“Simple and central”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

Simple, good sized clean room. Hot shower. Friendly helpful staff. Very central, in great area two minutes walk from swimming beach and five to ten minutes to surf beach. Great value, would come again. No complaints about this small hotel.

This is a great little hotel providing the best value in town. Excellent location very close to the Vieux Port.
Nice rooms, good bed linen and towels. I always like having a desk in the room, and this had one. Arnaud the young guy on reception is also nice and helpful. I loved the power shower, but it leaked and flooded the bathroom (something I'm sure they'll fix quickly). Overall a top choice in a sometimes pricey town. Makes me want to return to Biarritz.

Hotel La Marine is the best budget option in a pricey town. The location can't be beat. Right in the middle of the action - bars, restaurants, shops literally just out the door. The beach is only a short walk away. The rooms are very basic, but clean, and the WIFI works in the rooms. The manager Arnaud was amazing in helping me to get acclimated - set me up with a map, marked the grocery stores, laundromat, location of a cell phone store etc. Couldn't have made it any easier for me!

On a side note, I stayed in September at the tail end of peak season, and the town was quieting down. It was the perfect time to visit - still great weather, and not too crowded!!

Great location and great price. You are right in the centre of Biarritz, with plages and night clubs right on your door step! Management of the hotel are very friendly and go beyond the call of duty, rooms cleaned every day and you have everything you need tv, desk bed and shower.

When in Biarritz, I will look forward to going back to this hotel!

We arrived much later than we expected at the hotel, after a long day riding on our motorcycles. Arnaud Darras, our host at the hotel, was very gracious: not only he did not show any disappointment in our delay, but offered us (at no charge) a covered place where to park our bikes---and came with us to retrieve them the next day. All of this with a smile. My room was basic, but clean, and the bed was comfortable. A great deal packaged in courteous service.

If you want a no-frills hotel room in a great location then look no further. You walk straight in off the street to the stairs up to the rooms, with a tiny reception desk in the hall. I had a lovely spacious twin - for single occupancy - which had everything you need for a short stay. Wardrobe space, shower and lots of hot water. There is a bar underneath the hotel and a bakery across the road where I had breakfast - although the hotel serves breakfast in your room if you want. 5 minutes walk downhill to the old port and a lovely beach where the locals swim every day in the crashing waves, or 5 minutes up the road to the Place Eugenie and excellent bars and restaurants. Everything is close at hand and I would definitely stay here again

Room Tip: I had a room on the side and had no problem with noise

I stayed in the Hotel de la Marine for 3 nights and it was a pleasant experience. It is close to the beach and right in the city center. Because it is surrounded by bars and restaurants it can get noisy during the night. Take earplugs with you just in case. If I ever come back to Biarritz I would stay there again.
