I really like this hotel a lot. It's clean, simple and like staying with friends. The staff are warm and helpful. And it's such a good location... A short walk to a fabulous light rail or bus system that goes everywhere. I would definitely stay here again and I recommend it with confidence.

Travelling back from Spain needed to break the trip and Bordeaux seemed sensible after agonizing on the motorway where to stay. Quick google at 9 o'clock at night, booked it online, really good value but turned up while things were a bit lively in and around the station. One of us popped in to find out where the parking was... More

We stayed here after a long train ride from Frankfurt through Paris. We were tired. The hotel is across the road from the train station which made it convenient. It is basic but clean. The internet worked well. There is no elevator and the stairwell is a challenge if you have bulky or heavy luggage. We had dinner at the... More

This was a last minute booking but we were pleasantly surprised. The staff were very friendly and always there if and when needed, 24 hours! The room, bathroom inclusive, were clean, with a moulin rouge theme, befitting for a girls trip! We didn't have our meals at the Hotel but it was the perfect location to everywhere and everything!

My wife & I had traveled all night from NYC to Paris. When we got to CDG, we had a 3+ hour layover before our train left for Bordeaux. The trip to Bordeaux itself was another 4 hours. So, by the time we got to Bordeaux, we were EXHAUSTED! When we popped up out of the train station, we were... More

The hotel is situated close to the Gare St. Jean which makes finding it an easy task if you take the right exit. However, this also makes it situated in the sketchy area of town. It is a bit far from the centre but definitely at a walkable if you don't mind walking for long periods (I didn't use any... More

I stayed at the Hotel California for 3 nights from August 11 to 14, 2013. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is absolutely the most helpful I have had at any hotel ever. Their friendliness is so obvious. They helped me to plan excursions around the city and up to the beach at Montalivet for a day. The... More

Friendly staff, clean, nice room close to main train station/tram stop and waterfront. We didn't pay for breakfast but it looked decent, too. Tourist office is right across the road, and the hotel also has a panini shop attached to it.

My boyfriend and I stayed here recently and we really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean, the staff absolutely wonderful, and the breakfast is unbelievable and definitely worth 8 euros! My only complaints were that while the hotel was close to the train station, our room faced onto the street and there were loads of people yelling all night,... More
