This hotel was ideally located for our purposes only a 5 minute walk (with cases) from the train station. It is located in a back street but don't let this deter you. The hotel foyer immediately impressed and a quick walk through the rest of the hotel was also impressive. Our room was comfortable and spacious with perhaps the only... More

So I rate all hotels on a global basis, not my expectation of a particular hotel. That said they meet nearly all of my expectations. I rated them 3 stars because in the grand scheme of all hotels they are just average. Compared to my experience of France, and Europe hotels I would say they would be 3.5 to 4.... More

We stayed here at the start of our driving tour of the Loire Valley. The rooms and hallways are updated and quite pleasant. The theme of the decor is that of artists, of all different genres, with photos of them on the walls. We did arrive somewhat early, just after noon, and were very tired after our flight. Claire, the... More

Spent a long weekend at this hotel with my first visit to Tours (and France). I've travelled a fair bit around the globe so I've had my share of various hotel standards and I'm pleased to say that my stay at Hotel L'Artist was very pleasant and I have no complaints. My experience of the reception staff was that they... More

This wasn't our first version sit to Tours, having loved in Belgium and France in the 1970's and all the 1980's. Our latest (3 night) stay in Tours was towards rhe end of a three week touring holiday in France during November 2014. Booked a few days before we arrived The Best Western L'Artiste seemed to meet (and did) all... More

Just spent one night in this hotel on our return from the south of France. Really helpful reception staff and the room was clean and very comfortable. It's located very close to the city centre and restaurants are in easy walking distance. Our only reservation is the underground car park which is very tight to get in and out of,... More

We made a reservation at the Best Western in Tours for a good night sleep in the way to Hossegor from Paris. I like Best Western for stays where I'm not looking for a luxurious place, beautiful facilities and lots of amenities, but only a decent a room, with a comfortable bed and a clean bathroom, and good (and free)...

First let me say how warm and helpful the staff have been. The two lovely young ladies who seem to be plumbers/cleaners as well as mini tour guides have been nothing short of sensational. The location of L'Artist best western is very strategic as its near the Tours train station and the information centre (which everyone goes for the Loire... More

This hotel was so much better than I expected from what I expected with the internet search...their web site doesn't do justice to the hotel. I originally only chose this hotel because it was close to the train station but kept the reservation when our plans changed and we arrived by car. Good idea! Excellent accommodations, free parking and close... More
