Reviewed 16 December 2012

Pros - Good location (very near from underground and on the corner of the main square of the city). friendly staff. Cons - wifi just in lobby-area and very old lift. And the very uncomfortabely stair to lift - if you have big and\or heavy luggage, it's not very convient.

Room Tip: I recommend to ask a room not on the third floor. The second floor is better

This hotel is only 15 metres from Place du Capitole so very convenient to restaurants, bars and shops. There was a Christmas market on the square during my stay - fabulous.
The reception is up a flight of stairs with no lift - not uncommon in Europe with its lovely character filled hotels.
Hotel was clean, room small but adequate with a renovated bathroom.
Breakfast was extra and consisted of the usual continental choices.
Staff friendly and helpful and speak english.

Though very centrally located in Toulouse, this hotel is quite horrible. I stayed in a room that was not heated and even the water was hardly even warm. The bathroom was a real horrible experience and even the very friendly staff did not make things much better.

We enjoyed our stay. Good breakfast (bread, cheese, Nespresso coffee, orange juice, jams, croissant, fruits, meat), very clean, not noisy but downtown. Friendly staff and they told us about a good restaurant (la regalade) which was amazing.
Tip : choose a 3rd level room, they're renovated. Some have showers and others baths, so if you have a preference you should ask for it. We could go back again!

I picked the Hotel du Taur for the price and the location. Both were reasonable, but there are also definite drawbacks to the hotel. I realized that it was only a two star hotel, but had no idea that you had to climb up a stairway to the second floor to reach the lobby. The rooms were clean and adequate, although mine faced an airshaft that let in some light and adequate air, but certainly didn't qualify as a view. I had breakfast the first morning, and it seemed OK, but I found it easier to get something at a cafe or patisserie afterward, because the price seemed a bit high for what I was getting. Service at the desk was spotty. I kept getting different information, and the degree of helpfulness and friendliness at the desk was quite variable. They do offer a nice computer with printer for short-term guest use, and there's wifi in the seating area. It was good for a first visit, but after walking around I think I'd try other hotels in the area in the future.

Room Tip: Try to get one that faces the large courtyard closer to the Capitole Square. I was able to see seve...

I stayed at the Hotel du Taur for 4 nights and couldn't have wanted a better hotel. The staff were very friendly and the breakfasts were excellent. The hotel was conveniently located for the centre of Toulouse and there were many excellent restaurants within easy walking distance. I would happily use the hotel again if I was lucky enough to have another trip to Toulouse.

If you're looking for a well-situated hotel in Toulouse with affordable prices, you're right at the Hotel du Taur. Regarding all the great reviews I read here, I wonder whether I stayed in another hotel, though.

The lady at the front desk was really quite unpleasant and snappy. Not really professional, if you're working in tourism. When I asked her, whether there was Wifi in the rooms, she told me in a rude kind of way that they only had internet in the "common room" and that it was clearly mentioned on their website.
At my arrival I thought: Great, a nice bath tub and so clean! When I wanted to take a bath though, I realized that the water didn't heat up at all. The next morning I still had no hot water. When I mentioned this inconvenient aspect during check-out the next day, I was told that it was perfectly normal to let the water run for 5 minutes until the hot water reaches my room, since the house was so old. Funny enough I live in an ancient 6-story-house in Paris on the 6th floor myself - I do have hot water whenever I like.
My room was quite shabby and really needs renovation. Nothing like in the pictures. Furthermore, I had a very nice roommate: a caterpillar right next to my bed. I do understand that spiders might come in when it gets cold outside. Caterpillars in a hotel room in the city centre I find rather alarming...

Je suis désolée que ce monsieur ne se soit pas plu chez nous ...
Il ne sait pas se servir des mitigeurs thermostatiques visiblement ...
Très étonnante aussi la critique sur l'accueil ... nos clients sont généralement absolument ravis de l'accueil chaleureux et du professionnalise de l'équipe de réception (voir les avis sur les centrales de réservation !!!!). Tout le monde met du coeur à l'ouvrage pour satisfaire nos clients !
