      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Biba West Palm Beach

      Buyer Beware!

      from

      Biba is BAD! The room was just not right. It was cute in theory, but not in reality. The bathroom was GROSS. They asked you to put your used towels on the floor, and keep the ones you haven't used. We did that, but we found our used (STILL WET!) towels folded and put on our beds!

      Strike one. I was afriad to touch the tile in the shower because it was grimy. We went to the beach ( the pool was filmy!) and when we returned our fire alarm was going off. They took our fire alarm and said they couldn't get a new one until a few days later. THEN!!! We found a BUG!

      on one of the pillows. Needless to say we left....the man who checked us out was nice, and apologetic, but I will NEVER return to Biba (Hell) we moved to the PGA Resort...soooooo much better!! No need to even leave!

      Never again !!

      from

      Everything was poor but I decided to stay in the hotel. But on Wednesday,(12/04/03) they had a party in the bar. The hotel is really small; my room was in front of the partys place, with a really loud music, people walking in front of my room, drinking, etc. They moved me into another room that was in front of the parking lot with cars coming and leaving. Terrible night!!!. The party was from 10pm until 2 am. Aprox.TERRIBLE!!!

      Could Use Some Work

      from

      This hotel isn't really all it's cracked up to be. The room that I stayed in was very nice; two very comfortable queen sized beds with Egyptian cotton sheets, lotions that smelled like baked goods, a CD player, large TV..... The hotel itself has an excellent location, close to downtown, airport, etc. Unfortunately, due to the lack of carpet in the rooms and lack of upkeep for the gardens and pool, I was none too thrilled. I didn't have the opportunity to partake of the complimentary breakfast. I would suggest this place if you are able to obtain a great deal (below $70 per night), but otherwise there are much better hotels to be had in Palm Beach.

      Something Ain't Right

      from

      The hotel is not as it appears in the pictures. It is a little rundown and almost weirdly quiet. The rooms have no carpet, only lenolium. They are scented with some strange air freshener device that we turned off the second we entered and still had to wash everything we brought when we got home. Parking is a disaster. Bathrooms were gross, they had painted the shower tiles and it would peel off on us. The cable was out and the TV was making noises like it was going to fall down. The pool was ok, but again not as it was made out to be. And the staff was not all that friendly. I wouldn't recommend this MOTEL (its not a hotel) to anyone especially at a hundred bucks a night. I was looking to take my boyfriend away for a nice romantic weekend and would rather have stayed at the holiday inn.

      PS. Our room was right along the road (seperated by a fence) and all you heard all night was people at the bar and trucks passing by).

      Motel HELL

      from

      This place is terrible! No carpet, no shampoo in the "shower room", no place to put away clothing. Do not come here!

      An eNJOYABLE STAY

      from

      I arrived at the Hotel Biba in February, right after the big blizzard of 2003. The hotel was a pleasant surprise. The grounds are extremely well maintained, and the whole complex is completely private. My room was very nice, and spacious. The bath, however could use some updating, but it was very clean. The room had a big bay window, and was very cheerful. The grounds, and swimming pool are kept immaculate. I enjoyed the breakfast served daily in the Biba Lounge. The location is excellent at the end of Belvedere Rd., just a short drive to City Place attractions and a short drive over the bridge to Palm Beach, and Worth Ave. shopping. The staff was very helpful and the cocktail lounge is a great place to unwind after a day of sight seeing (in my case house hunting) When I return to Florida in July I will certainly stay at the Hotel Biba.

      Horrible!

      from

      The motel (not hotel) is rundown and is not what appears in the pictures. Whoever gives this place a good review is out of there mind. I did not stay there due to the conditions and had to redirect my whole vacation. Hotel Biba is on a main street with a wooden fence (approx. 10' high) seperating it from the inner city of West Palm and your next door neighboor is an auto parts store. The bathrooms where missing tiles and the furniture was not in tact. Maybe the Hotel looked as it did on the website years ago with some angled and airbrushed photography. Only if I knew then what I knew now. AND YES THEY WILL CHARGE OR PENALIZE YOU FOR THE FIRST NIGHT IF YOU CHOOSE TO CANCELL!!!! BEWARE!!!

      Hip Tropical Garden Hotel

      from

      My wife and I travel to Palm Beach frequently in the winter and always stay at Biba because of its hip design and excellent price. This is the best value in the area by far. We like the hotel's casual atmosphere (this is a flip flop and t-shirt hotel) and original, modern interior design. We also like that gardens wind through the property and you are constantly walking underneath coconut palms down aged stone pathways to get to your room, Biba Bar or the pool. Although not fancy, they spent their money where it counts: it has the most comfortable bed i have slept on at any price anywhere. It is (long) walking distance from downtown, cityplace and the bay but in a cute nighborhood. Make sure you go to Biba Bar on Wed or Fri...you will be pleasantly surprised.

      Style, Style and more Style

      from

      Hotel Biba is something out of SoBe. The hip hotel is hidden from the prying eyes of the masses and allows you to feel like you are the only one at the hotel. The zen like gardens at Biba are the perfect places to enjoy a drink and if you are around on a Wednesday or a W-end you don't have to leave the property because the party comes to you. On Wednesday the lounge party plays host to DJs spinning records and beautiful people. Biba is an experience that should not be missed especially if you can not make it to SoBe.

      Never again

      from

      I saw the BIBA ads on the internet and booked the "Hotel". When looking at the Hotel, pool, rooms and grounds upon arrival, it dawned on me what creative photography and creative writing can do to one's expectations. I did not stay at the Hotel

      but had to pay for a night. Never again!

      Mikey was at school again this morning but Coco doesn't go on a Friday so we all went to a diner for breakfast. Maddy had pancakes (what a surprise!), I had the breakfast special with eggs and hash browns, and both Dad and Jeremy had the breakfast special with eggs and oatmeal. I think Mum just shared a bit from everyone. It was pretty filling.

      After breakfast we went to ...

      We started our journey with a drink at a funky waterfront joint called Guanabanas nestled amongst the palms and bushes along one of the intra-coastal waterways. What a great way to kick back and relax on a Friday watching boats drift by and enjoying a hint of a breeze attempting to ease the heat. To prep for the next part of our journey, we googled ...

Played with Randy and Frank, two of Lin's golfing friends. Great day for golf - but getting hot. Car thermometer said 91 when we left. Stopped to "re-wine", then home for a great lunch. Great hospitality. Sadly, Lin back to work on Monday, we are off on further adventures.
