we had booked a couple of nights but the service was extremely poor and we ended up spending only 1 night there and quickly went to the Ibis Hotel, a few 100s meters far, cheaper and actually much better. The hotel is old, everything is old in this hotel. The rooms are a bit gloomy. The TV screen is small.... More

I have been in this hotel for ten days. I'm so impressed with their speedy service, cleanliness , reliable high speed internet, with the big rooms and affordable and reasonable price. The proximity to the mall is a plus. I recommend for visitors to lodge at the arc and you will be happy when they provide you a good breakfast... More

There is nothing special about this place. Everything thing here was outdated and run down. The hotel is located between the freeway and train tracks so throughout the night you can hear honking and hooting. The train passes by very early in the morning around four am and if you are a light sleeper like I am it will wake... More

Stayed here with my student daughter getting her settled in for her language course.Our room was a reasonable size and very clean, bathroom facilities perfectly good, pretty fair internet access [and we could both log in at the same time, which was not the case with another hotel in Aix that I won't name, where I wound up afterwards as...

Handy location, 20 minutes up hill walk into town but buses available. 9 euro breakfast fair value given local prices. Staff always helpful and friendly. Walk away from town and there are a few shops and a path that leads down to a pleasant river walk. Didn't go in the pool but it looked clean and big enough to cool... More

This was a basic hotel, it was clean and tidy but the double room was just sufficient for one person. The bathroom was somewhat cramped but there was a hair dryer which looked like a recent addition. It was a shame that no one bothered to clean the pool as it would have been nice to take a dip as... More

The Arc hotel has not too much to say, a normal basic place to stay which value the average price, a good position if you're moving with a car , an simple and clean room, a gentle clerk at the reception. There's a small swimming-pool that makes this hotel less sad. Not the hotel for an unforgettable honeymoon!!!

This was by far our least favorite stay. A last minute choice, and a walk on. This hotel is utilitarian, I'm not certain why it would qualify as a three star. We saw a pool... The room was small, the bed lumpy. The bathroom sported a deep bathtub with a handheld shower. Hot water .... yes plenty. An elevator, one... More
