Cambridge, United Kingdom
Reviewed 25 June 2014

The hotel is value for money and location is excellent. The rooms are fairly basic and the breakfast was average. We stayed for two nights, the air conditioning in the room worked very well. The TV only had one English channel. The bathroom was a good size, shower no bath. Room was very small.

Ideal location for sightseeing, shopping and bus stop to and from airport two minutes away. Reception staff polite and helpful. Our impression of establishment would be better if a young lady who looked after breakfast room at least tried to move plates and cups from very small tables, too little space. We cleared the dishes away ourselves. In four days...

We enjoyed our four night stay at this great central hotel. An excellent base for visiting this interesting and vibrant city. Wonderful position close to Place Gambetta (No1 bus to the airport, a bargain at 1.40 euro) Good restaurants and bars close by. Very pleasant staff. Room clean and comfortable. Interesting old building. We suspect many old features were lost...

I strongly recommend this hotel. It is conveniently located in the centre of Bordeaux with plenty of restaurants, shops and even a supermarket close by. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

This hotel has one big advantage - location. Rooms are compact. No drawers in rooms - two answers when we asked for some.
