Historical Traveler Reviews Quality Hotel St. Catherine Bordeaux
Great location, great value, very clean
This hotel is perfectly located--right on the long pedestrian street with shopping and good eats. Everything was very clean, and the room was reasonably spacious; high ceilings made the room feel larger. The windows are big and in typical French style (you can swing them both open); our room was flooded with sunlight. The bathroom was quite sizeable. The decor could use updating, but not a big deal. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
If you bring your laptop, there's free wireless Internet access down in the lobby.
The breakfast is good, but somewhat expensive (11,50 euro).
Only complaint: the safe is not that great--they should upgrade.
We would definitely stay here again because of the location; surprisingly, there are not many well-located hotels in Bordeaux. This one is not fancy, but it is extremely clean and convenient, which is what we cared about!
Decided last minute to go to Bordeaux for a long weekend - so didnt have time to do any homework on hotels, so after checking rates on expedia and reading a few reviews on this site - booked the Quality Hotel St. Catherine for $75 per room per night.
Location was excellent - right in the centre, close to shops, bars, restaurants, squares and local historic sights and also excellent for transport (local trams as well as bus to/from airport).
Hotel itself is quite dingy - reception very small and lifts old. We booked a double room, which was small, but had all you needed for a short stay, a comfortable bed, clean linen, a TV (for news), clean bathroom and most essential for a woman - a hairdryer...!!!! Room we had was a corner room, with only half a window - BUT - for a weekend stay, where all we needed room for was to sleep and have a bath - we could not have asked for more considering both rate and location.
Would def stay at hotel again.
Excellent location, within walking distance of pretty much everything central Bordeaux has to offer. Decent, bright room (tiny weeny bit dated but still nice and comfortable) with good air con. Didn't have breakfast in the hotel - went to pastry shop opposite - much cheaper.
Location is perfect
Just returned after a great weekend,this hotel is perfectly situated-close to the shops and very handy for the restaurants .The staff were very friendly and the breakfasts were just perfect.Definately one of the best hotels I have stayed in for a city break.
Great location off main pedestriansed shopping street.Basic but clean and friendly.Rear rooms can be a bit dark so preference for front rooms onto street.Overall good value for the best location in the city.
Nice Hotel, nice area
Stayed January 16-17,2005 on business. It is located on a pedestrian walkway that is only frequented by an occasional auto or delivery truck. It's great at night because it is very, very quiet. The hotel staff was very courteous and helpful and spoke enough English to get through most conversations. The rooms, standard for France, were small but very clean and comfortable. We did not rent a car so I'm not sure where you would park but why bother? There is a tram system that takes you throughout the city. We took a cab from the Gare St, Jean train station (about $17 EUROS) but took the tram back in about 10 minutes for about $ 3.85 EUROS. All in all, I would definately stay there again!
We stayed at the Quality St. Catherine in December 2004, and I will certainly go back on further trips to Bordeaux. Great location, clean, good service, nice price.
Good value for money
Stayed at this basic, no frill hotel recently. Very good value for money. Good location, clean and tidy. Taxi takes you right to the hotel located in the pedestrian zone or 10 minutes walk from the Jet Bus stop. Staff speaks limited English but very friendly and helpful.
Standard rooms are small. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby. No hesitation to recommend this hotel. Any one going to Bordeaux should also consider the Bordeaux Discovery package offered by the Office de Tourisme de Bordeaux.
Convenient, comfortable & friendly
The best accolade I could give - I've stayed twice, and probably will do again when I visit Bordeaux. I loved the location - on the edge of the historic old town with it's fabulous selection of restaurants, in beautiful old places (squares) which come to life at night. But also such a short walk to the elegant and bountiful shops and boutiques! Rooms were small but adequate - ask for one looking into the street below with their flowery balconies - very French! Average but typical continental breakfast. But above all, the staff were really friendly and helpful.

We woke to torrential rain. In fact much of the night was torrential rain so it was no surprise we were next to a very large puddle. After breakfast in the camp common room we were sent to Bages , a tiny village where, to our amazement, there was a bike shop with the right size tyre and inner tube for P&Ps tandem - phew! Then onwards for a day crossing the Medoc. The highlight ...
We wanted to have a day or so on a campsite. It's a bit more relaxing than an aire and you get more space. We also wanted to go into Bordeaux and there aren't any suitable aires. So camping Bordeaux lac. Huge campsite but mostly chalets and mobile homes. Got there before midday and set up. Electric hookup to fire up the microwave and fridge. Luxury - hot chocolate! Then into Bordeaux. Drove to the park and ride and then tram into the city. What a ...
... clearly stated that camping cars were interdit. We went down to Langon to see where the A380 parts were offloaded from the barges. Returning, we walked round the town. I managed to find a hairdresser who could cut my hair. It has grown so quickly in the last 10 weeks. And in the heat it gets very uncomfortable. I was happy with what I got. We had a nice meal outside the town walls before walking back up through the town to ...
... The current family bought it and restored it in the mid 1900's. Again, we didn't get to see inside the main house but we can only imagine how impressive it is if the grounds and the winery are any indication.
Our group was broken in to English and French speaking groups as we only had an hour to see the grounds and learn about their production processes so explaining the processes in French first then English (as the last tour was done) would have ...
... got to look through it and see the many kitchens and staterooms etc. The climb to the top of the watch tower was a little tricky as the stairs were only about 0.6 of a metre wide as they spiraled towards the top.
There was also the "Secrets room" which was this large room with a domed ceiling where if you stood in opposite corners facing away from each other you could just whisper into the corner and the other person could hear what ...
