Perfect location, Gare St. Jean is upfront, Carrefour is just behind. Tram is in front of the hotel and also at walking distance to main attractions if you want. Service-breakfast was at high quality, Nespresso is served at the reception area, definitely recommended for stay in Bordeaux. Rooms are large and comfortable enough. Great for those looking comfort-silence and good... More

I was looking for a hotel walking distance from the train station and this hotel is a short 5 minute walk. The hotel is clean, modern, with air conditioning and helpful staff. Room was a bit small, but fine for one night. If you want to go the city center transportation is one block. The neighborhood is ok, but we... More

Booked at last minute and very welcoming, helpful staff. Hotel is smart clean very well appointed and in an extremely useful position. Room was spacious and had an extremely comfortable bed. The position is super, not 5 but right opposite station. It has a small car park and a great but costly breakfast.

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.
