    Good

    We arrived early in the day ( 11:30am) and happily there was a room available for us . The woman at the front desk was helpful and kind and our negative comments are only a reflection of our checking out experience.

    We had an early train (5:55 am) and when we cam downstairs at 5:25am to check out, we were locked in the building with no one in sight to check us out or let us out of the building. After a 5 minute search through offices and catering areas we located a young man who then had some confusion about our bill. He wished to charge us for the room again. We explained that we had already paid and he understood but that took an additional 5 minutes and we were still locked in . He then unlocked the door and we made our train. But what if therehad been some sort of fire or emergency? The initial feeling of panic was genuinely scary.

    convenient for railway as an overnight stopping place which is out of the main noisy thoroughfare.

    Superb

    Arriving at Gare St Jean we found the proximity of the hotel to the station excellent.(so easy, a 3minute walk). The signage for the hotel was in clear view. Ideally placed for the tram which could take you anywhere in the city, yet still close to the riverside for an early jog, walk or cycle. The hotel was very quiet giving us a good nights sleep. Breakfast a little on the dear side. Staff helpful.

    We planned to be in Bordeaux for only one night, close to the railway station, and the Mercure Bordeaux Gare Saint Jean was perfect. The hotel is very well maintained and pleasant. Unfortunately the surrounding area is a little less so. Walking the less than pleasant streets can be overcome though by using the very efficient pink tram line that stops right outside the door.

    Fabulous

    Quiet location though near train station. Modern design and comfortable. Express breakfast satisfactory and quick. Car park private though charge of 10 euro is a bit expansive. Hotel provides lots of convenience to traveller, luggage storage, free wifi in room.

    Only dislike: Bad smell of cigarette in non-smoking room.

    Quiet room

    We came back at 5:00 pm and the rooms were not cleaned. Left for an hour and they were still working on one of the rooms. Also the hotel staff was not particularly friendly or helpful.

    Hotel staffs are sincere and helpfull to sort out the trouble which we had, (bad noise in a room), so despite few negatives it was not bat stay after all.

    It seems hotel has not finished the renovation, we complained the noise in our room and few broken sign etc were quite embarrassing as I was taking my cliant to there.

    Good

    The restaurant was closed throughout my stay in the afternons & evenings for what I consider flimsy excuses (weekends, public holidays). This was difficult for a family visit; had to go outside to get lunch & dinner. If you go there, don't do it on a weekend or public holiday!

    Fabulous

    The hotel needs remodeling. Lots of things are falling apart. The Restuarant needs improving. Service and selection is poor.
