My daughter and I stayed at this hotel a couple of weeks ago, and thought it was very good value for money. The rooms are rather quirky, but the hotel itself is small and typically a very old french building, which if you don't mind no aircon or mini fridge when the temperatures are 38 degrees, is delightful! You can eat your own picnic and drink your own wine from the nearby supermarket in the hotel garden, where in the morning, if you choose, you can have continental breakfast. The owners go home every night about 8pm, but there is usually a lady on reception who could not be more helpful. The whole ambiance of the hotel is sleepy and relaxed and although the train line goes past quite close, we were not bothered by them one bit as I don't think they run very much during the evening or at night. The rooms are basic, but clean as a whistle, with shower, toilet and fan and in my case plenty of drawers and hanging space for clothes. The bed was very comfortable and the linen changed daily. The layout was definitely quirky, but I liked it, and my daughter's room had a better layout, so perhaps not all the rooms are as quirky as mine which was on the top floor. The stairs are steep and there is no lift, so in the heat was a bit puffed out by the time I reached the top. I think it would really improve things no end if there was aircon in the rooms and a small fridge. The town of Tarascon is charming, sleepy and quiet with no tourists. There was a farmers market on friday, and local people performing a medieval play in the town square, which was charming. There are plenty of ATM's, a supermarket, main SNCF Train Station, and Buses that are very close by. You can get the train to Avignon, Nimes, Arles etc very easily. Also the bus runs on a regular basis, is air conditioned and more like a comfortable coach. There are several good restaurants, very reasonably priced in the main square, where you can sit and sip your beautiful french wine that is cheap as chips and delectable. The Pizza restaurant we found very good indeed. The owners of the hotel are really helpful and friendly, although they don't speak english very well. We managed to get along perfectly anyway. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel if you are travelling on a budget and want clean, friendly, comfortable accommodation, close to the centre of town. Pefect! Would certainly stay again.
