Even with GPS we had a really hard time to find this hotel, which is quite a way out of this very lovely city of Aix. Even when we found the building, it was hard to find how to get into the parking area, and the entrance to the hotel, but it was worth the struggle. Great room and bathroom,... More

Neat, clean, newly refurbished, nice hosts, wifi and parking available at no cost. The location is out of town of Aix so you need to go by car (10-15 min drive). On the other hand if you are in Provence and want to drive around, maybe it's convenient because it's next to the motorway. Prices are more convenient than in... More

When we turned up here for the last night of our holiday, our immediate thoughts were to leave and book in elsewhere. Set in the middle of an industrial estate ( deserted on a Saturday ) The outside looked like the sort of 'hotel' that local authorities place homeless families in ! However having passed the swimming pool , empty... More

The hotel rooms are nicely decorated and clean, unfortunately they are badly noise insulated and the motorway is very close. They have a free mini bar in the room and the towels are changed every day. There is nothing to see outside of the hotel, but they do have an expensive restaurant next to the hotel.

My wife and I stayed there for 5 days. In my opinion, the main problems are the distance (it's 10min driving from downtown, so you definitely need a car), the poor breakfast (8 euros for bread, jelly, pain-au-chocolat and coffee, they did not even have milk) and the fact they do not really care about you as a customer. Regarding... More

Travelling on business I found this hotel to be excellent. The rooms were comfortable, modern, very clean and furnished to a good standard. It is not too far from Marseille; only about 20 minutes from the airport (MRS) and 30 minutes from the city centre, mostly by motorway. The restaurant was also good, with a good menu. I found the...

We liked it, it was clean, new and the hotel personel was friendly and welcoming. We were use to have breakfast there every morning and for 12 euros was worth. If I have to point out a defect it would be the missing fruit or yogurt at breakfast and the pillows wich we did not like and the missing wi-fi... More

We booked online through bookings.com but we were not prepared for the location: in an industrial area, with hardly any activities in the area. The proprietor was VERY KIND and helped us negotiate for a transfer that same afternoon, which we appreciated very much! The place was fine, it was just not appropriate for us since we were there for... More
