“Great for smokers!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2012

This is a funny quirkys hotel, staff are friendly but speak very little english. rooms are extreemly small but have opening windows and small balcony. smokers may like this but the stale smoke smell is not appreciated by the majority. Breakfast included and I guess reasonably priced for Paris.

This is a great little hotel, centrally located and great value for money. We paid 40 euros a night for a double room, en suite with a balcony. We were able to view the room before we took it and found the owner to be very helpful.
Clean and comfortable and well worth a stay. We had an extra night and dreamt the dreams of artists.
The balcony is one of the best places in Arles to sit with a drink and look at Van Gogh's swirling stars.

After our first terrible with hotel des acacias in Arles where the clerk gave our room away and told us to "get the **** out", we tried to book a room at Hotel Voltaire. The rooms seemed cheap, but when the "reception" clerk came, we asked if she had any photos of the rooms, or if we could see a room. She told us on a rude tone that "there are no photos, at this hotel you pay and stay, if you want photos you can get out and search for another hotel, there are lots of them...". Of course we didn't pay, the reception's hotel was actually the bar of the restaurant, it looked terrible, something more of a hotel where you pay for the hour if you know what I mean. I actually searched for photos of the rooms on the web, but I couldn't find any. So they really don't like photos....

I love this little hotel. Great location. Clean. Comfortable and CHEAP. Excellent view from the balcony. Don't stay here if you are used to luxury but if you just need a clean comfortable place to stay.

The kitchen was almost empty and the owners were crazy and violent. We visited Arles for a day and decided to eat at the restaurant in hotel Voltaire. It was OK until the food started arriving. One of my friends got a brown hard burned old scary omelet that looked like it’s been in the trash for a day. She had to quarrel with the waitress and cook to get a new one. They were so nasty that she started crying and went to sit at a different place across the Voltaire square. The rest of us stayed wandering if we should be joining her as the restaurant crew got even nastier. All of a sudden the cook came out with a new dish and threw it on the table. We explained that our friend has left and put the dish on another table. He took it and threw it again. We paid (for everything including the burned food) and left. When we walked by the restaurant on our way to the car, the cook and waitress run out and chased us shouting that we shouldn´t take pictures. It was the worst experience of our trip to France.
