Hard to find. Directions could be better (many narrow one way streets). Our room (the one with the typewriter) was very cold and austere. If you are into concrete and steel, this is the place for you. A few scatter rugs would not go amiss. The toiletries were very nice (L'Occitane) Also, breakfast was austere and one of the most...

What a great find in the bohemian Chartrons- only a 20 min walk from the centre of Bordeaux and with a tram stop at the end of the road. There is parking within the establishment. Bridgitte, the owner was really helpful and flexible on arrival times and provided a lovely & diverse selection for breakfast each morning. The rooms are...

This is a tiny B&B with three rooms. It's beautifully done - very tasteful and understated. Sizeable room with a tiny terrace. Decent bathroom area with polished concrete surfaces. Large comfy bed. Tad dark possibly but that didn't bother us. Very quiet. Brigitte, the owner, makes breakfast - traditional French fare - good quality and presented very well. We stayed...

We had a great stay for 2 nights at L'Esprit des Chartrons in the Dune room. It is well-located in a quaint shopping district / trendy area, very close to the tram and the water - about 15 min walk into the old part of the city. The rooms are clean and well-appointed with small outdoor space for each and...

Very welcoming place just behind the quai des Chartrons with a warm welcome from the host - makes l'esprit des Chartrons a great place for a stay in Bordeaux. We would not hesitate to go back there! We liked a lot having breakfast (every day a bit different) on the terrace in the inner courtyard. The room was charming and...

A great place to use for a stop over in Bordeaux. Easy access to everything - city centre reached by a lovely walk along the river with lots to see and a stop at one of the waterfront bars. Great breakfast in a very lovely atrium area. Owner very helpful - off-street parking a real bonus.
