“Was certainly a decent place to stay...”
Reviewed 23 February 2009

It s a nice hotel, really central and well priced at 55 EUR for 1 night. Its been said before, but the room was small, although modern with a flat screen tv and minibar with soft drinks priced at 2 EUR each. The bathroom as mentioned earlier was very clean and modern.

The reception was also a bit slow checking me in, but very helpful and spoke good English. I didn't take breakfast so its hard to say if it was worth it. To be honest its a nice hotel, but not particularly glamourous or classy - not quite sure why it gets such a high rating in Toulouse.

Stayed February 2009, travelled solo

I dont think that you can do better for €69 per night, right in the centre of Toulouse on a quiet side street.

Yes the rooms are tiny and the bed is hard - but the bathroom was immaculate and the place was spotless. That was all we needed for a rugby weekend.

The taxi from the airport was €28 and took 20 mins.

The breakfast on the Mon morning was a typical french fare - thought €10 was expensive and would find a local cafe in future.

Lunch at the Victor Hugo Marche was an experience - full of character - and very busy so get there early. Its just at the top of the street from the Albert so cannot miss it!

Also loved J'Go - contemporary wine bar/bistro on the other side of Victor Hugo.

I guess the reason people like this hotel so much is that it's fairly cheap - but that's about all it has going for it. The rooms are small and ours had a depressing little view out the back side. The room was clean, but dark and sad. The location is okay, but there are many more hotels in the area as well. The pictures on the website look absolutely nothing like the room or the hotel. Did not have breakfast, so I can't comment on that.

We were told in numerous places (emails, website, signs in elevator, hotel handbook etc.) that the parking garage we parked at (Victor Hugo) would give us a discount if we got our ticket stamped at the hotel. Well, the day we check out we ask the desk to stamp the ticket for the two days we parked at the lot, and the desk person said something about "a machine" and would not stamp the ticket. We asked what he was talking about and he just said he wouldn't stamp it and then that was that as he turned his back and went back about his business. No explanation was ever given.

Frankly, this particular chap was kind of a jag as he was also the same person who agreed to hold our bags for an hour after we checked out so we could get some money and have a coffee before we left. We asked for our bags when we returned and he asked us for a claim ticket that he never gave us. When we said we didn't have a claim ticket he gave us a big sigh and was now going to give us a hard time about the bags. Sheesh - we left an hour before and he was the one who took the bags from us and didn't give us any claim ticket, so just give us the bags already.

Overall, the hotel is average, the location is okay, and yes, it is cheap. But, I know that I wouldn't stay there again as it was nothing special and I am sure that there are better hotels in this lovely town.

This is a really good city centre hotel. Next to the centre of Toulouse, lovely room, friendly reception. Bargain for 69 euros per room on a weekend. Only small complaints - slow lift, average breakfast (on the weekend).

Hotel Albert deserves its top ranking on Trip advisor 100%. We were very pleased with this hotel. Great room with everything you could want, spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, safe, sound proofed, air con, TV with BBC World, great bathroom, plenty of room, mini bar, friendly, helpful staff and very central location. On top of all that - value for money. Would not hesitate to recommend.

Great hotel slap bang in the middle of Toulouse. As a woman on my own was concerned about long walks down quiet side streets - no worries here its just yards off the main square with masses of cafe's and shops. Didnt do breakfast, went to Cafe Florida instead for cafe and croissant! Just one thing, if you need a taxi to the airport book it the night before, requested mine at 8am and it took til 8.40am to arrive, not a relaxing start to your journey home, that said the taxi driver got me to the airport in 20 mins although I paid for using the word "quickly" - 27Euros, friend of mine had paid 18Euros for the reverse trip just 5 days earlier!

This place has a great location and we found the staff helpful.

We didnt have breakfast - no point in hotels in french cities.

Room was clean and all the amenities you need , it was small , but in France you get used to that. The only downside is the noise - if you sleep with window open , forget it , make sure you get a room which does not face rue kennedy - from 4am you will be kept awake.

Overall - good value , just watch out on the noise front.
