Best Toulouse Hotels

Toulouse Hotels

At the foothills of the French Pyrenees, Toulouse is the capital of the Midi-Pyrenees region. Fiercely independent for most of its history, there are still dual-language signs - French and Occitan – all over the city. The narrow, stone streets and gothic-style buildings give it a quaint atmosphere, but in reality, Toulouse is a vibrant city with fashionable boutiques and trendy bars. Only on Sundays does it feel like a step back in time, when shops close and street markets open.

Things to see

The Basilica Saint-Sernin is Toulouse’s most famous landmark. It is the largest Romanesque Church in the world and a point on the Santiago de Compostela pilgrim route. Its tiered spire of burnished terracotta stone casts a shadow over the square below. On Sundays, this square hosts a lively flea market, which does a roaring trade in antiques. Wander the streets of the Historic Center, taking in the ostentatious, old Telegramme Building and the Cathedral St. Etienne. For shopping, head to the Place du Capitole, the central square which is lined with shops and cafés. Be sure to pause for coffee and chocolates at one of the little chocolatiers – the sweet aroma of cocoa will be enough to lure you in. If you tire of shopping and sightseeing in the city, head out on a trip into the Pyrenees where you can discover medieval forts and vineyards – nearby Gaillac offers some great wine-tasting tours.

Hotels in Toulouse

Considering it’s a large French city, there are some surprisingly good hotel deals in Toulouse. Its luxury hotels may not have the extravagance of some Paris hotels, but they make up for it with atmospheric surroundings and they offer plenty of comfort. Cheap hotels in Toulouse are also readily available, many of them within the center of Toulouse, providing simple but pleasant rooms, along with amenities such as free WiFi and views of Toulouse’s prettiest historic buildings. Further out into the mountains, you’ll find more traditional, rustic guesthouses and lodges, perfect if you don’t plan to spend much time in the city.

Where to stay

To be at the heart of the shopping and restaurant district, stay around the Place de Capitole. A good selection of mid-range and upscale hotels are available here, and the square is situated halfway between the Basilica Saint-Sernin and the Cathedral. If you’d rather be right inside the historic district, stay at one of the boutique hotels or guesthouses populating the narrow streets around the Cathedral. The area around Saint-Sernin is a bit run-down, but hotels are cheap and you’ll have a view of one of the most beautiful buildings in the city, as well as street markets just outside.

How to get to Toulouse

Toulouse is served by the nearby Toulouse-Blagnac International Airport, which receives flights from several other European cities. Visitors coming from outside Europe will need to make a connection in Paris. It’s also possible to take the train from Paris – it’s a journey of between 5 and 6 hours on the TGV. From the airport, there are train and bus shuttle services running to the city center, a journey of about 20 minutes. You can also hire a car, though if you are staying in central Toulouse and the hotel doesn’t offer parking, finding somewhere to park can be a challenge.
