Tucked away out of sight, behind the understated facade of an eighteenth century mansion, is the Hotel Cardinal an elegant house made up of 10 personalised suites, where every guest can feel at home and enjoy More complete privacy. The Hotel Cardinal reveals a personality of its own, enriched with a unique atmosphere and a new interpretation of classic catering codes. Luxurious materials, such as velvet, brass and marble, are combined with contemporary furniture for a warm and cosy atmosphere. Ideally situated in the historic centre of Bordeaux, an area which has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Hotel Cardinal is a hidden gem, offering a fortress of calm and escapism for its occupants. Every morning, we will serve you a luxury breakfast (white tablecloths, dressage on the plate) in the private and the elegant setting of your suite, consisting of fresh and seasonal products, selected and prepared with the utmost care.
