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!
