CLOSE TO EVERYTHING IN THE AREA...ENJOYABLE!
I would come again...WALKING DISTANCE TO THE TRAIN...
The staff very helpful and accommodating for your benefit.
If you want a pleasant staff and a clean room you will enjoy.
The hotel was clean, conveniently located near the river and just 3 kilometers form the city center of Tours. Nearby in either direction out of the hotel are wineries where you can do some wine tastings. Also, right out from the front of the hotel across the street is a park and the river which has a path where you can bike, walk or run. The staff where very friendly and helpful and assisted us with directions, information and making reservations at restaurants. We stayed in a superior room which had plenty of space and a reasonable sized bathroom. I would highly recommend this hotel and will stay their again the next time I am in Tours.
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.
Le Grand Hotel Tours is a once-grand hotel that is showing its age. It has charm, a terrific location, and a competent, resourceful staff. We used the hotel as a base for visiting the many chateaus and other historic locations in the Loire Valley and it worked for us in that role. They were offering a discounted breakfast option ($10 vs. $13 normally) which was a very good value. Easy walking to Tours restaurant district, where places stayed open late, was convenient after returning from a day of sight-seeing.
One downside: the wi-fi is terrible. It is inconvenient, since you have to get a separate log-in for each device you wish to connect every 24 hours. Once connected, your connection can be dropped at any moment. I had more trouble with my Apple devices (iPhone and iPad) than my husband did with his Samsung Galaxy phone and laptop. The hotel staff are aware of this and said that they have asked the owners to improve the service.
The hotel was very comfortable with good size rooms, very clean and staff welcoming and helpful. They allowed us to leave our car parked in the underground car park after checking out in the morning while we explored Tours. The hotel is in an ideal location with the historic area of Tours within an easy walk and for shoppers the retail area just minutes away. A very nice breakfast with a wide variety of food is available. Unfortunately this was just a short stop on our way to Brittany as we could easily have stayed several days.

On the road to Loire castles and vineyards, the Quality Hotel Harmonie is located in the centre of Tours. Entirely …More
We (two adults and two teens) stayed for two nights at this apartment hotel in a two BR kitchenette unit with two bathrooms. Good facilities (IKEA type furniture) and clean. Good bedding and adequate linen. Toiletries were available only in one bathroom. No spare toilet paper, and no detergent in the kitchen sink. These are minor inconveniences but for short-term stayers should be included. Parking was fine and reasonable, but poorly designed parking access where the driver has to get off the car and walk to the passenger side to insert the parking ticket! Two breakfast options (take away to room cheaper and buffet)- both fine. No English TV channels (not even BBC). Overall a pleasing stay and we will stay again.
Standing on the banks for the River Loire, Tours is the capital city of Indre-et-Loire, lauded for the perfection of its inhabitants' spoken French. The city is also known as the home to Cathedral St. Gatien, an enchanting sight when lit up in the night sky. Visitors can cycle along the untamed river and experience the varied landscape at the heart of the Loire Valley.
