Stayed here for three nights as a part of a tour around the Loire Valley Conveniently located next to the train station - 2 minutes away. There are several restaurants located close by - the main square is about a 20 minute walk away The hotel is adequate - rooms are bright and spacious and clean. The bedroom seemed fairly... More

There is nothing wrong with a 2 star hotel such as this one My issue was that Hotwire sells this hotel as a 4 star hotel: this is far far far away from that. My wife and I stayed for leisure purposes 2 nights in Tours, France in order to visit the Loire River area. To our surprise (after specifically... More

We stayed here for one night and thought better of a second. The room was bare bones to say the least with minimal amenities. There was no fridge and a fantastically inconvenient shower. It was sweltering and we had to keep opening the window to control the heat because the knob was broken off of the wall thermostat. We reserved... More

We were with a Gate One tour group and we were booked on the railroad side of this hotel. Loved it. We could have spent the night watching trains come and go, but they all stop after 11 or 11:30 PM. The hotel was fine. It was in a good location and we walked all over the city always feeling... More

As part of a tour, this hotel was a stop over for one night which was acceptable. Hotel is located by the train station, so it can be noisy if not located on the top floors. Rooms/bathrooms need to be upgraded a bit. Buffet breakfast adequate. Very pleasant staff.

We arrived in the dark and left first thing in the morning after a good sleep and breakfast. The only improvement needed was that the coffee needs to be self service and the breakfast items more logically laid out. Either the coffee or the milk never seemed to be available when required. Generally one of the poorer organised breakfasts during... More

This hotel may not be the best in town but it certainly offers excellent value. Right next to the train station and 2 minutes from the exhibition centre/office bureau and less than 10 minutes down towhn this hotel offers excellent value for anyone wishing to visit the Val de Loire area!

We stayed two nights, rooms were great, bed very comfortable. The staff was very helpful. We liked the restaurant so much we had two dinners, both were excellent. The WiFi was free, but when the hotel was full of guests, reception was a little slow. Parking garage was very nice after we figured out how to get the gate codes.... More
