After a bad experience in Paris with a three star hotel, we check in at Mercure-Tours.
The check-in was very quick. We had two triple rooms. They were very very spacious. They have carpets in it, but as the standard of hotels Mercure, it was very clean.
The shower and sink are separate from the toilet, which can be very usefull if you have 3 people inside the room at the same time.
One of the bathrooms had a bed smell after a shower, or after you remove the plug/stopgap from the bathtub/sink. The hair dryer was good.
They pillows are very small, and the third bed has a not-so-good blanket as the other beds.
The breakfast was very good with great options. But there were a guest who insisted to bring his dog to the breakfast room with him (and stayed with it near the buffet).
I was concerned to stay right behind the train station, but we couldn't hear the trains at all with the double windows. But you can always demand a room that is located in the oposite side of the gare.
They don't have restaurant at night, only for non-guests that are in business at the hotel. The room service works until 9p.m. If you want to eat something after that, you'll need to walk a little bit to find a McDonalds or something (that probably will be closed) in city-center. And more then once there was no-one at the front desk. They keep only one employee doing everything after a certain hour (front desk, bar, room's orders).
