On arrival at Hotel Stars Bordeaux I was greeted by a dead decomposing bird on the welcome mat which I myself had to remove ! The poor bird had obviously been there for some weeks. this was a bad omen.
I was. It allowed to check I to my room till 2 pm . No attempt was made to ask if I had had a good journey or to offer me a coffee seeing as the. Breakfast room was still open.
When I finally got to my room in reminded ,e of a prison cell on board a naval vessel ! The small window has iron grilles over it and overlooks a flat roof and some very drab concrete flats in the distance. A very old nautical theme including ripped striped wallpaper and strange lamps fixed to the wall. The bed was uncomfortable.
There is only one socket above the wardrobe which involves climbing on top of the wardrobe and disconnecting the TV which only has one English TV channel.
The bathroom is very decrepit and small. There is a bizarre system where by the shower works via the washbasin. The shower head won't move .
The keys to the room are old fashioned and heavy and the door lock does not appear to be particularly secure. Keys have to be handed in when leaving the hotel and the staff on reception seem to to change all the time so would have no idea what guests looked like ie one could just come off the street and blog a key to a room.
Last night the evening receptionist was on the sofa with his friend who did not work at the hotel eating take away food.
(Only one night receptionist asked me my name before heading over the key)
I asked him in French if he knew where the bus station was and he said he didn't know what a bus station was ! Very helpful not !
Like other visitors I noticed there is permanent sign on the door saying the hotel is full, which plainly it is not.
The corridors are dark and the carpets heavily stained.
Oh yes and no wi do in the rooms . Apart from that it is a great hotel.
