We arrived here after cycling from Marmande, although our rooms where not ready the receptionist offered us drinks and the Tour de France on TV, which was fine with us. The location was also ideal as we were catching the train next day so all we had to do was walk across the street to the station. Bordeaux city centre is within easy reach by foot or tram.

Dear Customer,

Thank you for having taken time to write us a comment. We enjoy the fact that you appreciate your visit at our BEST WESTERN Royal Saint Jean.

As you said we are very closed to the train station and this is good for people who has to take a train. Thanks to the tramway and the two stations near our establishment, only about 10 minutes are necessary to join the city center!

The team and I wish to welcome you again.

Best regards

After having a some what of a disappointing experience with a Best Western in Paris I was hesitant to book another B/W in France.....but to our surprise this would be one of the best hotels we have stayed in in France over our years of travel.
We decided to spend a couple of days in Bordeaux before heading up to Paris for a week on the last leg of our journey and chose the Royal St Jean because of its proximity to Gare Bordeaux St Jean. An excellent located Hotel with the fluent English speaking staff who were very helpful and welcoming. The Bedrooms are modern and stylish, very comfortable and the largest bathroom we have ever had in France. Free Wifi was a great bonus. The staff suggested we buy a 10 trip tram ticket each which we used daily back and forward from the town centre. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. Thank you to Sophie Billard and her staff we will be back as well as letting our friends know in New Zealand.

Very close to Bordeaux's St. Jean Train Station, less than a five minute walk while dragging/rolling bags, and it is on Tram Line C. The staff is friendly and helpful with an excellent knowledge of their city. The breakfast buffet is generous including scrambled eggs and Canadian-type bacon in addition to the standard continental fare. The rooms are comfortable but my bathroom was tiny. The WiFi works well. All in all, it is a good value for the money and the staff makes it an overall fine place to stay.

Moved to the best western,

from another somewhat sketchy hotel across the street.....

the location leaves something to be desired, but very convenient to the train station and the the tram lines.....

The rooms are new, and the Nespresso Machine in the room was a much welcome treat.

would definitely stay here again

a bit small rooms for family though

An excellent Hotel located opposite the Main Railway Station, where the fluent English -speaking staff are helpful and welcoming. The Bedrooms are modern and stylish, well equipped (even has a Nespresso Machine and iPod dock!), and very comfortable. Excellent soundproofing mean't you couldn't hear a thing from the road or the Station. Newspapers are provided to read. Free Wifi was a great bonus, and secure (paid) parking was useful. In the morning the Breakfast Buffet selection was one of the best I have ever been offered in France, all fresh and nicely presented. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.
