My wife and I finished our cruise at Bordeaux and decided to stay two days in this beautiful city before returning home. After reading many positive reviews, we decided to choose Best Western Grand Hotel Francais. What a great decision we made. This was part of our wedding anniversary so requested a quiet room on a level floor when I booked at this hotel. When we checked in, a smiling gentleman Nicholas greeted us like old friends. The check in was easy and Nicholas had our luggage sent to our room, and furthermore he went all the way to the 4th floor to show us our room. We were happily surprised to find there was a bottle of sparkling wine in the room for our anniversary! We have stayed at many hotels but we have to say this hotel left us the most enduring and memorable memory, which was the highlight of our trip. The hotel is in a very convenient location. 2 minutes walk, you are onto one of the beautiful and busiest shopping street in the world. 10 minutes walk, you will be in a nice neighborhood with a lot of restaurants both tourists and locals go. If you are reading this email, Nicholas. my wife and I thank you again for your help during our stay at this beautiful hotel. We will recommend our son and his girl friend to stay at the Best Western Grand Hotel Francais when they plan their visit to Bordeaux. What an amazing city, this beautiful hotel and the people work there. Thank you.

Wonderful Bordeaux hotel
The hotel is in a spectacular location nearby restaurants, museums, and transit—but also quiet and well maintained. The staff was extremely helpful and genuinely bilingual. The breakfast was also superb. A great find in a wonderful city. Will stay there again next time I go to Bordeaux
