I would recommend Hotel de Gantes in a heartbeat. A fun lobby greets visitors, and the folks running the front desk were more than helpful, getting me set up in my darling room, ensuring I was connected to the free WiFi and walking me through ordering breakfast.
It has clearly been recently refreshed; the bathroom features a zero-entry walk-in shower with gorgeous chrome fixtures. All products are L'Occitane. There is a tiny fridge behind a mirrored closet, coffee maker with coffee, and the bed is terrific.
Finally, if you want to stay in the heart of old town, you can't beat their location.
Frankly, the level of design, cleanliness, and pure excellence surprised me given the very little press about this place. I suspect that won't last long. It's a gem, and I william certainly return the next time I'm in Aix.
