The room was tight. There was an upstairs mezzanine that was too hot. Air conditioning only worked in the room below the mezzanine. Jean Marc on reception was very helpful but the hotel is just too sad for words. You can tell this from the fact that there has been no management responses to any reviews. The room was too... More

We booked a family room and were assinged to a room on the 4th floor. The room was too small for two adults + two kids with luggage and the children's bed was only reachable by climbing a ladder (bunk-bed style...)! We expected the "family room" to be big and we did not have enough space to move around the... More

Very mediocre hotel although clean and quite comfortabñe. The room was very small and the decor was strange - very dated and garish colour scheme. Breakfast was good and parking was safe and secure although it was 7euro to park. Situation was good with only a few minutes walk to the old part of Tours. Plenty of restaurants and bars... More

Décor vieux et passé, moquette vieille et cassé, déprimant! La honte!! On était décu, c'était notre dernier soir de vacances dans une belle ville. 79€ - je n'aurais même payé 10€. Dated & very poor standard rooms for the 79€ price tag - old, dirty & broken carpet, exposed bathroom sink, 1920s hairdryer. I wouldn't have paid 10€ if I'd... More

My boyfriend and I were very tired because we were travelling all day long and we want a place to rest and booked this hotel for 1 night. We arrived at night around 10 pm. The room was horrible, the colours on the wall, red, yellow and the carpet blue.It was a depressed room. We went out for fresh air... More

About 10 mins walk out of the old part of Tours. It is a functional hotel, that allows dogs for a surcharge. Rooms are very basic and dated. We had no mini bar, no tea/coffee, no bath. I wouldn't hurry back as it lacks charm and character.

Cheap accomodation and useful for late arrival / short stay. Friendly, English speaking staff who called us to ensure we had door entry code upon arrival. We chose the hotel due its parking availability, however, it was full upon our arrival(!) Luckily there was one parking space just across the street. Room was clean and value for money. We had...

Hotel has a pretty good location - about 10 minutes (max) walk into the old town area and with secure underground parking (which was the main criteria for choosing this hotel). Receptionist was excellent - spoke perfect English, but she realised we wanted to try French, so spoke clear slow French for us to understand. Rooms were clean and small... More

Great hotel with clean, quite large rooms, excellent aircon, OK breakfast (extra) and good staff. Nothing to complain about - a tip for nice and cheap local bars, just continue downhill and you have a nice selection of non-touristy pubs. It's a 15 min walk from the train station, not too bad at all.

This is a very good 2* hotel. We stayed for 2 nights in July; at the beginning and end of a cycling tour of the Loire valley. As we were travelling half-board I can't comment on prices. Given many of the previous negative comments I can only assume that the hotel must have upped its game or people have unrealistic... More
