Ibis Budget Tours Centre
Ranked #39 of 88 Hotels in Tours
Reviewed November 5, 2011

We stayed just for a night in our way to the Atlantic coast.
The room was clean, with very good sonar isolation so that we heard nothing from the nearby railway station. Most important, the free parking and that in 5 min walk we were in the center of the town.

We were on our bike trip to Loire valley and spent a couple of days here having Tours as our base. The hotel was a cheap and value for money accomodation near the station. Its being near the station actually helped since we could save time to commute. The receptiomist was also nice and helpful and helped us a lot with our queries (inspite of our limited French speaking abilities).

Room Tip: Probably checking out if there is a hair dryer would help.

This hotel is walking distance from the train station but I wouldn't say it's central. If you are going to Tours as a tourist, the areas where you will go are around place de Plummerau, which is not far but there are plenty of more convenient hotels.
Avoid the breakfast, even if it's just EUR 4.90. Quality is poor, little choice and depressing room.
In spite of being close to the station, the rooms are quiet.
This hotel has just the essential, which is reflected by the price (EUR 45 for a double room).
If we were to go back to Tours we would choose a hotel with more charachter in a more central location.

We had been to Tours, France to have a good view of the castles in the Loire Valley. I had booked myself int he Etap Hotel, in Tours Centre after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and other site.
We stayed for 2 nights. I must say that the hotel is ideally located very close to the Tours train station and also very close to the Tourist Information centre. The rooms were neat and clean and the staff too were not bad. The breakfast was ok.

Basic but good value accommodation - with parking - proximity to train station was not a problem for noise as rooms very well glazed. Rooms clean with basic facilities, very student like accomodation. Breakfast was not full of choices, but plentiful, and good quality food. For the budget traveller

I stayed in a triple room at this hotel for two nights. My two friends and I stopped in Tours to explore the city and take in a wine tour--only to find out we needed a car to get to the vineyards and that biking wine tours didn’t exist in Tours! So we ended up taking the train+bus (as there was track work) to Chinon to attend the medieval festival. We had a fun time in Tours.

The hotel is in an okay location—about a 5-minute walk from the train station but about a 15-20 minute walk to the “happening” parts of the city where we spent most of our time -- Place Plumereau and along the Loire River. Perhaps, it was because we visited during August, but the area around the hotel was rather deserted but we didn’t feel unsafe.

The room was comfortable and clean—and actually rather large compared to the other hotels we stayed at during our trip. It included free wifi and had a tv, desk, two single beds and a bunk bed. The bathroom was a good size.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel to budget travelers who want to stay close to the train station. It is a no-frills hotel that, in truth, wasn’t memorable but met our needs and budget.
