The hotel is perfectly located and is very easy to find out: just 5 min. work from the railway station, which is valuable especially for travelling outside of Tours. The city center also is very close. The family room (for 3 adult persons) was very large, comfortable & clean. The personnel was friendly. The free wi-fi was fast. We also enjoyed the breakfest there.

I have asked for a room with a bathtub. But when I arrived, I was told that those rooms are full. In addition, at the HP, it said that the parking was free of charge, but I was told that it is 5 euros per day. I have chosen this hotel because there was a room with bathtub and that parking was free...

Very beautiful and comfortable hotel. The room is spacious and with a large bathroom and a separate toilet. The only thing is there is no air-con or fan, and if the nights are hot, it would be quite stuffy since we don't want to open the window. But overall speaking, the hotel is value for money. Overall, the service is adequate and profession, and one of the managers (perhaps owner) is very helpful and nice too. Should we come back to Tours, Hotel Criden will definitely be the hotel we choose to stay at again. 3 ladies from Hong Kong
