Bordeaux is a flat city, so no effort is needed to walk. We liked the hotel's breakfast, surprising in both quality and quantity. The rooms are remodelled following the new chain style, although this renewal has been made more quickly than in Spain and here it wins. The size, for a couple, is perfect for a four-day break. Our room was on the last floor and the view, as you can see from the photos was magnificent. however, the air conditioner did not get cool enough, and parking is in little tight squares so try to arrive early. In any case, a quiet hotel, which gives easy access to anywhere in the old part of Bordeaux, with good breakfast, perfect for exploring the city.
