Less than 5 minute walk from Jeanne d'arc Metro station and the airport bus also stops here. It takes about 20-40 minutes by bus from the airport dependant on traffic. In the immediate area is general city centre with bars, restaurants, cafes, bakeries, shops etc...even a large fruit market. It is a very good location if you need to be in the central city area.
The room is much like all IBIS hotel but this one seemed better- it was more cosy and less generic. For instance the bed was a lot more comfortable as they use special bedding compared to IBIS that I have stayed in when in Italy and UK. The TV is fixed to a open cabinet which sticks out into the room between the bed and main door - it is somewhat annoying when bringing bags into the room. This unit had some space for some clothes but not much- only 5 coat hangers but not an issue if your stay is short. TV offers satellite with at least two channels for people that can't speak French such as BBC and another entertainment channel. The room had a desk suitable for working with a stool- the whole room had only 2 plugs which is under the desk (took a while to find) as well as one in the bathroom. There was a large window which opens and this proved to be usual considering the AC was not working (staff said it was off today) and I felt rather hot but with the windows open it was ok to sleep at night but hot during the day -also some noise intrusion from the road is heard, not so much at night as its on a side street but in the morning as offices are nearby. The bathroom is standard like at all IBIS hotels with generic shampoo shower gel fixed dispenser and thin towels. However the shower worked well and it had good hot water.
The hotel offers a restuarant on the ground floor and a bar- it is all quite nicely decorated and not typical of IBIS that tend to lack any clear character. The lobby was nicely decorated and a nice touch was sweets & chocolates on the counters while you check-in. WIFI is available free of charge and is with everywhere in France you just need to register an email to use- but just any old email works so potentially you could use multiple devices.
Staff during check-in were really nice, they were able to check me in early as room became available which was around 11. The girls were also very helpful in assisting me with public transport directions to the Airbus visitor centre, even so much as printing out some maps. It was most helpful as directions from the tram stop are not that clear. Check-out was not as smooth, the male staff member asked me to pay despite making payment previously through external operator. However once he noticed, he was apologetic. Overall this is a reasonable hotel to stay at to be in central Toulouse which is a nice city and I would stay here again. If your are visiting "let visit Airbus" allow at least 1 hour to get there via metro and tram from hotel.
