Location is central: close to the railway station, but far enough not to hear and see those people grouping near the station. Also very close to tourist office, old town and Hotel de Ville (just in front). The room was great - spacious, with a comfortable sofa in front of tv, a desk, enough room to even have a morning gymnastics)). It was very quiet which is definitely a plus! Beautiful lobby. The price af breakfast 18 euros is too high.
Great staff. Great location. Seems to be run down and needs a face-lift internally.
Staff - very friendly and helpful
Superb staff - some of the friendliest I´ve encountered. Breakfast finished at 10; restaurant closed on sundays (!)
Location is fantastic, and the hotel staff friendly and helpful
The hotel is right in the centre of Tours so very convenient for sight-seeing, restaurants and shopping. It is also close to the train and bus stations. It was clean and comfortable. Parking is very limited - there is a public carpark nearby but it was very full and we were lucky to get a space. The room we had was comfortable but being at the top of the hotel, it was dark with only one small window - a draw back on a sunny day.
Style of the hotel especially the bedroom. The availabilty of the garage eas a bonusu No
Centrally located and very pleasant surroundings
The location was just where we needed to be. The front desk was very professional and helpful.
The hotel room is newly renovated. It located very close to the Train Station (within 10 minutes walk) and the shopping centre (within 3 minutes walk) of Tours.
Very easy to find - great location. Very nice staff.
The great location to the city centre and near Tours railway station. The staff was helpful and free use of the internet.
Good hotel with reasonable price. Very nice breakfast, close to the train station.
Found the hotel very central with easy access to tourist office shops and restaurants. found directions to hotel not quite exact it would have been handy to know that the train station was beside the hotel & would have been much easier to find. Tea and coffe facilites in the room would also be a great idea.
Nice hotel, very easy to find and convenient. Staff pleasant and good parking The air conditioning wasn't working
Helpful staff with onward booking confirmation etc. Street noise from apartments opposite, so we had to use double glazing to sleep
Our room was warm, quiet and comfortable. The hotel was in a side street very close to the station, but not affected by noise from it. Being on the fourth floor, there was a small balcony in the mansard; although the view was only of roof-tops, this might have been beneficial in warmer weather. Access to the lift was easy, and there was a spacious reception and breakfast area. There was a wide range of choices at the buffet. The dark decor in the room would not be to everyone's taste. Be warned - we were unable to use the underground car-park because of the restricted headroom. On enquiring, we were told that it was 2m, but our vehicle at 1.97m certainly would not fit, and so we were obliged to feed a fairly greedy parking meter a short walk from the hotel.
Excellent breakfasts and very helpful staff,especially the receptionists The shower tended to spray over the bathroom floor.
Very good rooms and breakfast. Do not be put off as you approach the hotel because it looks small and in a back street. It is actually large and in the heart of the city (5 mins walk). Would love to go back to Tours and would definitely stay here again. Watch the car park - it fills up and space is very tight for manoevering - be first in and last out :)
The hotel is located not far from train station and a short walk away from the town centre which is great
Location is good and easy to find. Compared to big city's hotel is cheap. Both the night shift and morning shift staff are not really nice and friendly, that is Dec 22nd night and Dec 23th morning. Room is not really designed for 3 people stay, they just added an small bed at the conrner.
The hotel has a great location! Very close to tgv station, and to the center of the city. The bedroom is big and confortable. The bathroom is very clean. Love it! The staff was not very helpful with our difficult to park our car ( $e 10/day), and it was hard to comunicate in english.
The location is great, right by Hotel the Ville Room was a little too small, though comfortable
Excellent location, right near the main railway station, and a very modern, comfortable room. The breakfast was over-priced and we only ate there once.
Excellent location - close to the city center and the railway. Very comfortable room. Excellent value for money Internet services way too expensive for nowadays (when such services should already be like TV or radio).
great central location, very clean rooms and bathrooms, good size! overall very pleasant. the water pressure kept alternating in the shower.
The chef special evening meal was excellent value, and tasted good as well. The staff in the resturant were also very friendly and attentive.
It's situated just in front of the train station.
Location - more or less in City centre nothing
Well located, beautiful view of the whole town and of the cathedral from our bedroom window.
