Beautiful and nicely located boutique hotel with plenty of options for dining, sporting (running along river Garonne) or strolling through the bars in the center of Toulouse. Funny decoration in the breakfast cellar - where breakfast is served) - Darth Vader statue- tiny rooms with only a bath tub which is making it a bit difficult to shower. Friendly staff, nespresso machine in the room. Liked it!
Lovely location on the river, this hotel has been redesigned with an arty feel. Each room has been decorated by a different local artist, from graffiti to photography. The rooms are incredibly small but well appointed. The staff are very helpful and the hotel has a lovely feel. The one downside was that we were unable to get wifi in our room.
Stayed here two nights on way in/one night on way out of France around a holiday in the Dordogne. Lovely 'boutique' hotel - all artworks on display are for sale. Good, clean and comfortable rooms with nice bathrooms; many overlook the Garonne river. Aircon worked well (was 30 degrees outside) and room was very quiet - double glazing good. Staff were friendly and helpful. A great location, five minutes' walk from the old town. Well placed for 'doing' Toulouse easily.
river view with good air con on a sweltering bright day. check in was very smooth and the room clean and bright. wifi fast only downside is parking. Toulouse is rammed with cars and there is no on street parking so you have little choice but to use the nearby underground car park for 26 euros for 24 hrs.... more expensive than the breakfast
Quite a fun hotel by the river convenient to the metro and old town. We stayed in the Monsieur Patrick suite which was quite small but met our needs. We even had a pet goldfish. Only negative to the room is the raised steps to the bed which was a bit dangerous at night. I'd stay here again but be warned that luggage must be hauled up a staircase to get to the room. We also found the hotel noisy while trying to have an afternoon nap due to loud conversations in the hall - I think connected to the room next door which was being renovated - so not likely a permanent problem.
- Extremely small rooms. Very little space to store your belongings. NO INTERNET IN THE ROOMS! Only in the lobby. Most staff doesn't speak English, which makes it quite hard to communicate with them. Only one tiny bottle of 2 in 1 shampoo/shower gel, for two people for two nights! After the first night they didn't put new shampoo/shower gel. We had to ask for 2 more (1 per room) in the reception and it took them about 1 hour to find it. When the guy came back, he had only brought one little bottle! So we had to ask for another and he wasn't very happy about it. Were we supposed to share one tiny bottle of shampoo/shower gel for 4 people?! Needs a bit of refurbishments. Hotel is very small in general, looks way bigger in the pictures! Our rooms were turned to the river, but there was a big tree in front of the windows so you couldn't see anything :( + Great location. Modern decoration. Very calm, you don't hear any street noise at night, even though there is a bar across the street. Staff was really nice in general.
This hotel seems to have it all: a superb location, next to the famous 'Pont Neuf' in one of the most beautiful areas of downtown Toulouse, the rooms are cosy and all look out over the banks of the huge Garonne river, the arty decoration of the hotel has some character, the employees are charming professionals trying to help in any possible way, the breakfast is good and the price of my room was reasonable. So I was looking forward to my three days in Toulouse -- until I went to bed. My mattress was awful; it seemed like sleeping on a thin saggy sponge directly the floor. Next day I had backache and told it the receptionist, who "will pass the information on", assuring me that "we are replacing them little by little". I would have allocated five stars to this hotel, if they had not given me a room, where the mattress wasn't yet replaced. That is a serious professional mistake, mattresses are very important in a hotel, therefor I downgrade to three stars. My advice: ask specifically for a good mattress, when you book, so you get a room where it “has already been changed” and will fully enjoy the place and the beautiful town.
This establishment is a small hotel taking its name from the adjacent School of Fine Arts in close proximity to most of the attractions of this interesting city. We stayed for three nights and all our contacts with the helpful staff were most pleasant. We arrived by car after dark and there was no problem stopping for a few minutes to unload before parking a few blocks away. The décor of the public areas is quirky and up to date. The breakfast room is in the basement and although small it was never crowded and had a good selection of items. The small elevator was big enough for two people and medium size luggage. The room was very small but with a beautiful view of the Garonne and Pont Neuf. Double paned windows isolated any external noise. There was an unpleasant sewer odor emanating from the bathroom pipes and I had to block the sink with wet toilet paper to prevent it from wafting into the bedroom. I wished I had checked this earlier in our stay to ask for another room. Overall I would recommend this hotel.
The hotel is well located, close to the main attractions of the town, and the view is wonderful (over the river). Very helpful staff, cozy and original room, good breakfast. Original design. I strongly recommend this hotel.
We stayed in the hotel for one night during a short winter tour in Southern France. Overall a relatively good experience, the room was clean and main advantage is the fact that is close to the main touristic attractions (restaurants, Place du Capitol, Place St Georges, Musee des Augustins), so very convenient from this point of view. However, difficult to find a parking spot in the area, we paid 26 EUR per night in an underground parking nearby. The problem was rather the comfort of the room: while we took indeed the basic room, it was smaller than what one would expect from a 4-star hotel (my guess: max 10-12m2), the heating system quite noisy and too close to the bed, and there was also some noise in the morning (not sure if it came from the river or from the street). Therefore, I was not convinced by the price-quality ratio. Maybe with a larger room, on a higher floor during the summer, the experience would have been better, as the windows are oriented towards the river and the view seems nice.
