2 minutes walk from St Jean railway station. Tram line to the city centre is very close and costs 1.50 Euro. Very clean and well maintained. Breakfast was good, and the bar small but appropriate. Very friendly and helpful staff who spoke English very well

We came to Bordeaux to visit the famous Saint Emilion vineyard, so the hotel wasn't a top priority. This place is a cool little spot to do just that. It has a really cozy reception area, nicely done. I read the trip advisor comments about the receptionist, and I did not have that experience; they were pretty helpful and attentive.... More

Comfortable, clean , value for money if you book in advance. Station area a bit seedy. Station being developed. 2 mins from trams and buses, just 10 mins to central Bordeaux where you have lots of things to do.

We stayed here for one night before our river cruise. We chose this hotel because of its location. We arrived after 9AM and just wanted a place near the train station. The hotel is literally steps away from Bordeaux St Jeane Gare. We can see the hotel as soon as we walked out of the train station! Walk to the... More

Very close to Gare St Jean and only a 5-10 minute tram ride to the heart of the city. Excellent double glazing however, meant zero noise from either trains or traffic. All staff were helpful and friendly but top marks to the young woman who prepared all the breakfasts (and then cleared up - great solo effort :) ) -... More

Good central location - rooms were small but with a bit more thought into the design could have been more comfortable. Parking was an issue - had to park locally (off property) which was costly. Made the overall cost of the stay much higher than more luxurious hotel brands.

Small modernised friendly hotel. Possible to take the tram to the city center. Tram stops just outside the hotel. City center 25 minutes walk away through some nice old parts of the city. Staff speaks good English and Russian. Breakfast is good. The area is usually quiet at night.

The reception was very friendly. The hotel is clean. The location is very good for the station (Gare de St Jean), but not in a salubrious part of town!. There is a tram stop nearby to whisk you away to the good parts! We found this a perfectly good place to stay as a base, and the staff were exceptionally... More

Very convenient for the rail traveller. I had room 501, which surprisingly leads directly off the small reception / bar / breakfast area. Window gives onto very small courtyard. All the facilities are there, but it just did not do anything for me. No instructions on what to do with the Nespresso coffee maker. I would have preferred a kettle... More

Nice hotel with decent albeit small rooms. Great breakfast selection. Conveniently located 15 mins walk from centre of old Bordeaux or 100m from tram stop with 5 minute journey to same area. Good value for the money. Handy off-road parking too.
