As one of France’s premier business destinations, there’s plenty of accommodation on offer in Toulouse, but a lot of it is aimed at the upmarket, business traveller rather than the budget-conscious football fan.
Most of the hotels are located on the ‘right bank’ of the Garonne - between the river and the Canal du Midi which skirts the edge of the old town and the touristic centre to the north and east. There are cheaper options ‘over the water’, as well as beyond the bounds of the canal, and with the city’s comprehensive public transport infrastructure it may be possible to find the odd bargain on the outskirts that’s well connected by metro or tram if you’re prepared to do a little travelling either way.
The Toulouse Tourist Office offers an online booking portal where you can pre-book your accommodation, offering a range of options from top-end hotels to campsites around the region, holiday lets and places in one of the city’s 3 youth hostels - for details, see http://www.toulouse-visit.com/
Uefa also has an official accommodation partner - HomeAway (www.homeaway.co.uk/euro2016/) which works on a similar basis to Airbnb, offering flats, apartments and houses in and around host cities. Their search function splits properties between each host city, making it easy to use.
