Location is fantastic, and the hotel staff friendly 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.
Staff - very friendly and helpful
The location was just where we needed to be. The front desk was very professional and helpful.
Style of the hotel especially the bedroom. The availabilty of the garage eas a bonusu No
Very easy to find - great location. Very nice staff.
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.
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.
Superb staff - some of the friendliest I´ve encountered. Breakfast finished at 10; restaurant closed on sundays (!)
Centrally located and very pleasant surroundings
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.
Excellent breakfasts and very helpful staff,especially the receptionists The shower tended to spray over the bathroom floor.
Easy to find, just what was expected. Nothing
Helpful staff with onward booking confirmation etc. Street noise from apartments opposite, so we had to use double glazing to sleep
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.
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
Nice hotel, very easy to find and convenient. Staff pleasant and good parking The air conditioning wasn't working
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.
Clean, always good to be able to say that, comfortable, good value for money, convenient location for town centre, helpful staff.
Clean, good location, wifi only in lobby and it closed early evening
The access to WI-FI is only at the reception but not at the rooms. The noise from TGV is "something"...
Tours! Great Location, Breakfast pretty good value and decent offering, Once you accept the basics the room and the amenities facilities etc. are fair. Housekeeping in Tours was good and efficient. Parking was good too and the Five Euros spent for the basement was well spent. On arrival we found that one of our rooms was not booked even though I had received the conformation e mail just that day. The young lady in reception could not find the third room booking, but she was very helpful. a room was given for the night at Mercure whose receptionist was seriously in need of some friendly training. She was grumpy and rude and we think she just had a bad day for which our friends were the victims a Receptionist later in the day Some telephone system on each floor even since it is not possible in rooms. In case you have an emergency there is nothing in your hotel after the receptionist leaves, no telephone no connection no nothing. windows! It was seriously hot int he rooms and we could do nothing to open the window which only opened two inches or so. I know that the railway tracks make lots of noise which is why you must have two double glazed windows, but if only this can be opened a bit to get in more ventilation.
Very comfortable hotel with friendly staff
No facility for storing soap & shampoo in the shower. Toilet seat wrong size therefore constantly moved around.
Close to the station Unkind staff
Best price offered ever matching perfectly for all backpackers! Not actually, but, we expect if the hotel'd provide guests more facilities as well as something's like the bathroom stuffs, that would be better!
Had good quality bikes for rent, staff was helpful and friendly, other than bar, public spaces very nice. Just over 1 km walk into town from hotel. Expensive breakfast not included in room charge. Better rates, including breakfast, available for walk up customers.
convenient parking, quick and easy booking in, maps of Tours noisy room (railway behind). Room needs updating. Can't have shower without soaking floor. room carpet dirty and stained - needs replacing. Smell of cigarette smoke in coridoor.WiFi didn't work. Personal message in envelope left on bed was stained.
Convenient parking. Reasonable value. A bit away from the old town.
Excellent, near train station if that is useful. Very good sized room.
The hotel was comfortable, close to the train station, and within walking distance to the heart of Tours. Breakfast was very expensive.
New hotel well appointed with clean comfortable rooms, small bar open till late, staff spoke good English, well appointed breakfast room and facilities. Car parking was charged.
Excellent breakfast and easy car parking. The hotel was at a fixed temperature. It was hard to cool the room because if you opened the window it was very noisy as the train station is very close to the hotel.
Nice clean comfortable room with good size bed Not much in the way of seating. Two nice armchairs would have made all the difference
Everything was good. The staff spoke good English and as with a lot of French hotels we did NOT get that sense of being unwelcome because we were English. There was very little to fault. If anything the prices are a bit on the high side but the quality is certainly there. We would certainly use this hotel again.
Quiet location and close to motorway. Too expensive for standard of rooms and especially for meals
Staff were really friendly even though we arrived really late. Good breakfast and great location for touring the Loire. Good range of information with in hotel about surrounding chateaux. Also useful map on ale from reception.
