Hotel de France is a quite simple hotel with probably the smallest room I've ever stayed at. But it was clean, the hosts were really friendly, and the location is perfect. We didn't order breakfast (why would you in a city like Bordeaux with café's and lunch places on all corners and in between?). Beds could've been a bit softer,... More

Well located. Clean. Reasonably priced. If you have a big bag, the second floor is a long way up!!! Good to be in an area close, but not too noisy. The bed was hard, but for France that is not strange. Didn't try breakfast, as we ate out. Good value.

Charming little hotel right in the center of Bordeaux, close to everything needed. Stayed there for only one night, my room was very small, but there wasn't nothing to complain about. Big bed. Breakfast was very good without ham however. Very helpful young man in the reception, who helped with luggage.

The Bordeaux Opera Nationale area is marvelous - as my young friends used to say, it is a happening place. Hotels are few and pricey. Hotel de France has the location and modest prices. But there is a "price" for this. The rooms are tiny, tiny, tiny - I'm talking "squeeze around the edges of the bed on all sides"... More

Hotel is in one of the old streets within easy walking distance of the public bus from the airport. Staff spoke English. After 8pm you need to let yourself using a code. They emailed me the code the day before and if you arrive late the keys are left on the desk. Wifi was free and mostly worked. Rooms is... More
