I don't know where the 195 people that voted this place number one are accustomed to staying, but I am guessing Motel 6 or perhaps a hostel. Picture your grandmother's house with the same bed you slept on as a kid - before they had real cushions and they just used a box spring with a quilt. The bathroom is... More

Charming hotel in the central square of Arles, a perfect base for exploring the city. Easy to reach from the train station (a 10 minute walk through the city), great breakfasts, provençal décor in rooms which are spotlessly clean and a lovely little pool to laze away the hours by. However the real gem of Hotel du Forum are the... More

We had a wonderful experience at this hotel. It is in a perfect location. We could walk anywhere we wanted and the restaurants were close by. We loved being right on the square so we could have cafe or a drink. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The only draw back is if you coming by car it is... More

Lovely hotel right in the centre of Arles old town. Perfect location. Such a charming 'old school' place - if you like plastic, chrome, and high tech hotels this is not the place for you! Having said that the wifi connection is good, there is a delightful small pool at the back of the hotel where you can have breakfast,... More

The hotel is not for the faint hearted if trying to access by car. Roads are very narrow and full of people wandering around. Having said that the hotel is ideally located for access to the old town. The service is excellent and a swimming pool available in middle of complex as well. Breakfast is simple and buffet style and... More

I really enjoyed the Hotel du Forum, albeit its really horrible decoration and lack of a good WiFi connection and electrical plugs in the rooms. I stayed in three categories of rooms but they really don't get acceptable until you hit the 120€ range. That said, the 60€ and 80€ category were acceptable, and you get what you pay for,... More

This is a charming, family owned French hotel. Believe all the reviews about perfect location, awesome customer service, lovely pool, large size rooms and modern bathrooms. Believe it is a great value for the price. A perfect French touch - a trio of beautiful painted ceramic sinks in the toilet area on the first floor. If you have a larger... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon. We had a wonderful room and the hotel has a nice swimming pool. The staff were very friendly and were able to get us a reservation at an excellent restaurant when we were told it was already full. Highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Arles!

Perfect location on the central square, surrounded by cafes, restaaurants and shops. Hotel personnel friendly and helpful. Pool is attractive and refreshing, a bit larger than I had anticipated, which was a pleasant surprise. Breakfast by the pool would have been nice if we had made it down earlier - tables go quickly in this coveted spot! Nice, tasty buffet... More

Great hotel with swimming pool in the very heard of the center of Arles. Very french and runned by the owner family with heard & professional service. Our room was very large, breakfast buffet great. Perfect relation of price and quality. We are coming back.
