I normally don't give bad reviews but my husband and I are away at the moment and I just asked him which of all the hotels we have stayed in this year was the worst and we both agreed this one. Dead plants, rude staff, double bed against a wall and dubious plumbing and it smelt so bad they had... More

We spent 4 nights here as a result of reading the good tripadvisor reviews (and ignoring one bad one). It is noticeable that a lot of Americans stay here and clearly like the authentic Provencal experience - it is a more authentic experience than staying in a modern hotel such as the one next door which is under the same...

I stayed here one night with my boyfriend and it was a perfect place in Cassis to stay! It was right across the beach with easy access to the hikes for the calanques - couldn't have asked for a better spot!

We loved our stay at Jardin d'Emile! We visited during our honeymoon and this was the perfect location for us to have both an adventurous day in the calanques and a mellow day cruising the town and lounging in the sun. We woke up late for breakfast both days and they were nice enough to serve us breakfast in their... More

We loved Cassis and we loved this hotel. The staff was really friendly and helpful. Room 1 has a great view of the mediterranean! You need not go any further than the restaurant at the hotel. It is wonderful!!!

The best thing about this hotel is its location -- right on the beach, with easy access to the start of the Calanques hikes. About a 5 minute walk away from the quai at the center of town. The hotel itself charming, if nothing to write home about. The rooms are decent -- we had the triple -- clean and... More

This hotel is located right next to the sea with friendly staff at the reception. There are only six rooms. Although the rooms are really tiny they are nicely decorated and you will find a comfortable bed. The staff at the bar/restaurant was really unfriendly and we preferred to have lunch and dinner in town.

Loaded with charm, great location, great value, and service, service, service. We had a great stay the first of Oct. Veronique and Franswa saw to our every need. Food was excellent. Across the street and from our window, the Med. Cassis and the hotel were an unexpected jewels. Go to Cassis and stay at Jardin d' Emile.

Don't believe the photos...this is a ramshackled establishment. The most expensive room is actually the third floor attic, and the host didn't even offer to help with the baggage up 3 curving stairwells. The room was dark and dingey, and the shower is so tiny, one would have to walk in sideways. We booked 5 nights, paid for one and... More

We have mixed feelings about this hotel... It had several very strong points and a few weak points. The location was great - right across from the beach and a short up/downhill walk to the old town and the restaurant/cafe scene. The room itself was huge, comfortable, had a great view, but wasn't very clean and needed some work. Parking... More
