Do not be put off by the strange decor, this is a great budget hotel. Had a problem on arrival, the room I was given hadn't been cleaned. The friendly owner immediately gave me another with profuse apologies. This one was spotlessly clean. The room was smallish but adequate, and the bed very comfortable. It was also very quiet, despite... More

Travelers beware, the price may seem good, but it's not worth it for getting no sleep at all. The room and the bathroom was very clean. They also a offer a free shuttle service to the airport although there's a key drop-box at the Bordeaux airport, so you really don't need a ride if you rented a car. The lobby/dining... More

Positives; friendly receptionist when we arrived. Nice simple breakfast. Clean. Just weird; the whole hotel is filled with toys. EVERYWHERE!! On shelves and all over the floor. Problem is, nobody is allowed to touch the toys! And we had two small children with us. Our kids OF COURSE wanted to play with the toys! There was Lego all over the... More

This is more of a problem with the reservation , but certainly includes the hotel. Our trip over was a disaster from the start causing us to miss flights and delayed connections. Our first night after flying all day and night resulted in our missing the flight from EWR to BOD (Bordeaux). We finally arrived in Newark, NJ at midnight... More

Cheap hotel, decent room, with all the amenities such a room has (but I had an empty soap dispenser). Breakfast is very basic. I would not pay extra for it. I would have something in the airport. The hotel has a shuttle to the airport. The big dog that wanders in the dining room area might not be to every... More

If you're late to entry even after notify you'll never get in. Don't have a reception 24 hours and It´s closed after 10. Only ungry dog will meet you. But after they'll charge you anyway like as you haven't come at all.

We stayed there as a n in-between stop so we didn't expect much! We were pleasantly surprised because it was very clean indeed, with happy staff, very close to the airport. If you want for 1 night it's the best you can find. For more nights I wouldn't recommend it because the rooms are very small.
