“Nice staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

We spend one night in Hotel Lons. Arrived by chance (the gps sugested there was a hotel here) and walked in asking for free rooms. We got a room on the top floor. It was ok for just one night, but had a damp smell and was quite dark. the bed was nice and the bathroom had a nice tub.
The lift didn´t go to the last floor, so we had to carry the luggage the last flight of stairs.
The breakfast was typical french, not so much choise, but plentyfull enough and the staff was realy nice and friendly towards everybody. The view out on the river was realy nice, the balcony was glass covered.
The location was very nice, a it was right in the center of town. Not many parkingspaces outside the hotel, but we got one so do not know where other guest parked.
I would like to visit Foix Again, and will concider this hotel again, but will chose a nicer room (1-th floor have nicer rooms)

Room Tip: Best rooms on 1.th floor

We booked one night at Hotel Lons during a trip through France; the hotel is right in the centre of the town (five min walk from the castle), rooms are clean and spacious, the staff is very friendly.

Spent the first night of our trip through the Pyrenees at this lovely hotel. Very comfortable and an excellent position but there was some noise from traffic. We ate in the restaurant and were very pleasantly surprised, we would return.

Foix was an impulse stop on our way through southern France. The Lons allowed us to view the rooms, and we choose a very nice room at a good price. Breakfast was in a lovely room overlooking the river, but was just ok and overpriced. To be fair, we had walked all over Foix before returning to the Lons as the best option. Desk staff all had good English.

We called in on the recommendations on TA but ... Firstly, this seems to be the only hotel left in Foix so it is the Lons or keep on driving. The friendly receptionist offered us the keys to two rooms, one at 76E and the other considerably more. We inspected both and then drove down the road to the Campanile, 3 km out of town, where we knew what we would get. Both rooms in the Lons were badly lit and had a musty smell. On this trip we have stayed at much better, including the Campanile, for much less.

We stayed here at the end of walking the Cathar Way. It was a pleasant, clean and welcoming stay. Traffic noise was a slight problem with a room overlooking the river, but the shutters helped.

Dinner was simple, good French country fare, well cooked and great service. Breakfast was an ample buffet with a good range of cereals, yoghurt and fresh fruit as well as the usual breads, croissants and jams.

Staff were helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the square are quieter, but views over the river are better.

We enjoyed this lovely old French hotel. An easy walk from the train station and very convenient to the whole town of Foix. Very clean, adequate rooms and bathrooms, comfortable beds. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts excellent. Evening meals in the dining room not to be missed.
