“Great hotel in the middle of a charming town”
Reviewed 7 October 2012

What a great find! We had a wonderful experience at this hotel--from beginning to end.
We discovered this hotel searching for an affordable hotel in Provence with good reviews and booked a triple room on a discount site. Only a few days later, I received a personal email from the owner, thanking us for our reservation and giving us detailed driving instructions to the hotel and a map of the town of Salon. The email also explained parking options. I was deeply impressed, this had not happened to me previously. The driving directions really helped out when we tried to find the place. Salon has some confusing little streets, but if you keep heading downtown, towards the astronomic clock, you can't miss the hotel. If you arrive by car, you can park in a special spot right behind the hotel that is cordoned off by a metal chain while you unload your luggage. The owners came out and helped us with our luggage.
Clearly, the hotel is not new, but nicely renovated. There is no lift, but there is air conditioning which we really appreciated in mid July. The bathrooms look newly furnished, everything was very clean. We rented a suite with two bedrooms which was roomy (especially for France.) The windows were surprisingly soundproof. We didn't hear much noise from the street, or the ice cream cafe across from our room.
The owners were so helpful and friendly. They recommended a restaurant in town which was truly excellent. They live in the hotel and speak both French and English. For a small fee, guests are able to reserve a parking spot in a locked parking garage, a very short walk away. I would recommend this, the parking garage felt so safe and in this way, your car is not subject to being blocked in on market days.
We really enjoyed the town of Salon, it felt much more authentic and less overrun with tourists than Arles or Avignon. At night, the town with its lit up fountains and astronomic clock was so beautiful. Within a block of the hotel, we found a great restaurant, delicious bakery and outstanding ice cream parlor with live entertainment. What more can you ask for? It's located close to major highways and it was easy to reach Arles, Avignon, the Camarque and the Luberon from here.

We spend two nights at this place and we loved it: the location is center-town so it's easy to walk around to visit. Charming room, a little bit small but with high ceiling and all you need. Good bed, fan and a big window. We were in a room on the second floor and the view was on the center of this little town. Would go again. Great owner, friendly and available.

We stayed at the hotel for five days in July 2012. We found it a perfect location and Eva and Claude went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Our room was very nice, clean and comfortable! The location was perfect, right on the town square and central to everything we wanted to do. We would recommend this hotel hands down! Thanks Eva and Claude for a great stay. Colin & Lois H. Vancouver, Canada.

We stayed at this hotel as I was in the area on business. I really enjoyed the central location of the hotel and thought the personal touch of the hotel management was great, we will be back for sure!

My family of four stayed for 2 nights. Excellent location in the heart of town. Very friendly and efficient owners - able to answer any queries. Our family room was large and clean. The carpark was a couple of blocks away but the owner provided a very good map and even emailed to us the night before! No lift but we knew this in advance. Excellent value for money. Would stay here again.

This is an excellent hotel. I moved there for three nights after staying a week in DuMidi, which is also a good hotel but not quite as nice. Grand Hotel de la Poste has apparently been owned by the current owners/managers for a couple of years now, and has received a very nice makeover. I think all the bathrooms were renovated. They used bold colors, and the many windows add lots of light to make this a cheerful place. The staff are gracious and friendly. The location is right on the prime square in Salon. The 5 minute walk to the parking garage didn't bother me. My wife and I both loved it. Great value. Make your reservations ahead or they may be booked.
