Hotel du Globe is a good basic hotel in a great location. Clean, bright room. Front desk very helpful. We had wine that we wanted chilled to enjoy on the rooftop terrace, so they chilled it for us in the breakfast area. We had the petite breakfast which was perfectly adequate and well priced. Only complaint would be the tiny... More

I stayed here as part of a wedding party and it was the perfect base for our boozy weekend! Very close to all the bars and sights of Aix. The hotel sorted out everything we needed to get to the wedding venue and the airport and were so helpful in every aspect. I had a single room which still had... More

the only reason this is not a 5 is the bathroom. Our room was large (for France), very quiet when we shut the windows, and once we put a cup over the shower drain the smelly plumbing scent quit permiating the room. However, the shower had less than 18" between the handle & the door - everytime you turn around... More

Hotel du Globe is walking distance from the old town in Aix and all the wonderfull markets. The room was clean and welcoming with view on courtyard. Good value for money breakfast. We were told that the Hotel was near the station but in the end we had to walk a good 1.5-2 km's with all our luggage.

Like most European hotels...........this 2-star rated hotel had teeny-tiny rooms, so it's hard to move around the room with your luggage because there is NO WHERE TO STORE it once you unpack a few things. We stayed 3 nights here before jetting off to Provence proper and then Nice and the Med. It's an okay hotel. Nothing special other than... More

Great location, within easy walking distance of everything you want in the old town of Aix, the Du Globe was everything we wanted for our stay. Our twin room (No. 23) and bathroom were spotlessly clean. Crisp white linens, cool, quiet air conditioning and no outside noise made the room easy to relax in. The roof terrace was a welcome...

Right in the heart of Aix, and walking distance to all center-city sites, this budget hotel was a welcome surprise. The staff was outstanding -- very welcoming and helpful. Not only did the manager direct us to their lovely rooftop terrace, she offered to cool or keep any purchases, advised us on sights and repeatedly asked how we were doing.... More

From the outside and seeing the two star sign, my first thoughts were not very good, but this changed as soon as entered the hotel Firstly a charming and very pretty hostess welcomed us, with a 'bienvenue à notre hotel' she then explained about breakfast times, and other local details, especially about their 4th floor terrasse which to be honest...

We had just stayed at Hotel du Globe 2 days ago for 1 night only. The location is superb being near to everything. We got a room on 2 floor facing the back side. This works fine for us since we had just finished our long journey from Asia to Aix-en-Provence. We really need a good night sleep for the... More

Stayed for two nights in May 2014. Some rooms larger than others (could tell by emergency exit floor plan), ours was definitely one of the smaller ones, saved from claustrophobia by our terrace which helped make the room feel a bit more airy. Staff was very nice and helpful, breakfast was average (not as many choices as other places I've... More
