France Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan & Jane Fisher   Hotels in Toulouse, France
Many good hotels near the bus and train stations, others on the Place du Capitole, yet others offering advantages in various parts of the city.




There are more than a dozen convenient hotels facing Toulouse's main train station, the Gare de Toulouse Matabiau SNCF, which has the Marengo SNCF Métro station beneath it and the Gare Routière (intercity bus terminal) just to the north of it.

The Navette Aéroport (airport shuttle bus) arrives at the Gare Routière as well, so if you stay here near the bus and train stations you're well located and connected, with a variety of prices and comfort levels to choose from.

Facing the gare from the hopefully-named Boulevard Bonrepos and overlooking the Canal du Midi, are hotels of various star grades and quality:

Most prominent, the 3-star, 61-room Ibis Styles Toulouse Centre Gare and neighboring Hotel Ibis are reliable chain hostelries. The 18-room Hotel Le Bristol across the street is not as large or grand as it looks, but still impressive and well-located. The 2-star, 34-room Hotel Icare has advantageus prices, and the 15-room Hotel M Design is of proudly modern design.

The 3-star, 19-room Hotel des Beaux Arts, overlooking the River Garonne at the Pont Neuf, is a mere half-block from the École des Beaux Arts and Hotel d'Assezat in a lively student, restaurant and shopping area. The Metro connects you quickly to the train and bus stations and airport shuttle. More...

The 1-star, 18-room modern Hotel Anatole France is simple but tidy, and located less than a 10-minute walk northwest of Place du Capitole and within walking distance of most Toulouse sights on a relatively quiet place. More...

The area near the Compans Caffarelli Métro station, 1 km (6/10 mile) northwest of the Place du Capitole, is heavy on business: the Toulouse Business School is here, as are various other colleges and business centers. This means you can get a good deal for its many hotel rooms on weekends (Friday and Saturday nights).

Another is the 4-star, 136-room Hotel Mercure Toulouse Compans Caffarelli, right across the street from the Métro station, meaning you can be in the city center, and/or at the train, bus and airport shuttle stations, in a matter of minutes. More...

The 4- star, 135-room Novotel Toulouse Centre, with an outdoor swimming pool, is less than a 10-minute walk from the Compans Caffarelli Métro station. More...

An even better bargain is the fine modern 3-star business hotel called the Hotel de Brienne, with its own interior car parking facility. More...

Several useful hotels are also located near the Aéroport de Toulouse-Blagnac, 10 km (6.2 miles) northwest of the Place du Capitole, including the 4-star, 186-room Courtyard by Marriott Toulouse Airport, with an outdoor swimming pool, just a short ride from the airport, as well as the 4-star, 123-room Novotel Toulouse Aéroport, with a heated outdoor swimming pool, tennis court, and outdoor children's play area.
