Pocket Guide: Two-Star Hotels in Toulouse
Toulouse is an absorbing city in the heart of the Midi-Pyrénées, and an excellent starting point for further explorations of the region. Its attractions range from the cultural, historical and architectural, to the cutting edge visions of the future laid out at its pioneering space museum, the Cite de l'Espace.
Hotels near the Transport Hubs of Toulouse
Toulouse is also a very accessible city, whether you’re arriving by plane, train or car – and once you’re here, an excellent public transport network makes light work of getting around. Rail travellers are exceptionally well-served by Expedia’s range of two-star hotels in Toulouse. Many are situated in the vicinity of the main railway station, Gare de Toulouse-Matabiau, which connects to the Metro and other regional and national lines, and lies just to the north west of the charismatic old town.
Just south of the station, tucked into the maze of streets between the Canal du Midi and the River Garonne, you’ll find an assortment of cheap and good-value accommodation choices. And while some of Toulouse’s two-star hotels belong to popular French budget chains such as B&B Hotels, those on offer here are mostly independent hotels, including several options housed in the elegant, pink-stone townhouses so typical of the La Ville Rose, the Pink City, Toulouse’s nickname.
There’s also a solid range of two-star hotels in the north west of Toulouse, which is good choice of location for those who need to be close to Toulouse-Blagnac Airport, Purpan Hospital, or the city’s famous National Veterinary School.
Stay in Toulouse to Explore the South West
After a few days in the Pink City, why not venture further afield? Direct trains run from Toulouse to most parts of France, but the south west itself is worth exploring in more detail. One of the most celebrated parts of the country, full of rolling, mystical landscapes, medieval bastide (fortified) towns, and contemporary man-made wonders like the Norman Foster-designed Millau Viaduct, it’s an obvious way to extend your stay in Toulouse.
