Oh how things change
Posted Jun 10, 2015
Stayed at this aparthotel numerous times over the last 2 years. Each time I got an apartment room which though in need of some modernisation, was clean and spacious and above all quiet. This time around I was stuck in a studio room, which was essentially a bedsit from the 1970s! The room, whilst following a similar theme to the apartments, was pretty cramped and dirty looking. The beds were two of the smallest single beds in existence, with the softest mattresses going without making them out of marshmallows! The weight of the beds and the feet on which they stood were so light that even the slightest of movements meant the bed moved (and I'm avg UK height & build, not some lanky behemoth). The room was also at the front of the hotel, near the elevators, and seemed to lack even the most basic of sound proofing so everytime another guest used the elevator it was as if they were getting out in my room, and the noise from the street outside as if the cars were about to come through the wall. As a result I got <2hrs sleep and my back felt like I'd slept in a trouser press! The front desk staff (who took 20mins to get to the desk to check me in on arrival) were about as interested as I was rested when I mentioned the awfulness of the room and beds. Sad to say I will look for another hotel in Toulouse next time I'm in town.
