Our friends stayed in room 306 and it was very contemporary, much cleaner appearing, and larger. Some rooms (such as ours and our friends) face the...

I stayed at the Best Western Grand Hotel Francais in Bordeaux in May 2010 together with my parents. We booked two rooms. My parents stayed in a Standing Room, which was quite large and nice.

The hotel is in a very nice area of Bordeaux and is right in the center and close to the airport shuttle stop. I had a quiet room and the breakfast was good. 88euros can be a bit high.
