“Welcoming and pleasant”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

My husband and I were in Bordeaux for a few days and we stayed in Coeur de City hotel. The location is really great - right in the city centre. The staff speak very good English and were very friendly and helpful. We arrived a few hours earlier than the check-in time and the staff were happy for us to leave the luggage at the reception until the room was cleaned and ready. The same was offered to us on checking out.
The room was not spacious and we did not have the view as we only had two big skylights (the room on the 4th floor) but it was pleasant and good value for the money - regularly cleaned, towels changed every day and a very comfortable bed. We had free Wi-Fi, coffee and tea making facilities in the room too. The bathroom, although small, was very bright and clean.
Breakfast, 9 euros per person, was tasty (excellent coffee and fresh grapefruit juice) and was conveniently served on the 4th floor where our room was.
The bus stops are very close to the hotel, so we used the city bus, Line 1, to get from and to the airport (very convenient - takes about 45 minutes and costs 1,40 euros per person one way.)
The hotel is very small and has got a lift that can accommodate two people only. The staircase is a bit narrow (good exercise if you are on the top floor :-) ) but all in all we would warmly recommend the hotel if you wanted to stay in the city centre in clean, pleasant and affordable accommodation.

In the middle of the city - shops, restaurants and all the sights in a walking distance! From the airport you get very close to the hotel with line 1 which leaves in the front of airport. Staff is friendly and they advice you in English. Breakfast if ok (bread, buns, cheese, sliced meat, jam, milk, tea, coffee, juice, cereals, yoghurt) and that's in line with the hotel's class. If you're biggish and/or you do not like narrow corridors, small lift and tight shower room then you shall skip this hotel. But all that was ok for us. I appreciated that shower was modern and gave enough warm water. Also, it didn't leak water to the rest of the bathroom. There's water kettle and some tea bags provided. And big plus were good beds! In spring time we were not disturbed by the noise from the street or restaurants in the 2nd floor. Bathroom was a bit chilly but heating in the room worked according to thermostat. We were very pleased with our stay in this hotel!

Room Tip: 208 corner room had view into two directions (another window was in the bathroom).

We were just in Bordeaux en route to Paris CDG so a very quick one night stay (sadly!). Instead of choosing a hotel close to the station for our very early train the following day, I opted for Coeur de City in the heart of things and am very glad I did. Within walking distance to a lot of shops, bars and restaurants, it's still pretty quiet at night.

Rooms are pretty roomy with a lot of space to store bags etc... and the bathroom was of a decent size and well appointed.

GREAT value for money - I'd stay here again.

Room Tip: A room on a higher floor might be useful if you want to avoid as much street noise as possible.

A fantastic location for walking in Bordeaux and being a part of the city vibe.
The staff extremely helpful in suggesting where to eat and what to see.
Room small but workable and very clean.
Free WiFi.

Room Tip: We liked our room overlooking Cours George Clemenceau. Parking not on site, however close by at 19E...

Just a one-night stay travelling through the city, and this place was indeed a find.

Clean, smallish rooms with ample beds, well appointed, storage space, great bathroom.

Friendly front desk staff.

For the location, incredible value.

透過旅館的網站直接預訂就有送免費早餐、飲料及外帶便當,等於除了晚餐其他全包,而且價格相對便宜。旅館的位置不錯,離電車站也不遠,不過招牌很小有點難找。缺點是房間、浴室、走廊和電梯都窄小的不得了。
Free breakfast, welcome drink, and a to-go box (essentially everything except for dinner) were all included by booking directly with the hotel. The price was relatively cheap and the hotel's got a good location close to the tram station. However, the sign outside is small and hard to find, and the small room, narrow walkways and scary elevator are definitely the downsides.

A great hotel where one could walk to everything yet an affordable price and quite a bargain for the area. Lift is not quite adequate for the size of the hotel and number of guests but you just have to be a little patient. Room very nice. Small, but that's France! Pleasant multi-lingual staff. Didn't take breakfast as we only want coffee and a croissant and hotel breakfasts seem overpriced for us.
