Bordeaux is an attractive tourist destination and July is the peak season so we recommend that you reserve your accommodation as soon as possible.
There are numerous hotels varying in standard and price, which can be reserved through the large hotel reservation sites such as Bookings.com, Hotels.com, etc. and many possibilities to rent a private room/apartment through internet platforms like Abritel/Home and Away and AirBnB.
We would recommend reserving hotels in the town centre, near the place Quinconces, from where you can take a tram to the Cité de Vin (see map below), or Chartrons area of Bordeaux from which you can walk to the Cité de Vin.
