Avoid this hotel at All costs. The lady at the reception is probably the rudest person I have meet in 2 months of traveling, and did her best to not offer us any help at all about various questions that was asked about ceret. Another point is the fact the the hotel entrance is looked 24/7 and you have to press the buzzer to get inside. Rooms are ok, small and no air con.

I stayed at this hotel for 7 nights and found all the staff to be very helpful and efficient. The room was pleasant, good value at the price. I would definitely visit this hotel again. It is in a wonderful location in the heart of Ceret. Since the room was not air conditioned I would have liked a fan.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front are the most interesting

We spent one night here on our way back to Barcelona (last week in August 2011). We hadn’t booked and drove into Ceret simply because it didn’t look too big a town on the map. Turned out to be a delightful short stay. We had a triple room – S8 - which opened up to a lovely view of the Arcades. Staff friendly, professional, hotel very good value. Free wifi which sometimes worked in the room but good connection in lobby. Free carparking a within easy walking distance. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Triple room facing the Arcades definately worth the small extra cost

Les Arcades is about as central as you get in Ceret and has really helpful people on the desk. It's not the world's most luxurious or best-appointed hotel. But in terms of value it rates very highly. Our room was quiet, comfortable and clean. The breakfast was basic French but none the worse for that. There is a lift (tiny). The little parking garage below the hotel is useful and not too expensive. Ceret is a town that takes art seriously and the owner of the Arcades does too - the walls are covered with a nicely quirky collection of posters, prints and photographs (look out for the photos of Dali in the lobby). We stayed here on a Friday - so that we could stock up on food at the fabulous street market right outside the hotel before driving off to our gite for a week. On the advice of the hotel we had dinner at La Fontaine, a few steps away in the Place Neuf Jets (I think that's the name), and I'd recomend this too. I wish there were more places like Les Arcades. If only it had wifi it would be even better.

This was a really well-run and friendly hotel. It has a small amount of car parking underneath in a garage accessed from around the block at €6/night, though there are also large car parks within walking distance and (if you're lucky) parking just outside. Breakfast was €6 with a seemingly unlimited supply of coffee. We stayed in a triple, and were put up in room S11, which overlooks les Arcades themselves (see pic). A little noisy on Saturday morning because of the market, but to be expected.

We stayed here in Jan 2011 and had the most pleasant surprise. The location is just wonderful and we were lucky enough to have a window to the street. We watched the markets set up early on the Sat morning and enjoyed strolling to nearby restaurants to eat. Although a lot of places were closed at this time of year we thoroughly took in the local atmosphere. Coffee or wine at the Hotel downstairs and the service was second to none. The rooms are a little dated but roomy. Breakfast was traditionally French and more than enough. Looking forward to staying there again.
