The apartment is excellent, spacious, warm and all you really need... We will definitely use again on our next visit to Bordeaux
This apartment is perfectly located. It is in the centre of the city, next to some amazing restaurants and a short walk from the tram stop in Place de la Bourse. Yet it is just off the main road and therefore in a quiet area. As a single traveller, I felt completely safe walking to and from the apartment, even late at night.
There are several stairs to negotiate and no lift but this was not a problem for me. The apartment is immaculately clean and well decorated. On first inspection there are plenty of facilities; TV, DVD player, iron, kettle, Nespresso machine, hairdryer, dishwasher and washing machine. However the TV needed tuning in (the instruction came up in French therefore I did not attempt it) and there were no instruction to use the electrical items. The hairdryer was a travel version and considering the quality of the apartment, I would have preferred a more substantial one.
The wifi was fantastic, quick and reliable.
A note maybe for the owners. A welcome pack would be nice. As there was no food shops nearby, a bottle of water would have been much appreciated. Also there were no pods for the coffee machine and I doubt people would actually bring their own!
The towels are poor quality compared to the rest of the room.
Also be aware of the small print. The owners wanted a 300 €uro security bond on arrival.
