“Ticked all the boxes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Updated modern rooms, very friendly and helpful staff, very good location and VERY quiet rooms. We stayed in many hotels through Europe in September and this one sits at the very top of the list.

The hotel has employed very good staff, in particular on reception. We have great memories of this seaside town and made all that much better by having stayed at this hotel.

Room Tip: we stayed in a few rooms. All were as good and as quiet as each other.

The Karitza was a reasonable hotel not too far from bars and restaurants, we found a restaurant quite easily (Bistrot Biarrot) without too much trouble.
The room was clean with a comfortable bed which is very important when travelling, not a particularly large room but adequate for a 1 night stayover. Bathroom also clean, towels good.
Didn't have breakfast but decided to go to an American diner BIG MISTAKE what a rip off that was, perhaps we should have stayed at the hotel.

Everyone that we spoke to was friendly. All staff spoke great English. The hotel is clean. Room was perfect. i loved the nespresso machine in the room. The pool was of medium size. Big enough for a swim (that was important for me). The hotel location was great for exploring Biarritz.

Having stayed here in August at £150 a night I was desperate to leave. On the upside the receptionists were just lovely but everything else was a big no. The hotel is about a 10-15 mins walk to the central town and the rooms were just minuscule just really really tiny, and reminded me of a student hostel decoration wise. Lots of little niggles like the room not being cleaned till 4pm, lack to atmosphere in the common areas, and unreliable wifi, there was a pool but not somewhere you would want to dwell for any length of time. Not value for money at all.

We stayed here for one night at the beginning and one night at the end of a week's holiday. Lovely staff, funky rooms, a pool and great breakfasts. We would happily stay here again for longer. It was nice to be a little bit out of town but close enough to walk. I recommend it. It was a real find.

We have been at the Karitza Hotel for 6 nights and we recommend it without any hesitation.
Very nice, welcoming and helpful team. Excellent level of services. New renovated rooms decorated with refinements. Very good quality of the beds and very quiet hotel. The breakfast was very good and well furnished for all tastes as well as all the dinner prepared by the very nice “Chef Cuisinier”. My Swiss colleagues will particularly remember the desserts which were always very tasty and original.
A very nice hotel close to the beautiful town center of Biarritz! Do not hesitate to book this hotel!

Found this hotel to be well located, about a 5 minute walk to centre of Biarritz and about 7-8 minute walk to the beach. Also has a bus stop more or less at the door that serves the airport.

Stayed for 4 nights and got a very good deal. Breakfast is a bit pricey at €13 or so per person, we didn't have it as there is better value in local cafes.

Found the staff very friendly and all had very good english so there was no communication problems.

Room was a decent size and was well cleaned everyday. Only problem with the room was with the bathroom, very large bathroom would get flooded when having a shower.

Hotel also has a very nice outdoor pool. There is a supermarket and lots of cafes/restaurants close by. Hotel is a great location for exploring Biarritz and further afield.

There was free wi-fi in the hotel, however, this was very hit and miss and failed to work a lot of the time.
