Stayed at the Cardinal in Sept 2018 for 2 brief days. The hotel is small--only 10 rooms--and we stayed in the Cardinal Suite. While the room was a bit of an odd layout (think a "9" shape wrapped around a small courtyard), it was spacious and had a cool contemporary decor to it.

While Cardinal isn't a full service hotel, the service we received was truly excellent. Can't say enough good things about the young man who covered the front desk (small hotel; one person), helped with luggage, provided recommendations, etc. I also recommend the breakfast they serve from the local patisserie.

Room Tip: Cardinal suite had enough room for parents & 2 kids

Rooms were as described: big enough, washroom was nice. Service was good. Location was great, just next to the Cathedral and the council house. Bordeaux is a really nice city to visit. Easy to walk around and buzzing with retails, bars, coffees and restaurants.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Cardinal Bordeaux for 4 nights last week. The staff were absolutely amazing. Nadine could not do enough for us and everyone was so helpful. The location is in the middle of the town with Trams very close by and walking distance to shopping and great restaurants. We would recommend this hotel for anyone. Thank you Hotel Cardinal for your wonderful service. Cannot wait to return.

Attended with my partner for a long weekend. But if a misnomer calling this a hotel. It has no common rooms or areas. Breakfast is taken in your room - continental, not cooked.
There is a cooker hob, fridge and microwave in the room. It’s too small to be called an apartment which is why I think they’ve marketed as a hotel.

There is a musty smell in the lobby... it’s a little strange. There is lovely air con in the room, but no full length wardrobe, so be careful trying to hang things up.

Great central location. We enjoyed it here, but would likely just try to lease a flat next time.

Is a very nice and quiet hotel with I believe only ten rooms. Nice and modern rooms that are on the small side. bathrooms are tiny with no lights in the shower area, maybe they ran out of the nice build in spots whe they redecorated....
Location is superb, just not to the cathedral and all the bars and restaurants in the old city.
All in all a bit pricy, but really nice!
