The Hotel was ok. The weather was quite warm and with the window open was noisy with people coming and going during the night. A good base to explore the Loire Valley and easily accessible by car.
The old part of Tours is a good place to go and eat, lots of choice and a good atmosphere, and is easily accessible by tram that runs close to the hotel.
I wouldn't personally recommend eating at the hotel. The meal we had was not that great.
I would recommend the hotel, but it's borderline because of the noise.

We wanted a convenient hotel travelling from Spain and this hotel fitted well. Staff were very pleasant on arrival and the room was excellent in terms of size and facilities. Nice to see a separate WC separate from the bathroom. Only adverse comment was that the Steak I had at the evening meal was on the tough side but otherwise a good meal choice for evening and breakfast.
Never stayed in one of these before. It is a simple hotel a bit like a UK Travelodge. Only stayed 1 night, but it was perfect what we needed, somewhere to sleep in Tours.
Situated about 5km outside Tours it was clean and in a quiet area (lots of other hotels around).
Overall a good experience and if you are on a budget, worth checking these out.
Check in is electronic and staff availability limited, but works well.
Lying adjacent to the city of Tours, Joue-les-Tours is the largest suburb in the area. At just 5 km away, the Gemmail museum is worth a look. Set in a 12th century underground chapel in the Raimbault Mansion, the exhibition displays a selection of fine work produced using the unusual Gemmail technique. Keen anglers can fish in the nearby Bretonnieres Lake.
