Stayed in Biarritz for 3 nights for an off-season break.
Location: Situated in a quiet neighbourhood slightly outside of the touristic centre. 10 mins walk to Cotes de Basque and Les Halles. Around €10 to the train station and €15-17 to the airport by taxi. Most attractions are within a walkable distance.
Room: I booked a classic room for myself, the size is spacious enough for one person (plus a balcony). The room is clean and tidy. I agree that the edges are a bit tired in places, though it's minor to me.
Meanwhile, I enjoyed the shower stall very much. Spacious and satisfying.
My room is facing a primary school, so in the morning I can hear kids going to school. It's not noisy at all, but I can hear it.
Breakfast: There are two options for breakfast. One is the express one including coffee, orange juice and Vienniose. Another one includes some regional produce, such as charcuterie, cheese and gateau de Basque. I don't usually wake up early enough for breakfast, but this time I happened to wake up early, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's certainly worth trying.
Service: I'm impressed by the service in general. Most staff that I encountered are friendly and helpful. Yann, the reception staff, in particular, is amicable and accommodating. He made some good recommendations on places to go. I also had some particular demand, and he managed to sort them out for me. less