This was the first time we had used Mercure and it was superb, we shall definitely use them again. We ate outdoors in the lovely outdoor space and the staff were so friendly. We had booked the wrong date, and yet they immediately found us a nice room and away from where we might have been disturbed by a wedding party.
excelent value for money - great evening food.........great breakfast ( but a bit expensive at 12.50 euros.) ............. need better directions to locate hotel - but receptionis t excelent at directing us to the building - !!!
easy to find, good room The resturant staff were very unprofessional ,rude and did not make myself or my 7 guest very welcome, we arrived at about 2000 hours and it became obvious that the resturant staff didn't want to work any later!
Friendly staff, clean room, nice selection of breakfast.
Drunken guests screaming in restaurant, foyer & rooms went unchecked by staff. No sound insulation - you can hear guests in room above going to the toilet! We got up & left at 4.00 am. Staff ignored noise and were disinterested in our complaint. Room was utterly basic, grubby and the bed uncomfortable. We paid £75 for the night (breakfast not included) & £11 for 1 beer & 1 small wine
All staff were very friendly, and willing to help
The secure garage and the helpful receptionist. Only that on the night we were there the restaurant was closed for a function.
It has a garage and it has wifi (but ... read on) The location is way too far from the cute city center. The hotel has wifi, but to get a password you need to register with your e-mail address and then check your mail before you get access (duh!). The girl at the desk didn't really seem to see the problem, but eventually just gave me a password.
good location, fair cost
Good value for money. Good location for city centre. Good parking facilities. Rather tired decor
Within walking distance of old town centre (10-15 minutes). The room was small and in need of repainting, the carpets old and smelly. It is generally in need of refurbishing from the ground up. Not cheap as breakfast is extra at 8,50€ per head.
Excellent safe parking Very basic
The location. You can walk to the city centre from the hotel. Very handy for visiting. We had booked a doiuble bed and ask for a double bed rather than twin beds. We got twin beds pushed beside each other, at every move, they were moving. Not very comfortable. The price for car park - 7 euro - Thankfully you can park for free in the area.
Only 5 to 7 minutes walks to the old part of Tours.
Convenient to locate; secure parking; lift to all floors Further from the most interesting (touristique) parts of Tours than we had realised; lift does not descend to basement car-park
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.
The location is great, right by Hotel the Ville Room was a little too small, though comfortable
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.
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.
It's situated just in front of the train station.
Location - more or less in City centre nothing
Difficult to find for tourists not familiar with the city.
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.
friendly and helpful staff. information readily given.
Good location and helpful staff The dining / breakfast room has seen [much] better days. Go out for breakfast and find a nice boulangerie /cafe.
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.
Well located, beautiful view of the whole town and of the cathedral from our bedroom window.
convenience and location bathrooms could be a little fresher
The location, comfort, cost and assistance offered by staff
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
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.
The central location of the hotel
Had an excellent stay; friendly staff; excellent breakfast No canal plus
The location and friendly, helpful nature of the staff. Not a thing.
The wifi connection was very poor for the price paid
Very central location, being only meters from the train station. No
the staff were very helpful in all respects. a bigger business centre and a gym would have been nice!
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).
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.
Very friendly and helpful staff The Buffet breakfast was a little lacking.
Nice clean room. Spacious bathroom. 10 minute walk from Place Plumereau
We were delayed coming over to France and the Hotel and staff were great when we arrived after 01.00. Much appreciated!! NOTHING!!
position. close to center, but not right in.
Location Lack of Internet in the our room
The room is good and clean. It is too far from the train station.
Access to underground car park poor and dangerous to vehicle. Scraped rear tyre and wing mirror on exit. Difficult not to do so.Saw another guest do the same. Too narrow and turn too tight onto forty degree slope for modern cars. Will notify viamichelin website users of problem
Staff very good the lack of one refigerator in the room and/or a ice machine, but this happens with all hotels that we stay owne by Kyriad
The room and bathroom were spacious, warm and very comfortable with excellent cleaning each day. It was good to have a kettle. Breakfast was excellent but it would be good if it ended at 10am every day. On a break it is nice to lie in sometimes and not have to get up early especially when you are already adjusting to the time difference. The name is misleading as it was a long walk to the main tourist areas. We would have liked a mini bar in the room and also a waste paper basket in the bedroom as well as the small one in the bathroom. We had to get a cardboard box from a supermarket to put our rubbish in. This was the first hotel we have ever stayed in that didnt have a free street map in the room or available on the reception desk. There was no information about places to visit in Tours itself either in the room or in reception. Most hotels have booklets/leaflets in the room.
