“Just fine”
Reviewed 25 May 2012

Stayed at the Oceania for one night, and the place was fine. Americans will be very comfortable here; it's clean, the bathroom is well laid out, and it has AC. Breakfast was quite good for a continental-type breakfast in Europe, and the service was fine.

My only issue: major slamming doors. I don't understand why hotels insist on installing doors that slam, and these ones in particular slammed quite impressively. Overall sleep quality was just fine, though.

I would also agree with other folks -- this place is pretty far from the city center, so although you get the consequent quiet/safe, I recommend this one for people with cars.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from the highway!

We have been traveling through France and Italy for the last three and a half weeks and this is the first hotel we have stayed in which has a shower separate to the bath -yay! All others have been shower over bathtans they are terribly unsafe. I notice that particularly in Italy that all bathrooms have got emergency call systems in their bathrooms and I suspect the shower over bath scenario is why.

This was a lovely hotel, with sound rooms, a lovely breakfast, welcoming staff and good food in their restaurant for the evening meal. It is about a 30 minute walk from the centre of town.

This hotel is located next to the highway where the noise from the trucks is impossible. The rooms are so small you cannot open two suitcases. The reception staff is not helpful and certainly not knowledgeable for the city of Aix en Provence. The brreakfast is the only positive thing about the hotel.

This hotel has small but modern rooms with efficient air con. A bit expensive in high season and a way from centre of Aix but all things considered a reliable hotel for the business traveller

Small room. Faux wood vinyl floor. No in-room safe. Effective air conditioner in room, but after returning to room after 2.5 hours, the room smelled like excrement, literally. Turned off the air conditioning and was able to open the window. Whatever caused the odour (no, not the room occupant!) did not return when I turned the air conditioning back on several hours later. Good sized shower. Location a little far from the centre of town if on foot.

Reviewed 12 August 2011

Escale Oceania was one of the few hotels showing vacancies for a visit to Aix during festival time. It was over-priced,bland, and the "chambre confort " cramped. Any suggestion that it is centrally located is inaccurate. Bus travel was quite efficient by day, but non existent after dark, with few taxis available to service a large festival population, so making the location even less desirable. It was clean but forgettable, and right by the main highway so opening a window was not advisable, nor swimming, as the noise level was unsettling. This hotel may work for people with cars who just want a bed, a free park and tours into the countryside, or as overnight 'business' guests, but it is not a good choice for the car-free visitor to the absolutely gorgeous and cultured city of Aix. Stay central if you are in the latter category, find a charming hotel, and give this one a miss.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not face the highway
