“Second visit-fair price and good location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

We liked it enough to stay here a second time and would repeat. Again: central location, nice, good staff, room average European size, no food in room(keeps pests out), and many locals know of the place. www.hotel-provencal.com

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

This hotel is centrally located and right between Frejus and Saint Raphael so its a short walk to a beach in either city. There is a little local italian restaurant across the street (not the big one called Rome on the corner) that is delicious and has an incredibly friendly staff.

The hotel staff does not speak very good English but is helpful and nice. Our room had automatic blinds over the window doors leading to the balcony so in the morning no sunlight can come into the room. During the night it is a bit loud because you can hear the activities in the street, but it is not too bothersome. There is air conditioning in the room and the maid keeps the room/towels/sheets very clean.

Breakfast is around 7 Euros a person so I opted to find my own places to eat which worked out nicely.

Room Tip: I slept in room 9 which was very spacious for a European hotel!

The hotel is very nice and clean, and on a good location, just about 50 meters from the promenade and 300 meters from the train station. It is a good value for money.

This hotel is up to standard for a two star establishment.

One is welcomed and given helpful local information. The room are as described by other reviewers. What is worthy of mention is the breakfast. The breakfast room is really modern and comfortable. The croissants and breads are of the finest quality as are the cereals, jams and fruits.

I dined at La Cave, 200 meters away, on he advice of he hotel staff. It was a very nice restaurant.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling on a restricted budget. What is evident is that the owner and staff make a concerted effort to ensure that their guests are comfortable and happy.

We have stayed in this hotel many times and it never lets us down! The rooms are spotless and have air con / hair dryer etc. If you are staying in St Raphael and want somewhere convenient to the beach and restaurants then this is the spot. By far the best value for money in the area. The staff are so nice and very helpful. I can't wait to go back!

The central location is nice and the staff is good. Rooms are standard european size for the price. No food allowed in the rooms; good to keep the bugs out. This hotel is a hidden gem. The area locals know about it though. www.hotel-provencal.com

Room Tip: Book early. www.hotel-provencal.com

I have stayed here many times and it's very hard to beat for price and location. All th rooms are very clean and have good air con. The hotel is right in the middle of the town, very close to the beach and only a 10 minutes walk from the station. The staff are fantastic and very helpful. This is St Raphael's best kept secret so make the most of it!
