The hotel is well run and staff friendly , very convenient for walking and restaurants plus beautiful view - however - after having a wonderful time which we extended by 2 days , we checked out and I handed over my Euro currency card expecting to be debited in euros as the receptionist had said exactly the cost in euros...

The Arc hotel has nothing going for it except its perfect location.The beautiful view from the room makes you forget that the room is drab, far from spotless, that the tub has no protection when you shower, that everything looks quite dated, that breakfast is meagre. But the moment you open the curtains and step out into the small terrace,...

What a time warp this place was. Luckily we were here for only one night. A very old world charm and helpful staff couldn't disguise that here is a place that trades primarily on its beachfront location to Arcachon basin. We were only in the room half an hour before the air conditioning packed up. Of course stuff happens, but...

Arc Hotel is backing on to a lovely beach bordering Bassin d'Archachon about forty miles west of Bordeaux. While the hotel is a bit dated by modern standards, its location is perfect for those who want to swim and the beach promenade make it a great centre for long leisurely walks. It has a pool next to the beach surrounded...

The hotel is a kind of "old French Style" - very friendly staff, and really best location close to the beach with direct beach access, free wifi, free Billiard, good sports room and jacuzzo (must be reserved). They offer 3 choices of breakfast - French style, no buffet. The hotel kitchen is very limited, but what they have on their...

The room was clean though with a working tv and air conditioning. The balcony was pleasant with a view of surrounding neighbourhood...

We visited this hotel 15 years ago and since we were passing Arcachon decided revisit for the night. The position of this hotel is excellent right on the beach with a small pool. The rooms are typically old french which has a certain charm .The staff friendly and knowledgeable .Would we go again YES it has the olf french feel.

The room is very old. The air conditioning was not functioning at all. After asking for 2 days the put a mobile air conditioning in the room but with a tube, means you need to leave the whole night the balcony door open. If you turn on the light there are millions of moscitos and the warm air will come...

Found this Hotel in a French guide "pied dans l'eau". It is situated right at the beach between the habour and the Center of activities. It has ist own Swimming pool. The rooms are nice, but lack a fridge. Breakfast is 18 € p.P. and it is really good for a French Hotel. There is no restaurant at the Hotel,...

Quaint little hotel situated right on the beach, a short walk from the city centre and the harbour. Rooms are a bit small, but the view from the balcony more than make up for it. It overlooks the beach, with views onto the entire bassin d'Arcachon. The bathroom is also small, but functional. Breakfast is nice, parking onsite is very...
