The hotel is in the middle of the Cours Mirabelle, the prime street in Aix. Parking essential by pre booking but be warned it is located in a VERY narrow side street full of people! Hotel was tired but retained a degree of Gallic charm.

When we arrived the room we had booked several months prior had been given to another guests. We were given a room for 2 persons when we were three. Their excuse was that they thought we were only 2 people so I showed them an email where THEY acknowledged in that email our statement that we would be coming with... More

Cons- Disco music played til 2am & kept us awake. I understand that noise & location come hand in hand however this was intolerable & we feel we should have been warned. We organised for clothes to be washed but they came back dirty. The lift didn't seem to work. Common areas were disgustingly dirty. Renovations seemed to be taking... More

This a quaint, old hotel. The rooms really need to be updated. They are very bare boned. A wardrobe, small, wooden desk and 2 small bedside tables. But, there was also a frig. The room was clean, which was nice. The best thing going for the hotel, besides the charm, are the wonderful staff. They were very friendly and helpful.... More

Great location and large and bright room. That's all. Poorly decorated with ornaments (carpets, curtains) outdated and are there to collect dust. Reform was on the top floor. It has potential but the overall condition of the hotel did not please us.

The Grand Hotel Negre Coste is located on the main thoroughfare at Aix. It is a wonderful location. The hotel is old and needs a 'touch of paint' here and there and the lift is an experience on its own. However we loved the character and charm of the whole building. The staircase is quite grand and I could imagine... More

We recently stayed at hotel intending to stay 4 nights but ended up staying 9. We found the location fantastic, right in the centre Cours Mirabeau and all the action- restaurants, markets and shops. Easy access to transport and the Tourist Information Centre which enabled us to make Aix our base for exploring the region. The hotel is old and... More

As others state, location is what saves this hotel. It's right in the middle of the historic Mirabeau strip. Beyond that, it's tough to find a lot of good things to say. Very old building with the typical high ceilings. Rooms are very tired. The mattress nearly crippled me. Shower did have good water pressure and plenty of hot water... More

This hotel is in a great location, but needs a needs a cash injection, the hotel was very tired although the room was fine and the bathroom wasclean with a good shower. The best things about this hotel was the location, the secure parking, although a bit tight, and the staff, who were very friendly and helpful.

Good location but very shabby and don't waste your money on the 'better' rooms if you stay there. Just a scruffy and worn out as the cheaper. Towels seem to be made out of corrugated paper, no bathrooms no frills.
