Nice enough hotel in a fairly central locationPosted Sep 5, 2014
Pros: Location, price, very polite and helpful staff.
Cons: The rooms look a little tired
Location: Great shopping, bars, restaurants. Historical monuments. The tourist office is also close by.
This hotel is convenient if you plan on travelling to Bordeaux city centre by bus from the airport. This costs 1.50 Euro's compared to an estimated 30 Euro's or more for a cab. The buses are great and run every 10 minutes or so, highly recommended. There is a stop at Place Gambetta, a small park and about a 5 minute walk away from the hotel. The hotel is hidden down a quiet side road and is fairly unassuming inside. The staff were all incredibly helpful and knowledgeable and gave us some great advice on things to go and see and do as well as helping with directions and restaurant bookings. The room was fairly basic but clean and tidy and we had no complaints. The view was fairly uninspiring and overlooked just another section of the hotel building although I'm sure there must be other rooms with better outlooks. For the price and location I would recommend the hotel. Rue St Catherine, the main shopping street is about a 5 minute walk away, Rue St Remi (good for restaurants and bars) is about the same distance and the river is about a 10-15 minute walk. The tourist office is about 10 minutes away and useful for booking vineyard tours in addition to other general information.

Wonderful location and lovely buildingPosted Aug 27, 2014
Our room looked out over the old cinema complex and to the beautiful city buildings. Parking was close by and the room just right. Would recommend a stay here if you want to explore the city.

Perfect location for BordeauxPosted Aug 26, 2014
Pros: The cost was good considering the location and the staff were very friendly and helpful
Cons: Definitely if you stay request a room with airconditioning if it's summer. I didn't and had a fan but it wasn't enough for the heat in Bordeaux!
Location: Very close to the main centre and shopping district as well as restaurants and transport links.
I had a conference to attend at the Opera house so this was a great location to walk to and from. It was also situated amongst many shops and cafes and bus transportation to the airport

A well located, mediocre hotel.Posted Jul 15, 2014
Pros: The staff were kind and attentive.
Cons: I'm afraid the hotel needs renovation and redecoration.
Location: The location is the only distinguished aspect of this hotel. It's inside the old city, close to the liveliest streets of Bordeaux.
The building itself is charming, but the hotel seriously needs refurnishing. The receptionist was very kind to let us choose from the 3 vacant rooms, which were all small, weary, dim and lacking fresh air.

Perfectly placed hotelPosted Jun 11, 2014 on Hotels.com
We arrived at the Hotel Continental at about 11.00 am but were able to check into our room then. We asked for a quiet room and were on the 5th floor overlooking the central light well, which was not a problem. The lift however is small, and very slow-moving. It takes an age to arrive, particularly in the morning when cleaning staff are using it. We mainly used the stairs to avoid the long delay but it was a long way up! Breakfast was adequate but nothing special. The coffee machine was very slow which could lead to queues at busy times, and they rigorously enforced the time of close of service for a couple who arrived at 9.55 am and service closed at 10.00 am. The couple had to wait while the waitress checked that they could enter! There was a problem with the plumbing on Sunday morning which meant that there was no hot water which was not a problem particularly for us but might have been if it was our check out day. We requested late check out and were able to use our room until 1.00 pm at no extra charge. The wifi password and connection were not easy to log into but, with the receptionist's help, was achieved and from then on there was no problem - access throughout the hotel. Bordeaux is a beautiful city and the hotel is situated in a very convenient position to explore it all. We will recommend the Continental to friends.

Very pleasant stay at Hotel ContinentalPosted Apr 30, 2014
Pros: The breakfast was great, bed comfortable, and staff friendly.
Cons: It would be nice if they had some shampoo. There was some generic soap dispenser on the wall but no shampoo.
Location: Great central location for walking and window shopping. Lots of restaurants nearby.
I was very nervous about booking this hotel given some of the reviews. This is a perfectly fine small hotel. We stayed two nights. The staff is very nice, the room is comfortable, and they have a very good breakfast buffet. It is not fancy but it is very comfortable, clean, and quiet. It is in a great neighborhood for walking and window shopping. Very central location for staying in Bordeaux.

Nice hotel right in centre of townPosted Apr 29, 2014
The hotel staff were amazing, nothing was too much for them. They also spoke English which was a great help for me! The rooms were slightly dated and a bit warm at times, but we never had any problems. Nice breakfast to set you up for the day. Would definitely stay here again
