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.

My partner and I stayed here for one night in August... thankfully it was only one night!!

We arrived a couple of hours before check in time (2pm), The woman behind the counter gave us the death stare and snapped at us, saying check in was at 2pm! When we tried to check in a second time (1.55pm) she rudely snapped at us again!! When she finally checked us in, she was rude, unhelpful and extremely unfriendly.

The place is really close to the train station and tram stop, which is good! However, I wasn't too keen on coming in and out after dark, as it didnt feel like a very safe area!

The room is tiny, with dirty bedlinen (hairs and stains on the blankets). The bathroom is a random, tiny plastic cutout, wedged into the corner of the room... and the size of an aeroplane toilet!

I would not stay here again for the fact I never want to see that horrible receptionist again!!

This hotel was clean, close to the station, comfortable and the staff were very kind and friendly - helping me with a request for a plaster, and good directions to nice restaurants. I felt that it was good value if what you need is somewhere well located that you can get a good night's sleep in. It does what you would expect from a two star hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for one on the back of the hotel.

the pillows are very thin, As I asked one more pillow the receptionist said there is no more! I cant imagine how a hotel cant have a one more pillow? you can understand from this situation that this is not a hotel, just a hostel! yes the room is extremely small for two persons! the 2 seperate beds are not actually seperate! they even dont have a sigle cm seperation! they are like attached!

Stayed at this hotel for one night and got very little sleep due to the gigantic hole in my bed! At least 3 slats were missing. Also had problems with the shower which was extremely temperamental. The only good thing about this hotel was the staff and the location.

Room Tip: Room 110 to be avoided!
