An excellent hotel with very helpful staff and central location. We did pay the extra for the sea view which was great and the breakfast included a hot selection. Although relatively expensive, I would recommend a stay here.
- Free Wifi
This hotel was well located and central, and the rooms were modern and clean. It was quiet and comfortable enough - pretty standard for this class of hotel. Small good point - fabulous shower. Small negative point - since when do hotels give you one paper cup each in the room to make your instant tea/coffee in? The main letdown was the staff - I'm surprised at the other reviews, as I had a very different experience. The staff were dismissive and unhelpful at best, with the exception of when someone who appeared to be a general manager of some sort popped in for a visit, at which point they made more of an effort for the 15 minutes he was standing there. It's a functional place to stay, but I would probably try somewhere else if I visited Biarritz again.
Hotel is central. Not sure why the toilet and shower room are separate. It served a purpose but nothing great.
I drive back and forth from London to Spain every year and always stop off in Biarritz half way. I've now stayed at the Mercure Le President 3 times and have found it to be top notch every time. The hotel is immaculate and very modern, the staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and the beds are incredibly comfortable. The hotel is situated right opposite the main square and there is the convenience of a car park literally next door to the hotel. The casino and various shops and restaurants are all within walking distance.
I think every time i've stayed there i've paid no more than around 90 euros a night, which in my books is amazing value for the standard of the hotel.
I will definitely continue to go back there every year when passing through.
My wife and two daughters stayed here in July 2011 for a week. The hotel rooms were clean and well laid out, not huge but big enough for two people in each room. The location in the centre of town was great, easy for the beaches and we didn't get too much disturbance from the frisky denizens of Biarrtiz street-life at night. The breakfast was really good quality and the room was bright and airy. The really differentiating feature of this hotel were the super-friendly and helpful staff. They had a great sense of humor and really made us welcome on our first night when we got in late. Well done folks!
I would like to re-visit this hotel on summer as the beach is just front of the hotel. Don't miss this modern hotel. The room is too clean and all furnitures are colourful.
There is also a bus directly from the train station.
