We stayed at this 2 star hotel whilst visiting our daughter. Although it is 2 star rated it was spotlessly clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again. The only negative comment would be that the shower either was scolding or freezing and the Internet connection is poor. Looking forward to visiting again.

We stayed in this hotel for one night. The rooms seem to start all on the second floor (although they call it the first floor) and we did not notice an elevator. The hotel is within walking distance to the old city and the bay (5-10 minutes). The concierge was friendly and helpful. The room was nice and roomy and... More

If you want a fancy terrace with a view of the water and hot and cold running bellboys and chambermaids, this isn't for you. If however, you want an easy central location with an airy, light and scrupulously clean room with a friendly accommodating staff who understand your lousy French and take over with their beautiful English, then this is...

This is a small family hotel in La Ciotat. The room and bathroom were clean and immaculate. It was a long climb from the bottom but we had help with our luggage. The owner stayed up and waited for us since we arrived around 9 pm and thank goodness he was there waiting for us. Our room was overlooking a... More

A small family hotel close to the centre of La Ciotat, very friendly staff, the manager (son?) speaks excellent English and was very helpful. The breakfast was much better than the normal French breakfast. Our room on the top floor had a very fine view of the gardens and beyond.

I’ve been last year (beginning of June 2012) with my family for a week in Provence. We checked in at this hotel. It’s a family hotel as far as it looks. Not far away from the beach. We stayed at the floor (2nd or 3rd), with a view on the main street. My daughter loved the round small window. The... More

However, you may get 2 singles pushed together if you request a double as we did. Bathroom was modernised & there was loads of hot water for baths etc The breakfasts were... More

A very pleasant six night stay, due to the helpful and friendly staff, the wonderfully calm ambience and peace at night, the cleanliness and the view from my window of the gardens. It is also a very good choice for anyone who needs to know about the area, as the manager is very informative and speaks excellent English, (should you... More

The desk clerk was very helpful to get us settled in for the evening. He showed us were to park our motorcycles in the basement of the garage, which was very secure. The beds were comfortable, the shower was hot, and the breakfast was fine. A good deal for the traveler. We came through during low season also, the price... More

We chose this hotel due to the high TripAdvisor rating, but was a little disappointet when we came there. The staff are absolutely kind and helpfull, but the overall impression of the hotel is average. Relatively close to the harbour front and the main streets of the town - 5 minuttes walking. Nice little town with plenty of restaurants.
