Hotel Mercure St. Georges, re saint Jermone, Toulouse

Mid-range, comfortable, but characterless, modern business hotel well-positioned near the heart of Toulouse. It occupies a utilitarian building containing utilitarian, air-conditioned rooms with large, comfy double beds. The extensive buffet breakfast (14 euros for adults and free for children) includes nicely-cooked scrambled egg and sausages, plus a wide choice of cheeses, cold meats and other standard continental fare. Many of the guests appear to be knackered middle managers in crumpled suits, but four-room apartments with a kitchenette are available for families at 170 Euros a night. The public car park below the hotel costs about 15 Euros a day. Service is businesslike. 6/10
