    Superb

    Rooms surprisingly spacious for an older European hotel. Worked well for a family of four with school aged children. Comfortable beds and nice furnishings. Lighting was not great and not enough outlets for electronics. Wi-fi in rooms and around hotel good. Good location for getting to highways and train stations.

    The suites are only on the street side, so little bit noisy is there was a siren in the night or early morning. Not enought lighting or electrical outlets.

    It is not a boutique hotel, but an old fashioned one. The room is very large and quite confortable, and the restaurant has a gourmet food and honest wines. Good local and easy parking nearby.

    Fabulous

    Great location and beautiful rooms. The building faces a lovely center with the Hotel DeVille across the street

    We didn't get the room on the front of the hotel as promised. Our room was facing the back of the hotel- looking at the rooftop of the lower floor. Not pretty at all! We were told that we could move but the staff never followed up with a new room, even after several requests. We were not compensated for the mistake even though we paid for a superior Premium room. I'm not sure if I would recommend this hotel since we were very disappointed with the location of our room and being over-charged. I really looked forward to a room with a view of the lovely center

    location was near Gare du Tours and office of Tourism. It takes only 3 minuts from hotel to gare or office. Room was spacious, very comfortable, and romantic. Wifi worked well. Breakfast was so so.

    The time of Room service and restaurant was limited, especially weekends.

    The hotel's location was convenient for exploring the chateaux in the area. Elegantly furnished, the hotel felt very regal. The room was clean, comfortable and luxuriously outfitted. The staff was efficient and helpful. My stay here was altogether first rate. I would definitely stay here next time I am in the area.

    The fact that I had to leave so soon.
