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.

We stayed at the Cardinal twice. It is old and charming. I'm sure they renovated at least once since 1992 (last visit) but the renovation was mostly in the bathrooms, I think, which no longer seem like dank dark caves with a bidet for a tub. Yes, it is a bit worn around the edges, but that adds to the... More

Sorry to say so but I really don't see what all the other good reviews are all about. We had the room in the back which was really old, spongy, and had a terrible smell. On top it was very noisy. Best is the location close to the old city center. But there are other places as well. The breakfast... More

A huge room with separate bathroom and kitchen /dinning, it felt like we were living here rather than staying for just one night. A good central location but recommend you walk to the hotel as city is in a maze of little streets, many with local vehicle access only.

Upon arriving there, we had to wait for about 15 minutes as there was no receptionist present. This was rather irritating. Once done, we were given our room, which was clean and spacious. Bathroom was spacious too, but would have been ideal if included a shower rather than a bath. Rooms were quiet. Breakfast was abundant and good. The location... More

We returned to The Cardinale for this trip to Aix and we were not disappointed in the service by the staff or the breakfasts served in the morning. Our room was quiet, but a little worn around the edges. This was not a problem for us as we enjoy the older, less update facilities. The location of this hotel is... More

The location was convenient to wherever we needed to go and the room was comfortable and charming. Room was not ready immediately, but they made it up quickly. Breakfast not included, but otherwise great value and a nice place to stay.
