This hotel is old fashioned: extremely rundown, in need of urgent refurbishment and renovation. Nonetheless, the service is homely and friendly, immaculately clean, and it's in the very centre of Arles. We had the best, top room, lovely view over the refreshing pool; I would not recommend facing the square, which is busy and bustling morning til late night. A...

This is a hotel for those who love the past. You will not find soap, shampoo,or washcloths furnished but waking up in the huge room 55, painted Van Gogh yellow, makes up for those things that are lacking. The cool and quiet pool area is perfect for relaxing in the afternoon or a pleasant place for breakfast. Staff could not...

This hotel is situated right in the middle of the old town of Arles. The swimming pool is stunning and you can have breakfast outside.The breakfast was very good with lots of fresh food! The rooms are spacious and very clean and the hotel has a lovely happy ambiance. I would not hesitate in going back.

Historical hotel with spacious and bright rooms. But it's not possible pay 120 euros per night at be waken up at 5.30 AM by the machines that clean the square in front of the hotel. Every morning at the same time, the noise is so terrific that you have to wake up. The noise lasts about one hour and then...

Charming old hotel right in the center of town. I stayed here with my family, choosing it for the location and the reviews. It did not disappoint. Our room was big, sparsely decorated, as you would expect from an old hotel. It was very comfortable and quiet with a nice bathroom and view of the pool. Breakfast by the pool...

We arrived to our hotel late in the afternoon. Parking was not simple, but the location was worth it, right in the heart of the historic area, looking directly across the café where Van Gogh painted the Café Terrace at Night. The room was decorated in more traditionally Provincial style, with a large window that overlooked the pool and walled...

Typically old French hotel in the center of Arles. The location is great, you can get very easy to all the places in the city. We enjoyed the simple breakfast choice, coffee and 1 croissant, around the swimming pool. Great! The staff is really friendly and helpfull. We had a room at the back of the hotel with the window...

My husband and I recentlyspent a night at this hotel and we were both very impressed. The location is great - right in the centre of the old town, about 5 minutes on foot from the Roman arena.

Stayed here for 1 night. Very nice and clean room and bathroom. Helpful staff too, they helped me personally to find the room and were really social. It's located near a lot of monuments. There's also a small pool outside.
