“Very enjoyable!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

The Best Western Central Hotel in Tours is conveniently located right downtown and provided us with beautiful, very clean rooms and generously sized bathrooms. We were able to park in the hotel's own lot. Within just a few minutes walk we came upon a lively street filled with bistros and restaurants. The hotel staff offered a very friendly greeting and pleasant service throughout our stay. Overall Tours does not seem to have the charm of smaller towns like Blois and Amboise but we did enjoy our stay at this hotel. One little complaint: A breakfast buffet was offered but for a ridiculously high charge of nearly double what we paid everywhere else for the same continental offerings. That was a little off-putting and so we ate breakfast on route to Noirmoutier instead.

We too, like a previous poster, have room 440 and it was part of a Loire à Vélo bike package. Great room and great view! We are very pleased with the hotel, the location and the staff. Tours itself seems just ok (we came from the very charming Amboise) but happy with BW Central.

I had never stayed in Tours before and choose this hotel for its location and I was not wrong in that. The hotel is only a short walk from the long walking street where many of the restaurants and cafes are located. The hotel has parking in front of it. The service was nice and the room was of a nice size and I had a huge bath room - almost the same size as my room. The furniture were getting a bit old but it was in general a good hotel given the price.

Lovely hotel in central location! We stayed as part of our bike tour package and had a Room 440 on the top floor. Great view over the roof tops to the Tours cathedral, from both bedroom and bathroom. The bed was comfortable, furnishings characteristic of area and the bathroom was sumptuous. A bath after 4 days of riding was bliss. Breakfast buffet was fairly standard and OK although not quite as fresh as some we've had. However we recommend the hotel.

Great location in Tours but Tours isn't what you are going there to see. It's a perfect spot to stay however for visiting castles. We saw 6 castles in 2 days, all within 30 minutes of the hotel. The hotel itself was great - we had no problems with wifi and the room was huge compared to Paris standards. There is a safe in the room and parking was 10E per day. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Restaurants don't generally open for dinner until 7 pm so plan accordingly. Defintely eat at Leonard de Vinci - very good and great service there.

Although the rooms might seem as if they were designed by someone lacking passion, this bed is one of the best I ever slept in. The hotel provides excellent access to the city center. Where trendy bars and glorious restaurants await.

Just completed a quick motorbike tour of a few great French cities and last minute hotels...they were all good but this hotel was certainly the low point...the car park was the highlight!. The hotel was just old fashioned in a grubby sort of way...it was not a place to hang around but it is conveniently located.
