3/5 Okay

Happy face iconLiked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The location was fantastic. Right in the main square and 5 min walk to the beach. There are ocean views available Annoyingly, the air con is controlled at the main reception so you need to tell them what temp you want. If you wake up hot / cold in the night, you would have to call down to reception to change the temp, or turn it off in the room. There was no bottled water included which felt very tight for a $260 room! We really are paying for location. When I was standing on a stool to put my hand over the vent to see if the AC was working, I could see heaps of dust, so my thoughts on cleanliness were divided. Clean bed and surfaces that are visible but not a lot of attention to detail. You also need to book parking in advance which we didn’t realise so that was full but the underground parking in public car park is only €16 for 24 hours, and this is the same car park for the hotel anyway. We had a simple breakfast which was nice and fresh so no complaints here and overall we enjoyed our stay. As a regular hotel guest I have experienced many standards and for the price I just get it packet that... “Je ne sais quoi’

Building site
No car Sunday in Biarritz which the hotel didn’t tell us prior to our stay, even though it happens the first Sunday of every month. Took us over an house to find the hotel & car park, in the end we parked elsewhere & walked. Hotel reception was in the middle of a building site as was our bedroom, which we later found out. Building work didn’t finish until gone 11pm on Sunday evening & started again at 8.30 the following morning. Right outside our room door. This went on all day and Involved the water supply to our room being shut off. Apparently the whole hotel had no water. There was no mention of the building works on their website and it wasn’t mentioned in any of their emails prior to our stay. This wasn’t acceptable and if we had known we wouldn’t have booked here.

Cute old hotel, amazing location
Great location, so close to the sea and the city centre, in a lovely square. However, the room and bathroom are quite small and the hotel a bit old - which makes it quite cute but you can hear everything in the other rooms. It’s a great option for one or a couple of nights, but probably wouldn’t recommend for a longer stay due to the lack of space and the noise.
