Room 114 was amazing. The staff was terrific. Super convenient to the tram. Only complaint - you have to boil your eggs at breakfast.

6/10 Good

The rooms were great. Well furnished and the bathrooms were pretty good. Staff at the lobby was hit or miss. There seemed to be some staff members under training and didnt even seem to speak french properly. At checkout we asked for a taxi but the lady at the reception never mentioned that the taxi also charged to get to us. Our alternative was a 15 eur uber to the train station while we ended up paying 40 eur for a taxi that came from a far and charged us for the trip to pick us up. Would have appreciated more transparency from the hotel staff members about this huge difference between uber and taxis

Good hotel
Great friendly staff, very helpful and accommodating. Parking is a very long walk (but you may not need your car for awhile). Many Uber and cabs available. No parking anywhere in Bordeaux. 1.5 mile walk to hotel de ville (main center of action ) close walk to shopping and many other restaurants

10/10 Exceptional

A good location for exploring Bordeaux
An ideally-situated hotel close to the river Garonne, midway between la Cité du Vin and the town centre, both within walking distance. The staff were all welcoming, keen and friendly. The superior room was very spacious with a well-equipped bathroom. It was very clean, but some of the fittings and furnishings were slightly worn and in need of replacement. In spite of the double glazing, there was a lot of traffic noise. We only bothered with breakfast on the first morning. The choice of items, which had to be ordered the previous night, was limited and, at 12 €, somewhat expensive. We did not eat in the restaurant, but the bar had a good selection of drinks at reasonable prices.
