“JL'Hostalet - just wonderful”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

L’Hostalet at Argeles su Mer might be one of the best managed little hotels we have seen. Maybe the best “period”. Without a doubt L’Hostalet would be the cleanest and most spotless hotel we have visited. Not a mark on a wall anywhere and not a speck of dust to be found, just immaculate. The owner/manager just happened to be the “perfect host”. He was always handy and helpful when needed and was perfectly unobtrusive to our stay. The owner describes his hotel as austerity chic, which describes the place perfectly. No electronica and superficial distracting gadgetry, LHostalet is certainly not a 5 star property, but that is not what the owner brings to the place. The individual rooms are perfect, refurbished “just so” with authentic décor and superbly comfortable beds, linen and pillows. Bathrooms are lean and efficient. The hotel is located in a busy part of town but the double glazing puts a complete end to exogenous noise. More money is to be spent over the winter to quell any other ambient noise. A perfect place for a perfect sleep.

Room Tip: All rooms are good!

I agree with all the other positive reviews. Mathieu & Jonathan made our stay extra special, going out of their way to help us plan days out & make the most of our location. L'hostalet was very clean & the central location was an ideal base to explore this region. Also our room was very quiet even though we had the market set up just outside twice a week. I would definitely recommend L'hostalet to others.

This is exactly why we use Tripadvisor! Having read all of the reviews, we booked two nights at L'Hostalet and everything that has been said before is true. Lovely, comfortable room overlooking the square, simply and tastefully presented and spotlessly clean. Location right in the middle of Argeles village is excellent with easy free parking close by. Matteo was kind, helpful, friendly and eager to please - we followed his restaurant recommendations and had great meals for reasonable cost both nights. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Just returned from an excellent 5 night stay at the home of Matthew &Jonathan. Before booking I read comments on trip advisor. Very impressed with what I read, & they were all true. Our room was tastefully decorated, fabulous breakfasts & our hosts could not have been any more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble, (especially trying to find a dentist for me. Thank you so much Matthew for trying so hard).
I would (& have done already) recommend L,Hostalet to anyone. Staying in the village, for us, was far better than staying in the very busy beach area, much quieter & much less commercialised. It was a cycle ride away from the beach.
Thank you again Matthew & Jonathan for giving us such a warm welcome. The rest of our tour of the Pyrenees was fabulous.

Room Tip: Overlooking the village square, so that you can watch French life. Due to excellent double glazing...

Just returned from a holiday in Argeles with my young daughter. Excellent guesthouse. We had a room overlooking the pretty square. A good bed, and bathroom. Room really lovely, very comfortable and very clean. The proprietors were terrific. Couldn't do enough for us. They gave us a parasol for the beach and I travel adaptor as I had forgotten to pack my own. They recommended a restaurant nearby, which had a children's menus. Breakfast was delicious breads, cakes, fruit, home-made jams. We flew to Carcasonne and took the train to the town, didn't hire a car, which wasn't a problem, as transport to the beach. The hotel is great for couples or families. Highly recommend!!!!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking square have picture-postcard view.

This was an excellent find, we just stayed in Argeles sur Mer for the one evening and couldn't have wished for a more pleasant or central spot....breakfast was superb served in the square behind the hotel and had a true authentic feel.....our hosts obviously have worked to make the hotel both chique and welcoming......

Room Tip: Very central within the town.....parking approx 200-300 metres.

We originally planned to stay in Collioure, but reading the reviews of L’Hostalet on Trip Advisor, changed our plans and spent two nights here. It is a very nice small hotel, with only 6 rooms, all recently renovated - ours had an excellent new bathroom and good bed. Our only gripe with the room was that it wasn’t very well lit. The free wifi worked well.

The hotel is run by a charming host, Mathieu who was very helpful and serves a great breakfast in the square behind the hotel (if the weather is fine). The hotel is right in the centre of town, and our GPS had a bit of a problem with the one way streets, but once we found the hotel, Mathieu pointed us in the direction of free parking and advised us how to get in and out of the town.

Argeles itself doesn’t have much of interest to tourists, other than the beaches in summer. It has some good restaurants, but you need to check closing days and make advance reservations for the good ones - Bartavelle and Le Cayrou - unfortunately we missed out on eating at both of these places due to bad timing. We ate at La Gamate and The Flowers both of which were pretty good, but nothing spectacular. Next time we’d probably stay in Collioure which is a more charming town, with more choice of restaurants. But if we had to stay in Argeles, we’d definitely stay here again.
