What a great choice. Myself and 4 friends on a cycling trip stayed on our first night. All staff were charming, wine and cheese on arrival, right in the middle of the city. One of my team left his passport behind and with voicemails and emails Tatiana chased us down so we could collect before we went home. A brilliant...

This is a reasonably priced hotel in the middle of the old town. It is a short stroll to the tram stop and 5 minutes from the main square and tourist office. The hotel reception was friendly and informative and the added bonus of free wine and cheese between 6 -8.00pm was a definite added bonus! There was a lack...

Don't be put off by its daft name - this is a good hotel centrally located with good facilities. The rooms are average size and not the "normal" tiny boxes found in many french city-centre hotels. Added bonus is a "happy hour" at 6pm with free wine and cheese. If driving, park in the underground car park at the pace...

Second stay here - first room we were offered was very dark and dingy - but reception were very helpful and moved us to a room that looked over the street with a small balcony - much nicer, but you may not like this if you're sensitive to noise. Stayed for four nights, great location, good breakfast, tea and coffee...

Easy to get to by #1 bus from the airport for just 1.5 euros. Get the bus right outside the airport to Place de Gambetta. You can pay on the bus. It is then a short 5min walk to the hotel. You'll pay 40-50 euros for a cab and overnight parking in the city is really expensive The rooms are...

Very French, rather quirky, loads of character. Perfectly comfortable. Staff were delightful, extremely helpful, friendly and efficient. The location of this hotel is second to none.... right in the centre of the old town, yet extremely quiet. No traffic noise at all. The breakfast was average, yet perfectly pleasant. Tea and coffee in room with kettle, which was a nice...

We parked under the "Grand Hommes" circular shopping arcade situated about 50 metres from the hotel and got the discounted special hotel rate, it cost 43 euros for 3 1/2 days. Our allocated room was on the 1st floor with windows looking inwards which would probably be quiet but also a bit dark and gloomy. As the bedside light wasn't...

This hotel is ideally located in the centre of Bordeaux with easy access to the centre of town and the trams / bus to the airport or surrounding area. Rooms are clean and bright, the building itself is older, so some renovation / redecorating could be done. The welcome aperitif each evening is a very nice touch! The staff are...

This is a three star hotel and is priced as such. I got exactly what I expected. Clean comfortable room with nice bed, hot shower and adequate breakfast. Free wine and cheese for pre dinner was a nice touch. Excellent location.
