Best Western Le Vinci Loire Valley4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Quiet comfortable hotel with air conditioning and free parking. Reasonable walking distance from the town centre - we did this several times. Good location for visiting the Loire Chateaux. Helpful staff cooked us an evening meal as it was evening when we arrived. I would use the hotel again if I return to the area.
Very pleasant location just out of the town. Not a large hotel but modern and friendly. A peacefull spot with open countryside at the rear of the hotel. Will certainly stay again and Amboise is certainly worth a visit.
We love Amboise and the quaint shops and restaurants. This hotel is great too. It has a nice firm bed that is good in the back and the décor is a bit quirky / purple and DaVinci painting wall paper. Don't count on supper because you have to give them a lot of notice. Convenient location and free parking. Much classier than Best Western's in the USA.
This hotel was clean, rooms are spacious for a European hotel, and the beds are comfortable. But service is uneven at best. And the hotel is well over a kilometer from town, so unless you have a car prepare yourself for some very long walks. And even though they advertise room service and dinner options, and have a menu in the room, at present they say they have no cook. So during my two days in the hotel there was no food available at all after breakfast--and there are no stores or restaurants within walking distance. And while their website advertises complimentary water, there was none; they charged me 5,30 euros each day for a bottle. The check-in clerk was very friendly but completely unaccommodating about check-in times. She accepted to store my luggage but refused to allow me to check in before the formal check-in time of 3:00 pm even if a room became available. I have never had that happen before, anywhere. Sometimes a hotel can't get your room cleaned and ready right away, which is perfectly understandable. But I've never before had anyone refuse to let me check in a little early simply because the posted time is later. The elevator wasn't working when I arrived and the stairs are so narrow there is only room to carry your luggage in front of you. Breakfast is minimal even though it costs about $15: it includes a small selection of meats and cheeses, two hot dishes (scrambled eggs and bacon), a few breads and sweet rolls, yogurt, a few thin pancakes, a few dry serials, and some fruit. The room has a small desk but the light is purely decorative, not serviceable for work. There is plenty of parking out front and around the back, but the hotel is bracketed by two busy roads so there is always traffic noise. The closet has a curtain and three shelves, but no drawers. There is pump soap by the sink and in the shower, but no shampoo, lotion, or other amenities at all. And the TV is very small. They arranged taxis for me on several occasions, but each time the service cost me significantly more than they promised it would, and though they advertise a hotel car/shuttle, they would only call a taxi while I was there. In short, if you have a car and want a no-frills, comfortable bed for the night, then this hotel is ok. But if you actually want to eat in a hotel, relax, walk to Amboise center, or require any service at all, you will be sorely disappointed with this hotel.
Staff were all very nice and helpful, Room was slightly basic but very clean and comfortable; good bed. A bit far into town center if you don't have a car but free parking if you do, and nice and quite at night even with windows open A good value for what you get. Did our laundry for us for a very reasonable charge. Overall a pleasant stay. We did not eat there.
Terrible hotel, far from the touristic center, terrible sound isolation and over heated. You can hear everything from the neighborhood and from the corridors. In the first morning, we were woken early by a lawn mower. In the second morning, we were woken by a guest knocking on other door in the end of the corridor. If you do not want to sleep it suits you perfectly. Inside the rooms it is very hot and the room air conditioner do not manage to cool down and it is impossible to sleep with an open window, because outside is very noisy. Even after changing rooms the unconfortable heat persisted.But if you do want a great stay, with the same price range,last year, i went to the hotel Le Manoirs Les Minimes, and it was memorable. Péssimo hotel, longe do centro turístico, isolamento sonoro terrível e um calor absurdo. É possível ouvir o corredor e a vizinhança de maneira bastante alta. Na primeira, manhã fomos acordados por um cortador de grama na vizinhança. Na segunda manhã, fomos acordados por um hospede batendo em outra porta do outro lado do corredor. Dentro dos quartos é extremamente abafado e o sistema de ar condicionado dos quartos não da conta do recado e o barulho não permite abrir a janela. E mesmo após trocar de quarto o problema persistiu. Se você quizer uma boa estadia, na mesma faixa de preço, ano passado, me hospedei no hotel Le Manoirs Les Minimes e foi fantástico.
This is the small hotel operated from a three stories building that looks like a large mansion. It is in a quiet residential street approximately five minutes drive away from the historic town of Amboise. Our room was small, rustic but comfortable. Guests' cars can be conveniently parked in its compound. it has a small restaurant that serves a decent breakfast. However, there are plenty of food options nearby. Service is friendly, the staff speak English and are helpful in answering questions and making recommendations. Amboise itself is a charming town with a historic castle that has the colourful history. This is a good value accommodation option and I would definitely stay here again in the event that I return to Amboise.
Really helpful staff, very welcoming. Comfortable bed, room was fine, housekeeping was of a high standard. Didn't eat here, but I heard other guests say the food was good - bar and outside area only open during tourist season though. Nice local jewelry and wine on sale in reception. Only down side was that the wifi did not extend to the room I was in. I could get it up to outside the door, but not inside the room itself. Would definitely recommend and stay here again
Beware of Best Western Hotel Vinci Loire Valley in Amboise when booking at that hotel. They will make you pay whether you stay at the hotel or not, even if they can’t give you the room you originally booked. We booked a superior room (requesting a quiet room) for September 10 - September 13, 2016 (3 nights). We were given a very small and claustrophobic room with a sloping ceiling, which we declined. The only non-claustrophobic room which was available, and we had to accept, was a room in front of the elevator, facing the main road, with a noisy air conditioning unit and even had a broken toilet seat. After a sleepless night, we advised the hotel that we could not stay the following two nights. We were told that we would still have to pay for the 3 nights (Euro 375). Their excuse was because we had made the booking directly on the Best Western website. We were offered another room for the remaining 2 nights, but they couldn’t show us that room until 4 pm. We didn’t want to take the risk of other sleepless nights and reluctantly had to pay the 375 Euro and left. Upon our return home, we contacted Best Western (in Arizona). They were very efficient, helpful and understanding and after making their own investigations, sent us a refund for the two nights we didn't stay in Amboise, but had to pay. Although the Best Western Office handled this matter in a very professional and fair manner, we cannot say the same for franchisees such as Best Western Hotel Vinci Loire Valley, 12 Avenue Emile Gounin, Amboise, France.
This is a small hotel, not serving an evening meal but giving good advice on where to eat. Two minute drive to town centre where there is lots to see, do (including wine tasting) and eat. We eat at Chez Bruno. Very nice. Rooms are OK but top floor is in the roof so ceilings slope. Secure parking is free and gates are shut after 11pm albeit you have a key. Breakfast was lovely with good selection. We will return.
