“Great location and a good stay”
Reviewed 1 September 2012

The hotel is next to the prime tourist area with its restaurants and 100 metres from the chateau. Inside, check in is fast, rooms are clean and in working order. The breakfast is excellent. The front of the hotel overlooks a main road, but it is not that busy at night.

Room Tip: If you are very sensitive to noise, then get a room at the back, but you miss the morning sun!

I'm amazed some reviewers criticise this Ibis for being an Ibis. It's a well-known chain offering decent basic accommodation at a reasonable price with a good breakfast and FREE WIFI! And, it's right in the heart of this wonderful city - everything is just a short walk away. Yes, you'll need to park about 100 metres from the hotel but that's no hardship, really.

Ask for the discount vouchers on offer to some of the Loire castles. Marvel at the historic lift that's been renovated for the 21st century.

Best of all, there's Jocelyn. He's the amazing receptionist who can deal with several inquiries at once - and - in several languages. My friend and I had a great conversation with him late one evening when his workload had somewhat lessened. A really nice guy.

The Ibis chain can be relied upon for good standard accommodation and this was no exception. The room was clean, comfortable and suitable for our needs and the price was good value. The motel located in the centre of Blois and close to the castle allowed us to easily enjoy staying in this lovely town in the Loire Valley. The front desk staff were efficient and helpful with maps and magically appeared at the lift to open the door. A previous reviewer mentioned the small lift. The lift was authentic to the style and age of the building and worked efficiently with views of the floors as we ascended. We are always grateful for a lift! Also mentioned was the challenge of locating the parking. The front desk provide a map to follow which leads to a parking lot a short walk to the hotel.

We stayed here for two nights in Aug 2012 while making our way to Paris from the South. I had read good reviews about Ibis in Blois except I didn't realize there was more than one. So when I saw the name, we just automatically checked in and what a stroke of luck. The hotel is literally across the street from the main attractions of the Chateau Royal de Blois; La Maison de la Magie Robert-Houdin; Saint Nicolas church ( a former abbey)... among many others.

The room is small, typical of what you would expect in a French restored building. The decor and such are slightly dated and not exceptionally functional but it is clean and did its job well. The price is fairly unbeatable and having been in Paris, the price of the breakfast buffet is excellent. Water pressure was good, plenty of toilet paper. However only one towel is provided; no face cloth or hand towel is provided.

Service at the front counter is good, expect some problems if you have no command of French but you should be able to get by just fine with English and some patience. The parking is one block away and reasonable in price but you are going to take some chances to find a spot in front of the hotel to off load your luggage.

The ideal location to explore the city from is the key here.

Room Tip: Facing the street is nice. The balcony doors provide good soundproofing and the small balcony is a n...

It is an Ibis with all that you expect from an Ibis - no more, no less! But the location is as good as it gets and the August discount makes it great value - all the sights and eateries are within a 5 minute walk. The room was spotless, the bed was comfy, and shower had great power. We had a triple room, which was very spacious. The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and informative. What more could you want?

The building itself is really old and they have made good use of it - keeping the old style lift for example! Our rooms were great and though small, made good use of the space. They were clean and breakfast was good there too. They have made a good bar by reception too. The reception is full of local tourist info which is handy and the staff were most helpful.

The location is brilliant and so easy to get everywhere. Parking isn't right by the hotel but very near it as you can cut across the centre.

I was very impressed with this hotel for a chain one!
