About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- The hotel is in the centre of Biarritz -- the "queen of the Basque coast" (The Daily Telegraph)
- The resort town is one of Europe's surfing hotspots
- Aquarium de Biarritz and Rocher de la Vierge -- a landmark rock formation just off the coast -- are less than 15 minutes' walk away
- The town has six beaches and it also has a characterful Vieux Port (old port)
Mercure Le President Biarritz Centre is a 4-star hotel in the centre of Biarritz, a resort town on the coast of French Basque Country. It's five minutes' walk from the Grand Plage (the town's main beach), 10 minutes' walk from the Art Deco Aquarium de Biarritz and 15 minutes' walk from Rocher de la Vierge -- a rock formation off the coast that supports a statue of the Virgin Mary (its name means "Virgin's Rock") and has impressive views of the coast.
It is impossible to visit Biarritz without admiring the Hôtel du Palais, which was built in 1855 by emperor Napoleon III for his wife Eugénie as a summer villa and was later expanded into a luxury hotel that hosted the likes of Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardener.
Dominating the cliffs of Pointe Saint-Martin, Biarritz Lighthouse is a 25-minute walk away. Other attractions in Biarritz include two casinos, a golf course, a promenade and a charming old port. Les Halles, a quaint covered market hall, is five minutes' stroll away. With six beaches, the resort is also popular for watersports and is one of Europe's surfing hotspots.
The resort town of San Sebastián, which is "framed by golden beaches and lush hillsides" (Lonely Planet), is an hour's drive from the hotel.
The interior of the hotel is Pop Art-inspired, with quirky artwork throughout. Bedrooms are newly renovated and have free Wi-Fi. Some of the rooms offer sea views.
