We stopped at the Mirabeau twice - on the way to and from Arcachon - to break up a long journey. Not being familiar with Tours, it was picked almost out of the hat, so it was great to find that the location, for car drivers, is excellent. The hotel is situated on the Boulevard Heurteloup, just a 5-minute walk from the city centre and station - and about 2 minutes from the main A10! Couldn's have been better. There's a plenty of free parking all around, and we had no trouble in finding a place on both occasions.
The rooms were large and comfortable, with a very 19th century size to them. The breakfast room was a little cramped, but there was a nice garden attached to it, and the usual variety of cereals, breads, ham, cheese, fruite, etc., was on offer. The staff were very friendly. As with all hotels on main streets, the quietness or otherwise of the sleeping can depend on location. We had a street overlooking room on night one - which actually wasn't too noisy - and a garden overlooking room on night two - which was perfect.
Like many older French hotels, there's no air-conditioning, so expect some heat on summer nights - and no lift to the upper two floors. Regardless of that, a very nice place to stay. Recommended.
