I found this hotel courtesy of Trip Advisor. It was everything that previous reviewers had said: delightful, charming, lovely atmosphere, brilliantly located in terms of walking to the major Roman and museum/gallery sites) and less than 30 meters from the promenade along the Rhone. The staff were accommodating, cheerful and helpful - and the price very reasonable. Breakfast was simple... More

This spot is a little tricky to find on the windy streets of Arles but it is well worth the effort. Very well run - the rooms are unique and clean. There are so many interesting nooks in the hotel of art and architecture that you may not want to leave! Be sure to visit the turtles in the courtyard.... More

Although it is well hidden near the river walls, Hotel du Musée is well worth finding. It's situated in a beautiful ancient building in the heart of Arles, and is only a short walk from all the best things to see, places to visit, restaurants etc. The family who own it, and their staff, are all very friendly, and make...

Although difficult to find, Du Musse was well worth the effort. It's a charming place as long as you're not looking for a typical American hotel. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. Problem -- The shower got water all over the floor. The location in Arles is near the Rhone River. Great views from the seawall. Walking to... More

The staff was lovely and the location excellent. Lots of parking near to the hotel which was free on the Friday we visited as it was a holiday. The room was very basic and the bathroom tiny but adequate. Decor was charming in the hotel.

We checked out of the hotel on Oct. 7, 2013. Our room was very spacious with a window overlooking a courtyard. The bathroom was renovated and spacious with a good sized tub/shower. The breakfast was tasty and filling. The owner spoke good English.

The Hotel du Musee is well located within easy walking distance to Arles Roman era sites, some fine dining and for leisurely walks along the bank of the Rhone River. After reading other TripAdvisor reviews, we selected a room sized for three. Space was adequate, but the en-suite bathroom was small and shelf space very limited. This is a two... More

This small hotel is spread over two or three small buildings which give it very special charm and the opportunity of having two pleasant courtyards. Service was attentive. Breakfast was a treat and offered a great choice of fresh croissants and danishes, along with anything else we may have wanted... Close to several good restaurants, and if you are lucky... More

Positives: price, breakfast (lots of choices and hot, fresh food too), location, own bathroom Negatives: tough to always find staff when you need them, some staff very limited English (French was not my foreign language in school so it was a little tough to pick up), odd moldy/fishy smell throughout the 2nd floor, noisy (very little buffering, we knew when...

This is a delightful place to stay for ambiance, location, and friendly reception. Thought the building is three hundred years old, the facilities are perfectly fine. The courtyards (plural!) are charming. The proprietors/managers are terrific. For a reasonably priced home base in this part of Provence, Musee is hard to beat.
