room 2 - en suite was cramped and open to the bedroom.
The location of the hotel is excellent. Overlooking both the Cathedral and the Chateau. Just few minutes walk to the centre of Blios. The owners - Annie & Jacky Barilleau are very nice and helpful. The breakfast @ Eur 7 pp was more for convinience. Better breakfast available right across from the hotel.
Great location and very helpful staff. Good value for money. Rooms quite old and in need of renovation, breakfast simple and not really good value.
Cheap and ok hotel. Toilet bowl is not good.
The owners were great. Any questions or concerns you had, they were always there, happy to help. The breakfasts were awesome as well served in a beautiful room The wireless connection was very weak in our room on the 4th floor and so I had to go to the lobby to go on the internet.
Very friendly and helpful owners and staff! Just down the street from the Chateau and parking nearby. Loved the ambiance of this historic building! Tea set in room. Lovely dining room. Does have small elevator. If you like modern and sleek and cookie-cutter, this hotel is not for you. It has modern conveniences in a typical, restored historic building.
Limited parking space.No internet point in the hotel.Maid storemed in our room at 9am on Sunday
The hotel room was very comfortable and the desk staff was very helpful. The breakfast was exceptionally good. Nothing.
Good size room and kept very clean. Good choice at breakfast and easy walking distance from centre. Rather gloomy and very long corridor to rooms! Building from outside very stark and on "business" road.
The room and bathroom was very clean and modern. The air conditioning system was unable to adequately cool the room.
I liked the cleanliness of my room and the friendliness of the hotel staff. I did not like the shower head. The water came out too weak, which took too long to finish a shower, and not a friendly user in adjusting the water temperature.
good,clean accommodation.staff very helpful.excellant parking.fairly easy access to town etc.
Very nice. Room is big compared to hotel room in Paris. I like it a lot. Will return to stay in this hotel if I ever come back to Blois.
Rooms are clean and comfortable but location is not great if you expect to be centrally located (10 minute walk to downtown - many stairs) I was very unhappy at the check-out. We did the check-out at 6:00am and they had charged us for the breakfast that only opened at 6:30. This was done automatically, which I think is unacceptable. The answer from the clerk was that guess must advised that they are leaving early. I did not think it was obligatory to eat breakfast and guess should not be charged automatically. In addition, we had advised the front desk. I thought that was a poor response. In addition, he was not able to credit us right away as he did not know how. We were in a hurry as we needed to get to the airport so we will need to see our credit bill to see if we received the credit.
The rooms were newly decorated. The rooms were so recently done that there was a very strong smell of paint. but we got a new room no problem.
the confort of the room, the parking facilities and the bathroom, very nice and clean. very good for the price.
well situated near the center + parking in the street the smell of oriental cooking in the corridor
This was a good base to explore Blois and surrounds. We only used the kitchenette for preparing cereal breakfast and tea and coffee but could have prepared a simple meal if we had needed too. Beds were clean and comfortable. The room felt a bit austere with an almost 1960's feel to the decore but it had everythink we needed. The free wifi was extremely slow and had to log in for almost every new page. The long dark corridor to our room was frankly spooky and the occassional loud traffic noise from the street were also minor detractions from this pleasant budget stay.
Friendly reception staff. Location close to city centre In-room kitchen Standard rooms were very very small. We were lucky to have a larger room available.
-close to the train station -close to the centre of town -quiet street -room furnishing a bit old -beds uncomfortable -doesn't feel super clean
The price and the proximity to the Loire à Vélo (we were biking from Blois to Angers) and the train station. Our room was not very clean and rather small; the bed was terrible (something your body does not appreciate much after pedaling the whole day), the breakfast was very expensive (9 Euros, when the standard in the valley is 7)
We found Apart city Blois very convenient to railway. It was aduquate for our needs, nearby a good supermarket. The staff were very helpful . Apartments are small but good value for the price From a cooking point of view an oven would have given more options
The flexibility, able to cook if wanted to. Clean and comfortable too. The beds were a little on the uncomfortable side and the curtains were very thin and this let in light all nikght long. Forced purchase of eye masks
the lack of internet facilities, phone booth( international calls cards are handy), tourist information;the absence of a receptionist when we arrived one hour ( 5p.m.)before the check-in period was due (6 p.m.)on sunday, when everything in town is closed and had to guess how to get in: by chance we had a phone card with which we called from the train station the number in the reservation confirmation; we also had to seek assistance from a floor neighbour for hot water, which was swicthed off
When you compare this with Mr. Bed or Premiere class, who both cost around € 39-42, it is a great deal. There is more room. There is the Kitchenette with a fridge! And a coffee machine!! Even if we don't want to cook, these 2 things were important. We paid €45 but they asked us €2 a day for wifi :-( € 2 a day for Wifi
Near the centre of Blois The rooms were acceptable but a little bleak because the ceilings were very high and there was an echo. Fine for a short visit but probably not for a long term stay
The rate doesn't go with the hotel. The chambermaid comes too early in the morning to clean the room.
calm, well equiped, godd approach of the hotel staff bathroom a little old and not very clean
Restaurant was open till late, I arrived later than expected and it was good to have a hot meal available. Couldn't find it at first. Better directions or include the GPS location so that it is easier to find.
convienient to the Chateaux Country
Very quiet, clean and friendly staff. Excellent if you have a car to go into the town centre, although there's also a bus that stops almost opposite the hotel. I will certainly go back to this hotel whenever I'm in the area. Cheap and good service.
