Grand Hôtel de l'Opéra

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Located just off the Pace du Capitole, the Hotel de l'Opera is perfectly situated for anything you might want to do in and around Toulouse. Our room (a deluxe double) was spacious, comfortable and we felt it was good value. All the staff we met were friendly and exceptionally helpful, particularly when an air traffic control strike meant we had to spend an extra night in France. Our only reservation is that the hotel breakfast is, in our view, expensive for what you get. After the first morning, we ate at one of the cafes on the main square instead.

Sometimes a hotel experience just "clicks," making the stay so pleasant you hate to leave. That happened to us at the Grand Hotel de l'Opera. The staff were the largest part. Anatole and his colleagues parked and retrieved our car--a huge favor to Americans who find miniscule French parking places daunting. Luggage was brought to our room up a flight of stairs. I left a white charger cord on the bed that got caught in sheets that were being changed. The housekeeper went out of her way to find and return it right away. The reception staff gave advice, sold us stamps, and provided extra coffee. Speaking of which: There are espresso machines and bottled water in the rooms, and when we were there, coffee and tea with croissants were provided in the lobby early in the morning and late afternoon (I don't know whether this is permanent or an accommodation because of ceiling repair in the lobby). The rooms and lobby are traditional and plush. The beds are comfortable, the amenities in the bathroom are generously replenished, and the climate control in our room worked well. The furniture is a wee bit worn, but we didn't care about that, or the fact that the lobby was partially closed to fix a ceiling leak. We were so grateful for the friendliness, comfort and convenience of the hotel (everything you want to see or eat is less than 15 minutes' walk away) that we felt entirely at home.

Worthwhile hotel that breathes historic atmosphere but has all the modern amenities. Great location in central Toulouse, although do note it takes a while to drive out of the city (taxi?) if you're going somewhere.

This hotel is in a highly convenient location and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The bar and breakfast area are pleasant and the breakfast is good quality. The rooms are rather tight and the décor a little tired and dated. But overall one cannot complain and the positives of this hotel very much override.

Picked this hotel off a website for the traveller reviews and the location. It is off the main square and within easy walking of most of the main attractions. The room was very quiet with a very comfy bed. The only downside was that it was very hot in the room despite turning everything off and the noise when the window was open from the air-conditioning units nearby meant you couldn't leave it open. Once shut it was silent so no problem with that aspect. The staff were extremely friendly and the receptionist who greeted us Danielle was simply marvellous. Her English was impeccable which as I am ashamed to say my French is appalling was a godsend. We picked her brains of where to go and what to see and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely go back to the hotel when I spot the next cheap flight deal to Toulouse.

I always stay in the Grand Hotel when I go toToulouse. The staff welcome is extremely warm, and everyone is more than pleasant. I've very occasionally been upgraded, but the standard double rooms are lovely too. My favourite thing about the hotel is that it is sepulcharally quiet. Padding on the walls and carpet in the corridors means that you are rarely disturbed, despite the central location. My only complaint is that it is starting to look a teesy bit shabby, the lift and some of the bathrooms could do with renovation - but without losing their charm. I've never tried the breakfast, as nineteen euros seems excessive when you can walk across the square and enjoy a more than satisfactory one for six euros - but I may be missing something.

Very convenient to for touring. Everything we wanted was within walking distance. Very helpful staff. Rooms are older in style, but nice-sized, It is at the Capitol Square, but not on the Square. None of the rooms have a view of the Square. Breakfast buffet was expensive for us, but many other restaurants are a short stroll away.

A fabulous hotel - staff are very welcoming, location is perfect, parking nearby. Super comfortable bed and very quiet! Christmas markets were right outside the door as was all of the shopping area. Lots of cafes, bars and restaurants nearby as well.

After lovely BA cancelled our flight to Venice we had to look for an alternative at very short (12 hours) notice. Only available flight was to Toulouse and how glad we are that we came! This hotel is absolutely amazing. From the welcome to the goodbye everything was perfect. Our room was just gorgeous and staff so friendly. Can wait to come back

A friend of ours stays here regularly and she had booked us a night in her favourite Toulouse hotel as an Xmas treat. We had a wonderful room with a balcony. Very plush, cosy and luxurious. The location is THE next best thing about this friendly hotel. So easy to walk everywhere or use the metro. There is nearly always something going on in Place Capitol. It was the buzzing Xmas market whilst we were there. I think this is going to be our hotel of choice in the Pink City from now on...
