Stayed here based on a NYT review. Hotel changed management a week before my arrival- It was HORRIBLE! The electricity repeatedly went out, staff was rude and unhelpful in every way and additionally the staff gave incorrect information about the area. Charged 10 euros for a coffee that I did not even know I was being charged for- and in fact breakfast was only 7 euros, yet my coffee cost 10! This was by far the worst hotel I ever stayed in. Only positive I can this hotel is to say that the location was excellent. EVERY other thing was awful.

Room Tip: No doubt about it - stay anywhere else!

I stayed at this hotel for two nights and I liked it very much.

The location absolutely could NOT be any more convenient. It is right in the centre of things. Restaurants and bars abound, and within walking distance to all points of interest in the old town.

The decor inside the building is really pretty, too, and exudes typical French charm. The room was absolutely fine. Old-fashioned? Yes. Shabby? No. One must remember that they are staying in a historic building; modernizing it extensively would only serve to take away part of its appeal. The important thing is that it was clean, safe and comfortable. My window overlooked onto the courtyard...and I even had the same dove visit me regularly each morning :)

The people at the front desk were also very nice. If I remember correctly, I believe they were of Portuguese descent. They always had a friendly smile and welcome for me while I went back and forth.

Nice little hotel...I recommend it for a couple of nights in Aix!

We stayed at the Hotel de France for a mix of business and a weekend away. The location is great for shopping, bars and restaurants - just 100 meters from the Cours Mirabeau and Rotonde. The reception looks quite modern and the room we had was quite large, overlooking the square below. Here was one problem, too noisy to sleep with windows open and too hot to sleep with them closed. The hotel has air conditioning but had not switched it on despite 30C temperatures for several days. The bathroom must have been installed 40+ years ago and was both in bad repair and dirty. The bed linen was also unpleasant. Best avoided!

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back or make sure the air conditioning is switched on.

Can't beat the location in the centre of Aix but the rooms are shabby. Good parking within 300m in a huge underground carpark - price about 9 euros/24 hours
