Aix is kinda a pain to get to from the train station, but I suppose it is my own fault for not realizing that before hand. We finally got to the hotel, and were greeted with lovely service and.... an elevator! Yay!
Our room was "renovated" which still meant that it had a pretty stained carpet, but besides that was OK. It had a full bathroom, which is really great and rare in France when you are on a budget. There is a lot of street noise, but we kept our window open. We could've used the AC, but I guess preffered fresh air and noise over fake cold.
We didn't have the breakfast, but there is a cute little place RIGHT NEXT DOOR that has a cheap formule and outside tables. The hotel is definately located very close to the Cours Mirabeau and other shopping and the myriad of Italian influenced restaurants studding the old village.
Did I mention there was an elevator?

We've booked this hotel with 65 Euro/nite.
This hotel claim itself to be 3 star but we think it's only worth 2 star at most.
Most rooms in the same floor are equipped with air-cond but not the one we've stayed. We went to ask the staff & they gave us a small fan. All the light bulbs were blown & it takes a while for them to fix it. The hotel staffs are not friendly. We gave them 100 Euro notes & they said they've no enough change & ask us to change it at the bakery shop or elsewhere.
The map shown on the hotel website are not real! It's very very far way from the center bus-station !
We'll definitely not going back to here & don't recommend anyone to this hotel.
Aix-en-provence has nothing much to do & see.
Avignon is better.

Aix en Provence is a lovely, upscale city in the heart of Provence. For a budget minded traveler in this region, Hotel La Caravelle is a perfectly acceptable option. Our daughter was attending school here for the semester and we were within walking distance of her host's house and the school. The hotel is basic, but there are some very nice features. The hotel is in a convenient and safe location (my husband and I walked to and from the shuttle stop near the train station), has very pleasant and helpful desk staff who recommended restaurants and even gave us free parking for a few days in the public garage across the street, and even though we were on the 4th floor and there is a small elevator, we took the pleasant easily climbed stairs all of the time. Our room had a balcony with shutters and doors which completely shut out noise and light at night from the outdoors. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was modern and quite spacious with room for storage under the sink. The room itself was very basic: hair dryer available at front desk, no clock, rather dim lighting, faded drab furnishings (yard sale appearance) though there was some hint of that Provencal color, and no comfortable seating. For us, it was fine, but for someone looking for more luxury it wouldn't work.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in Sept 06. We paid the premium for a "renovated" room but were disappointed to find it had really worn carpet (stained and starting to come up) and a bathtub that had been pretty shoddily repaired. The view was nice, but there's a lot of hallway and neighbor noise too. Places in Aix are expensive (not sure why; the city's really not that remarkable), but for 70-something Euros we expected more from our stay here. On the positive side, the front desk staff are very friendly and helpful, and the location is good -- easy to walk to Cours Mirabeau and lots of the main places.

We got a non-renovated room and it was old but clean. For 47 euros, we didn't expect much. The staff was very friendly and service was excellent! We didn't get the breakfast either because there's a bakery around the corner that serves the same stuff for cheaper. Plus, everything is within walking distance and on rue d'italie, you can find a bakery or patisserie if you keep on walking.
