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 our expectations. We left our car ( a medium sized SUV) in the hotel's basement garage and yes parking was awkward with the size of our car and its limited 4x4 steering lock was awkward but we managed it carefully with lots of assistance from the power steering! We then used public transport and lots of shanks pony to see this lovely city. Nearby chateaux of Chambord and Cheverny accessed by private minibus and guide...
Hotel room typical Best Western, nice bathroom, quiet, except that our room with its link-door (room 105) one night meant the occupant in the room next door could be heard when speaking loudly on his telephone. Noise carries through link-doors so true to get a room without one if this troubles you.
The buffet Breakfast in the hotel is very good quality and both WIFI in the hotel as well as the 24-7 availability of a desk top computer FOC in the restaurant area if needed was a plus.
Staff all very pleasant and helpful.
Once your sat nav finds the hotel in the labyrinth of Tours one way system you will be happy here and lewve your car parked up safely inside as we did whilst you are staying here, the €10 daily charge well worth it.
Finally the bedroom hospitality tray and super soft quality bathroom towels are welcome standard supply.
A good experience, a great "city-break" hotel, if that is your thing, and clearly a good business hotel as well as the tourist hotel that we needed. Well done snd thank you Best Western....!
