This hotel is a 20 minute walk from Toulouse Matabiau station. It might be slightly less without a suitcase! It is a simple route - just follow Rue de Bayard until you reach Rue d'Alsace-Lorraine, then turn left down Rue d'Alsace-Lorraine and right on street Rue Rivals. When I checked in the Reception were friendly and asked if I needed anything. I went up to my room and the door was open and the room was not made. It was 1pm so maybe I had checked-in a bit early! The cleaning staff kindly sat me in another room and did my room next. They were very good about it and soon it was ready. The room was an unusual shape due to the shape of the building. It was an old building with wooden flooring and you could hear the creaking of floorboards from the halls and neighboring rooms. My bed was very comfortable. There was a luggage rack and a desk area with good lighting. The bathroom had a large shower which was powerful. There was not a view from my window as it faced another building and seemed a bit enclosed. There was free wifi (ask Reception for username and password). The hotel has a 24-hour front desk so if you return late in the evening the front door is unlocked. You might be asked to show your room key. Hotel check-out is 11am however the night porter mentioned you can check-out at 11:30am. A word of warning - make sure you are out of the room by 12 as otherwise you will be charged for an extra night! Also at check-out you will be charged the city tax which was just under 1 euro for one night. I like this hotel and would stay here again. It has character and was a good price at 55 euros a night through booking.com.
