Recent guest reviews
I stayed at Appart’city while on a tour round Europe, it was one of the best accommodations that we stayed in! It was modern, clean, quiet and the staff were very friendly. The facilities in the room (a mini kitchen area) didn’t take up to much room within the apartment which was great! The washing machine and tumble dryer facilities downstairs were also great and to expensive to use! Definitely would recommend to travellers who want to have a break from your typical busy cramped hostels!
I am currently staying at this appart hotel, I checked in October 19 for 3 nights, checking out October 22. I arrived arround 12noon and they let me store my bags, telling me I could not check in early, check in is 3pm. Fair enough! I came back at 430 and was given a room that is old, tired, dingy and dark, not at all like the nice bright pictures on their website...my room has dusty baseboards and carpet, chipped particle board, scuffed walls, dirty phone, and old appliances and furniture. Internet was weak/ not working until I went down and was given a router...if they have routers why not have them in the room, rather than making me go down and ask? The tap water smells funny... The bathroom shower stall has mould in the corners and smells very musty. There is also a light bulb missing above the bathroom vanity. When I called to ask for a new bulb they sent up a handy man who rang the bell and then tried to enter without waiting for me to open the door and let him in.. when I opened the door he had his key already in there trying to let himself in! When I firmly told him how inappropriate that was he pointed his finger at me and argued back that he couldn't hear if I had answered him because of the hallway vacuum, but I had to remind him that regardless of hearing me or not, he should wait to be let in, and seeing as I called in the request 5 minutes ago, obviously I'm here waiting. He tried to argue more but I told him I didn't want to hear it, I want to make my point which is don't enter a guest room until you're let in, then he said something under his breath in french, which I couldn't understand but the tone was rude and disrespectful. After a few minutes trying to change the bulb, he said it's an electrical wiring problem. I said forget it because I wanted him out and because I've given up on this place. The towel and bed linens are clean, and they do respond quickly when I call for maintainence, and I know it is a self cater accommodation not a luxury hotel, but overall this is a poor experience :(
Spent just a weekend in Bordeaux. I was pleased with my friend with apartment. It was clean, got fridge and mini kitchen in the room. The staff was very friendly and helpful too. As well it was easy to reach city center even by walk...
About a 30 minute walk into town which was great, plenty of parking nearby. The room was kind of basic and dull, the bed was clean, the bathroom only had a shower with no light in it, it was quite dark but with the curly hair in the tiles in the bathroom was probably a good job! We didn't try breakfast, looked a bit like a hostel kind of set up, paper plates and plastic cutlery! There are better out there!
Stayed overnight on route to a family wedding. The good - hotel was very accommodating of the late arrival and need for an extra hour to allow child to rest, hence service mark was high The bad - tap water when ran smelled of sulphur, very basic set-up with ok beds. The ugly - food was disgusting and the corners of the room full of dirt and dust. Whilst close to a shop and the local tram station I expected better for the cost.
This is for students / young people who has no other requirements than to get some sleep at night. No service and not much outside either. We paid a very high price on our visit, but if you get a discounted prices then you survive. Easy to get to city center using the tramway. For sure you will forget about the room very soon. Typically Ikea style and since we are above 60 then we for sure will never stay at an Appart hotel again!
Basic accommodation with a small kitchen area. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. Parking is in a public garage next door (that is before you get to the hotel entrance). You need to advise the hotel in advance. There is no wifi in the room – only downstairs in the tiny overcrowded reception. The hotel is located a few km from downtown – too far to walk. The tramway is about a 5 minute walk away and with it you can get to the centre in less than 20 minutes. Tickets can be bought at the tram stop. The service in the hotel is non-existent. We booked quite far in advance and had the standard rate. When we arrived the rooms were selling for half price on major hotel sites.
I was in this hotel for a 10-day business trip and all I can tell is that I had better experiences... The rooms have view to the cemetery, so it's not the best view...I stayed in the first floor, and considering that this January the weather was extremely cold in Bordeaux, the heating system in the room was not enough. Everyday in the morning, before leaving, I had to leave the heating system at the max to have a warm room at the evening...and the heating system in the bathroom didn't even work. The service...during this 10-days visit, my room was cleaned once! I had to ask to change the towels and I had to request more toilet paper... Besides all of this, there are good points: the refrigerator, the stove, the heater for the water and the microwave was a plus. The internet was also not so bad for an hotel. The breakfast (included) was good and diverse. The receptionists were always kind and quick to solve any issue.
Cute, big room, fully equip kitchen, clean, polite staff with a nice patio on the first floor. There is no room service, but wouldn't you be ready to pay a little less and make your own bed like an adult :) The only problem is that, as other, my computer was not able to log in on their wi-fi despite renting the hotel router.
We have stayed here a few times and it is good, basic and reasonably priced. On this trip, the wifi wasn't working, which seemed to be an ongoing problem and really matters if you're trying to work. The apartment we had was clean, well-equipped and quiet. the aircon worked. The staff in the evening and morning were lovely, really friendly and helpful. Bordeaux centre is a few stops on the tram from Ravinies (the nearest stop, two minutes walk) and parking outside the hotel was free provided we left before 9, which we did.
