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

Small hotel in a very convenient location on the western edge of the old town. Easy walking distance to all the main attractions and of course the shopping. Some lovely little squares for outdoor dining within 5 mins walk. Hotel was good value for money with rooms comfortable but basic. Breakfast room not large with a limited variety compared to...

We very much enjoyed our quiet, clean convenient, helpful, friendly stay at this hotel. All you need add to this a good serve yourself breakfast and good location, walk to anywhere. Our room 105 had a dual balcony facing the (narrow) laneway was roomy and very comfy with arm chairs and separate bathroom and toilet.

First, don't be put off by the location and what appears to be the exterior, this is a lovely property and a perfect location! It is right in the heart of the university district and much of that portion has not be renovated as much of the rest of the city, however you are in walking distance to everything. Once... More

A nicely located hotel in city center. Easy to get to from the train station on tram C followed by a short walk. Very close to restaurants and shopping. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The accommodations were adequate. A little odd with the shower and sink in a separate room from the toilet. Both were right next... More

Great hotel, beautiful historical building well renewed, very well located in the city center. Good breakfast. Friendly and efficient employees. Ugly courtyard view, very small room, one the smallest I had in my life, very difficult to circulate when you are 2, due to the small volume, bad feeling of no air over night, we opened the window with mosquito...

The location of this hotel was second to none. The staff where extremely friendly, helpful and pleasant. There is a breakfast room but there were so many cafes, restaurants bars close to the hotel we didn't bother and went out to breakfast in the sunshine. Room was a little bit on the cosy side but again the location makes up... More

My wife and I stayed here for four nights in early May, ‘16, at the beginning of our visit to southwest France. It was an excellent choice and we recommend it highly. The Grand Hotel Francais is a very attractive, well-managed hotel on the edge of the main pedestrian area of Bordeaux. It is very well located – an easy... More

Located on a quiet side street in a largely pedestrian zone, this hotel is very well located for visiting most sights in central Bordeaux. It is also less than 5 minutes to a tram stop should you wish to travel farther afield (for example to the excellent Cite du Vin museum). Rooms are average size, but feature a large closet... More
