“Clean pleasant 2 star hotel in central position car parking close by”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2009

Visited Pau for 4 days and our stay at Hotel Le Bourbon was fine and what you may expect from a 2 star hotel - no frills but very clean bedroom and a simple but light and airy breakfast room and 'lounge' area

It is located on the corner of Place Clemanceau which was completely renovated a couple of years ago and is now a very modern pedestrianised square with a substantial underground car park (very reasonable fees ) The square itself consists of mainly modern and up market shops

Pau is a very plesant univeristy town with some local places of interest - Chateau /
small old town section and some splendid gardens

We hired a car collected from the very modern but compact Pau airport and took the opportunity to travel to Pyrenees - absolutely stunning with plenty of snow around (about 25 kilometres away) and the coast at Biarritz - lovely resort (about 1 hour in the car) as well as some interesting inland villages and towns

We would have no hesitation in suggesting the hotel for a short stay and the staff were very helpful We asked for a room overlooking the square which was great and quiet due to the very effiicient double glazing and shutters Breakfast (continental) was more than sufficient to start the day well !

I had a last minute trip to Pau France and quickly booked Hôtel Le Bourbon because of location and price. I stayed two nights in Septemember 07. I left Pau for two days and came back and rechecked in. The location in Pau is great. The staff was very helpful and freindly. The room was updated and clean. The view of the new square was very nice and with the new secure parking just outside the door. The parking is additional cost . I'm again going to Pau in a few weeks and I rebooked my stay at Hôtel Le Bourbon.

Well, Pau is certainly a lovely town and we had a great time, but hotel le Bourbon, that's another story! We arrived to find the square where it's located was a construction site with hoarding all around and absolutely no where to park. ( I believe they are making underground car-parking!), we risked parking on the pavement and checked in. When we saw our room we were horrified, it probably hadn't been decorated for 20yrs! and a with a bathroom to match (the carpet in the bathroom was so bad, i had to put my shoes on to go in there). The view from our window (of the construction site) was not the best either, but being tired we decided to go out for a drink and have dinner, perhaps things would then look better??, they didn't, but at least we had decent clean bed linen and bathroom towels, which we later found were changed daily. As i was with my husband and we were only staying 3nts and would be out all day we made the best of it. if i had been on my own, i would not have been happy to stay. Basic is ok, but grubby and neglected is not.

On the plus side, we found the manager to be pleasant, helpful and very hard working, and breakfast in the hotel was very good - fresh croissants, juice and good coffee.

I would not recommend staying because of the very poor condition of the guestrooms and bathrooms, but if the hotel was to be renovated it could be very attractive and the central location is excellent, it's a pity that it won't look out onto a leafy square anymore, but at least there will be carparking close by!
