Ibis Toulouse Gare Matabiau
Ranked #32 of 130 Hotels in Toulouse
Reviewed 10 August 2013

This Hotel was so convenient to the Station, we just walked across the road to it. Was clean but quite small, but price was good and served our purpose. Walking distance to Town Centre.

Room Tip: Maybe not a room facing the Train Station as it is a meeting place for itinerants and their animals...

Like others we lurched off the train and negotiated our way across the road to this marvelous looking hotel for our one night stopover en route to elsewhere.. Like others we were regretful that there was no coffee machine, or teabags impatiently waiting to meet their destiny, or in fact any other frills to speak of. Not even a humble tissue. We had what could have been a glorious room - huge, windows everywhere, well proportioned - but let down by decor that can only be described as grimly modernistic. You know the sort. But with a bit of imagination and a new style consultant, what a wonderful hotel this could be! Away with the floating wood veneer floors that transmit every footstep! Away with the nasty cheap-looking bookcases that serve as cupboards! And a bit of gloss paint rather than matt! And those awful tired towels!
We did have a truly awful cup of coffee downstairs while we were waiting for the room to be cleaned. And we did wonder when we heard one staff member say at the end of his shift to the receptionist "Bon Courage!" But, then, as others have pointed out, this is not a flash part of town, and there are a number of unsavoury characters in the area doing I know not what in dark lanes and doorways. Best not to stray too far from the safety of Ibis in the evening, ladies. (with apologies to AndyofLondon for stealing some of his best lines!)

Room Tip: We had a lovely room on the first floor.

Handy if you are travelling to Toulouse and arriving by train.
Directly opposite the main Matabiau station.
Efficient reception, room a bit small but certainly adequate; breakfast fine for the price (9e)
Towels a bit thin.
Free wifi a bonus.

If you want a cheap convenient stay close to the station, this is ideal. It is literally across the road and has everything you would expect from a budget hotel. The room was clean and serviceable. The bar and dining area were fine but probably towards the lower end of the Ibis spectrum, in that they were just basic. I think, however, the price reflected this. Service was polite and accommodating.

Great room, large and airy, hotel in a central location, receptionist very friendly and helpful, good choice of food for breakfast. Only downside was that there were a lot of 'down & outs' around the hotel so not ideal for single travellers or young families.

I stayed here for 2 nights in June and I had a room on the 5th floor. As previous contributors mentioned, its key point is the proximity to the city centre. I did not use the public transport but it is a 10 to 15 minute very casual walk to get to the centre. That said there is a lot happening around the area as well but it remains a hotel at the train station and all the varieties of life that that brings with it. Lot of colourful people hanging around outside and there is always life albeit not exactly what you are there for. There is an element of roughness and without being overly cautious I would say that it is always best to keep your wits about you. Staff at reception spoke reasonably good English. Wi-Fi worked fine for me. Taxi from hotel to the airport at 06h15 cost me €30 (15 minutes) but there is little traffic at that time. I would add another €5 to this if you get a taxi at peak times or during the day and another 15 to 20 minutes. I have been told that there is a bus that leaves the airport and drops at the train station every 15 minutes during the day but I cannot confirm this. Air con in room 508 was a tad loud and there is a supporting beam that covers half the bed. More of a nuisance than an inconvenience but it does take up space in the room.

Room Tip: Do not take room 508

A great location across the street from the Gare and close to the metro station. About a 15 minute walk to the city centre. Staff are friendly, bilingual and helpful. Has WIFI and a free internet access area.
