in addition to the world renowned wines and its cuisine that makes anyone’s mouth water, Bordeaux, the “little Paris”, reserves us a refined and exemplary hotel business.

The whole atmosphere is enthralling and getting lost in the local streets is the best itinerary we can do, with interesting discoveries – and full of history – that make your eyes shine at every step. As the rule dictates, most hotels are located in majestic properties, in historic buildings and even in châteaux within the limits of the port city.

If you want to stay close to the main museums, monuments and restaurants, in other words, the bustle of Bordeaux, the ideal is to choose a hotel in the center. Those who prefer an extra dose of tranquility – who doesn’t like to open their windows and hear the birds singing? -, have options up their sleeves that escape the movement but, even so, are not far from the main points of the city.

Whether in châteaux, boutique hotels or large international chains, Bordeaux welcomes us in a unique way and welcomes everyone like good living with the touch of sophistication present in the air. Below, check out four places to stay in Bordeaux:

InterContinental Bordeaux Le Grand Hotel

It is an imposing hotel in every sense, from the luxurious neoclassical architecture to its privileged location on the Place de la Comédie, just opposite the Grand Theater that hosts the National Opera – one of the most important addresses in Bordeaux. For this reason, the five-star hotel has been a typically Bordeaux institution since the 1920s.

I say that, in addition to the luxury in the city center, staying here is part of history. It was designed by Parisian architect Victor Louis and the interior, which reflects all the opulence of the Baroque period, is designed by Jacques Garcia. Vaulted ceilings, huge chandeliers, marble surfaces and silk curtains are some of the details that can be seen right at the entrance.

Today belonging to the network InterContinental of Hotels and Resorts, it combines modernity while preserving its long tradition. The hotel offers a special contemporary rooftop with a bar and views of the city, a two-Michelin star restaurant by chef Gordon Ramsay that pays homage to French cuisine and a spa by the Guerlain brand.

There are 130 rooms in all, with a variety of categories, sizes and views. But one thing they all have in common: they are comfortable and decorated with all the pomp that governs the hotel. It is an experience to be remembered.

Yndo Hotel

Unlike Le Grand Hotel, which is in the heart of the city, the Indo it is a boutique hotel set a little way from the center, about seven minutes away. It seems little, but the scenario is different and we have the benefit of silence. It is ideal for those who want to combine a slower pace away from the hustle and a sophisticated stay.

Yndo occupies a private residence, a mansion in a small château on a street that exudes tranquility. I can describe it as a refined retreat that combines bold contemporary style, bold artwork and furniture, with the sharp details of the 19th century.

There are only 12 rooms, all different from each other, divided into five styles. I stayed in one of the so-called “Crazy Rooms”, where every corner and wall seems to be filled with contemporary artwork. The view of the city from the window and the birds singing first thing in the morning are highlights of the experience.

The lush inner courtyard is the ideal place to enjoy breakfast or stock up on an aperitif. Bikes to explore the city – a very efficient way to get to know Bordeaux – and the catering service are available for guests.

Royal Villa

Speaking of maximum privacy, luxury and comfort, the Royal Villa is another one of the right choices in Bordeaux. Exclusive hotel overlooking Place du Parlament, an Italian-style square near Place de la Bourse, occupies a mansion built in the 18th century and offers just three sumptuous apartments.

So it’s like a mix of a boutique hotel and a house that welcomes guests. With a contemporary design that makes references to the 19th century, the decor of the rooms plays with the natural wonders of the region and features fireplaces with carved marble edges. Large windows with city views are very welcome both during the day and at night.

Like real apartments, they all have fully equipped kitchens, as well as a selection of wines and champagne and a breakfast basket. At our disposal is a mini sauna and a concierge, who help with wine tastings and tours.

Hotel De Sèze

O Hotel de Sèze it is located on one of the most traditional streets in Bordeaux, the Allées de Tourny, a few steps from Place des Quinconces and about a five-minute walk from the Grand Theatre.

With 4 stars, the 18th-century building has sophisticated and modern interiors – in the lobby, some antique furniture is mixed with designer lamps and sofas.

Its 55 rooms, including three suites, are cozy – the highest floors have a privileged view of the city. They are divided into four categories and feature eight different decor combinations, inspired by the city’s extravagant past.

The place also has the Comptoir de Sèze restaurant, which follows the concept of bistronomy (refined bistro at more affordable prices), bar, lounges (such as cigars) and a spa with outdoor whirlpool, Turkish bath and sauna. At guests’ disposal is a private golf course, which transfer is free of charge.
