by fred23 Holiday Inn Toulon
We did not eat at the hotel so cannot comment on food.
Reception staff were very helpful and even gave me the use of a personal laptop when having computer difficulties.
The room was clean and comfortable apart from the lumpy pillows!
Some of the room cleaning staff did not seem very friendly and were reluctant to give you extra tea bags and did not replace used shampoo etc. This was mentioned to the manager and matter was sorted out very quickly.
Was given a late check out on request.
Bus 102 to Toulon- HYeres airport stops very close to hotel (only 1.40 Euro compared to a taxi approx 50 Euro) as does the no.40 bus to the Telepherique cable car up to Mount Faron.
Lovely produce market open every day except Mondays.
Overall a very enjoyable stay.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DuckyDaBest noisy rooms and bad internet quality
the room means to be soundproof - and it is partly true; you don't hear other guests. But what you hear, and not only a bit, is the road... which is the main road of Toulon (even if the window is closed). Yes, it is a double-glaze new window, BUT! Part of the window is still open to allow ventilation - useless as well in the winter (too cold air coming in) as in the summer (too hot air coming in, wasting the air-con power).
The personnel deems to be friendly - however, it is strict and will not give you any extras (like free parking, or upgrade to an executive room or reduced price breakfast - even if you book for a whole month). This is not what I can accept, and therefore - I have stayed only a few (unavoidable) days.
Fitness room was not available (although stated on the website), however, after 30 minutes of hot discussion the staff finally admitted me a (free) ticket to a local (old-fashioned and outdated) gym. Only AFTER I threatened to sue them because it was a breach of the booking conditions by their part.
Internet was horrible. Every day between around 19h and 23h, the internet was either inaccessible or EXTREMELY slow. Not only the WIFI, but also the computer in the lobby. Staff told me they will change this, but nothing ever happened.
Location is acceptable - but still a long way to walk to the city centre/harbour (2-3 km).
I can, unfortunately, not recommend this hotel. It claims to be renovated - yet the lobby is still... not inviting at all - impersonal and much too small. Even though the rooms are indeed refurbished, the problem with the noise from the road remains. No bathtub, just a shower.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BSP57 great memory!
Stayed 3 nights at this great located hotel in downtown Toulon: spacious room and hotel facility, diverse breakfast facing big bay window, close by foot to train station and small public park, it felt like being in a resort in the middle of an urban environment.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sandra63 Good location.
The hotel is located on the main street in Toulon and close to shopping, harbour and most other attractions. The rooms were clean and comfortable but as the hotel was still in the process of refurbishment there were lots of work still ongoing though this was not a problem. The restaurant had a small but very good menu as the food was good. The staff were very friendly and did everything to make us feel welcome. Would recommend this hotel.
