The street is noisy, partly because of work being done, partly traffic, but when the windows are cloud you hear no noise at all. I wish i had had more time for exploring Toulouse, which definitely deserves a stay of a couple of days.

The best place in Toulouse. Rooms are really nice, service good, the idea of a glass instead of a wall on one side of the shower is good. Don't hesitate to come to this hotel.

Parking outside to unload luggage was a bit frantic. I am disabled and cannot walk far. This was a problem as I had to park in the nearby underground carpark and walk back. I'm sure for ordinary guests it would be fine. You obviously cannot do anything about this but should make potential guests aware of the situation.
