As others have said, the hotel itself is fairly ordinary, and in a very slightly run down area, but neither are really that much of a problem. What sets the place apart, and overall makes it superb value, is the staff. They really are most helpful and engaging, and a special mention to Lionel, Charlotte and Olivier. As the hotel...

While the room was quite small, we were comfortable. The reality is like most visitors, we really just needed a place to sleep at night and did not spend much time in the room. There were some nice touches- the happy hour at night with wine and local canapes, and the breakfast buffet was plentiful with local cheese, yogurt and...

Wife and I spent two days in Toulouse before picking up a weeklong tour. The hotel was part of the pre-tour package. Located in a grittier part of the city, it's within ten min walking of the town hall and two min from the town bus station. The better eating spots are also within walking distance. Rooms are simply furnished,...

The room was small, but clean and comfortable. There was a skylight with a remote control too so great for natural lighting and then pitch dark for napping with jet lag. There is a daily happy hour for guests that includes complimentary wine and hourdorves. Cozy atmosphere and the staff is great at both the front desk and breakfast buffet....

The best thing about the hotel Athenee in Toulouse is the staff. From the receptionist who offered us a change of room having judged that the trip to the 7th floor would be difficult for us, to the waitress in the breakfast buffet, they were all great. The hotel itself is fine, not spectacular but clean, comfortable with good beds...

We stayed one night at the Best Western Hotel Athenee whilst on a bike trip along the Canal du deux mers. Our room was clean and comfortable and had everything we wanted and needed. The hotel is very central and close to lots of good restaurants. The best thing about the hotel was the extremely helpful reception staff. Nothing was...

I reserved and paid this hotel by Galahotels. They offered quite good price and they are publishing,that all rooms are with mini bar or fridge. But Standard rooms are actually not, just the Comfort ones, which is unusual for 4-star hotel. I've never been in the 4-star hotel (Standard or Comfort room) without mini bar or fridge. I explained it...

Stayed here for two nights in May. About ten minute walk from Capitole. Many restaurants and bakeries within a five to ten minute walk of the hotel. Although the room was on the small size it was comfortable and clean. We took advantage of the onsite parking – at €10 per night. A good 3* hotel. Staff very helpful.

This Best Western is not the nicest nor the most modern I've been too. We had a room on the 5th floor.
