Having travelled regularly to Toulouse over more than a decade, I deeply regret that I have not discovered this hotel before. This was like coming home! Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, and a remarkably quiet location in central Toulouse. A busy boulevard is just a few steps away, but I did not hear a sound in my room, even with the window open.The same goes for the charming courtyard where you can sit down and enjoy the calm and a drink. The room I stayed in was very large, elegantly and functionally furnished and with a very luxurious bathroom,offered at a bargain price.The hotel is very close to the Matabiau station and only a few minutes' walk (or two metro stops) from the city centre. In its nearest vicinity you will find good restaurants and cafés, better and more reasonably priced than the ones you will find downtown.

Room Tip: "Executive rooms" are a real bargain when price is compared to quality.

Budget class hotel but staff is friendly and stay was enjoyable. Nice historical building but the room could do with some (extensive) renovation. Overall very good balance price-quality. Very well located in the Jean Jaures area and breakfast was reasonable.

Excellent front desk welcome on arrival - 5 star in quality. Safe & secure, 8-minute walk from the main station - and easy to find.

However, I was offered a special deal on price - so that, for a safe, welcoming overnight stay in a clean, quiet, inner city hotel, close to the station - around the 50 euro mark, this was an ideal choice. However, for those staying for a longer period of time, or on a romantic weekend - this is probably not the best choice, especially if paying the full room price. My room, for example, seemed more 2-star than 3 - and was small and sparsely decorated for a 3-star hotel. However, arriving late in Toulouse by plane, and with an early train to catch the next morning - the stay, in my opinion, was a step-up and central Toulouse alternative on the budget hotels on offer around the airport.

Our four days stay at Hotel Riquet was just fabulous! Location is good that is very close to the subway and the train station, this was the reason that we chose this place. But, being very near to old city center it was in a calm area at the same time. What surprised us, was the amazing services offered at affordable prices. No issues regarding size or cleanliness of the room. Bathroom was good, clean and modern. Breakfast was good, especially the coffee. The staff and security were amazing. Highly Recommended!

Very high standard service and helpfulness. This hotel located in close proximity to the train station. It was a short notice booking and our needs were accommodated. Rooms large and roomy and very reasonably priced. Facilities in room included a kettle, extra blankets and a roomy bathroom. The staff were friendly and cheerful.

It is situated in a quiet area about 1 km from the city centre. A taxi to the centre is about € 6. The hotel is a bit old, but everything was functioning - except for a broken toilet seat. We choosed a suite and it was quiet also at night so possible to sleep with a window open. The personal was very friendly and helpfully.
