In a city which has many hotels, this hotel is #10 on Trip Advisor. This was primarily, the reason I booked this hotel for a weekend stay last weekend (mid November).
The location is good.Very central.
I stayed in a 'confort' class room. It's the midrange room between a Classic and Premium.
The double room was small, with fairly basic fixtures and fittings. The bathroom was very small with only a shower no bath. Maybe some people will see this as characterful or typically French. I was disapppointed.
My biggest problem however with the whole stay was the fact that they turn off the A/C in all rooms for the winter months. It's was pleseantly mild during our stay and the room was very warm. Too warm. Uncomfortably warm.
The only way to cool the room was by leaving open the balcony doors. Not only did this have security risks when we were not in the room, it also caused sleepless nights as the street noise vaulted up through the narrow streets.
I did mention it to reception, who to be honest, were not particularly helpful. We were offered a different room, with just windows, but it too had no A/C working and was similar in (small)size.
All in all this hotel was OK at best. Would I return ? No - unless they revised their stance on turning of the hotel A/C in the winter months. There are plenty more hotels in Toulouse which would be better value.
Call me cynical, but it really would make me wonder how this hotel has reached #10 in Trip Advisor ??!!
