“Outside of City - 10 Minute Drive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2013

Rooms are terribly small.
Not close to city center or places to eat.
We had no soap, glasses and couple towels.
Staff had to bring all of these to our room.
Next day we ample left.

Staff helpful to change our room and bring extra table and chair.
Nice and spacious shower.
Excellent beds and comforters.
Free and speedy Internet.
Relatively quiet compared to other hotels we have had in France.
Good selection at breakfast.
Great coffee machine.
Ample parking for small tour bus.

Hotel is quite a way outside of town.
Little in the area.

Room Tip: Be sure to look at the room - SIZE!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2013

Stayed one night with a tour group following a long day touring from Avignon and a walking tour of the charming city of Aix. Hotel is very basic. Was disappointed as we drove up, location is inconvenient to the city center and not many dining options nearby, plus we were tired, so all 50 of us ate in the hotel restaurant. The bar man turned head waiter did his best and he was to be commended for his effort and patience, but the kitchen was not prepared or capable of serving so many at once and it took well over 2.5 hours for mediocre food at best. Agree with other reviews that the breakfast was almost inedible, especially the mystery scrambled eggs. One positive, room had ample outlets for charging iphones, blackberries, ipads and tablets. No bath gels or shampoos except for an in-shower pump container. eck. Luckily we brought spares from a previous hotel. No in-room safes. Room seemed clean however there was a dust bunny convention on the floor and don't even look under the bed.... This was the least desireable hotel stay during the entire 8 night tour of France. Would've preferred a location in the city.

Stayed overnight on way back from south of france. Had expected it to be better than a motorway hotel. Quite basic. Looks pretty grim from outside. Rooms basic but clean. Feel photos make it look better than it is. Meal at night o.lk and waiter very nice. However, breakfast was inedible. Hideous scrambled egg - tasted like it was made from powdered egg, flabby croissants, scummy water from machine which wasn't boiling made tea horrible. Would not want to stay here again. Just grateful got a good deal on price as would have been miffed if I had paid 140 euros which it definitely doesn't deserve.

The hotel has a location that make it very confortable if you need an hotel to sleep just out of the highway. It is confortable even if you want to visti Aix-en -provence. The ratio qualitiy price is good. The room are clean and new. The breakfast if a good buffet and the room is nice. From outside it does not give a good impression becasue is a modern building quite anonimus. The is a swimminbg pool. At the sme price level you can find a lot less quality in this area.

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.
