“Small but nice”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Stayed here on business for the second time. Very friendly and relaxing hotel. Staff are always courteous and helpful and the rooms are small but nicely appointed. Great location, close to the main square and would recommend.

The hotel is in a great situation and very stylish. How it achieved 5 stars with such a small standard room is beyond me - the rooms sizes are more 3 star but well equipped and nicely decorated and themed.

This hotel is situated right in the middle of the town,so great location to be able to walk out at night to sample the local restaurants.Parking is in an underground public car park close by,do not be put off by the access via the small roads. Very comfortable hotel and staff were very helpful.Pleased with our choice.

One of the great things about this smart and comfortable hotel is that it is just next to all of the main attractions of the lovely Rose city of Toulouse. (Just off the Capitole in a quiet street which leads down to the river) A charming welcome from well-groomed staff was a great start! Rooms were well-designed, nice Occitane toiletries and a very comfy bed but it's a good idea to ask for a room on the 4th or 3rd floor if you're staying on a Saturday night - although the double glazing works fine.
Our breakfasts were delicious - generous help-yourself cold buffet and a hot choice too. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this hotel.

Saw pictures of this hotel online, and knew I wanted to stay here. We were only visiting the city for a short weekend, and needed a base for the night.

The room was small but comfortable (if a little on the warm side). Reception staff were friendly and efficient. Despite the rest of the city being busy with rugby fans, it was fairly quiet here, and we were the only ones using the well stocked hotel bar.

We opted not to have breakfast in the hotel; although it looked pretty good set out in the bar area as we headed out in the morning.

The biggest benefit of the hotel is its location. Centrally situated, we were able to easily get the airport shuttle to and from the airport, with only a short work to the bus.

Staff were courteous and helpful. (Special thanks for saving us a lot of time at the airport with the tip on security!)

Great base for a weekend or a longer trip.

Right in the centre of the city, this hotel was a lovely find. Compared to some of the other hotels the overnight rate was really reasonable.
The hotel has no private carpark, but the underground public carpark is literally on the doorstep and we felt quite safe leaving ours there.
The rooms, eventhough on the small side, are really modern and quirky.
Spotlessly clean.
The reception area is a little bit 'futuristic', which made it feel a bit cold on arrival, but as we walked through the 'womb like' corridors, a bit too dark for my liking, the room most definitely put a smile on our face.

I have stayed here a few times on visits to Toulouse
It's a great find
A small but perfect Gem of a hotel
Perfectly situated in the centre and within walking distance from great shops/restaurants
Great value
Small but good rooms with a cute bathroom , it's great if you are not going to fill the rooms with bags
Staff are very friendly
There's an underground car park situated nearby which is very convenient
Altogether a cool and friendly place to stay
