Hotel Mercure Bordeaux Centre Gare Saint Jean

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is an easy to find hotel in Bordeaux with parking that is easy to find, easy to access and quite rarely in Spain actually has space to park your car in. The reception staff are multi lingual and very helpful. The room we had was large well equipped and very comfortable. the bar and restaurant staff were friendly and although the menu is quite limited the food was better than I expected. If in Bordeaux I would definitely stay here again

Close to Saint Jean railway station, but not NEXT to it. Count on a 5-minute walk to reach it. On the other hand, the hotel is situated in a quite area. Staff is attentive and helpful. The rooms are spacious but need renovation.

We chose this hotel because of the location and we were not disappointed. The hotel was clean and adequate for our needs. The reception staff were always helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was Ok but nothing out of the ordinary but it got me started each day. However the hot water was not hot so did not draw the tea, which is a problem if you are a tea drinker. We liked the fact we could open a window and let some fresh air into the room. Tram is right outside to travel into the old city or it is a easy walk. I would stay again.

The hotel is just outside the city centre, which makes its significantly quieter than some of the hotels closer to the old town. The hotel is an easy tram ride or walk from the Bordeaux St. jean train station or into the city centre, The tram only costs 1.50 Euro and runs every couple of minutes so you never need to wait for long. There is plenty of space if you have big bags. We stayed in a terrace room which was well appointed and spacious. The terrace overlooked an inner courtyard of some trees and a vegetable garden, The terrace was a lovely place to sit and relax. The only downside was people could smoke on the terrace. As non-smokers this was a significant detraction of our ability to use and enjoy the space or have fresh air come in from the door. Although we know smoking laws a much more relaxed in Europe than Australia it really does detract from the enjoyment of the space. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable and the room was very quiet. We went outside of tourist season and although the hotel appeared to be more suited for French business travelers, we found the staff to be very friendly and welcoming, which was very pleasing, We would recommend the hotel to anyone who wants to have easy access to the train station and the city center and those who enjoy a comfortable bead and sleep.

I had some medication and cologne disappear from my room one day. It was reported to reception who apologised (and who at all times were pleasant and helpful) I should have taken notice of another reviewer mentioning that the rooms don't gave a safe..... The A/C had been switched off by the hotel which wasn't great given that it was 25 degrees + on a couple of days The room otherwise was fine. Plenty of storage. Bathroom good. One of the bedside lights didn't work but that wasn't a major issue Didn't eat in the restaurant or use the bar so cant comment about those As usual the acid test is would I go back. No

We stayed overnight as we had an early train to catch. The hotel was adequate but the restaurant was closed. The staff were professional and efficient. The room was clean and adequate for our needs. being close to the station the area is not up market, but it is 10 minutes by tram to the city centre.

Hotel is close to St Jean station. It was an easy journey from the airport to this Mercure Hotel by public transport. Hotel conveniently situated for the tram and also for walking to the city of Bordeaux. Comfortable room and enjoyable breakfast. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. We arrived early due early morning flight and as the room was ready we were allowed to check in. The receptionist (unfortunately did not get her name to say thankyou) then showed us on the map best places to visit, how to get there etc. All in all, an enjoyable stay.

We stayed a few days in Bordeaux visiting the city and we booked in this hotel a standard room.This four stars hotel is situated nearby the train station Saint Jean, max.5 min.walk or one stop by tram. It is a very clean place, rooms are the same, quiet and discreet.Staff is kind and profy. We have had bed and breakfast service.There is a nice little bar in the lobby and a terace nearby the restaurant.Food is very good and various.From the hotel you can take a 15-20 min. walk to the old city center or you can take the tram just in front of the hotel.I'm thankfull about this hotel and I'll recomend it anytime.

We stayed one night on our way south. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the staff were very helpful and patient. As the restaurant is closed at the weekend we had to go out for dinner, however as the tram stop is just round the corner this was not a problem.( see review of Ottoman restaurant) Having secure underground parking was also a bonus in a major city.

i asked the best way to walk to the centre in the beginning of evening, reception recommended by the waterside, i have to say i was scared there and felt unsafe. Hotel was silent, clean, i have to say I Loved the Shower, any kudos for that, it was wide enough, nice water, nice warm, not TINY as I would expect in France. The train station saint jean was difficult for me, the machines etc all difficult, if you are planning to get in line for hel at the ticket office, plan 30 minutes extra. When you finish you can be sure no more trains are going for quite a while, not so much train in there.. low interval, would not recommend it. The Trams hoever are Exellent! I used the B and C line I could actually unerstand all again, what a relief! Needed a bit of help at the machine though but fortunately a man helping for change was directly present :) I wish they where in the sation also :)) i didnt like the city, many was broken dirty old nothing seemed to be maintained a bit It wa s a depressing city for me I wont return if I wont have to.
