“Very satisfying stay”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

As usual, this was a good Ibis hotel. It is conveniently located near the train station which is also where the airport shuttle dropped us off. We stayed one night.

The room was clean and a decent size. The bed was a bit bigger than we typically get and the bathroom was more of a typical bathroom (not the modular pod bathrooms). The staff at the front desk were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was also good, plentiful, and tasty.

Directly opposite the impressive Gare Matabiau, with trains serving most of France, only a stone throw from starting point of the shuttle bus taking you to the airport in little over half an hour and a short walk from a number of restaurants the attractive 1920s building hosting the Ibis Gare Matabiau is well located for travellers - though, be warned, a wrong turning will quickly take you to the seedier side of city life. The hotel itself is adequate; the rooms, clean with no frills and perhaps on the small size, are fine but for the price of around 95 euro for single occupancy no bargain (September 2012). The staff were charming and helpful, the strongest point of the place, which made it even more heart breaking to see them struggle with their resources. The bar is far from cosy or welcoming but we thought a nightcap was in order; there was a dribble of cognac in the bottle along with some flies! Dead ? Probably but flies none the less. The malt whisky the same! The next day the same bottles were back on the shelf behind the bar; oh dear, oh dear!

Room Tip: The front can be a little noisy in the morning

An old hotel reshaped (more or less) into a standard Ibis. Charming receptionist, convenient (but expensive) parking, good for transport (opposite train and bus stations). The room was very quiet and the air-conditioning was good- but a strange shape- long and thin (practically impossible to get to the bed on the window side), and with one of the smallest bathrooms I've ever seen, except in a caravan... The neighbourhood (specially Rue Bayard) is a bit seedy (typical of areas near stations, in fact), but not threatening and only a short walk from the centre.

This Accor Group hotel is well situated for those 'in transit'. There is a frequent bus shuttle service (just €5) connecting the hotel with the airport and the hotel is just 2 minutes walk from the train station and only a short distance from the bus station. Compared to other IBIS hotels, the rooms are rather on the small side and the bathrooms not quite up to modern standards. As I invariably find with all hotels in the Accor group, the staff were extremely courteous and helpful.

There are many aspects to this hotel that offer advantages to the traveller. The location of this hotel is its key advantage. Whether one is travelling by train, flying in to Toulouse or arriving by bus the hotel is just ideal. It is located directly accross the road from the train and bus stations while there is a stop for the airport shuttle bus right by the hotel.
The other aspect is the staff, except for one young man all speak very good English and all are very eager to help. I arrived the hotel on a Sunday afternoon only to find that there was mix-up from my travel agent who only booked my room but forgot to make the payment, but the staff were very helpful- they allowed me to occupy the room on Sunday and helped in communicating with my agents on Monday to effect the payment. On my cHeckout day they allwed me a late checkout without any qualms.
On the downside is the standard of the rooms- very basic with little for luxUry- standard For an Ibis or Formule1. I guess you get what you pay for applies here. I will definitely go back there any time I am in Toulouse.
