I was lucky to be invited 2 days to review the famous ” Grand Hôtel de l’Opéra “, this famous hotel located in the very center of Toulouse, 100 meters from the famous Capitole metro station. This historic hotel features a flowery courtyard and a spa with a sauna, steam room and massage treatments...
The location of the hotel in the corner of Capitol Square is ideal, especially since it is the “preferred area” for travelers visiting Toulouse. In addition to the location, it is the sense of service of the staff and the little touches that made me love this hotel so much, not to mention the bright colors in the hotel that reminds you that you’re in the south of France and the fabulous decor of the common areas and rooms: it’s like being at the Opera!
The rooms are extremely well soundproofed, our room overlooked the shopping street and the rooms having double glazing we were able to sleep like babies. I also note an excellent breakfast with fresh bread and quality products (generally I recognize a good breakfast thanks to its variety of products, and in the case of this hotel there was absolutely everything: eggs, bacon, pancakes, jam … you will not be disappointed).
The marble bathroom is very modern and the highlight is that it is not connected directly to the bedroom but in another room. I also tested the SPA “Terre de Jade” with a steam room and sauna on site and it is correct, you must book in advance especially if you want a very good massage and more.
Pleasant lounges are available in the lobby of the hotel, a baroque style that will transport you to another world. I had a very pleasant stay and I highly recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to discover the beautiful “Pink City” that is Toulouse.
