“Very short stay”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

We (with our family) arrived in Bordeaux and wanted to check in. The guy at the reception was very arrogant, he is not smiling no nothing.

We were given the codes for our rooms, I saw that the hotel was dark, the corridors were dark it felt like we were the only ones in the hotel. The lobby was dark as well, the receptionist went back into watching TV after giving us the codes for our rooms.

Rooms are spacious and clean, the bed was...clean except for one or two small dead insects on the top bed. Bathroom was clean as well.

I personally didn't want to stay the night there, it is far from city center. Luckily our friends got 2 free rooms in Ibis Meriadeck.

It has a lot of restaurants near the hotel, this hotel is good if you are just passing by Bordeaux for the night. I bet with more lighting (life) and much more friendlier staff this hotel will be great for the price.

Clean room, good shower, decent bed. We were put in a room that the lights don't work and then quickly moved to another room. Not a pretty location or inspiring building but for a quick on route stop its great value

We needed a stop over hotel to view the city for an evening before we carried on our journey to southern France. The rooms were clean & comfortable. Good shower, great location near the station & metro line to central Bordeaux. Not the prettiest hotel, but easy to find & park & the right price for a stop over

Reviewed 24 July 2012

We arrived late so we had to come through a machine who checked us in. The hallway smelled horrible (mainly the penetrating smell of smoke) and the rooms were the same. The aircon didn't work, if you turned it on ... a damp horrible smell came out if it. The bedsheets seemed clean but there were hairs to be found. The breakfast was very basic... but i guess for that price the breakfast was ok.
My advise... PAY A FEW EUROS MORE and stay in IBIS orso, ETAP is absolute horror. And really i'm used to not very cool hotels, but this one was SOOOOO not cool.

This hotel is reasonably priced and for me excellent for a stopover on my way to the channel ports. The proximity of a Courtpaille restaurant (just over the road) makes it ideal after a long and tiring drive.
