Reviewed 28 February 2014

I have stayed here several times when I have arrived late at night and needed to leave early the next morning. Whatever time of night I've arrived, the person on reception has been available and cheerful and the next morning when I've had to lug my 30 kilo sample box into the car, they've always helped me despite my not wanting them to give themselves a hernia! The rooms are perfectly nice and not noisy despite the hotel's location.

We needed to book a hotel close to Toulouse Railway Station, to return hire car and to board train to Paris in the morning, staff were very friendly and helpful, not the greatest area, but no complaints at all with the Hotel.

On the website of the hotel by booking.com was said that there was an available shuttle bus. Yes therenwas a shuttle bus. The regular bus to the station, each person 5€. The fact was that the bus stopped in front of our hotel with on the other side the trainstation. Nice place. Good room, no noise, nice view.

Room Tip: 4th floor has a good view on the train station when you have a room on the streetside

I'm very schocked at the positive reviews of this hotel. I booked online and was taken to a dark ,dirty back room that smelled like someone had been smoking in it for 20 years!

The part of the building i was in seemed to be something of a prefabricated building tacked on to the main part...given the other reviews perhaps the main building is significantly better. From my experience the only thing this place has going for it is that its close to the train station. Avoid!

The hotel gives you a bad impression as you enter the dark shabby reception but rest-assure that it is quite a different story for the rooms. They are clean, comfortable and although no luxury is offered, but the standard is much more than expected from a 2 star hotel. The staff is very helpful as well and the location is ideal opposite the train station and about 10min walk from the centre/shopping area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room opposite the canal.

We stayed at the Hotel Icare and had a good experience. I recommend this property for folks that are traveling by train. It is directly across a boulevard from the train station. No (expensive Toulouse)taxi needed. It's a 10-15 minute walk into the center of Toulouse. The best feature of the room was its soundproofing. I was impressed that on such a busy street we heard no street noise. None. The bed was comfortable. The room a little small for the furniture it contained. Great water pressure in the shower. Having an elevator was appreciated. The room was clean. Short on amenities, but not a bad price.

Our stay started off with a warm welcome from the receptionist. And she continued to greet us cordially throughout our two-day stay. I enjoyed her greeting. Got us off to a good start.

Not a luxury hotel, but it doesn't have a luxury hotel price, either.

Room Tip: We were facing the street and had zero street noise.

We stayed here with our teenage daughter for 2 nights and it was a really unsafe area. Room was tiny, staff were helpful, breakfast for 7 Euro was average. Not a good location for convience stores, not safe day or night, much better areas in Toulouse. Do more research.
