We were lucky to receive the "Early Web Special" by booking through their website, which made it very affordable for our one night stay. The service at this hotel is of a very high quality and we very much enjoyed our stay in this elegant little hotel. We are fans of 18-century architecture and this building has been beautifully renovated.... More

Spent two nights here - would recommend the Comfort room. Lovely breakfast choice, room comfortable and very fresh. Central prime location with good restaurants in the area. Near main attractions plus quality shops.

Wonderful family holiday in this charming hotel. Great location, easy walk to restaurants and places of interest. The staff were very helpful. Rooms spacious and clean. Breakfast included in our room rate was fanstatic. We didn't have a car, so caught the No1 bus from the airport and back again. We even went to the beach for the day, catching... More

Great spot for exploring Bordeaux. Breakfast was average and rooms a little on the snug side - but was clean, fairly quiet, and well kept, great admin support and nice sitting area downstairs. Was able to leave luggage when arriving and exiting at times that varied from check in and check out. 24 hours service on the desk was good... More

The hotel is ideally situated, in a quiet, narrow street within short strolls from Bordeaux's historic sites, shops, cafes and trams. The hotel is charming, clean and well-kept. Staff all very pleasant and helpful. Breakfasts good, in a charming dining area. We had room 103 on the first floor overlooking the street, a perfect choice. It was spacious and charmingly... More

The service is excellent and everybody will do their best to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The street and the hotel are very quiet. The breakfast include lots of temptations ! Do not hesitate to book the most expensive rooms if you like some space. Be aware toilets are not separated from the shower.

The hotel is in a fantastic location and this combined with the tram system makes everything accessible. The staff are helpful and welcoming and nothing seems too much trouble. Rooms are spotlessly clean and really comfortable. Delicious breakfast, with a good choice alongside coffee and fresh orange juice. If I returned to Bordeaux I would definitely stay here again .

Some reviewers have commented that the rooms are small. We must have been lucky with ours as it was a decent size and had a balcony. Good choice of breakfast and freshly squeezed orange juice. We took the advice of previous reviewers and caught the line 1 bus from the airport to Gambetta which is a short walk away. Hotel... More

This hotel does everything a good Best Western should. It is immaculately clean, staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are a good size, with air con and tea/coffee making facilities. The breakfast is a continental buffet style but is well stocked and all the food is good quality. The hotel is in an excellent location and convenient for both... More

I highly recommend this hotel. The staff was welcoming and consistently very helpful. The room was spacious and clean. And the location was perfect: very centrally located in the center of Bordeaux. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Breakfast was a real treat. The breakfast room was elegant yet still very relaxing, with its white table... More
