Reviewed 4 October 2013

Stayed in a triple room which was very spacious and clean. Hotel is located on a street with a great choice of restaurants and bars. The owner recommended a few local restaurants (Le Laurenty and Au Lapin Qui Fume), both of which we enjoyed. Breakfast at the hotel is available for 7 euros pp (toast with various spreads, croissants, yoghurt, tea/coffee/hot chocolate). During breakfast the owner's cute King Charles spaniel sometimes came out to say hello to guests and loves to be patted. The owner of the hotel was very friendly and helpful, and spoke good English.

A few things to note - it can get noisy in the street at 1-2am so I'd recommend requesting a room at the back (facing the courtyard) if you are a light sleeper. Side street parking is available nearby but it's best to get a park just before 6:30pm, and then it is free until 9am the next day.

If you are looking for value in Tours centre, this place should be on your list. Small family run hotel right amongst the action with nice helpful owners. Refurbished rooms with great showers. Get a room at the rear as the street is buzzing. Pleased with our choice.

The Colbert is on a busy street full of varied restaurants.The owners are very welcoming and helpful,this is our fourth stay and is a perfect stopover on return trip north.
The rooms overlooking courtyard best but street noise not that bad.

Room Tip: Parking available around corner at meter.

I loved this place and only regret that I couldn't stay longer. The owners were very lovely and helpful. Spacious and clean rooms. Mine had a balcony overlooking the street below. Located on a busy little laneway with great restaurants and within walking distance to the attractions. Highly recommended.

Hotel Colbert had the friendliest most helpful owner we’ve ever encountered, he just could not do enough to make our stay wonderful. Location is brilliant, right in the centre of things, but our courtyard facing room was very quiet. The owner gave us a selection of recommendations for dinner. Loved our room (which seemed especially huge after Paris), and slept very well. Modern bathroom with huge shower head. Breakfast was fabulous, well worth the price (which from memory I think was €7). Only a 2min walk to the Loire River, with its lovely bridges and also close to the Tours Cathedral. We arrived after 5pm and were able to find onstreet parking nearby. All in all, a great hotel.

We stayed here with friends for a night and we are so glad we did.
I will say it is a little tired but the current owner has owned it for two years and is self renovating it. We stayed in the red room, being Europe you have to climb stairs (be prepared) this is one of the renovated rooms, might not be quite my thing, but it was well done.
They have the most lovely courtyard where we enjoyed a drink before heading out for the evening.
Breakfast was lovely served by the owner, he was really lovely and took time to chat and help us any way he could.

Emmanuelle and Olivier Marbotte run their 30 room hotel with a great deal of attention and care. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms have plenty of hot water. Everything is spotlessly clean. It is a great starting point to discover Tours. The hôtel is situated on a pedestrian street with plenty of restaurants. It is close to the City centre and the university. I was in town for 2 nights with my 11 year old son and we were well looked after...restaurant recommandations, sites to visit, taxis ordered and early breakfasts. And the rates are really reasonable.
