The Grand Hotel de l'Opera, symbol of "art de vivre" is nowadays one of the most famous hotels in Toulouse. Located on the Capitole square, in the heart of the "pink city", the history of the hotel stands among the oldest of Toulouse. In the 17th century, in the midst of the Renaissance period, this nice monument sheltered a monastery. The 1789's events disturbed its quietness. The building was change into the "Lycee de la Revolution", the school of revolution. New metamorphosis a few years later when the Opera Dance School of Toulouse makes it its own. In this new designation, the Grand Hotel de l'Opera tribute to its talented tenants who only had to cross the street to perform on stage at the "Theatre du Capitole". In 1980, the amazing building is refurbished as a sumptuous 4 Star boutique hotel combining the mobility and the charm of Toulouse mansions. Ever since, the reputation of the Grand Hotel de l'Opera is established. Our hotel continues to warmly welcome guests from all over the world. In 1996, a fire destroyed no less than 36 rooms. Two years later, Rouleau Hotellerie acquires the Grand Hotel de l'Opera, gives it a fully new direction and restores the hotel to its full splendor. The interior design was magnified by Elisabeth Drapeau. The entire team is looking forward to welcoming you soon to our peaceful haven facing the Capitole.

"Good hotel, good staff, good location"

User 09/11/2021

We stayed 4 days for a long week-end. Nice room, good breakfast and very centric location. We could walk easily to most of the locations we wanted to visit. Plenty of shops and restaurants around, but the hotel itself is quiet.

"Lovely "Grand Olde Dame" in the heart of Toulouse"

William P, Glendale, Arizona 22/10/2021

This hotel brings you back a hundred years. The paintings, sketches, and photos on the walls add to the atmosphere and ambiance. It is located directly on Place du Capitole which makes it very convenient to restaurants and shopping. The bed was very comfortable and the air conditioning/heating was good. Drawback: parking is across the street in a public underground parking lot, which means you have to schlep your bags from the parking lot to the hotel. Not good, especially since the elevator in the parking area only goes to level -1, which means you have to lug your luggage up a set of stairs. Lisa in reception was friendly and awarded us an upgrade because of the problems we had with the luggage/parking capabilities. Breakfast was adequate, but not great.

"A Sad Tired Old Grande Damme"

Coastal31806287496, Geneva, Switzerland 22/10/2021

The location of this “used to be” elegant hotel is superb on Place du Capitole, however it is showing it's age and is need of refurbishment and renovation. Lise, at Reception, is the saving grace, professional and was most helpful to assist (there are no bellmen or anyone to assist with baggage). Breakfast is adequate but not outstanding. We went out for the day and came back at 16.00h (4P) to find that our room had not been cleaned. The man at Reception was most rude when I asked to have the room cleaned and I had to negotiate to have it done right away rather than later after I rested. Recovering from COVID should be an incentive to provide great service not an excuse for downgrading what was once a great hotel (I was last here about 20 years ago).

"Best hotel on Capitol square"

zanlux, Bertrange, Luxembourg 22/09/2021

This hotel is perfectly located for a visit of Toulouse : in the center and close to everything. The hotel has the charm of the old hotels but very clean and with all the modern features you would expect for a hotel of this category. Just one minor suggestion for improvement : the bottle of water in the room should be free.

"Wonderful ambiance."

DrHappy0, Denver, Colorado 03/02/2020

Lovely historical decor. Central location on main square. You can easily walk to museums, churches, and other attractions. Many restaurants available, the best on side streets off the main square. Subway stop is three minutes walk away.

"Brilliant hotel in the heart of Toulouse"

dsicklen, Lannes, France 17/01/2020

A great hotel staffed by professional and friendly people. The location is perfect for central Toulouse and they take away the hassle of parking in the city. Shops and cultural sites are all a short stroll away, as are some excellent brasseries and restaurants. No question is too difficult for the staff as they will provide all of the assistance that you could require. Book direct - they appreciate it.

