“Good location, GREAT STAFF!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2011

We stayed here one night before we left France out of Toulouse. The staff was the nicest staff I have ever had at a hotel. The guy who was there overnight made sure breakfast was set out extra early since he knew we were leaving for the airport before breakfast time. He also helped us look up information on the computer and print out our boarding passes. The breakfast looked good, I only had appetite that early for a croissant, wish we were leaving later so I could have stayed for a while and lingered over some of those pastries!
Bed was comfy, room very small, bathroom quite large and very clean.

We stayed for one night (Saturday) in August, The hotel seemed quiet which meant little or no noise from other guests. The rooms are small but there is everything we needed for the overnight stop including kettle, supply of tea.coffee and minibar in fridge. The en suite toilet was fine with a shower and not as small as I expected. TV had no English channels but this wasn't an issue for us. The hotel was only a couple of minutes walk from the Metro where the airport shuttle bus also stopped so no taxi transfers were needed. The breakfast room is also small and I guess would be hectic if busy but again for us it worked out well and there was a decent continental breakfast provided. We didn't need the packed lunch they gave you but took the welcome drink which was still available to us seven hours after arrival. Not sure I would want a long stay here but for a good value overnight stop within easy walking distance of the city centre and metro this was fine for us.

The worst hotel ever. It's only positive point is that is situated close to the centre of Toulouse. The fact that the subway is nearby, makes that a lot of drunk and drugged homeless people are around. Not a good neighborhood.

The hotel was easy to find and I received a very warm welcome from the desk staff. The room was fine and the most noticeable thing was how clean the hotel was all over. The TV and free WiFi worked perfectly and I was offered a welcome drink. I would definately stay here again if I was passing through Toulose. My only complaint (albeit a small one) was there was no warm or cooked breakfast when I stayed there.

The young women at the front desk were both efficient and personable, and they set the tone for my stay. A small glass of champagne added to the feeling of being among friends, but probably speaking some French made it a bit easier.

The room was reasonably large and the air-conditioning came in handy.

I can see that the WC closet would be uncomfortable, or even impossible, for many people, but I'm not even average size, so it was fine for me.

It was nice having a fridge and coffee/tea equioment and makings.

The mustard yellow color of the room, however, was a negative.

I was able to walk from the Gare SNCF and to the downtown shopping and historic districts easily.

Wonderful staff. Good WiFi. Nice breakfast. Can't ask for much more. Room size was adequate. Parking was pretty tight but I made it through with no scrapes or dents. I was driving a larger than normal vehicle though.
