The management of the Criden is rude and bookings are unreliable. I was in Tours for an important conference, booked into the Criden. When I arrived around lunchtime a very rude and haughty girl at the desk told me I was 'too late' and she had cancelled my reservation to give the room to another person. The room had been...

In all regards this is a very good hotel -- except for the limited air conditioning during what was quite warm weather. Otherwise, everything was fine. The room was quite large; the bathroom was large also. Breakfast was a bit limited since this is a hotel with tour groups (who tend to clear out the breakfast buffet -- which was...

This is a real gem of a small hotel, great location close to the centre of Tours, very helpful staff, and despite it being next door to a filling station, very quiet and relaxing. The hotel does not have a restaurant as such, but there is a very acceptable breakfast deal for around 7 Euros. Best of all, the room...

Stayed at Criden based on the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. Were slightly worried as it didn't appear in any of our guide books. From the road the hotel looks pretty average but inside it has been very tastefully refurbished and has a good modern feel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi is free but you don't know unless you...

During my latest trip through France, due to the #1 position on Tripadvisor, I checked the hotel's website which proved rooms available, so I booked one for Saturday 10th May 2008, my credit card was charged with the room price + the whole transaction was immediately confirmed including a reservation code. When calling later that day to announce arrival time,...

This hotel is one of the best I have ever stayed in. It gets a 5 out of 5 in every category. First, location. It is a 2-3 minute walk down the street from the train station. Second, the reception. The woman at the desk was very friendly, welcoming and helpful. She greeted us with a smile when we walked...

Stayed here in January 2008 to see the chateaux of the Loire Valley. The hotel was fantastic - friendly staff, comfortable room and located close to the railway station and tourist office. The standard of the room was a pleasant surprise coming from Paris, it was about three times the size for half the price! Summary: Pros + Location -...

This hotel proved to be a wonderful finish to our holiday. The staff were very amenable and the rooms were spacious, bright and had a great shower. More hotels seem to be moving to the all in one soap dispenser for showers which is not as efficient without a face washer. Breakfast was a little more than the baguette and...

My wife and I just returned from a week-long trip to Loire Valley & Paris. We arrived Paris early on a Cathay Pacific flight from Hong Kong, then connected on the morning TGV straight to Tours (2 hours). On arrival at the station, we found an SNCF-associated tour operator that booked us onto a full-day chateaux excursion of the Loire...

My husband and I stayed in this great hotel in Tours for a one night stopover on our way down to the Dordogne this Summer. I selected it based on reviews on Tripadvisor and we certainly weren't disappointed. The hotel is very easy to locate off the Autoroute - the slip road South bound leads directly onto Boulevard Heurteloup and...

“Request a room overlooking the main road with a' balcony' if you want to smoke. Rooms at the back of the hotel are quieter; but the road noise is not bad once windows are closed.”
