Exceptional quality and attention to detail for the very cheap price of 65 euros. What made it exceptional was the lovely and welcoming receptionist. Her English was the best that we have encountered in France and she went out of her way to make sure we were happy. Would recommend hotel du theatre

We absolutely loved the old building. We had a rooftop view and were thrilled. The room was not big, but who would expect one in what was certainly initally a medieval structure.
The hotel did send us information about the entry code and how to get to our room, so that was not an issue.
My daughter and I truly enjoyed this hole in the wall.
Word of caution: There is no elevator and the staircases can be steep and narrow. So be prepared to drag your bags. We didn't have any problem with that, and would do it again.
The hotel is centrally located (then again, this is not a huge town) and service is friendly.

Stayed here while visiting the Chateau's. It is about 15 mins by foot from the train, Close to shops, groceries and dining. The woman who checked us in was super friendly. Internet was free but sometimes a bit slow. The rooms were average size for Europe and the bathroom a bit larger than usual. It was clean and also ready when we checked in at 9am We loved our room right off the breakfast area overlooking the street. Street noise was heard but didn't bother usually sensitive ears. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel. We did rent bikes down the street from the train and biked to Villandry Cheateau...ithe bike path is simple to follow..no cars to compete with...the trail is relatively flat and very beautiful.

Room Tip: There is no lift..So if you don't like climbing small stairs, ask for room on main level

Arrived 3pm on Sunday: door was locked.

Had the idea to call the hotel, and the response was Ah Oui - reception does not open until 1800!

Told us the entry code and the room number on the phone, so no real problem. However, it might be a good idea to tell customers about the limited opening hours when booking.

Price is on the high side for the service offered.

My wife and I stayed at Hotel du Theatre for one night in February 2012. The hotel is in an old, charming building; there's no lift and the stairs are very steep and narrow. The rooms are clean and cozy with nice decoration (I loved the old beams), yet a bit small. The bed in our room (35) was comfortable; but some things in the bathroom were worn out and need a quick fix. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

The location of the hotel is very good; the hotel seems to be right in the middle between the train station, the Cathedral and the old town.

In short, great value for money; just don't expect five-star luxury.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night in Aug and it was great. The receptionist was extremely helpful and lovely. The room and bathroom were extremely clean and nicely decorated. And the location was fantastic. The hotel doesn't have parking but we were able to find parking on the street easily and didn't have to worry about paying overnight. Highly recommend - great value.

We felt very welcome to this place thanks to a very friendly receptionnist, both on the phone and on arrival.
The room was very nicely decorated, even if a bit small it was totally functionnal.
The location is just so close to the lively centre of Tours that it could hardly be better for the price.
Given the location, the street was noisy but it was still within acceptable range of noise.
