We stayed 3 nights and found this hotel to be clean, convenient for transport into the city and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room (216) was small but had everything we needed, including the electric kettle and coffee making facilities. We would choose to stay again, if we ever visit Bordeaux again. Wi Fi was only available... More

I spent only one night at Hotel California in beginning of October. It was recommended by my fellow contributers from TripAdvisor. Cheap and fine value for Money. In all it was a very good stay with nice well-equipped room and excellent breakfast. The only thing which should be improved is Wi-Fi in the rooms as soon as possible. I will... More

Hotel is handy to train station, right across the street. The room was clean, bed OK. But if you turned the sink water on beyond a little, the water flew out of the sink and onto your legs. There was no drain stopper in the sink. And the phone did not work, so I could not get a wake-up call.... More

Great! The hotel is located in one of the most busy area in town. The problem is that when you leave, you will have to hand your keys at the front desk that will hook it up on the wall behind him/her to show everybody that you are not in your room and they will leave to go clean up... More

We were spending one night in Bordeaux before heading back to Paris and wanted a place near the train station. We tried to get some information from the Tourist Office near the station but they were not very helpful (which seemed to be the case throughout the region), At any rate, we noticed this hotel and were lucky enough to...

I spent one night in Hotel California as a stop-over for train journeys which could not be completed in one day. The hotel's situation is super convenient for the Bordeaux main train station being opposite the main entrance. The staff are friendly and helpful, most speak English. The style of the hotel is very traditional (in the French tradition) being... More

We had to stay in Bordeaux 3 nights and booked in a hurry already 2 nights in another hotel. There we decided to check Trip Advisor and discovered this hotel. Near the railway station seemed noisy but we took the risk, based on some good comments. Those positive comments were 100% correct. The check-in was super friendly, we could leave... More

So easy to find - turn right as you leave Bordeaux St Jean railway station - walk along to end of railway buildings and it's on the other side of the road. Very nice friendly staff- room was in first floor, up an interesting old spiral staircase. First impressions - room smelt lovely! Very pink decor - I had a... More

We arrived very late and were helped to get our car parked and checked in by a very attentive desk clerk. The breakfast buffet was varied and plentiful. Our room was quiet, clean, attractive, and comfortable. A great budget find.

We prebooked one night at this hotel for easy access to an early train. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and offered a double room on the 2nd floor from the cheaper 3rd floor at no extra cost. We liked the slightly faded old style feel of the hotel and views over the busy life in front of the... More
