My partner and I spent one night in Aix Les Bains, at Hotel L'Iroko. It was a great find!
The room is large and perfectly adequate. It's mid-range - not luxury, but clean and comfortable. And inexpensive.
The best things about the hotel are the view - our room looked out onto the Lake, which was delightful (especially being from London). It was such a huge pleasure to look outside and see the water and the mountains. And one of the two balconies of the room faced the Lake as well, though we didn't really have a chance to sit out on the balcony for long. The other great thing is the location. It's right by the water, and the board walk, with many lovely terrace restaurants right outside (we had a delicious dinner at a restaurant just metres from the hotel). From your room, you can just head out for a lovely walk along the board walk, taking in the lake, the mountains, the boats, and the sunshine. We walked to the centre Nautique in about 40 minutes - the only sandy beach in the area - where we sunbathed and had a refreshing swim in the Lake (for 5.40 euros per person, which includes access to the beach, pool (indoor and outdoor) and changing area).
The staff at the hotel is friendly. There was ample parking in the hotel's lot, and the breakfast (11 Euros per person) was plentiful and tasty (the usual breakfast buffet including fresh miniature French pastries).
Aix Les Bains itself is a lovely gem of a town, and a well-kept secret. It was busy when we were there, but far quieter than any other resort-type towns I've been to.
We loved our stay there (both the town and the hotel), and felt incredibly relaxed, during our short 24 hour stay. We wished we'd been able to stay on for a few more days....
I'm giving it a 4 rather than a 5 simply because the hotel is simple rather than luxurious, but it served it's purpose wonderfully, and we had no complaints about it whatsoever.
