Traveling by train has been anything but easy or pleasant this week, but the cheerful, helpfull staff at LaCaravelle, soothed some of the stress. The hotel is cheerful with lovely decorator touches in all the public areas. Breakfast was a good value with variety and attentive service. The room was clean and comfortable. I would not stay anywhere else in... More

Great location and quite rooms (at the back) with very friendly staff. Not super flash but it works . I would have rated it v good if they had some were bedding - looking a bit tired and a few marks on the bedcover. But as I said it worked well for us.

What a wonderful hotel that was! I would not choose any place else in Aix. It is charming to the last detail! Apparently the hotel has been recently renovated (or at least, our room was). The reception area could easily be of a 3*. The moment we walked in, it stole our hearts! We had a 2 twins room on... More

We stayed at the hotel for one night only while visiting friends in Aix-en-Provence. Booked this hotel because of the reasonable price and the excellent location, right at the corner of rue de l'italy and 10 minutes away from the train station. Didn't expect much. The staff was very nice and helpful. The room was small but adequate. The lift... More

We arrived at night to this hotel. I have chosen it mostly looking at its location. It's a 10 minutes walk to the station so it was perfect. The staff was friendly and they stored our bags for a day. The room was clean, beds were a bit small so not too comfy to sleep. The bathroom looked like it... More

La Caravelle lies at the border of the old town of Aix-en-Provence. The location is excellent, however reaching the hotel by car may be a bit frustrating, since the circle road around the old town by which you have to approach the hotel is one-way only and you may have to do almost a full circle around the town centre...

We had a great stay at Hotel La Caravelle in Aix. The hotel was simple and quaint, but more than comfortable. The location was great, the staff were helpful and everything was clean. It was great for the price. I would stay there again if looking for a budget-friendly option.

I've just come back from Aix, and wanted to review La Caravelle, as I think it has been unfairly described. My mum and I found the hotel staff to be incredibly friendly and helpful. Our third floor twin room was at the front, and because of the hot weather we kept the balcony doors open, so it was noisy, but... More

Despite the other reviews, I thought I would give it a try. Was only staying in Aix for the night. My room was simple, facing the street. I had a queen sized bed and my own bathroom. Be careful as some rooms have the bathrooms outside of their rooms. I stayed in March, so the weather was cool. I didn't... More

This is located on the edge of the historical town, so everything is walking distance - lovely cafes and book stores, museums, restaurants. Right across are a couple of supermarkets for any supplies, and a laundromat is also not far. The bus station is bit of a walk though. The hotel itself is bit jaded, and tad bit expensive for...
