“Very disappointing”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

Location cannot be beaten but room we stayed in was by far the smallest hotel room we have ever stayed in, even by European standard, could not even open suitcase without it been on the bed. The "terrace" felt like it was about to collapse at any given moment and tiles were so badly chipped that I cut my foot on it. To add insult to injury, was overcharged on check out by some 13euros but was that glad to get out of there that I didn't bother to complain. To be fair did request upon booking for a room on a high floor due to the comments read on trip advisor re noise, which we got (4th floor) and back of hotel, so noise was not a factor. On climbing the stairs to our floor one day did notice that the first two floors seem to have been renovated, so perhaps rooms are better on lower floors. Either way would not stay at this hotel again regardless of price.

Stayed 3 nights great value. Can see why it might be noisy in August lots of bars around but not a problem in the first few days of September. Lovely well appointed room. Fantastic location beside the old port lots of restaurants, bars, shopping, beaches and views right outside the front door.

Hotel with a nice position but can be a little noisy at night if you have a rum at the front. Newly renovated rums with nice bathrooms. Very helpful staff who also gave good recommendations. Buffé breakfast costs extra but is well worth the money.

This is the typical hotel you look for when you want to go sleep in a cozy room in such an excellent place as Biarritz, but you do not want to spend too much. The hotel does not offer many things, but the rooms and bathrooms are clean enough, although very small. The location is quite good, you can spend the full day by foot in Biarritz staying at this hotel.

Hotel Marbella is a hidden gem. Great location, helpful/friendly staff and very charming rooms. We had a room on the top floor that over looked the street and had partial views of the ocean. It was perfect. Highly recommend staying at this hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms on the top floors with balconies that overlook the street and has partial o...

Stayed here in August 2012 with my fiancée. We had an amazing time. The hotel is clean and very well located near to a beach.

Would stay here again.
