Recent guest reviews

I could spend time writing a lengthy review but I will both save us time: if you cherish life, don't go there.

This place somewhat resembles a student hall of residence. The rooms have an unusually good amount of desk/eating space, and the front desk staff were young. My room was spacious, bright, comfortable, quiet, and, apart from some mold in the shower and some poorly washed cooking utensils, clean. It's about a twenty-minute walk along the river to downtown or a few minutes' tram ride. Though I have rented a better apartment for less money in Bordeaux, it still represents pretty good value for money.

We love running and walking to downtown areas and this location is just 15min walk from Bordeaux romantic area.

This apartment-hotel had basic furnishings, but very clean, well maintained, and in great condition. Amenities included digital television (HD, TNT), refrigerator, stove, and a full set of plates, cutlery, coffee pot, etc. They also had free Wifi (but see below). They also had a direct phone number to the room (free for incoming, pay for calling). The staff were very friendly. I had only two or three smaller issues: (1) As with many apartment-hotels, the hours are limited. In particular, 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 noon on Saturday, something similar on Sunday; and the reception closes at 8 p.m. on weekdays. There's a code and key card to enter at other times. My airplane was late, and I hadn't thought about calling them in advance in case my airplane was late. Be sure to call. (They didn't put their e-mail on their web site. So, call by phone.) (2) The hotel is hidden in an out-of-the-way plaza. It's only three blocks from the tram stop "Cours du Medoc". But print out a map in advance if you want to find the hotel easily. (3) I have Linux on my laptop and at work. Their free Wifi was blocking the "ssh" protocol that is commonly used for Linux. I could surf the web, but I could not connect to my work computer because they block "ssh".
