Hotel informations

All participants are housed in the 3* hotel ``Residhome Toulouse Occitania'' whom this adress is:

Residhome Toulouse Occitania
93 avenue de Lombez

Phone: +33 5 61 44 08 34
See it also on Google Maps

Be careful: the hotel reception closes at 8:00PM during the week-end (10:00PM otherwise) therefore if you plan to arrive later saturday or sunday evening, please call before the reception! Every participant is already checked in then you have to give your name to get the needed informations (access code to your room). Maybe a good idea is to first say that you are participating to a meeting organized by me (a.k.a. the ``Dintrans meeting'') such that the reception will immediately link.

Where is the meeting?

The meeting is in the conference room named ``Coriolis'' of the ``Observatoire Midi-Pyrénées'' (nickname: OMP) whom the adress is:

Observatoire Midi-Pyrénées
14, avenue Edouard Belin

How to get to OMP from the hotel?

In Toulouse we have two metro lines named A and B. The hotel is located just near the metro station ``Les arènes'' line A. Take it in the direction ``Balma-Gramont'' until the station ``Jean Jaurès'' where both lines A and B cross. Then take line B in the direction ``Ramonville'' and you have two possibilities:
  • you stop at ``Faculté de pharmacie''. Then you can board bus No 51 or 68 or shuttle No 108 then stop at ``LAAS'' and you walk until OMP. Or you can also walk from the metro station following WAY#1 or WAY#2 (see the map below, the WAY#2 being the coolest as you walk along the ``Canal du Midi'' and then enter on the OMP campus by a small green portal with stairs on your left; see e.g. this wikipedia link)
  • you stop at the terminus ``Ramonville'' and then walk until OMP by using WAY#3 along the ``Canal du Midi'' and the small green portal with stairs that will be now on your right.
