Great service and reception Very friendly and clean hotel
An immaculate hotel, with very modern and well equipped rooms. Staff are students of Vatel Hospitality School and can be numerous if not a little uncertain as what to do. Not in the greatest location for centre of Bordeaux, but good public transport links. Chartrons has some good places to visit and access to the restaurants, shops and bars in the suburb and along the beautiful river are very good. If you want a room only close to public transport we would recommend the hotel.
Guests are not made aware that the reception staff are students training in hotel management and hospitality, which would be useful. Breakfast arrangements are very strange, pre order the night before, trays of breakfast orders are made up for your chosen times, no eye contact or people interaction when you get to the breakfast room, sitting at an empty table wondering what was going on. Lots of staff working hard but chaotically and inefficiently. After 15-20 minutes of none of the staff speaking to us and no breakfast service.we walked out.
No parking available close to the property. Only about 10 minutes away.
Good location, easy access to riverside and only 2 min walk to tram stop. Friendly, helpful staff
Clean but not special
The bed was comfortable and the room was clean but we were not told that this is a training facility for hospitality students. With that in mind you might expect higher than average service? No, just swarms of students in front of the building and rushing down hallways to make classes, posters on walls and doors re: curriculum and advertising careers. Although the staff at reception were polite and accommodating, It was an unexpected experience.
The hotel is not in a pretty part of the town. Next time we will opt for closer to the Villiage center, within walking distance to the better restaurants, the fountains and markets.
A stay at Hôtel Vatel places you in the heart of Bordeaux, within a 15-minute walk of Bordeaux Wine and Trade Museum and Contemporary Art Museum. Featured amenities include a business center, complimentary newspapers in the lobby, and dry cleaning/laundry services.
