My husband and I arrived in Biarritz with no reservations in early July. It was slightly difficult to find the street - and the numerous one way streets definitely hindered our efforts - however, after process of elimination we finally found it. The process was actually kind of fun. Check-in was smooth, easy, and the staff (at any given time)...

Come on let us redress the balance. This Hotel is not the Ritz neither does it claim to be. It is a two star hotel in France and its prices reflect this.Our party of 7 ranged in age from 8 to OAP. Reception staff were pleasent and helpful. The rooms were clean and the bathroom as clean as any I...

I was very satisfied with the Hotel Atalaye from my stay in July 07. Description from the website and subsequent details obtained from the hotel were 'spot-on' in terms of accuracy, no unwanted surprises !. The room we had was very bright with a great view of the Atlantic, and the staff were very pleasant and helpful at all times....

Well, I reserved a room back in Feb and had to cancel it due to travel changes a couple of weeks ago. I am still waiting for them to refund my deposit!!! Looks like it's not gonna happen as no one is getting back to me!!! So, dear people, please think before you book this hotel!

On our way back from Segovia, my colleague insisted for staying in Biarritz, I was in favour of stopping in San Sebastian/Donostia We arrived in Biarritz therefore without a reservation and went around, we stopped at the Atalye due to its location. How wrong ... first of all we were "greeted" by the manager/owner, who asked for advance payment in...

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Atalaye in Biarritz for a week in October 2006. We are mature travellers who look for a combination of value and interest and often visit France from our home in the south of England. We knew in advance that this is a two star rated small hotel of the 'belle epoque' style,...

Whoever wrote that this place is one step above a youth hostel was being generous. I would not recommend staying here unless you are college student travelling on a very tight budget (or, alternatively, a surfer living out of your EuroVan). Our room was tiny and dark. However, my main complaint is simply that the place was not clean.I was...

We arrived at this hotel at around 1600 to find that they had sold our room to other tourists. When questioned about this they suggested that we had given them a wrong credit card number. August is the busiest season in Biarritz and to be stuck without a room after a day's journey from Bilbao with a pregnant wife was...

Stayed 3 nights at the Hotel Atalaye in May 2004. This is a very basic, budget lodging -- one notch up from a hostel because it has private baths. Good location in town, close to Place St. Eugenie. Friendly staff. The clientele is generally quite young -- college students or recent college grads. No common areas other than the small...

There is no air conditioning, and the place looked like it had not been cleaned in a while. The bathroom was really unpleasant in appearance and functionality. The room was spartan and lacked personality. You can't beat the price and location, though. We had a small terrace overlooking a beautiful plaza, and it was close to everything. Keep in mind...

“My room (no.6) was behind the management sitting room and was basically on the ground floor, so I couldn't open the window at night, but I am sure other rooms have a good view.”

“Do NOT reserve a room here unless you want to be charged for a room / service you never stayed in nor used. This hotel preys on travelers and makes you put down a credit card before you stay so that they have it on file to steal money from. One sentence to best describe them-Theiving, Liars, Fraudulent, Dispicable and lowest of the LOW-Lifes”
