Staff were friendly and helpful, good location near tram stop. Very good mid range hotel. Diner and breakfast OK. I do not really want to add any more but just get to 200 characters. A swimming pool would be nice but not expected.

I think this was our fourth visit in the last 18 months and sadly each time it gets worse. Check in was a complete farce having taken my Accor Gold Card the young chap on reception went on the phone to deal with another client for 20 minutes. No apology . The communal areas were dirty, the external ashtrays were full and tables full of empty glasses the stand alone unit so full it was on fire! The bathroom sink was seriously stained and unwelcoming and the entire room needed a refresh. Sadly the proximity to the local emergency services precluded a decent nights sleep. WiFi throughout, did not extend to our bedroom and the fact everybody must be on it was a poor excuse indeed.Great pity as some of the café staff were very charming ,otherwise a no no for us now.

We chose Ibis Meriadeck for a week of house viewings in Bordeaux, because it was the most centrally located of all Ibis hotels, with an unbeatable price (EUR 62/ night).We were given a room on the top floor with beautiful views over the city. The room was clean and modern with wooden floors and a good power shower in the bathroom. Most importantly it was extremely quiet, making for a good night's sleep. Service was excellent both at reception and in the bar-restaurant where we were always greeted with a smile. Highly recommended.

Arrived from San Sebestian/Hendai on a Sunday and stayed for 2 nights (4 & 5 July). Check-in was quick & easy like all other IBIS hotels we stayed at on our Europe trip. The reception staff tried very hard to be helpful with minimal English they spoke. Room air con wasn't cooling properly. The hotel is well connected by tram which was a positive. Good location.Coming from San Sebastian we quickly became aware that most things including restaurants were not all open on a Sundays unlike Spain.We decided the easy option was to perhaps eat in the hotel restaurant given most places were shut. Went inside the restaurant and picked up the menu and decided to have a quick review before we were VERY abruptly and rudely encountered by a restaurant staff who understand might be the restaurant manager early evening(around 6pm), challenging me what did I want? why did I take the menu myself? Being treated like a little kid and told I should have asked him for the menu and how dare I took the menu myself was enough to put me off from going inside this restaurant for the REST OF OUR STAY. Also, I was reminded that next time ask for the menu to which I very humbly replied - 'No problem sir'. He was/is very territorial, protective, unfriendly and not mindful of how to treat a customer. This was enough to turn us off and even though we were desperate to eat there we simply AVOIDED going in again!! This had to be the rudest restaurant staff I had encountered in whole of my 5 week trip!We later eat at a very good restaurant next to Palais Rohan called 'Le Cafe Rohan'. Great service and food there..2mins walk from the hotel and open till late. Paid more than what we would have paid at the hotel restaurant. but was well worth it for a peaceful environment and a waiter who went out of his way to service.

The hotel provides all amenities usually needed to survive when being on travel - but has no charme and no 'extra-touch'. The rooms are pretty small and create a claustrophobic atmosphere - apparently due to the low ceiling and the small window which can get opened for 5 cm only. Breakfast was OK.

Have used this hotel before when visiting Bordeaux, both with my wife for tourism purposes and with a senior hockey club for a local tournament. Situated just off main centre but everything within 10-15 mins walk including town centre, restaurants, bars, shopping and a very large Auchan hypermarket in the Meriadeck centre next door.Fairly standard Ibis accomodation where room is not the largest but has all that you need. Air con was down at the time of our visit (and temp was around 35 degrees - oops!) but management had apologised in advance and nothing they could do. Good to have car parking facilities (around 12 Euros a day) underneath hotel. Staff welcoming and answer questions with willing help.Would certainly use again

Whether you go for culture, shopping or dining, this is within your reach on foot. If you don't feel like walking, the tram is just outside. Parking in the basement was practical (although exiting was steep and a bit awkward). To top it off, the airport is not far either (with a car this time!)Our room on the 6th floor was very warm, probably due to the 35 degrees outside, but aircon was definitely not the best feature, and windows only open 10 cm. Would definitely go back, and book through Internet. Paid €20 less than the rate given outside when we arrived.

Great hotel option visiting Bordeaux. Nearby main city attractions walking or using the tram. Foods and services were excellent . Room in general was very good for the price, however the TV set has a very low quality and very limited cable channels. if you want to stay in a while in the room, you don't have much to watch.This was my only dissapointment.As far a very good hotel value.

Sincerely I was frustrate when I enter the room:Shadow, smell of smok, and uncomforteble bathroom!The carpets in the room and in the lift were dirty, the faucet of washbowl was rusty, the light in the bathroom is insufficient.

I recently visited Bordeaux for a rugby match and stayed 3 nights at the Ibis Bordeaux Centre Meriadeck. The hotel was in an ideal setting, just one minute from a tram stop and one minute from the Airport Bus Stop. The breakfast was plentiful and of good variety, and it was good they had multi-lingual receptionists.

This hotel is in a great place - central, the staff were very good and the hotel had good facilities attached to it (Bar and Restaurant). BUT.....we did have one issue. We had two rooms on the 11th floor and we could not get the heat down during the night. The rooms on that floor were too hot to sleep in....... :( They had air conditioner and it was turned to low (~15'C) in both rooms and we could not cool both the rooms. disapointing...........

Great location for a night. Cheap parking and very central for the middle of town and a night out for dinner. Only footsteps from the cathedral and fine dining, likewise, the hotel is good for a nightcap on the way home or on the way out for that matter.

Very noisy during the day because of a heavy construction site in the neighbour building . We had to change the room but still we had trouble sleeping since the bed was unconfortable . Other than that, usual ibis standard, parking and breakfast are paid. The hotel location is quite good. If don´t stay longer than 2 days it is a good option.

WE stayed here for 2 nights, and let me start off by saying that the woman that was working at the front desk, Pascal was amazing. She was knowledgeable, funny and knew the area and had no problem talking to me in English. Now ont the bad parts, the "beds" were the famous Ibis wooden planks with a mattress pad on it, why anyone would think they are a good idea is beyond me. I think next time I book with Ibis I will ask if they have a real bed or this excuse of a bed. The last night we were there, there was an alarm that started going off at around 4 am, and no one seemed to care to shut it off until about 6 am, I dont know if it was in the hotel or across the street, but I would have thought that the hotel would have tried to do something about that for the comfort of their guests. The hotel had a great location, close to Rue Sainte-Catherine, the really cool shopping street in Bordeaux, there was good food only a few blocks away ( Ask Pascal for her recommendations) and in walking distance to the waterfront.Just an FYI, after you pay for the parking in the lobby, the machine to put your card in is at the bottom of the ramp out of the garage. Dont make the mistake that I did and think it was at the top of the stairs and have to someone back down a steep winding incline.I would stay here again, but please please please Ibis, give us a real bed!
