After travelling 24+ hours we arrived. Entry tucked in next to an adjoining bar which spills out onto the pavement. Great location, central with many eateries near-by, supermarket down the corner and easy walk to tram & buses. Staff friendly & helpful despite us having no French. Very affordable: check out B&B package via hotel website. Triple room for 2...

I was looking for a good value hotel in central Bordeaux for one night. I couldn't have chosen better. Staff were fantastic, room was clean and simple and the location fantastic. Would recommend highly for anyone wanting to explore Bordeaux on a budget. Also, I needed a very long document printing urgently and the staff were so helpful and did...

This hotel has one big advantage - location. Rooms are compact. No drawers in rooms - two answers when we asked for some. French don't use drawers (Really!) and more creditably People don't stay long enough to use them. D'accord for 2 nights. We stayed 5. Breakfast for ten euros is not worth the money. Tinned fruit. The markets we...

Very pleasant 3 night stay at the Hotel Continental. Very clean room, not luxurious but very central location and surprising quiet at night. Good value breakfast and ideally situated just 50 metres from Place Gambetta for bus route 1 to the airport.

This is not a luxury hotel, so don't expect to be waited on hand and foot. Nor will you find incredibly luxurious space, but, now, it is clean, for a small fee, you get a very nice breakfast buffet featuring juices, coffees, fruits, meats, cereals, breads and yogurts.The beds are comfortable.

This is an excellent hotel for the money. Our room was clean, bright, and quiet. The hotel is perfectly situated. The staff were helpful and always available. No complaints at all. Our room was a bit bigger and brighter because it had two twin beds (a "king" size) and another twin in the corner.

Ideal location for the shops, theatre, restaurants, cathedral etc. Public transport is Bordeaux's secret bargain. Clean modern trams - a single ride is just €1.40. The bus from the airport was the same price, takes about 35-40 minutes and drops off at Place Gambetta, a 1 minute walk away. You can follow the route using the onboard route map and...
