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

Great location, helpful staff and clean. I was on third floor facing the little courtyard and didn't have any problem with noise. It is a great base to stay, used the trams to get to the centre and the trains to visit further afield. Had an enjoyable stay.

The hotel is closed to the train station, so I suggest it to everyone coming by train and needing a room for a night. No car park. The center is about 3 km away, but the tramway is very useful and it is very very easy to reach place da la Bourse in 5 minutes. The nearby zone is not... More

While this hotel is convenient (across from the train station), the staff and rooms adequate, it is impossible to get any sleep while staying there. Drunken homeless people hang out at the train station and yell, argue, etc. all night. At 7 AM construction street construction begins. I was on the 2nd floor and it was not only noisy, but... More
