This place is very affordable and within walking distance of all of Amboise's city-center sites. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast offered up a decent variety of both "sweet and salty" foods (as the front desk clerk put it). As with most things, you get what you pay for. The facility is like a dormitory. Our room had a bit of a stale odor, but we opened up the windows to bring in the fresh air. The furnishings are low quality and remind you that you're wallet isn't taking a hit. The wifi connection is terrible in the rooms. Also, the hotel closes at a certain hour in the evening, and they shut a door to the common area (where the wifi connection is strongest). You'd run into other guests huddled against the door at night with their mobile devices trying to land a signal. If you're on a tight budget it's a fine accommodation. I would spend a few extra dollars and upgrade the next time round.
