Recent guest reviews
Staff was outstanding. Helping us find our way around. Spoke good English but helped me while speaking French. Even loaned us a power cord for our iPhone Breakfast was good, nice selection. Enjoyed our visit to Toulouse!
Poor breakfast , no egg cup, no toaster, Rooms are small, no 'arm' or support for the bath. All over in this hotel old carpet, lock for the rooms with key (system from the 1960 or 70) everythng is old besides the bed. No possibility havng a bottle of water at arrival and lack of service . Nice maids
The hotel is only 5 minutes walk from the main plazas, and a minute or 2 further from St Sernin and the other key sites. The bus to/from the airport stops 2 streets away...very easy! The staff are lovely, the breakfast is plentiful and although the room only had a fan (no AC) it was fine. Would stay again.
Permanence in this hotel could be convenient to stay in Toulouse at low price. The position is very good, just 100 meters from Jaun Joures, close to downtown and easy to reach from the airport. The room is small, clean enough, unfortunately with the moquette (with common here). The personnel is kind. The wifi si of good quality. The breakfast is below average. Finally, it depends from the price, in the range of 2-3 starts it could be ok.
If you use customer ratings as your guide to a hotel, you know the system isn’t infallible.Sometimes 2-star is really 2-star. I booked Cousture based on its 8/10. I have no idea how that score came about. Hard to say much good about this hotel, except the staff are nice. The tattered welcome mat warns you. Suitcases travel up to reception on a raised concrete path that a home DIY guy might have made. The rooms are small, the only decoration is the TV. There is no safe for valuables in the room or at the reception. The receptionist assures me that there has never been a theft at the hotel. We take him at his word and put our passports under the mattress. Who will look there? No air conditioning, it must be hell in summer. We open the windows but there are bars and nightclubs in the back lane and the party goes on till 2am. From the loud conversations, I learn new French swear words and hear old English ones mispronounced. Taking a shower is possible only if you are a fully trained circus acrobat. Not that easy getting to the hotel from the Gare. Roadworks everywhere, footpaths ripped up and threatening homeless guys with dogs are in the streets. Toulouse is lovely but I would stay in another area.
Lovely little hotel, situated very central. 2 minute walk to Jean Jaurès Metro. 5 minutes walk to airport shuttle (€8) on Allées. Tram (€1.60) from airport to Palais de Justice tram/metro stop. Then a 40 minute walk to hotel. Lovely, helpful staff. Breakfast ( plentiful) €10. No hot drinks facilities en suite. However, room was very clean. Logistically ideal. Recommended
Lukewarm-to-disinterested reception, small room, noisy area, and parking that was a long, long walk from the property. In fact, the parking was in a public lot, where there's obviously no guarantee of availability. The hotel wasn't all that close to the old city's attractions, so there wasn't any element of convenience to this choice. Trying to positive on at least one point - it was only for 1 night and it didn't cost much!
Very well located close to bars and restaurants but very noisy. Actually it is like you sleep with neighborhood... My room was very small but brand new and very clean. Breakfast was very good! Staff was also nice.
We arrived around 8.00pm on a warm (30C) evening. Check in was fine, with the staff courteous, We were given a room on the third floor. Upon entering the room the temperature was above 40C. We tried to turn on the air conditioner. It didn't work. This was reported to the management who said something would be done immediately. Within 30 minutes we were informed that the problem had been addressed and the fault rectified. A trickle of cool air now came out of the system. We again complained to the management and demanded another room only to be told the hotel was full. By next morning the room had been cooled to a reasonable temperature but internet still didn't work. Another trip downstairs to complain. The morning desk clerk finally made a phone call to a third person who within an hour had arrived on site. He was either the owner or someone in authority who could make decisions. He apologised for the air conditioning problem and admitted that it was a maintenance issue. He also admitted that many advertising photos were of the hotel foyer,not of rooms. We were eventually offered another larger room but with no air conditioning. The internet worked and it was one room that had been restored. To keep cool the windows needed to be fully open all the time to make the most of any cool breeze. We swapped rooms for our remaining 2 nights. Luckily we had good ear plugs as the noise from the street below was excessive until well after midnight. One place to avoid!
The motel was very clean, the room was well presented with a comfortable bed. The location was very central and close to the public transport i.e. Airport transport. Also the staff was helpful and friendly. (Natasha)
