Really enjoyed our stay at Place de la Bourse. The value was excellent and all the best restaurants, wine bars, and shopping were all just outside our door and within walking distance. We had finished up a Viking River Cruise and wanted to stay and few more days in Bordeaux and we are so glad we did. The apartment is two story with the bedroom and bathroom downstairs. Both the living room and bedroom have windows opening up to a open air area. Allowed plenty of fresh air and you could still maintain privacy. There was a fan that we ran as well.
The bathroom tub/shower was larger than most. Plenty of hot water and towels. The bed was comfy. Plenty of room to move around in the bedroom. Room for my luggage, etc.
They kitchen had plenty of dishes and glassware. We only made coffee. It would have been nice if a few filters were left in the apartment to make coffee but that was easily fixed at the Monoprix. Laurence gave us plenty of suggestions for places to eat and walks to take. She was easy to communicate with before and during our check in. There is a tiny lift perfect to sent up the luggage.
Its not a four star hotel... but it was exactly what we were looking for and I would even feel secure enough to stay there as a solo traveler.
This is a nicely renovated apartment with 12 to 14’ living room ceilings and restored woodwork. Everything works well, the bed is comfortable and there is ample storage and a comfortable eating area. The kitchen is small but you can do some cooking.the apartment manager was punctual and pleasant.
The area has many amenities close by including groceries, meat and pastry shops, and some restaurants. The main areas of Bordeaux are a little farther away but the city was very walkable and public transportation was very good. We found some fantastic restaurants and loved the architure.
By rating the apartment 4 circles I don’t mean to downgrade it. To me 5 circles means perfect and this apartment has a few minor nits.
It’s on a side road with very few cars and can be considered quiet for a city apartment. However, there is an office in the building and especially during morning and afternoon commute times the building doors are always slamming. (This is an old building with old double doors.)
The washroom door does not shut and the bath tub has high sides that makes it difficult to get in for someone with mobility problems. The toilet is in a separate closet from the sink and tub.
All in, this is a nice apartment, better than most, and Bordeaux is a great city to visit.
