Tucked away in a quiet street just off the main central station concourse and square is this unassuming hotel. We were greeted by friendly staff and the room was clean and tidy, nothing very exciting but well considered and comfortable. Certainly more room than the very functional Ibis hotels we have stayed in on trips down through France.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights while exploring the Loire Valley and castles. It was a perfect spot to stay in the middle of everything. It's a close walk to the train station and restaurants and shopping also. The rooms are clean, the bathroom fairly large, and they give you a bottle of water to use each day.... More

We stayed for 1 night and were positively suprised. The reception area didn't look 5/5, but rooms were very nice and breakfast was very good. Only 5 min walk from railway station, shops and some restaurants. Also parking space available, althought you have very narrow way to drive. It was worth the money.

We spent 3 nights here in room 401 and really enjoyed it. The hotel is a perfect place to come home to after exploring the loire valley for the day. The room was spacious with a large king, pull out couch double, and a neat single bed tucked into an alcove. With a large outdoor deck, opening skylights, a clean... More

The beds were comfortable and the sheets were changed every 3 days and the towels as required .A new bottle of water was provided daily and tea/coffee making facilities were available. Room was spacious and clean.The water was very hot in the bathroom. There was very little storage space,... More

We stopped in Tours overnight while traveling from Chateau Chambord to Chateau Chenonceau. Tours was only one hour from Chambord and only a 30 minute drive to Chenonceau which made it a good choice for a stop over. We didn't have much time to see much of the town but what we saw seemed charming and lovely as the town... More

Good location in Tours. Reasonably priced and easily accessible parking in the garage below the hotel. The room was recently updated and comfortable. Reasonably priced. Our room also had a small balcony and a bathtub which were a nice surprise. There was a very large radiator in our room that was constantly gurgling, even though it was not in use-... More

Stayed here for 3 nights, arrived and didn't like our room ( strange decoration)so asked to be changed which was done without a problem, much better room. Good location but we got lost trying to find it the first time. Come out of the station (the side entrance, not the main entrance) and walk across the road , turn right... More

One of the better Best Westerns in our view. Room was a good size, lovely supportive bed and good pillows, and front desk service and advice impeccable. We did not eat here so cannot comment on food. Underground secure car park a real plus.
