Location- on a corner of very busy roads so nowhere to park outside. Get your sat nav to take you to Gare de Midi car park which is just a one minute walk away. 12 euros per day and it's open 24/7. We just walked back to the hotel after parking up. If you have a lot of luggage, this... More

The room was well-appointed, comfortable and had a quite spacious en suite with a good shower. It was very clean. We then asked reception to recommend and reserve a good nearby... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights recently and can highly recommend it. This small hotel has great character and is central to the main seafront and Biarritz centre. Our bedroom (301) had a small south facing balcony, was spotlessly clean (as is the whole hotel), with comfortable bed and the shower had a good strong flow with... More

Currently staying here for 2 nights. Room lovely, friendly welcome, great location. Couldn't fault it. Room is bigger than we expected with a balcony! Lots of lovely restaurants right on your door step. Very short walk to the beach. We will be back!

Made a reservation through laterooms. Paid up front. Arrived at the hotel to find the door bolted and the windows shuttered! Caveat emptor. Fortunately the people at late rooms were really good from an empathy point of view. However, neither the hotel nor laterooms have offered to do anything to compensate for the 2X5 hours driving with no room at... More

Nice clean, friendly and funky boutique hotel. Small room but well porportioned with a nice big bathroom, which is not so common in France. The staff were very helpful. The only complaint is the lack of parking which is a common problem in a good location anyway so can't really complain.. Centrally located with only a short walk to the... More
