This hotel is in a great location, nice neighborhood with everything in close walking distance. You really couldn't ask for a better location. The staff is extremely helpful and very friendly, ready and willing to help with a smile. You will feel very safe and comfortable. The rooms are simple but very clean and ours had lavender hanging in the... More

I needed an affordable room at short notice for a business trip. It had to be within walking distance of the centre of Aix, and this was the only place available via the normal booking sites. The good points: friendly staff, quiet room (if at back), room available in busy period The weak points: shabby ill-smelling room, poor value for... More

Thanks for this comment. On the other side, we think that you are too severe and that's why we don't agree with you. You came to us asking for a room, meanwhile all others hotels were fully booked. We proposed you the very last room we had available, and surely it was not the very best. We specify that it... More

Although the hotel is rated 2-star, it has all amenities I needed for a 4-day business trip, including a 3 min walk to one of the best-kept secret restaurants for true provençal cooking! Service excellent, 24-hr reception, clean and simple fully-equipped room (one drawback - all TV stations only in French).. Next time in Aix - next time in La... More

Excellent 2 star hotel staff.Very friendly, helpful and willing to go an extra mile to serve well. The hotel itself serves a good breakfast all you can eat. If the management can be more attentive to small details such as the quality of the towels and the channel selection at the cable TV. No English or other foreigner language.

Got a twin room with street frontage but bed was too small for me - I am 6 foot and my feet were hanging over the edge - and the room was noisy. Upgraded to a room facing the court yard with a double bed which cost us another 30 euro per night. Breakfast wasn't great and definitely not worth... More

Probably the friendliest staff I experienced at any of the hotels I stayed at in my two weeks in France for December. Very helpful and welcoming and provided information on some places to visit. Hotel is very close to the Cours Mirabeau street (literally a five or so minute walk around the corner). The room was clean and had a... More

A goregous little Hotel with extremely friendly and accommodating staff. Florence and all staff (especially the owners) made me feel very welcome from the moment I checked in. The Hotel is 'just around the corner' from great restaurants, cafes/bars, patisseries, boulangeries, chocolatiers and other fabulous shops. The Hotel is also very close to the city's 2 fine art museums and... More

The hotel is on the edge of the pedestrian area in central Aix, so is well positioned for walking into the centre, with no shortage of restaurants, bars and shops nearby. The 'Parking Carnot' car park under the congress centre is a stone's throw away, and you can pull up in front of the hotel to unload. Our first impression... More

What a great little place! Me and my husband stumbled across this hotel when looking for last minute accommodation in Aix. Firstly, I wouldn't recommend looking for 'last-minute' accommodation in Aix because everywhere was pretty much full, but we were very lucky to find Hotel Caravelle. The hotel is clean and tidy - a little noisy if you have a... More

Great little hotel right on the edge of the old town. Typical older french hotel features... dark stairs, creaky slow elevator, noisy unless you close everything up tight. Room was pretty big. Bed comfortable, shower small but plenty of hot water. Did not need AC but looked as if might not work. Beware hot weather. Staff unfailingly friendly and helpful.... More
