“improvement needed”
Reviewed 9 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

It is difficult to comment on this property, as we were not given the apartment we booked, but another in the building, on the ground floor . This one needed more thorough cleaning, several appliances ( including the washing machine) did not work,and the owner proved difficult to contact. Despite my requests we received no meeting instructions, and were only able to access the property because tenants in the apartment above let us in and rang the owner.
There was only a spa bath, which we could not work and which was not clean , and no shower besides a handheld one in the bath. Kitchen equipment was lacking. The unit is quite small, and I would not recommend it for more than two people. Street parking is very hard to find. Location is good - supermarket very close, and walking distance to city centre.

Liked best: good location

“Fantastic Apartment”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The apartment was in a perfect position and had great facilities. It was close to transport and lots of things to see and do. The owner was really helpful too.

“Nice apartment if you don't mind the months of dust!”

This apartment is exactly as in the photos from the owner.
It is ideally located about a 25 minute walk into the main restaurant areas for an evening meal tho there are places nearer.
Communication between myself and the owner was frequent before we booked, and meeting up for the key was fairly straightforward.
We were shown the apartment and given a few pages of information with things we should know in French - English might have helped.
Communication stopped at this point.
I emailed immediately stating my disappointment at the condition of the apartment - months of dust everywhere, on the floors, inside the cupboards, and food on the kitchen tiles and in the microwave. I got no response.
We had a problem for a short while with the internet cutting out and texted the owners mobile - no response.
I sent the photographs of the condition of the apartment, and emailed again my disappointment - we have had no response or apology to date.
My first task was to go to the supermarket and buy disinfectant and cleaning products and clean for over 2 hours so I could unpack my suitcase.
We bought a couple of mugs as there were only 3 tiny chipped cups and a small mug in which the inside ceramic was all cracked.
The free toiletries were a 30ml body lotion and a 30ml opened shower gel of which there was 2cm of product remaining. Even though there is a card stating 'Please feel free to use the full size of L'Occitane products, but if they are removed you will be charged 15 Euros each"!!!
The towels were a variation of off white and stained.
The tea/coffee welcome tray is like some aged sachets someone had in the bottom of a handbag, along with 3 tiny biscuits free with a coffee.

The apartment itself is quite nice, however there is very little room to move round about the bed. The doors to the wardrobe can't open properly as they touch the bed before its possible.
The toilet is very, very small. I am 5'2 and under 8 stone, and the door when closed was only about 5cm from my knees in front of me. i have no idea how a much larger person would cope.

However, now that I gave the apartment a very good clean, the next few occupants at least will have a much more pleasant experience initially than we did.
It is a shame, because a couple of hours house care in between occupants, and a good clean of the shower cubical would make all the difference.

This is a nice apartment, it just needs some attention to detail and a cleaning maid in between.

“Lovely studio”

This is an excellent location to explore Bordeaux. Antonio gave excellent clear directions on how to reach the rental from the train station. The rental is located up a set of small winding stairs and there is no lift. The apartment was spotless and stocked with basics. There was also a washing machine and hair dryer. This is perfect for solo or a couple to see the Bordeaux area.
