“Great location for Loire Valley trip”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

The hotel is located across the street from Tours Center train station. There are several trains each hour from Tours Center to Tours - St Pierre to transfer other places. Hotel is a block away from the DaVinci conference center and Tourist office. USE the tourist office to book the minibus/van tours to the Chateaus and castles. The prices for souvenirs at the tourist office is actually the best I found.

The ONLY thing about the hotel that I found lacking was the Wifi signal was poor when the hotel was full in the late afternoon/evening. When everyone was at conference, it was fine.

Now all the GREAT stuff with the hotel. The bakery next door is the best in France, it is not open on the weekends though. Try the strawberry tart, it is AWESOME. Back to the hotel...it is VERY CLEAN, and the staff is great. They do take your key when you leave the hotel, that way you don't lose it. The rooms are kinda strange. One room is the sink, another room is the shower, and another the toilet. The building itself is very old, but kept immaculate.

Try Chef Duong's for Chinese food if you are in Tours.

It is a last minute booking. My boyfriend and I popped in to the hotel, been quoted €72 (excluded VAT) for a room with bath. The room was amazingly big and with balcony. Seperate bathroom and toilet. Their room keys were quite a design. Love it!

I stayed here for three weeks when studying in Tours. After travelling around Europe, I realise how good this place was!! The room is quite small but is has everything that you need - double bed, shower, sink, toilet, desk and a cupboard. The breakfast is excellent and there is a wide variety of croissants, cereal, fruit, yoghurt, baguette bread roll, jams, meat, cheese, juice, tea and coffee. The hotel is family run and they are very friendly. It is also located very centrally - across the road from the train station and a short walk from the main shopping street in Tours. I will definitely stay here when I come back!!

Excellent value for money. Great location next to the station and close to all facilities, clean, comfortable rooms, friendly staff who speak English and a reception that is open 24 hours a day. Perfect for my regular visits to Tours.

I just loved the quaint old place. The bathroom hiding behind what looked like the wardrobe door. The funny old key, the stairwell, the lift stopping at the half landing. Very clean, staff welcoming (mostly family) and friendly. We stayed four nights. Superbly close to the train station which was just marvellous as Tours was a base for visiting various places in the area.

The bed was hard and the wifi was a big problem. Even when reported to staff that it had stopped working they either said it was fine, or didn't know how to reboot the struggling system.

My daughter and I stayed here one night while visiting the chateaux of the Loire. It is right across from the train station and very convenient for spending a day in the city. The staff was welcoming and the breakfast was excellent. Our room was clean and cozy. The restaurant next door, L'Odeon, was outstanding.

Reviewed 31 July 2013

Three of us stayed here for two nights and we were given a good sized room with three single beds and en suite bathroom. It was a very comfortable stay. We really liked the balcony overlooking the beautiful building of Tours train station, was great for some people watching. It has an old fashioned, quirky feel to it but everything works fine. We were given fresh towels the next day as well.

We asked to stay for another night last minute, the staff were very helpful and flexible in accommodating us. Staff were generally helpful but their English isn't great so is easier if you speak a bit of French- if not the Tourist office is great.

Hotel de L'Europe is right by the train station. If you just walk out and look to your right it's right there. It's about a 10 minute easy walk into the old town and 30 second walk to the tourist office.
