“As Reviewed, Except for the Shower”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

We generally found this place to be as per the previous reviews, with one exception. The only shower facility was hand held, which made for a fairly cold, unpleasant shower. The room itself was nice, and the location was great, as were the staff. But if you value a good shower before you start your day, look elsewhere. The disappointing part is that the issue could be fixed by just installing a bracket and shower curtain.

Small but very comfortable, I stayed here with my 2 year old, whom the staff made very welcome. The rooms are very tastefully renovated and the beds soft and cosy. I would recommend for short stays and small family groups as well as design-loving independent travelers.

We stayed at this hotel at the end of March 2013. We had booked to stay at the Ibis hotel (big mistake) but on arrival found it dreadful and therefore began a late evening search for a better option.

Fortunately we stumbled across Hotel La Cour Carree which was not only around the same price as the Ibis, but better located and so much nicer/cleaner. We stayed in 2 different rooms (due to not booking in advance the 1st night was in a top floor room and the remainder of our holiday was in a ground floor room) and both were lovely.

The hotel and rooms are very modern, newly decorated, smart and very clean and the owners and staff were very helpful and friendly. There is also a lovely internal courtyard to sit and relax in and get away from the bustle of the city.

The rooms could do with having tea/coffee making facilities or perhaps even in the lobby/dining room (perhaps a Nespresso machine in the lobby and capsules in the room would allow guest to pay per capsule?). Also no hairdryer in the room. The owners/manager seem to be more than happy to accommodate any requests, however they do not operate a 24hr concierge and are only there in the day to late evening.

The location of the hotel is perfect for exploring Bordeaux - don't be put off that it's on a side road - this gives the advantage of being located in a much quieter area with less than a minutes walk to the cafés, restaurants and shops.

I would highly recommend this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Stayed two nights Room 1 ground floor, helpful and friendly staff clean and nice modern common areas.
However:
The parking is hard to get in and out of and we only have a bmw 5 series, with a mpv or suv it could be a problem. there are only two spaces and the second car blocks the first.
Our room was small and the "designer" or "boutique" appearance is a very thin veneer. The headboard to the bed is actually painted onto the wall and only two rather flimsy foam pillows provided making uncomfortable to read or watch the small television, no drink making facilities or mini bar.The shower is a hand held one fixed about chest height with no riser, so you have to hold it to shower, there is now hard screen or door just a cheap white plastic curtain which means that a lot of water gets on the floor, the ceramic shower tray also had a large patch of missing enamel in it. Combined with the voile Ikea style curtails (at pavement level) and chipped paint on the woodwork, it was pretty disappointing but photographs well as these details dont show up.
General impression is of a job done on the cheap with little attention to detail, this is a same as the staff are great and the place is clean.

We had a very lovely experience! It was a beautifully renovated, and modern boutique hotel with friendly and very helpful staff. We booked 3 rooms (for 3 couples) and all of us were happy with our rooms which were clean, modern and very comfortable. We also really loved being able to sit in the courtyard, chatting and relaxing. The breakfast was nice and started the day off well. Overall, we were all very happy with our choice and would return. I highly recommend Hotel La Cour Carree.

Thoroughly renovated in a sleek modern design, La Cour Carrée delivers on the boutique hotel experience. The rooms are fresh, clean, sleek and spacious. It is a little hard to find,but once you have found it....it is like your secret oasis tucked away from all the hustle and bustle. I highly recommend it.

We recently stayed here during a two week trip to France and it was a real highlight! We were super impressed with the Hotel La Cour Carree's value for money, slick, modern design, friendly staff and location in the heart of old town Bordeaux. I would definitely recommend it for travellers wanting to experience Bordeaux and all it has to offer. It is quiet, yet within easy walking distance of restaurants and shops. We were very happy with the airconditioning, given that we were caught in the middle of a heatwave! The room (we chose the cheapest option at 115 Euro per night) was spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. We will definitely go back to this gem of a hotel.