Very spacious room, on a very good and quiet location though need a 15- 20 minute walk to the city centre
It was spacious, very clean, the bed was very confortable, the room service was very good value. I liked the fact it was possible to make hot drink with a kettle in the room which is unual to see in French hotel, I liked the fact you could get cold water from the water cooling machine and hot drink from the coffee machine on the floor landing. I will recommend the hotel and restaurant. Nothing
THe staff were very pleasant, the room was clean and the food very enjoyable
Close to the old town centre, good price vs quality poor breakfast
the reception staff were courteous and efficient and the room clean and good value . we thought the food at dinner was extremely poor and only moderate at breakfast .we also misjudged the distance to tours centre and the sunday bus service was limited .
Breakfast buffet good. Staff efficient but not friendly. When I booked it was stated that there was free internet access. The hotel denied this but allowed us 30 minutes for free. Entrance to the parking lot can be a nightmare at times of heavy traffic as it is almost impossible to turn in coming from one direction.
The location and the staff's helpfulness. The rooms need to be upgraded. I felt that the bedding and towels were not very nice.
Quiet hotelm conveniently loacatred The restaurant has the same food day in day out and the breakfast buffet is very poor
Some of the staff were friendly and helpful. They asssisted us with a restaurant reservaton and taxi service. The hotel restaurant needs to be refurbished. The breakfast is ordinary. The communal areas of the hotel need a freshening-up.
It has been indicated in the introduction that the hotel is near the city center. But in fact it's rather difficult for the ones who havnt a car to go to the center.
There was a good view over part of the city during a long electrical storm: the lightning was spectacular. It's a long way from the city centre but the receptionist on duty was not sure of the nearest bus to the centre: some information on how the buses and the bus ticket system would help.
Friendly and well maintained and very helpful receptionist Breakfast, had puree apple and yoghurt. Apple fermenting and was ill the day after.
The staff were excellent even the cleaning lady there seems to be a great group of young enthusiastic people working at this hotel. The smiles and friendly faces were from what I saw a general attitude in the hotel. Room was clean and quiet and bed was comfortable. Walking into the centre of tours took me 25 minutes so not too far. Parking at back of hotel was handy and this hotel has easy access back to motorway a10. General for a budget hotel hard to beat and lobby restaurant area pleasent with outdoor seating.
Breakfast was good. TV was not working - Too noisy (groups of teenagers 1st night + another group on 2nd night !) - Almost 70 euros is too expensive for this kind of hotels -far from city center
The relation quality/price nothing, I recomend
The hotel was basic and inexpensive. The staff was friendly and the room was acceptable. There was free parking on site. It's far from the center of Tours, so if you don't have a car, I wouldn't recommend it. The room was a little cramped, but for the price, it wasn't a big deal.
A relatively short walk to the city centre and plenty of parking places. Quiet location, Rooms clean and spacious. Very helpful staff
Helpful staff and very comfortable room and located within walking distance of city centre.Excellent value for money
None No air conditioning, it was 32, the windows let in no air, the room was unbelievably hot and it was impossible to sleep as there was one fan to cover 2 rooms. The restaurant was reserved for a coach party so we ended up at McDonalds. The hotel was in a remote part of Tours with nothing in walking distance. It was faded and run down, although it was clean. There was no overnight staff and in the morning we were ripped off by the vending machine which took our money but did not deliver the goods.
The hotel was good for its price range and the staff helpful and friendly.
Good priced clean aircon accommodation. Walking distance to transport. Ideal base for visiting the Loire Valley. Internet excellent. We had booked a double, received twin beds which were rather small and very hard.
