This simple hotel does exactly what it should. It has small, simple rooms in the middle of the city. The rooms are quiet, cool (thank goodness for air-con that works well, quietly) and efficient. Everything works. The staff are friendly and the breakfast is tasty. Great value for money too!

Great design-very Japanese in the use of a small space. Affordable and not far from the centre. The staircase is quite narrow though. Receptionist was helpful. Clean, quiet and good value. Aix en Provence was a last minute plan and we don't regret it all all. A wonderful surprise.

We stayed in their apartment, quite spacious. A king bed and a twin in one big room, a small but adequate bathroom, and a small barely equipped kitchen. Location was good, could walk anywhere in town and could park the car nearby. Price was right. Problems: kitchen plates/cups were put away DIRTY, just obviously uncleaned (the rest of the apt...

I'm aware that Aix en provence is quite an expensive City to stay in, as I've visited before, but I still wasn't massively impressed with Hotel des Arts for value or reliability, however one thing it does have going for it is that it's location is quite close to the centre ville. pokey little cupboard room (double room) staff were...

Heading for a trip down the Canal Du Midi after Spain and Morocco, and stopping at small towns along the way. The front door looks like a prison entrance, but the room was redone and quite good. Another clerk who couldn't get the internet to work for quite a while. My advice is to just skip Aix and go to... More

• Location is good if you have a car. We were able to get street parking (requires meter payment from 8:00 a.m.-noon and 2:00-7:00 p.m.) close to the hotel. • It's close to the center of things but if you don't like to walk, choose someplace else, though you'll likely pay a good bit more. • If you are claustrophobic or have vertigo,...

When I was here I was on a solo, two week backpacking trip through France last summer, so keep that in mind. Other than when I was here, I was in traditional hostels. I booked this as my "break" from shared rooms and no AC. Honestly, I don't understand all the complaints on here. Since it was inexpensive, I didn't... More

I don't understand all these bad comments. The hotel is very good situated (you are in 5 minutes at La Rotonde) It was clean and sweet. The rooms are small, but the price is really good so i think you really get what you pay for :) The people were friendly and the TV and the conditioning was good. Thank... More

Situated a short walk from Cours Mirabeau, it was conveniently located with friendly staff that encourage you to reach into that little French person inside you. Room and bathroom were tiny, rooms were accessible only by tall staircase. Comfortable regardless with aircon/heating unit. Had a tv in the room. We didn't enquire about Internet, so not entirely sure if wireless... More

The wall is not so noise-insolated so you ear everything, the room is small and the wall is dirty. They are some beast in the bathroom, in the ground and in the shower, and mould too, we prefer don´t wash us… Furthermore, there is no real door to the bathroom... Finally, in the reception, during the night, they let the... More
