Quality Hotel St. Catherine
Travel Blogs from Bordeaux
So after traveling around for three months, I can say finishing up the European part of my trip in bordeaux has been great. The downfall about traveling by yourself, is that good wine is always better shared, but you know me, that has never really stopped me. The town of bordeaux is world heritage listed which means they are not allowed to change …
I flew into France at a leisurely pace on Saturday afternoon. The flight process I would liken to the easy trip, Melbourne to Sydney. I didn't even have to pass through customs or immigration. I'm a bit disappointed that I don't have an 'Italy' stamp in my passport. I used Toulouse simply as a stopover, especially as I wasn't feeling 100%25. A …
Well Bordeaux is wine country and wine drinking we did!!
so we drove from the Loire valley via villandry chateau. The gardens are beautiful. We spent ages just wandering around taking it all in and Ali tried to take photos of the bees in the garden.
Bordeaux is just amazing. Most of the city UNESCO world heritage listed so it has …
We were finally here. Ron was very happy. We had travelled the entire length of Spain overnight and a short while after crossing the French-Spanish border we entered the world's most famous wine region. Celebrated for its epic red wines and unsurpassed sweeter varieties, its prestige and grand heritage put it at the pinnacle of the viticulture …

Historical Traveler Reviews Quality Hotel St. Catherine Bordeaux
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.
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.
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.
