The hotel is ideally situated, close to the beach and restaurants & shops, but alas the noise at night from the street was really quite loud! I thought a Thursday night would be quiet, but I guess it was Halloween and the start of vacation week... The hotel itself is clean and has nice old rooms with high ceilings and... More

We enjoyed our two night stay in room # 2! Yes, the shower head fell off the first morning so my husband took it to Arnaud who replaced it right away! He was also very helpful with our internet access and other instructions/directions. Extremely reasonable and within walking distance to some fabulous restaurants and the ocean. Closing the shutters helped... More

Very central, cheap as chips. Take ear plugs, pretend you're a student and ignore the small grey towels supplied by taking your own clean ones. Brilliant location, didn't really have any contact with staff but that didn't matter at all, pity about towels and non change of bed linen over four nights stay but still a fun place to stay...

While very central and cheap, Room 2 at the Hotel de la Marine in this hotel is right next to the entrance stairs, offering very little sound insulation. This means that you will be kept awake by every other guest entering the hotel (and Biarritz having a lot of nightlife, this means most of the night). Worse, the plumbing at... More

Simple, good sized clean room. Hot shower. Friendly helpful staff. Very central, in great area two minutes walk from swimming beach and five to ten minutes to surf beach. Great value, would come again. No complaints about this small hotel.

This is a great little hotel providing the best value in town. Excellent location very close to the Vieux Port. Nice rooms, good bed linen and towels. I always like having a desk in the room, and this had one. Arnaud the young guy on reception is also nice and helpful. I loved the power shower, but it leaked and... More

Hotel La Marine is the best budget option in a pricey town. The location can't be beat. Right in the middle of the action - bars, restaurants, shops literally just out the door. The beach is only a short walk away. The rooms are very basic, but clean, and the WIFI works in the rooms. The manager Arnaud was amazing... More

Great location and great price. You are right in the centre of Biarritz, with plages and night clubs right on your door step! Management of the hotel are very friendly and go beyond the call of duty, rooms cleaned every day and you have everything you need tv, desk bed and shower. When in Biarritz, I will look forward to...

We arrived much later than we expected at the hotel, after a long day riding on our motorcycles. Arnaud Darras, our host at the hotel, was very gracious: not only he did not show any disappointment in our delay, but offered us (at no charge) a covered place where to park our bikes---and came with us to retrieve them the...

If you want a no-frills hotel room in a great location then look no further. You walk straight in off the street to the stairs up to the rooms, with a tiny reception desk in the hall. I had a lovely spacious twin - for single occupancy - which had everything you need for a short stay. Wardrobe space, shower... More
