This is a budget hotel. You must know this when you're booking it. So I'm not going to rate it from the vantage point of a 5-Star hotel. I'm going to consider it from the correct starting point. For me, it was an excellent budget hotel. I had low expectations coming in - so I was pleasantly surprised. The airport bus brings you right to the hotel. WIFI was great. The location is good for walking around & seeing the sites. Many reviews mentioned small rooms. Both of ours (214 & 215) were quite large & very comfortable. And they were exceptionally clean. We had a good night's sleep. The hotel has quite a quirky layout, very non-standard which we enjoyed. Breakfast was a nice extra - and for us, sufficient. The towels were quite thin. I would suggest bringing your own toiletries and the lift is a joke (really tiny & a little scary - & there's only one so there can be a long wait) - but hey - it's a period property. The hotel adds lots of nice extra touches though that I found quite sweet. There's a riddle on your pillow when you arrive which if you solve, you get a "petit cadeau" (little gift) from reception. Water & some sweets are also provided complimentary & refreshed. And the staff were lovely. I wish I could remember the name of the gentlemen who greeted us on reception & answered our questions during our stay. His English was exceptional & nothing was too much. What a star! I had a great time & I would stay here again without hesitation. For the price honestly you can't expect a 5-Star level experience, but it is one of the best budget hotels I have ever stayed at.
The hotel is a basic ibis, no frills. I had a single room but even then room was tiny with barely room to move about. Furnishing and toiletries were basic. Breakfast was basic continental breakfast, ok but putting espresso machine in middle of food area created traffic jam in small area. Reception staff was friendly.
We chose this for an overnight stay convenient to the railway station. The bus from the airport stops immediately opposite. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The room was quite basic and dark. It would not really be suitable for a long stay. Breakfast was good and included in the room price. If we were going again, we might choose the 'Ibis' immediately next door.
The Ibis Styles Toulouse Centre Gare is very well located - across the canal from the gare. It is only 20~30 minute walk to most of the sites to visit in Toulouse. The hotel is relatively recently renovated but it is fresh decor in an old building. Staff are very friendly and welcoming and the included buffet style breakfast is sufficient if not exciting. Car parking is relatively easily available on the surrounding streets (payant) or in a parking station at the gare (expensive). If you park on the opposite side of the canal south of the Gare, the parking is free. (3 minute walk)
It was really a great experience at this hotel. The room was spacious. We travelled with a pushchair. Unfortunately the lift was small and it was very difficult for us to place it inside. I would suggest that the hotel closes off the courtyard, even with something transparent as for those living in the first floor have to go out in the cold or possibly even in the rain. I don't want that these two point impact the overall rating of our stay. It was really great experience as both us the children enjoyed the stay in the hotel. Even the breakfast it was value for money.
Rhe visit was for Christmas shopping in the renowned Toulouse Christmas Market. We travelled by train. The hotel is opposite the Railway station - a 15 minute walk from La Capitole, where the market was - so hardly 'centre ville'., but with easy , mostly step-free access using the Métro But our first use of Ibis Styles was a happy one, a refreshing change from the standard Ibis.
Located just opposite the train station, which was very convenient for us to catch the train to Montpellier. It was also a mere 30 minutes bus ride from the airport. The hotel was close to eateries and convenient stores but we walked to the Capitole, which was only 10 to 15 minutes walk away, for most of our meals. The hotel included a complimentary breakfast (eggs, sausages, cereal, coffee, etc) which was good enough to start the day. Rooms were clean and modern and was reasonable priced. Good stay !
If you are a smoker and have the choice between and smoking room and non-smoking,go for the non-smoking. It is not worth it, the bed smelled like an ashtray, the pillows were not changed. The room was not very clean,but overall acceptable considering price/quality ratio. The location of the hotel is pretty good,you are in walking distance of the center of the town and train station and it is pretty calm and quiet. The staff was very nice and friendly
Overnight before taking the train. Very helpful receptionist - gave us the quiet room we requested and quickly replaced a tv remote control that was missing. Really comfortable, large bed. Good breakfast for this level of hotel especially freshly squeezed orange and again very helpful staff. Breakfast area rather cramped. Coffee, tea and croissants available all day it seems. Would definitely stay again.
We stayed 2 nights in Toulouse and it was a great hotel. The location was perfect and very close to the heart of Toulouse. The staff was very friendly. They gave us a small gadget, a mifi. The mifi was very useful to stay connected all around the town. A good quality/price ratio.
