My husband and I chose to stay at this Hotel for a two night stay in Bordeaux after reading all the good reviews on Tripadvisor. We caught the Number One bus from the airport, and got off at the Gambetta stop, which is clearly shown in the bus. We asked the bus driver how to get to Gambetta Square and she kindly gave us directions. Once we were in Gambetta Square, you could see the old Porte Dijeaux Gate and it's easy to get to the Hotel from there. Walk down Rue Porte Dijeaux with your back to the gate, and Rue du Temple where the Hotel is, is on the left after a short walk.
The Hotel is in a beautiful historic building, and we were lucky to be given a room on the third floor which had a pretty juliette balcony. Thank you Anna at reception! The view over the roofs was lovely.
The room was spacious for a European city Hotel, and the bathroom was very modern and stylish. The reception staff and the staff at breakfast were all so helpful and their English was very good.
The breakfast was excellent, fresh fruit, yogurt and juices, cereal, and hot and cold savoury items. There were croissants and fresh bread, and the most amazing cakes, chocolate, lemon and apple cakes, all delicious.
We loved the location of the Hotel, it was an easy walk to all the main historic sites.
We would certainly stay here again if we came back to Bordeaux. less
