Our memories, Atlantic Hotel of Pau!!!

Let me tell you about another personal story that we have enjoyed and relished over the years on our road warrior trips between France and Spain. This is an updated older post about a hotel in Pau, Pyrénées Atlantiques dept 64 of the region of Nouvelle Aquitaine.

While making the runs and been a long distance driver (even done it without stops just to gas up), we tried the peaks of Somport (see post)  for many years and welcome the building of the tunnels. En route, we decided to stop by for a rest day in Pau, and passed by the Atlantic Hotel. It has been our stop ever since several times ! Memories forever with my dear late wife Martine.

Early on in 1990 we did a stop by here by chance just coming in to town on our way to Madrid with what was then my girlfriend, Martine.  Every time we passed by here we did reverence to the hotel even in years we did not stayed we passed by anyway!  Eventually boys were born and we have 3, coming by car again we stopped here in a family room! And we told stories of their parents,,,. Eventually, we came back and even passed by again with the boys in our trips in the area and on the runs to Spain. Pau is unique and very memorable spot for us, even meeting the Tour de France bicycle race here!

I like to tell you a bit about a hotel which of course, I highly recommend especially with family on a good reasonably price hotel. The Atlantic Hotel  , 222 Avenue Jean Mermoz, Pau, off the autoroute  A64 sortie or exit 10 and go to city center toward the N134 direction Zaragoza or Saragosse Spain over the Pyrénées! You got it on your left hand side.

This hotel has recently changed ownership in the Citotel chain (very good chain of affortable hotels in France). Very welcome smiling and good advice. Impeccable room, good bedding, a room of independent shower of the WC and effective Wifi. No noise. Elevator. Breakfast rich and well stocked. Free parking, which is a plus in Pau. Restaurants nearby. Very good prices for this two stars we recommend. Excellent value!  The economical Atlantic Hotel provides 24 rooms with bathroom, cleaning services, newspaper service and tour assistance for the comfort of guests. Guests will enjoy a convenient location close to Bernadotte Museum (native general line of kings of Sweden now) . The accommodation is 30 minutes walk (2 km from city center/ downtown) to the center of PauThe family room ,the one we always rented ,consists of 2 interconnecting rooms and has a satellite TV, a shower and a bathtub. The room features a flat-screen cable TV, a wardrobe, a desk and heating. The en suite bathroom comes with free toileries ! Very nice for a family on the run!.Again recommended!
