“Central location on a small plaza.”
Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

The hotel location is good. We had a room with a view overlooking a small plaza. Unfortunately there is a pub below the room and 3 or 4 restaurants in the plaza, all open until late in the evening. Ear plugs are a must since the noise went on till after 2:00 AM (no sound proofing).

The room was very spacious and clean. The common areas, elevator are a bit run down. Breakfast looked unappealing so we went out to one of the nearby cafes.

Stayed June 2013, traveled as a couple

After having stayed here in January we were looking forward to a return visit in May. Our room this time (207) was a disappointment after having stayed in 401 on our earlier visit. The floor in 207 had a decided list towards the door and the view of the neighbouring wall was a let down- room 401 looked onto the square outside the front of the hotel and was far more interesting.

The staff are friendly and most helpful. Remember if you need a hair dryer to ask for it at the desk before you shampoo!!

The breakfast room is a feast for the eyes, decorated as it would have been when the building was new. We found the breakfast itself a little less satisfying than our earlier visit - less variety and the bread was a little stale.

On the whole, next time in Aix we will likely book here again with a request for a room at the front.

Room Tip: Book a room at the front!!!

This wonderfully located hotel with clean spacious pleasant rooms and fairly priced lost our "recommend this hotel" because of the following: No cups in the room. No kleenex in the room. Breakfast uninspired and when we went in at 10 AM every table was covered with dirty dishes so we went outside elsewhere. There is no computer available.

Room Tip: view of the street is fun! Noisy, but makes you feel like you are part of the party.

We stayed at Hotel de France in January and enjoyed it so much we returned in February. We stayed three nights each time and had two different rooms and each was very charming. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are furnished with large towels and bathrobes as in a luxury hotel. We must mention the friendliness of the staff as everyone was exceptionally helpful. The breakfast served in a charming dining room was more than sufficient and very tasty. The hotel has one of the best locations in town. We will return here again.

Room Tip: All the rooms are unique and the hotel is being totally renovated.

Bedroom and bathroom very comfortable, spacious and fantastic view as well (room 400).
Really appreciated the location/ sleep quality/ fresh breakfast.
We stayed here for 2 nights, AC was a bit noisy but someone repaired it the following day.
I will come back again.
