The location to the historic district was perfect. The staff exceptionally helpful. All very good.
Perfect location for visiting the city and no traffic noise. Nearby a big city parking, small nice caffes just outside for a quick breakfast. A lot of restaurants in the neighbourhood. Comfortable beds. Some warm water problems, so they did not charge us for the breakfast, we apprciated it. The bahroom very tiny and should be renovated. The Only window very high up, could not even look out.
Quite in the center of the city. No shower curtain, just a half "window". Safe deposite requires to requiest a key and a lock (!) at reception.
Very friendly, helpful staff right in the centre of the shopping district and restaurants. Can't drive to the hotel. Have to park and walk at least 1/2 km to the hotel.
In the centre of the town
Central location, within walking distance of many sites. No complaints.
Location, friendly, good breakfast, clean.
Could not be closer to the center of all activities-pedestrian shopping streets, riverfront , opera, restaurants and cafes, trams, tourist info center. room accessories. Positives focus on reception staff-very courteous, most helpful with restaurant bookings, taxis etc. if looking for clean, moderately priced hotel for basic functional needs in the core of this beautiful 18th and 19th century city, you can't go wrong. Unfortunately lobby, reception, bar areas very outdated, dark and unappealing. Rooms extremely small for couples.Breakfast buffet very ordinary in a dreary second floor space. Not worth 14 euros unless included in room price.
Location Breakfast not including in the price
Location Could not control the room temp. The comforter was too heavy and I couldn't lower the room temp, therefore either too hot or too cold all night.
The staff at the hotel were most helpful. The rooms were nice, clean and air conditioned. The location is perfect.
Helpful staff, decent breakfast at convenient times, central location and proximity to a variety of bars and restaurants. Street noise at night.
The staff were exceptionally pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was somewhat expensive.
The location was excellent. Elevators were very very slow. Lighting in the halls was bad.
Very clean, modern and comfortable. Lovely hot shower. Staff very helpful and friendly. Excellent location. No tea or coffee making facilities!
Big, comfortable double bed and spacious bathroom. Hotel in ideal position from which to explore Bordeaux. Staff efficient and friendly. Would be sensible to include kettle and tea/coffee in room as matter of course rather than by request.
The location is ideal and the staff were very friendly
Location Deluxe room: Small & outdated Wall view Breakfast
Delightfull hotel with very nice rooms
we were able to procure a bright room on the square, beautifully decorated with toile fabric. excellent bathrooms with wood and marble/granite. our initial room was very dark and overly done in dark faux-curtain wallpaper. but a good sized room!
The service is excellent there - they make you feel very welcoming - effortless and unassuming. Nothing
Attention to details. Service. Aircon. Central location no need to use car as tram service first class also. Staff very helpfull and pleasent.Breakfast and dining very good. All in all an excellent stay! Lighting in room could be brighter bedside reading lights could be a lot more effective if the flexi arm was longer ! Bathroom hot water did not appear to be thermostatically controlled !
all went clockwork - we aked to rent a car: it arrived i ntime at the right price etc . Great hotrel - great value for money !
The staff, especially the concierge managers, were helpful, pleasant, and went out of their way to assist, without asking. Very well trained and gracious. We enjoyed being on the main Place of the Grand Theatre; sitting outside on the terrace was delightful. Comp. bottles of gazeuse and plat water each day in the room was a nice touch. We were on the top floor, converted from attic rooms, so the ceiling was low and the windows were much smaller than those of the floors underneath. The lighting in the room did not compensate for this and it was impossible to read either a book or a newspaper. The drapes were luscious, but covered the small windows. Would have liked a coffee/tea tray in the room.
The hotel is right in the city centre, very close to shopping area. The staff is very helpful in all our questions. The room is not too big so preferably a medium size luggage suits better. The traffic is very heavy, it took more than 1 hour to reach the hotel from the city outskirt!
Excellent restaurants and cafes abd breakfast.
