Located in south central Biarritz, the Kemaris is a few blocks east of the the beach, but is definitely within walking distance. Compared to other rooms we have stayed in in Europe, these rooms are a little bit larger, with larger bathrooms. Our room had a balcony, and even though we were a few blocks from the beach, we could... More

Very claen house, super breakfast buffet! Best is the both competent and very friendly staff! Kemaris is located in a very quiet little street, 5 - 10 minutes by foot from city centre and downtown beach. The hotel felt much more like a family run house than a world wide chain business...

Stayed in BW Kemaris - Biarritz for 3 nights in September 2016. Arrived at the hotel about 11am and unsurprisingly the room wasn't ready but the friendly man behind reception was happy to take our cases while we went exploring and told us our room would be ready at 3pm. Once checked in the room was nice and clean and... More

This hotel is of a good standard with comfortable spacious rooms. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. It is just a couple (10) minutes walk from the centre of everything. We were delighted with our choice of accommodation and we will be back.

On the last day of my stay at the Best Western Kemaris, I slipped on sandy steps to the beach in the center of Biarritz. The hotel staff called a doctor for me and went personally all the way to Bayinne to pick up the prescribed orthopedic splint as well as taking the necessary measurements and providing bags of ice...

Biarritz is not a city for the budget minders. Yet, among the substantial number of expensive hotels near city center Kemaris is almost a bargain. The rooms are not large and somewhat Spartan in furniture and the tendency to formica seems like a throw back into the 70's. Yet, the coffee making facility and balcony make up for most deficiences.... More

Friendly welcome and a good sized room that is clean and comfortable. 5 mins to nearest beach. 10-15 mins to main shopping and restaurant area. Parking 13 euros high season. Breakfast at 12 euros looks a bit pricey.

A short walk to the beach. Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Parking impossible outside the hotel so 11 euros a day for hotel car park essential. Rooms modern but hardly spacious. No bath. En suite had a "modern" wash basin which was hardly functional with water spilling out as its capacity was very limited.

The Hotel Best Western Kemaris consists of a main building and an annexe. Only the main building was open in October. We had booked a standard double room. It is modern furnished but too narrow to be comfortable. The bed is offering a good sleep. The bathroom is very small as well, equipped with a shower cabin. Wi-Fi is free... More
