Reviewed 8 October 2012

A nice modern hotel - we had a very comfortable and pleasant stay. Just 2 or 3 blocks walk into the "old town of Aix" well away from the bizz + noise.
Rooms big and airy - with the added bonuses of a very good breakfast included in the room price - a factor I always think is important on a short break and - a lovely pool (inviting and relaxing) a real bonus in Aix !

Room Tip: Do not be put off by car showroom at side (roadside front) of hotel. In fact a bonus if you have a...

We stayed in the hotel for one night.
Clean and large rooms, with a great bathroom. We had a very comfortable kingsize bed with all the amenities in the room that you may need.
The breakfast is well presented and caters for all tasts. It is good value for money. Try their yoghurt it is very tasty.
Two english news stations on Tv.
We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel and can recommend the hotel.

Reception staff very helpful, 10-15 mins walk from centre of Aix. Comfortable bedroom and beds. Good breakfast. Our first stay in Aix and pleased with the choice. The pool was a bonus. Pleasant bar. All staff were pleasant and assisted us with our onward arrangements at another best Western hotel in the region.

The room is very basic, but the price tag is kind of too high for what you get. The bed is quite good, which provide you with some good sleep. The air con is strong enough to cool the room down. I stayed in mid August with day time temperature as high as 35 degree C. It's too hot to go outside. It's located about 20 minutes walking distance to the city centre, where the restaurants are. A big supermarket is nearby, it's convenient.

My wife & I used this place as base camp when we visited Aix. As prior reviews stated, WALKing is just 10 minutes to most of what we wanted to see and to at least 60 places to eat. Ingress and egress from the city to the nearby tourist towns and sites very easy.

This hotel is located only about 10 min walk from the town center. Easy to get to and park. There are a few free parking spaces in front of the hotel, a parking lot in back which is free at night or a secure underground garage for 10 Euros. The location is excellent for touring the town or finding the highway out. Our room though not fancy had all the comforts we wanted, good bedding, shower, A/C, safe, free Wi Fi, minibar, coffee machine, hair dryer, and ice machine in the hall. Even a little larger then our other European three star hotels. The staff was professional and customer friendly, ready with service, recommendations and directions. The restaurant had good service and atmosphere but we found the food to be just average. Did not even try the breakfast instead went to a local Pastry shop. Good value for the money spent and overall we were very satisfied with Le Galice and recommend it.

Room Tip: Get a room up higer if possible and away from the street

I don’t as a rule stay at Best Western’s. However, when we were looking for reasonable priced well located hotels/B&Bs in Aix we were coming up short-handed.

After doing some research we came up with this hotel. The service was very good and the room boring and bland but acceptable. It is about 10mins walk from the Cours Mirabeau so the location neither good nor bad, but central enough. The pool was a bonus, especially at this price.

The main reason this was a 3 star and not 4 star was due to the heating/cooling in room which was loud and gave both my wife and I a cold while we were staying here, which is less than ideal on a short holiday. I was not sure if I should post this review as I know its potential impact and wanted to be fair to the hotel and be certain our illness was because of it. After a visit to the doctor and much thinking we believe the only place where we were inside long enough and/or could have received it was the hotel, given its c30 year old infrastructure and feeling ill only after sleeping here.

As a result unfortunately I would not recommend this hotel.
