A nice hotel spoilt by the noise. Spent 3 nights here and we never slept because of it. Every night awake by people who were going home from clubs or bars. We are not ones to go to bed early. But we had to listen to people retiring up to 5am every night. We had room 103 that overlooks some...

Booked this hotel only 4 weeks before we travelled so was really surprised how nice the hotel was. I would have expected it to be booked all season. If all you want is a base in the centre this is for you. It is a maximum of 400m from The Grande Plage. Also a similar distance to the centre of...

We stayed at the hotel for one night on a recent trip. Unfortunately we seemed to pick a festival weekend which meant that nearly all the hotels were fully booked and overpriced! We paid €140 Euros plus city tax and without having breakfast for the night. The hotel is located a few roads in from the beach front. The location...

We stayed here for 2 nights on our way to San Sebastián. The room is good, bathroom is unexpectedly big so that was a good surprise. The receptionist is very friendly and smiley which gives a very warm welcome. The location is great as it is very close to everything.

This was a four night experience for a middle aged married couple in love ❤️. We arrived at the hotel before noon and to our surprise the room was already ready for us. What a pleasant welcome as we had woken up before 4am to catch our early morning flight to Biarriz. The hotel is small, with no restaurant, but...

My daughter and I stayed here for several nights. We liked the location. The room was a very nice size. It was clean and quiet. The breakfast was excellent. The hotel was small enough that you knew the staff after a day or two and you felt very comfortable there. The location was just a few blocks from the beach....

We stayed for 3 nights and it is an extremely well run 3 star establishment. Rooms were clean and bright and away from the noise of the town while still within a 5 mins walk to the centre if town and beaches. The hostess was friendly and professional couldn't recommend high ly enough

My sister and I stayed at the Alcyon for a couple of nights. It is a very nice little hotel, a short walk away from the beach, Les Halles, bars and restaurants. The staff are friendly and welcoming particularly as our plane was delayed. Our twin bedroom was large, clean and very comfortable with an excellent en suite and a...

My wife and I stayed here for the weekend of our 21st anniversary. We chose this hotel mainly because of price and location although at the €100-130 range, there are plenty of hotels to choose from in the area. There are only 12 rooms and we had the smallest room which was fine for us. It still had a small...

This is a fabulous boutique hotel. Great location. The rooms are charming and extremely comfortable. The breakfast is very nice. Christina, the owner, and her team, took such GREAT care of us! They made our wedding anniversary very special. It is close to some of the most fantastic restaurants (Le Clos Basque for one) and 7 min to the beach.
