For some reason got allocated a suite, which made the stay bearable. Service at reception was fine, breakfast would have shamed a 2 star hotel and the service was abysmal. Heartily recommend people do not stop for this price.

Luniver's was once a great hotel. Its guests included many famous personages whose images form a mural in the lobby. Now, despite some recent refurbishment, we found it shabby with smelly lifts and dark corridors. Our room was uncomfortable and depressing and the friendliness of the staff was not enough to compensate. Overpriced too.

, sales & marketing at Hotel L'Univers Tours, responded to this review, August 13, 2004
The Hotel de L'Univers is a great hotel and has all-ways been since 1846. Many famous faces stayed at hotel de L'Univers through the decades such as Thomas Edison, Ernest Hemingway, John D. Rockefeller, Sir Winston Churchill, King Alphonso XII, Abel Gance and L'Univers is still nowadays the most prestigious place where to stay in Tours. In addition to its rich and historic past, as underlined by its famous portrait gallery it offers by regular and more recently added investments made in 2003 and 2004 all the comfort and luxury of a grand hotel established in the best traditions of hospitality and elegance. 85 large, air conditioned and fully soundproofed rooms and suites. This real boutique hotel, now member of the prestigious Concorde Hotels's group also provides a gourmet restaurant "La touraine", a bar lounge and 6 meeting rooms. Our staff is committed to the warmest hospitality and greatest professionalism, in order to make your stay an unmemorable one.
