Hotel is beautiful and decor is gorgeous BUT we didn't sleep a wink until 6am as there was so much noise in the street! Our room was facing the courtyard and the Windows weren't soundproof enough. A horrible nights sleep! Make sure you don't face the courtyard on A Weekend. Week days may be better as there are bars down... More

This is an older building (with some interesting history) which has been completely done out into a modern boutique hotel. We booked a larger room and asked for a quieter room, which they gave us (at the back of the hotel, which was completely quiet). The hotel is just off the main square in the old town and having the... More

We spent 12 nights in French hotels starting in Paris & ending in Bordeaux. This hotel was by far my favorite and I was so happy I had chosen to stay there 3 nights!

We have been one night in this beautiful hotel. More Center of Toulouse is not possible. Parking nearby in one of the many Public Parkings. The Room is very nice, but not big. Very modern. Just in front is Main Place with all the Bars. Toulouse is beautiful!!!
