Here are some suggestion :

Hotel du Taur:  Very well located, in the city center in walking distance from the University. You should have a rate of 82 euros + 5 euros breakfast. The best is to call at +33 (0)5 61 21 17 54 and mention the ENEF seminar hosted by the Université de Toulouse 1 Capitole the 10th and 11th September. Try to book quick because there are few rooms left.

Hotel de Brienne: The closest to the university.
You can email them at and mention the ENEF seminer hosted at Université de Toulouse 1 Capitole
