“more design that practicality”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2012

lobby is fantastic, rooms are spacious and certainly designer - but so design that the seems to have forgotten certain practical things - like cupboard to hang you clothes - so they had to add ikea stand alone wardrobe - with 1 shelf and 3 clothes hangers. only 3 hangers??? what sort of travelers are they expecting?? Desk is also about as deep as my computer and no chairs in the room - you have sit on designer low soft stool instead.

Wifi was also had poor bandwidth (I was there for work) and the cable connection didn't work in my first room so had to change rooms.

So if you don't mind piling you clothes in a heap and don't need wifi and like stylish entries lobbies it's great. If you are there for work you might be better off finding a more practical and less cool place.

I had a good stay, service is good. The staff is very very cooperative (for example.. I called reception to ask how I connect to internet an the person was in my room with cable in 30 secs..wow we are in france?) Size of the rooms are good. Breakfast is good :)

There is a happening IRISH Bar in front of hotel. Get ready.
There should be some deals for longer stay :)

Overall, good stay. Satisfactory.

Room Tip: A superior room is better, as it is in front of the hotel to get good view and light.

I found the website fantastic, but what a disappointment when you arrive...
There are some good design starts but most is far too much, trying too hard, over-designed!
The staff was very friendly and spoke good English but when we got the rooms they were nice to look at but we had the toilet just behind a screen and only a bath - all in the same room! The photos look soooo much better!
The hotel is between two very busy roads!

This hotel does not promise much from the outside, but the lobby/bar area gives you a taste of the modern minimalist decor that you will find throughout. We felt like we were in a modern art museum. The rooms are fairly large and have a lot of the decorator touches mentioned above. One warning - make sure your room has a shower that you can stand in. There are some rooms like this and the rooms with a handheld shower head will result in a mess that looks like it rained inside. Another downer. We were told that the breakfast was not included in the price, only to find after we went out for breakfast that it was. Other than this slipup, the staff was very pleasant and helpful.
The location seems pretty convenient, but make sure you get good directions on walking. A wrong turn found us in an unpleasant neighborhood. We were able to walk to a very nice local square with several nice restaurants and even some live entertainment after dinner.
Parking was a challenge, but there are spots available at the hotel.

Rooms are small but very cool decor. Comfortable beds and the bains (bath) is a highlight. Onyl criticism is lack of shower curtain which i presume would spoil the effect of the decor but also means everthing gets wet when you take a shower unless you're very careful!

First the location: Walking distance to the center, the Hotel is well located and give a chance to visit the town. Located close to La Halle Au Grain.

The atmosphere: Simple... Efficient. When you enter you feel already confortable. Toulouse is a very easy going place.. the Hotel gives you the same feeling.

The room is a very design.. Each room apparently has a different design. Our room was Red... very romantic.

The service was very good as well, a change for the french welcoming style????

The overhall experience was really amazing.
