Very good value for money and a very friendly and professional reception desk. Good location. Some old charme. A great choice: Bayonne and Le Grand Hotel if you go to the French Basque Country. Hope to come back.

Great location on the main street right down from Castle Vieux. I stayed for 3 nights in a spacious and very nice room with a tiny balcony overlooking the street. WARNING: the tub was very old with slanted sides and quite dangerous in my opinion! The reception desk staff wasn't the most pleasant or helpful and the breakfast was nice... More

Stayed at this hotel for one night on my way to the Camino de Santiago. The room was lovely and the staff very helpful. The hotel is very conveniently located for all attractions including the Cathedral.

We were looking forwards to staying in Bayonne. Unfortunately we arrived at our booked accommodation late in evening and quite weary from a long days drive. First impressions were good as the reception and surrounding area were bright spacious and attractive. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful.

Hotel bien situado, pero depende que habitación te den puede ser una experiencia distinta.

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. I booked it as part of a value package and wasn't expecting much. But it had a couple of key positives: - Great location: Right in the heart of Grand Bayonne, close to all of the attractions. Less than a 10 min walk from the train station. - Very comfortable room: Room was... More

We had a beautiful big room with a very clean and modern feel. The bathroom was spacious and modern as well. There was a big TV with several English-speaking channels.
