Novotel Toulouse Centre Wilson, France
by Benjamin Coren | October 2017
"The central location is convenient and with parking just 100-metres away it’s a good jumping-off point for the surrounding region, including the Pyrenees and other cities like Carcassonne. Rooms were comfortable and the staff were helpful and friendly throughout my stay."
THE BACKGROUND: This contemporary four-star hotel is located in a classic building comprised of the so-called ‘pink city’s’ characteristic terracottta stone.
THE LOCATION: In the picturesque heart of Toulouse beside Jardin Pierre Goudouli on Place Wilson. Place du Capitole is a two-minute walk and Saint Sernin Basilica about half a mile. It is close to the Jean-Jaures metro station and Toulouse Airport is around 20 minutes away by car.
THE ROOM: I stayed in a Superior room located on the top floor of the hotel. It was modern and comfortable, but did not benefit from much natural light due it being an attic room with a single roof window. The bedroom and bathroom were divided by a glass partition which had a mist function for privacy. The room had a queen-size bed and in-room amenities included free wifi, a minibar, rain shower, safe and a flat-screen TV. There was a large desk and chair, large wardrobe, plenty of power points and lots of storage space.
KEY FACILITIES: Leisure facilities include a fitness centre, suana, hammam and Jacuzzi. There is also a video games area and indoor playground for kids.
RESTAURANTS/BARS: The hotel has a lounge area in the reception with a modern and bright bar. Eating options include the traditional fare of La Brasserie Du Capoul and the Novotel Cafe by Capoul. The former features a terrace and guests can enjoy snacks and musical entertainment in the bar. A breakfast buffet is provided.
RATES: Nightly rates are available from €105.
