Last September-October my parents and I took a trip through Provence. Aix was our last stop, and in all the other cities and towns we had wonderful experiences with lodging. My father had booked this hotel behind the rest of the families back based on Fodor's Choice and Trip Advisor reviews. We were staying at the fantastic Chateau de Mazan... More

We enjoyed our two night stay in Aix and Hotel Cardinal. Hotel Cardinal is situated south of Cours Mirabeau in Quartier Mazarin, the quartier is built in the end of 17th and the beginning of 18th century. Try to wander around in the neighbourhood, it is like to hop two centuries back in time. The rooms of the Hotel Cardinal... More

The hotel is charming with a South of France character. The hotel is operated by a nice and friendly staff. The hotel is located opposite of Musée Granet and only a few steps away from the busy city center. Cars can be left in close by parking lots. Our room was clean and on the ground floor, in annex facing... More

The hotel is everything you'd imagine a French hotel to be. It's quaint, charming, cleaned and operated by staff of impeccable manners. The rooms are clean. The hotel is located close to the shopping city center and makes for a easy commute about town. It was a joy to stay here.

We would (and will!) happily return to this charming hotel. A beautifully, and very knowledgeably, furnished 18th century house whose individual rooms are a delight. Our double room was spacious and comfortable, completely silent at night (aaah!!), sunny in the day. Reading some of the other reviews, I do not recognise the hotel at all. It's owner, who works at... More

This hotel offers a perfect location with great facilities. Room 30 was a suite: large bedroom, squeaky clean bathroom and a kitchen dining room. Al rooms had big windows, including the bathroom. The dining room looks over the beautiful square and has lots of morning sunshine. The bedroom looks over a leafy back courtyard which is so peaceful. Staff are... More

thought this one was really nice for a change. We were travelling for a month and this room had some real old turn of the century charm. Service was good and friendly. Located on a very quiet street near the church, yet a two minute walk to the busy restaurant area and easily accessible to strolling the rest of the... More

Spartan hotel well-located in the quartier Mazarin. Our room, on the ground floor in annex facing the street, could have been noisy but wasn't. The bathroom was a strange little cave. The price was moderate--though not really a bargain. Breakfast was unexceptional but cheap.

My wife and I stayed here three nights and were very pleased. We found the staff to be very polite, friendly, and helpful. The room, while somewhat small by our USA standards, was clean and nicely decorated. A real plus was the bathroom, which had modern facilities and was crystal clean.

I booked the Hotel Cardinal for 6 nights based upon Trip Advisor's recommendations and was VERY disappointed. PROS: great location, good price, nicely updated bath room with deep tub! CONS: I felt the staff were not very friendly or welcoming. When I told them my room hadn't been cleaned and wanted to know when I should vacate it so it... More
