    Location of the hotel was very good,room was very clean and spacious, the room also was very quiet, The beds were very comfortable and the air condition in our room was very good and quiet.

    There were a few small complaints, size of the toilet cubicle was very small if you were a large person you could have a problem,also because I am an eldery person I found a problem when haveing a shower because there were no handrails

    Location is fantastic. Right in the heart of Bordeaux. Shops, cafes, restaurants etc etc literally at your doorstep. Tramstop nearby. Excellent bathroom and hotel facilities. Nice breakfast. We would highly recommend this hotel and we would stay there again.

    There was nothing we did not like.

    Very good

    Great location and will be back, as it was a flying visit.

    I perceived that as we were in bike leathers the reception staff thought we were in the wrong hotel. The problem was that they had the wrong booking dates for us, and it was fortunate that I had the booking form with me. They did find us a room, but after a 7 hour bike ride I did not relish the thought of trying to find a room for the night n Bordeaux.

    The breakfast was nice, had a great coffee/cappuccino machine...the location was great...about a 5 minute walk to the Theater. (Would recommend the hotel based only on the fact that it had a central location, even though it is overpriced)

    When we went the hotel was undergoing reformations, so it wasn't like in the pictures. We had a triple room and it was very small, hardly any space to move around and a little claustrophobic. A little overpriced for what it is..

    Very good

    The location was good (close to main sightseeins and shopping). Breakfast was also quite ok, although i do not request that much. There were three of us (a couple and a child) and the hotel room accomodated an extra bed quite well.

    The access to the hotel was a bit confusing. I would recommend but with restrictions due to the access.

    Superb

    The hotel was very well located in the "golden triangle" of the city. Rooms were small, but very well designed. Breakfast unusual rich for France. The atmosphere of the hotel was very pleasant - especially the paintings in the lobby and in rooms.

    good location and grand entrance, but a bit disappointed in the room, which was in need of refurbishment.

    Superb

    Lovely reception area finshed to a high standard. Very accommodating staff, we upgraded our room to a superior room but paid less for it. Great breakfast.

    I think the bathrooms need some work to improve the standard fo the finish. There were some cracks and dirt around the bath, floors, basins, toilets. The comfort rooms are too expensive for the quality of the room. We moved to a superior room. Internet access should be free but for a restricted time for each session.

    The breakfast was not good at all- very disappointing