Stayed at the hotel for three nights. The restaurant was superb, other than having a table full of Chinese next to us who had two interpreters running around the table explaining/translating. Still an enjoyable meal non-the-less, and chef Pascal Nibaudeau came and spoke with us which was nice - although only because he had to come and 'shmooze' the Chinese clients who I assume were carrying big bank books! Location is great, right next to the shopping area, opposite the opera house and two mins from the tourist centre and tour buses. Reception and concierge were very helpful. The room was well finished and luxurious, however it consisted of a very narrow hallway with the mini-bar, safe etc being right at the entry, and the bedroom at the other end - the oddest shaped hotel room I've stayed in. Virtually no room to place an open suitcase let alone two, which for the price we payed was not good enough. Unfortunately the hotel's gym and spa were still being constructed, which we were not advised when booking. The staff at the bar were not attentive at all, and on two occassions I had to get up and order drinks - not great when they are standing around chatting instead of servicing the customer. The couple beside us didn't hold back on their criticism! Not good enough for a 5 star hotel.
Location, cleanliness, bed, Furniture really looked bad and the mini bar was missing.
Excellant location & good value, clean room and bathroom The room we stayed in was small and lacked air-conditioning.
Good location, good service and friendly and kind staffs, the room was really nice.
Very nice stay..good breakfast, nice room and great staff.
A very practical and well located hotel. It does what it advertises!
The location was great, very conveniant for a short visit to the city.
fantastic location, friendly staff, wonderful views from room, comfort of hotel. no water boiling facilities, the lift was way too small!
Very good value for money.We thought the hotel could have been a 3 star instead of a 2. We enjoyed our welcome drink on arrival. The room was large & quiet with a view over the city. It's location is ideal for exploring the many lane ways, cafes & shops and it is only a short walk to the tram to take you to the train station. We would have preferred to have a shower screen on the bath as the water tended to go all over the floor & could be a slip risk.
Location, breakfast Room dated, needs upgrade
the location, the staff, the staircase, the balcony, the bathroom some halls smelled like cigarettes, the sandwiches in the lunch box were soggy and inedible. shame, as Bordeaux has such lovely food, esp the bread!
Clean rooms. Staff helpful and friendly - helped with restaurant suggestions and bookings.
oui no hair dryer in washing clost
Centrally located, helpful to degree, limited english but otherwise easy enough to get to all the sights. No printer on computer
Breakfast with fresh product, recently renovated, clean unfriendly personnel, no luggage storage room, no toilet for customers other than the rooms
friendly staff, great location
Really good value hotel in an excellent location in central Bordeaux. The rooms are a bit small, but more than adequate for a short break.
excellent position. curteous staff. good choice of tv channels. overall many more positives than negatives poorly designed bathroom. no shelf for toiletries. no shelf in shower for shower gel. no loo brush!
English speaking staff Position of hotel Very small rooms
Leaving There was nothing to like.
very clean lovely reception staff location very little natural light in the room
comfortable bed and fridge in room Bedroom was very small and shower over bath was constrained and difficult to use.
Location and value for money - asked for a bright room and got one! Breakfast was very good - nothing to fault
The hotel was very well located in the "golden triangle" of the city. Rooms were small, but very well designed. Breakfast unusual rich for France. The atmosphere of the hotel was very pleasant - especially the paintings in the lobby and in rooms.
Excellent location; friendly, helpful staff with good knowledge of English; nice breakfast. The room was a bit too small.
location small rooms . . . but it's Europe!
When we checked in we asked for a cab to the airport at 430am to the airport and were told by the front desk clerk not to bother going to the airport until at least 530 si ce it did not open until 6am I happened to know this was not the case but the clerk debated us on this for a while and seemed to ignore our request until we became insistent. Had we listened to her we would have certainly missed our flight. Mostly I don't want to debate MY travel plans I would rather just receive assistance instead of engage in a debate.
The hotel was in an excellent location the breakfast rooms were very small and overcrowded so all guests could not eat in breakfast room
Central location, Air Conditioning, room fittings, balcony If we had been driving, it would have been impossible to get the car to the hotel (the hotel is in a traffic free area).
Possibility to make fresh orange juice. Not to be.
Very friendly staff.
Location excellent. Staff lovely - very helpful. Nice breakfast. Relaxed atmosphere. Small rooms but fine for price and limited stay. Little noisy at night from street but typical of city centre location on a Friday night.
This is a sweet little hotel right in the centre of town run by a wonderfully friendly couple who make it feel more like a b and b than a hotel. Unfortunately the room I had was a bit shabby and the bathroom was tiny. Really tiny. Don't expect luxury.
Simple hotel but very tasteful and clean. Small but cosy room with good bed. Location couldn't be better. Excellent and friendly service. Given the price this hotel is an excellent if not the best choice in Bordeaux.
