Sometimes there’s nothing better than an ultra-modern, sleekly minimalist hotel. At other times, you want to indulge in a bit of old-world charm. It’s at those times that you need a hotel such as the Grand Hôtel de l’Opéra. Ideally situated in the Place du Capitole in the centre of historic Toulouse, this hotel is bursting with character, with opulent décor lending it a nostalgic air.
The city’s best museums, galleries, shop and restaurants are right on your doorstep, with many others just a stone’s throw away. Feel like taking a day off from sight-seeing? No problem: the Place du Capitole offers the best people-watching in town, so simply settle in at a café and let the rest of the world go by.
Whether you’re relaxing in your stately, well-appointed room, sitting in the bar with an apéritif, taking a moment to yourself in the spa, or enjoying a dinner in Michelin-starred restaurant Les Jardins de l’Opéra, the Grand Hôtel de l’Opéra is the perfect haven after a day of exploring the natural and historic sights of the beautiful city.
How to Get There
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
This hotel is a very well known address in Toulouse; the Grand hotel de l'opera used to be the place of the artists, famous, and rich travelers; despite the tentative of the owners to keep the status, is today a little out dated hotel; rooms are tiny, and old fashion. the luxury hotel became a little pale.
however the location is one of the best as you are walking distance of all the important attractions of the city.
Have stayed three or four times at Grand Hotel de l'Opera as this 19th century hotel brings to mind another and different era of luxury. The rooms feature red walls, luxurious wood moldings, belle epoque paintings, and many mirrors.
Service is absolutely impeccable. If Le Guide Michelin gave stars for the food in the breakfast room, they'd assign trois(3) etoles!
A few of the Grand Hotel de l'Opera's bathrooms have been updated with modern [Italian-style] bathrooms. The existing traditional shower/bathtubs (80% of them, maybe?) are dangerous and would not be allowed in the USA. Firstly it takes a high leg lift to enter or exist these tubs. Worse, the tub bottoms are rounded and very slippery. This writer is in good physical condition and even I tended to slip in the shower tubs. The hotel must modernize the bath tubs without delay!
