Viewing the hotel from the outside it comes across as nothing special and the initial experience of entering the underground car parking was very tight for a big vehicle and there was plenty of evidence of scrapes on walls and pillars. Also the lights were on a timer and we were plunged into darkness as we were unloading the car... More

We have just had an overnight and VERY comfortable stay at this hotel. From the first moment the young man on the desk couldn't do enough to help. Great on-site parking (€8 per night). The room had recently been decorated and was lovely - and the pièce de résistance - there was also a bath! We didnt eat there but... More

After reading some reviews I was a little worried but needn't have been. The only down side of this place is that it is a 1.5 km walk from the train station but still manageable. My room was clean, lovely and quiet with a large window I could open to get some fresh air. Breakfast was ok although the coffee... More

In reading other reviews I may have stayed at a different hotel, found it a mix of old and new, rooms were basic but OK, clean and comfortable. Breakfast area was large with good choice of food replenished as they were used. Staff were helpful and polite (yes it was France), good secure parking and easy access in and out... More

At the time of writing, this hotel is rated 54 out of 76 hotels in Tours - that means there are 22 worse than this? Surely not! Situated in a rather uninspiring part of town (where it fits in well) the place has seen better days. The secure underground parking is a bonus - even at €8 - which alone... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on our short circuit of the Loire châteaux. The hotel is not difficult to find with a GPS and not far from the city center. But inside is rather old looking and in need of a good refurbishement and a thorough cleaning. The room had an odd smell ( air refreshener?) so we had... More

Hotel is a short walk from the old town and is clean, etc. But, we booked a family room and the kids bed as was accessible via a ladder into a mezzanine above. Kids found it cool but I wouldn't recommend for anyone with kids younger than 5 or need to get up in the night. Room was poky, but... More

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
