We recently spent four nights at this 26 room hotel in the town of Amboise in the Chateaux country, and were very impressed by the quality of the facilities as well as with the amiable multi-lingual staff.

Although we tried to book through an internet site, we received no response, and therefore called the hotel directly. As my French over the telephone is rusty, we were pleased that the staff spoke English. She went out of her way to accomodate our request for a king-sized bed for our four nights.

Upon our arrival, we were greeted and helped to our room, which was very comfortable and well equipped with a first-rate bed, fine cotton sheets and towels (that had no odor of bleach), in-room coffee/tea maker, a safe and a mini-bar. An iron and ironing board are available on request, and an ice machine and buckets are available near the lobby. Although we seldom take breakfast in hotels, we did so at Le Vinci because it was a substantial buffet that lasted us until dinner. Also, the hotel is not in the main part of the town, so we couldn't walk to a bakery or cafe.

However, being in a residential area about two minutes from the town center, the hotel has nice landscaping, secure parking and is very quiet. Due to some road construction with detours, we had some trouble finding it. The location for exploring the Loire Valley is excellent.

Staff recommendations for dinner were excellent; we had superb food and wine at very reasonable prices.

Le Vinci Loire Valley (Best Western) is spotless, and exceeded the standards that we would expect in the $100 range. We would return in a heartbeat!

My husband and I recently stayed for two nights at the Best Western Le Vinci Loire Valley. For those who prefer a more modern hotel, this is your place! The hotel is immaculate, the rooms are nice sized with modern decor, big windows, and updated bathrooms. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is plenty of free parking.

The location is great if you have a car and are looking to explore the area but a bit far from the center of Amboise if you don't have your own transportation. Easy drive to Chenonceaux and close to Tours.

My husband and I stayed this hotel for 2 nights as a base for exploring the Loire Valley. The hotel turned out to be MUCH better than we could ever anticipate. The room was very nice and spacious with some amenities we don't usually expect outside of the U.S. for this price range (69 euros/night for double): modern furnishing, new bathroom, A/C, flat screen TV, free high-speed Internet access, big comfortable bed, etc. My personal favorite was the ice machine near the lobby :-) We had to pay extra for continental breakfast (7.5 euro/person/day) but it was worth it. Gated parking is free. Overall, a great place to stay for people who are seeing the Loire Valley by car. The hotel is several kilometers away from Amboise town center, so there is really nothing interesting within walking distance.

My wife and I booked the Le Vinci for a 1.5 day stop-over on our way to the Atlantic coast. The hotel is located on one of the main, albeit quiet, roads leading into Amboise. It's a 10-minute walk into town with its spectacular royal castle & plenty of good restaurants serving local food (shuttle service from/to the hotel for an extra EUR 5). There's plenty of parking space available on the (gated) hotel grounds, accessible 24/7 by room key.

Recently finished, the hotel is clean and bright with a nice modern touch, which was a welcome reprise from the usual 'rustic' charme we had encountered in this price category. The rooms a large by French standards, with a flat-screen TV and ISDN port for Internet access. The bathrooms are new and reasonably sized with shower.

Another big plus was the friendly, bi-lingual (FR/ENG) staff and a generous continental breakfast for an additional EUR 8.50 pp.

We truly enjoyed our short stay in Amboise and would definitely recommend the Le Vinci for anyone touring the Loire valley. If you intent to stay a little longer, though, you might want to opt for something closer to the castle.
