You lurch off off your train, glad to be in Toulouse, relieved to have finally arrived. But now you have to find your hotel for a one-night stop before moving on.
Luckily you had the sense to book ahead, so now all you have to do is find the hotel.
The IBIS is right there, as you exit the station. Right across the canal and a short trek across a not too daunting road system. It's what you'd expect and not much more from this cookie cutter hotel they've duplicated in countless other cities.
The room is well proportioned and reassuringly clean. But don't expect anything fancy like a coffee machine, or a few impatient tea bags waiting to fulfill their destiny. Nope. This is a "we put you up, what more do you want" sort of hotel. True they claim they'll fix any problem within 15 minutes or you get to stay free, but if you believe that you'll probably believe anything.
Don't accept a room on the 5th floor as it seems the walls are made of tissue paper. But the water's hot, the beds comfortable and tomorrow's another day.
