Location of the hotel was great. There's a free car park over the road so good if you've hired a car. Room 2 was small but adequate. Wifi and air con included so can't really argue with what you get for the money. It was clean with a good shower but the staff were really helpful and cheery. Would definitely...

Great location - 10 minutes walk from town and beach. Modern, chic hotel with lovely reception and great rooms - warm, comfortable, kettle, modern, clean, tidy, practical and functional but far, far too small. The shower is ok but right next to the toilet - no room to turn round or move. The bed completely dominates the room and is...

I was a little disappointed because I thought the hotel was going to have more of a Basque feel to it. The carpet in my room was a bit worn, but overall the room was clean. The bed was comfortable with nice bed spread. There was coffee and tea with a nice brewing machine in the room. The water bottles...

It's a fifteen minute walk to the beach and promenade but for the price we paid location is not a complaint - we knew where we were going. Rooms are fine but a bit formulaic. Parking is easy which is a bonus. Staff were great. No complaints but no particular stand out.

Great location. A quiet neighbourhood yet a short walk to the central city. Rooms were fabulous.. Great colours and design, comfortable beds(stayed an extra night because of the bed), and nice details.. (Nespresso maker is always a nice touch in my opinion). Best part of all was the staff!!! Exceptionally helpful, go out of your way to make you feel...

Very Quiet, perhaps for my group, but this Hotel is well up to and at times beyond what you might expect for great Western. the last word in luxury, perhaps because of great competition at this end of the market in Biarritz. Staff have english but prefer you use their native language. The Hotel is very centrally located and no...

Updated modern rooms, very friendly and helpful staff, very good location and VERY quiet rooms. We stayed in many hotels through Europe in September and this one sits at the very top of the list. The hotel has employed very good staff, in particular on reception. We have great memories of this seaside town and made all that much better...

The Karitza was a reasonable hotel not too far from bars and restaurants, we found a restaurant quite easily (Bistrot Biarrot) without too much trouble. The room was clean with a comfortable bed which is very important when travelling, not a particularly large room but adequate for a 1 night stayover. Bathroom also clean, towels good. Didn't have breakfast but...

Everyone that we spoke to was friendly. All staff spoke great English. The hotel is clean. Room was perfect. i loved the nespresso machine in the room. The pool was of medium size. Big enough for a swim (that was important for me). The hotel location was great for exploring Biarritz.

Having stayed here in August at £150 a night I was desperate to leave. On the upside the receptionists were just lovely but everything else was a big no. The hotel is about a 10-15 mins walk to the central town and the rooms were just minuscule just really really tiny, and reminded me of a student hostel decoration wise....
