We booked a night at the hotel with their "Le songe d'une nuit" package for a romantic weekend in Aix.
We arrived early (about 10am) and instantly a room was prepared, and we were offered champagne. The hotel is beautiful, it's decorated in Empire style and the attention to detail is sublime.
We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a junior suite and the room was fantastic. The bath is set on a marble plinth above the bathroom and feels fantastically luxurious.
The level of service is exceptional without being over attentive; every time we left the room it would be tidied and candles and roses left in the bathroom and the bedroom.
Afternoon tea and breakfast were included in the deal and were delicious.
The hotel itself is about a 5/10minute walk from the center of Aix and about a 20 minute walk from the train station. It's close enough to allow you to wander into town but far enough out to be free of the bustling tourist crowds.
In terms of value for money we found the hotel excelled and I'd recommend investigating their website deals.
I'd recommend the hotel to anyone looking for a romantic getaway in luxurious surrounding. We had a perfect weekend.
