“Sun Fest”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

This was our second stay at Hotel Biba. we came for Sun Fest. Its a funky/cool little hotel in a nice location, just a short drive from City Place, The Kravis Center and The Palm Beach Oceanside area. The first time we stayed our room was quite large, King bed and a little more of an upgrade. This room was really tiny with a queen bed, but it was cozy and we had a great stay either way. The continental breakfast is great! Friendly staff and nice pool area, it's a Boutique Hotel so there are not many Amenities, but everything you need for a relaxing stay in Palm Beach.

We had stayed in a number of chain hotels on route and received the level of service we expected however when staying in West Palm Beach we decided to choose Hotel Biba which seemed to have similar facilities but for half the cost.

We decided to be adventurous and book the Hotel Biba, it was excellent value for money, our room was very nice with a huge bed.

wiFi was free which we appreciated and worked, we had a very nice breakfast which was both healthy and with numerous choices,

Evonne the receptionist on duty was very helpful.

There was a Sushi Restaurant across the road named Sushi Jo which we chose for convenience and it was excellent too with nice choice of wine and an excellent menu even if you were not into Sushi.

Room Tip: Choose Sushi Jo across the road if you would like a nice meal

I stayed one night at Biba, and the check in was fine, the staff was pretty cool and the room was pretty and almost clean.

BUT, on the negative side:
-I could hear everything that was happening in my neighbors bedroom and worst of all, someone checked in at 2am, and as I was above the lobby, I heard everything, it was so loud!
-I wanted to go to the pool, but it was at the back of a parking lot, with workers working close by. Boo. And worst, the water wasn't clean.
-They serve a small breakfast in the morning, but with only cheap and fat items. Gross.

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Biba. It's an older boutique type hotel. The beds were comfortable. We LOVED the rain shower head. Great water pressure. The thing that stood out the most was everyone that worked was out of their way courteous. Even the cleaning staff was eager & willing to provide you with anything you need. The pool area was so nice. I'd definitely stay here again if I were in the area.

Hotel is clean, well-run, friendly and helpful staff. Forget phone charger? No problem. It's low-key, Euro-style minimalist. Continental breakfast. Happily sent forgotten scarf. When does that happen?

Room Tip: loved the 2-room, 2 bath suite on the second floor. Great for friends travelling together.

Let's just start off with pictures on here are false advertisement. My boyfriend and I planned a mini vaca which 2 nights we stay in west palm beach. So we decided to look for hotels, and we came across hotel biba. Looked at pictures and reviews and thought it is a nice place to stay at. So we booked it. Once we got there, we were quite disappointed. Nothing special about the room that was shown on pictures. TV wasn't on the wall it was on a little cabinet so when you lay down in bed you can't see anything unless you're laying on 3 pillows, which the room only has 2. There was also a little cabinet next to the bed covering a hole that someone probably kicked in at the bottom. Wish I would've took a picture to prove it. Bathroom was ok, but the room overall wasn't as expected. Service wasn't great. Checked in, she asked for a name and credit card and gave us the key and showed us a little map of the hotel. Overall, very disappointed. And not worth it for the price we payed.

I stayed in Hotel Biba a few years back , was very happy with my stay. Maybe my expectations were much higher this time but I didnt love it as much this time as I did the first time.
The room seemed a little dingy and I did not want to step on the floors without shoes on.
Another couple that we knew was staying there as well and their room was completely gut renovated! The floors in their room were amazing, bathroom was well appointed and everything was just nicer!! If I had known there was such a huge difference I definitely would have paid the extra for it.
