Reviewed 11 June 2014

Got into Foix and we got a room - we never book, so we were lucky. 2nd floor and facing the river. Our room was large, clean, a little tired in looks and wee short on the room for the toilet but the bathroom was large. Our room faced the river and opening the shutters got a lovely breeze. The room has no aircon or fans so in summer the room would be very hot because it was a very hot day when we arrived and a little stifling. Not that it is the hotel's flault, but heaps of sandflies coming form the river and at night if you had a light on, heaps of little bugs communed around them in swarms - but lights out and bed comfortable had a good sleep. The dinner at the restaurant downstairs was packed to the rafters and the food here was fantastic and so was the wine! Was a lovely place to visit and walk around to see the history and sites. Folks were friendly and spoke a little english and very helpful! Nice little find!

Room Tip: If you want a river view ask for one.

Our room was average in a simple country style with a good view over the river. It was a Sunday night and we were lucky to find a free (until 0900 on Monday morning) parking space immediately outside the front door. Parking could be a problem here. Pleasant lobby and excellent dining room overlooking the river where we had an excellent meal for a reasonable price. The staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke good English. Small elevator and rather dim lighting on timers in the corridors.

Room Tip: The river side has better views but the rooms are noisier with river noise and the main road immedia...

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Lons for four days in April, first for three days, and then for one day on our way back to Paris. If you are expecting a luxurious four-star hotel you shouldn't stay here, but from when we first set foot in the hotel we found it a welcoming, comfortable, old-style, unpretentious place to stay. Our first room overlooked the river and we recommend you ask for a room which does. We very much enjoyed eating our tasty inexpensive dinners at the hotel restaurant on the terrasse which overlooks the river, and from which the snow-covered Pyrenees in the distance can be seen. We also ate our adequate buffet-style breakfasts on the terrasse. Breakfasts are included in the hotel price. The hotel has wi-fi which worked well downstairs in the hotel lobby but only with difficulty in our room. Foix itself has somewhat limited attractions such as the old church and the castle, but it is enjoyable to walk about in, and it is within easy driving distance of Montsegur and the prehistoric cave at Niaux.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the river.

For the prices that Hotel Lons charges for their rooms, I would have expected a little bit better quality and comfort level. Instead, I felt like the room was modest at best. Decor and furnishings are simple and appear rather dated. While the lobby area is nice, the hallways upstairs are a little bit more mundane. The only thing positive I can offer is that the memory foam mattress was quite comfortable. Beyond that, I would have expected to pay under 60 Euro (not 75 Euro) for the room that I got.

Pros: closest to train station, memory foam mattress, helpful staff, free wi-fi

Cons: basic room, dated decor, simple furnishings, breakfast not included

Apart from the parking this hotel is perfectly positioned for a central Foix visit. Our room was more like an apartment!! Very clean and fab view over the river. Extra friendly and helpful staff. Once parked we just walked everywhere. Ideal for the chateau, shops and bars/restaurants. We used it for a live music concert at the L'estive.

Room Tip: 203 is BIG and great value, overlooking the river.

Very helpful staff on arrival. Parking was difficult due to road works which didnt show using gps. But managed to get a parking place in the square in front of hotel. Difficult to find restaurants open for dinner. We ate in the hotel restaurant one of the nights we stayed, which was okay. My husband found the bed to be too short for him but I found it comfortable. Room overlooked the River which was very nice, didnt seem to be too noisy like others have reviewed.

Stayed here one night, and picked it from the street. A very pleasant young man checked us in after letting us see the room before taking it. Given room 105 on first floor overlooking the river. Price was €77 for the night with free wifi.
The room was very comfortable with two double beds that were extremely comfy. Our big complaint would be that although it was a non smoking room you could smell it as soon as you walk in. However we found this is common in France.
At first we were worried it might be noisey as the train was just over the river but there was only one train during the night so a good sleep was possible. The bathroom was good with lots of hot water.
Wifi was good, and we managed to get free overnight parking outside the hotel. We did not eat at the restuarant it seems a bit pricey but plenty of other people did.
Easy access from hotel to chateau on the hill, and shops and restuarants.
