We chose the Best Western Royal St Jean hotel because it has lower rates than city centre hotels but the centre is easily accessible by tram which takes less than 10 minutes and costs just 1.5 Euros. The brochures also promised "spacious" rooms featuring an iPod docking system, a Nespresso coffee machine, a mini bar, flat screen TV etc.. The... More

We were greeted by Natalia who made us most welcome. She is a true gem. The location near the station suited us. It is ten minutes walk from the old centre. There are plenty of restaurants nearby. There was an excellent breakfast included in our tariff. Newspapers to read are available. The room 311 was a good size and very... More

What a lovely location for a couple of overnights in Bordeaux, 3 minute walk from the train station and a twenty minute walk to the centre or just a 2 minute ride on the tram which cost a € 1.50 to go downtown. Room was very clean and tidy nice little touch like the coffee machine, and the helpful staff... More

Stayed at the Royal St. Jean for 3 nights and have to say It is refreshing to find a customer focused hotel on this category. Although it's sold as 3 star accomodation the hotel is full of wonderful little details that many of those self called boutique hotels should take notice of. Wonderful front desk staff always welcomed me with... More

A brilliantly located hotel, especially if you are arriving or leaving by train. Clean, friendly and a very warm welcome. Excellent value for money. I would highly recommend this hotel for a short stay.

Nice clean hotel in a great location next to the main railway station. Room on the small size but only there for one night so it was okay. Liked the coffee maker and the docking station. Excellent breakfast and very helpful and friendly staff. Will use the hotel again on future trips.

I was (we were) pleasantly surprised with this great little gem in Bordeaux near/across Bordeaux's Central Station. Apparantly, the hotel had been renovated/redecorated (the reception/breakfast area and more) and gave it a trendy but warm look. Very inviting to have a relaxing breakfast. And what a breakfast it was: pure joy to wake up and go downstairs to start the... More
