“Beautiful bijou hotel with excellent breakfasts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

We had a superb stay at Hotel des Arts and would highly recommend the place! The rooms are creatively designed around artistic themes (we stayed in The Art of Literature), have a clean, fresh and modern design with super comfy beds and nicely sized with ensuite shower room. The staff are extremely friendly and professional and the breakfasts served in the rooms are wonderful - fresh croissants, pain au chocolat, freshly-squeezed orange juice and home-made yogurt! Excellently situated in the heart of the old town with convenient access to the metro and within walking distance of the river. A real treat!

Funky decor (although the mood light overtop the bed headboard was admittedly a little bit over the top). Good location across from the musee des beaux arts. Nice staff. But incredibly reasonable price representing great value for money. Parking at nearby municipal lot and no lift means a bit of lugging of the luggage. Worth it though to enjoy this boutique hotel.

This small hotel is located in the old city on a quiet street in an upscale area with small boutiques. Walking distance from train (1.5 Km) and easy to find. It's about a 5 minute walk to any of the old city sights. Reception staff very friendly. Refurbished old hotel with decor by a British interior designer. Hip feeling. Rooms are large and clean, bed large, comfortable, two top rooms have airco because they are under the roof. Other rooms do not. Great shower and nice bathroom. No elevator but staff will bring up your suitcase. Breakfast is served in your room, with fresh squeezed OJ, good bread and croissants, jam, coffee, yogurt. A good price, excellent service, convenient, and a nice place. I would stay here again! Easy walk to airport shuttle bus (20 - 45 minute trip to airport, depending on traffic), metro.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with air conditioning in the summer.

A small boutique hotel, located above a quiet upmarket shopping street. The hotel is within walking distance of ze metro and of Toulouse City centre. It can be a little difficult to find . The map on the hotel's website could be improved. Reception staff were friendly and were especially helpful in aiding me find solutions to the travel chaos caused by the French Railway (SNCF) strike. The Arts is boutique in style. Rooms are a good size with a great shower. They are also clean and quiet. Breakfast is served in your room, which I passed on. If back in Toulouse, I'd gladly stay at the Arts again. It is well priced for the excellent service which it provides.

Recently stayed in this hotel with my wife. I really liked it, and we got an excellent deal via booking.com. No problems at all. If you are a light sleeper, you may want to look at another hotel, as you can hear some noise outside in the night time (didn't bother me at all). The location is fantastic. Friendly staff - quite a youthful place.

We came to Toulouse for one night to take part in a concert and could not have found a better place to stay! The hotel is absolutely lovely, our room (twin beds) very comfortable and spacious. What we really appreciated, was the personnel - they made it perfect! I have seldom run into such nice young employees with a very welcoming attitude. Our arrival was a little complicated, even with a navigation system difficult to find since street directions had been changed due construction, no problem, the receptionist helped us via phone to find the hotel, the next morning a delicious breakfast was served by another charming young man in our room - who discretely knocked on the door a half an hour later to ask if we would to have some more coffee! And then the lovely young receptionist, a woman this time, to check us out and give us some information on Toulouse.....perfect!! And another big plus is the hotel parking space, just a few seconds away from the hotel...very practical if you are traveling by car. All the monuments are very easy to get to on foot and perfect to discover the beauty of Toulouse.....we will definitely go back if ever again in Toulouse.

This hotel is a gem! On entering we couldn't see any reception or any sign that this was an actual hotel! However a young man came downstairs to greet us and all was well! It is a tiny place but full of soul. As I write this from my cosy and warm room I would urge visitors to forgo the chain hotels for this little haven! Our last stay was at Opera! No comparison, I would choose this every time!
