My husband and I have just spent 7 nights at the hotel and enjoyed it very much. Our upstairs room was a good size with an extremely comfortable and large double bed. It had very efficient (and welcome) air conditioning and a fridge. All the upstairs rooms have a small balcony (with a table and chairs) and overlook the pool. The pool area is very attractive and there were never more than 6 people sitting around at any one time. The hotel is very clean and the staff very friendly - even when I made a silly fuss about the bill when we were checking out - which was completely my fault because I'd misheard what was said (the bill was correct and was very reasonable). As others have mentioned, the hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the old centre of Arles. The hotel is situated in a quiet residential street so if you go into the centre on foot you need to turn a couple of corners and then most of this walk is along a main road (and that is a bit run down in parts). However, there is lots of passing traffic and we certainly didn't feel threatened or concerned at all when we walked back at night. The gates to the hotel are shut at around 9 pm (guests have the security code) and parking within the hotel grounds is secure. Our room had an efficient plug in device to repel any passing mosquito but anybody sitting outside or walking in Provence as dusk falls needs to slap on some insect repellant. We sat outside at a restaurant in Arles on our first evening and my husband was badly bitten.
We would certainly stay at this hotel again - preferably in the late spring or early summer when the sun isn't so fierce and when (we were told) the countryside is at its best.
