This review is a year overdue so hopefully I can remember it all. The Grand Hotel is ideally situated in the posher end of Bordeaux and in a quaint old building near some great restaurants and bars. It's well kept and clean. I can't remember the room type but it wasn't the smallest or cheapest. It had a small balcony... More

A nice hotel which i would rate more as a good three star rather than a four star but full of character and enjoying a great location right in the centre of the city near to the cathedral. Stylish foyer and lounge area decorated in faux Louis IV style.

Stayed recently for 3 nights to enjoy a long weekend in Bordeaux. The hotel is very central to all the shops, restaurants, trams etc and is only a short walk from all of the sights. We had one of the larger rooms at the front of the hotel which was great apart from the last night (a Monday) when a... More

Stayed here pre and post tour of France. Very happy with the hotel although our first room was much better - it was one of the bigger rooms and a little more expensive. I would pay the extra money for this room. The hotel was in the middle of Bordeaux so you could walk everywhere. Trams really close too. We... More

We booked this hotel the week before we arrived only on the basis of TripAdvisor reviews and we were delighted with the central location. The entrance is pretty and has a quaint elegance. The welcome was warm and the staff were really helpful throughout. We loved the location, the cleanliness and the quietness. The room was small and simple, not... More

Hotel is situated directly in the centre of Bordeaux. Service at reception and at breakfast was really good. Presentation of food was complicated because of lack of free space. Cleaning of rooms should be on higher level at this type of hotel. Rooms at all are quite small. Connection to free wi-fi is little bit more complicated (special registration is... More

This a small boutique style hotel in a perfect location for enjoying the beauty of Bordeaux. The hotel has a small number of rooms but both we and our six friends were very happy with the accommodation. The cleanliness of the hotel is superb in all areas. A lovely Buffet Breakfast is served each morning with a good variety to... More

Hotel is close to Gambetta tram stop, 5 minute walk from river and close to shops. Staff very helpful, efficient and caring. Rooms small, but bright, nicely furnished and clean. Breakfast plentiful. Stayed here very happily for a week.
