I was at this hotel 10 months ago with family, not easy to find a good hotel in Toulon, there is just not that much choices and most of them are in the 3 stars range, not a very touristic city (I'm from the area). So we decided to stay at the Best Western Corniche (there is another Best Western hotel in the city so make sure it is the Corniche one). The hotel is very well located, ocean front, charming little front patio and lovely view from the breakfast/restaurant room. Hotel has parking (limited), staff was very nice and helpful with a more personal approach that you always find while travelling in smaller hotels/boutique.
Many restaurants on the street few minutes walk make the eating out very easy,there is also a small market down the street if you need few things.
The hotel was charming and we had a good experience, unfortunately our room was very small (but nice and bathroom very well set up) for 3 (2 adults and 1 kid). We could not move together without having 2 of us wait on top of bed to make space, I know it is France and like most of the hotels in Europe, rooms are smaller but that was absolutely ridiculous. Also we did not had a house phone in our room, I asked the front desk and was told that it was the only room in the hotel without a house phone. I usually do not care much but because i was travelling from the US with my US cell, my friends and family had to call me on my US cell phone and the roaming charges are always expensive for the caller and receiver.
I do not think the hotel is well suited for large family, even for 3 peoples, it was hardly manageable for us. Price was not that cheap either (around $220/night), not a fortune but for a Best Western (although in France, Best Western hotels are higher by 1 star), i thought it was on the high side. Overall, good hotel and specially because the lack of choice in this city, a 3.5 overall rating. less
