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
Stayed with friends in January 2019 and found this hotel to be absolutely perfect in terms of location, comfort and (at the deal we received) price. The staff really went out of their way to help and all the time with friendly smiles. Couldn’t recommend this hotel more highly and would stay there again in a heartbeat.
Ideal for me as I was taking a train to bordeaux the day after and could walk 6/7 minutes to the station .
The hotel is very nice and clean as well as the room .
Staff very friendly even at the restaurant.
If you cross the road you can find nice bars etc.
The only thing missing is a SPA with sauna after a long day that is always good to have .
Having previously stayed at the Pullman in Berlin (before its recent makeover) we were anticipating a certain standard. Unfortunately our stay didn’t match our expectations. Our mid-range room had a massive crack across the ceiling and a had a whiff of BO about it.
We were told that the mini bar was free, great, or so you’d think but it had 2 cokes and 2 bottles of water in. And these were not always replaced. There was also an Nespresso machine, cleaning the room on our penultimate day they did not replenish the cups or the pods.
On the Friday night we looked at the hotel restaurant menu, but told reception we’d go in on the Saturday after all our sightseeing.
Reception on Saturday were helpful in pointing out all of the site to visit, or so we thought. What they failed to tell us was that the Gillet Jaunes were heavily active in Toulouse and had been every Saturday for months. And the places they pointed out to visit are where they Gillet Jaunes congregate. It was only when asking all the heavily armed police what was going on that they we became aware and they advised us to stay away from the areas we’d intended visiting!!!
So we were so glad that we had decided to eat in the hotel as the centre of the city was not the place to be. Imagine our surprise when we found out that the restaurant was closed every Saturday but we could eat in the bar. Now the bar is quite small with only about 6 tables where it was possible to eat a meal at. The rest if the bar was filled softer chairs every one of which had an adolescent watching football on 2 large screens or playing table football. All of the tables were gone, but we would not have chosen to eat there having looked inside. I do not expect to pay 5 star food prices to eat in a youth club.
Room service was inconsistent. I used the shampoo and conditioner only once, but they were thrown away and new ones put in their place. In today’s work where it would be good to eradicate single use plastics, Accor Hotels please consider installing wall dispensers and filling with premium products.
We had breakfast included within our room rate, but we would never have paid an extra 26€ each to have it.
In short not somewhere we’d rush back to.
We stayed at this hotel two years ago and as we were pleasantly surprised by both the hotel and the city, we decided to return. Although the check-in was slightly chaotic yet friendly, with three people behind one screen, we got our keys for the room. The room was modern and well appointed, with a very comfortable bed, great amenities and a rainfall shower. During our stay we never got the right amount of towels (we were three but only got for two) but we managed. Breakfast was still good although I had the impression it was slightly scaled back. Nice selection of breads, cheeses, juices and pastries. The fresh fruit this time was not very good and there was no mentioning of ordering eggs a la carte. The menu did mention crepes and pancakes made to orders. The employees overall are very accommodating. I will mention the cheery bearded breakfast manager and his waiter Benjamin, as well as Marie from Front Desk who gave us a local's perspective on Toulouse, where to eat, where to go etc. The hotel is slightly out of the city center but most places could be reached in a 15 minute walk. And with such a delightful city as Toulouse, that is no crime. Overall a great base for a city escape.
Modern, quiet, large room with large, very comfortable bathroom and separate WC. Comfortable, latge bed, very clean sheets, large space to put luggage, large desk. Equipment for tea/ coffee making. Very large and tasty breakfast.
