Best Western Hotel Athenee
Ranked #16 of 130 Hotels in Toulouse
Reviewed June 9, 2011

The staff were excellent. The breakfasts were good (buffet style with plenty of choice). The room was a reasonable size but, if I were to be picky, I'd say the décor in some parts could do with a bit of a tidy up; down stairs appeared to have been decorated/renovated very recently and was very nice and modern but it seemed the upstairs was still to be done.
The fridge in the room was very noisy so got turned off in the night and our room was next to the lift shaft which was a bit noisy.
Free internet and packed lunches was a pleasant surprise.
Overall it fitted the bill fine.

The hotel was reasonably priced at £85 for a double room. It is handily located between Matabiau railway station and the city centre (5 minutes walk from both). The hotel was clean, the staff were friendly and we were given 2 free glasses of wine on arrival.

We have been travelling around Europe and the UK for the past 33 days, staying at many hotels. This was one of the few that offered good value for money - clean comfortable rooms, an excellent breakfast, good in room facilities including tea making facilities and a fridge - and wi-fi that consistently worked.

Additionally the hotel provided some nice little extras such as a welcome drink and a lunch-box for the road - useful when you are moving from place to place

The hotel was only a 5 minute walk into the centre of the city., where you have a good choice of restaurants and fresh food markets on Sunday. There is also excellent walking along the canals and rivers, a nice way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Don't forget if you are planning to visit the Airbus facility whilst in Toulouse, and you aren't from the EU you will need to book 2 working days in advance.

The staff were also multi-lingual which was a bonus!

Should we visit Toulosse again we would very likely choose to stay here.

I like Best Western Hotels because they are not all the same but they almost always deliver value for money. I can say the same about Athenee in Toulouse. The hotel is close to the old part of the city with, location is very convenient, with the Metro station nearby. The rooms are normal, but they are adequate, nice and functionally furnished. Coffee and tea making facilities on request. Simple french breakfast included in room price. Free, free good working WiFi. I don't have any complaints about service or the cleanliness of the rooms. The saff are also nice. Genarally good impression .

This Hotel is not far from the train station in Toulouse, France. It was very modern and had all the amendities needed for a one night stay; they even provided a lunch for the next day. The Continential Breakfast was great and the staff were bi-lingual. Nice stay.
