“Bike tour hotel”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

Well I have been traveling in Europe for over 2 months. Have stayed in allot of hotel rooms! not a great first impression here, but have to say management did immediately adress my cleanliness concerns... And yes the room was cleaned. but really not a great place, yuck moldy bathrooms! Needs a little bleach and elbow grease ! would have to agree with Paul G post. as a travel agent, I look at All types of accommodations for clients as everyone has different tastes and budgets. travelling on a cycle tour right now will be letting the company know this hotel is in my opinion a sub par accommodation !

For the right type of people, on the right type of trip, this is an excellent hotel. If you are on a budget and want to be in the centre of Tours it is a great place for a short stay. It is right next to the train station and very near to the main high street with its variety of shops and places to get food. The room was very clean, the beds comfortable. The breakfast really is excellent as well for 9 Euros. You can eat a lot or good quality food and it really sets you up for the day. The friend I was with (we went for the Tour De France stage this year which ended then started again in the city) - loved the bar at the bottom of the road. There was wifi available in the room which worked, although not very strong.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The Japanese woman who checked us in had good enough English to be very helpful indeed whilst the other staff were as helpful as they could be despite having next to no English.

As to the negatives, the outside is very unpreposessing, it doesn't look great when you arrive and the name "Moderne" is not particularly useful for those who think the name means anything. It is an old style traditional hotel. The rooms are very small and there is no air conditioning so we had to sleep with the windows open, which meant there was a little noise but not too much. But we paid £56 a night, so we didn't really have the right to expect more. I don't think I would want to stay there for a week, but that's just me. Bear in mind no lift so if you have heavy cases it might be quite a struggle up their windy stairs.

Families were staying there so I assume there are family rooms, but I didn't see them.

If you are on a budget, don't have high expectations in terms of facilities, and are looking for a well run, clean hotel in a great location for Tours and the Loire in general. This is it.

Room Tip: I imagine the higher up rooms will be quieter at night, but the trade off is having to carry your ba...

If you are looking for a convenient location to hop on and off trains, budget sensible rates, safe area, wonderful front desk staff, and comfortable bed with a private bathroom, this is your hotel. I can list all the things this place is not, but it was the perfect choice for many travelers having an awesome time in the region. We saw many families with children too, a good sign too I'd say. We arrived early...too early and believe it or not, we got a room at 8 am!!! The wonderful lady checked her roster to find available clean rooms and even offered us something to drink. Wow! Happy Travels to all

It's dated for sure. But it wasn't billed as 5 stars. I stayed in April while they were ripping up the street outside my window which kind of killed the "peaceful street" motif. My biggest concern was I returned to find the door to my room unlocked - nothing was missing. I immediately went down to complain and the staff was very apologetic (Manager gave me a bottle of wine and the maid apologized profusely the next day). Good bathroom.

I stayed here with friends for three nights while touring Loire valley. The rooms were ample in size bathrooms were small but adequate . The street noise was not pleasant bit the room was quaint and comfortable and very clean which is so important to me. The breakfast was lovley each morning and the staff was helpful and friendly .

It's true that this is not a new luxury hotel, but we've stayed twice in two years because the owners, staff and location are great. Just around the corner from the Hotel de Ville and the main shopping street, it's just two blocks from the Vinci conference centre and tourist information office, and an easy walk from the train and bus stations (if you take the coach in from the airport), without the usual tackiness of hotels near stations. Good beds, good tv and a mini-bar; our room was on the first floor and had a large bathroom with bath/shower and plenty of hot water with good pressure. The walls are a little thin but we managed. Nice breakfast buffet plus croissants and plenty of coffee. Most importantly, the couple that own the hotel and their staff are friendly and helpful. We will certainly stay again. If you're there on a Saturday, take the short walk to the flower market in Blvd. Beranger, magnifique!

The hotel was very well located in central Tours, a few blocks from the train station.

Room decor is outdated, and closet is small. But the beds were comfortable with crisp white sheets. We slept well, It was quiet during our stay - it was in September when there are less tourists.

Family of four in room with two double beds - two night stay.
