“Just what is expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

Stayed there the evening of our arrival in Bordeaux and the night before we left after 10 days in Dordogne. Having stayed at an Etap before we knew exactly what to expect and were not surprised by anything. It is a clean bed in a good location for the Bordeaux airport. The breakfast was fine and cheaper than the airport. However there is no airport shuttle and previous travelers talk about walking from the airport, it can be done but not with any real amount of baggage. The best alternative is to catch bus #1 from the airport which will drop you off very close by and to cat it again when you return to the airport. Simple and only 1.40 Euro. The desk can tell you where the bus stop is.

This was the first time we had stayed at an Etap Hotel and wasn't sure what to expect on arrival. However, on checking in we were pleasantly surprised. There was ample car parking right by the hotel. On checking in the guy at the desk was very helpful. We were concerned there might not have been anyone on duty by the time we arrived and had to use the automated check-in but this particular hotel was manned 24/7, well it was the night we were there.

Our room, albeit smaller than anticipated was clean, bright and airy. We liked the quirkiness of the layout. There was a flat screen tv, air conditioning and an extra large shower which was lovely to use.

Our only criticisms were that we didn't have any extra pillows, I find it strange how any hotel thinks only having a pillow each will aid a good nights sleep. Fortunately for us we had the family room so took the pillow from that bed and folded up the duvet to make another pillow.

Overall, we would definitely choose an Etap to stay at again. They are ideal value for a nights stay. This particular Etap has just been rebranded as Ibis Budget and has obviously been updated, so would advise to stay at ones which have been upgraded. The dated Etaps (see our Etap Rennes, France) are just that, so if there is a choice, stay In the newer, updated hotels.

What it is is a budget hotel bang next to the airport. It has no ambiance, no bar and no restaurant. But hey--it's only 50 euros and a 15 min walk or 5 min drive to the airport. The rooms are small but clean and the staff is helpful. There also is no shuttle, but as we had an 0600 flight, shuttles wouldn't be running anyway. We had a nice meal at the hotel across the street.

Satueday night and overnighted here to catch the early flight to Luton. Hotel is cheap & cheerful and room very small but perfectly adequate for 2/3 people as a place to lay our heads. The room was for 4 people and I assume the other 2 would be children as there was a bunk type above our double. We were surrounded by a sea of hotels but none were open for evening dining at the weekend and no cafes or supermarkets in walking distance either. Got in our car and finally found a drive in pizza place (didn't know they even existed) so took our pizzas back to our hotel room and stuffed our faces.
The hotel breakfast seemed expensive - just a cold buffet - but the cost of a coffee and croissant at the airport was astronomical so i advise travellers to bite the bullet and buy the Etap breakfast

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor but there was a lift so didn't matter. Noise wasn't a problem.

I chose this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and was not disappointed...it's comfortable , quiet and clean...a very good overall value.The front desk is staffed 24 hours/day. I had a 6am flight and was able to walk to the airport in under 15 minutes. The walking route is well lit -though there is not a sidewalk all the way. I will stay there again when using Bordeaux airport.

Absolutely perfect airport hotel. Extremely good value for a comfy night's sleep before an early flight (the airport terminal is about a 10 minute walk away). The room was modern and clean and we also opted for a buffet breakfast that was much cheaper than what you'd pay at the airport!
