  • One of Bordeaux's hidden gems. Good bars nearby and some very good restaurants in the square as well as two shops selling ice cream. Not far from the riverside.  more »

  • Beautiful little square in the heart of Bordeaux. Perfect for people watching. Great restaurants and bars.
  • Easy access and has many good restaurants very close to the river Garonne.
  • Very central place and busy location where good food meets architecture.
  • Good bars and restaurants surround this beautiful square. On a sunny day it is so relaxed, but even in the rain it is beautiful

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.
