Reading many of the reviews before booking it seemed on the whole that this boutique hotel would tick the boxes as required, and on the whole it does.
Nice quiet location, although finding it would not be easy if you didn't have a map or knowledgeable taxi driver, the sign for the hotel is tiny with no obvious entrance. However we found it and on entering through the grey metal doors were pleasantly surprised. Everyone was happy, friendly and accomodating and the interior was quite charming.
The hotel offers all that is required for a couple of nights stay in a beautiful city, it just has some bits missing. Stopped in the room at the top of the hotel with the balcony, but there is no view unless you are 7' tall and like rooftops, a bit pointless really. Great decor if you like modern stuff, and very light thanks to the large windows. Bathroom great but although there is a shower over the bath, there is no holder for the shower head hence you have to hold it...not a major problem, but I don't have 3 hands! The toilet is separate from the the bathroom which is fine, but there is no ventilation and it is so so hot and pretty uncomfortable because of this...with a very loud, squeeky door...not good at 3.00am! Tea and coffee making facilities....but no milk of any description. Digital TV with an abundance of channels...but nothing British just for a bit of something in the background.
We didn't do breakfast, the mini bar or dinner. As nice as it all looked they were all seriously expensive and there are an adundance of cafe's, restaurants, bars etc all within a few minutes walk that offer it all at a much nicer price with a view of this wonderful city.
So guys at La Maison Bordeux, you are nearly there, but for my £180 a night I want just those few inexpensive bits that are missing putting right, especially the over priced 30 euro continental breakfast for two... it will make all the difference.
