The hotel is very conveniently located only a hundred or so meters away from Place de la Comédie where the main streets of Bordeaux converge and hence in a short walking distance from a lot of attractions, restaurants, shops and the Garonne river. Also, tram line B has a stop in just around the corner from the Rue Martignac entrance. For those looking for a decent supermarket, there's a Carrefour at the nearby Marché des Grands Hommes shopping center and a Monoprix at the Saint-Christoly shopping center a bit farther.

The Club Comfort room was not that large, but there was still enough space for two people to simultaneously navigate comfortably. The basic features and amenities like the air conditioning, the bathroom facilities, the bed and the mattresses and pillows were of good quality even though the amount of storage space (wardrobe, bedside tables) was very limited. Our room was facing to an isolated inner yard and there was no noise from the street at all.

There is no restaurant in the hotel, only a cocktail lounge, but considering the offering in the vicinity, this should be no issue. A pricey French-style breakfast was served in the small lounge, however, it seemed to be more or less comparable to the offering available in the neighborhood.

Check-in and check-out were completely smooth. Since we arrived a couple of hours before the check-in time (15:00), our luggage was taken in the storage and once we returned, it was already waiting for us in the room. Check-out only took a moment, and the receptionist already had a phone in her hand to order the taxi before I asked. The staff in general was very helpful and they were fluent enough in English.

A amazing location in Bordeaux although expensive and customer service wasn't the best. A number of people including us didn't go back for the breakfast because of the poor quality, lack of service/care for guests. We weren't prepared to pay 5 euros for an omelette or another 5 euros for a glass of orange juice on top of the 17+ euros for the breakfast they offer. We were the one table at breakfast yet needed to go and ask reception for help to get someone to serve us coffee which was very poor quality. Would have appreciated some service or care factor. We ended up searching for local options rather than struggle with this every morning. After mentioning to reception we'd like to eat elsewhere for the remainder of our trip we were met with arrogance and hostility which we didn't expect and made us feel uncomfortable for the following days (there was only one woman who treated us rudely and like we weren't welcome). Gym is very basic with no weights and poorly kept. No lights or a/c in the gym at any time of the day....even though we had requested early access to the gym on one of the days.

Room tip: Don't eat breakfast here

The hotel is modern and adequate, but I wouldn't call is great except for the location. In particular, the room was ridiculously small for a couple. Most of its space was occupied by the queen bed, and we kept bumping into each other or into the furniture while trying to walk around it. Same with a small and cramped bathroom.

The location, though great, has some drawback if you're arriving by car, as we did. The hotel doesn't have a parking. The nearest underground parking is some 400 m away and you need to be prepared to shlep your luggage over the cobblestones over this distance. You also pay for the parking through your nose. I believe the rate is ca. 24-30 euros per 24 hours. The hotel claims to have a discount, and handed us a card to use when exiting the park. However, this system is highly complicated, and didn't work for us ("card expired"), and there was no attendant to ask for help. In the end we payed double. My advice: if arriving by car in Bordeaux, choose a different hotel outside the city center with its own parking, and use the tramways to commute.

The hotel is in the perfect location, just around the corner from the main square and main shopping area. The staff are excellent, helpful and informative. The bathroom was small but very cleverly designed, and really well finished. The bedroom was small, but we didn't spend too much time in it so it didn't matter. The bed however was a little too small, just your regular double bed. Otherwise it was a 5!

Room tip: On the first floor we noticed a few of the rooms had a small balcony overlooking the street.

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel. They have 2 locations one block from each other. The first one is next to the Intercontinental hotel and the other one is behind. I guess we got lucky and went directly to the right one. It would be helpful to make the location clearer at booking.
When you look at the Intercontinental hotel, take the street to the right. You will walk by the first location.
The room (#124) is small but ok. It was very clean. The AC worked great. We don’t really like rain showers but the bathroom was fine.
The front desk staff is very nice and they always have croissants waiting for you. They also gave us extra water on our first day as the supermarket was closed on Sunday.
There could be more English speaking channels on TV.
