This is the worst Best Western hotel I've stayed in. It is surprising that it has 4 stars. I would give it 2. As soon as we entered our room, we were not pleased. It smelled like old tobacco even though it was an no smoking room. The carpet had crumbs on it as well as nail clippings. Gross! We...

The location is great. It is only 200m from the airport-shuttle bus-stop (Jeanne d'arc) and 10 min walking to Place du Capitole. The hotel provides a tourist city map. We had a classic double room which was clean and well-equipped. The hotel is neither very big nor the newest nor most modern but it is very charming with a lot...

For a central location in Toulouse, the Best Western Hotel Athenee is located within walking distance of most of the town's major tourist attractions. Located just down the street from the Jeanne d' Arc metro and bus stations, this hotel is easily accessible from mass transit, with less than a five minute walk down Rue Matabiau. The hotel staff are...

The hotel staff was polite and very helpful. The hotel is close to Toulouse town center and almost everything, particularly restaurants and shops, are within walking distance. The room was clean and appeared to be recently renovated. The room rate included free breakfast (surprisingly good and above average) and aperatifs and snacks. The only minor drawback was our room faces...

This hotel is located on a bit of a sketchy, though safe, street just a short jaunt away from the top of the Old Town. However, the one small elevator is really not sufficient for its 6 stories. And the small breakfast nook doesn't offer enough seating when the hotel is near capacity. But there is a wonderful daily early...
