Comfortable and clean rooms in modernised old building. Busy area near the main station but convenient for intercity trains, buses to airport, and trams/buses to historic centre. Some good restaurants nearby but very easy to take tram to main centre with its many good places to eat. However, the staff made this a hotel that stands out; everyone from reception,...

I had booked a room for Bordeaux over an internet portal and lost the confirmation of my booking. The receptionist at Best Western was extremely friendly and helpful in this chaotic situation. The room was super. Small, but very pretty and tidy and recently renovated. Breakfast was good too. I can really recommend it!!

Stayed here for one night. Perfect location near train station and tram stops. Great jumping off point for exploring the region. Friendly staff and clean and modern rooms. Simple breakfast, but exactly what we expected. Would definitely recommend.

We selected the hotel because it was close to the railway station, and we wanted minimum fuss to get our luggage to and from the station. The area is OK, and we mostly walked into the centre of the city, although the tram was close by. The room was on the small side but comfortable. The staff were very helpful...

Booked at last minute and very welcoming, helpful staff. Hotel is smart clean very well appointed and in an extremely useful position. Room was spacious and had an extremely comfortable bed. The position is super, not 5 but right opposite station. It has a small car park and a great but costly breakfast.
