We stopped for one night in Bordeaux and we are very pleased we chose this hotel. It is in the city centre within walking distance from restaurants/bars . The room is quite small but very clean (thank you Khadija!). We were extremely pleased with this hotel and will definitely stay here again!
When arriving via cab from the train station we were dropped off at the "main hotel" only to find out our room (twin room) was actually at the adjacent property just a little way down the street and around the corner. Our room was not ready on arrival (approx 3pm) however since we chose to sit in the lobby they seemed to hurry to finish up. Nice room with a great shower. The breakfast was good with a very nice selection. Loved the location close to the main square, tram line, etc., yet tucked away on a side street. The highlight was hearing the music from the square!
The location just behind the Grand Hotel could not be better. Convenient for shops, trams,river etc. We got a bit lost trying to find it getting off the airport bus at Meriadeck as it is not straightforward for a stranger. The directions say to walk past the cinema which you cannot see from the bus stop. Our de luxe room was a good size with 5 foot bed (had wrongly assumed a 6 foot would come with de luxe) with a huge new shower room. Coffee maker in room with minimal items on tray ( 1 tea bag ) and no kettle for tea. Always a gripe for English people ! The breakfast buffet was very good with a hot option as well as continental,and eggs to boil yourself. There was smoked salmon to go with the scrambled eggs. All staff encountered were lovely, so helpful. Tram line B is near the hotel which made getting to our cruise from Quai Chartrons very easy. It is 3 stops and 1.60 euros each. We would stay here again.Bordeaux is a lovely city with friendly people.
Stayed 10 days in total. Very nice rooms, clean and well looked after. Lovely, attentive staff, this hotel is in a seriously great location, close to attractions, tram stops and shops. I’ll be back, loved it that much!
I must admit that when I made the online reservation for this hotel, I was less than excited since I'm not fond of chain hotels. Having stayed just one night at the Etche-Ona, I now count this hotel among my very favorites. This is not a "prestigious" hotel, yet everything about it was just perfect. The location, the wonderful staff, the tastefully modern guest room and public spaces, the breakfast buffet -- everything was perfect in every way. The location could not be better. Directly across the street from the Grand Theatre and in the heart of the centre ville, yet tucked away in a quiet, side street, the hotel is within walking distance of lots of tourist attractions, including several really good, really popular restaurants. There is a pedestrian zone close by with lots of shops, and the waterfront with its beautiful "miroir d'eau" is minutes away. Absolutely perfect location. The staff is among the nicest and friendliest I've encountered. In addition to helping me with questions about restaurants, taxis, and the like, the women at the reception desk went out of their way to engage me in conversation, which I really appreciated since I was traveling alone. I really loved my room. It was modern and spare and spotlessly clean. Good natural lighting, too. The bathroom was more than adequate, and I was delighted to find two wash cloths! And the shower worked equally well as a handheld and stationery shower. Complimentary bottles of water were a nice touch. The breakfast buffet was ample: yogurt, fruit, scrambled eggs, hard cooked eggs, sausage, smoked salmon, a variety of bread and cheese, juices, and hot beverages. Nice presentation. I would come here again and again, and I would recommend this hotel heartily to any traveller.
Very nice boutique hotel with some notable pluses and minuses. Excellent location within easy walking distance to major highlights including the tourism center, restaurants, the opera and associated plaza, and upscale shopping. Very convenient to the tram which is convenient to getting around. Excellent staff, wonderful full buffet breakfast. On the negative side, there is no in-house parking. One must drop their bags off in the entry way off a narrow alleyway, then drive to a parking garage and walk back. Not too burdensome unless it is raining. The lift will only accommodate two people and two bags. Negotiating the parking garage (including payment) is not straightforward. No bar in the restaurant! The standard room is quite small--two people with two suitcases fills the room. Bathroom is excellent, especially the shower set up. The breakfast room is small and cramped, the chairs are too big for the tables. Breakfast staff are very helpful, and when too crowded, a sister hotel/restaurant is right around the corner (note, be sure to confirm which Best Western you a registered for). All-in-all a solid 3-star hotel. Would I stay here again? Probably, now that I know the drawbacks, but in an upgraded room.
Our room was nice but small. The basin was wrong designed so there was water all over the place, very annoying. Nice france breakfast, where you can boil your own egg. The location makes up for everthing!
It's located in the heart of main area, the opera, which enables walking distance to the entire city. Room is nice and clean. Nice staff at reception who are helpful and pleasant. Just there isn't much space in the public area but overall it's a very nice place to stay. FYI, ringing the bell to get inside is needed during 2200-0600. Think it's for security control, yet I feel like rushing back to Dom during childhood.
As soon as you come in, you feel welcome. The service is excellent, friendly and warm. You will be explained what you can visit, enjoy in the city. You have plenty of space in the room, bathrooms are modern and really pleasant. Every corner is tidy and congratulations for the Rituals products!
This, when we eventually `ratuionalised' its' location was a super choice. Originally 2 old houses were combined, accounting for a somewhat `eclectic' layout -- reception on the first floor; need to use room keycard to get lift functioning - but caught them 'on the hop' when 6 of us were stuck in the lift for over an hour very late one night. Hotel is in a small passage off one of the main streets, just round the corner from the Opera and round a facing corner from the main shopping street, rue St.Catherine. Didn't have the `expensive' breakfast on advice from other guests, but lots of eating places around. Location is perfect for sightseeing, most place within a few minutes walk, or it is very close to a tram stop - BTW one can buy a tram ticket which interchanges with the ferry boat if you fancy a `sail' or a simple trip to the Wine Museum ( a `must' though at 20 Euros, somewhat expensive. There is a restaurant with spectacuar views there ( 10th floor) but the food was disappointing. Much better value at the Ground Floor snack bar. Lots and lots of good eating places close by , (ask receptiion for recommendations ) mainly off r. St.Catherine and in 2 squares. Try Le Chien de Pavlov for a different take on dishes - amazing what the chef/patron can do with an egg, or some duck. Pity though they lacked knowledge of their wine list, but certainly a gastronomic experience at a reasonable ( for France) price. The rooms was reasonably goos. Alittle on the small side and lacking some of the extra toiletries; also restricting the amount of coffee available by the in room machine, although the staff were helpful in rectifying omissions and extra helpful using their computer to confirm flights and make reservations Bordeaux is certainly a place worth visiting for a few days and I would certainly recommend this hotel and stay there in future.
