Stayed here for one night enroute to Toulouse. Hotel is comfortable with well appointed rooms. The hotel has a small bar area which seems to be under used. Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice. Would recommend staying here as it is comfortable and a great location.

We stayed 2 nights and found the hotel staff to be helpful and polite. The hotel is clean, tastefully decorated and the room was a good size with all the facilities we needed including tea/coffee and very clean, crisp bedding. The bathroom was spotless with plenty of towels, soap and hairdryer. We found the maid service to be very good.... More

I chose this hotel as a base for touring the chateaux of the Loire Valley. It is an excellent location for such a visit. The proximity of the hotel to the train station is a real advantage. The hotel is also situated in a quiet area, conducive to a restful night's sleep. The bedroom was impeccably clean as was the... More

The hotel is on a small street quite close to the train station and just a 10 minute walk to the cathedral and historic center of Tours. The room was clean and comfortable with a good wifi connection. We only spent one night here on our way to Paris so can't really say much. We really liked the young ladies... More

We were part of a large student group from the United States, and we only stayed for one night. The hotel itself was actually pretty fun because it had a movie star theme. Every room is named after a movie star. It was kind of fun to say that instead of Room 301, that I was staying in the Ginger... More

This hotel was an average hotel. Bed was comfortable, bathroom small. No fridge and the safe needed a key and a 50€ deposit. The air conditioning was not really cool despite being a split system.

We stayed a long time in an apartment in Tours, but needed a place for the last night before we took a train to Paris. This hotel is conveniently located. We paid an extra fee to use the parking garage, which made our loading and unloading of baggage very easy. The staff was helpful and courteous. We would use this... More

We usually have great experiences with Best Western, but this did not live up to that standard. The bed was rock-hard (no mattress pad over the spring mattress), the bathroom had not been thoroughly cleaned and the decorative pillows were downright dirty. It's an older building with thin walls and old plumbing, so noise from the other tenants and the... More
