Toulouse - Hôtel Le Père Léon

Atmospheric Toulouse institution with luggage room for bikes

2 Place Esquirol

Haute-Garonne, Midi-Pyrénées

View map

Price from: €75

Open: All year

Originally founded in 1905 as a wine bar by the grandfather of the current owners, the Hôtel Le Père Léon is a stylish 3-star city hotel in the city centre (the Esquirol Metro station is out the front). A brasserie still operates inside the hotel where the wine bar was first established, and this is complemented by a fully refurbished hotel. (The brasseries's wine racks – chock-full of hundreds of bottles – were protected throughout the refurbishment to preserve their coat of dust). This is a good base for exploring Toulouse – it's a quick ride to the river Garonne and to the point at which the Canal de Garonne becomes the Canal du Midi, plus it's handy for the city's museums and the basilica. Free wifi. Buffet breakfast. Singles, doubles, twins and triples. Luggage store for upto 3 bikes.

Toulouse - Privilège Hôtel Mermoz

Art deco hotel in the centre of town with room for tandems

50 Rue Matabiau
31000 Toulouse
Haute-Garonne, Midi-Pyrenees (Occitanie)

View map

Price from: €90

Open: All year

The Privilège Hôtel Mermoz in the so-called pink city of Toulouse was recommended to us by tandem riders who stayed there, so there is plenty of space for cyclists and their equipment. It's about half a kilometre from the Matabiau train station, the city's main terminal, but still manages to incorporate an outdoor pool. Rooms are soundproofed and come with a coffee machine, a handy extra. There is also a decent – if slighly expensive – breakfast served every day, or you can just pop out for a croissant or to the supermarket.

Bike facilities

  • Secure bike parking
  • Bike hire on site or available locally
  • Local maps and route information
  • Laundry facilities
  • Wifi
