“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

The best thing about this hotel is its location -- right on the beach, with easy access to the start of the Calanques hikes. About a 5 minute walk away from the quai at the center of town. The hotel itself charming, if nothing to write home about. The rooms are decent -- we had the triple -- clean and reasonably spacious, with cute décor. The constant pervasive smell of cleaning fluids and sometimes perfume (perhaps to cover up the former) was a little much, but who spends much time in their hotel anyway in a place like Cassis? It's perfectly fine, and a pretty good value, if you want a nice place to stay by the beach.

This hotel is located right next to the sea with friendly staff at the reception. There are only six rooms. Although the rooms are really tiny they are nicely decorated and you will find a comfortable bed. The staff at the bar/restaurant was really unfriendly and we preferred to have lunch and dinner in town.

Loaded with charm, great location, great value, and service, service, service. We had a great stay the first of Oct. Veronique and Franswa saw to our every need. Food was excellent. Across the street and from our window, the Med. Cassis and the hotel were an unexpected jewels. Go to Cassis and stay at Jardin d' Emile.

Room Tip: Rooms with balcony looking out at the Med

Don't believe the photos...this is a ramshackled establishment. The most expensive room is actually the third floor attic, and the host didn't even offer to help with the baggage up 3 curving stairwells. The room was dark and dingey, and the shower is so tiny, one would have to walk in sideways. We booked 5 nights, paid for one and left without unpacking.

We have mixed feelings about this hotel... It had several very strong points and a few weak points. The location was great - right across from the beach and a short up/downhill walk to the old town and the restaurant/cafe scene. The room itself was huge, comfortable, had a great view, but wasn't very clean and needed some work. Parking was in the hotel's own lot, which in a town like Cassis was a real plus. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The only real downside was that the hotel was a bit worse for wear and the room was run-down and not particularly clean. That would be normally be a real negative, but the positives resulted in our overall rating.

Pros: Location, free and secure parking (in a town where it is almost impossible to find a park), nice breakfast served in your room, if you wish. Air conditioning. Clean and quirky. Loved the balcony overlooking the beach. Quiet. And did I say free parking???? Frig in the room. Supply of beach towels. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Cons: We had difficulty paying with our credit card(s) . Only time in 5 weeks that we experienced this problem. Had to drive into town and get cash from an ATM. Glass wall between bed and bath, not a problem for us, but might be for others. Stairs were quite narrow, could be a problem for some.

Charming hotel overlooking Bestau beach. We stayed in room 5 which though small is clean and comfortable with a balcony where you can take breakfast. We found the breakfast large enough to share between 2. Air conditioning was effective. Decor starting to look a bit tired. The staff were excellent. Cassis was very busy so it was useful to have free parking. The hotel location is great for the beach or the walk to the Calanques.

Room Tip: Room 5 has a balcony and glorious sea view
