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

The Hotel du Forum is in a great location in a wonderful town. Finding it after dark when in-town entertainment had roads closed was a fun adventure; but once we were there, it was a delight. The staff was especially friendly and helpful, and the location was perfect for exploring and dining. If we return to Arles, we will stay... More

We selected Arles, France as the destination for our 5-day trip to Provence this summer. Trip Advisor suggested the "Hotel du Forum" for a hotel. We are so glad they did! It is located right in the "Place du Forum" where there are charming cafes, historic sites, artisan shops, patisserie and grocery stores within close walking distance. We felt like... More

Our third visit during the last 15 yrs, and still a charming and authentic place. You walk away with a big smile on your face. Best location in Arles at the Forum square. Great little pool area. Would definitely stay there again if we visit this area again.

We stayed at this hotel as part of a tour. Everything was excellent! The owners were so helpful, they even went back to their own home, to get a luggage scale for us to borrow. They were so nice! The breakfasts were very good and the rooms were large and charming! We would definitely stay there again.
