“Odd little place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Not bad value for money, though there is no possibility of secure parking. The patron (manager/owner?) seems to have been taking lessons from the Basil Fawlty School of Charm; he's very brusque and at breakfast seemed very worried about putting out too many slices of cheese or ham, too much bread or juice - and once it was out he went around the tables trying to persuade guests to take more, presumably in case it was wasted.

The hotel is very reminiscent of the sort of place that 30 years ago was everywhere in France - odd design elements (our washing basin was in a niche hacked out of the wall) and dark corridors. The bed was comfy and the room a decent size, though not enhanced by the dark grey net awning over the bed. At least the day of the 20W light bulb is gone now, and there was WiFi of a sort. It was clean enough, but the absence of a shower curtain over the bath meant the floor in there was inevitably flooded.

It is very central indeed, in a narrow street which opens onto the area in front of the Roman Theatre, and there is an excellent restaurant across the alleyway. Orange on a summer evening is a pleasant place to stroll, and we enjoyed our evening, but the only car park is five minute's walk away, which is not good for anyone who worries about security.

Room Tip: No suggestion of choice - you get what you are given!

We arrived at the afternoon, and an angry man came dragging out from behind some curtains. He was probably angry for being bothered. When it turned out we din´t speak french, we was really, really annoyed.
He called his wife, yelled at her in the phone, and gave it to us to speak to her.
Something wrong had happened to our booking so we had to book again, over the counter. He yelled at his wife again and we got a room. It was so ugly and dark that we wanted to get out in the street right away. I heard the man talking about us to another guy downstairs.
We decided to make the best out of our holidays and booked anther hotel.
L´herbier just around the corner was cheaper, soooooo much more nice. I know we payed for 2 rooms this night, but Herbier was worth it!

Do not stay here. It is a waste of your money, time, and energy. Life´s too short.

This is a small hotel which is very central and despite being a little grubby its value for money. I paid £105 for three rooms and had no problem with the stay.People will complain about this hotel but its not expensive so if you want luxury then its not for you but if you want something thats value and well located its fine.

Be careful where you park in the town as there are regular market days and you could find your car towed in the middle of the night. Check with the hotel but if you don't speak french it might be difficult. The owner is very helpful and friendly and the rooms all have murals in them I think painted by a relative of his.

Under new management since November 2012, the owner has started upgrading some of the features of this hotel (eg new carpet). It is superbly located, in a quiet street close to the Theatre and its museum and opposite a great restaurant (The Forum).

We were given a "winter special" of 70 euros for a night for two - an ensuite room with breakfast included. The building is extremely old and the rooms are quaint, with lovely old furniture. Bathrooms are adequate and there are plenty of wonderful thick towels provided.

Great value for money.

i was welcomed very warmly and courteous at the st florent.
the bed and shower all had fresh linen and towels, but the floor, walls ect were just very muggy, looked dirty. the toilet on the hall was not very welcoming, with damp carpet on the floor that came off at the edges.
i recomend this hotel because of its great location and good service and price, but its only for sleeping in the room. they should really take out the carpet and put in a floor thats higenic.

This family owned hotel is four floors. Lobby and breakfast room on ground level and three floors above that with guest rooms. No elevator. The hotel has paintings by the owners family throughout the building including in each guest room, some of the paintings are wonderful. The rooms were clean and large enough though the issue with our room was that the bathroom walls did not reach to the ceiling so there was not audio privacy from the bathroom. The shower was very slow to drain which limited the shower time or the water would overflow the shower stall. The floors were not level nor were the walls, this is an OLD building. Bed was reasonably comfortable. Breakfast was fine for 6 Euros, no meat but cheese, yogurt, cereal and breads. Host family was wonderful and the location is great next to the Roman theater. We did not have any noise issues but there was almost no one else in the hotel with us. Price was right at 50 Euros. Internet kept going in and out in our room but in the lobby the signal was very strong. Orange was a great city to visit.

This is a quaint little hotel operated by the family. Myriam checked us in and looked after all our needs. Her English was perfect. Listen to her recommendations for food, she will not steer you wrong. The rooms were clean and tidy. Everything you would expect while you are travelling through France at a reasonable price. The hotel location is within 120 meters of one of the best preserved Roman theatres!
