Good location

Staff were very helpful and pointed to areas of interest. Ensured we were comfortable and asked if they could do anything more. Was impressed by their attentiveness.

Comfortable hotel in a nice quiet location.

Posted Sep 28, 2017
Pros: Great location, clean and spacious rooms, and friendly staff.
Location: Central location (opposite a supermarket which is handy). All main areas and attractions are within easy walking distance. Tram stop just outside too.
We have stayed in numerous Novotels and this one was great as always. Exactly what you expect really - comfortable, spacious and clean rooms in a nice quiet location. Only a short walk to reach all the main areas with restaurants and a supermarket nearby. Friendly staff. I would stay here again.

Good hotel close to the city

Posted Sep 26, 2017
Pros: Staff helpful, room clean with complimentary water
Cons: A bar breakfast menu would be helpful to understand what was available rather than respond to 'what do you want'
Location: Bordeaux is a fabulous city with great architecture. Walking tour, bus tour and the cite du vin are all recommended.
Very helpful staff in a clean and pleasant hotel. Close to the city and adjacent to the tram and bus lines. The 1+ bus (which costs €1.60 and takes 45 min) for a journey from the airport stops 200m from the hotel and is highly recommended.

Great value close to centre and tram links

Posted Aug 1, 2017
Pros: See experience.
Cons: For the money, difficult to think of anything. Of course it doesn't have a lot of character but you can't expect that in a Novotel.
Location: Covered under "experience".
The hotel is five minutes walk to two tram lines that take you close to every tourist destination. 10 minutes to twenty minutes walk from the hotel will cover 90% of what most tourists will visit. The main art gallery Musee des Beaux arts is just around the corner, the Cathedral St Andre not much further, the main shopping streets maybe ten to 15 minutes walk away), Room was spacious and clean. Despite the hotel seeming fairly busy including many families and at least one coach party, the room was one of the quietest we've stayed in (do they keep families apart from other guests?). The bar and restaurant are budget hotel standard (but the former at least efficient with a bell to attract bar staff ... something more expensive hotels could learn from). But why eat in the hotel when cheaper better alternatives are nearby (see for example the Bistro du Musee five minutes away).

Ideal for tourism or business

A practical as opposed to romantic or exotic hotel, close to the centre and main sites and an easy bus journey from the airport. Good restaurant, comfortable rooms.
