My wife and I stayed at this wonderfully central, well appointed, comfortable hotel for 2 mid-week nights. It is stylish and makes an excellent base for exploring the old city. Our room on the first floor was clean and well appointed. The bathroom was smallish, had a shower, no bath and was again well appointed and equipped. The staff were...

This hotel is in a brilliant location literally a stone's throw away from La Capitol. The rooms are modern, clean, spacious and really quiet considering their very central location. The staff are also very polite and friendly. A slight downside is the divide between the bathroom and the bedroom is frosted glass which isn't that frosted at all. If you...

Nice hotel. I had requested a room at the back which was very quiet. Bathroom was quite basic but fine. Room a good size. But one thing left a bit of a sour note: the hotel website advises to use the nearby underground car park : 26 euros per day so a hefty 52 euros for a 2 night stay....

Six of us stayed here to celebrate a sister's birthday. What a treat! Gorgeous rooms, beautiful bar/lobby, delightful staff, amazing location, and everything was just perfect! The smell of the place was just divine and the little touches everywhere were both surprising and fun. Make sure you visit the loos in the basement: quelle surprise!!

Everything at the hotel was brilliant - except for the lack of room temperature regulation. The room temperature was like the month of august in the south of France. We were obliged to open the window to sleep, as much as we could, in a Saturday night. We did not sleep, the noise of people put and about died down...

This hotel is a great option in Toulouse. Ideally situated in the centre of Toulouse its close to all the amenities it's pretty much on the Place du Capitole which is a lovely square.

Ideally located in the centre of Toulouse (2 steps from the place du Capitole), this hotel has everything you may expect from a hotel in this category. Decoration and room are stunning, the staff is very friendly and extremely professional. We have read many reviews about the lack of insonorisation, but our room was perfectly silent. Beds are by the...

I can highly recommend this historic hotel. We stayed here for one night in December and had the room on the corner (I think it was on the 1st or 2nd floor), overlooking the beautiful Christmas market below. The service is excellent, the room is wonderfully comfortable, the complimentary bathroom products are 5*, and we don't have a single bad...

Everything you could want from a city hotel. Wonderful location, attentive and helpful staff, comfortable bed and stylish bathroom. Our room (320) was a great size and I cannot fault it at all. Would be very happy to return when next in Toulouse.

Le Grand Balcon is located just by Toulouse main square, Place Du Capitol. We were there during the lively Christmas Market with over 100 stalls, where you can sample the local specialities and drink some lovely "vin chaud" as well as buying various gifts. The hotel itself is iconic, famous in the '20s, now carefully restored. The Privilege Rooms are...
