    The hotel is perfectly located. Close to the Cour de l'Intendance,very nice street in the historical center of the city. You don't need to take taxis or buses. The hotel is very "french"decorated and very quiet.

    The bathroom is very small and the bed is located in a bad way, very close to the bathroom's door making very difficult its access. Very old and not comfortable system for using the Wardrobe!!!!! Not for a room rated 167 euros

  • Older travelers

    Room is of adequate size, comfortable bed, modern design. VEry fine location in the pedestrian district of Bordeux center.

    Since the hotel charges for the first night in advance, if you are staying only one night be careful that you are not inadvertantly double charged for your stay That is whas happened to us 6/5/10.,.

    The staff of the hotel were very kind with smle. The location was great. It was a 20 meters behind main streets, so it was very quiet and convinient.

    I stayed there 8 days but the breakfast was completely the same everyday and there were not so many vrieties of food.

    Central position. Perfectly correct for the price. Staff friendly.

    Only criticism but not the hotel's fault - the parking. It would have been good to indicate which underground car park was the closest.

    Location was good, central to the city.

    Stayed twice, Sun 4th and Sat 11th July, both riooms were tiny. My bathroom at home was bigger than either room. There was no Airport Shuttle either and that was advertised, €35 each way taxi fare

  • Older travelers

    Bath was very small and the shower did not work. Also there were no spoons in our room when using the coffeee making facilities. Also the room we stayed in 104 was very noisy during the early evening and night.

    Breakfast wasn't great.

    Great location, nice casual clean hotel, our room was large with excellent shower and bath. Breakfasts great, wifi, couple of commual sittling lounges, newspapers and bilingual staff.

    Reception staff gave us wrong information a couple of times about basic things such as museum opening times. We extended our stay but this was not recorded properly.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Centrally located in the old part of Bordeaux close to shops, restaurants and bars. Hotel is in the "pedestrianised" part and our room at the back of the hotel was very quiet. Very friendly and helpful staff, fair amount of choice at breakfast, although at busy times some things were not available. The hotel did its best to keep up supplies and the waiting period was acceptable. Tram stops in the next street made travelling around a doddle.

    Breakfast was a bit manic as the serving area is quite small, but it was liveable with - just.

  • Older travelers
    8.0

    The location was great (very central) and the staff were excellent. Not impressed with "club room" on 4th floor - either its size or the alarming colour scheme (dark yellow wallpaper and red carpet). Plenty of choice for breakfast - freshly squeezed orange was great, vending machine coffee a disappointment.
