The only two positive points of this hotel are the kindness of the receptionist and the Internet connection speed. The hotel claims a 4 star category in Arcachon, but nothing fits with the classification. The entry hall is chaotic, gloomy and dark. The elevator is extremely old, the furniture is obsolete. You can guess that there is a fitness center,... More

We fell in love with Arcachon and hope to go again. I would stay in the hotel again. It's location is fabulous with direct access to the beach. I even did yoga on the beach. It's steep if you take s beach facing room and may not be value for the £180 we were quoted but since we were going... More

I stayed here on business for one night. Check-in was smooth and the woman at the reception was very polite and helpful. From the lobby you can access the pool which needed cleaned, it was full of sand. The hotel is right on the beach so this might be an ongoing issue. Between the beach and hotel are to elevated...

Hotel and room OK however the main selling point is its location on the sea front a minute from the boardwalk running parallel to the beach a short walk to town and several excellent restaurants. Parking is easy and free!

We were staying in the comfort hotel almost across the road and could not handle another night there so we decided to give this hotel a shot. A strange place really cool foyer with some very weird artifacts, i think the black naked gymnast would have been better located in a gay bar overall mostly decorated with rubbish art and... More

Took me a long time to know where to start this review. All of the people we came into contact with during a short, 3-night stay, were very polite and professional. After that, my impression weakens somewhat. The reception area is an eclectic menagerie of ageing furniture, relics, art objects and goodness-knows what else. Kitsch is in its element here.... More

We arrived at the Arc Hotel having made a reservation and paid the one nights deposit. The moment we walked into the reception area the hotel made a bad impression. The sofas were brown leatherette and very worn and there was a strong smell of mosquito repellant or similar. We took an immediate decision not to stay and explained to... More

We decided to stay a couple extra days in Arcachon after leaving our other rental. We chose this hotel based on its proximity to the ocean - we wanted to be able to walk directly to the pool or beach and be able to rinse off the sand easily before returning to our room. The hotel is not very close... More

We decided to stay in Arcachon for one more night. Our current hotel didn’t have any more availability, so we walked down the Boulevard de la Plage and were able to book the next night at the Arc Hotel. The woman at the front desk was friendly and accommodating. The next day we arrived to check in at an hour... More

We stayed here in July with two teenage girls and it was great. We had stayed 3 times before and while not a 'traditional' 4 star hotel if you go with the mindset of staying at a privately owned slightly quirky establishment it ticks all the boxes. The reception is very welcoming and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. We... More
