Clean but not special
The bed was comfortable and the room was clean but we were not told that this is a training facility for hospitality students. With that in mind you might expect higher than average service? No, just swarms of students in front of the building and rushing down hallways to make classes, posters on walls and doors re: curriculum and advertising careers. Although the staff at reception were polite and accommodating, It was an unexpected experience.
The hotel is not in a pretty part of the town. Next time we will opt for closer to the Villiage center, within walking distance to the better restaurants, the fountains and markets.
With a stay at Hôtel Vatel, you'll be centrally located in Bordeaux, within a 10-minute drive of Rue Sainte-Catherine and Place de la Bourse. Featured amenities include a business center, complimentary newspapers in the lobby, and dry cleaning/laundry services.
