Budget hotel right next to the station.

Posted Jul 3, 2014
Pros: Location to transport links
Cons: Wardrobes!!
Location: Next to station, Close to riverside. easy for tram to centre attractions
Located next to good transport links, just a few minutes by the easy to use tram from La Bourse and the centre. Close to airport bus. Small rooms but ok for those on a budget. No wardrobe in our room, just a hanger rail! Can be noisy outside but was fine for us with the window shut. helpful friendly staff. did not have breakfast. This is a cheap hotel for those just wanting to put their heads down at night, small rooms but pleasant bathroom and tea and coffee in the room. Fans and heaters to help with any hot / cold issues. Did exacly what I wanted for a couple of nights.

Small hotel with easy access to transportation.

Posted Jun 12, 2014
The hotel is directly across from the train station and is surrounded by restaurants. There is also a pharmacy around the corner. The tourist information is directly across from the hotel as are public buses and trams. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Good location

Hotel is directly across from the train station, tram and bus stops. No outside noise in mine, which faced a courtyard. Personnel very friendly and helpful.

Great location but small rooms

Posted Oct 17, 2013
Pros: Bed comfort, kettle.
Cons: Larger rooms or more floor space in them would feel less claustrophobic. More teabags in room please!
Location: Next to st jean gare, perfect for tram to all of city sights, short walk to the river and 5 min walk to bus stop for jet aeroport bus.
Staff seemed quite friendly, breakfast choice reasonable, room comfortable and clean with all reasonable amemities, inc hairdryer, fan and kettle. Slept well in a front room, I had read beforehand it can be very noisy as there are homeless people shouting outside in the night, but we never experienced thie. Window well soundproofed from the fountain outside. Downside is the rooms really small, not much room for 2 people, and we were crampt as we had 2 suitcases.

What a great find!

Posted Sep 11, 2013
Pros: location, wonderful friendly staff, good free wifi, convenient access to very inexpensive meals.
Cons: Desk chair was too low--had to pile clothes and pillow on top so I could work at the desk with my laptop.
Location: Good tram stop with convenient access to all of Bordeaux, several reasonable restaurants within a block, and train station for trips elsewhere.
I picked the hotel because of its location and price. I was very pleasantly surprised. The staff was friendly and very helpful, the wifi worked, the room was clean, and the location was great. Despite being right across from the main St. Jean train station, it was quiet and seemed very safe, with a nice secluded patio in the back. Full breakfast available for an extra charge, but most days I got a continental breakfast at shops in the train station. Best bonus: the Jetbus goes from the airport directly to the train station, which was convenient and very inexpensive. Definitely recommend it to others.

good little inexpensive hotel

Posted Sep 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
Good location next to the main train station easy to reach from the airport (1.40 euro), as many hotels in the area (which are more expensive) The hotel is not super chic but it is very good if you are on a budget and you just need a place to sleep and get some decent breakfast. The hotel stuff was excellent and incredibly helpful. Smiling all the time. The Internet in the room was very slow and not strong signal. The breakfast cheap and good. The breakfast dining room quite cozy. The noise in the street, night time might be a bit annoying, especially if it is saturday and in the early hours of the morning when everybody goes back home... drunk. So perhaps it is better asking for a room that faces the backyard. There is no lift. The carpet is quite dated, but overall excellent stay and I would book again if need to go to Bordeaux, which is a beautiful city. Tereza the concierge from Prague was very helpful.

Hello, Thank you for your comment. We changed our wifi networks so the Internet works well in all rooms. Sorry for the noise at the night but unfortunately we can do nothing against it. We can't build a lift because il would be sad to destroy our beautiful staircase. We hope to see you soon! Best regards, Isabelle and her team

Handy to train

Posted Jul 27, 2013
This hotel suited our needs with its proximity to Gare de St Jean. Noisy local bars kept us awake and there is no lift, but otherwise it is perfectly adequate.

Poor value

No air conditioning and window opened directly onto busy street outside station. 20 minutes walk from Old town. Too expensive for location without air con and without breakfast included.

Hotel was close to the train station and the trolley into the old part of town. It was also close to places to eat.
