Had an excellent stay; friendly staff; excellent breakfast No canal plus
Very central location, being only meters from the train station. No
The wifi connection was very poor for the price paid
The central location of the hotel
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.
The location and friendly, helpful nature of the staff. Not a thing.
the staff were very helpful in all respects. a bigger business centre and a gym would have been nice!
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.
Superb staff - some of the friendliest I´ve encountered. Breakfast finished at 10; restaurant closed on sundays (!)
Style of the hotel especially the bedroom. The availabilty of the garage eas a bonusu No
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.
The location was just where we needed to be. The front desk was very professional 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.
Very easy to find - great location. Very nice staff.
Staff - very friendly and helpful
Location is fantastic, and the hotel staff friendly and helpful
Great staff. Great location. Seems to be run down and needs a face-lift internally.
Centrally located and very pleasant surroundings
Helpful staff with onward booking confirmation etc. Street noise from apartments opposite, so we had to use double glazing to sleep
The hotel is located not far from train station and a short walk away from the town centre which is great
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.
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.
Good hotel with reasonable price. Very nice breakfast, close to the train station.
The great location to the city centre and near Tours railway station. The staff was helpful and free use of the internet.
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 :)
Excellent breakfasts and very helpful staff,especially the receptionists The shower tended to spray over the bathroom floor.
Nice hotel, very easy to find and convenient. Staff pleasant and good parking The air conditioning wasn't working
Convenient parking. Reasonable value. A bit away from the old town.
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.
The hotel was comfortable, close to the train station, and within walking distance to the heart of Tours. Breakfast was very expensive.
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.
Excellent, near train station if that is useful. Very good sized room.
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.
Very helpful staff. Cozy. Beds not so comfy.
perfect and comfortable room. within walking distance to city center. free parking just in front of the hotel.
Very warm welcome from the owner who took the time to tell us about the city as it was our first visit. Very good breakfast.
The welcome was very friendly and the location was perfect. We also loved their dog, Timmy - who was not by the way, allowed in the hotel itself. Parking was advertised as "On site", this is not correct - the only parking was in the road.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is a short distance from the town centre.
Hospitality of the staff Bad work of the shower
THe staff were very pleasant, the room was clean and the food very enjoyable
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.
Close to the old town centre, good price vs quality poor breakfast
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 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
Very spacious room, on a very good and quiet location though need a 15- 20 minute walk to the city centre
The location and the staff's helpfulness. The rooms need to be upgraded. I felt that the bedding and towels were not very nice.
Very goog breakfast. Shower tap jammed and hard to open / close.
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.
staffs are very kind, clean room no refrigerator, no hairdrier
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
Location Glad it was for only one night. The room was dull and smelly. There was mould growing up the walls!!!
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.
Free parking, easy access from the road. Very thin walls.
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.
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 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.
great central location, very clean rooms and bathrooms, good size! overall very pleasant. the water pressure kept alternating in the shower.
The location is great, right by Hotel the Ville Room was a little too small, though comfortable
It's situated just in front of the train station.
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 - more or less in City centre nothing
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).
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.
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.
The location is excellent, parking at 7 Eur/day is nerby
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.
Excellent location within walking distance to old town, shopping, rue colbert (restaurants).
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 location, the room and first of all the kindness of the managers everything was very good
The rooms where spacious, modern and immaculate. A short walk to a huge host of restaurants and attractions.
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.
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.
It was located within easy reach of the old city but close enough to the modern are that walking into each area was quick
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.
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
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.
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.
The friendly atmosphere and location for transport and sightseeing.It is also quiet throughout the night.
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.
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.
Very comfortable hotel with friendly staff
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
Close to the station Unkind staff
The access to WI-FI is only at the reception but not at the rooms. The noise from TGV is "something"...
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!
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.
No facility for storing soap & shampoo in the shower. Toilet seat wrong size therefore constantly moved around.
Central, very convenient, nice atmosphere. Side street room noisy at night
it's the best two-star hotel I have stayed in in France
Good location and stylish decor. Rooms and corridoors noisy.You can hear other people using toilet/shower. Impersonal, small and poky.
Location, location, location no
I found it very comfortable and welcoming. Beautifully appointed room and the hotel felt very 'French' to me. I have already recommended it to friends in Bordeaux! Thank you!
Its location very close to the center of the old city Air conditioner did not work well. In summer it is O.K. but in winter I am afraid.....
Ideally located. The manager who moved us to rear of hotel after complaining about noise in front room. The situation of the front room initially given to us. We had to be moved to rear of hotel because of noise from bar/cafe strip below hotel which made it impossible to sleep
I liked the beautifull interior of the breakfast room. It was terribly noisy at night outside of the hotel. We couldn't sleep at all!
Well located, beautiful view of the whole town and of the cathedral from our bedroom window.
friendly and helpful staff. information readily given.
The location, comfort, cost and assistance offered by staff
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.
Difficult to find for tourists not familiar with the city.
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
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.
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.
convenience and location bathrooms could be a little fresher
The room was basic, but very clean, comfortable, and had a great balcony. It was also very quiet. It was in a good location, within walking distance of the train station and fun areas of the town. We did not realize that it is actually closed from 12:30 pm-5:00 pm so there was no way to drop off our luggage.
The staff had made a lot of effort to allow us access to the hotel even though we arrived long after the reception closed On the other hand at the price we paid we expected a hotel that had 24 hour reception and at least a kettle in the room. This was a very overpriced budget hotel and although the staff were helpful we were very disappointed with the standard of accomodation which did not reflect the price charged
Central location, on-site private garage parking, very helpful and friendly staff, modern and clean room. Not much room in the bathroom.
It was in a good position from the town, the staff were very helpful, the breakfast were good.We stayed twice at the hotel.
Clean. Friendly staff. Great breakfast. Central location. No
The staff were very friendly.
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!
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 - !!!
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.
Friendly staff, clean room, nice selection of breakfast.
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.
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.
All staff were very friendly, and willing to help
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
Nice clean comfortable room with good size bed Not much in the way of seating. Two nice armchairs would have made all the difference
Very friendly and helpful staff The Buffet breakfast was a little lacking.
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
position. close to center, but not right in.
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.
We were delayed coming over to France and the Hotel and staff were great when we arrived after 01.00. Much appreciated!! NOTHING!!
Location Lack of Internet in the our room
The room is good and clean. It is too far from the train station.
Nice clean room. Spacious bathroom. 10 minute walk from Place Plumereau
It was a basic and chep place (for France) near the old town center. Nothing to like or dislike.
Hotel is very conveniently located within the city. Close to the main shopping areas, train station and to the old town. Room was very clean and modern. Rooms may be on the small side for some. A greater choice at breakfast would be nice, but overall quality was good.
No elevator. Not suitable for elder people or with special needs
Very good location, free internet in the room
It was very close to the cathedrale and art museum, and within walking distance of the train station. No luggage lift.
Nice, modern, clean rooms.Nice breakfast. No staffed reception on the weekend.
