Hotel is cost efficient. Room was clean and front desk service was good. I think you get exactly as expected for the price. You do need a car to use this hotel. Otherwise is a long walk to public transportation

Stayed here to attend a wedding in a complex outside of Bordeaux. Located right next to the highway so very convenient for a road trip stop. The beds are comfortable and very clean, really recommended. Went to visit a friend to the near Ibis and there is no comparison, Arena is much much better. Also attention from the owner (I...

I chose this place mostly because of its location, south of Bordeaux, to avoid the major traffic jams when heading southwards, by doing a one night stop. The amenities are rather basic, but it does the job well for a short stop like this. so is the breakfast too. good bedding quality, clean rooms. The staff was friendly, and helpful...

We needed a bed for the night on our way to Spain. It was very easy to get to from the ringway, price was excellent (€56) And the room was clean and modern. Features include air conditioning (which was ok, but not great), a good shower, hair dryer, a TV in the room and double double glazing (yes I wrote...

The Hotel Arena Bordeaux was an overnight stop enroute to Roscoff from Lisbon. This was an unexpected journey as the Santander to Plymouth ferry we had been booked on, had been cancelled due to issues with the ship. The hotel was well located for our trip north and was easy to find. Unfortunately, there are no eating places within the...

First the negatives, very small rooms with the bare minimum of furnishings, not a place you want to sit and chill out. The bathrooms are very basic but adequate for an over nighter. The hotel does not have a restaurant and there is none within easy walking distance. Now the positives, easy to find being just off the ring road...
