This was the 2nd time we'd stayed at the Continental & found it just as welcoming as last year. The hotel is reasonably priced, in a very handy location for everything, rooms are clean & comfortable (French city sized so don't expect big), breakfast is very pleasant & staff are most helpful. The free cheese & wine is a lovely...

The best thing of this hotel is its location, very quiet zone, but near (400mt) the bus stop from airport and in a central position of the city with restaurants, bars and some nightlife (place gambetta), also shops within the Place des Grandes Hommes. We could take a walk without cars in the Cours de LIntendance and 15 minutes after...

Great location, wonderful staff, discounted parking in city garage. Wine & cheese in the afternoon was delightful. The salon where this is served is beautiful, but tiny, and very little seating in lobby, but the wine and cheese were plentiful and the staff very courteous.

I've booked a room for two nights in november 2016 for a business visit. The room was big enough, clean, well organized and with a wide bathroom. Breakfast was good with warm brioches, cereals, yogurt and also ham, salami. Staffs were very friendly, funny and gentle. Great position in the city centre, easily reached by the airport (bus 1 and...

This hotel is in an ideal position for exploring beautiful Bordeaux. It was the 1st hotel on a biking trip from Bordeaux to Biarritz. It was certainly bike friendly and had very pleasant staff.

Good hotel location in centre of the city. Visited with another two couples,with two of our rooms on the 4 floor with balconies overlooking the street and rooftops which was good.

This hotel is located in the heart of beautiful Bordeaux, just off the main street and near shops, restaurants and historical sites. The rooms are comfortable, clean and not too cramped, with en suite bathrooms. The staff are very helpful, and each evening includes wine and cheese in the small common area off the lobby -- a nice touch. Breakfast...

Great location, super friendly staff, wine and cheese degustation every evening (free) and use of coffee machine (also free) in the foyer makes the Continental, Bordeaux, part of the Happy Culture chain, a great deal. On the downside, the lift is small, slow and interesting and our room didn't have a safe which meant having to bother the reception staff....