Convenient locations to use when travelling. Free wi fi and reasonable restaurants with standard menus - not exciting but ok. The outside and inside need refurbishing - getting very 'tired' but this was true of all 3 Campaniles we stayed at on this visit - the other two were at Bergerac and Perigeux.
The rooms were clean and the service is very good even with the language barrier - thank goodness my 16 year old daughter was to hand!
The ladies who served us at dinner were absolutely excellent! It was very tired in the accomodation. Vent fan did not work in the bathroom, consequently there was water and steam damage to the walls and ceiling, affecting the tiles and grout - mouldy. In desparate need of rennovayion and decoation.
Room clean but much too small for 3 people. Hardly any storing capacity.
Value for money and good location
Family room extremely cramped. Facilities very basic. Breakfast average.
Easy to find, very helpful receptionist, free wireless very good. No aircon in the room, was very warm. Double bed difficult for a couple, prefer a qs bed, breakfast not very good - stale croissants.
Reception was excellent, friendly, helpful and efficient. Dirty habits of kitchen staff in public; ie. Picking his nose after serving petit dejuener.
heating instalation did not work
We had driven 1400 km when we arrived at the hotel. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were xclean and it was great to have a shower after the long travel.The beds were comfortable, the breakfast the next day was nice.
Basic but clean and comfortable. Good value. Free parking. I thought that it was nearer to the centre of Blois. It takes 45 mins to walk to the chateau. Only 5 mins by car to riverside car park.
Nice staff, colours, celan rooms.Fair price. Breakfast for 7 EU was poor and bad.No elevator
not too expensive, reasonably clean, breakfast was ok for french standards. good when travelling and need to spend one night boring interior and small room, near a busy road, outside town
All personnel was very kind and helpful.
Extremely nice man on the desk when we checked in and everyone we met after that was the same. Good value for money. Seemed quite far out of town so would probably only recommend it to people with their own car. Loads of free parking. Free internet with computer to use. Quite far out of town.
Reception was thoroughly helpful. Breakfast arrangements were entirely satisfactory, and good that food was available from 0700 hours. I found the room I had extremely tight on space, bathroom included, and I found the lighting level seriously inadequate
There is nothing good about this hotel! Hotel staff didn't speak English. There was a cigarette burn in our blanket. The room was meant to be non-smoking but it stank of smoke. It was cold, dark, dingy and as depressing as a jail. DON't book this hotel!!
It was a clean, comfortable and spacious room. We would certainly return to this hotel in future.
Very small bathroom. GGood for the price.
The rooms were tiny and shabby. The shower room was a plastic capsule containing a loo, basin and shower with curtain. It was very small. The bed was very uncomfortable and the traffic noise during the night was loud and constant. The hotel is built on motel lines and you could hear people walking around on the corridors and concrete stairs and also doors banging when they were shut.
Handy for overnight stop
Convenient access from the motorway. Two showers/toilets within our room.Value for money breakfast, children free. Very friendly staff.
very clean, friendly staff, located outside of Blois ideal for one night staying
Location was very good, easy access to shops, tourist attractions and transport. Very good value for money. Staff were also very welcoming and friendly. Probably the only thing we found a problem was no internet access at the hostel.
Friendliness and helpfulness of the owner. Excellent internet access. Good value for the money. Good mattress. Small rooms
we requested a room with bathroom but was not available, hotel staff proposed us another hotel without problem
Convenient and central. The room faced into an airshaft and so was quiet. The linens were crisply clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The place is falling apart. I was afraid we would fall through the bathroom floor - which was rotted out under the tiles, and most of the lightbulbs in the dining room were burned out. The hotel is justifiably inexpensive.
Very friendly helpful staff, central location, clean and well serviced, historic building.
The room was pleasant and the hotel has a real quirky charm. It is well located but is undoubtedly a budget hotel, so don't expect any more than that. The owner put me in a cheaper room than advertised on Booking and then tried to charge the extra £20! Stay was two days and the room was not serviced during this time. When mentioned to the owner, his reply was "you just can't get the staff". Owner also refused to take credit/debit card as he said the machine wasn't working. Strangely it "wasn't working" when I stayed there in September '08 either! He would only take cash payment. With this, the unserviced accommodation and the attempt to charge £20 more than the room price advertised on the hotel door, I would not return.
We enjoyed that it was not very expensive and that we had a room with our own bathroom. Two of our Mastercards were not accepted, the rooms were very dark even with all the lights on, and the closest parking spot was five or six blocks away
The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. The hotel is just on the edge of the centre and the place is very quiet. Also, there are some convenient restaurants in the proximity of the hotel. As the hotel is in a very old building, our room was not really big.
Hotel Du Bellay is just next door to the train station, and not far from the visitors' office also. it is very convenient for both getting there and getting around in the town. it was noisy...i guess the the noise proof is not very good
Among almost every review of this hotel you can find "Friendly staff" - and this is 100% true. We were offered to stay in a better room that we booked for the same price as the room was free, and also received a lot of good advices about the places to visit, public transport, etc. Also the room was clean and comfortable, the hotel is located in an old-looking house in the town centre, so we had a very pleasant stay