Difficult to find for tourists not familiar with the city.
Staff were extremely friendly and helpfull. Checking in and out was simplicity itself. Staff were very knowledgable about places of interest and restaurants etc. Breakfast charges were quite high per person when a local cafe/bar could provide the same for a quarter of the price.
Just about everything, but in particular the friendly and helpful staff, the character of the hotel and its location. One thing: although our room was pleasant, comfortable and had a lovely view, the location of the toilet in a 'cupboard' right next to the bed (rather than in the bathroom, as is usual) was not really acceptable.
friendly and helpful staff. information readily given.
The location, comfort, cost and assistance offered by staff
it was close to main shoping area and the old town, staff were helpful, but we still had a language problem. our room was on the small size, we expected larger as we were staying 4 nights. it is a small hotel, as a result there was very little guest activity, also it is a nice walk from the railway station.
convenience and location bathrooms could be a little fresher
Staff were very welcoming, the hotel was ideally located and very comfortable Parking was not easy at the moment as building works are taking place especially as a charge of 10 euros was made, also the breakfast was fairly ordinary
Good location and helpful staff The dining / breakfast room has seen [much] better days. Go out for breakfast and find a nice boulangerie /cafe.
The central location of the hotel
The location and friendly, helpful nature of the staff. Not a thing.
Free upgrade to a superior room (very large and spacious!)! We assumed that since we booked through Booking.com that we would get one of the few rooms that have not been re-done - but when we checked in, the courteous staff informed us that we had been upgraded to a superior room - which turned out to be the largest room in the hotel - quite nice! For 77,20 euros, we stayed in an excellent room, with a booking that included the 12 euros per person breakfast - excellent! Slight difficulty parking...the hotel is in the same square as the train station, and being a busy city, the parking for the station was full. We ended up parking in another structure about a 8 minute walk from the hotel - same price as advertised though (8 euros for 24 hours).
The wifi connection was very poor for the price paid
Had an excellent stay; friendly staff; excellent breakfast No canal plus
I felt the whole experience was positive and the staff pleasantly unobstrusive . Dearth of english language tv.
Nice hotel, convienient location city centre parking, TGV station, good food, nice staff - Internet WiFi did not work, (we were working, so important) otherwise excelent The WiFi, should have worked - they could fix that. Otherwise it was the best.
the staff were very helpful in all respects. a bigger business centre and a gym would have been nice!
Very central location, being only meters from the train station. No
large clean room-manageres helpful providing maps of area - english spoken.
Staff was very friendly, it had a lift, which was handy with luggage,room was spacey, & comfortable.also, well located. Nothing!
Friendly staff who spoke English and its close location to city centre. Bathroom facilities adequate but not easy to have a shower as bath did not have a shower screen or curtain to stop water flooding bathroom floor.
20 minute walk to the old town. Room old but clean and comfortable. Ample street parking. Receptionist could speak english - but chose who she used it with! No tea or coffee facilities in room.
I booked two rooms for 4 nights - one for my husband and myself, and a single room for our friend. The staff were extremely helpful. The rooms were simple, but comfortable. The location on a boulevard with a beautiful tree-lined central walkway was excellent - in walking distance of the Gare, the Tourism Office, and the beautiful Cathedral.
Friendliness of staff. Size of rooms were enormous! Good breakfast in pleasant surroundings
The hotel is just 10 mins walk away from the train station and very near to the Tourism Information Centre. The room is big for european standard. Clean and very confortable. Free Wifi included makes it very convenient for communications. Everything is up to my expectation.
Usual level of room - on the upper end of basic, but great value for money. Coverlets on beds are starting to 'look' a bit dated - although not actually dirty.
reasonably priced no air conditioning
Value for money (room & breakfast), bathroom and toilet recently renovated, heating and air conditioning working well, silent room despite 1st floor facing the road. Beds didn't have duvets and we were unsure if the linen was changed/washed.
very clean and tidy the drinks bar did not open during my stay - therefore had to go offsite for refreshment
A comfortable, good value hotel with helpful staff, and an excellent location for exploring the city.
The friendly staff and the room: quality/price ratio absolutely high, i wonder why it has been given only two stars...
