If your goal is to walk around Arles, then Le Calendal is well-situated. As other reviewers have said, the major Roman ruins are nearby and the weekly markets are held on Blvd des Lices where the parking garage is, so things of interest are close by. I did spend a day walking around Arles, but I also used Arles as a base for exploring Provence by car and this created problems. First of all, be aware that the hotel gives you a ticket for the machine at the parking garage. I assumed that the ticket is fed into the machine on the way out, but actually it must be put in on the way in AND on the way out. (If you simply take the garage ticket on entry, as I did, you can't get back out without paying for parking (again) or contacting a disembodied French voice on an intercom.) A heads up from the hotel about this would have been helpful. Likewise, you should be sure to keep your parking garage ticket with you, not in the car. This is because the garage is locked to pedestrian entry at certain times and you need the ticket to get in. This happened to me on a Sunday around 10 AM and again I had to deal with the disembodied voice. One other point about the parking situation: the Boulevard des Lices is closed most of the day on Saturday for the market and intermittently on other days, eg the Sunday I mentioned above, so one must navigate around it - not always easy because it is a major thoroughfare.
