Myself and two friends booked a triple room for three nights at the Hotel Du Globe. As the price was only 96 euros per night for the room, we were expecting a real no frills hotel, but we were pleasantly surprised. Although our room wasn't huge, it was clean, well furnished and had two balconies looking onto the Cours Sextius. Traffic noise was not a problem as we had double glazing and automatic shutters which cut out most of the noise.
As the hotel is open 24 hours it didn't matter what time we came in and the staff were really helpful and friendly. We didnt take breakfast in the hotel as there was a fantastic boulangerie/patisserie pretty much across the road which did fantastic breakfasts at half the cost of the hotel.
Pretty much everything you need in Aix is a 10 minute walk away and the Cours Mirabeau is close by.
Be warned - if you stay over a saturday night, sunday morning in the summer time, there is a massive car boot sale that takes up the whole of the cours sextius and they start setting up the stalls really early!!!!
Great hotel, would highly recommend and great value too!
