The location is great, just next to most of the attractions in Bordeaux and a few hundred meters to the restaurants and cafes, walkable to everywhere basically. The staff was amazing, I have never seen a quicker check in and check out process. Breakfast is better than many French hotels, there's scrambled eggs, cheese and ham.. and a great variety... More

We stayed one night en route to our destination near Sarlat having flown in from Bordeaux. Very good location, wonderfully quiet and although pretty basic, the room was spacious, clean and bed comfortable. Staff very helpful. Parking in the nearby shopping centre is much cheaper if you have evidence of your booking.

A well run hotel. Staff very efficient and helpful. Rooms are spotlessly clean. Although we upgraded to a comfort room the room was quite small. We asked for a walk in shower which was provided in a really compact bathroom, smallest I've seen. Nevertheless a good shower. Air conditioning worked well as did the coffee machine. A mirror over the... More

It is 4 years since I reviewed this hotel and this time it exceeded even my high expectations. We were in an even better room than before with clean, comfortable beds; loads of storage room and it was quiet despite being next to the lift. Everything worked as it should e.g. easy to operate safe, air-con. The bathroom was magnificent... More

This hotel is situated in a quiet side-street just off one of the up-market shopping areas in Bordeaux. Most of the streets in this area are pedestrianised which makes strolling around much easier - watch out for cyclists though! The reception area and breakfast rooms are very attractive but the room itself was rather dull and brown. We upgraded to... More

Located smack in the centre of Bordeaux's shopping district. Car parking is in a municipal car park about 150 metres away. We were welcomed well by the staff and given a large room with a six foot bed. It looked inwards which gave us a very quiet night, but no view Horrid yellow plastic chairs rather spoiled the effect plus... More

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
