My overall experience was good.

I liked the hotel but it could be updated a bit. Location was good, staff were friendly and very helpful.


Customer review rating 0.5/5

Tina H. Couples - 16/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is changing from Mercure to Novotel. The room was basic and certainly not 4 star standard. The bathroom and toilet were not hygienically clean. The underside of the toilet seat was disgusting, which I mentioned to the Manager/front desk supervisor at the time. I also stated that they are false advertising as the room is nothing like the photographs. I was told there was nothing they could do as it was between changing over from Mercure to Novotel. They offered me a bigger room, but that had the same problem. When I said I was going to move hotels and would like a refund, I was initially told they would only refund me two nights instead of the three I had paid for as I had used the room (I was only in there waiting for the supervisor to start work). I received my full refund the next day. If you want 4 star this is not the hotel to go to and perhaps the front desk supervisor could use a little customer service training.

Great stay , location was great , tram outside the door so handy

Elizabeth Families - 09/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Very pleasant and helpful welcoming staff. Very clean room and clean linnen. One major drawback: the rooms next to ours are not well insulated with noise. We have heard neighbours in all surrounding rooms

Nice hotel in refresh so the lobby and the rest is a bit messy

Friendly hotel - under renovation

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Beatrice Couples - 08/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

All employees were very courteous and friendly. The ongoing renovation was disturbing due to noise. We stayed on an already renovated floor ... Nice room! Breakfast was super - a lot of choices of breakfast items.

Comfortable rooms. Noisy Stay due to renovations and noisy guest above

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Gaelyn Families - 02/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Overall experience in the room good, good staff service, comfortable bed. We were not warned about the renovations which would have probably made us stay elsewhere. As young parents with a baby a restful night is important but there was a lot of noise during our baby's daytime naps and even noise coming from upstairs. So overall not a restful stay unfortunately.

barely ok

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Marc Families - 20/07/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Unfortunately, we were on same floor than noisy clients using a room like their bar, moving around between rooms , smoking etc.. We warned the next day but nothing was done. The second night was worst. We had a chat with the director who was helpful from then. Despite offering changing room and sharing some treats, the overall experience is not good.

No AC even at 27 c degrees!

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

corleone2001 Family - 19/10/2018 TripAdvisor review

The hotel is fine, but the day was about 27 degrees celsium, and they didn´t allow to turn on the Air Conditioning! We had to sleep with the window opened and with outside noise! I really don´t understand that policy!

Dear Mr Andre W, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience. I am sorry that you encountered issues with the AC, please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. We everyday try to adapt hotel's temperature for our guest's comfort. We appreciate you sharing your concerns and it's our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near Bordeaux future. Sincerely, The Front Desk Team

Hotel on tram route

A short walk from Bordeaux St Jean station and with a tram stop a few metres away. Very friendly and helpful staff. A pleasant restaurant with out door tables and good food. An extensive range of food for breakfast.

Dear Guests, we all would like to thank you for your overall very positive feedback. We are very pleased to hear that you did enjoy your stay with us. We look forward to welcoming you again at the Mercure Bordeaux Gare saint Jean in beautiful Bordeaux. Best Regards The Reception

A bit renovated room, but dirty. Caridors are old and not maintained

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

igalst Couples - 28/06/2018 TripAdvisor review

The room seem to be renovated recently, but still was dirty and we've found someone else's hair in multiple places. The caridors or other areas of the hotel are old and not maintained. For example, someone else let's a few glasses outside of their room's door. We've spotted them in mid-day, and they were left there until the morning.

Good hotel for visiting Bordeaux for a short break

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Richard S Couples - 30/05/2018 TripAdvisor review

This is a nice hotel with excellent links via the tramway into the centre of Bordeaux. It is also within walking distance so would suit most people. Staff were friendly and helpful and the Deluxe room was a good size and nice and clean. Would happily recommend it.

Dear Mr Richard S, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Hôtel Mercure Bordeaux Centre Gare Saint-Jean. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. I will share your comments with our team. We hope to see you again Mrs Bouyer carine Hotel Manager

Convenient for Bordeaux station

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Jaime E Business - 08/12/2017 TripAdvisor review

Close to Saint Jean railway station, but not NEXT to it. Count on a 5-minute walk to reach it. On the other hand, the hotel is situated in a quite area. Staff is attentive and helpful. The rooms are spacious but need renovation.

Excellent location, good room

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Adam G Couples - 02/11/2017 TripAdvisor review

The hotel is just outside the city centre, which makes its significantly quieter than some of the hotels closer to the old town. The hotel is an easy tram ride or walk from the Bordeaux St. jean train station or into the city centre, The tram only costs 1.50 Euro and runs every couple of minutes so you never need to wait for long. There is plenty of space if you have big bags. We stayed in a terrace room which was well appointed and spacious. The terrace overlooked an inner courtyard of some trees and a vegetable garden, The terrace was a lovely place to sit and relax. The only downside was people could smoke on the terrace. As non-smokers this was a significant detraction of our ability to use and enjoy the space or have fresh air come in from the door. Although we know smoking laws a much more relaxed in Europe than Australia it really does detract from the enjoyment of the space. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable and the room was very quiet. We went outside of tourist season and although the hotel appeared to be more suited for French business travelers, we found the staff to be very friendly and welcoming, which was very pleasing, We would recommend the hotel to anyone who wants to have easy access to the train station and the city center and those who enjoy a comfortable bead and sleep.
