The hotel facilities are a bit old, and the breakfast was small for the asked (7€). The location is good, although is not a really safe area (I was offered drugs like 3 times in the street right next to the hotel's entrance). In the end, good price and location but old hotel in a not really safe area.
If you have a train,a coach or a plane to take it is a good place to spend a night.You just have to cross the road to get to the bus and train stations. Besides,there is a shuttle that takes you to the Airport in about 20 minutes for 8€,which is very convenient when you have a flight early in the morning.As for the rooms prices they are very reasonable:I paid 63€ for a room for 3 people! And the room was quite clean! This is a lace where I will come back.
Not the classiest hotel in Toulouse but for the price it's good value, the rooms - we had four- all were clean and the beds comfy, bathrooms clean if a little bit cramped but if you want massive bathrooms and classier facilities you'd be paying three or four times as much, the hotel staff are very welcoming and really friendly We all found the neighbourhood friendly and safe, but we're all used to big multi cultural cities, it's being tarted up round here, and might go a bit gentrified in the coming years but its still a bit edgy so might not suit everyone but we found it no problem at all and you feel you're in a real neighbourhood, if you're after a corporate holiday experience go find a Novotel or similar, if you're after a slice of French life then this will provide that much better Great bar next door run by a lovely welcoming Turkish family and fantastic bakery for croissants and sandwiches next to that, they bake everything themselves as we saw the flour delivery arrive Aldi just down the road and centre of town at the bottom of the road so perfectly placed for everything your need we've stayed here twice now on trips to Toulouse and will return next time we're here as well
I didn't check the check in time, arrived like at 7 am after a really long night, traveling, no sleep and someone tried to rob me...the man on the reception was really kind and let me do an early check in, I really needed it.....besides that, the hotel is really nice, clean and quiet!, the breakfast looks really good and its very near the train and bus station. I'm really happy right now! Thanks!!!
Excellent location close to the bus & train station. It was easy to walk even though I had 2 suitcases! 10-15 minute walk to the city centre. Fantastic reception staff who were very helpful and had very good English. Only minor downside is that there is no lift / elevator. Reception is up one flight of stairs and the rooms are further flights -but for the price, the rooms were clean and it was perfect for my 2 night transit in Toulouse. the street has many similar 2* / budget hotels and the street was dug up for re-paving when I was there. The street doesn't look the prettiest but I felt safe walking around and from the end of the street you're practically in the city centre area anyway. Beautiful city centre and lovely atmosphere - everyone seemed so relaxed.
This place was great!! The rooms were simple but clean, and the price-quality ratio was outstanding!! The hotel is just around the corner from the center, including nice bars and shops. The personnel was also very nice and helpful!!! All in all, it was a very nice place to stay during our recent trip to Toulouse!
Needed a quick overnight to catch a morning train Northward. Liked the location. Is definitely in a gritty part of town, so I wouldn't recommend for a female traveler going solo. It's simple and def. not the cleanest place i've stayed, but I thought the employees were wonderful. That said, travelers need to be aware there was a bed bug under the bed when we packed up in the morning. Might be a one-off, but please use care.
We stayed here for two nights during the Euro 2016 Football Chamionships. The hotel is very close to the main Matabiau Railway Station and within 10 minutes walking distance of the city centre and numerous restaurant and bars. The rooms were clean and comfortable with en suite bath/shower facilities and very efficient air conditioning. The wifi was pretty good and free. Breakfast was excellent value with cereals, fruit juices, fresh fruit, bread, croissants, pastries and tea or coffee available. Reception staff were friendly and efficient throughout our stay. In summary this hotel offers good value for short stays in a convenient location
I stayed 1 night (6/1) here, if I am not taking very heavy luggages,it is a very nice hotel ,because it has no lift, for me 60 plus years old which is not good experiences,but it is very lucky that the reception staff who helps me to take one luggage to level 3 floor. Hotel room is fine with free wi fi,tv,A/c/heating system,new bathroom facilities. Everything is clean and fine with 2 minutes walk to Toulouse Train Station.
