Ideal central location with Friendly staff that suggested good local dining. The complimentary wine and cheese every evening is a really memorable touch. Rooms are clean, large TVs. Decor a bit dated but has the feel of old school Bordeaux, which added to the ambience. Breakfast very basic and wouldn't recommend, not when you can go to a local patisserie... More

I stayed two nights at the hotel. There is a mall, cinema, shops and eateries at your door step. The rooms are small and basic but clean. The hotel is compact and the breakfast is acceptable. However the winner is the location, service and the complimentary wine and cheese every evening. I loved Bordeaux and staying at this hotel made... More

This is a nice location, within walking distance to the pedestrian shopping areas and the river. The room was quiet and the air conditioning works well. The hotel offers a nice selection of food items for breakfast and we really enjoyed the cheese and wine happy hour in the evenings. We were traveling with bicycles and the staff were quite... More

From the pictures on the wall I discovered that the previous name of this hotel was Le Coq Dór. It must have been a nice hotel in the very center of Bordeaux. It's a pity that the management hasn't made any effort to keep the hotel in good condition. However the staff was very smilley and helpful, lots of hotels... More

The hotel is ideally placed for seeing all the 'must sees' in Bordeaux on a very quiet road. There is a supermarket nearby for any essentials.

This hotel is located in the center of the shopping area of Bordeaux, right next to the "Grande Homme" the staff are very helpfull and speak many languages between them, the rooms are clean and comfortable, with air conditioning (important in the summer in Bordeaux). There are lots of places to eat nearby and walking distance to lots of attractions.

I was absolutely horrified with this Hotel. The shower was so filthy I refused to wash my hair in there. The carpet had cigarette burns. The size of the room was claustrophobic.
