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.

This boutique hotel is actually located on Cours Mirabeau and that means prime location. The hotel has few rooms which are on first or second floor. There is no proper reception area (first floor) so you might not get a real hotel feeling. The rooms are modern with design furniture. Parking is difficult, but if you manage to get to the hotel entrance (which is on a pedestrian street) the staff will park your car at another site for 25 euro per night. Or, you might take a taxi from the nearest parking house. Excellent service. But very expensive.
