We had rooms 106 & 108 for a 4 night stay. The Hotel is a short walking distance from the station and next to the Ibis with the green sign. When leaving the station turn right and keep to the right. It is well located for the City Centre and about 15/20 mins walk along the river or a short tram ride. We took Tram No. 1 from outside the airport to the station. It cost 1.5 euros and takes about an hour. The express bus is 20 mins faster but costs 7 euros each! This is a very nice and comfortable hotel. The staff are very friendly and polite and the rooms have probably been refurbished in recent years although a bit on the small side, Room 108 is on the corner and has quite nice views towards the station. The views from 106 are towards a ramp leading up to the station and not so nice. Breakfast looked fine although we used the cafes and restaurants opposite the station for about 5 euros each. There are also plenty of facilities within the station itself. Being fairly close to the station there will inevitably be some noise from outside but the double glazing worked well and the air con was effective. The free wi-fi worked reasonably well. We would definitely book this hotel again if we returned to Bordeaux. For our hire car, we used Sixt which is located on a depot on the other side of the bridge (approached from the very far end of station) and is located with all the other car hire firms, Unusually, the staff there were very friendly too. Not what you usually expect!
In summary, we would definitely book this hotel again if we were return to Bordeaux. less
