This hotel is let down by the over rated roof top bar, uncomfortable and certainly struggles with cocktails, (more training needed) drinks are served in plastic mugs/glasses, which does not encourage staying or returning for the second drink, and no beer available in this bar WHY??. Reception speedy and welcoming, luggage and car parking taken care of with out fuss,... More

This is a very nice boutique-style hotel situated at the heart of Bordeaux on the doorstep of the main attractions and restaurants and within the pedestrianised shopping area. It is housed in a classic building along a narrow side street. My wife and I stayed here several years ago and since our first visit the bedrooms have been beautifully refurbished... More

We booked this hotel for a weekend trip. The front desk staff was very friendly and spoke very good English. The bed was great, for some probably too hard, but we had a great night, also due to the quiet corner in the city and also since the air con did work very quiet. Breakfast had a good selection, fresh... More

My husband and I recently spent 3 nights here. The central location is great for exploring old town Bordeaux, shopping, museums and restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms clean but small. Unfortunately the beds are rock hard…like sleeping on concrete. We slept poorly and work up sore and stiff each morning. Because of this we would... More

We stayed in this hotel the first night in Bordeaux, then we went on a driving tour of the region, and we stayed in this hotel again on our last night in Bordeaux, and both nights were perfectly delightful - the rooms are very modern and very clean, and the public spaces are very nice and crisp. Our room on... More

Lovely old building with great classical decor on the ground floor. Very centrally located for lots of sightseeing around Bordeaux on foot. We had read that rooms were small but we had a room that was spacious with two sets of french doors onto juliet balcony looking onto the street. It can be a little noisy with street noise as... More

We loved this charming little hotel. It is in the center of the city, easy walking to all the sites. The staff were very helpful with directions and suggestions of what to see. The room was spotless and quiet and the breakfast which was included was very good.

Atentive staff! WiFi wasn´t working, which was a burden. Rooms are a small but recently rebuilt. Very well located in the old part of town, closed for cars. The street is very calm. The lobby is decadent with furniture needing new upholstery, probably since long!
