We were very pleased with our room. This was our second Etap hotel and it had similar standards-compact,clean and they provided a good breakfast. We also had a room with a view of the Loire Valley & the Amboise chateau. We also had a treat with colourful hot balloonists floating by- great entertainment value.

This hotel is great, it's clean with air-conditioning. Bathroom is a bit small but I am fine with that.
Staff is friendly even though she speak little English, tried her best to communicate with us when we ask her for help.
Not located at the city centre which explains for the quietness and tranquility of the hotel. But is not too far to drive to the city centre and chateau chenonceau.

Being faced with a return trip by car to CDG Airport in Paris from Lourdes, Mrs. Brainiac and I decided to split the return trip into two days with a stopover somewhere near the Chateau de Chenonceau, which is our favorite Chateau in the Loire Valley. Amboise is pretty close to the Chateau and we found an Etap Hotel thanks to TripAdvisor.

This was our second stay at an Etap Hotel, the first being in Bayonne. Etap is a standardized budget hotel with no frills and is geared to those who are not much interested in the hotel ambience, lobbies, restaurants or bars. Because Mrs B and I are at a hotel primarily to sleep, we don’t much care about the add-ons.

Mrs. Brainiac again noted to me on arrival that the décor and size of the room could be mistaken for one of those test-tube bedroom chambers on a Japanese overnight bullet train. While it was comfortable it was also eerily compact: the bunk bed over the adult bed for kids gives the impression of sleeping in a cave.

The staff was friendly and accommodating even though we didn’t have to check in with them: instead we used a credit card at an automat in the entrance and got our room code. For a utilitarian overnight stop or an inexpensive base camp, Etap fits the bill. The location is just okay, being too far from the center of town to walk, but it is also very quiet.

In short, Etap was just what we were looking for and what we expected.
