Grand Hotel Richelieu
Ranked #16 of 32 Hotels in Arcachon
Reviewed June 29, 2010

Hasn't been renovated in 50 years, the staff were attentive but strange. 100e for double room and we would have felt more comfortable on the beach. Left luggage is the telephone booth.

The hotel is at the centre of Arcachon where all the action and noise is and near the town beach which make it a nice location but it is what you pay for just the location. Our room (not on the sea front) was small and we could hear people next door or above doing their business in the bathroom. The carpark is just ridiculous. We wouldn't go back to that hotel.

Nice location near the beach, though see-view rooms are more expensive and mine was not.

Internet access available only in lobby. There's a printer
there too, which is nice.

Old-style wooden floors and furnishing may look nice, but the floors creak and you can hear from your room every step another
guest takes anywhere else in the hotel.

Windows are single-glazed, so it's cold at night (no heating
in September, though the temprature dropped to 10 degrees C)
and noisy in the morning (I think it was a grabage truck on the
street at 6:30am).

Breakfast was OK but not worth the extra cost - one danish (croissant), half a baguet, jam, a small apple sauce, and coffee (or tea or hot chocolate).

Room Tip: le stanze vista mare sono splendide ma il mare si vede anche da quelle laterali.
