Explore Hotel

We are in the heart of the medieval Vieux Chinon with an easy and direct access to the chateau by foot or car. The BEST WESTERN Hotel de France is an ideal place to discover the sweet lifestyle of the garden of France. The BEST WESTERN Hotel de France offers you a beautifully renovated, 16th century building complete with stylish, comfortable rooms with balconies overlooking the chateau and a charming square with a fountain. Inside the hotel, we welcome you with authentic charm, comfort and respect for tradition. It is said that the most beautiful French is spoken here. Certainly the language is softer; the food is more flavorsome and the wine very drinkable.

france41, Propriétaire at BEST WESTERN Hotel de France, responded to this review
Dear Madam, Thank you for your message. You booked by booking.com a apartment not a room. In your booking reservation,you may read that the apartment is with a double room and a sofa not 3 beds. It's not mentionned air-conditioning in the apartment. It's not indicated that the hotel has a free car parking. We would make you a discount you did'nt accept ! The mentions on the website booking.com were not wrong. Awaiting your answer because the bill is not paid. elmachinon@aol.com Mme Chionna
