“Good and Reliable”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

We've staryed at Albert 1er many times through the past 10 years or so. It's always clean, fresh, comfortable and the service is always personal and timely. The rooms are small, like most French hotels, but roomy enough for two. The room was very clean and bright when we arrived this afternoon and the welcome was warm. We were directed to our next stop with a good map, a verbal description of how to get there and even more help when asked.
While many hotels will be acceptable, most will not be so friendly and personal.
We'll stay here again when we visit Toulouse.

We booked a "King Size Superior Room" for 3 nights in April of 2014 while visiting the area. (We took day trips to Carcassonne and Albi.)

Our room was comfortable, our room rate included a nice buffet breakfast. There was a coffee machine and a microwave oven in our room, both were god-send in windy, raining and cold days during our visit. Over all, we enjoyed our stay.

We took a taxi from Toulouse Matabiau station to the hotel, the ride was about 6 minutes and the fare was 10.30Euro. On leaving, we asked the hotel to book a taxi to take us to Matabiau train station. However, the fare was more than 18Euro, then we found out that when booking a taxi, the meter started running as soon as the taxi left its home location. (While making day trips and without luggage, we walked from hotel to Matabiau SNCF station in about 18 minutes.)

Room Tip: Online reviews said that some rooms can be very small, that was why we booked a "King Size Supe...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking time to leave us your feedback about your stay, as it is very important for us to know what our clients experienced in our hotel.

I am glad that you appreciated the breakfast special offer that includes it in the room rate. What a good idea, to enjoy the nice surrondings of Toulouse like the medieval City of Carcassonne !

I hope to have the pleasure to welcome you again in Toulouse.

Kind Regards,

Hanna

The hotel is in a very good position, it easy to find and really near both to the public transport and to the city center, the real heart of Toulouse. The rooms are very nice, some of them are maybe a little bit small, but they are clean, well organised and you will find everything you need. My only complain is about the breakfast, that is fresh and good, but that could be a little bit more rich (no scrambled eggs, no bacon).

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking time to leave us a comment about your stay.

I am glad to read that you really appreciated it.

We try to make our breakfast very complete and healthy with different sorts of juices and hot drinks, seasonal fresh fruits, local honey, jams, yogourts, cheese and milk, meat... Your observation will allow us to keep improving it and I thank you for that.

I hope we will have the pleasure to welcome you for another stay.

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel, the first time a few years ago when everything was fine. This time (although its not the fault of the hotel) was somewhat different. Our stay over a bank holiday weekend seemed to bring out all the drunks in Toulouse who then wanted to walk past the hotel late into the night and early morning singing, screaming and shouting as they passed, this continued even on a Sunday night. Suffice it to say after three nights of sleep deprivation we needed to get home for some peace and quiet. We will not be staying here in the future. The hotel though is clean, tidy, comfortable and conveniently located for the centre of the city and has decent sized rooms (should you request them), shame about the noise. An additional minor quibble is that although coffee and tea are provided, there is no milk.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking time to communicate on your experience in our hotel, as it is very important for us to receive feedbacks from our clients in order to improve the quality of our services.

I am sorry to hear that you were disturbed by the noise of people in the street during your week-end, as this neighbourough in Toulouse center is known to be alive on day but very quiet on night. Although we are not completely responsible for people walking arround the hotel, I understand your frustration and disappointment if you were trying to have some sleep.

Regarding the milk, this product is actually completely part of our breakfast, so I am surprised to read that you didn't find it. We even offer soya milk for allergic people.

I hope you will not stay on these negative feelings with our hotel and that we will have the pleasure to welcome you once again.

Kind Regards,

Hanna

This hotel is in a very nice location, close to the center and metro stops, but on a quiet side street so you will not be disturbed by noise. The staff were very friendly, helpful and well-informed about the city. The breakfast buffet of local foods was excellent too.

Amazing location in the old part of the city near Capitole Main Square, shopping and restaurants.
It's a 5 min walk from the drop off of the airport Shuttle at Place Jeanne d' Arc. Very comfortable and quiet with a great breakfast. The staff was very friendly and helpful providing us with a great walking tour map and helpful suggestions. They recommend the Winter Garden Restaurant and it was amazing! The hotel staff made our stay in Toulouse so enjoyable. We would definitely return.
So sorry it took so long to write our review but we returned home after a month in France to many family obligations.
