I stayed here for several nights. My room was fine - but had virtually no view from the window and was quite cramped The rooms are clearly very variable - as friends I was staying with had balconies etc. The hotel rooms also lack adequate storage place for clothes, plugs (I had to unplug the light to use my computer) and a fridge would have been good given the heat.

On the plus side - the location is fantastic, the brasserie is very good (although service was painfully slow) and the reception staff are friendly.

Room Tip: I suggest you ask to see the room - they're vary enormously in terms of size and quality.

We spent a week in Aix with my wife and stayed in this hotel for the whole week. Location is great, staff was always friendly and the hotel bar and restaurant are a nice bonus. Recommended for anyone visiting Aix.

Especially worth mentning is the soundproofing of rooms, no irritating noises from hallway. Also airconditioning was very good, cooled the room in minutes.

Location wise this was perfect, all in the aix city is within walking distance. And if you come with car - they also have own garage - which i liked alot. Don't have to worry that some idiot trashes my car in public parking.

Restaurant was good, not mind blowing experience, but well worth the money.

The hotel is very new, clean and in an excellent position but they charge too much for everything (12,5 € to park your car in a very tight garage, 12,5 € for an average breakfast) and the features are not completely adequate to the fares. The Wi-Fi was very weak in our room and I had to go back to the reception to have the codes, the room itself was way too small (we couldn't even fully open the window because it reached to the bed) and way too "stylish" for me if the word stylish means "having the bathroom's wall completely built of semi-transparent glass so everybody in the room can see you while you pee".

We enjoyed our one week stay here. Arriving late in the evening, we decided to dine in at the hotel resto, called Brasserie Leopold. Our waitresses' personality was as sunny as Provence itself and was a lovely introduction. We had two meals at the Leopold and thought they were both excellent. Some of the general hotel staff were warm, conversational and very helpful, usually those who came from Provence. Others were a bit aloof and we wondered if they came from the capital.

This hotel is so well located. it's only steps away from the famous Rotonde, Cours Mirabeau, the Cezanne cinema complex and the Tourist Office. There's a weekly market on Cours Mirabeau. At the Rotonde, there is a taxi rank, a little tourist train with a commentated tour, as well as the depot for Les Diablines, which are tiny, sweet six seater public transport vans which, for 50 euro cents, will take you on one of three routes in the inner city. It's a fun way to cruise through tiny narrow streets, which, as a tourist, you might miss. It's also a good way to meet some locals, especially senior citizens, many of whom were great fun. Just beyond the Rotonde, but less than 5 minutes from the hotel, there are a few streets crammed with restos, bars and takeaway joints. Ten minutes away, the Gare Routiere is a bus station, from which you can take a 6 euro trip to Marseille, or many other destinations. Not much further, is the railway station. The post office and shopping are just around the corner.

Our room was bright, airy and comfortable, decorated with prints by Cezanne and Matisse. It took a couple of days to work out the airconditioning. The decor was very contemporary. There was a stylish looking frosted glass partition between the room and the bathroom. It wasn't soundproof and certainly not for the shy or prudish, but we got used to the idea. The shower was very space age, wirh shower jets shooting out from the wall, plus an overhead and a hand held shower. Housekeeping was excellent. One day, there was a nasty, fishy smell in the room. We mentioned it to the front desk on going out for the day. On our return, they said that they had investigated thoroughly, even looking under the bed, but couldn't find any cause. However, if we were unhappy, they would give us a new room. On returning to the room, the smell was gone, but it was comforting to know that they wouldn't have argued on a room change. The superior room which we had, offers a bit more comfort and space, but it still wasn't huge. Bedding was hard, but comfortable and we slept well. Asking for a quiet room, we were given a bright, cheery room at the back. Of course, we had to sacrifice a view, but the better sleep was worth it. The blockout curtains were so efficient, that one morning, we woke at 10am, thinking it was still dark outside. The hotel offers free wifi, which is a real bonus.

We would happily stay here again.

We would be delighted to stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a superior room.

We were assigned this hotel by husband's work place. 7- 10 couples or individuals stayed in this very traditional Provencal hotel. Some rooms were small, however. In the process of refurbishment, some smaller rooms have fantastic showers, with 3 directional wands. Our room was a larger one, with the old tub and hand held shower, no curtain. We did have a wonderful terrace [3rd floor] where some of us took our picnic lunches. The staff was very pleasant, helpful, accommodating encouraging. They supported my attempts at French.
The hotel is just at the Rotonde, between Ave de Belges and Cours Mirabeau. The Tourist Information is nearby. We decided to do the Cezanne walk. There are medallions in the street to guide you. One of the sites was our hotel, the St. Christophe. At one point, this building was the Art Society where Cezanne exhibited many paintings. The hotel doesn't exploit this aspect, but, it could.
The breakfast buffet seemed expensive, until you factor in the Starbucks cost of 2-3 lattes or cappuccino's. You can spend less. But, don't miss the dinner at the hotel's restaurant, Brasserie Leopold. Probably overlooked by tourists, but seems to be well known by the Aixois. English menus available. There is a special room in the area by the entrance to the garage for ironing.
We look forward to returning to the Hotel St. Christophe next April

Loved the location of this hotel- bordering the tourist information centre, the historic town and the main boulevard.

Check in was quick and efficient and the guest liaison was pleasant, provided a map and information about the area.

The hotel is three star and the amenities, look and feel matched accordingly.

Rooms are on the small side with not much room to maneuver and bathroom could be likened to a cupboard. However, location made up for all of it and as all I wanted was a clean room which was conveniently located I am pleased I stayed here.

Bonus is the fast free Internet!
