“Motel style hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

As others have said, 15 minute walk from Arles centre. We had a garden room with a terrace directly on to the garden and swimming pool. Pool kept at a lovely 30 degrees, very clean and garden well maintained. Hotel is in motel style with door to outside (felt very secure) and you can park opposite. We didn't have breakfast as we thought it expensive so walked ( or drove to city walls, lots of free parking) and then had breakfast inside the walls, lots of choice. Easy access to main roads. We ate out in Arles ( no restaurant in hotel) every evening and walked back, no problems but would not like to do it alone as it is through a very quiet residential area. Very friendly, helpful staff. Make sure your mosquito machine in the room has liquid in it - we got badly bitten when ours ran out!. Arles is on the edge of the Camargue, lots of mosquitos.

Room Tip: Garden rooms have direct access to the pool and large terrace area.

Two nights we have been in arles in the hotel le rodin. We travelled by train and came by foot, 15 minutes to go, not really in the city center but this was no problem.We were in great silent neighborhood with a really beautiful pool. The hotel is old style but every detail is perfect, it is a family driven hotel. We asked for a lot of favours and the staff were positive to every demand. It was realy relax and perfect for the climate of arles.

First of all, if you are looking for super-friendly staff, calm, and a great pool, this hotel could well be for you.

However, as a lot of other reviewers have also said, it is quite a walk from the centre of town (and not through the nicest of areas) and the décor of the place is both old and pretty ugly.

We also found the free wi-fi to be really patchy, which was extremely frustrating. The manager put this down to "the sizes of the tubes" when too many people are using it at the same time. He found the joke a lot more amusing than I did.

Some other member of our party were also very uninspired by the breakfast selection, which is fairly large, but with distinctly average-quality products.

With just a little investment, this place could be really lovely - it really needs to décor to be updated asao! For the moment, it seems to be coasting on the attraction of its (genuinely pleasant) pool and extremely nice staff.

Hotel Le Rodin was the 3rd hotel of our 2012 Tandem tour of Provence. We stayed for two nights to enjoy the pool and explore Arles. The hotel is about a 15 to 20 minute walk into the centre of town. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room on the second floor was very good and clean having a balcony, air conditioning. mini bar, TV and safe.
The pool was large in a great setting.

We (my mother, wife and myself) stayed at Le Rodin for 4 nights.
It was in a quiet residential neighborhood north of the old town.

My mother's room was on the ground floor and was large with a large bathroom.
Our room was on the top floor of the back section.
The staff were great in accomodating us as I did not want to stay on the ground floor.
They moved us, on our request, to the top floor in the back and it was perfect, quiet and secluded. A lot of this probably was due to being the only people in that section as it was off season and the hotel not full. Our mom only mentioned noise once when some rude guests were
Our room was large and comfortable with plenty of space to put our stuff.
The bathroom was large and also had plenty of space for movement and stuff.
The toilet was tiny and a tight squeeze.
There's a small entry way which provides another level of seclusion from the other guests.

The staff were very helpful, exceeding our expectations in making our stay the best it could be.

We did not try the breakfast but went to the nearby bakery, Fromenterie, at the corner of Rue Valentine Jaume and Avenue de Stalingard. South from hotel to the 1st stop sign and right to Stalengrad. We ate there for about a third of the price and most importantly it was delicious.
It's also a good place to get a sandwhich for later in the day.

Room Tip: Top floor back

We are in off season and the hotel is nearly vacant, like most. Rooms are typical but very clean and the staff has been friendly. Breakfast is above average and the coffee is good. After walking through city center I wouldn't recommend staying there if you have a car. This hotel has been very nice and if you're not afraid of a 1km walk, you can walk to city center. I would stay again.