Good location, clean room, helpful staff.
Excellent location near city centre and very good secure parking. Rooms recently refurbished. friendly staff and adequate breakfast
The Location and the availability of garage parking
The position was great, near to all the tourist places of intrest with plenty of eating places near the hotel. The cold shower, had several attempts but never got anything but freezing cold water.
Charming, extremely clean, attention to the details : linen quality, chimney..
this hotel was pleasant and clean with good stuff. but the rate is high compare to hotel facilities.
It is in a very good position near the railway station and the congress center. Some of the hotel staff was not very helpful and was not speaking well the English language. Also, a lot of noise of people walking the stairs and inside the rooms could be heard due to the old wooden floors.
The location is very good. Very near all the transport links and parking (On meter) was outside
The location was ideal. The staff were friendly and the price was right. Tours is a lovely city for walking and the hotel was in a perfect location for "new town" shopping and "old town" dining. Parking was convenient and easy. Breakfast offering could have had at least one protien choice such as yogurt.
The friendly atmosphere and location for transport and sightseeing.It is also quiet throughout the night.
Hotel Moderne is a conveniently located, budget hotel in the center of Tours close to the railroad station, the tourist office, and many different restaurants. It is an older hotel with a certain charm. There is good cable TV with French and international channels. The staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are small, but adequate. Bathroom facilities are somewhat cramped, but the shower space was adequate, and the water pressure good. There is no elevator in the hotel. The WI-FI was not used.
Friendly staff. The hotel has a cat. Cosy feel. Lacks an elevator, bad idea if you're travelling with lots of luggage. The water heaters are turned off at night, forget about showers before sleeping. Not enough electric outlets. Bad internet connection which frequently disconnects. No "do not disturb" signs. On the last day, I was forced to check-out at 8 am in the morning for some reason.
Beautiful Hotel, close to the city center, Friendly staff, loved the coffee machine they had really good coffee and it was a great price.
The location, comfort (clean and ventilated as we asked) and price. Nothing.
Position in Tours excellent, Very helpful staff, Very clean and well presented throughout.
The location is excellent, parking at 7 Eur/day is nerby
Excellent location within walking distance to old town, shopping, rue colbert (restaurants).
It was located within easy reach of the old city but close enough to the modern are that walking into each area was quick
Great location, great decor and lovely bed. Better than pretty well every 2 star hotel we stayed in during our 2 week trip. Should definitely be more than one star. ... no lift, but no big deal.
The rooms where spacious, modern and immaculate. A short walk to a huge host of restaurants and attractions.
It was very clean, well designed, comfortable and the staff were very welcoming. We were surprised to see it has just one star, but the fact it has no lift may account for that.
stayed in the larger room. new, clean. good value and worth the few dollars more for the bigger room. good breakfast. internet available.
The managers were very friendly and the room exceeded our expectations
The hotel is within walking distance of the train station, a huge plus! On your way you pass the Tourist Bureau for Tours, France, so you can get info before you even get to the hotel. Lovely staff; who were very helpful in booking a first-rate truly fabulous well-known local restaurant for dinner (La Ruche, which means The Beehive). Breakfast was very nice; I recommend that future guests do have the 7.5 euro breakfast. it was really great, no complaints at all.
The location, the room and first of all the kindness of the managers everything was very good
This is a very nice small hotel (although it cost the same as the Grand Hotel Poitiers which is in a different class). The man on reception was very helpful although he spoke rather rapidly which made directions rather hard to follow. Tour has an 'interesting' one way system which could cause the driver and map reader to become somewhat stressed.
The hotel is perfectly situated between the cathedral and the old town of Tours. It has recently be renovated and satisfies all the needs of a 3* hotel, it is really worthed more stars. The perfect place to stay and staff was very helpfull.
The double room we booked was supposed to be a Special Offer, however it was a tiny attic room with barely enough space for a bed. We requested a room with more space and had to pay full rate........When I quiried prices I found there had been no special rate.........also the climb up the stairs was very difficult for us
This is a very clean hotel and very central in the city. A five minuts walk to the Cathedral and the railway station and for shopping. The staff is absolutely very friendly en helpful. Modern bathroom and newly furnished rooms.
