Tucked away out of sight, behind the understated facade of an eighteenth century mansion, is the Hotel Cardinal an elegant house made up of 10 personalised suites, where every guest can feel at home and enjoy complete privacy. The Hotel Cardinal reveals a personality of its own, enriched with a unique atmosphere and a new interpretation of classic catering codes. Luxurious materials, such as velvet, brass and marble, are combined with contemporary furniture for a warm and cosy atmosphere. Ideally situated in the historic centre of Bordeaux, an area which has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Hotel Cardinal is a hidden gem, offering a fortress of calm and escapism for its occupants. Every morning, we will serve you a luxury breakfast (white tablecloths, dressage on the plate) in the private and the elegant setting of your suite, consisting of fresh and seasonal products, selected and prepared with the utmost care.

Centrally located boutique hotel. I stayed in the Suite Muriac on the ground level. The room was well-appointed and very quiet. To get to the room, you pass through a small courtyard which felt like my private patio. I appreciated the personal touches - chocolates left in the room each evening and a handwritten note from the staff. I can’t compliment the front desk to housekeeping personnel enough for their wonderful service and making sure our stay was a great experience. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Absolutely wonderful experience. We had a prestige suite - lovely decor, great layout with two shower rooms, toilet, dining, sitting room and separate bedroom. Great height making it all feel airy and light. Very clean. Great touches in the object/art. The kitchenette was perfect for doing breakfast/ snacks - but if you want, the hotel can do these for you. Each day/ night - little treats and kind messages added to the personal experience. The hotel is perfectly located so you can explore (for example, the art museum next to it is great to see art progression through the ages) - and then return and relax - perfect for both, We also stayed for one night at the intercontinental as part of our trip - but we preferred the cardinal. We hope to return!

We came here after a bad experience at another hotel in Bordeaux and instantly felt welcome! Nice, friendly and professional service! The room/suite was also great: nicely decorated, clean and with all the necessary amenities. There was also a small kitchenette and a coffee machine which was greatly appropriated. When we got home from dinner there was some nice chocolate and a handwritten note waiting for us - small gestures that make you happy. The hotel is well located next to the beautiful cathedral and at walking distance to sights, shops and restaurants. Can highly recommend!

Great boutique hotel, walking distance from the centre of town, main attractions, restaurants & main shopping street. Yet in a supremely quiet street. Staff are fantastic. Warm, and very personal, not at all a major brand chain type good service, but real proper personal touch service. From handwritten personalized notes daily to custom timings for breakfast in your room, it's amazing. We got a suite, supremely comfortable, small dining table, small kitchenette, well stocked, and cofnrotsble so far chairs. It doesn't offer much views so if youre looking to stay in the room all day long types... Maybe not the best for you. But why you would come to Bordeaux to stay in anyway? :)
