This hotel is lying in the center of beautiful Bayonne, and is within walking distance of the railway station. The room I got was large, with a large bathroom and a bed which was broader than it was long. The bed could easily have fitted 3 persons. I also appreciated the tea-cooker and the minibar. Breakfast was very good, with... More

This hotel is in the centre of Bayonne and therefore convenient. However, the breakfast is stupidly overpriced. The rooms were tried and the bar was closed. The hotel was virtually empty which perhaps say it all.

Charming hotel, very well located and the staff were friendly, bilingual and helpful. The bed was very comfortable and the room clean and quiet. Breakfast and coffee available. Close to the old city, attractions, tourist office, boys and train services and shopping.

This hotel is right in the city centre and if you are lucky, you might be able to park temporarily in the yellow hatched box outside the hotel, but only to check in and drop your luggage.
