“Perfect spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2012

We stayed at this hotel for a short weekend break in November. The location is perfect, right in town, but with great views of the sea. We had a compact but comfortable split level room. The lower level had a sofa and table allowing us to sit and look out at the sea in comfort. The bathroom was small (shower, no bath), but very tastefully designed with lovely fluffy towels and Chopard toiletries. We loved the headboard with its integral reading lights (just wish we could find one for home in the UK!). Breakfast was good (not amazing) with delicious croissants and pain au raisins. Small but comfortable bar and a good selection of wine. A very short walk to the shops and beaches. We were very happy with our choice of hotel and would definitely return again.

Very nice small hotel with rooms directly overlooking the ocean. This was wonderful although could be a bit loud if you are not used to the roar of the surf. We loved it. The staff were warm and welcoming and very helpful. Very good food in the restaurant. Room modern and clean with boutique feel. would benefit from having a chill out area for guests other than just the bar but this is a small point. Would definitely recommend,

So, here's how this hotel treats you. I arrived late in the night (10pm) after traveling 24 hours from the USA. Fried. Toting luggage & large surfboard coffin. Front desk woman, whose name I did not get (bad), greeted me with perfect English, plenty of sympathy & those welcome words "We have been expecting you, welcome to Biarritz, your room is ready for you." I asked if the restaurant was still open. Met with look of chagrin, non, the restaurant has closed, but let me ask the chef to put together a plate for you, yes? Yes. Thank you, yes. With wine, perhaps a beer? Yes. Dear lawdddy... yes. So, I get me gear into the room. The room is fantastique. Third floor, facing the ocean. Balcony. Spotlessly clean. Huge bed. Soon, a knock on the door & arrives a gorgeous wonderful meal with libations. A plate...?! This is a feast. I then crash for 10 hours in the very comfortable bed, balcony doors open to the sea air & the sound of waves crashing on the shoreline.

Service: friendly, personable, superb (most of the staff speak English & many other languages, too), they could teach the Cornell University Hospitality Program on how to run a top of the line hotel
Room: spotlessly clean, lush linens, excellent sheets, very comfy bed
Elevator: silent, small & fast
View: on the ocean side, excellent
Food: wow
Wines: wow
Assistance: top-notch, always helpful; excellent restaurant reservations (they aren't shills for the local 'deal')
Location: ocean on one side, city on the other; couldn't ask for better spot

Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Get a room facing the ocean. You'll get a balcony overlooking the small plaza in front of the h...

Biarritz is a lovely place to wander, shop and enjoy cafe or beach life and this hotel is right in the centre. Lovely room looking out on the piazza overlooking sea. Food and service good. Altogether great stay for one night.

We had originally booked at Cafe de Paris' sister hotel in Anglet, but we were phoned in the morning before we left England to be told that they had had a flood and would we mind moving to the Cafe de Paris in Biarritz instead. We ummed and ahed, as their was no pool, but we were assured we could use the pool at the original hotel, so said yes. Imagine our delight when we arrived in Biarritz to find we were in the finest suite at the Cafe de Paris, at no extra charge. We really couldn't fault the hotel in any respect. The staff were friendly - they had a sense of humour about our good fortune even - the views were magnificent from the huge private terrace, the bed was enormous and supremely comfortable and breakfast was leisurely and generous

Room Tip: Ask for 302 if you can afford it!

This is a very nice hotel in a very good location.
The room was clean, modern and very nice. It was a little more expensive than other places we stayed but overall I thought it was good value for money.
The public car park is beside the hotel and a bit of a drag with bags up stairs etc. but not too bad.
Staff were reasonably nice, the lady on reception didn't look too happy when we asked for our bags to be brought down but she did get it done.
A lot of these hotels seem to have a lack of staff \ porters \ concierge etc. which you would expect when you are paying €260 a night for a room.
Overall very good hotel and would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here on the last night of our trip to France, we had already stayed in another hotel in Biarritz at the beginning of our trip. The hotel was €265 for the night, room only but it is a very busy time & was one of the only places available. The hotel is beside a car park & has parking for €16 per day. It faces the sea & so has a lovely view. It seems to have been refurbished recently. The reception was small but functional. When we arrived the key for our room was ready so checking in was fast. The room was spacious, bright & modern. The bed was massive & really comfortable. A/C was on all the time & wasnt at all noisy. It definitely deserves four stars. the wc is separate from the main bath. Nice bar downstairs & a terrace at the front. It's probably the nicest hotel in Biarritz if you are not going to stay in the Hotel Du Palais (c.€500/night). One gripe: receptionist was often not at reception when we went looking & had to find her on 2 occasions. Weren't majorly informed on local restaurants & didn't give us specific recommendations but that was ok. Overall glad we stayed there & would definitely return.
