“Wonderful and Charming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Stayed just one night in Arles and were promptly (and I mean PROMPTLY) attend to by the owner and his daughter. Immediately, they offered to park our rental for only 10 Euros--sold! You'll know what I mean once you get there! The hotel is filled with warm memories, and wonderful views from their rooms. My only regret is we could not stay longer. Thanks for a memorable and wonderful stay. Loved it!

PS: As an added bonus, a few days later we viewed the Van Gogh collection at the D'Orsay in Paris. We were pleased to see how many different paintings from his stay in Arles--cool!

Room Tip: Pay for parking!!

What can I say? On my 2 week trip round Northern Spain & Southern France this had to be the most delightful hotel. For only 85 euro it had the best location, best service and the pretty girls on the desk with their big smiles and perfect English couldn't do enough for you. I didn't have the brekky and the pool was still being readied for the season but I loved it.

Hotel du Forum is an excellent choice for touring Arles. It is located in the historical center. The staff were outstanding. They were always eager to help. The hotel is well maintained and the breakfast at 10 Euros was reasonable for the quality and variety of the food choices.

My wife and I were in Arles on a tour. We stayed for 5 nights in hotel du forum. It could not have been better. The owners went out of their way to help us whenever we asked. The room was great. Breakfast had real croissants and eggs. Would come back here on my own.

The hotel is well-positioned, in the main Forum square, behind the town hall. The streets surrounding it are very tight so they don't really publicise the fact that they provide garage space at 10 Euros per night. This price beats the local multi-storey car park on the main road by the office de la tourism's which is 12 Euros overnight. (No entry after 20:00) The staff at the hotel are all exceptionally helpful, speak English, provide tips on what to do, where to go etc, and the rooms are traditional, stylish and even the grand staircase railings are polished each day !

What a find Hotel du Forum was all or more than we expected, Staff were fantastic and helpful and even parked our car as we had a large van, they suggested one of the most memorable restaurant No16 just around the corner for dinner. The room was spacious and clean nice bed and bathroom. The Manager (Or Proprietor) even made a great omelette for our breakfast.
I would suggest this Hotel to anyone travelling through Arles.

Room Tip: We had No 51 which was at the back quiet and sun in the morning.

Spent 3 nights in September. The room was very large, with charming decor, if somewhat basic and functional. The location is smack in the middle of town, by the Van Gogh cafe, and accessible to all the major sites by foot. There are plenty of good dining places literally steps from the hotel lobby. An ample breakfast is served in the morning. A small garage is available and they will park the car for you.

The best part of this hotel though, is the staff. The 2 young ladies in reception, Florence and Lilla, were friendly, professional and resourceful. Nothing was too difficult and they provided wonderful information.

Highly recommended.
