Grand Hotel de La Poste
Ranked #12 of 28 Hotels in Saint-Jean-de-Luz
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 June 2015

We took the Superior Room, it was lovely. Beds were very comfortable. The en-suite is huge, not only do you have a bath with shower, also added is a v.large walk in shower. There is a toilet, behind a door, and a spacious area to do everything else in. V. clean room and en-suite.
Overall we considered this hotel well decorated, with a lot of thought put into it. The breakfast room is beautiful, has lovely wooden beams. Buffet breakfast (12 euros) was substantial, but I did wish they would cover over the foods to prevent any flies descending.
Lounge area is large and comfortable.
Staff all were welcoming, all spoke good English.
Position of hotel is excellent for shopping.
St.Jean has plenty of wonderful ladies clothes and shoe shops, you just can't go wrong.
Restaurants abound, not so bars, the latter are rather difficult to find but they are around.
Hotel is about a ten minute walk from the Plaza Louis X1V, the large Plaza on the harbour edge, where everyone seems to congregate.
Try visiting the Les Halles fish and food market, enjoy the fish soup. Also a must is the Church of St.Jean, very different.

Room Tip: Scan the photos. Email or tel the hotel and ask what room you might like.

This hotel is situated in a central position, just a step from Spain. (San Sebastian and Bilbao - 30 minutes by car)
In every respect comfortable and particularly the bathroom.
A slight drawback is that the parking lot nearby is paying

Let's start with the positives, great location, Eva is very helpful regarding sites and it is inexpensive. Most vintage hotels in which I've stayed have either tried to stay true to their historic decor OR modernize with more creature comforts. This hotel did neither and has somewhat rudimentary furnishings. I hesitate to be too critical as they may just be making ends meet, but it was not a pleasant end to our long journey.

Room Tip: Wifi was weak.

We enjoyed our stay at this Historical hotel which is just 5 minutes walk from the pedestrian zone and 15 from the beach. The decor is characterful and charming; our newly painted room was quite spacious and quiet; beds were comfortable, water pressure strong and wifi worked well. There are plenty of outlets, space to set things down on but no tea kettle. There is an elevator; paid street parking right across the hotel. Much of the hotel was recently remodeled and the hotel will be closed a few months this year to complete the remodeling. Not a luxury hotel but is much better than basic.
St. Jean is a lovely town well worth a short stay and the Grand Poste is a good choice for that. I paid slightly less than a hundred euro for our room and thought it a terrific value.

Stayed: October 2013, travelled with friends

Our time in St Jean was at the end of August and beginning of September, so hotel accommodation was expensive. We felt that at EUR149 for the superior room, we got a fair price. The room (and especially the bathroom) was very spacious and well appointed. It is important when you are staying for five nights that you have space for everything and that the bed is really comfortable. So many French hotels have small double beds, but not here. Also the cleaning staff, did a really good job, constantly replenishing towels and toiletries. The decor of the hotel is very 'Basque' and cosy. The location is excellent (and quiet) and they have an special arrangement with Vinci Parking nearby.

Room Tip: If you are staying for more than one night it is a good idea to upgrade to a superior room as the ex...
