This is an excellent hotel in the heart of the old town. Great value for money.
Location is fantastic. A walk from all major sites, the hotel is located in Place du Forum, a very beautiful square full of bistrots and people and ambiance. An excellent base to discover the beautiful town of Arles and enjoy the local atmosphere.
We paid Eur 80 for a large double room overlooking a small medieval street. Despite the very central location on the square, we couldn't hear any noise. We had the most comfortable double king size bed ever! Extra pillows and blankets available. Plenty of storage room. Nice antique furniture, but not shabby. Very clean. Free WiFi throughtout the hotel, good speed. New flat screen TV with a good selection of local and international channels.
The hotel has a very nice lobby and a nice bar (snooker and big screen). It also has a great swimming pool (in the inner court yard, hotel guests only) where breakfast is also served (dining room inside as well). The continental breakfast was very good. A choice of cereal, toasts, jam, juice, fresh croissants and coffee. Warm dishes also available. The breakfast is an extra Eur 9 per persson. We thought it was goid value for money given that outside the hotel breakfast costs Eur 7,5 and you get a limited amount of food and drinks.
The staff was super nice, accommodating and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble for them. All staff speak fluent English and other languages as well (Spanish, Italian).
We will deff come and stay there again and highly recommend this hotel!
Room tip: book well in advance (at least a couple of months) in particular if travelling in July and August. The hotel is overbooked during the first week of July due to the international photo festival Les Rencontres d'Arles which opens on 2 July and runs until September.
