“A small but perfect hotel”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

The Pere Leon is located in the centre of Toulouse, and everything of interest from a tourist perspective is within easy walking distance. If you want to use public transport, then the metro and bus stops are literrally just outside the hotel door.

The hotel rooms are on the small side, but do not feel cramped in the slightest, as the furniture has been carefully chosen to maximise the space. Everything felt new, clean and was fully functional. The bathroom was similarly spotless.

The breakfast room was more than adequate. It would have been nice to have had fresh juice from a jug rather than a machine, but other than that it was a reasonable selection for 8 Euros.

I slept perfectly for both nights that I was there, without any noise from the street or from neighbours.

The wifi was free and had good connectivity.

Room Tip: Ask for a room higher up, to get more of a view, and be further from street noise.

Cher Callumx,
Mon équipe et moi-même tenons à vous remercier pour vos commentaires à propos de l'Hôtel le Père Léon.
La localisation de l'établissement en hyper centre, ainsi que la parfaite insonorisation des chambres, sont en effet des atouts incontournables.
Vous avez visiblement bénéficier d'une chambre double (environ 15m²) située au 5è avec une charmante vue sur les toits du vieux Toulouse. Merci de partager vos photos.
Dans l'attente du plaisir de vous accueillir de nouveau,
Bien cordialement,
Anne LAZZARI

I love this hotel! Not sure I can say enough nice things about it. They have adjoining rooms for families, so if you have young kids that go to sleep early you don't have to sit in the dark -- you can actually enjoy your evening in a separate room! Amazing, fabulous and wonderful! A true, rare wonderful treat in Europe! Was clean, large, bright and new. Beds were comfortable, bathrooms clean and everything worked well. Staff was **soooo** friendly -- everybody tried to practice their English with me (even though I speak French!). The answered all our questions with a smile. Great location. Parked the car and walked everywhere. Fabulous. The only down fall is the car park -- unless you can get all your stuff in and out of your car without having to double park you may have problems with the bus drivers or police (like I did :( although I talked my way out of it!

We have just spend 2 nights in this hotel. The location is great, just a few steps from the Capitol square, in the middle of the commercial lanes with plenty of restaurants around. The hotel is also conveniently situated just next to the metro station Esquirol. The room was clean and fresh, modern decoration very recent and on the 5th floor, great view on the "pink" roofs; good windows so you will not hear a noise from the busy street below. The only downside was that the bathroom, separated from the room by a frosted glass panel may not offer much privacy even for a couple of 12 years :-) would still recommend!

This centrally located hotel is the best of three mid-range hotels I've stayed in in Toulouse over the years. The hotel was refurbished in 2012. My room was modern and straightforward. The bed was comfortable by French standards. The shower was excellent. While the hotel is on a busy street, the noise didn't penetrate the room. The wifi was free and worked faultlessly.

The room floors have laminate flooring which is a bit of a downside as the person above one night had what sounded like stilettos - wear your slippers please!

Breakfast is a reasonable buffet, but a bit expensive. There are bound to be cafes nearby that are probably better bets.

I was there 4 nights and all the staff members I met were friendly and helpful.

Conveniently located a few metres from the "Esquirol" metro station in the centre of Toulouse, this hotel is on a busy street near the main shopping streets. Inside, the hotel is very modern and reasonably well equipped. The rooms are a bit on the small side and the single beds are not very wide, but the layout makes the most of the available space and the rooms are air-conditioned. There is also good sound insulation - essential if your room is street-side.

Unlike some previous reviewers, we found the staff to be very helpful and smiling.

We didn't try the breakfast. All in all, a pleasant, no-hassle stay.

This hotel is located in the center of Toulouse and is very cheap. It's clean but the staff is not very nice...

Rooms are noisy and small but globaly they are correct.

I advice this hotel for people with short budget who want to stay in a very nice place.

Last advice is to ask for a room with personnal restroom...