The location is perfect! The owner and his wife were very friendly and helpfull. The rooms were clean and the atmosphere was warm and cosy. We were very positive about our stay in Hotel de France!
location was great the stuff was very pleasent the room was not very clean and there was no soap in the shower
The welcome, the location and the comfort of the rooms
The location is excellent. Rooms/bathrooms were very small and there were quite a lot of stairs (no lift). If we had been unfit or very large people it could have been a problem. I was also disappointed that, having booked at least 4 months ahead and requested a quiet room, we were given one overlooking the street. We were able to move to another room the second night which was quieter but the bathroom was even smaller and you couldn't move in there!
Extremely nice and helpful front desk! Location was amazing. Very well-kept hotel. Room was very small (but very clean). Hotel was within ear shot of building construction down the street that made for a somewhat restless sleep.
Welcoming classy little hotel. Well located quiet street. Clean, nice art work on the walls. Attention to detal. Pleasant breakfast room. Good value breakfast. Rooms small.
The owners were very friendly and informative. Very good breakfast. Excellent location
Very central hotel and only yards from the city tram network. The hotel is next to the pedestrian area and all places to eat and drink. Only 10 mins from the river and lovely promanade with bars. Hotel is undergoing renovation work and there are were rooms available that have been renovated. It would have been good if these were able to be booked through your site.
Good staff. Central location - others in our party had better rooms, so possibly our room was awaiting refurbishment Low room quality. Lift broke down.
Welcome from the receptionist - very helpful and informative. No
The helpful staff on the front desk The corridors were in need of painting as they are not in the best of condition
Nothing The insects, the noise, window not closing, extremely beyond small, no lobby, broken elevator. No help for suitcases, etc. A total disaster!!!
central location dark and dingy but renovations underway
Friendly staff, excellent value, clean, great building and location. The hotel is right in the city center with easy access to everything.
Great location, pity the hotel is about to fall down. Hotel is totally in need of refurb.
Location, cleaniliness, ability to keep my baggage at the hotel during the day. Bathroom flooded.
It needs complete redecoration, but cost was low enough to be acceptable
spacious room with balcony & lovely view. Air conditioning facilities were not great.
excellent location, very helpful staff. Room was excellent
The hotel is centrally based for shops and good restaurants. In a lovely square with a bar just next door where you can sit outside and watch the world go by! The room was very small with a noisy air conditioning unit outside our window.
Location and cost Not a 3 star hotel; kind of shabby
Location is fantastic... very small room and poor furniture (open and small closet)
Location A disco started next door at midnight continuing until until about five in the morning.It was impossible to sleep the staff were useless saying that they have had this problem before and have had to call the police.Never again would we stay here.I Am surprised that no other guests have said this before.
I liked that our room had a balcony. We arrived at 11.30am and as our room was not ready was asked to come back at 1.00pm...when we arrived back it was still not ready which was a tiny bit annoying, however they still let us place our luggage in the room which was all we needed as we were going out.
The position of this hotel is excellent. It is adjacent to the Tourist Office, within walking distance of shops and restaurants and trams also.
Fantastic location - right in the heart of the city and very close to restaurants, shops, theatre.
friendliness of staff, decoration of the rooms, cleanliness, excellent location in center of town, pedestrian street, nice breakfast....everything was perfect!!
Friendly staff in this small hotel. Very close to the main shopping strip, restaurants and tourist places. You can take the tram to and from the station with only a few minutes' walk. My room was smallish, but good. The hotel is an old building so rooms are not large. Good value. Breakfast is a croissant and a half baguette with various jams and good coffee - whether it is good value is debatable, but it is probably par for the course. Not much really, but there is no lift (elevator). Help was offered to me to carry my luggage upstairs but I didn't need it. .
The way the room was decorated was very pretty and fun. It was clean and well-presented. A comfortable and economic use of the space. They didn't have information on where to catch the express airport bus when I asked. It didn't seem like it should be an unusual question. Also there was no summary information in the room itself outlining breakfast time, check out time, access to internet, key phone numbers... There was something on the back of the door but only breakfast times I think.
Convenient location, recently remodeled decor, hallway/stairway under renovation (a work in progress) no work was done during our stay, so noise was not an issue. Beds could be larger, and higher quality, but for the money it was fair.
