According to location I don't think you can outdo this hotel. Yes, it's very average but still clean, quiet and reasonably priced. Shopping, restaurants and attractions are just outside your doorstep. If you need to go further than downtown everything is easily reachable by tram.
Breakfast was ok, the basics like yoghurt, jam, fruit and croissants - and obviously paquette.. ;) A very nice touch was freshly squeezed orange juice. This French lady at the breakfast room was so sweet guiding us on how to use the squeezer.
Service was also ok, altough some of the receptionists could make an effort to look a bit happier to serve you. When checking out receptionist did everything by the book but came across as fed up.
We had a very lovely dinner in a restaurant close to the hotel on this "restaurant street", which has a bunch a places to choose from.
BTW - Bordeaux is so much nicer than Paris...! Less tourists and the city is more beautiful and original.. not to mention how romantic it is. (Let alone prices in Paris...) Will definitely visit Bordeaux again!
