Situated in the heart of Bordeaux, La Course offers a considered insight into the area’s wine-growing history through its fabulous interior decor. A sense of journey lies at the heart of this historic building; from the past to the future, and from the vineyards to the palate – it’s all wrapped up within these exotic and elegant walls. Whilst you’re immersed in the city enough within La Course’s captivating concept, head out to find yourself just a short walk from many of the city’s best sights, including the City of Wine museum and the CAPC Musée d’Art Contemporain.
It would be utterly remiss not to sample the region’s produce, and La Course’s wine cellar affords you every opportunity to do so. Situated in an atmospheric subterranean space, you can enjoy a relaxing tipple in the hanging rattan egg chair, or take it to the terrace, which is charmingly lit by a fairy-light-strewn tree. Unwind with a workout in the fitness room (it might be dinky, but it does manage to squeeze in a hammam) before retiring to your gorgeous guest room; those who opt for the rooftop suite can enjoy a private pool and stunning city views.
How to Get There
A fabulous fun and quirky hotel. All the staff were so helpful and friendly, offering great restaurant suggestions and organising cabs. All that and a great breakfast, what more can you want? A great place to stay
This is a small hotel in a very quiet area with mainly locals. However, walking distance to the city center. All the rooms are different and maybe a bit quirky to some extent, but very nice.
It's a very cozy atmosphere with nice common areas, including a wine cellar.
Continental breakfast. Several good restaurants nearby.
The jewel of the hotel is the staff which is amazing. Service is impeccable.
This hotel is very old (but updated) and charming. The staff personel were all very helpful, friendly, and professional. We were too late for a hot breakfast each day, but were provided with delicious filtered coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice, fruit compote, and freshly baked bread, croissants and pastries. Our room was on the third floor, no elevator, but our bags were carried up and down. Our only "complaint" was there was no shower. There was a very nice bathtub with a hand-held shower, which isn't convenient if you like showers. Other than th shower, we would give this 5 stars.
