... this town, clean and oh so beautiful !! We went back to our little camping and had a good night sleep after all these hours of walking ! 2nd We had a long drive of at least 5 and a half hours in front of us, so we got up a little quicker than usual. The weather was still strange with sun and showers following each other. We arrived at another small camping at Saint-Epain we had looked for in our book at half past 4 and got ...
Another travel day. Tears were shed upon leaving our Barcelonian hotel.
One of the stops we made was in a small town named Carcassonne. This is truly the archeype of what people think of when considering a medieval village. All the town surrounded by a moat and thick castle walls.
While we are staying in Bordeaux, it is getting a short visit. We are only staying for the night on the way to Paris. Just enough time to grab a meal and see a few churches along the ...
The B and B at which we stayed really was delightful and we had a great chat over breakfast with a couple from Amsterdam. We then went into Saint Emilion, walked the little cobble stoned streets and visited the 12 monuments of this medieval town. It was a great day, although very hot. Then ...
High in the hills, over looking a beautiful valley and a river, my friends treated me to a beautiful lunch at a elegant restaurant specializing in homemade, locally grown and raised cuisine. Not the type of place a tourist would find being high up in the hills. The view, the company and the food -beyond words. I thought I ate well in Italy but France has been a whole new gastronomic ...
... a very cool town and the birthplace of Louis Pasteur in 1822. We followed brass triangles with cats on them for 4km around all the places of interest. We sheltered outside the tourist office during another downpour while using their wifi. We had been heading to Germany, but after looking at our Camperstop book of Aires there and given that we have only 3 more weeks left in the EU and that we want to spend some time in Normandy, we decided to can that and stay with the comforts of ...

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.
