We spent one night here while we went to a wedding in the nearby Hotel Du Palais. The front desk staff were polite and courteous, check-in was swift and we were given a room on the 9th floor which looked out to sea over the rooftops of other buildings. The room was spotlessly clean and the bathroom had a good-sized walk-in shower with a fixed shower head above and a hand held one as an additional option. The bed was very comfortable and there was no noticeable noise from the corridor or even from the street outside. The hotel was refurbished in 2009 and it shows - everything looks and feels new. My only complaint was the slightly high price of 160 euros per night in late September for what is still a fairly basic hotel, but for some reason everything is expensive in Biarritz and we did feel sorry for our friends who spent the same night in the Hotel Cafe de Paris, barely 50 yards away, and paid 400 euros for a very similar view to ours.
The Mercure President is also right in the middle of the shopping area of Biarritz - it is directly opposite the Galeries Lafayette department store, there are various bars and restaurants within a few steps and walking to the beach from here takes about 2 minutes. A small Carrefour supermarket is about 3 mins walk up the hill from this central area. The final icing on the cake was the midday check-out time (instead of the usual 10am or 11am) and the paltry 12 euros we paid for the taxi back to the airport which itself is just a couple of miles away. In short we had a great night's sleep and this hotel served its purpose perfectly.
