Firstly, you could not wish for a better location. Situated in a nice quiet square in the heart of the old town, Le Mondial is just a couple of minutes walk from Place Plumereau, 10 minutes from the Cathedral, and around 15 minutes from the station. Parking is handy too, and if you've got a hire car, it's easy to get in and out of the city from here, and out to the surrounding Loire valley.
I've noticed some people have mentioned noise, but we had no problems with noise either during the day or at night. I know Tours pretty well having lived there before, and I'm pretty certain that you won't get a quieter hotel in the old town. Somebody mentioned people drinking outside until 6am, which can't be the case as no standard bar has a licence that late, and there are no clubs in the square, so don't be put off by that.
The room was very nicely kept, clean and comfortably furnished, at a higher standard than I would have expected for the price. The same can also be said for the rest of the hotel. There are a few stairs to contend with, and no lift, as it's quite an old building, so this may be a consideration.
The continental breakfast was excellent, with a nice selection, and served up in a nice dining area with views across the square.
Finally, the staff were fantastic. Extremely thoughtful and considerate, friendly and happy to help.
When we next go back to Tours, Le Mondial will definitely be our preferred place to stay.
