Firstly the directions need a little work...
From the train station walk outside across the street and hop on either the A1 or number 10 Bus. Get off at Biarritz Central (called something like mieling look at the bus station map and figure it out.) alright so your off the bus. you are on Av Louis Barthou. your probably facing a little bus station kiosk. turn around, take the first street on the right. At the end of this street turn left. you are on Av Edouard VII Cross the street. your first look at the water. nice.
continue along Edouard VII past the first little side street leading down to cafes, the casino and the beach. Take the next street on the right. You are on PL. Georges Clemenceau. continue along this street as it soon becomes Rue Gambetta. The keenest of eyes might spot a white building with Hotel St. james written on it. Others can walk past caffe azoka turn left past the caffe enterance and into the little doorway. this is st james.
So the door is unlocked. cool. walk in up the stairs and check in at reception. oh no bro. the door is locked. read on to choose your own adventure...
If you have a phone call the number written on the door. you will be given a code and your room is probably unlocked upstairs. check yourself in.
If you have a phone card but no phone.... walk up the street and you will find a phone booth. phone cards only. ring the number that you wrote on your sweaty palm and repeat above.
If you have no phone or phone card. then get out your laptop whip out skype and call the number add a +33 to get a french dialling code. the pword. Azokacaffe should help...
The Hotel itself is clean and nice. it can get a little loud when the men heat up the bar across the street. The wifi is touch and go upstairs. sometimes painfully slow. Supermarket up the street is handy.
