“Good hotel, very good location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

The hotel is conveniently located not very far from the station (5 minutes walk) with a little bus station right outside and a bus stop for the airport bus just 1 minute 's walk away. The hotel is on the edge of the historical centre so we found it very easy to walk from it to the main sights and to some good restaurants. Our room was not large but was fine for three nights. The room looked old-fashioned but may have been refurbished recently - very clean. Despite the room being at the front overlooking the bus station we were undisturbed by any noise no doubt helped by the effective double (or quadruple) glazing! Yes the lift is small (but big enough for two people and suitcases) and the hotel has obviously been updated over the years - the lift is hidden in a corner of one of the corridors! The buffet breakfast (10 euros) is fine although without a huge range in the buffet. Better value might be got from the local cafés. We found the reception staff friendly and efficient. All in all I think that it is a very good hotel for a short visit to see the sights and appreciate the charms of Toulouse.

(I've uploaded a picture, since this description may be hard to believe! We stayed July 11, 2012.)

Our room faced an interior courtyard where our only view was dirty, peeling walls with exposed nails and wires...obviously this area has not been painted (or even cleaned) in years! The room also reeked of smoke, even though we were promised a "non-smoking" environment. To even GET to the room, we had to go up a tiny lift (one person with luggage at a time), then out a door into the courtyard before heading back inside to our room. The room was small, as we could barely open the bathroom door without hitting the bed. Luckily we were passing through Toulouse and only stayed one night.

If you are traveling by car, be sure to factor an extra 11 Euro into the room cost...this is what the hotel charged us (not the 10 Euro in the description) for using the parking garage across the street.

We spent over two weeks in France and had nice experiences at several hotels. This was not one of them.

Room Tip: On a positive side note, St. Sernin Basilica is absolutely stunning and only a few blocks away!

We have a hotel in the very center of Toulouse, we are surrounded by buildings, unfortunately we cannot paint the building of the neighbors.
All our rooms are non-smoking rooms, if your room smelt smoke, the customer before you didn’t respect the hotel rules… We are very sorry about this, but you could have call the reception to get an other room.
The price of parking is not our choice, the parking is not owned by the hotel, it is a public parking, we just propose to pay in advance for our customers.

The staff of this hotel were so kind. Even before I was a guest, they helped me with something. They really show the spirit of Toulouse hospitality. The location is also great. Right by a metro stop (although I walked everywhere) and about 15 minutes walk to the train station. Will definitely try to stay there on my next visit.

Hotel is in a very convenient location. Easily walk to train and main square.

We were very happy and will come back again. There is a chinese restaurant around the corner of the hotel ( on a street leads to the train station) that was really nice that one try.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

The Quality hotel is an old 3* typical French hotel in a great location just 10 minutes walk into the very centre of Toulouse Place Capitole. Parking is difficult in town so the hotel's arrangement with the Jeanne D'Arc underground car park right opposite at 10 EUR per day is a very good deal but ask reception for a special ticket before you park the vehicle. The journey into town from the airport takes only around 15 minutes.

My Executive room was quite small so standard rooms will be even smaller. Clean and fairly well equipped room, nothing special but ideal for a couple of nights stay. Staff are friendly and helpful. With a bus station right opposite, the hotel is not situated in the best of areas, but there are great bars and restaurants only 5 minutes away in Place Wilson.

On a price/quality ratio I really rate this hotel and would willingly stay there again next time I am in Toulouse.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back of the hotel.

This hotel is in front of the local bus station, in the Place Jeanne d'Arc. The noise was not a problem, but the friendness of personnel was not good. For instance, we were travelling by car, and you should move your car everyday to get hotel agreed price. But they do not advice you. The coffee room (cannot be called breakfast room) was just fair. Waitress were more interested on news rather than attending to guests. Rooms heating system was difficult to establish, so the room was always cold.
