We stayed in this hotel during the first week in July 2013. This hotel is located 5 minutes (ok, maybe 10 minutes in heavy traffic) from Aix-en-Provance downtown. I choose this hotel based on the TA reviews and on its website, specifically because it looked very french. It didn't disappoint, quite the contrary, it was much better than I expected. I am giving a 5 stars not because this is 5 star hotel, but because it has exceeded my expectations on what it intends to be and on value. The place is beautiful, quiet and has a chateau feeling to it. When we arrived, the room was ready and we were greeted immediately. The check in was fast and eficient. The room was large on European standards and it had a lovely balcony (the room is a little bit dated, or antique, you decide, I didn´t mind because the bed was so comfy). The bathrooms are remodeled and great (but no showers, only a hand shower - I was happy to take baths). I was also very pleased with the hairdryer quality, it actually worked very well (which is rare even in high end hotels). At first I was concerned that our room looked over the restaurant patio because of the noise, but it didn't bother us at all. In fact, it was so quiet we slept in every morning.
Breakfast was 19 euros but it was very nice, with fresh eggs, pasties, fruits, not a huge breakfast but plenty and with great quality. I recommend the breakfast, specially with nice weather, once you can enjoy the patio.
I thought this hotel location was the perfect base to explore Provence, we drove to Avignon, Cassis and Valensole and the roads were great and everything was around 1 hour away. Aix has a very lively night life with tons of restaurants and we had plenty of choices. This hotel was great specially if you have a car because it is a little far from downtown. In the last note, they didn't charge for parking, which is rare (take Negresco for example in Nice, we had to pay 30 euros per day).
Great experience overall, would definitely stay here again.
