Just by station and airport bus stop. Tram stop nearby. Staff were very helpful. Room was small double. Very clean, but little storage for clothes. Can be noisy at night but they provide ear plugs. Tea making in room with espresso machine. Breakfast was 14 euros and we thought worth it.

One of the nicest hotels I've stayed in in France. Very roomy, windows that open! Every little thing is perfect. In France, I would normally not choose a Best Western, seems too much like staying in the U.S. to me - but this one is different. Excellent breakfast including sausages, cheese, unlimited coffee, fruit, yogurt, all the things that are...

We chose this hotel because it is opposite the train station. It was a five minute walk with our suitcases. The staff were welcoming and the room was nice. There were a couple of restaurants opposite the station which made it easy to have dinner and breakfast before we collected our hire car the next day. Very convenient and would...

We have stayed at this hotel now twice in the last 6 months. It is most conveniently situated in Bordeaux, opposite the main railway station, and sufficiently on the periphery of the centre to allow ease of access if arriving by car. The nearby trams provide frequent and swift transfer to the centre of Bordeaux. It has been, and is...

Conveniently located within walking distance of the main train station and a few tram stops from the city centre. Spacious bathroom and well appointed room Breakfast was 14 Euros and parking available at 15 Euros though spaces are limited and need to be booked. Staff were very friendly and helpful Would stay here again without hesitation.

Location is really great, so easy to get to and from airport. Nice hotel, room quite small, even for London standards! But clean and everything you could need. Renovations were going on, so there were some noise. I would have appreciated an email before to let me know about this. We also didn't get the ear plugs or note of...

Just returned from Bordeaux, where we stayed at this hotel. The room was very clean and comfortable. The size was average for France. Everything worked in the room. There was even a nepresso coffee maker. The hotel is in an excellent location for travel to the town. It is right beside the train station. The tram line runs past here...

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,...
