"This is for the outdoor cafe facing the Grand Theater -- Forget it"
This is one of those places located in a prime location that will always be full. The hotel is expensive, and the dining room is pricey. We just wanted a snack, so we sat out on the terrace. In every way our experience was ordinary, the food, the service. We had foie gras, cheese, bread, and wine. Classic. I asked if they had St. Agur, a creamy blue cheese and the waiter said they had something even better. When the plate came with no blue cheese among the three selections I pointed it out. If it were your restaurant, wouldn’t you go and get some blue cheese because of the error' The waiter just shrugged. My citron presse (fresh squeezed lemon in water) did not come with the customary sugar, so I drank it sour. The French fries were soggy and not crisp at all, the way I like them. I am a tough reviewer of upscale places. I expect them to live up to their billing. There are a couple of other more typical cafes also on the central square here. You might want to try them instead. Our snack was more expensive than our best meal to date (although soon to be eclipsed by some fantastic meals in Bordeaux). So, if you want to be a tourist, go ahead, come here, spend the bucks. It’s vacation. Not me.
"From terrible to worse "
Honestly even if the management try to make our stay better the 4th day , it is still not at the standard of the pricing - You will pay insanely high pricing for insanely bad services at every level and no matter what you want - The Gordon Ramsay , le pressoir , restaurant does not allow us to seat together ( 9 people ) and every other service like the breakfast is inefficient to the extend that we need to go out to have our breakfast- I have a lot more to say but I don’t want to waste one more minute to talk about this place -
I can't say enough about this hotel. It was recommended to us by American Express and from beginning to end, we were so happy with our choice. The concierge and the wine concierge were amazing to deal with in planning a wine tour and for booking local restaurants, although the top-notch one in hotel looked devine. Breakfast was an incredible buffet selection and really catered to kids as well. The room that we had was quiet and gorgeous with a marble bathroom to die for. Overlooked the Opera house and courtyard. Valet parking was a bit pricey, but cheaper if you self-park nearby. There was so much to see in Bordeaux and we only had 2 days. Will definitely go back and stay here!
Couldn’t be more central to see bordeaux but rooms are small and dated unless you really splash out and get a room with a view. Didn’t th8nk it was worth it and i was there for work Bar looks great and drinks and service both excellent but dear me no AC means you swelter so you don’t stay long Didn’t try to restaurant Concierge told me best bars and places to eat and he was spot on Car parking all valet Odd hotel but grea location
"Outstanding hotel in Bordeaux center."
Outstanding high quality hotel in downtown Bordeaux close to the opera house with tons of restaurants and shops. Easy walking distance to most stuff. The rooms and interior are of the highest quality, very clean and well kept. The staff is helpful and friendly. Dont miss the fantastic breakfast served till 1030am. Traffic is a little rough around the area but thats to be expected.
