“Great hotel - in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 15 January 2010

Stayed at this hotel in October for 2 nights - its located a little way up the hill from the river, maximum 5 minute drive.
Loved the place, it had a really nice feel to it. The room was a good size (with a comfy bed) as was the bathroom. The only bad thing with the bathroom was that it did get very steamy very quickly with not a heap of ventilation.
We had breakfast at the hotel both days, a little overpriced, but I fell in love with the jams there. So delicious!
The town of Amboise is absolutely gorgeous, one of the hightlights of the trip. Any visit to the Loire Valley must include a stay in Amboise.
We thought about extending our stay another night, but had to move on to Tours to catcht the train back to Paris.
Would definitely recommend this hotel to friends/family and will try to get back there again some day.

Hotel Vinci is a Best Western hotel in Amboise; it is a 3 star hotel, but I would rank it about 2.5 stars compared to US hotels. The hotel is clean, and quiet, with parking, which is what you would expect of a Best Western in the US. Hotel staff is helpful and efficient. The short driving distance from downtown makes it quiet, and it is all non-smoking. There are occasional signs on the road to lead you there, but a GPS is helpful. Location is good for visiting the Loire Chateaux’s. The rate included free internet. The breakfast is an expensive 11 Euro (about $15).

We had an excellent stay in Amboise thanks to the Le Vinci hotel. Our room was comfortable and very clean. The staff were friendly and helpfull and the breakfast was well presented and plentiful. The hotel is located about three minutes by car from the centre which makes it very quiet. Good value.

All the hotel staff were incredibly friendly and helpful throughout our stay - Nothing was too much trouble. Our superior room on 2nd floor was basic but well appointed and comfortable for the money. Also, because we had a car its location was great for easy access to the region.

You know all those horror stories you hear about how rude, superior, and arrogant the French are? Over two trips to France during which we spent over 45 days there, the afternoon desk clerk at this hotel is the ONLY French person we met who deserves that description. From my first contact at check-in, you could tell that my wife and I were just not good enough for his hotel--he was still quite happy to take our money, however. We asked him to recommend a restaurant, and he recommended a couple, but you could tell that if there had been a McDonald's nearby, he would have sent us there figuring that was our normal and expected level of cuisine. This was not a communication problem because he had excellent English. The morning desk guy didn't speak nearly as good English but was pleasant and fun to visit with.

This is unfortunate because the hotel is very nice. Yes, the room is Eurosmall but it is clean, neat, and well furnished. The Novotel in Amboise has larger rooms but is no nicer, especially considering the Novotel's higher price.

So, yes, I recommend this hotel. I just hope you don't get the same desk jerk, uh, I mean clerk, we suffered with!

Stopped at the hotel on the way down to Bordeaux, great find. The receptionist offered us the garage parking for the motorbike, although front gate is locked after 11 (10)?. The rooms were clean and fresh and had tea and coffee making which was a bonus. Large bed and clean / modern shower and basin. We weren't expecting evening food, but the hotel do a limited 'room service' with wine on sale, so we went for that and sat on the terrace, which after 360 miles on the motorbike, went down incredibly well. Overall a great small hotel, with a 'friendly' atmosphere. Small breakfast buffet, but everything we needed. You will need to book, as we tried to book for the return journey and they were fully booked! (it was French hols though)
