“Good price, good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

Overall: Good location, good price.

When we stayed: 4 Nights in July 2012
Who we are: Husband & Wife - American

Sleep Quality: Decent. Conjoined twin beds, average comfort. Moderate sized room. Did not hear neighbors and window blocked street noise well. Stayed on 3rd (top) floor. A/C worked well and quickly. Room was clean though somewhat dated. Lights in hallway/stairwell did not work.

Location: Good location - average safety - 10min walk from downtown Arles. Groups of unemployed men sitting outside hotel every evening - not at a restaurant - just sitting there.

Staff: Pleasant, but spoke very, very little English.

Bathroom: Split bathroom - toilet in one room, shower/bath/sink in another. Those rooms are joined by a pony wall so noise/air passes. Good water pressure.

Parking: Cramped but could park 6 (by blocking-in 3). Had to leave my keys at the desk one night because they might have to move my car.

Very friendly staff, excellent English, helped us carry luggage from car to room. Private parking garage, though it is hard to get into; we found free parking on the side street.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2009

I stayed at le Cheval Blanc for a week and had no major problems with the hotel. The room I had (for one person) was small, but this is France, and there was actually plenty of floor space. Most importantly in Arles in July, it had in-room air conditioning! Multi-lingual cable TV subscription, mostly well-translated signs in both French and English, and lots of non-French guests staying there. I was warmly received, and everyone working there couldn't do enough for me. The rooms are nicely sound-insulated. My only real dislike was that it was a 5- or 10-minute walk from the center of activities, but that's all I really had to complain about!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2008

We stayed in Arles as part of a month long bike trip round Europe. The Cheval Blanc was chosen as we couldn't get into the other hotels we'd shortlisted within our price range. I still think it was slightly expensive, but did a great job for us.

It's well located on a main road just next to the old town - despite that, we had no noise and slept well. It's very easy and quick to walk to the old town - not a problem at all. We were welcomed by a really lovely lady who made us incredibly welcome, and, in the morning, as we loaded the bikes, made us feel like brave, hardy Tour de France riders, which was appreciated.

Our room was a good size with a decent bathroom. It was simple but clean and we had no complaints at all.

We didn't have breakfast at the hotel so can't comment on that.

I think that if we go to Arles again, we'd try and stay somewhere a bit nicer, the Calendal looked wonderful, but we were perfectly happy with our stay at the Cheval Blanc and have no qualms about recommending it as a simple, straightforward hotel.
