  • The appartment is located in a great neighborhood, near the city center and the train station.
    The only thing I didn't like it was that we arrived with my friends and there were two girls who were leaving the appartment, that meant that the appartment wasn't clean for us. The owner gave us linen and towels wich were fine, but she spent only five mintues cleaning up everything...
    If you are staying a couple of days, it is a good option as the location is great.

  • Helene was very helpful and a lovely host who met us at the apartment. She gave us a great tip to visit Cadaques on our later trip through Spain & it's still one of our favourite stops! The apartment was clean, tidy & comfortable.

    September 2013
  • The apartment was well-located and outfitted for a short stay. We very much enjoyed our stay and found the kitchen and room comfortable and agreeable.

    The area is a bit lively on Friday and Saturday night but worth it for being so centrally located.

  • The dirtiest appartment I have ever been, it was full of dust and I slept with cockroaches and many mosquitos. I woke up with 12 mosquito bites and with 8 dead cockroaches round mi bed ( my boyfriend kill them).

  • The apartment looks exactly like in the pictures.

    Pluses:
    +It's well located, very close from everything and also walking distance from the train station.
    +Beautiful view from the window.
    +Clean sheets and towels.
    +Early check in (12:00PM), late check out (2:00PM)

    Minuses:
    -Cockroaches
    -Kitchen was quite dirty. We were only there for one night, so we did not have to touch it. Table in the room also not clean. Bed was dusty. (I assume the cause could have been the construction that was going on in the neighboring apartment, and that of course is not the host's fault!)
    -Communication with host is a 4 out of 5 - it would have been excellent, if she was not 1 hour late for the check in (it was agreed at 11PM, she arrived at 12PM, without letting me know in advance, and only answering the phone after 3 calls and saying she just can't. It turned out she was working, which would have been totally fine with me, if she had just let me know at least 1h in advance...)
    All in all, she replied very fast to my emails and the check out procedure went smoothly.

    The issues I emphasize are not that important and all in all my expectations were met - especially since the price is not that high. I recommend this apartment for a short stay if you need to be close to all historical monuments.

  • A lovely flat in a wonderful part of Bordeaux!
    Hélène was kind, helpful and welcoming. We were delayed by a train strike and she happily re-sheduled meeting us at the flat later in the evening when we finally got there.
    The flat is full of books and maps to help plan exploring the city, well furnished and the kitchen very well equipped to cook at home. The bed folds out and was very comfortable. The view on the basilica opposite is charming and the flat is always full of light.
    The Place Saint Michel just downstairs is full of lovely cafés, a great bakery, and very nice restaurants. If you want to cook at home, the marché des capucins, Bordeaux's main market is just five minutes away - a great place. The quartier is just fantastic, full of life and feels lived in.
    We highly recommend the flat and Hélène!

  • Отличная квартира в историческом центре Бордо! Рекомендую!
    Great apartment in the historic center of Bordeaux! I recommend!

    July 2013
  • Helene was nice and she gave me a few maps that were really helpful. The apartment is well situated, so on the first day I visited all the center of Bordeaux by foot and I didn't take the tram not even once. The kitchen is equipped so you can eat at home.
