I stayed at the Hotel Moderne while attending a conference at the university. The hotel was excellent; a pleasant location, friendly service, and super-clean rooms. It was 2 blocks from the train station, and in a good, quiet neighborhood, behind the city hall. There is a high school around the corner, so there was a fair amount of street noise when the students were coming and going. There was also a bit of street noise late on Saturday night. Otherwise the street was very quiet, and while as a solo woman I am nervous about walking down quiet streets late at night, this neighborhood seemed fine even though I came back at 10 or 11 pm each night. The hotel was a block from the main shopping street, and 3 or 4 blocks to the very charming medieval part of town, so it was perfect for walking around the town.
The room was simple but with everything one might need, a sparkling bathroom with new tile and a really good shower, comfortable beds (but note that the pillows are French-style), plenty of lighting and convenient bedside lights. Oh, and free wifi! One thing I would note is that the rooms were not soundproofed that well; or, at least, the person in the room next to mine seemed to need 3 different very loud alarms in order to wake up, and I could hear all of them. I didn't hear anything else, though; the clientele was very quiet otherwise!
The breakfast (not included in the room rate) was plentiful and French-style, bread and croissants and rusks, with coffee/tea/chocolat and juice, and I think also cereal, while eggs were available for an extra fee.
The service was friendly and helpful throughout. I made the reservation online and they were very good about following up with emails. Overall I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Tours.