Room was clean and of adequate size Being a single woman just off the plane train, the lack of English was difficult and I probably should have been at a larger hotel where communication was easier.
The owner was extremely friendly and gracious. The location was perfect- so close to the beautiful Musee de Beaux Arts, as well as shopping just a few streets away. Also, an easy walk to the train station.
Very cheap, clean, attractive decor, charming and helpful receptionist Room was small
good value, very central bathroom was clean but very tiny. anyone bigger than size 10 will struggle to move there without opening the door ;-))
Location rooms and wardrobe space a little to small but cosy
The proprietor was very helpful, giving us information on things to do and restaurants. She was also very helpful in helping us figure out travel arrangements when there was a transport strike on the day of our departure. Our room was simply, but very nicely decorated. It was also very clean and comfortable.
Nice staff. Excellent decoration and style. Very clean facilities. Location was good. Good value for money. Went to hotel to drop off some bagguge at around 2pm but nobody was there to open the door for us, maybe just an isolated incident. No reception of Wifi in our room, needed to go to the lobby.
Very central location in Tours,close to sights and railway station. Good value for money. Comfortable room, reasonably priced breakfast. Room, and especially bathroom were quite small, travellers should be aware that stairs are narrow and steep.
The staff were very approachable, friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was very good as well.The location was excellent for finding it coming in from the motorway.
Yes, the floorboards from the rooms above us made incredible noise - no good when trying to get to sleep, no hot water one morning, staff could only say this isn't normal and didn't attempt to fix. Kettles not provided but limited amount available to borrow. Lastly parking limited and very squashed.
The hotel is quite small and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The Patron even speaks English! Breakfast is excellent. We had no problems at all despite the external refurbishment work. We would stay there again soon but they are solidly booked for the coming month.
Perfect location, lovely helpful staff, comfortable room for one or two night stay, good breakfast, the best kind of really French small hotel. You need to be a confident driver to park your car!
The breakfast was delicious with lots of options and friendly service.
Stayed one night and can fully recommend. The room was very quiet and tidy, bathroom (and the room itself) was spacious compared to any other 2 star hotel I've stayed in, and the reception was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent.
very good location, very clean. Good value for money. Nothing
Great breakfast, comfortable bed, safety Very hard to find
Good hotel, very central. Comfortable beds and excellent breakfast, albeit rather pricey. Bathroom has only hand held shower and very narrow tub. Parking extremely difficult.
l The only downside of this hotel is the parking, which is a tight squeeze. Street parking can difficult at certain times of the day.
Located in the center of the city, near the riverside you can explore Tours very easily. The hotel has rooms with windows directly to the place de la resistance, which can be very noise during the whole night, especially on saturdays and sondays.
Excellent location and pleasant room The bed was not comfortable and there was intrusive music noise until the very early hours of the morning from a nightclub within the same building complex - to minimise this, ask for a room that faces into the square, although the square can also be noisy too. Ideal for people who sleep heavily or have heavy duty earplugs. The reception desk has limited opening hours which is inconvenient for left luggage and the room servicing times are variable. Don't be deceived, the web-site offers no discount to rack rate.
Room was a good size. The hot water did not always work first time, and there is a disco open until 5am next door ( not Monday's)
Stayed 4 nights at various stages on our trip around the Loire Valley. The hotel is in a great location close to the nightlife, shops and restaurants of Tours. Be warned at weekends there is a nightclub located close by and the music can be heard somewhat in some of the rooms. Avoid Room 15/16 on a friday or saturday night. The girl on reception advised of this when we arrived. She was also very helpful when i explained I had some alergies.Our first room was on the very top floor and is a bit of pain due to no lifts to carry bags upto. The second room we has was Room 9 which has a nice position overlooking the square and its very quaint. We did not have the breakfast so cant commment. I would recommend this hotel to other people Small things No coffee/tea making facilities in the room and for some the music on weekends might be offputting.
The hotel was very clean and in an excellent location. Staff were friendly. The room was nicely decorated. The lack of a lift is a pain. Did not like the absence of tea-making facilities and a waste bin in the room. Towels were thin and small.
