I went on that tour in May. The hotels were:
London: Imperial Hotel, Russell Square
Yes, this one is close to lots of attractions. The British Museum, Covent Garden, West End Theatre District, and other stuff are in walking distance.
Paris: Campanile Paris Patin
It’s out in this ghetto area on the outskirts of Paris and is not really close to anything. The metro subway stop is really close by so you can get around easily.
Amsterdam: Nieuw Slotania Hotel. We were supposed to stay at “The Blue Tower” but the construction was behind schedule and it was done ready yet.
Again this was on the outskirts and you had to take the tram to get anywhere. Fortunately the tram stop is right around the corner.
For all of them, I thought the quality was “decent” and I didn’t really have complaints given the price.
Of course, there’s no guarantee that your tour will go to those hotels.
Also none of them had hair dryers included so bring your own multi-voltage travel hairdryer.
I went on a superior hotel tour. The hotels where fine but they weren’t that close to attractions. You get the bus in to town in the morn. You’re given a map and details about how to get back to the hotel via public transport in case you miss the bus home. The hotels aren’t right in the middle of everything otherwise the price of the tour would be more.
