Old-fashioned (but refurbished in 2006), the three-star, 100-room Normandie is a great bargain in a prime location on Bordeaux's main street of wine tasting. Balconies of upper-floor "Grand Confort" rooms afford sensational views of the city and the Garonne River—but for that pleasure, you pay twice as much, and the rooms still suffer from the bland, modular decor shared by lower-level accommodations. At least the boring interiors are usually offset a bit by floor-to-ceiling windows framed by heavy drapes.
