Bordeaux is a very touristic city and as such it鈥檚 packed with boutique and budget hotels. However, not all of them offer good value for your money, and finding a good hotel can be a tricky task. That鈥檚 why I decided to gather a list of the best hotels in Bordeaux for every budget. 

This list includes hotels from the city center and surrounding districts. I included beautifully designed boutique hotels as well as more basic ones so the price range is quite big and you can easily find a place that fits your budget and needs. To get familiar with the best areas I recommend you read my my guide to the best districts in Bordeaux first. If this is your first visit to France, read my short article about things you should know before ordering a hotel in France.

If a pool is a must, jump straight to my article about the best hotels with pools in Bordeaux. If you’re traveling with kids, here’s my list of the most family-friendly hotels in Bordeaux. And finally, check out my recommendations for the best places to stay in the Saint Emilion region in case you plan to visit there too.

Hotels in the center of Bordeaux – from budget to luxury

Best Western Premier

This is a 4-star hotel with 33 rooms complete with a late 20s art-deco atmosphere. The hotel is made of two beautiful houses dating from the 18th century, the Bayonne and the Etche-Ona, with an interesting story behind each one.

Location-wise, it doesn鈥檛 really get better than this! The hotel is located within a minute’s walk from the Opera and next to le Marche des Grands-Hommes where you can buy some delicious souvenirs to bring back home. If you need a good coffee in the morning, Kuro is just a minute away. Parking requires prior reservation.

Villas Foch Boutique Hotel & Spa Bordeaux

Villas Foch is a standout in this article for its beautiful architecture and its proximity to unbeatable sites like Jardin Public, Bordeaux鈥檚 most beautiful park. This 5-star luxury hotel perfectly combines a modern interior design with Bordeaux鈥檚 famous architecture.聽

It has on staff a butler, a bellhop, a concierge, a driver, room service, and a bar on site. Its spa facilities include a lovely heated swimming pool, a sauna as well as a fitness room. Its quiet yet central location and amazing facilities make it one of the best Spa hotels to stay in Bordeaux.

Quality Hotel

This hotel is located in the Saint Pierre district of Bordeaux, probably the most central location you can think of. This is the heart of Bordeaux鈥檚 historic center where you can find plenty of wine bars and restaurants on every street. 

The hotel itself is a simple 3-star hotel but it鈥檚 very clean and has everything you need for a nice stay. This is a great value considering its location. It鈥檚 important to note that the hotel doesn鈥檛 have a parking space but they do have a partnership with the parking lot of the Grand Hommes (5 minutes walk) with reduced prices at around 15 euros a day. The parking is closed on Sunday.

H么tel Burdigala

H么tel Burdigala is one of Bordeaux’s institutions when it comes to hospitality. In the last two years, the hotel went through massive renovations and now looks amazing! They call their new hospitality style a lifestyle center, with the idea of making people feel cozy and sharing their experience with other guests and customers. The rooms look very specious and their design has this stunning Arcahon vibe creating a very calm feeling. The hotel has amazing facilities such as a gym and a spa as well as a restaurant that鈥檚 open every day.聽

It鈥檚 located in the administrative district of Bordeaux so the scenery is less chic than in the center of Bordeaux. But it takes just 5 5-minute walk to get to the beautiful Place Gambetta where the center of Bordeaux begins. I highly recommend this place.聽

Book your stay here.

La Maison du Lierre

This is a 3-star boutique hotel situated in a beautiful 18th-century house. La Maison du Lierre was named after the 200-year-old ivy covering its terrace. The rooms are small but very nice and clean and it has a beautiful terrace which is a real upgrade.

It鈥檚 located on a quiet street, away from the hustle but just a few minutes walk to the opera of Bordeaux. Nearby you can also find the Fondaudege neighborhood with its many cafes and food shops.聽Book your stay here.

Yndo H么tel

Yndo is probably the fanciest hotel on my list but no list is complete without it.聽Nestled in the heart of Bordeaux’s historic center, Yndo H么tel is a luxury establishment housed within a 19th-century private mansion. The hotel boasts a fragrant garden and a tranquil shaded terrace, providing guests with an upscale and serene experience.

