“Neighbour to Antiquity”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

My wife and I spent a thoroughly enjoyable three nights at this great 3 star hotel, perfectly located in the centre of Arles, just meters away from the 2000 year old Roman Amphitheatre and across from the Antique Theatre. Not luxuriously outfitted, but super-comfortable And spotlessly clean, this hotel, owned by Cecile and her husband boasts wonderfully attentive and helpful staff. A small negative is the very small, wall- mounted TV, the large, attractive spa is a great feature, super wi-fi connection. We highly recommend this hotel. Bargain price if booked on the internet and prepaid.


Peter and Gaye, Victoria, BC., Canada

Room Tip: Room 16 was an excellent choice

What this hotel has going for it is the helpfulness of the staff, the 24/7 food service with good coffee, the spa and its location. The garden is also quite nice and our room had a large balcony which is hard to find. Just realize there is nothing fancy about this hotel. I would say physically it is probably on the lower end of the 3 star hotels I have stayed in. I was not impressed by the breakfast as there were no hot options, even for an extra fee, aside from a boiled egg. I also note that the carpets were not that clean. I had to pick up some coins I dropped and noticed that there were many white hairs on the carpet. I found the same in my friends's room. Perhaps the carpet color (blue) just shows this but it was disconcerting and I was happy we were not staying too long. The rooms were otherwise clean but this was a big deal to me.

Dear Customer,

We thank you very much for taking the time to share this detailed feed-back in regards of your last stay with us in January.
Apologies for the obvious inconveniences caused by some problems you encountered while staying with us. For the buffet breakfast, we do are best to try and please all the customers as for the price and the choice of food.
For the carpet in your room, we’ve had a meeting with the cleaning ladies and have shown them your comment. They will now pay much more attention when vacuuming the rooms and the cleaning check of the rooms will be looked after much more closely.
Thank you again for the courtesy of your time. We all look forward to welcoming you again.

Arles is a charming, down-to-earth town, and the Hotel Le Calendal is located in the perfect spot. It has the feel of a small, friendly French hotel in the middle of an ancient Roman town. My daughter and I had a lovely, typically Provencal, room with a balcony overlooking the arena, which is literally right next door. The staff is extremely helpful with directions, recommendations, and - most importantly - car parking. Breakfasts are excellent, and and delicious pastries and sandwiches can be purchased for day trips to the nearby Camargue. Wonderful restaurants are located within easy walking distance, as are the easels indicating locations Van Gogh immortalized in his paintings. This is the perfect place to spend a few days exploring the beauty and history of Provence.

Room Tip: We loved our room with a small balcony facing the Roman Arena.

Dear Guests,

First of all I would like to thank you so much for taking the time and sharing your comments on Trip Advisor. Delighted that you enjoyed your room overlooking the arena. The hotel is located in the Old part of the city centre of Arles in the middle of the Arena and the Antic Theater.
Parking can be tricky in the City that is why a member of the front desk goes with you to the municipal parking lot that can be pre - reserved at 8 euros per 24 hours.
Happy to read that all our services pleased you. The bar is open 24h/7 for customers of the hotel if ever you wish to drink or to eat…
Thank you for sharing your comments and looking forward to seeing you soon in Arles meanwhile please become fan of our facebook page.

My husband and I spent Christmas Eve and Christmas at the cozy Le Calendal. Excellent location for day trips to other spots. Fabulous buffet breakfast, warm and friendly staff, and a comfortable room created a magical vacation. I think Santa's elves vacation in Arles, enjoying chocolate, scenery, and conversation at this lovely hotel.

Room Tip: Our room on the second floor was blissfully quiet. We did not utilize the spa but plan to do so when...

A very nice hotel, kind and helpful staff. Nice and clean rooms. And the best thing about it is the location and the view form some rooms (ask for it!). It's right between the roman amphitheater and the theater.
The spa is nice but small so it can be crowded and therefore not so relaxing.
Free wifi everywhere.
We'll recommend it!

We spent three days in Camargue. Le Calendal was a "buen retito" we knew it has been a while. So it hasn't been a surprise to find the same charming accueil, the warm rooms in a perfect provencale style, and a new spa, very cosy.
It is a place to stay. Romantic, with the real france charme without any overstructure.
It was a pleasure to have our breakfast near the internal garden, to come in the night and find the little fire welcoming us in the little hall/bar.
It is absolutely a place to visit once in the year, to relax and enjoy life

Le Calendal is charming, perfectly located, the rooms are attractive, the staff very helpful and well-informed. We loved our stay here. We arrived by car, dropped the bags and were then accompanied by a staff member to the parking garage and walked back with her. Our room had 2 bedrooms, a very nice bath, and a terrace. The staff went out of its way when we left a stuffed animal behind. They contacted us and saw that we got it later in Paris. Hooray and thank you.

Room Tip: Ours was the first on the left at the top of the first flight of stairs.

Dear Guest,

We truly enjoyed welcoming you to the Hotel SPA Le Calendal and it was a real pleasure to read your wonderful comment on Trip Advisor!

What a pleasure to know that you have loved your stay with us. A member of the staff always goes with our guests to the parking lot to show them the way (from 8 to 8pm). It is quite tricky in the small streets of the old city.

Glad that the monkey made it all the way to you !!!

We hope to see you soon on your next trip to Arles !!!
