“Ideal for the Loire chateaus”
Reviewed 17 May 2012

The hotel is located 3km outside of Amboise by a round about on a main road so it suffers from traffic noise for much of the day.
Amboise is a great little town; vibrant with cafes and restaurants of all types and the Chateau and a huge Sunday morning market; it is a good base for visiting the Loire chateaux.
The hotel is a typical Ibis hotel, clean, adequate bedrooms with Multi channel TV. The restaurant is better than found at most Ibis hotels but there was only one restaurant in operation during our stay. There is a terrace of an outdoor drink or given good weather a pleasant meal.
There is a large area of grass for kids to explore and a small playground.
The staff were very helpful and friendly and staying there over a weekend with a discount offered good value.

A little bit out of the city. Not recommended if you are without a car.
At first we've had a problem with our room. It had cigarette smoke all over it. We requested the receptionist to allocate us in a different room. She was quite kind and reallocated us in a room with no cigarette traces.
The hotel seemed not to have elevators, so try to have a room at the ground floor.

Room Tip: Ask for a ground room.

We stayed at Ibis Amboise for one night on our way from Bordeaux to Paris. We chose it due to good experiences we have had with Ibis hotels in other parts of the world - they are usually well priced, clean and in good locations. So how does this Ibis compare.... well it is well priced, the room and hotel was generally clean (however it looks like it is probably in need of a refurbishment at some point in the near future), but the location is not ideal. The hotel is located on the outskirts of an Industrial Park.... now in saying that our window overlooked a pretty lake and trees, however I think if you looked over the other side of the hotel you would see a office building or a factory! Also, you need a car as you are a 5-10 minute outside the centre of Amboise.

We were only in Amboise for the one evening and took advantage of the laundry mat in the nearby shopping centre and then went into the centre of Amboise for both dinner and breakfast the next morning. It is a pretty town and lovely to walk around.Therefore, we limited our time at the Ibis - however, I think if you don't mind where you are staying and have a car, this is a clean, standard hotel for a stop over.

Overall, it was fine for what we were after, however being on the outer skirts of the city and in an industrial park it did surprise us a little. Apart from the location, it was clean and comfortable and good for our one-night stop over in the lovely Amboise.

We stayed in the Ibis Amboise some 20 years ago when we thought it was very clean and good value. We were disappointed with our recent stay. The hotel, although ideally situated for the town looked a little "tired" and we thought the food in the restaurant was both poor and and expensive.

We originally had reservations at an ETAP Hotel in Amboise. We arrived at the ETAP, walked in the lobby, turned around and walked out. We wouldn't even set our luggage down. We then found the Ibis and were lucky enough to get the last two rooms. It may not be the Ritz but it was clean, comfortable and very affordable. It had a small bar and restaurant. The beer was cold, the wine was decent and the food was remarkably good. The staff at the desk were actually happy to help with anything we needed. They were especially happy to cancel our ETAP reservations for us. The hotel was only a short drive to the center of Amboise, maybe 8 to 10 minutes. After our experience at this hotel we searched out Ibis hotels wherever we went and we were never disappointed.

Room Tip: All the rooms are about the same. You may want to avoid rooms next to ice machines and stairways.

Normally Ibis are on the edge of town, the rooms are functional and clean and the rate is quite good.
This hotel is 5kms from town, expensive & the worst Ibis we've stayed in. Carpets are awful, bathroom old and dirty and the location is just awful. It's in a really ugly industrial site, right next to a rubbish dump that you can still smell at the hotels front doors.

A smart and friendly budget hotel close to key historic sites in the Loire Valley. What made our stay was the friendly welcome and site seeing advice from the reception staff. The restaurant is simple but pleasant and the food won't break your budget.

Room Tip: For peace and quiet go upstairs away from the roads.
