“Nice and clean”
Reviewed 17 July 2011

Cheap, nice and clean, about as good as one can get in this price range (2 stars).

This is a nice little hotel, with basic but clean rooms in a great central location, near the beaches and lots of cafes/bars/shops (we even had a bit of an ocean view). However they are let down by really rude reception and cleaning staff. We were forced out of our room mid-morning every day so they could clean - and then they only changed our towels once in four days. The Wi-fi here is TERRIBLE. On the morning of checkout the staff barged into our room just before checkout time and started yelling at us to get out. Same for the other rooms on our level. We asked for 2 minutes and got yelled at again, then she turned off the tv and started changing the bed that we were sitting on. Would stay here again if the staff were changed.

This definatley cant be classified as a hotel. Rooms have paper thin walls you can hear people talking next door and rooms basically have 2 simple tiny beds with paper thin sheets, there were no curtains in our room (annoying when sun comes in at 9am) and the shower has VERY thin plastic doors- also smells of mould hard to describe but everything is just cheap about it, not one bit of luxury There is no check in after 7 at night....

The worst thing was the staff...check out was at 11am (which is fair enough) but we got a loud BANG!! on the door at 10am and a grumpy abrupt woman shouting "CHECK OUT IN ONE HOUR" then a BANG at 10.30 "CHECK OUT IN 30 MINUTES" then a BANG!! at ten to 11 "CHECK OUT IN 5 MINUTES" Then at exactly 1059 a woman comes barging though the door and props it open with a door stop...looks at me with a dirty look while Im pulling on my shoes and proceeds to start making the bed while Im beside her!!

Now In my book thats just a little bit rude...no need for it...

Location of hotel was good....10 minute walk into centre of town, was 110 for a 2 night stay so decent enough price. But i would say if visiting somewhere as beautiful as Biarritz throw an extra 40 quid into the accomm and get a wee bit of luxury...

This is a really poorly-constructed hotel with paper thin partition walls, i.e. you can hear pretty much all of your next door neighbour's conversation or worse. If you do have problems with noise in the middle of the night - and I did - there are no staff on site either to help you out. This is a hostel that thinks it's a decent hotel and charges accordingly. If you are tall, you won't be able to sit on the WC at your normal angle either unless you are a contortionist as the bathroom is ideal - for a Doll's House. AVOID!

Everything about our room was small – the room itself, the bed, the TV and the ensuite bathroom, which required a lot of dexterity to use without bumping into things.

As others have mentioned, interior soundproofing is not a strength of this hotel, although the double glazed window did a good job at keeping any exterior noise at bay.

However, the room was clean, the ceiling fan did a good job at keeping things cool, and the free high speed wi-fi allowed us to catch up on correspondence. The location is excellent, only a minute or so from the Vieux Port, whilst the price was also good, in a town of few bargains.

Whilst it was fine for our overnight stop en route to Paris, we’d probably look for something a little larger for a longer stay.

The Argi Eder was by far the cheapest hotel we could find in Biarritz and we booked it on that basis not expecting too much. If you go in with that attitude you won't be disappointed! The staff are friendly but reception closes at 7. The room was OK, tv didn't work very well but that's not an issue really and the shower was slightly tempremental! The hotel is noisy when the cleaners are in or other people take showers but there are plenty of lovely bars to put you in a coma so it didn't really bother us.
