Reviewed 27 August 2013

We spent 5 nights here in August 2013. It's a fine hotel and our room was small but perfect. The hotel is well-located - about 5 minutes to the beach, and even closer to some wonderful local restaurants and bars. The staff were great and were very helpful in providing us with maps, bus and train timetables, and directions to places around town. Highly recommend this hotel.

Excellent hotel, clean and modern, very friendly and helpful staff. Room and bathroom were very small but got the job done ok. Breakfast was good value. Ideal base for a short stay in Biaritz and would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone planning such.

Perfect charming small hotel to access all that Biarritz has to offer. Being a frequent solo traveller I tend to take service to heart. The owners of Oxo are extremely friendly and thoughtful. I stayed at the hotel on the tail end of a surf trip and was interested in exploring more of Biarritz. The owners suggested a soak at Thalasso Spa Thalmar . They even set me up with a bathing cap and towel. It is a very local experience with families and folks of all ages getting the kinks out. The walk from the hotel was fabulous and I suggest you time it to enjoy sundowner at Les 100 Marches. As the other reviews have stated, the rooms are small but give you everything you need. Surf is in walking distance and the hotel will store your board. Try Viennoiserie down the street for morning pastry. Hard rain on my last night drove me next door to Los Dos Hermanos, a communal style seating restaurant. The hostess not so in tune to a single dinner sat me basically in the bus station. This was not unnoticed by the very animated bartender who immediately sent me a glass of champagne. He seemed to be a bit of an institution to this restaurant. A good number of regulars seem to show up for his antics. He definitely turned around the dinning experience for me. The boudin noir was delicious. Great value for the location and service.

We stayed in Oxo in June 2012, based on the recommendation of our younger daughter who had stayed there in 2011. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the staff were both friendly and helpful. The room was compact but comfortable; the breakfast was good; we hope to stay there again as we enjoyed Biarritz and found the Oxo to be a great place to stay. We are not easily pleased but were very pleased with the Oxo - where the Pyrenees meet the ocean. If you go to Biarritz, make time to visit the TLB restaurant. Table le Basque - excellent food and reasonable prices. S & D M Dublin

Room Tip: Be prepared for a small room; however, I don't think this should spoil your stay

This hotel has a very modern, clean-cut feel to it with pleasing decor and a welcoming atmosphere! The room was small and somewhat cramped but ideal for a short stay. The 'wardrobe' is in an alcove open to the room, which was absolutely fine but the lack of lighting in this part of the room made it very difficult when unpacking clothes or even trying to find them once hung up....this could easily be sorted by putting a light in the alcove. The shower room was very functional and suitable to our needs. The hotel was very clean and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: If you are travelling during the warmer months check out about air-conditioning as the rooms are sma...