The cleaness of the room and facilities, near the town centre Need a safe in the room or at reception to put your valuables in.
We were checking in on a Sunday and did not realize that we needed to check in by 6 pm or that the reception desk would be closed. However, the clerk had stayed late because we were as yet unaccounted for and we were able to check in when we arrived around 11:30 pm. She was very welcoming and didn't seem to resent the fact that we were so late in arriving. Our room was a good value for the money and the staff was incredibly friendly. If the reception desk only has limited hours, it would be nice if the security code system would allow you to call the hotel staff person directly instead of having to use an outside line. We did not have a mobile phone with us and if another guest had not been leaving as we were arriving it would have been necessary for us to write down the number of the hotel staff member and then find a pay phone so that we could get into our room.
Nice, klean, comfortable, quiet room. At the arrival I discovered that my reservation was cancelled by unknown reason! But the receptionist found two rooms for us. Be aware not to arrive later then 21-00. You will find the door locked, reception closed!
design and cleanliness of the room.Location was convenient for the station and centre of town. good value for money.
It is like new, good size room with modern decor, very clean, and has an adequate kitchenette. It is an easy walk to the station, tourist office, and shopping. Did not like having only a hand held shower, Australians prefer a fixed shower we can get under.
Cleanliness of rooms decor - all too brown
We arrived after the hotel reception was closed but the instructions for getting access to the hotel and getting the key were explicit. I have no complaints.
The room was very spacious and comfortable. Kitchenette was very functional and modern. Great to be able to eat your breakfast at your leisure, although breakfast can be provided if you wish. Very clean and staff helpful. Great value for money
The location is close to the train station as well as to the very center of Tours. The elderly couple that runs the hotel was very nice, especially the gentleman, who quickly took my heavy suitcase to the second floor. Although his English was poor, he was very attentive and friendly. On the other hand, his wife speaks good English. My room was small but very cute. It has been recently renovated - the theme was of a bird in a cage :) The price (room without breakfast) was excellent for the location. I could not pay with my credit card, since there machine was out of order. It was not really big deal to pay in cash, since I stayed there only two nights without breakfast.
Nice and friendly couples who run the hotel, you can feel they provide service from their heart! The room in the upper most floor is special to us and we hv a wonderful moment there~ as always, no lift as we stay in 3rd floor and hv to go up and down everytime.
This lovely hotel is so impressive. The room is very well decorated and comfortable. The toilet is very clean. The landlady is nice. And the price is very very value for money.
Good location, quiet, character, cute internal courtyard available for an evening drink and welcoming freindly staff. Secure parking for bikes.
The atmosphere was really relaxed and it was more like a house than a hotel. The room was quite cold and I needed another blanket.
A good budget hotel from which to see tours and the local region. It is currently in the process of being renovated, however this did not cause any impact upon our stay.
It was easy to find. We have only very basic french skills and it was good that the staff were able to speak basic english - and much appreciated. I was surprised and disappointed to find no tea/coffee making facilities in the room. At this price in the UK this is standard. I also tried to access the wifi using the information provided by staff but could get no access at all. I didn't try to follow this up due to language.
Clean and comfortable room for the four of us. A bit hard to find. We only stayed as a overnight stop.
The staff were very friendly and helpfull The notes stated it was 10 minutes from Tours City Centre. which it is but only by Taxi or car, which it does not state. I think this should be made clearer. it's a good 45mins to an hour walk.
Free parking, easy access from the road. Very thin walls.
Location Glad it was for only one night. The room was dull and smelly. There was mould growing up the walls!!!
I liked the confort, price, location, and off course - the great breakfast. It was what i expected. The location from Garmin GPS was confusing. The number and the name aren`t easy to see from avenue refered.
Very goog breakfast. Shower tap jammed and hard to open / close.
easy access, parking, security, quiet no internet access, no laundry, bar ran out of beer.
the hospitality from the staff and different languages spoken by them
staffs are very kind, clean room no refrigerator, no hairdrier
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.
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)
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.
