“Location was great but the beds we did hate”
Reviewed 25 May 2012 via mobile

Stayed 2nights for conference. Very hard to find even with GPS. Expensive parking and had to walk a ways and couldn't find the street. Breakfast ok but pricey. We were put in annex hotel. Unique charming more like small apartment. Hard awful bed, weird shower/tub and doors on bathroom didn't close well. Room was hot and when asked about was told ac unit wasn't working well. We weren't offered to change rooms although place seemed empty when we were there. Staff did help us find a cute oyster fishing village we had heard about. Stay here for the great location. Walk to wonderful restataubts, cathedral etc. beautiful city. Few channels on tv came in English which is helpful when having jet lag wakefulness but too tired to move;)

Reviewed 28 April 2012

As many other have said, the location couldn't be more convenient for shopping and sightseeing. The hotel is in a pedestrian precinct so there is no traffic noise.

It's quite difficult to find if you're coming by car and the parking garage is a little walk away (not great in rainy weather). Parking is also not cheap.

The hotel reception and the first impression are good - not your chain hotel, quirky but clean, interesting, comfortable-looking.

The staff is worth a special mention - friendly (but never familiar) and helpful.

The room was reasonably large, with a comfortable bed, a bathroom and separate toilet). This was not up to the price of 155 Euros/night: the bathroom in particular was in need of some repairs (black grout round the bath in particular), the flush button on the toilet was badly fitted. Minimal toiletries.

You choose whether to have breakfast downstairs or in your room, the price is the same and not included in the room rate: 12 Euros/day/person.

There is nothing wrong with this hotel, but the price leaves you a little bit short on value: 2 people, 2 nights, 2x2 breakfasts+car par and you're over 350€ - you can get better value than this.

....a central location with distinctive French charm then opt for this hotel just off Gambetta square in Bordeaux. It's ideal if you only have a short time to explore this interesting city as it's within easy walking distance of all the main sights and shopping areas. staff were friendly and helpful and the room was clean and furnished in a distinctive chic style.

Fantastic location in the heart of Bordeaux City Centre. The room was small but clean, the spiral staircase (also had elevator) was reminiscent of a medieval castle. Our room had carpet but as I passed by a room that was being cleaned, I peeked in and noticed the set up was exactly the same as ours yet it had wooden floors! That would have been preferred by us.
One quirky thing ... arriving with a car. Car has to drive on a pedestrian walkway which has a huge concrete cylinder in the center ... GPS just couldn't understand what to do ... after phoning hotel we were told to press a button located on a box just outside the sidewalk. OK! But who would have known?! Would have appreciated seeing that tidbit on the reservation confirmation email.
Oh, and parking ... it's a bit of a walk and very very expensive!

............ or not so hilarious! Kitsch, rustic, quirky ........... it's been done and we've had enough of it, it just means that the place is shabby, and I'm sorry Room 17 in the annexe of this Hotel was exactly that. Tiny room, decor was pink, blue, terracotta, prune and red!!! Staircase to a mezzanine third bed meant you had to duck under the staircase to get to the bathroom as the staircase was next to the bed! Safe in the 'wardrobe' wasn't even fixed down, so pretty handy for anyone wanting to rob the room, they could just walk off with the whole thing!
Bathroom was tatty and unclean. Once we had had a shower the steam meant you could see on the window and tiles the dirt and smears. The thick layer of grey dust on the hairdryer cable was a nausiating find the next day. Someone had used spray foam to block a hole alongside the toilet, very unhygenic I would imagine! Towels were thin and tiny.
The best thing I can say about Hotel is that it is well placed and the staff pleasant.
