Here to explore the wines of the Bordeaux region? This ultra-modern hotel is perfectly placed for the fantastical Cité du Vin wine centre. The hotel is quite a conversation piece, dramatically clad in pale Corian, its facade angled like a giant hacked chunk of ice, with views over the river Garonne. Next to the tram line, the hotel is convenient for the mainline station and transport to the airport. Spacious rooms have groovy midcentury furnishings, and those on the top floor have superb views. There’s free wifi, and parking on site. Check what’s happening at the nearby World War II submarine base, now a fascinating cultural centre.
