We read a lot of reviews before booking and so knew what to expect, the rooms are small, yes, but the hotel is charming. The rooms on the third floor are smaller than those on the second so they might not appeal to everyone. The hotel is very well situated within easy walking distance of the historic areas, a multitude...

I booked three rooms at this charming hotel, cautioning my friend (for whom I also booked) that her room/shower room was likely to be tiny. Fair go; they were tiny. The rooms, however, were nicely decorated and clean. I had room 8, with my partner, my mate had room 9, and my children had room 10, all of which were...

The hotel is located in the city centre, close to the train station too. Easy to find. The lady is very friendly, my bad that I don't speak much French, boyfriend sorted out the room. Room was small but had everything you need. Seperate shower room. Clean and neat.

I stayed in room 9 of this hotel and it was the most uncomfortable, awkward, tight room I have had the displeasure of staying in. The bathroom stall is tiny and impossible to turn around in to take a decent shower. I am only 5'2" and I had a horrible time trying to shower. The climb up to my room...

For the price, especially if you're sharing the room, this hotel is a good value. It is close to the train station and has a parking lot just up the street (though you have to pay until maybe 7 pm when it becomes free overnight). It's small and quiet. It's far away from the picturesque part of town, though close...

This hotel is within five minutes walk away from the Train Station. And it's also tucked neatly in the City Centre & yet, away from hustle bustle to enable u to have a good sleep in the evening. The sound insulation in between rooms is naught but there's nothing that the hotel owner can do since that it's an old...

Small, "French" and good stopover location. Old style building close to historic sights in Tour. Comfortable and friendly. Good breakfast. Very inexpensive public parking (free overnight) within a few yards of the hotel.
