Le Grand Hotel is exactly that. A 1930's style hotel with many original and impressive features. It is ideally located opposite both the Gare de Tours (train station), tram stop and the bus station, therefore an excellent base to explore the city by public transport. The airport shuttle bus arrives and leaves from stand 9 opposite the hotel and costs... More

We stayed at this hotel with 2 teens for one night in August 2014. The reviews were mixed so we weren't sure what to expect when we arrived. However, it's a great stopover in a fab location that provides good value for money. The hotel staff were helpful, even organising a table reservation at a nearby restaurant, and the breakfast...

We arrived very late and very tired from a long journey and the staff were lovely and welcoming. We are really pleased we went for an hotel with 24 hour front desk and the car parking arrangement was really convenient and safe, a couple of steps from the hotel and although it was 11.00 pm we both (mother and daughter)...

Our room was small but clean and fairly comfortable. Breakfast was extra, and expensive, but there is a boulangerie right next door, and we bought similar food for a fraction of the price and ate breakfast in our room. Staff were friendly. We had bikes with us, and were able to put them overnight in an unused downstairs room. It... More

The hotel is well placed overall. The train station is 50 meters away; the bus station is 20 meters away, and the tourist information centre is 100 meters away. It is an easy walk to rue Nationale where all the major shops are situated and a similarly short walk to the old section filled with beautiful old buildings and many... More

Although this hotel is rated three stars, it did not have a functioning restaurant when I stayed here. The bathroom is very small but modern and recently updated. The bedroom had no drawers for your clothes--only a small closet. It does have free Wi-Fi and TVs. For ice you have to call the front desk and have it delivered to... More

We spent three nights in the Loire Valley and chose this hotel as our base. The hotel is ideally placed for access to the old part of the city, shopping centre and plenty of local cafes and restaurants. The arrangements for secure parking across the road from the hotel were good and inexpensive. The room was of a good size,... More
