3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Members of our group were accused of leaving dog feces, wrapped in tissue, behind the curtains. Let me say, none of us, in any of our three rooms, had a dog. Our group members were horrified to say the least. They then mentioned that the room did not look like it had been vacuumed upon our arrival (at midnight). The... More

The location of the hotel is excellent (ten minutes walking from the train station), in the centar of the old city. I choose the hotel by recommendatons from Trip advisor. But I was disappointed. I stayed in a single room with privat bath but not inside the room. I know that fact when I booked, but I didn't know that... More

I hate to give a bad or even an average review, but I wasn't impressed with this hotel. The location is perfect, the price is right, but I felt that the place was frayed around the edges. The coverlet was stained, and the bathroom seemed not quite spotless. But, if you're going for location, I suppose it's acceptable.

Hard to rate this Hotel when it is only classed as two star yet when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised. The room was tastefully decorated and the bed comfortable.There was no shower curtain and you had to hold the showers head while washing yourself and the bathroom as well. At least the hotel had a lift and was in... More

We hadn't expected anything quite as perfect as this as the base for our 2 week stay in Aix. We opted for an annex suite to allow for occasional self-catering. This turned out to be a great idea as we looked forward to returning to this haven of quietness and cool when the midday heat reached 30 plus degrees in... More

The beautiful, very French decor was enhanced by original paintings in Cezanne style by the 92 year old owner. Service was friendly and our room was beautiful. Some street noise may be the price to pay for the central location close to everything you want to do in this gorgeous town.

Had a room on second floor of the annex overlooking the quiet square across from the church of the knights of Malta and the granet museum. High-ceiling and decorated with excellent early 20th century furniture. Very spacious and comfortable. Bathroom adequate with large shower. Clean. Did not have breakfast. Internet free but kept having to log in. Annex seemed circa... More

Very classy hotel, just down the street from the museum and a few blocks from major shopping street and restaurants. Moderately priced and a 15 minute walk to the airport bus stop. I'd stay there again in a minute.

The reviews are accurate for the most part. We spent three weeks in France and Italy and booked everything based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. Everything met our expectations and we would stay at all of the hotels again on any future trip. Our budget allowed for mostly 3 star accommodations and although this is rated 2 stars, it... More

We spent 4 nights and loved this place. Nicely decorated rooms in an excellent location, close the bus station and all the action. Little gem of a hotel....do not be put off by the 2 star rating. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