"Charming and picturesque "

CuriousSophia, London, United Kingdom 13/01/2020

Gorgeous hotel, in the most incredible location in the centre of beautiful Toulouse. We stayed just before Christmas and the hotel is perfectly located on the main square where the Christmas market is held. The rooms are very quiet and well insulated, so we didn't hear or feel any disturbance from the crowds, we loved being so close to all the action! The rooms are plush and decorated in timeless French style with heavy drapes and thick carpets, with original artworks throughout. The bathroom was lovely, mostly marble and very clean, and I loved that the toilet was separate with proper doors, so that couples or friends travelling together can have privacy. We had a small balcony overlooking the entrance to the hotel. The view was not particularly special as we didn't face the main square, but it felt very French and relaxed. The breakfast is good with a broad selection of pastries, breads, meats, cheeses and cereals with fruits. Staff were lovely, and although some spoke very little English, we got by perfectly fine. The bar area on the ground floor is full of character and colour, as are most of the lobby spaces throughout. The antique wooden staircases are a little creaky but stunning. Overall, a very enjoyable stay, would definitely return!

Dear Sophia, First of all we would like to thank you for taking the time to leave us such a detailed comment due to your recent stay at the Grand Hôtel de l'Opéra. We are pleased to read that you appreciated our prime location, your quiet deluxe room with a balcony on the third floor, the cleanliness of the room, our buffet breakfast and service provided by our staff. During the christmas period we had some of the porters who do not regullary work with us, normally all of them have quite a good level of english. We appologize if some of them spoke only very little english. Do not hesitate to contact reception directly for your next stay to be shure to get the same or similar room for your next stay. We wish you all the best for 2020 and are looking forward welcoming you soon again. Best regards, Sandra Lampée, General Manager

"Great Location with Period Style"

OzSooty, Sydney 09/12/2019

This hotel has an attractive 'old world' style and a great location right on Place du Capitole. Our Balcony Room provided plenty of space for two people and included an open verandah. The King bed was very comfortable, the curtains kept the room dark in the mornings and the room was quiet as it faced out the side of the hotel away from the square. There was a nice bathroom with a good shower. And I applaud the use of pump-bottles for the toiletries to reduce plastic waste. The hotel has a lift from the foyer, but there were two small steps on our floor between the lift door and our room. We didn't use the hotel's breakfast room during our stay, and while there is no restaurant in the hotel, there is a restaurant and brasserie right outside the entrance (and despite these two having a very similar name to the hotel, I do not believe they are part of it). There are many other dining options in the Place du Capitole and others within an easy walk. The hotel's bar area was very pleasant for a pre-dinner drink. The car entrance (which may be tight for larger cars) can be used for dropping off bags and people, but parking is provided in the underground public car park in the square. Hotel staff will park the car for you at no extra charge.

Dear clients, First of all we would like to thank you for your detailed feedback due to your stay at the Grand Hôtel de l'Opéra. Me and my team are pleased to read that you have appreciated our location, your prestige room with the patio, the bathroom and the comfort of the bed. Concerning the toileteries please be aware that we change to Nuxe products very soon and that in all classic and confort rooms we will use pump bottles to reduce plastic waste. Indeed both restaurants are completely independant of the hotel, both the gastronomic option Les Jardins de l'Opéra and the brasserie de l'Opéra have an independant owner. As you mention a lot of restaurant options serving excellent food are within walking distance of the hotel. We hope welcoming you again this year and the entire team joins me to wish you a happy new year 2020. Best regards, Sandra Lampée, General Manager

"Quirky and charming"

shane n, NC 01/11/2019

Set right on the Place Capitole square , you get to walk to virtually all the historic sites, restaurants and the very efficient and clean metro. Friendly staff and they offer some of the best beds I have ever encountered . The front desk staff were especially helpful trying to help find vegan restaurants for me. This place is lovely
