My partner and I stayed in the Ibis hotel near the Bordeaux train station (literally, across the street) with my friend for one night before heading into wine country with our rental car.

It was exactly what we needed as we arrived by train from Paris in the evening, found the hotel easily, were checked in immediately by a friendly staff person and the three of us stayed in a small but new and very clean room for only 44 euros. My friend had to take a bunk bed above our double bed but the beds, pillows, and sheets were comfortable and everything was immaculately clean (which is most important for me!).

The tram passes right in from of the train station to get to central Bordeaux so we were able to easily find out way to some great eats and wine in the city that evening.

Although the hotel is right near the train station we found the room to be extremely quiet and didn't hear a thing (either guests or traffic outside). We didn't stay for breakfast so I can't comment, but again great location as we were able to pick up our Europcar rental right around the other side of the train station.

Great value for money in an expensive part of the world!

A well located modern hotel within 5 minutes walk of the main station (out the station and turn right, keep next to the railway and you will see the hotel). Some rooms look out over the railway, which is quite nice. Noise is not a issue in the room either. The room is typical to Ibis and I could not fault it. Room is air conditioned with comfortable beds. Worth staying in especially if you book in advance for the best rates. Within walking distance to the main sights and also has a tram stop outside if you did not want to walk. Reception staff speak good English and maps are also available for the local area. Bathroom is small but modern and clean with shower gel on the wall. Tv in the room has just 1 English speaking channel- so keep that in mind if you are planning on spending time at the hotel.

Our 'non-smoking' room smelt very strongly of cigarette smoke. The hotel felt a little bit grotty and run-down. From our window we had a grandstand view of the vagrants under the railway bridge. Nice.

On the plus side, the staff were helpful. I'd recommend the Port de la Lune restaurant which is close by and very good indeed.

Would I return? No.
