Central access to the heart of Bordeaux right off the main thoroughfare making for a pleasant stay. Amazing shopping & dining surround this property. Museums, parks and landmarks are all within walking distance. Friendly staff. Small but charming room. We were on the top floor, no elevator but stairs are good for your health! Room came with a fan (which... More

Good choice for a accomodation in Bordeaux.Estabelecimento very well located with cafes, markets, boutiques nearby. Environment clean, organized and great service. And a possible return to the city is the hotel you will choose again.

This hotel is in the pedestrian shopping district of central Bordeaux. The most prestigious brands are available right around the corner. The rooms are small; I sat crosswise on the toilet to make room for my knees. The stairs are steep, and the beds are very comfortable, not the usual French hard mattresses. good value.

This Hotel de France is great. The owners are incredibly friendly and helpful. They found me an extension cord when I asked, recommended excellent restaurants, and were always ready to chat if the guests wanted to. The hotel is one block from the bus we took from the airport and is centrally located - great for shopping, the opera house,... More

We enjoyed the benefits of being in a large room, with free of charge cot, for our 20 month old. The location was so central that we found interesting things to see within a few minutes walk. The central location means that there is noise at night, from people and midnight rubbish collections. However we used ear plugs and our... More

We stayed here for two nights (October 2013). Saturday was very noisy as a flat opposite decided to have a karaoke party - until 3 in the morning, so little sleep. Sunday was much quieter though. The hotel itself was small with rooms to match but as we stayed only 2 nights this wasn't a problem. Good size shower but... More

Stayed 3 nights in this small but good value central hotel (77 euro per double room per night). Rooms are very small so recommend a double even if just for one. WiFi available and breakfast which is very adequate and fresh can be brought to your room for no extra charge. Desk staff very nice and helpful - but note... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. It is a 2 star hotel so don't expect big rooms, lifts or other conveniences. It is very centrally located and also close enough to airport bus. It is close to shops, cafes and restaurants. It is spotlessly clean and we found the room big enough for a 2 night stay. Bathroom... More

The hotel is on a quiet side street in the middle of Bordeaux, literally 3 minutes from the main shopping street, the cathedral, and the Grand Théâtre. The room was comfortable, clean, and really cozy and had everything you need for a short stay, including a quite large bathroom (but maybe I've been in Stockholm for too long...). The free... More

We stayed two nights at the hotel de france in Bordeaux, and found it clean and pleasant. Friendly staff, but limited English, very clean and fast free wifi. It is central and by a theatre so street noise I'd to be expected. The rooms are small, but you are in Central Bordeaux, there is no lift, again normal for Bordeaux,... More
