This post may be able to help you to prepare your trip with your dog by giving you some tips on how to organize and choose accommodation. So, I hope you will find the best hotel in Toulouse that will accept your dog so that you can spend a dream stay in Toulouse!
Toulouse with a dog – What criteria to select a good hotel with a dog?
More and more structures (hotels, campsites, apartments, palaces, unusual accommodations) now welcome dogs everywhere and also in Toulouse. Everyone calls themselves “pet friendly” or “dog friendly” but when you look more closely, you realize that nothing is planned for animals. Some offer tiny rooms, with no green space nearby… in short, many establishments are not at all suitable for dogs.
The important thing when you spend a holiday with a dog is to have enough space in the room or apartment. Then, it is important to ensure that the hotel has a small garden or that it is located next to a park, beach or green spaces. This way, your stay will be relaxed because you can take your doggie out easily and as many times as necessary….
These are the two priority criteria to mention in your search for apartments or hotels with a dog.
To help you choose among the ever-increasing offer, here is my selection of the best dog-friendly hotels in Toulouse: 1 hotel in Toulouse centre and 1 hotel in Toulouse Jolimont.
Best hotel accepting dogs in Toulouse centre
Here is the hotel I recommend among the best hotels in Toulouse with a dog: Novotel Toulouse Centre Compans Caffarelli
The main advantage of this superb hotel is its proximity to the magnificent Japanese Garden of Toulouse. Indeed, this park is located at the foot of the hotel which is rare and precious when you plan to stay in a hotel with a dog in Toulouse centre! Namely that inside the Japanese Garden is a Caniparc! So no worries about taking your dog out for his needs or for his walks.
Another advantage for walks with your dog: the hotel is only 350 m from the banks of the Canal du Midi!
Otherwise, the choice of this hotel also includes its swimming pool, its beautiful terrace, its large pool table, its well-equipped rooms… which make it a perfect hotel!
Its location in the heart of Toulouse, near the Compans-Caffarelli park, 5 minutes from the Metro and 10 minutes walk from the historic centre of Toulouse is very convenient for sightseeing without taking the car…
Apartment accepting dogs in Toulouse Jolimont
Here is the 2nd accommodation that I recommend among the cheapest hotels in Toulouse with a dog: Aparthotel Adagio Access Toulouse Jolimont
Very well located in the centre of Toulouse, only 10 metres from the metro station, Aparthotel Adagio Access Toulouse Jolimont offers apartments with air conditioning, free Wi-Fi connection and a swimming pool.
Close to the new Marengo district with its shopping, business and cultural centres, this hotel is 800 metres from Matabiau station and 20 minutes’ walk or 3 metro stations from Place du Capitole.
2 positive points for a stay with a dog:
- They are apartments so more comfortable than a hotel room for a stay with a dog;
- Its proximity to the observatory park where you can walk your dog or take him for his needs.
Toulouse with a dog – Steps and documents to be taken
Wherever you travel in France with your dog, he will of course need to have a microchip. In addition, his health record must be up to date with his vaccinations. So don’t forget to check all this before you leave… Of course, his health record should follow him wherever you go on holiday or on a road trip in France. You will also ensure that it has received good pest control protection.
And for those who will travel by plane with their dog, it will also be necessary to provide other procedures (documents, airline agreements…) and equipment (transport bag for small dogs or transport crate for large dogs who will travel in the hold). You will need to check the conditions of transport of your dog directly with the Company before booking your ticket.
