Toulouse – Where to stay ~ Hotel Albert 1er

Are you off to Toulouse and are looking for somewhere; quite, vibrant but pretty central? Well I have just the hotel for you, allow me to introduce Hotel Albert 1er, a three star hotel. It is located right in the heart of Toulouse, only a 100m from Le Capitole with very friendly staff. Did you know that Hotel Albert 1er is the first European certified Eco labelled hotel? I didn’t know either but how cool is that, we all want to do our bit for the planet.

Another thing I didn’t know was the fact that the hotel is a family run business, independent and traditional. At the core of the smooth running of the hotel is its incredible staff who are forever helpful. What took me by surprise was the welcome basket we got for each room, totally unexpected but welcomed. Another thing was the beautiful booklet sharing the ‘off the beaten tracks’ guide they have created for their guests. It has all the useful tips, must-see sights, different types of tours available in the city and transport options.

Where to stay in Toulouse ~ Hotel Albert 1er

We had an early start to our day, our flight was 7 in the morning with a 10am arrival in Toulouse. The hotel is approximately 12 miles away from the airport which isn’t too far. There are several transport options one can use; bus, train/train or taxis. We chose bus then due to my parents tiredness I added Taxis so we could arrive quicker.

Upon arrival at the hotel we were amazed at how quite the area was, the entrance is so calm and inviting. What hit me the moment I walked into the hotel was the decor of the hotel, it is so zen. I could feel the tiredness just wash off me, the staff were welcoming and we quickly checked in. Within a few minutes we were up to our rooms; I was in a classic style room. My parents were allocated the comfort room which comes with more features; coffee machine and small Fridge.

Home away from Home

Our program for the day was jam-packed and we wanted to get much done as we possible could. As I wasn’t hungry I ordered room service for my parents who were impressed by the food quality. The food was filling and very delicious, Hotel Albert 1er prides itself in using local produce. After a quick rest and refueling, we went off to met our guide for the day, Elena. I was happy Elena took her time explaining things to my parents and didn’t rush, she was very informative.

 

Yesterday was such a jam packed day for us, I am always happy to explore new places and Toulouse is an incredible one to visit. After such a busy day, this bed was my home away from home and I had such an incredible night’s sleep. I woke up feeling refreshed but still want to stay longer and enjoy it longer.⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ @hotelalbert1er is not only beautiful and nicely decorated but is so inviting, I am in love.

Isn’t this bed just so inviting??

A few later and out of the cold we were back at the hotel which was super warm and comforting. What you need after a long day it a nice comfortable bed to take away all the world’s worries. But before that could happen, a nice shower is required. I am a sucker for a good shower and Hotel Albert 1er definitely delivered and ticked all the boxes. I appreciated the really clean bathroom, very nicely lit and well ventilated. All the rooms are very clean, well maintained and the hotel has 47 comfortable rooms.

    I have never been to France and have always wanted to go. I like that it looks like they have lots of bursts of color throughout the hotel.

    I’m so sad that I live so far away and will most likely not get the chance to visit. Hotel Albert 1er looks like a great place to relax.

    I like that the breakfast is served all the way until 11am. Someplaces end at like 9 or 10, which I think is too early. Looks like a wonderful hotel stay.

    it sounds like this was a really good hotel base to stay in while you are in Toulouse I can’t believe they offer breakfast from 5 – 11 that is fantastic!

    Looks like a beautiful hotel. Love that it’s family owned and conveniently located to restaurants and activities. Those make travel so much easier.

    I love staying at hotels especially the ones that are very clean. Good food is also on my list of must haves. It sounds like you were able to find both at this hotel!

    I honestly love hotels that give you that comfy and cozy vibe the moment you walk into the room. This look just like it. I also appreciate the location! Makes the trip easier once you go out to tour and explore!
