“Location, service, friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

My wife and I chose this hotel because of the Trip Advisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. I got a a prepaid (8 euro!) parking ticket that was good for 26 hours at my request (the young Florida/French lady at the desk drove with me to the indoor lot, walked back with me, and then marked up a map with both driving and walking directions!), and ground floor room, as requested. The room, bed and air conditioning were fine. The tub/shower was child-sized, and so narrow and slippery as to make holding on to the towel rack mandatory, especially for a 6'2" 230-lb guy like me, but the older woman at the front desk seemed concerned, and was clearly -- and understandably -- not used to getting complaints. I might ask about the bathroom before staying again, but the location and staff are unbeatable. Breakfast coffee and a croissant at an outside table were fine with us, instead of the pricey and ordinary inside buffet, and of the three laptops supposedly available for Internet access, only two could boot up, and we never could get to Google, perhaps because of the slowness of the connection -- but all complaints at this hotel are trivial. Enjoy!

Dear Guests,

To start of, i would like to thank you for taking the time and sharing your imprressions about the hotel after your stay. The team is happy to hear that their service was up to your expectations and that you enjoyed the room on the ground floor as you requested. For your comment about for the tub and shower, it is a standard size in Europe, we are sorry that it might have felt too small for you. On your next visit please let us know that you would like a room with only a shower and you will fell better. Concerning the laptops for internet access we have changed the internet service and now everything works just fine. But thank you for letting us know. We hope to have the chance to see you again on you next trip to the south of France meanwhile please keep posted on our Facebook page.

The staff was very helpful, friendly and the location seemed fine. The Roman arena is right next door and we ate at two restaurants right nearby and another for dinner a short walk away near the main square. The breakfasts were very good. We had a drink one late afternoon in a beautiful garden setting behind the hotel. They are also affiliated with a spa but we kept busy and did not have time to use the spa facilities. The room is small as is the bathroom but it was adequate. I highly recommend this hotel and plan to stay there again when I return, as I enjoyed the Provence are very much.

Dear Guests,

Thank you very much for taking the time and sharing your remarks about the hotel after staying with us. It is a pleasure to read that the helpful staff, the breakfast, the location and the garden pleased you. Some rooms may seem small compared to big double rooms in the USA, but then again you are located in city center in a 17th century building. The Calendal is composed of 4 different buildings, all old and antic which makes the charm of our hotel. We hope to see you soon during your next trip in the south of France. Meanwhile please keep posted on our Facebook page.

Could not hope for a better location in Arles. From our bedroom window we were just meters from the arena. The service excellent. First time ever in France I had the check in staff come with me in the car to show me where to park. All staff pleasant and helpful. They all spoke English if you need it. The room was comfortable and clean. If in Arles again I would definitely stay here.

From the moment we checked in, it was clear to us that the staff of this hotel was exceptional. The husband and wife owners and their team work effectively and cheerfully to provide a most outstanding experience. The facility is older but has many other amenities to make the experience enjoyable. A nice garden area to relax in. A very nice breakfast room with an excellent breakfast. It is the place where we will stay again when we return to Arles and we will for we enjoyed the city very much!

We loved this hotel for several reasons: great location (our room overlooked the Roman Amphitheatre), friendly staff, unique building and the garden courtyard. By looking at the front of the hotel, you would have no idea that there is a lovely garden at the back, and is perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine after a day of touring. It was so peaceful there and our group appreciated having a nice place to meet up to discuss our days adventures. The room was small but decorated beautifully and had lovely windows. Since the hotel is built over 4 buildings, the rooms are all different, not a cookie cutter design. The staff were always friendly and helpful. Highly recommend.

Second time to stay in room 4 at the Hotel Spa Calendal. I love it!!! The room is so pretty and the view from the terrace cannot be beat. The service is wonderful. Everyone is so helpful. Only two suggestions: Carpet on stairs could use an upgrade and breakfast choices could be improved.

This is an old hotell with all its charms. The staf is so very helpfull and pleasant. They helped with our luggage (through the garden and) up some narow stairs to our lovely room. We were breathtaken when we could look out on the remains of the old roman amfitheater. The room itself, space enough and a nice bathroom. The beds were good. Pleasent to sit on the sidewalk with a glas of roze and let the scenery pas by.
The breakfast, not the most pleantiful, but enough, I liked the "cook your own egg" with your sandglas timer so you get it just so long cooked as you want.
The parking is 5 minutes walk away, but since we stil are able to walk nicely, this was no problem at all.

Room Tip: Ask for a rom with a amfitheater view
