This hotel is run by two sisters who are very helpful and friendly. The room was clean and the bathroom recently renovated in a tasteful theme. The room seemed smaller than it actually was because there were two lounge chairs plus another chair in it. If one of the lounge chairs had been removed it would be quite large by... More

It was our first time in Biarritz and Hotel Alcyon was a wonderful place to stay! We were able to get free breakfast for our stay, which was very helpful. Staff was very accommodating also, even providing us with breakfast before our early morning (earlier than regularly scheduled breakfast) departure. Not close to the beach itself, but a very easy...

My husband and I made our first trip to Biarittz and wanted to stay somewhere accessible to the beach, but not beachfront. The hotel is small but modern and very clean. The location is good but can be a little noisy at night, until we discovered the window shutters which you wind down at night. We had a lovely balcony... More

My sister and I have stayed in hotel Alcyon in November 2014. It is a very sweet, lovely, comfortable hotel. It's greatest attributes are friendliness of the staff, the lovely decor, the wonderful and plentiful breakfast, and of utmost importance to travelers without cars, the very near proximity to the excellent public transportation system in Biarritz. Did I mention that... More

A wonderful hotel in a quiet location close to the heart of Biarritz. Very friendly staff, clean room, good breakfast. Shame there's no hotel parking but the nearby public parking is perfectly fine and €10 per day. Good restaurants nearby and 3 minutes walk from the Grande Plage

We booked to stay at Hotel Alcyon for a few nights in September on the strength of feedback on Trip Advisor, price & location and am glad we did. The hotel is in a great position - the beaches, town & its many restaurants/bars are all within easy walking distance. Our third floor room was very well appointed, clean and... More

The hotel is in quite location about a five minute walk to the beach. It is a beautiful old building with a modern touch. Biarritz is a good mix of surf culture and old style Classic French elegance. The staff are very friendly and help with every request.
