This place is really charming in the heart of Saint Charles, just 5' walk away from the main city beach. It is an old basque house located in a lush garden. You feel really as if you were staying in a private property. Comfort was a bit basic but it is overall good value for money. Some of the indoor... More

No amount of air freshner can masks the smell of musty/dusty/dirt.The place needs a good overhaul and clean up . The reception/lounge area needs new upholstery the carpet on top of carpets going up the staircase need to be ripped out or at least need some cleaning chemicals applied. Get rid of the plastic flowers covered in dust which are... More

Hotel in a lovely building, good location with easy walk to the beach and shops. We booked a triple room which had ample space and comfortable beds. The hotel, whilst somewhat faded in terms of glory, was very clean. The proprietor was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was filling (pastries, bread, yogurt). We felt we paid a fair price for our...

Had a fantastic 5 nights. Have never been made to feel so welcome by an owner in 20 years of travelling. We were given great advice on the local area and aided in the booking of local events and travel. The hotel itself is a beautiful old home in a great part of Biarritz close to some nice cafes, shops... More

I'd actually rate Le St. Charles somewhere between "moyen" and "tres bien." From the exterior, this small, homey hotel exudes beaucoup de charme, and inside--with the help of well-worn antiques and a giant ginger cat in the common areas--add a dose of warmth, too. Our room was nothing special, but it was comfortable, clean, and quiet. The proprietor was friendly... More

We stayed here for one night during the shoulder season. The hotel is well located and free parking was readily available. There are a handful of stores a short walk from the hotel (bakery, bar, casino etc). While the furniture and decor is a little faded as others have noted, we slept well and the room (including bathroom) was clean.... More

For me all criticisme is usefull as it helps to upgrade the Hotel's quality and service. This customer is however over exagerating, due to fatigue, tiredness. It is possible that the cleaning ladies overlooked some minor details, in the bathroom. Unfortunately, due to the garden and the structures age, there are some fissures in the outside stonemasonery, which allows the... More

This family run hotel is just 10 minutes´walk from the main beach and shops in Biarritz. The staff are friendly and the owner speaks excellent English and French. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with good quality, older style furniture. It is ideal for bikers because there is a garage to lock your bikes in overnight. If you are... More
