Reviewed 14 July 2010

We stayed here for 5 nights in July. We found it comfortable and very clean. We had the breakfast one morning which was very nice. Good value at 7 euros but we are backpacking so didnt have the other days. It was peaceful and pretty quiet. The couple on the front desk seeemed nice but we dont speak French and there English is limited so we didnt get a lot of help. Close to the beach and away from noisy traffic. Freee Wifi was great also. We would be happy to stay here again.

Cosey little hotel just around the corner from 'les halles', and within easy walking distance from the city centre of Biarritz and the beaches. The room was cosey and clean, and the bed was very comfortable. Had a great stay, didnt try the breakfast as we ate out each morning at the boulangerie and snack/café bar on the beach front. The only negative points about the hotel was that there is not much parking around the hotel. The street is free, but often full. Also the lady at the front desk was quite cold and didnt want to make much conversation. We weren't there for small chat, so wont stop me from going back! Definately recommend this hotel! Great 2*!

Hotel Gardenia is a cute little family run hotel. The rooms are very clean and look like they have been recently re-painted/carpeted. It is located on a quiet street which is about a 5-10minute walk to the beach. There are some nice little cafes and bakeries around the corner from the hotel. The people at the front desk are nice and accomodating.

Biarritz is an expensive place as we found when visiting for the weekend to watch Gloucester vs Biarritz at rugby. This hotel is simple and unpretentious, but for Biarritz is excellent value for money. The hosts are charming, rooms a bit simple and old fashioned, but perfectly clean. Very quiet location - but only 5 mins walk to the town centre or beach.
If you're lucky you can park on the road outside. There is wifi available for €2.
Breakfast is simple, but good value at €6 (the price of a beer in town).
We ate at Hernani and Bistrot Les Halles - both of which were excellent.

We were a party of 9 people and booked Hotel Gardenia for a couple of days during Easter vacation in Spain (the frontier is quite close to Biarritz, a 30 minute drive)
The hotel is wonderfully located iwhithin the city center, close to several bars and restaurants.
The couple in charge were extremelly friendly with us, even they pointed us where to park the car without paying.
The rooms have been recently redecorated with bathroom ensuite, all of them were different but really nice.
Breakfast is a must, since we did not take it the first morning and we should have done it, because it happened to be really expensive and pricey in a place not very far away. We paid a lot of money for a whitecoffee and a croissant (4€ for the coffee and nearly 5 for an orange juice-although delicious-) while in the hotel breakfast was 6€ for coffee, juice, croissant and toast with butter and jam.
the area really deserves a visit and I would really recomend going to that place, double room is not more than 55€ and as I said is a clean and convenient place to stay.

Stayed with a group of 13 rugby fans for Biarritz v Cardiff Blues.
Hotel opened especially for the weekend of the game. Had a great weekend, hotel was accessible and affordable, important in Biarritz where prices were eye-watering with the weak pound. Owners Annie and Serge were lovely hosts and very informative and accommodating. Hotel only a five minute stroll from anywhere and there was a restaurant de nuit only a minute away, perfect for late night singsongs. Have breakfast at the hotel, only 6 euros, and well worth the value. Highly recommended for a sound, no-frills stay in a very beautiful area.

The Hotel Gardenia provided everything I was looking for in a hotel - - small, friendly, clean, in a quiet location and friendly on-site owners. What more could one ask? The room was spacious with a window on an interior courtyard, and the street was residential, but within easy walking distance of the town centre and the front. The breakfast room was clean and pleasant, with a wide variety of breakfast choices. There was even a resident cat and dog, so I felt right at home. Biarritz is an incredibly beautiful spot, and I was was grateful to have found such a lovely base to view it from (thank you, previous Trip Advisor posters!). If you are looking for a clean, reasonable, quiet and friendly spot, this is the hotel for you. I would also recommend taking a day trip to Bayonne, another majestic Basque location.
