We stayed for two nights in March 2012 in "Belvedere" - which as the name suggests is a good room for views over the rooftops of Arles. It had windows on all sides, which might make it a bit hot in summer, but it seemed to have an air-conditioning unit. The room was decorated simply but well and it felt very clean. The room is accessed by its own staircase up from the second floor, finishing with a wooden spiral staircase (so not a room to choose if you don't like steps). The bathroom is on a mezzanine level under the bedroom. It was very quiet (the street outside was also quiet).
The hotel is well located for the main sights in Arles (including the Amphitheatre from which it takes its name). It was also easy to get to from the motorway. Negotiatiing the narrow streets round the hotel was a bit tricky and the hotel does not have any parking. We left the car briefly outside to unload and then parked in the local multistorey carpark, 5 minutes walk away. The hotel has a special daily rate there. We had problems with the card the hotel gave us for this and the staff refunded the extra we had paid without us asking.
I expect that some of the rooms on lower floors may be a bit dark and not have much of a view as the buildings are all close together. We didn't use the common areas, but there appeared to be computers and free wifi access.
This is not a luxury hotel, but we found it clean, comfortable, well-priced and the staff were helpful. We would recommend it.
