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!

I stayed at this hotel last weekend. The room was on the 5th floor and had double glazing which kept away noise from the street, but there was quite a bit of noise coming from other rooms and the corridor, even though I had specifically requested a quiet room. The room was very basic, supposed to be a twin but one was a small single facing lengthways. The bathroom fittings were very old and dated and both rooms need a serious makeover, as does the hotel in general. But the shower worked, the beds were reasonably comfortable. On the upside, the hotel is in a good location, a little tricky to get to from the airport - you need to take a bus first, then change onto a tram - but only 5 minutes walk from the Cathedral, Tower and City Hall and lots of nice cafes and a Moniprix Shopping Centre with some nice boutiques.

Although this is a good hotel and the location is great for Bordeaux, there was a building site next door which we were not told about and given a room directly above it. They started work at 7.00am with the whole hotel shaking as the drilled the foundations.The staff are a bit slow and not very helpful, but otherwise a typical Ibis hotel and would be fine if no building going on next door. Also the Novotel and Etap share the same block.

I contemplated booking a privately owned hotel but then decided to play safe and book an Ibis. No regrets. Nothing startling, but for the price, the hotel was in a good location, clean and comfortable room (king size bed - always welcome!) bathroom was fairly basic but clean and a decent size. Staff were pleasant. Only one complaint (apart from the car parking charges - reduced rates for residents would have been nice) I know they want you to use their restaurant, but facilities to make a hot drink would have been appreciated.Overall good value for money.
