Where to stay in Bordeaux

Most hotels in Bordeaux sit conveniently located a stone's throw away from the train station. Look to Quinconces Square and Gambetta Square for high-end hotels. Those who prefer more budget-friendly accommodations may want to seek out a youth hostel--a relatively recent addition to the city. To secure a spot here, make sure to book ahead of time. In addition to hotels and hostels, choose from guest rooms in a typical Bordeaux house, or a family-friendly beachside campsite.

  • Two main halls cover the permanent gallery here. One side being much more impressive than the other. Covers some famous artists from Delacroix to Matisse. You can cover that collection in an hour, a c...  more »
  • Right in the centre set in a nice park setting. A south wing and north wing to visit. One with 1800 art and the other with 1900 art.  more »
  • Art collections can be overwhelming This one offers a comparatively small collection in two galleries and this helps make the artwork more palatable. Our high spot was the sculpture of Mozart's death;...  more »

  • not large but interesting. not many works of the big-name artists that we see in like orsay or louvre, but there are indeed some inspiring pieces. not crowded, so it's a good place to sit down and study just one certain work. and very lovely staffs! the old gentleman at the entrance of the north wing even said thank you to me in my mother tongue. but well, it's true that not all works there are of top quality, the problems of several are obvious (one arm much longer than the other in a classical painting, for example). the architecture itself and the garden are beautiful though.
  • I've never been that close to a Rembrandt before (well, now "school of Rembrandt", actually) - and not under glass. No-one breathing down your neck, either. There are some small Manets and a few other big names. Non-flash photography is permitted. I went on a Sunday and it was free.
  • Loved the exhibition. Beautiful paintimgs and sculptures. It is divided in two buildings. Make sure you keep your ticket to show in the other building.
  • A rich collection of Arts from various period with a reasonable ticket price. I love the Ophelia painting.
  • Small for a museum but well worth a visit!
