I have been in this hotel several times. And I felt something special, I like the old enviroment. And this hotel has preserved a little bit the begining past century style. I cannot considere myself neutral with it. This style is not the preferred by a lot of people, because they refuse the old things. Now, it is in refurbishing,... More

We arrived at this hotel towards the end of a fabulous two week trip driving through France and the Alps. We booked via Booking.com as per our other three bookings on this trip, all of which were wonderful. This hotel was appalling - they had failed to advise Booking.com that the hotel was actually a building site with zero facilities... More

Historic place in heart of the city, with absolutly recomended restaurant. Nice comfortable, and unpretentious rooms! Absolutly perfect to stay for few days or longer. Stuff is helpful and proffesional. Charming historic lobby with nice but specific atmosphere.

There were renovations going on at the time. Still the staff were fantastic, However, NO safe in room, NO kettle in room for tea, NO signs on the door for 'do not disturb', etc. NO fridge in room - not what I expected from a 4* hotel.

Lovely hotel, central location with friendly staff who know the area. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The bathrooms are divided by a frosted glass wall and are modern with a great spacious shower. If you telephoned reception they could sort everything out that we needed. Would definitely book this hotel for another trip around Tours. There are so many... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in December. We arrived via train and it was a very easy and fast (2 min) walk to our hotel. The staff were lovely and the lobby was clean. We were on the 5th floor and the lift was fast and the hallways were well lit and beautifully furnished. Our room was roomy and... More

We arrived Friday afternoon (the Friday of the Paris terror attacks). The hotel was pretty easy to find, and unlike other hotels we stayed at in France, it was relatively easy to find a place to pull over in front of the hotel in order to check in. The lobby looks good, but the carpets and furniture is worn and... More

Excellent housekeeping service and cooperative reception. Room recently refurbished, extremely clean & tidy. Could do with some pictures on the walls as a bit stark at present, no doubt this will be remedied shortly.

I stayed there for three nights from 1 to 4 November 2015. It is really close to the train station, Tourism Office and Town Hall, and a short walk of ten minutes to the main sights in Tours such as Catheral St Gatien and Place Plumereau. The room was renovated. However, (1) There was no coffee making facility (2) The... More

We booked for one night and ended up staying for 2 nights! We stayed in a "deluxe" double and enjoyed our spacious, quiet room..........incredibly good double/triple glazing on the opening glass doors overlooking the main drag. Perfect location for our trip from the airport, so easy to get in and out of the city from here. We were here to... More
