Not recommended for people with heavy baggage
Posted May 11, 2016 on Hotels
I selected this hotel, even though it was not cheap, because we had a lot of heavy baggage and it was convenient to Toulon train station.
I do not recommend this hotel for anyone with heavy baggage. The hotel is old and tired and does not warrant the 3-stars it claims to be. The entrance was not so obvious - we first thought it was the entrance to a pub. A small desk at the front door serves as Reception. You then lug your baggage up some steps to a little lounge area. Thankfully there is a baggage room but I do not think it is locked, so be sure to lock your stuff.
The steps do not end there. We took the elevator up and into a different part of the building. You are faced with a narrow corridor with a couple of steps up to the rooms. The room is okay.. bit small. The bathroom, nothing special.
The hotel itself is accessed via a little step from the pavement and the only parking to unload is a space on the pavement between two trees and is not exactly obvious. We ended up parking in the station carpark at a whopping 2 euros per 15 minutes!
I did not like that check in is late- 3pm but check out is fairly early. The personnel at the front desk are pleasant and speak English, if required. After a short wait they managed to find us a room that was ready a bit before the 3pm check-in.
Personally I do not think this hotel is good value for the 70- 80 euros we paid. We should have remained at our cheaper, more comfortable hotel and used a taxi to the station.
