Stayed in 406 on the top floor (luckily they have a small lift!) at the front over the Rue de Temple with a 'view' over the rooftops of Bordeaux. Room adequately sized although wardrobe a little small, bathroom met our needs and a nice rainforrest shower. Air conditioning was a plus. Bed comfortable, wi-fi a bonus and hot and cold...

We had to change our booking after being let down by ATC strike and when we rebooked our original choice was fully booked but this hotel was suggested instead. What a good suggestion it was. It is right slap bang in the middle of Bordeaux and up a side street which was nice and quiet. When we first went up...

I stayed here in May 2016 and plan to return there again in 3 weeks. The front desk staff is wonderfully helpful and speak fluent English. Their restaurant recommendations were spot on -- we still talk about the memorable places they referred us for dinner. Quiet, reasonably priced, their buffet breakfast was included in the price... nothing like fresh squeezed...

Booked at the last minute. We were very pleased with the hotel accommodation. The reception were very welcoming. The rooms are well appointed (not lavish) the location is the key. Take time to read the confirmation email if it arrives in time and you will save 30 minutes trying to find parking on the street and go to the large...

A no frills 3 star hotel. Nicely and recently decorated and very clean. Apart from a few seats and the breakfast area, no common use spaces. The breakfast was fine, if not great. Very little hot food - just scrambled egg and some not very appetising sausages. Mainly cheese, cold meat, bread, cakes, jams and cereal. Freshly pressed orange juice...

We had two room for five nights at this hotel, and it was ideal for a short Autumn break in Bordeaux. The hotel is perfectly situated in the old part of the city, close to two main streets, but on a pedestrianised side street. There is a tram route nearby, and the river bank is a short walk away, as...

mid-range hotel, simple decor but entrance and main reception area classy. Very varied and delicious breakfast buffet with locally sourced products. A fresh orange juice press is great. but the details of food layout even more impressive.Quiet location despite being in city centre

To be fair we'll start with positives: 👍PROS: LOCATION: As other reviews noted - in middle of the beautiful Old Town. A tram stop is right nearby (fantastic tram system here) + there's a few supermarkets nearby & other great shopping although of course, brand name/expensive around Old Town. Only a few blocks to more affordable shopping + malls with...

Unfortunately we only had one night here but the hotel is excellent. From the entry into the lobby, small but elegant, to wonderful front desk staff the experience begins with warmth. The initial entry to the rooms is a little disappointing as the furnishings could be considered very basic. But then the bed and bedding are excellent quality and the...

This hotel is down a side street but in the middle of everything. You can walk everywhere in the city. The employees are wonderful - very helpful, very friendly. The room was very clean, well appointed and a decent size.... with air conditioning. Breakfast had many options and was a typical European breakfast. We left our coats hanging in the...
