“Parking ! No Problem”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

This hotel was chosen primarily because having been to Bordeaux previously I understood the hassle of travelling with a significant amount of luggage and trucking it to a hotel in a pedestrian only area over cobbled streets . Unfortunately many of Bordeaux's hotels are located in this area.
Our GPS did not seem to understand the one way streets in Bordeaux but after manoeuvring our way around that situation we reached the hotel . Great parking right in front of the hotel and I could see the entrance to the parking garage adjacent . Fantastic . Nice lobby and breakfast area . I had found this hotel on Trip Advisor and booked directly with the hotel ,obviously I had missed something important . I was told that I should have booked the parking in advance as there was limited space and although it was possible to drive up to load and unload the bags we would have to park a couple of blocks away in the public underground parking . The hotel has an arrangement with the parking garage and if you take your parking ticket to the tourist office they will issue you with another ticket at considerably less cost . Strangely enough this worked to our advantage as the following day we observed a car backing up out of that adjacent garage with inches to spare on each side . Really a bit of a nightmare .
The hotel room was quite large , clean and quiet , breakfast was good , reception very helpful. Located minutes from the centre and many excellent restaurants . I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to others .

We stayed here for 2 nights on a recent visit to Bordeaux.

The hotel is in a beautiful 18th century building, which I loved, as it does have a lot of charm. Our room was actually fairly spacious however, it was very tired looking. Drab brown colour, not a lot of light. The bathroom was clean and decent, but the shower was tiny.

Because the building is old, it doesn't seem to be insulated very well as the street noise was incredibly loud, which made it difficult to sleep well.

Overall it was a decent stay, the location is really good and the staff were great.

I had the chance to stay for a week-end. Very well located between the opera and place des Quinquonces, near the river in a quiet side street.
All the center restaurants, venues etc… within walking distance.
Nice decor, perfectly clean, good value for money.

Great location, but this hotel really needs a refurbishment. The hallways are very spacious, but once you enter your room, you discover the rooms are very small. The bathroom looked updated, but I really think it was designed by an intern. Or a monkey. Almost half of the showers are not covered by any wall or shower curtain, so your bathroom gets flooded every time you shower. Nothing majestic about that!
Also, I do not understand why hotels (like this)still work with real keys...
The beds are ok, as is the breakfast. The staff was very helpful.
But I would only book this hotel again if there was a real good deal. I loved the city by the way!

This hotel is located in the centre of Bordeaux at the side of the Quinconces Esplanade. You can reach walking all main places of downtown Bordeaux and be connected to the surroundings with all trams departing from the Quinconces Esplanade. The hotel has nice practical set up rooms that make your stay comfortable and allow quiet sleep based on a good isolation of the windows. A nice breakfast is offered every morning based on a buffet. The staff is ready to help you and a comfortable reception room allows you to wait or meet in a nice atmosphere. the only remark is that check out is strictly at 1100, this rule reminds me to the obligation to pay 4 nights in hotels in Bordeaux when you visit the Vinexpo.

This is a very pleasant hotel right in the middle of everything, but because it is in a side street it is very quiet. 2 steps to the trams and buses including the local airport bus which is cheaper and much more frequent than the bus on the airport website.

The main shopping street starts just around the corner and the main eat street area is about 2 blocks away. The team to the train station takes about 15 minutes including walking, waiting and tram time.

Friendly front desk staff almost like family run. 24 hr reception.

My room 312 was great. It's just off the stairs but I didn't get any noise and it's isolated from other rooms with no neighbours. So absolutely no noise. It looked out over a small courtyard. Double glazed window could be opened for fresh air and air con worked if needed.

My only complaints are bathroom didn't have a shower curtain so water got on the floor.

We stayed 2 nights at the Hotel Majestic in mid-September. The hotel is conveniently situated for sightseeing and also shopping. It's also only a minutes walk from the tram (which is great if you need to get to and from the Bordeaux Gare).

The rooms are a wee bit dark but I suspect that's just because of the musical decor. The bathroom was light and spacious, but unfortunately the hotel had an issue with the hot water one morning which meant no showers. The staff were very apologetic when this happened.

Great mid-priced hotel in a brilliant location.
