Hotel St. Christophe feels like a small Parisian boutique hotel that was transplanted just steps away from the Rotunda Fountain in Aix-en-Provence. The location is perfect; the rates were reasonable; the secured parking was a bonus; the recently renovated rooms and modern baths were immaculate; but fair warning: our rooms were quite tiny. The bath and bedroom were almost the same size. During the renovations, they would have done well to take a little space from the graciously-sized bath for a little extra room around the bed. That being said, I didn’t come to Aix to spend loads of time in the hotel room. So, it more than suited my purpose of a nice place to stay in a great location.
You access the hotel lobby by walking through the restaurant, Brasserie Leopold. The breakfast in Brasserie Leopold offered a wide variety of breads, pastries, cereals, juices, etc. We also had a nice dinner at the hotel on one evening. You need to plan ahead and get a dinner reservation, as the restaurant is very popular with locals.
Given the price, atmosphere, private parking and great location, I would recommend the St. Christophe as long as those receiving the recommendation understood the limited size of the bedrooms.
