Fabrice runs a wonderful boutique in a charming part of Bordeaux. The room was very stylishly decorated and it has the feel of an old world boarding house. lovely host and great location. we would definitely return. Very close to a tram stop.

We spent a couple of nights in this beautiful, fully restored merchant house which serves as a great boutique hotel. As it was a few days before xmas the place was quiet so Fabrice (the owner) upgraded us to one of his suites which was fabulous. Fabrice provides the personal touch, lovely breakfast, great service and very knowledgeable about Bordeaux... More

We had a junior suite on the second floor, great room, spacious with facilities for basic catering (including a dishwasher !). Fabrice is a very nice host that makes you feel welcome and is more than happy to give advice about the city. Great breakfast, if they have it, try the home-made fig jam. Close to the tram station at... More

Special place, ancient dwelling completely restaured. Location is ok but not ideal, street is deserted with a sexy shop nearby. Room was special, very small, probably perfect for a small queen size bed, ancient furniture and spectacular wooden floor. The only window, though huge, is giving on the inner roofed courtyard so no fresh air and no direct light. Bathroom... More

We discovered this place on the web and were intrigued so decided to spend our two nights in Bordeaux there. It is a small B&B, but set up inside more like a regular hotel. The welcome from the owner, Fabrice was extraordinarily warm. Our room was small (like most French hotel rooms), although some are bigger, but comfortable and tastefully... More

Fabrice was an excellent host - helped us out in many ways, including recommending a very good restaurant. Lovely restored building, nicely decorated room. Highly recommend it. It was like a home away from home.

Pick this B&B based upon other reviewers' comments and we were not disappointed. Tuck away from the main street, but in easy walking distance of the main locations, our room was beautiful, bed very comfortable and very where very clean. Breakfast simple but good and Fabrice is a very attentive host.

We had such a great stay in Bordeaux and only wish we could have stayed for a few more nights. But we certainly packed in a lot while we were there and this was helped along by the owner Fabrice who gave us lots of good local tips and information and was exceedingly helpful. He was very friendly and approachable... More
