Good news for fans of eco-responsible city breaks! Eklo, the young group of “eco, green and friendly” hotels, is extending its network and taking up residence in Toulouse. This brand new establishment, nestled in the heart of an architectural achievement that is as innovative as it is respectful of the environment, opened its doors on 13 June. On the menu: varied accommodation offer, living space open to the city, design and relaxed atmosphere, address ideally located in an eco-district...
And seven! After Le Havre, Le Mans, Lille, Bordeaux, Clermont-Ferrand and Marne-la-Vallée, the Eklo group is accelerating its development and inaugurating its Toulouse address, the first of the new urban locations planned by Eklo this year.
Eklo Toulouse is part of the development of the Cartoucherie eco-district. Supported by the town hall of the pink city, this 33-hectare district has been designed to become a new urban center on the left bank of the Garonne. Since its conception, the Cartoucherie eco-district has brought with it several technical innovations in the service of a real ambition: to reconcile density and sustainable development to offer residents an innovative, sustainable and participatory "living together".
The Eklo hotel occupies the first five floors of the Wood'Art tower: a wooden tower 76 meters high with award-winning architecture for its insulation and low energy consumption. Use of sustainable materials, better thermal and sound insulation, connection to district heating, reduction of waste production and water consumption during construction... so many arguments that won over the hotel chain, which is used to applying principles strict eco-responsibility rules for the design and operation of each of its establishments.
Located at the corner of the future Place des Halles and Avenue de Grande Bretagne, Eklo Toulouse is positioned as a real living space open to the district.
Eklo Toulouse offers 100 rooms divided into different categories. From the backpacker to the business traveler, from the family to the tribe, everyone will find suitable accommodation and very affordable prices. As a duo or solo? Eklo Toulouse innovates with new generation rooms with optimized space, without superfluity but always comfortable: soft duvet, private bathroom, separate WC, individual heating...
In the center of the hotel, large design and lifestyle common areas over 300 m² invite you to push the door and settle in. Far from the traditional hotel check-in counter, bar and reception are happily mixed together! On the design side, Eklo Toulouse uses the codes imagined for the group by the Janréji design studio: spaces structured by highly elaborate lighting, iconic pieces of furniture like the Chesterfield XXL, the solid wood table d'hôte, the pimped Bonzini football table or comfortably padded club chairs. Juxtaposition of raw and more refined materials to blend aesthetics and durability and create a perfect balance. Mix of warm colors and hyper graphic patterns for an inspired staging.
Without forgetting a decoration of the walls in a graph style created by the artist Rébecca Bourbigot!
