“A (VERY SMALL) ROOM WITH A VIEW”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

The location is superb, everything you want to visit is within a few minutes walk. The hotel is quite charming and the staff are friendly and helpful. However my room was very small. Normally I would request a change but as I was not paying such action would have been inappropriate. In fairness everything was provided, the bed was comfortable and a small balcony did offer some relief. Also I was there on business so out in the morning and back at night, merely use the room to sleep.

I passed on the buffet breakfast which I felt was over-priced at c£11 but did dine in the charming restaurant. The food was excellent (Do try the guinea fowl.) and the service very courteous and professional.

If it was not for the room I would certainly rate the hotel "Very Good" and return again making sure I got the accomodation I would normally expect.

Room Tip: When booking make sure they are aware that you know some rooms are very small and are unacceptable t...

Location is perfect, especially if you are on a one day trip. We arrived via the train station and was surprised to be able to walk to the hotel in 5 minutes! It's located right in the town area so we could walk to everything we wanted to see and do.
The rooms are a bit too dark & dimly decorated for my liking, but that's just me. Room is clean and the size is comfortable. The fancy shower jets was a nice luxury. There is some serious construction going on opposite the hotel, but we were out mostly during the day so that's ok. However, at night (till 3am) we could clearly hear the nightlife going on in the lane next to the hotel. So if this kind of issue bothers you, maybe request for a higher floor?

Service was generally good. Front desk lady was friendly but we could tell she is slightly overworked!

I will stay again and would love to try the Brasserie Leopold next time!

I stayed in a small room- 90 euros nightly rate- for one week in early May. The room was very hot and stuffy even though the outside day temperatures were in the low 20s and it was still jacket/sweater weather in the mornings and evenings. At night, the room would reach 24 degrees. After my second, restless sleep, I asked the front desk if someone could come and fix the thermostat since both the fan and/or air conditioning didn't seem to be working. I was told that there was nothing that they could do (no one looked at the thermostat) and to leave the window open- something which was advised against on the security procedures on the back of the door, not to mention the many pigeons landing on the window sill. The hotel advertises air conditioning.
Three weeks before my arrival, I made a dinner reservation. When I arrived in the dining room, there was no reserved table and I was seated in the middle of the dining room at a table for eight. There was a male hotel guest, who was also eating alone, seated at the opposite end of the table. The food was very good- 35 euros with pastis, small bottle of wine, salad and main course. I would describe the service as unfriendly, making me feel uncomfortable and not welcome to be there and eating alone.

** Terrific breakfast service by Elisabeth in the bar and a welcoming check in by a tall, young man with dark hair, Nicholas, I think.
Close to the TGV shuttle bus station, Cours Mirabeau and the Tourist Office.

I frequently need to be in Aix-en-Provence on business and this restaurant has become one of my favorites in the area. The service is efficient and the staff are very friendly and helpful, especially for the area. The menu on the restaurant is traditional French, but the quality is good and the pricing is reasonable. Additionally, if you are visiting Aix as a tourist the hotel is a five minute walk from downtown. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Aix.

Room Tip: Restaurant is a local favorite, reserve in advance to have a table on the patio during the summer...

Stayed here for 3 nights before a River cruise. The ambience is totally charming and the staff, especially Nic at reception, very warm and welcoming. The standard rooms are tiny but adequate. The Bathrooms are excellent -newly renovated. The Brasserie Leopold is a very busy place every day and has excellent food at decent prices. Their house wine, a decent AOC is a mere 3 euros per glass. The tremendous location is a huge plus. The price per night (about 100 euros, booked directly ) was very fair.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back-much quieter, although there can be street noise/local party goers on wee...

This hotel was booked quite last minute, and offered a reasonable rate for it's location. It's decorated in art deco style and quite tasteful. The service was good, and the room we had reserved has spacious with a pretty little terrace (although sadly there was a building work taking place between our room and the pretty rotonde, hindering our view)
We had diner at the brasserie, which was good food and nice buzzy ambiance. It was ideal for our budget and we couldn't have chosen a better location!