Location Just a ½ block down a street from the Toulouse Matabiau (TGV) train station. You just need to cross the canal and go down rue Bayard and it is on your left. I saw a bunch of other reviews stating that there were guys just hanging out in front of the hotel. I did see this as they were always hanging around at the café or brasserie right next to the hotel, smoking, talking on the phone, or drinking (café or alcohol) and just hanging out. I did feel a bit uncomfortable but they left me alone. I can see how for a single woman this might be a problem. Compared to other parts of Toulouse you might see this as a ‘bad’ neighborhood but it changes pretty quickly as you go towards the center of town. There is a Carrefour City that is open until 10 pm (but I usually arrive 30 minutes before as French stores tend to close early). You can get basic groceries and drinks at Carrefour City. As of May 2016, there is a bunch of construction going on in front of the hotel and on that street all the way down. City itself is pretty small and walkable. There is also a rental bike system that came in handy to get out further and to cut down on walking. Lobby This is odd but the lobby is located on the 2nd floor (French first floor). So you enter the front doors and you have to walk up steps to get to the lobby. Lobby really does not have anywhere to sit or meet someone. There is a room for breakfast and it seems to double as the luggage holding area (I did not have them hold luggage as I arrived at night and left at checkout because my train left at 12:20 pm). There is no elevator. The hotel is 3 stories (I think, my room was on the 2nd floor, or US 3rd floor). I did have to carry my luggage up two flights of stairs (and down after checkout) but it was fine. Staff Staff seemed to be nice. They did seem to speak English but I only conversed with them in French. Sometimes they would response in English. Daily maid service was done properly. Room I was in a room on the second floor. I room was actually pretty big as far as French standards. The bathroom however was standard size which meant it was small. Did not have enough room to wipe myself, so had to open door. Shower/Tub (yes there is a bathtub) was situation so that there was a place to get out but it was really narrow and I could not get in/out without scraping the wall. There is a soap dispenser and they did provide one packet of shampoo and one small bar of soap for my stay but housekeeping did not replenish this so I did not have any shampoo after the first night (the soap lasted the whole stay). I had my own shampoo so this was not a problem. I assume I could have asked for more. The layout of the room was weird. The door to the room opens and you have to go in, then close the room to access the room. The bed was unusual in that it was lower to the floor. I don’t think there was a boxspring. There is a desk but it was really small. About wide enough for a laptop. There is a little stool to sit on. There is also a place for hanging clothes and luggage by the window. It had three shelves that came in handy. The window was large and opened up to the street corner. You could open up the window fully and maybe even hang out things to dry on the rail. Because of the construction I did not hear much traffic noise (street was mostly blocked off to through traffic). During the day I did hear a lot of construction noise. The windows were double windowed (outer was an older style and inside was newer). Walls were pretty thin. I could hear neighbors coughing or TV from other rooms. It was full but everyone was pretty quiet. Room was pretty clean and furnishing was functional and working. The room was a bit warm when I got there. The AC was a bit hard to figure out but once working it cooled the room really well. Breakfast I did not take. Normally I just get something from a bakery nearby. Restaurants There are non but there are many in the area. Nothing really nice here. You should head to old town area such as Wilson, Capitole area to eat something nice. Otherwise you have many fast food like, Subway, Shwarma places (usually cheaper than your chains and have many fast food offerings but quality can be anywhere), Pizza Hut, Quick (in train station), as well as many café’s and brasserie in the area. Many of the fast food places are open late. There is a bakery two doors down to the right, as you come out of the hotel. Pool Of course not. Workout facilities Of course not. I usually run/walk and you are located only ½ block to the canal, which has a bike/pedestrian path that is nice to run on. You are also pretty close to rest of the city and withink walking/running distance. Wifi Wifi actually did not work well on my first night. Meaning I could not even check email, or at least it took 20 minutes to download one message. I ended up using my cell phone for data. I did not complain but then found that the wifi worked great from the 2nd night forward. So it must have been a glitch that it did not work well. TV The TV had only one English channel, BBC World News. They did have two Canal+ stations and you had the ability to change the audio. So many shows and movies on regular French TV channels and the movie channel allows you to watch English movies/shows in English. The TV was small and mounted on the wall. Me I stayed here for four nights. I also speak French (fairly advanced but not fluent in my opinion). I’m Japanese by birth. I’m your average American size (a bit overweight). I personally wanted to get a hotel within walking distance from the Toulouse Matabiau (TGV) station. I was going to a conference in Toulouse and while this was not close to the conference venue, I figured it was easier to be close to the TGV station Traveled alone.
