From time to time you arrive in a hotel and you think: "if only they would buy some fresh paint and hire local painters, it would already make a huge difference."
Those were my first thoughts when entering the car park of the hotel. The outside ofthe hotel, the lobby, the elevators, the rooms, the corridors, the dining rooms ... are all in need of this refreshing refurbishment. No huge constructions needed, just this fresh look...
The hotel has a lot of potential: the pool is nice and spacious, the car park large and secure, situated at "only" 20 mins walking from Arles city center, close to the Camargue.
I particularly liked the friendly and helpful staff at the reception and the breakfast. The free wifi connection is always a plus.. You can have (for free) a safe-box close to the reception area.
Although each evening several buses with tourists arrived, these were nicely hosted in separate dining rooms (also for breakfast) so you never had crowded breakfast rooms. I have seen other situations in far more expensive hotels!
So one advice to the management of the hotel: buy some paint at the local mr. briccolage and give this hotel a spic-and-span look and feel!
