Fodor's Expert Review Le Blason
11 pl. Richelieu, Amboise, Centre-Val de Loire, 37400, France
Two blocks behind Château d'Amboise and a five-minute walk from the town center, this small hotel in a 15th-century building has welcoming, English-speaking owners and the gentlest prices in town. Accommodations come in assorted shapes and sizes: Room 229 has exposed beams and a cathedral ceiling, while Room 109 is comfortably spacious with a good view of the square. The on-site restaurant, L'Alliance, serves well-priced three-course menus, which might include dishes like local guinea fowl in a shiitake cream sauce or salmon carpaccio with mustard dressing. But beware: reservations are recommended and you must arrive by 8:45 for dinner.
