Le Medicis Hotel
Ranked #21 of 28 Hotels in Blois
Reviewed 30 September 2008

The location is a pleasant 10 minute walk from the center of town, and about 5 minutes walk from the train station. Parking is free (if you are using a GPS go one additional exit on the roundabout and the parking will be just on your right). The room we had reminded me of a cross between a generic European hotel room and a generic US motel/hotel room. It was clean and comfortable. There is no elevator, so plan to carry your luggage up the stairs if you are on the first floor (Europeans call the ground floor "0").
The restaurant was absolutely fantastic and very reasonably priced for the kind of meal served. They had no issues adjusting to the fact that I'm a vegetarian.
The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The Wi-Fi internet was free. Breakfast, like most French hotels, was severely overpriced.

We booked this hotel based on a highly recommended review from Fodors - if only we had went to Tripadvisor first.
Contrary to what Fodors stated this is probably equivalent to a below average roadside motel.

The hotel is not conveniently located - about a 20 minute walk from the city center on the side of a busy road. Our view from our room was of that of a roundabout which was around 25 yards away (made opening the window not an option due to the noise and concerns about fumes).

Staff were friendly but it seemed that the main focus of this business was the restaurant with the hotel being a bit of a sideline.

The air-conditioning unit was making a strange noise and when I looked closer (and poked around a little) a large cluster of bugs fell from where the air filter was located.

Be careful if you need to check out early as it seems the front desk doesn't get staffed until later in the morning (we waited from 6:15am to 7:30am on a Saturday morning for someone to show but ended up just leaving a note and settling up our bill later).

There's no way that we can see how this hotel holds a 3-star rating - badly needs updated and location is pretty bad.

We called the Hotel Medicis after the hotel we had originally booked in Vouvray (Domaine des Bidaudieres) turned out to be not to our expectations. When we arrived at the Medici...we were warmly greeted and led up to our triple suite on the 3rd floor (beware that there is no elevator!).

Our room was beautiful...decorated in red and white...simply charming. And it was absolutely immaculate! There was a seperate bedroom with large bed...very comfy. And in the living room there was a large pull-out sofa for our 7 year old. There was also a mini-fridge which came in handy.

The hotel is very charming. We heard that the restaurant was amazing, but unforunately did not have the time to enjoy a meal there. The location, although not miles away from the city centre of Blois, was not close enough to walk to...at least with a 7 year old. But if you have a car, there is plenty of parking.

If you are looking for a base to explore Blois and the surrounding Loire, than Le Medicis is perfect for a few nights. We would certainly stay at Le Medicis again.

We found the air-conditioned rooms with huge jacuzzi bath just what was required after a day's travelling. THE EVENING MEAL WAS SUPERB, way above expectations and not overpriced. The dining room is lovely and the service was excellent. The only downside of the location is that it is away from the attractive town centre; but it's easy to find and has a delightfully designed adjacent roundabout to admire (really!).

We were originally booked in another hotel sans a/c , but due to the hot weather we changed hotels to the Medicis.We had two rooms there, one on the second level with a portion of the room under the eves, and another on the first level - I recommend the 1st level as the room seems larger, and the bath is bigger. Free parking was included. The rooms were modern to european standards, well maintained and the bath and shower were very comfortable, but the jewel in the crown of this hotel is the restaurant. It was an incredible meal, and the service was 5 stars. Good location if you have a car for touring the area.
I will be back!
