Ibis Blois Centre Chateau
Ranked #6 of 29 Hotels in Blois
GreenLeadersBronze level
Reviewed 17 September 2011

Originally, we were planning a 3 night stay then going to move on to a different area to explore Loire Valley, but the area was central and staff were so lovely, that we extended our stay to 5 nights. The Ibis was literally around the corner from both the chateau and the bus stop to take you to the other chateaux. We could even see the Blois Chateau roof from our room. The room was large (bathroom even more so), had all good amenities, but was decorated a little plain. Inside of the hotel was quite standard looking, except for the gorgeous vintage lift. Loved that one.

The staff were absolutely fantastic. Spoke flawless English & helped us with directions and attractions. My mum ended up being quite sick, actually, so one of the staff wrote mum's symptoms & request for cough medicine down on a piece of paper in French, then directed us to a nearby chemist. They also checked train times for us for the next day so we could go to Chateau Chenonceau.

Overall, lovely stay in medieval area of Blois - lots of exploring to be done!

Excellent in every respect.
Ibis hotels usually suit us fine but this one excelled.
We liked the room with the juliet balcony.
The staff were enthusuastic, friendly and very helpful.
We will certainly stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. Location of the hotel is ideal - easy walking around Blois town, near good places to eat, good bars and small shops. Our two main problems were the lack of a bath (despite asking for a room with a bath/shower) we were told it only had showers - although other reviewers have said they had a bath! Also the bed was v. firm - which was fine better than too soft, but after 3 nights and no relaxing bath a bit much!

We had breakfast which was good - usual Ibis quality and usual choices but perfectly fine. We parked at the Chateau, again very convenient. All in all a very good base, but personally for no more than 2-3 nights!

I'm writing this from our room at this hotel....

We're driving down to Spain and chose Blois in the Loire valley as our first overnight stop - then we needed to find a hotel. We checked the Ibis out as it is in an old french builidng which appealed to us and near the chateau. Fortunately for us there was a family room available and I can say that this room is spacious enough for two adults and a teenager. Our room is modern, has a bath and shower, is clean and the beds are wider than average - big bonus air conditioning that works!

We got a very warm welcome at reception, the receptionist was very helpful and we would def stay again

Think we paid under 100 euros, not bad really - Oh and there's free Wi-fi too!

Can't comment on the breakfast as opted to do our own thing,

There is parking outside but it is on street. The hotel has an underground carpark that you can use for 5 euros/24 hrs but it isn't on site, but it isn't too far away either.

Hotel is in a very convenient location with pay parking nesrby. Staff were frindly and helpful. Hotel is a bit dated but the bed was very comfortable. Ideal for short break. Bliois Chateua is worth a visit & the son et lumiere is in English on Wednesday evenings!
