I confess I was slightly apprehensive because of few negative reviews this hotel has got. Well, in my experience the criticism is not deserved. Room and bathroom were spotless, personnel was friendly and attentive to customer's needs. Yes, it does not have an elevator but it says so clearly in description. And it's in an old building but if you... More

This was really worth 7/10 rather than 6/10 but I didn't feel I could go as far as 8. Several issues - firstly I couldn't get any response at all out of the hotel when trying to book - in the end I used booking.com which I hate doing, as I like to check out a few things directly with... More

We stayed at double bedroom is aixen province we were really surprised by the charming room with big bathtubs and separate shower. The parking valet service was good. Staff was very helpful despite most say about the French can be quite snobbish. These guys were very nice. The area had good restaurants but avoid Sundays and Mondays as most good... More

Comfortable, excellent service (including valet parking) and restaurant, in a beautiful location. The rooms are comfortable and well decorated, and those on the Cours Mirabeau are not noisy at all. The restaurant has a good choice on the menu.

Very well located, charming room, with friendly staff. Just drive up to the front door and they will garage the car for you. No lift, but back court adds to the charm. Large room with classic furniture and bathtube. Nice surprise for a short stay at lovely Aix en Provence.

Bastide du Cours is in a fantastic location. We couldn’t have asked for better. The restaurant food is really great – just as we had expected from the research we did before our trip. However, there were a few things that should be noted for future travellers! Our disabled suite (Fleur et Papillion) was huge – a vast lounge with... More

Right in the center of town but still not too noisy, an old building which was renovated, a luxury room with a huge bath tub, sauna and other perks, and when compared to hotels near-by offers the best value for the money. Also great restaurant open also to the main boulevard.

Hotel is in a fantastic location -right on the Cours Mirabeau. Not great if you want to drop your car and luggage though - especially if it's a market day. We found it easier to park in a building and lug our bags to the hotel. The room was lovely - classic decorative room with large bath and terrace. But... More

We chose the most expensive room type given it was a 3 star hotel and we weren't disappointed. We often stay in cheap rooms in expensive hotels and vice versa. As others have said the hotel is located on the main street (Cours Mirabeau) and backs onto the old town. The front is a restaurant / cafe which you walk... More

Bastide du Cours is really a restaurant with some rooms to let. Its location on Cours Mirabeau is very convenient and central, but that's it. Our room was on the 4th floor and the hotel does not have an elevator. This is a challenge if you have luggage (or even if you don't). The managers were always very busy with... More
