Ibis Budget Biarritz Anglet
Ranked #6 of 14 Hotels in Anglet
Reviewed August 26, 2012

I stay at etap hotels on a regular basis as they fit easily with my long distance travelling through Europe.
Whilst this hotel has clearly recently had all the rooms updated to the current standard the public space has not been changed and is still grubby. I do not understand why this would be.

The room itself was clean and the shower room excellent although water pressure was a little low. The new beds however are quite basic, a wood chip base with fairly thin non sprung mattress. On this occasion I slept well enough as I had just driven a 14 hour route. However I suspect if I hadn't been so tired comfort may have been an issue. Free wifi is a bonus and very welcome facility, The televisions were up to date and had a large channel selection although a few more more non French may be needed.
My main gripe with this hotel on this trip however were as follows:-

1. Cost .... we paid €76 including local taxes, significantly more than the norm for an etap hotel. For this price I would expect much greater quality. We were also particularly upset that despite a pre- booking and the higher cost the third bed was not made up for sleeping.
2. Reception .... Although quick and efficient the member of staff on duty was possibly the most surly and unfriendly person I have ever encountered on a reception desk. Absolutely no effort to engage in any type of human interaction, just desperate to complete the transaction and retreat to a room behind the desk
3. Outside car park ... Spaces too small meaning that it was difficult to open doors and many cars had parked over the lines creating wasted spaces.. There also seemed to be a lot of people hanging around and I was a little concerned about security.

The etap brand seems to be rebranding at the the moment to Ibis budget and I hope this doesn't mean that the already basic standard will fall.

Good value and clean chain. Use them but don't expect any frills, I recommend them. Souldy you have a dog this chain is for you. The rooms are very basic but that's all you need, the bed is clean and comfortable, the breakfast was also basic but adequate.

We stayed at the Etap Hotel Biarritz Anglet which was situated in a lovel quiet park area of the Town. The reception was warm and welcoming. Thankfully, for us -- "typical tourist" -- they spoke good Engish. The room was well appointed, comfortable and we had a good nights sleep there. There was no where at the Hotel to eat, BUT, we were directed to the Ibis Grill, which was only a few yards / metres away, to eat there. The food was very good AND, as we were staying at the Etap, we had a very pleasant surprise of a discount on the food bill at the end !!!! Good breakfast selection the next day to set us on our way. Nothing to say bad about the place

Have in stayed the previous night at Etap Hotel in Poitiers and enjoyed the experience was looking forward to staying at this one. The hotel was tired and grubby. The stairs leading into the hotel - 2 lots - the carpet was badly warn on the edge and very dangerous. The male receptionist spent all of his time smoking and talking outside the hotel and despite the fact that we were struggling with our luggage, made no attempt to be either concerned or help at all.
This appeared to be an older hotel and the rooms were much smaller. The window stay was broken so we could not leave the window open to let some fresh air in at night.
Was not impressed.

This hotel needs a general update.The carpets were dirty and worn in public areas. There was no air conditioning in the room despite temperatures of 30 degrees plus .
There was plenty of carparking and a good local restaurant
