Reviewed 12 April 2013

Really enjoyed staying here. Friendly and very central. Good size rooms and great for exploring Tours. Good prices. Discount parking was available.
We were given early check in and were grateful for this as it was a rainy day.

Stayed April 2013, travelled with family

This is another one of those hotels that you are so glad you have almost stumbled across-
Sometimes it happens when it's last minute booking and you kind of say ' That looks o.k.-it will do'and then when you arrive there ,it's that GEM!
It is run by the most polite & friendly family and the hotel is like that gorgeous step back in time we often look for and mostly find we are tripping over to get out- NOT HERE- it is full of family heirloom treasure and so proudly placed - I wanted to stay New Year's Eve to see if I could request Momma to play , perhaps ,one of the two Grand Pianos that are there !
Yes, the rooms are really proudly kept and I really didn't want to leave.
What an area -Chateaux Land - when I go back I'm going to stay a week , instead of 2 days and base myself plop there in de l' Europe!
P.S.The Asian' All you can Eat Restaurant 'across the Square is also Fantastic ,
even able to give your own requests for wok cooking with the chef-Where else in the world - FAB PEOPLE et PLACE !

Room Tip: All the rooms I'm sure would be good , but the higher you go and towards the fron , a lovely vie...

I thought that the people who worked there were very friendly and polite. The reception is manned 24/7 so there is always someone there if you require assistance or have any queries.

There are 5 floors in this hotel, my friends and I stayed on the 5th floor overlooking the train station and the park. Our room was clean and spacious for three people. It had one large wardrobe a large desk and also a TV on the wall. In the bathroom there was a shower and also a sink. There is also a hairdryer so there is less to pack in your luggage! The toilet is also in a separate room inside the bathroom. The layout and design of the bathrooms vary by rooms as in my other friends' room they had a bath tub as well. The towels are changed everyday and are always clean and enough for the three of us. There is also a small balcony which was nice as it meant we could bring in fresh air and light into the room.

The only thing I disliked about our room was that there was only one plug socket so that meant taking in turns to charge phones/laptops or use electrical items etc. Whilst on the subject of laptops, the hotel also has free Wifi which was surprisingly fast whenever I used it.

Outside our room was a large foyer with a large table and many sofa chairs. My friends and I spent much time out here as it was spacious and light. The breakfast here is the standard bread, croissants, cereals and meats. There were also: yoghurts, tea/coffee, hot chocolate, cheese, ham, spreads, a toaster, etc. The management team in the hotel kept everything well-stocked and cleaned down tables ready for the next customers to sit down.

I think the location of the hotel has to be the best point about it. It is situated literally 2mins from the Gare du Tours train station and is also within minutes form a variety of cafés, restaurants and shops.

Room Tip: the best room: 503, on 5th floor, with balcony

Thought I'd find it hard to locate this in Tours, looks far from the map, in reality Hotel de L'Europe is on your right side upon exiting Tours' main station which also means that you're at the centrum. Good news too is the tourist info center where you could book all your tours at reasonable cost which is few strides from the hotel on the same lane. And everything else in Tours is walkable from the hotel. Cost Euro42 for a single room.

+ Friendly and welcoming lady reception, shiny wooden hall flooring, clean toilet/shower ensuite, clean towels, small room/big bed, flat panel TV on wall, location is excellent.
Free internet connexion in room

- Not much space to move around - it's all the same I guess with most hotels in Europe so no complaints, no window view (fire exit?), ancient door key/lock mechanism.

It's a quiet hotel or maybe because my room is not along the main road - so the window view is a blessing after all.

Upon exiting Tours main train station, it's exactly on your right side.

Would recommend it highly based on price, location, staff, and clean room.

This hotel was probably quite grand in it's time but is now looking dated. It has a lot of character though, and is clean. The staff were very friendly,and wifi is provided free.

A great location, just across from the train station.

I would stay here again.

The Hotel L'Europe is just to the right of the central train station in Tours, excellent for a short-term stay. Run like a small boutique hotel, which in reality, it probably is - this hotel was perfect for our stay. The room was nicely appointed with a double and twin bed, armoire, small desk, and two chairs along with a bathroom that included a separate area for the toilet, shower, and sink. The free, fast wifi access was also very appreciated. There are several restaurants nearby and we found it overall to be very convenient.
