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.

  • What I liked most was the video animation on the story of Aquitaine, from English to French. Great moment of patriotism for a French.
  • Stunning gate by the river, interesting as it was built with weaponry pointing inwards to attack the locals rather than protect the city!
  • What can I say...its the view from our appartment, and both the monument and the square where its located are beautiful examples of the noble stone and homogeneity of Bordeaux. The towers that crown the tower give it a fairy-tale aura, and the lighting at night is also super pretty. One of the highlights in Bordeaux, in my opinion.
  • Awesome building/thing to see while in Bordeaux, definitely worth it!
  • Nice, if big stone gate houses are your thing.
