“Overselling itself”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2015

This isn't a dreadful hotel. But nor is it the stylish, boutique property that their website hints at.

My room was small. The window overlooked a fire escape shaft with little daylight making it into the room and certainly absolutely no view (photo included).

The pink and lilac colour scheme might appeal to many guests and was certainly in plentiful supply.

The shower floor was tiled with pretty mosaic pieces, however the guest experience is unpleasant as these quite-sharp segments cut into your feet. The shower was an unusual shape that, at first glance, looks quirky and appealing. Once in the shower, though, you soon realise that the bizarre corners are dead space and you're left with a tiny portion to manoeuvre! There's hardly any storage space in the bathroom; even as a guy I couldn't find space for my few pastes and products!

On the plus side, there's a minibar/fridge tucked away and some clever storage in the room as well as a safe deposit box. The hotel is in a good central location. Staff were helpful and welcoming.

All in all, not bad. But if you want a room with any sort of a view (or anything more than a glimpse of natural light), give this one a swerve.

I had the best time at the Hotel Ours Blanc Wilson. I especially enjoyed the staff there because they were so friendly, especially Barbara Laffont. She really went the extra mile in making me feel comfortable and letting me know the good local haunts and places to go. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Hours blanc is a very nice city hotel in Toulouse. Nice rooms although a little small, very clean and complimentary mini bar. Nespresso coffee machine at the hotel reception for coffee! Friendly staff, everyone with a genuine smile! Bruno at the reception was super friendly and very very helpful, definitely added to our stay! Thank you!

Great location close to city centre, restaurants and cafés, shops, bus stops, historical sites, museums. Friendly and very helpful staff, including Barbara, Astrid, Eisha, and Bruno. Easy to and from airport via shuttle. Small room was clean with comfy bed, refrigerator with complimentary cold drinks, wi-fi, large screen tv, desk, and window that could open for view and fresh air. Clean bathroom. Retro elevator was special but tiny. Help yourself breakfast had nice variety. Hot and cold drinks available 24 hours in small lobby.

Room Tip: I requested a quiet room. The "nightlife" was referring to restaurants and cafés where peo...

Well located and served by experienced staff members. Clean rooms and good breakfast. Barbara and Astrid were very helpful with everything. Will certainly use this hotel again. On my departure the late night reception guy was very useful in organizing a taxi and making sure that I left for the airport on time.

Hotel is located right in the city centre. They advertise their rooms outside and prices were the same or cheaper than on via various websites. A multi-storey car park is close enough: EUR 19/ day but super tight! There's a fab market on a Sunday morning on the ground floor of that car park. Staff has been super friendly and helpful.

Rooms: We booked a superior room in September 2014- and could not imagine how small a regular room would have been. There was no space for the baby cot which can be rented at additional EUR 10. Clean, contemporary style, simple, rooms are in contrast to the old building, compact. Recommended.
