“Great budget hotel, but it's not for everyone”
Reviewed September 3, 2007

This a great budget hotel that is off the main drag, yet close to the beach and some great restaurants and shops. Very small rooms, but very clean. Owners were very friendly. Our main issue was noise. Both nights we could here everything from everyone on our hall. The walls are paper thin. However, if you are looking for a cheap, clean place to stay in a beautiful town, bring earplugs and stay here.

This was a top find. The place is away from the main roads and far away from the bars, so this makes it tranquil. Its about a ten minute walk (max!) to the both nearby beaches which was handy. But maybe not as handy as the other spots slap on the beach. The view from our window was onto a block of flats but the backdrop was pretty cool.

The price was great for what we got. (A large double room with ensuite shower and television.) You can leave your boards at reception: Which meant no sand in the room, like in other places. Also the hotel owner has tried to be environmentally friendly, as you can see in the hotel.

We didnt have breakfast because we were out too early. Would book again considering the value for money, but judging from previous comments the room we get might not be as great. Recommended.

This hotel does what it says on the tin. It gives you cheap clean accomodation but don't expect luxury!

I stayed at this Hotel for 4 nights during August.
Good -> Great location only minutes from the beach
Bad -> Staff are unwilling to take responsibility for problems and tried to blame them on myself (one example was their very low quility phones that wouldn't work with French phone cards), staff are rude at times, the cleaning staff ate some of our food that was left in the room, very loud at night.
In summary this would be a great hotel if the staff weren't around and if there wasn't a 3 cm gap between the room door and the floor.

A great family run hotel central to all Biarritz has to offer. Very friendly and helpful English speaking staff, don’t be put off by the low price, I normally stay at least 4 star but their excellent free wireless internet service, allowing me to continue running my business while having a break, swung the choice this time. The rooms are super cleaned daily, the atmosphere is genuinely friendly and it is unbelievably cheap. The only minor drawback was the small W.C. area.

Reviewed September 1, 2005

We stayed at the Argi-Eder for a week at the end of August with two rooms, a twin at the front of the building and a double at the back. Both rooms were simple, nicely decorated and clean but the bathroom of double at the back was just a little too small and the wall to the next room was just a little too thin. Notwithstanding for a resort hotel in the High Season it was good value. However, although the breakfast was good enough as good value in rather more conducive surroundings can be had in town (try the Miremont salon-de-the for grandeur as well as a the viennoiserie).

Biarritz itself is pleasant enough although I preferred Saint Jean de Luz to the south. However, if its surfing you want Biarritz and the beaches around are ideal.
