Bellevue
Ranked #19 of 25 Hotels in Amboise
Reviewed 6 July 2013

After a week in a shabby apartment in Paris, the Hotel Bellevue was a lifesaver. Great location steps from the medieval section of town and the chateau, with a great staff and lovely views of the Loire. Short walk across the bridge to Le Snackers for a picture perfect view of Amboise and a restoring gin-and-tonic or Chinon blanc.

For us, this was the perfect location. We rented the family suite which was 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths. The views from the larger room was very lovely. The view from the other room was not so great but that was fine. The elevator was big enough to hold multiple people and multiple bags at the same time (not always the case in older European buildings). The front desk staff was very gracious and always very helpful. Parking was very easy. There was only 1 night of our 4 night stay that we had to park a block away. All the other times (multipe trips from the hotel), we were able to find parking within half a block of the hotel. The parking was free to boot!! You could also walk to anything and everything in Amboise. The main street was about 2 blocks away. The walk to Sainte Denis church was an easy walk (though it is steep when walking up to the doors of the church). The bridge and the river were just across the street from the hotel but there was no noise from the travelling public that we noticed. The grounds for the French Market was just down the street. The only drawback to the hotel is the 9 euro charge for breakfast per person. It is lovely to have the option and we used it the first morning we were there but the price is high for what is offered - cheese, bottomless coffee and tea, yogurt, fruits, pastries, cold cuts, and spreads. If you get in late, I propose taking advantage of the breakfast in the morning (which must be reserved the night before) or making sure you plan where to go in the morning. The patisserie, Patisserie Bigot, is a nice place for breakfast just a few blocks away on Rue Nationale.
More so Amboise, than the hotel itself, is a teriffic homebase to visit the chateaus in the area as well. Where the Hotel Bellevue is located, it is very easy to get to Chenonceau, Villandry, and the numerous wineries in the area. If we visit the Loire Valley again, we will likely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a chateau view and/or river view. You may hear the fireworks at night but it is...

I stayed with my daughter and two grandchildren at the Bellevue for two nights in June. We found the hotel to be extremely convenient for both walking about Amboise and driving to nearby vineyards and chateaux. We stayed in a family "suite" that had two bedrooms + two baths. The accommodations were very comfortable. I would recommend the Bellevue for any visitor to the Amboise area who wants a very comfortable, convenient, and picturesque place to stay. Plus the price is right.

We loved our stay at Hotel Bellevue. The family style room was actually 2 rooms combined with 2 toilets and 1 shower. The staff was great at accommodating out surprise guest last minute. The wifi was great, location perfect for walkers or drivers. We can't wait to come back once the wine lounge is in! My choice for future stays. The beds were super comfy!

Room Tip: We were in room 32.

The location of this hotel couldn't be better for a stop off in Amboise. Our room (7) overlooked the Loire and was minutes from the square where all the restaurants are. The room was contemporary and newly refurbished with an outside decking patio - just a shame we arrived too late to enjoy it. The public areas especially the corridors and stairways looked very dark and dated with maroon carpets and dark wood but don't let that put you off. Room was €110 plus €9/person for a good quality continental breakfast.

Situated right by the main bridge in Amboise, traffic noise is an issue if like me you are put in the room overlooking it. I should have asked to be moved, but after a day cycling I just crashed. The room was clean & had everything you would expect, I was surprised the hotel didn't have a restaurant. It's only a very short walk from the main restaurant street, so it's not a problem. Breakfast was mediocre, at best. The orange juice looked as old as the hills. Would I stay again, yes if I was desperate.

Room Tip: Not near main road.

Old Belle-Vue reviews made the hotel appear tired and worn BUT a good value. The price point was good so we choose the hotel. We were very surprised to enter a modernized, tastefully decorated lobby. Our renovated room was immaculate and painted in a soothing color. We asked for a room with a view of the Loire river. In the evening, the vista was beautiful. An orange setting sun provided a lovely photo op. The only complaint was the lack of a minifridge and the lingering smell of fresh paint.
The management is in the process of updating their website.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.
