Travelling back from Spain needed to break the trip and Bordeaux seemed sensible after agonizing on the motorway where to stay. Quick google at 9 o'clock at night, booked it online, really good value but turned up while things were a bit lively in and around the station. One of us popped in to find out where the parking was because on road parking looked decidedly dodgy!!
Concierge really helpful, parking is in the Ibis car park a very short walk down the road, passcoded, secure, very reassuring.
Wacky room, was like being in hand painted dolls house!! No aircon, bit of a pain but comfy bed and spotlessly clean.
Breakfast spot on next morning in the quirky breakfast room (more fascinating mixes of decorative styles)
All in all a great last minute find that did the job really well
