“Comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

We had a refurbished room which was spacious, spotless, quiet and very comfortable. Excellent beds. Large bathroom. The hotel is central and is opposite a tree lined avenue. Décor is interesting. We had very good breakfast in the mini-mall next door at a reasonable price. The reception area needs refurbishment as does the area around the elevators. I'd certainly stay again.

The room was spacious and renovated for our family of 4. Love the location, close to shopping and a beautiful fountain by l'hotel de ville. They provided slippers, lotions, robes, shaving kit, shampoo, sewing kit, dental kit, bottled water, Nespresso, candies in our room. I liked that they thought of all the little extras without having to call for housekeeping. The bed and pillows were comfy and the room was very clean. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this chain if all their hotels were like this.

after over 4 years i was in this particular hotel, and with good surprise I receive a room at the 3rd floor completely renewed, spacious and more clean. the furniture are essential and modern style, the bath is nice with the WC separated in a different "room", very useful for smell but you need to pass from both doors to clean and wash your hands. the final results of restructuring is nice. breakfast is assorted with different possibilities, standard or something less for a 4*. very oood the general judgment

Room Tip: 3rd floor in front

Hotel L'Univers was very well located within walking distance of the city center. The staff was very friendly and the bar was charming. The rooms were clean and decent. The lobby was very tired. However, they didn't mind when our group hung out in the balcony section to enjoy wine and cheese. The restaurant at the hotel was only fair. It didn't have many patrons over the five days we were there.

We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed the stay at L'Univers. Looking at the floor plan we were given one of the smallest rooms available and it really was too small for two people. The room was made up of the bed and a small desk built into the wall with a little stool to use with the desk. However, there was only about 1-2 feet around the bed of extra space and it didn't work well for two of us.

The bathroom was a decent size and modern with a great shower. The location was perfect for Tours and the service was great even though we were a little disappointed with one of the restaurants they suggested. I would strongly suggest reserving a parking space ahead of time as it worked well with the limited amount of parking space in the area.

We stayed for 1 night in june 2014.
The room was fantastic, very modern, bright, and spacious. Good air-con too.
Bed was very comfortable, lots of space considering we had a baby with us as well, and an amazing shower! Private car-park was a bonus and easily accessible and the breakfast was a very good offering. All in all we had a lovely stay at this hotel.

My extended family (12 of us) stayed at Hotel L'Univers in Tours for 3 days in May. The Hotel was great; pretty nondescript external appearance, but had everything I really wanted. Fast internet speed for those of us that needed to do some work while on vacation. Big rooms that were immaculate. The bathrooms were excellent, and had a Swiss-like contemporary design. Plenty of bakeries nearby for breakfast. Didn't eat at the Hotel's restaurant so can't comment. The Hotel has a great location near the old city so that is easily accessible.

Tip: there was a very nice laundromat about 3 blocks from the Hotel that we really needed to wash our clothes.
Tip: there isn't a lot of parking on the street locally, but the Hotel has a small parking garage in which you can reserve a space for 15 euros.

Overall, a very good value with no reasons to complain
