Although we arrived in Bordeaux by air, we planned a few days in Bordeaux, including a day trip to St Emilion, before joining friends in Riberac - hence we wanted somewhere within easy reach of the main railway station. This hotel turned out to be an ideal choice - within easy walking distance from the St Jean railway station, and an easy tram red into the city centre.
The. Tram stop outside the station has a 'duty' attendant who will help visitors get tram tickets from the blue ticket machine. It's a simple system when you know how, but it helps when the attendant is handy (he is grateful for a small 20c tip!).
The hotel room we had was very comfortable, with double glazing that was most effective. Very helpful staff, and free WI-FI - no cable Internet but a computer in the lobby that s free to use with printer.
Note: if you go by train to St Emilion - be prepared for a 20-30 mins walk UP to the town centre. No bus service! However it's easier coming back down - and the wine with lunch helps!
Highly recommended - we will stay here if/when we return to Bordeaux.
