Arles is over 2000 years old. First Celtic, then greek, and claimed for Rome in Julius Cesar's first Gaul campaign. If you like history, you'll like D'Arlatan as it is a rennaissance duke's house built on ruins of medieval houses, built on top of an old Roman area (visible through the floor of the lounge), 100 meters from the old Roman forum and Van Gogh's Café la Nuit.
Hotel d'Arlatan is wonderful if you like history. It is quirky. Each room is different (ours had a remarkable XVII century wooden ceiling) and special and the general decor is fantastic. However, don't expect miracles of modern technology. The TVs, air conditioning (supplemented by old fashioned fans) electricity and telephones, are pre-historic, but that is not why you come here. Have breakfast in the inside court as the Count of D'Arlatan would have done in the 1600s and you'll understand what this place is about.
We stayed here 10 years ago and after all this time, it is just as magical.
