What a find Hotel du Forum was all or more than we expected, Staff were fantastic and helpful and even parked our car as we had a large van, they suggested one of the most memorable restaurant No16 just around the corner for dinner. The room was spacious and clean nice bed and bathroom. The Manager (Or Proprietor) even made... More

Spent 3 nights in September. The room was very large, with charming decor, if somewhat basic and functional. The location is smack in the middle of town, by the Van Gogh cafe, and accessible to all the major sites by foot. There are plenty of good dining places literally steps from the hotel lobby. An ample breakfast is served in... More

The hotel is just a short walk from the train station. We were there for one night before we got on our boat tour. Arles is a very easy city to navigate and a car is not needed as most of the roads are very narrow. The hotel is situated on a square in front of the famous yellow café.... More

My wife and I had allotted only one night to spend in Provence during our vacation to France & Italy, but Arles, and the Hotel du Forum, made us wish we had been able to stay a little longer. We wanted to be in the historic heart of Arles, and the Hotel du Forum is right in the middle of... More

My husband and I (in our mid-60's) stayed in this hotel for 6 nights in late September and we loved it. Our room was large and immaculate, we could not hear any other guests (we faced the pool) and our 2 double beds were extremely comfortable (and convenient because I had a bad cold). The owners and staff were very... More

This was the first time I stayed this hotel - in the past I have passed by in front of hotel and thought it was touristy non-character hotel - how wrong I was! When we arrived the receptionist spoke real good English and told us where to eat and avoid - very caring. It was not only her, all the... More

Staff is superb, very helpfull and interested to help guests. Nice breakfast, which you can have next to the swimming pool. Rooms are clean and spacious. I will... More

My wife and I had 5 nights here in September and enjoyed every moment.It's not the hotel's fault but the centre of Arles is difficult to access due to the narrow streets and the electronically controlled bollards which block off some roads. We did have to phone the hotel for assistance and were "talked in" right to the door.Once in... More

Location is great although it is very difficult to drive the car to the hotel. Service is quite good and I made the reservation through email, not agent. Room is nice and it is full of history for the hotel.

Certainly very convenient, within walking distance of everything. Family owned, and everyone was very nice and very helpful. However, the rooms appear to have been last painted many many years ago, and the mattress should have been replaced long ago. On the other hand, the rates were very reasonable, and everything was clean. Outside our window was a beautiful garden.... More
