“Worth it, when you want to walk to the train station”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2012

Traveling with friends (two couples and two singles) we arrived after a day of driving after 6:00 PM in Toulouse on a Monday night in October. We were tired and I was planning to leave around 8 the next am on the train. The others were flying out the next afternoon. It was rush hour; I wanted to find a hotel by the train station. We had two cars. The only easily accessible and open parking was at the train station which worked. We walked across the street and booked four rooms at this hotel Now they were over $100 each, which is more than I would usually pay as a single in Toulouse. However for me the convenience made for great value. Our rooms were not like those mentioned in other reviews. Each was a goodsize and unique and were large as were the baths; two of them had balconies. In otherwords they had some character. The beds and pillows were comfortable. There was a bar and restaurant on sight where some of us ended up dining-- again for the convenience. The food was good and worth the price. It was wonderful to arise after 7; walk to the train station and be on my train to in about an hour.

Room was very dark and had the window towards the courtyard. Nevertheless, the room was clean, had nice wooden floors and a comfortable bed. The bathroom was old and could need some renovation. Also the floor was not very clean. Didn't have breakfast or any other meals. Free Wifi is provided which works quite well. It's good for a short stay or a business trip but if you're on vacation and seeking for some comfort this is not the place to stay.

You lurch off off your train, glad to be in Toulouse, relieved to have finally arrived. But now you have to find your hotel for a one-night stop before moving on.

Luckily you had the sense to book ahead, so now all you have to do is find the hotel.

The IBIS is right there, as you exit the station. Right across the canal and a short trek across a not too daunting road system. It's what you'd expect and not much more from this cookie cutter hotel they've duplicated in countless other cities.

The room is well proportioned and reassuringly clean. But don't expect anything fancy like a coffee machine, or a few impatient tea bags waiting to fulfill their destiny. Nope. This is a "we put you up, what more do you want" sort of hotel. True they claim they'll fix any problem within 15 minutes or you get to stay free, but if you believe that you'll probably believe anything.

Don't accept a room on the 5th floor as it seems the walls are made of tissue paper. But the water's hot, the beds comfortable and tomorrow's another day.

Room Tip: Avoid the top floor.

As usual, this was a good Ibis hotel. It is conveniently located near the train station which is also where the airport shuttle dropped us off. We stayed one night.

The room was clean and a decent size. The bed was a bit bigger than we typically get and the bathroom was more of a typical bathroom (not the modular pod bathrooms). The staff at the front desk were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was also good, plentiful, and tasty.

Directly opposite the impressive Gare Matabiau, with trains serving most of France, only a stone throw from starting point of the shuttle bus taking you to the airport in little over half an hour and a short walk from a number of restaurants the attractive 1920s building hosting the Ibis Gare Matabiau is well located for travellers - though, be warned, a wrong turning will quickly take you to the seedier side of city life. The hotel itself is adequate; the rooms, clean with no frills and perhaps on the small size, are fine but for the price of around 95 euro for single occupancy no bargain (September 2012). The staff were charming and helpful, the strongest point of the place, which made it even more heart breaking to see them struggle with their resources. The bar is far from cosy or welcoming but we thought a nightcap was in order; there was a dribble of cognac in the bottle along with some flies! Dead ? Probably but flies none the less. The malt whisky the same! The next day the same bottles were back on the shelf behind the bar; oh dear, oh dear!

Room Tip: The front can be a little noisy in the morning

An old hotel reshaped (more or less) into a standard Ibis. Charming receptionist, convenient (but expensive) parking, good for transport (opposite train and bus stations). The room was very quiet and the air-conditioning was good- but a strange shape- long and thin (practically impossible to get to the bed on the window side), and with one of the smallest bathrooms I've ever seen, except in a caravan... The neighbourhood (specially Rue Bayard) is a bit seedy (typical of areas near stations, in fact), but not threatening and only a short walk from the centre.
