Grand Hotel de Tours

Reviewed 13 September 2011

They gave us a huge room with two beds plus a pull out. By far the largest hotel room we had in France. Big bathroom with deep tub. Our children loved it. Location is close to everything especially the train station. Breakfast buffet was great and the staff very friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for a family room.

The Grand hotel may have seen better days, but it's in a good location, staff are friendly and rooms were clean and a good size. It makes a good base for a short stay in Tours. We booked a quad room for us and the two children via booking.com and they gave us two interconnecting rooms 350 & 334 for the same price which was perfect. 334 had a nice large bath ideal after a long drive! The toilet in one room wasn't flushing and was fixed while we were out and about so full marks there. The staff booked us a dinner at Le Turon that we'd highly recommend. Breakfast was a buffet, plenty of choice and a relaxed affair. There is 24 hr underground parking at the front of the hotel for 8 euros a day. Behind the hotel is a pedestrianized street with bars, cafes and clothes shops. Rue Colbert with all the restaurants and Cathedral is 15 mins walk as is the park to the south worth hunting out as it has a childrens play area, lovely trees and flowers and lots of conker trees.

Room Tip: 334 & 350 interconnect ideal for 2+2

We traveled to France with family. In the Tours stopped at the Grand Hotel. This is a nice old hotel, just after the renovation. Very convenient location, situated in the center near the railway station. Since we came to visit the chateaux of the Loire, we rented a car. The hotel has kindly provided such a service. The girl at the reception shown on the map the place that we could visit, she is qualified and fluent in English. The surrounding area has several good restaurants that we visited in the evening. Hotel staff courteous. The room was always fresh & Clean, quiet and peaceful. We had a great time.Thank you. I am pleased to come back again.

First of all i want to admire that it's best location for hotel,i was surprised by friendly and attentive stuff.Our room was great,quite bigger than I expected because we all know how small rooms are in the hotels in France. Also room was renovated and bathroom was new and well equipped.I admit good breakfasts with variety of cheese,sausage and bread,not just standart croissant,butter and jam. I will put this hotel in my favorites and next time if I'm here I will definitely pick this one.

We stopped in Tours for one day and stayed at the Grand Hotel. The reception is ok. Though they are trying to give you helpful information they often send you to the tourist office nearby.
The room was spacious, had two bathrooms but seemed a little old. The door of one bathroom was almost impossible to close.

Breakfast was good, you have a big room and a big buffet with different breads, crepes, fruits, yoghurts etc. on it.

The location is perfect to discover Tours. Located right next to the central train station, it's only a few minutes walk to the tourist office and about 10-15 minutes to the cathedral. Unfortunately the hotel doesn't have any own car park. You have to park your car at the public parking area which costs about 8€ for hotel clients.
