Hotel Henri IV
Ranked #7 of 15 Hotels in Tarbes
Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

At number 5 in trip advisor I was expecting a little more. But I guess the biggest drawback of this hotel is it's just not modern and could do with a make over in the last 10 years. So on first impressions it appears un clean but it's not. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are a good size and quite. Our bed only had a double in it so we weren't comfortable (but that's a size not quality problem).The rooms had nice modem tvs and free wifi. We couldn't manage to lock our door from the inside because of the old style locks so that was a problem. Overall if you like character and charm (aka a bit old and run down) you'll like it here. We wouldn't stay again.

I booked this hotel via the internet and as is often the case my impression of its web image gave a misleading presentation.

On 21st August I was on my way back to the UK after two weeks of hard trekking in the Pyrenees and had booked this hotel expecting a night of relative luxury after living in gites and mountain refuges.

On my arrival in France on 8th August I left an overnight bag containing clean clothes at the hotel. On my return on 21st the receptionist claimed to have no knowledge of my bag and was reluctant to search for it. He said he would look for it the following morning. I was insistant that I needed the bag there and then so that I could shower and change out of my mountain clothes. Reluctantly he searched an adjacent room for it where it was located.

When I located my room it was such a disappointment that I decided not to bother to seek out, let alone avail myself, of the hotel's other "amenities". The general decor was tired and dated. An access panel on the side of the bath was not fitting properly and was sticking out proud of the rest of the panel. I was unable to have a proper shower due to there being no suitable bracket above head height on which to securely mount the shower head.

The effect of the shower I was able to have was negated by the absence of air conditioning. It was hot and humid when I arrived in Tarbes and I would assume that such weather is not unknown in August. Consequently, when I did emerge from the bathroom, despite the use of a towel, I remained no less moisture laden.

I decided not to pay extra for a breakfast and was able to eat for a fraction of the cost at the nearby station after checking out as soon as possible the next morning.

I had spent two weeks walking in the Pyrenees during which time I had spent many memorable nights in mountain refuges and gites. I enjoyed comfortable nights together with excellent food(including wine) for half the price I paid for the room only in this place.

I would be hard pressed to rate it one star, let alone three.

I have spent three days in tarbes now, and bless my luck in choosing the henri iv, mainly from the look of the outside originally. My room (17) has a small private balcony and is spacious, with a large bathroom. Everything works perfectly, is well appointed, and the staff are friendly & polite. To me it seems an absolute bargain and I highly recommend it. It has real character, but has modern equipment, wifi etc too.
