Dubbed the Pink City for its rose-hued brick buildings, Toulouse has a charming, classic aesthetic. In contrast, the Pullman is a contemporary crash pad just minutes from centuries-old squares and monuments. The spacious lobby features modern furnishings, bold sculptures and contemporary artworks, and the stark white walls are offset by dramatic red and black detailing. Striking light fixtures and oversize orchids complete the look.
Bed and Bath
The guestrooms combine comfort and convenience, and all feature a good-size work area, soundproof windows and flat-screen TVs. The soothing gray, fawn and burnt orange palette is jazzed up by brightly colored wall prints. Perks in the Deluxe Rooms and Suites include free soft drinks and Nespresso coffee machines. The earth-tone bathrooms have invigorating rainfall showerheads, comfy robes, slippers and Roger & Gallet bath products.
The elegant SW restaurant offers regional cuisine using ingredients procured in local markets. Have the express breakfast (pastries, juice and coffee) if you’re heading to a meeting, or sit down for a leisurely brunch on weekends. The hotel predominantly caters to a business crowd, so there’s a connectivity lounge for high-speed internet and copying services and plenty of meeting and banquet rooms. There’s also a comfy lounge area at the Vinoteca bar, which serves an impressive selection of international wines by the glass or bottle. Fitness facilities include a small gym with cardio equipment and weights.
In the Area
The hotel is within easy reach of many of Toulouse’s attractions, including the majestic Place du Capitole, which houses the city hall, the opera house and a collection of 19th-century artworks in the Salle des Illustres. The Canal du Midi, once an innovative transport hub, is now a popular spot for boating. Get a fashion fix on Rue d’Alsace-Lorraine, a pedestrian-only shopping street with a Galeries Lafayette department store. There are plenty of restaurant options nearby, but the Michelin-starred Michel Sarran (a 10-minute walk away) is highly recommended. Try the seasonal three-course Capitole lunch menu paired with wine.
How to Get There
I have stayed here several times over the last 4 years. The Pullman is a well located hotel with modern, if not slightly on the small side, rooms. None the less, they are comfortable, well appointed and have large shower rooms with excellent amenities. Staff vary between very polite and helpful to downright surly and arrogant. Not all understand or have been trained on the Accor group loyalty scheme, so trying to get your entitled benefits could be frustrating!
Small bar to the side of the reception area and a restaurant on the opposite side.
Hotel can be very noisy from street noise.
Stayed here for a business conference while in France. The hotel staff was great, and the rooms were the largest we stayed in while in France! The conference facility and service was great too. They have self serve coffee / espresso machines right outside the conference rooms! The hotel is walkable for downtown shops & restaurants. The on-site restaurant is not bad either if you don't have time to walk around.
The hotel is well located for visiting the tourist areas of Toulouse, walking to shops, restaurants, and the train station. Our room was well soundproof; despite facing a busy street—with construction going on—we could not hear even the slightest of sounds. The beds have two duvets, one to lie on and one as a cover, making them supremely comfortable. The staff is outstanding as well: friendly, helpful, and professional.
Great hotel located just 5 minute walk from the train station. The main city sites are well within walking distance. The rooms are modern, clean and comfortable. Staff in both the reception and the restaurant friendly and extremely helpful. Good breakfast selection, dinner menu a bit expensive.
Not only is this an excellent hotel in terms of design and convenience but the hotel staff is, hands down, the friendliest and most helpful of any hotel I've ever stayed in, anywhere in the world. I don't know anything about the hotel's hiring and training practices, but whatever they're doing, they're doing it right! I couldn't recommend them more highly. The location is not far from the train station, and it's about a 10-minute walk to the city center.
