“Very fine hotel”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We've stayed 5 nights and enjoyed it for the hospitality, the excellent breakfast, the very comfortable room. The overall environment is excellent - a nice terrace, the adjacent garden, the location which is very close to the center, about 10-15 minutes of easy walk.

Room Tip: Enough space, good mattress, location.

We chose this hotel due to its location and knowing there's a parking facility next to the hotel. The room where we stayed at was clean, modern and up to date. The staffs were warm, friendly and helpful. Location is great, within close walking distance to the city center. As for parking, we eventually didn't park our rental car at the garage next to the hotel as it was fairly easy to find a spot around the neighborhood.

We stayed for 4 nights at this hotel in December and apart form the service in the breakfast resaurant couldn't fault the hotel. The location is excellent for access to the airport via the Jetbus and also Bordeaux centre either by walking or using the tram system. The wifi in the bedroom was free during our stay which is a plus. The staff were also freindly and helpful. We would definitely recommend the hotel for a short stay and would use it again if we re-visit Bordeaux.

Just stayed there 3 nights over the Christmas period while visiting the family, the hotel is well located, just few minutes from the city centre, the rooms are spacious enough for a queen bed and an extra bed for our child, already available from a convertible sofa which is great, the hotel seems quite new, a good deal as I took advantage of their super sale almost 50% off their best rates, for Christmas period it is a very good deal in Bordeaux. The service is very acceptable, a pleasant surprise compare to our past experience with hotels in France the past few years.

This hotel is situated just outside the City Centre, it was quite hard to find at first. It is within easy walking distance of the City and also is well situated should you want to get on one of the tram busses. It is also in a quiet location.

The staff are friendly and polite, rooms are clean, large and beds comfortable, the only problem I found the pillow as uncomfortable. A bonus is tea making facilities in the room, which are generally not provided in French hotels. The bathroom was a decent size and clean. The bar and reception area are open and inviting. The breakfast was adequate with plenty of choice.

The only problem I found was a lot of stairs to the car park, quite difficult with luggage and not accessible from the hotel so you get wet if it is raining. Though I am sure should I have asked there may have been a staff member available to help.

Another problem was the lifts were out of order a couple of times. There was also a half eaten tray of food in the corridor outside the lifts on the fourth floor from the night before and this was still there when we checked out mid morning the following day. Not a good sign as this shows staff are not checking the corridor areas at night or are just passing things to be left to other members of staff.

Room Tip: Try to see if you can park in the small space in front of the hotel to unload your luggage before...

We had a very late emergency booking and on arrival at this venue it did not let us down. The room was a good size, with a comfortable bed and an excellent bathroom. Breakfast gave a good selection and variety of food. A very short stay so I cannot comment on its location to local attractions. However it has one outstanding travel feature.
For people heading to the airport, there is a Jetbus stop approximately 25 metres from the front door. Cost for us, in September 2012, 6 Euro per head. This was absolutely ideal for us, as we headed back to the airport to pick up our vehicle.