Individually adorned with designer furniture, the rooms at Yndo H么tel are equipped with modern amenities, each featuring a balcony and a cozy seating area. The hotel is located in a quiet area, called Saint Sernin, within walking distance to the hyper center of Bordeaux.聽

H么tel de s猫ze

H么tel de S猫ze is a 4-star hotel, located in the fancy Triangle d鈥橭r district next
to many luxury boutiques and wine and chocolate shops. Situated in a beautiful 18th-century building, the hotel has 55 rooms with 18th-century decor that gives it a very elegant look.聽

It also harbors a spa (not commonly seen in Bordeaux鈥檚 hotels), a beautiful library, and a golf course (15 minutes by shuttle). If H么tel de S猫ze is booked, here are a few other Spa hotels in Bordeaux I recommend.聽

Mama Shelter

The most popular rooftop in Bordeaux - Mama shelter

If you鈥檙e looking for a more funky atmosphere in a great location, Mama Shelter is your place. Mama Shelter is part of a chain of hotels, located in several cities in France. It has 97 colorful and funky rooms designed by Philippe Starck.

The hotel is located right in the center of Bordeaux, in the Hotel de Ville neighborhood. You鈥檒l be within walking distance of all the best bars, boutiques, and the main monuments of Bordeaux. However, you don鈥檛 even have to leave the hotel in the evening as Mama Shelter is home to one of the best rooftops in Bordeaux. It鈥檚 not a fancy hotel but definitely a fun one!

Brit Hotel Des Grands Hommes聽

A very basic 2-star hotel, perfectly located just a few minutes walk from the Opera and the Grands Hommes center. The hotel is simple but nicely decorated and in general, feels very cozy. If you鈥檙e looking for a budget hotel in the center of Bordeaux, this is a good option. 

The closest parking is at the Grandes Homme commercial center.聽

Seeko鈥檕 Hotel

A 4-star hotel located in the north of the Chartrons neighborhood. A bit out of the historic center but a good location nonetheless. 

The Seeko鈥檕 hotel has 44 spacious rooms with a chic and urban style, very different from the classic hotels in the city center. Some of the rooms鈥 windows turn to the Bassin-a-flot, an old port with plenty of boats and a very unique architecture. The hotel also offers a sauna and a hammam which is a lovely bonus. The parking requires a reservation as there are only 10 places available.

Personal note: if it鈥檚 a short stay and you want to feel the vibe of Bordeaux鈥檚 historic, then this hotel is a bit far. But If you don鈥檛 mind walking 20 minutes to the city center (or taking the tram) then it could be a great option.

It鈥檚 located at the southern border of the Bacalan neighborhood, which is now one of the coolest neighborhoods in the city, with a beautiful covered market, the big wine museum, and plenty of street art.

Hotels next to the train station of Bordeaux

Many people are looking for accommodations next to the train station as they are traveling to the area by train. That鈥檚 why I added three affordable hotels just next to Gare Saint-Jean, although I鈥檓 not a big fan of this area.

Novotel Bordeaux Centre Gare Saint Jean

The first one is Novotel Gare Saint Jean, one of the best options in the area. A very comfortable and clean hotel with comfy beds and great service. It鈥檚 a 4-star hotel but very affordable. It鈥檚 located just a few minutes walk from the station but very close to one of the most beautiful churches in Bordeaux, L鈥櫭ゞlise Sainte-Croix.

B&B La Halte Montaigne

If you鈥檙e looking for a more cozy option next to the train station the Halte Montaigne B&B is your place. Located just 400 meters from the station this beautiful B&B has a contemporary and warm decor. While there you can also enjoy their terrace or cozy living room.聽The owner is very friendly and serves a delicious breakfast, which is a bonus in that area.聽

Book your stay here.

Ibis gare Saint Jean

If you鈥檙e on a limited budget, Ibis Gare Saint Jean could be a good solution as well. It鈥檚 not the most charming hotel but it鈥檚 a good value for its price. It鈥檚 a 3-star hotel with nice clean rooms and it鈥檚 located 300m from the station.
