We have stayed here many times going back to the days when it was a Sofitel.
Having a place in the Charente visits to Bordeaux always include a trip to IKEA and the large Auchan shopping centre it is convenient for us, also convenient for the Casino if you are that way inclined.
Its main downs side -distance from town centre- will be removed next year when the extension to the fantastic Bordeaux tram system is complete with a stop literally next to the hotel entrance.
.Other gripes are the usual chain hotel rip offs -Minibar prices and breakfast costs. Time Accor showed a bit of leadership here as the PR value must outweigh the money they make from overcharging for these resulting in their non use.
We have never been disappointed in the restaurant which never has an excess of choices but does all of them beautifully.
The staff are very nice and speak immaculate English and there is a large and secure car park on the hotel property.
All in all a nice place to stay in Bordeaux if you want a little more comfort than most of down town.
In closing just a little plug for the City itself; Transformed from its days twenty odd years ago as dirty and un appealing its downtown 'zone pietons' , tram links and literally miles of riverfront walking, shopping, eating or people watching make it a great destination for a few days away from London. Short flight, great shopping and a great diversity of eating options.
For the next few months road access is tricky due to the tram extension works but these should be fished by the late spring
