The location was very good, service very good, enjoyed the cheese and wine, was disappointed in parking or lack of. We were told the local car park would cost ust 10 euros a night but we were charged 28 euros which was expensive as we are pensioners. I think it would have been cheaper to park on the street if...

Decent hotel but great location. Nothing to shout about, clean functional rooms in the heart of Bordeaux. About 5mins cab ride from train station. 2 mins walk to lots of restaurants and some shops. Bistro bar just next door.

This hotel is very nice and in a GREAT location. It is near the city center, tram stops, the church, shopping, etc. LOTS of restaurants near by and a Carefour near by for inexpensive water and groceries. It does have lots of street noise due to its location. People are out until 2-3am on the street and trash/delivery trucks around...

Reviewed 8 February 2017

Situated right in the centre of town its ideal for walking/tram around the main part of town and the local restaurants. Rooms were basic but clean and well equipped and the price was very good for the location. The cheese and wine between 6 pm and 8 pm was a lovely idea.

It is within a few minutes walk of the cathedral and other sights, right next to shopping streets and Carrefour and there is a wide choice of restaurants all around. In addition it is only a five minute walk to the number 1 bus which...
