Accommodations...
I experienced the same thing n Rome...a room in an apartment block in stead of a hotel. The major problem was they would only give me one set of keys for the outer door, the door to the part of the apartments that constituted the "hotel," and the door to my room. I needed a second set for my son who was on his on schedule. So I ended up waiting for him to get back, which was hours in some cases. This appears to be a trend in Italy where they can make more money with short term rentals.

Yes, it is better to change your focus on the good things...
although climbing 576 (or 654 steps) is not my idea of a good thing!

I look forward to your continued firing back with both barrels...
Perhaps by contacting Booking.com you can have them de-listed and save many others from having to endure this "hotel."

Our accommodation
Issy said the same thing, that we should write to Booking.com. No mention anywhere in the description about this being hotel rooms jammed into an apartment block.

Memories!
I'm pretty sure Amboise was the first chateau we visited while in France in the 1980's. I don't remember the gardens being as pretty as shown in your photos, but the weather during your visit is so much better than what we had when we visited! Lucky you! Magnifique photos!

I also stayed in Amboise when touring the Loire Valley with my aunts...
so thanks for the memories! I hope you have a chance to see other chateaux, or at least Chenonceux.
