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
My son was checking in on his 21st birthday and was traveling on his own. I called the hotel and asked if they could somehow acknowledge his birthday when he arrived. The lady on the phone assured me that she would personally make sure he was greeted on his birthday. They not only wished him a happy birthday when he arrived, but gave him a drink voucher to use later that night. When he got to his room, there was a bucket of beers with a birthday sign, some balloons and a tray of truffles. Our son said the room was very comfortable, clean and the staff was so friendly. He would highly recommend this hotel, as would I!
Great hotel, very friendly staff. I just wish one could turn down the air conditioning down as the room was far too hot to be able to sleep well despite it being on the lowest setting. Valet parking was efficient but a little pricey. Construction going on outside the hotel and will be going on for sometime.
Stayed here for two nights with wife and daughters on a mini break in Toulouse. Decent price and 5 star rating were attractions.
We were celebrating my wife's birthday and the hotel made a fuss and left a card and some chocolates for her.
Breakfast was a highlight - not cheap but a very comprehensive buffet spread. Location was fine for us. It's slightly out of the main city centre nearer the railway station and a 10/15 min stroll to what we regarded as the main city centre. At the moment it is surrounded by roadworks. Apparently they are going to convert the whole road into a version of Barcelona's Ramblas which should be great. Don't let the roadworks put you off though as the sound- proofing is excellent.
The main plus is the staff and especially Julie and the other lady receptionist (who is off to the USA on holiday soon) who were excellent - friendly and efficient.
The only reason I haven't given five stars is the lack of a swimming pool which would have been welcomed in the heat and sort of expected in a 5* hotel. Would definitely return.
We enjoyed our visit to Toulouse and our stay in the hotel. There is construction in front of the hotel. The restaurant in the hotel is very nice. The staff was extremely helpful with the check in and area recommendations.
The photos online somehow give the impression of very modern and vibrant......to be honest, it was a little bland and uninspiring. The rooms were clean and a reasonable size but the décor was all a little grey.
My one complaint about this hotel was that I handed the hire car in spotless and it came back with dents. Of course they claimed it was nothing to do with them. Whilst the people on the front desk did their best to help, the manager was rude and dismissive and thoroughly unpleasant......the worst sort of customer interaction
