Great location and friendly and helpful staff. We luckily had a room at the top floor (elevator does not go all the way up), so the view was great. However the room was very small and had a dirty stained carpet that you did not feel like walking on barefooted or even have you luggage on. The price was insane... More

My room on the 1st floor had a window opening to a roof covered with cigarette butts. The carpet was so stained that I did not dare walk on it bare foot. The bathroom was so incredibly small. You had to push extremely hard to open the door and the ceiling fan switch was broken. I do not even comment... More

For the money , hard to beat - Clean, simple, friendly and great location. Room and bathroom were small, but for a downtown one night hotel, it was perfect. Lift was one floor up and other stairs, so not for some who have a hard time with stairs ( as we witnessed ). But for others no problem. We will... More

Hotel Gambetta was the perfect place for us - quiet, clean and located so close to most everything in Old Bordeaux. We are avid walkers/wanderers who don't spend a lot of time in hotel rooms during our visits, so the smaller rooms of HG did not put us off in any way. Ours was clean and quiet and bright with...

Good position and quite room at the same time. Good quality of the room with bathroom and good quality of sleeping. We didn't take breakfast. 24h reception is really helpful. Eleveitor doesn't serve all levels.

Loved the location and breakfast here. The staff was helpful and friendly as well. The room was small for the price and very loud at night do to the people walking down below. I was also very itchy during the night do to the bed. Not sure why...

Absolutely loved Bordeaux and the hotel couldn't have been better located, great for the trams, the historical centre and all the shops, restaurants and cafe's. The hotel had all the basic amenities you need and the rooms were OK for the price.

The Hotel Gambetta is located in a very busy pedestrian street and at one minute from the tramway. This fantastic location might be a problem if you need a hotel just to sleep: crowds of happy people laughing and shouting by night stroll around and easily wake you up at midnight and even later. My room was clean, very simple... More

This is my second time at Gambetta. The reason why choosing it again is its marvelous location. It's in the very heart of Centre Ville, near the main attractions and the key transportation modalities (tram to nearby locations, bus to airport). The hotel itself is ok: very basic, not that cheap, but clean. The lift is a funny think. As... More
