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.

... From neighboring regions and almost if not equally as exclusive are the Château Margaux in Margaux and Château Haut-Brion, in Péssac-Leognan. A 2014 Mouton Rothschild will set you back well over 300 dollars; a 2014 Chateau Lafite-Rothschild currently goes for close to 400 dollars a bottle. That's if you buy a case, and so it goes.

A lot of the town walls and some fortified gates are still intact (amazingly), so, it is worth a walk around. Surprisingly, for such a potential tourist spot, there does not appear to be a single pleasant bar or cafe to visit.
Fingers crossed, the weather is fine and warm!

Along the riverfront in one area, there is a large concrete space with tiny fountains spaced out every few feet. These fountains alternate spraying a mist and flooding the space every fifteen minutes. It was pretty cool because lots of people were there walking around enjoying the cool mist on a hot day, or ...
