excellent location for centre of town Rooms were dirty, decor poor standard. Fire doors were locked on top floor- wanted to walk out but as I had pre booked, would have lost my money Could not get a drink when we arrived very hot - just wnated a soft drink from the bar, but not open until 7pm.
Perfect location for exploring Arles and surroundings.
Hotel was central. Free parking on streets at Hotel ask the staff for details. Free Internet in Lobby. Small on Pool on Roof. Lift was out of action for our stay.
Central location,reasonably quiet at night,it is conveniently close to cafes and restaurants. Hotel completely taken by coach groups hence breakfast had to be taken at a nearby cafe because of the overcrowded breakfast room. The dinner menu for individual visitors had very little choice and only changed once during our five night stay. Fotunately there is a wide choice of restaurants close by. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to to eat there.
Location is excellent
It was easy to get to the hotel and it was in the center of Arles. It is a very old hotel that badly needs to be renovated. The whole room design is out-dated and bears sign of extensive usage. This Best Western is way too expensive for what it claims to be!
Very close to the center of Arles
excellent location, confortable and clean rooms, nice staff
It was central with good parking Room was basic but functional, but breakfast was awful and waitress unhelpful. Receptionist was good and did not charge for breakfast. Initially we were overcharged for the room, the special rate not having been applied.
The staff was extremely helpful, courteous, and pleasant. We had a problem with a rental car agency and the staff was able to help us contact them and interpret.
The staff were friendly and attentive. The hotel was in an excellent location for seeing Arles. It was very clean and well maintained. Despite being in the centre it was quiet and the gardens and pool were very pleasant places to sit. Not applicable
Helpful and friendly staff.Good atmosphere. Bed too small and uncomfortable.
staff is polite and freindly, especially at front.room is pretty.and easy to access by car. nothing special.
The breakfast at 20 Euros was a great disappointment. At that price there should be a good selection of breakfast dishes. By comparison to other hotels charging similar prices it was not satisfactory.Whilst our beds were turned down on the first evening, they were not on the second. We arrived on market day and were unable to access the hotel by car until mid afternoon.
Interesting historic building with poor quality rooms and facilities. This hotel is over rated and is not a four star hotel. In need of refurbishment.
excellent staff,. excellent restaurant, Meals were very well prepared and highest quality. Staff were very helpful. Wonderful location. Very pleasant atmosphere. Very pleasant common areas. Quiet, clean. everything was very good
There were a couple staff members at the front desk that spoke very good English and were of great help with local information. The rooms are adequate but need updating. The restaurant is amazing but come prepared with mosquito spray! All the staff is very polite and professional. The walls are very thin and you are able to hear conversations from people in neighboring rooms.
The location was excellent, right in the center of things. Staff was quite helpful, accomodating and generous. For the price, recognizing the location, we were disappointed with the overall condition of the hotel. It is rather tired and looks it. The building is a charming old one, but could use some upgrades. These comments only reflect our views on the common areas and our room. Perhaps there are other, nicer rooms available.
The problem was that we spent the previous night in small b&b near Beziers. Quality and cservise was uncomparably better for exactly half the price. So if you need clean, comfortable bed to lean your head for the night very near the old town and you are not bothered by the money that much it's a reasonable choice. Remember it's just a place for sleeping nothig more As other guest previously mentioned WiFi not working (it was suprise for the staff when mentioned)- not a problem for us anyway
Very clean and very comfortable. Friendly staff. We paid for breakfast and felt it was good value for money. We would stay here again. Lack of drawers and hanging space for clothes.
Room was tastefully decorated and the bed was comfortable. The location was good, close to the sights and restaurants, as well as being easily accessible by car - always got a parking space in the square directly outside. Carrying luggage up to the third floor.
Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Good location. Stairs only. Bit noisy but didn't keep us awake.
Location, cleanliness, airconditioing in very hot weather!!!
Big room with balcony overlooking square, excellent breakfast, happy and informative staff Aware no lift but there were a lot of stairs to the 3rd floor!
Great location. Good layout and design, nice art work. Will be back
The hotel is in a very nice square, which is also very close to the city monuments, shops and the restaurants. Our room was a little small; the double bed covered almost the whole room, maybe comfort room might have been more spacious. Ont the whole it is a cute, clean hotel with friendly and very helpful staff.
Proximity to attractions and balcony with view of Place Voltaire, plus a great bed with plenty of room. No lift meant getting baggage up two flights difficult but staff helpful in assisting.
very good location near the city center with perfect room with balcony.
A free upgrade to a suite was nicely provided by the hotel. Very charming hotel.
Beautifull room, an oasis in the middle of Arles. Breakfast out in the garden. Staff wasn't that fast, we had to wait a long time for our luggage and car (after checking out).
food is outstanding, a very special hotel toilets too high, would be nice to have had the pool heated
Tasteful period style furnishing with fine old furniture in bedrooms and public areas. The bathroom door handle fell off several times.
Garage parking - really didn't fancy trying to find somewhere close in the centre of Arles. Really pleasant and helpful staff - map of city centre handed to us immediately, really prompt booking in procedure. Charming front terrace in bustly square for digestif and coffee after dinner. Intend to go back some time as this was too brief a stay.
Central and good rooms No ambiance
The staff was especially friendly and helpful. They also spent a good deal of time helping to improve our French. It was fun and a very pleasant stay.
The history of the Hotel and its proximity to the roman buildings. The entire town of Arles is an excellent d example of the layout and workingsan old roman city The Van Gogh references were a dissapointnent, This didnt bother me much as I think any artist who can only sell two paintings while he is alive says it all for me, childish, and off scale . The Arlesians didnt want hin there at all it seems and insisted was moved to an asylum. The lady in charge of the hotel could not convince ne about the Joan Baezs visit and concert or the whereaabouts of the Charlotte Rampling famous nude photo
the location and the town and thecharm of the hotel breakfast was eh
Very nice, and quite quirky but also elegant. A really good mixture of old and new. The staff were all great, and fell mover backwards to help us in any way they could. Nice big rooms too. no nothing
I stayed in the Grand Hotel Nord-Pinus with my son. It was a real gem, the interior decor was fascinating combination of the past and yet a stylish boutique hotel. The hotel created a feeling of a small, friendly, helpful hotel in the middle of the old city of Arles. The hotel is situated on a charming square full of cafes and restaurants. Although the breakfast was good however simple, we thought that it was a little expensive.
Nothing If this hotel is booked, it is critical that detailed direction on how to find it are included. the hotel is located on a street that does not allow cars, and is almost impossible to find. I drove for > 1 hour and could not find it, and went to another hotel to have them call the Nord Pinus, to try and give me soe directions on how to get there. Very disappointing hotel.
This is a lovely hotel with a superb garden and delicious breakfasts. The rooms are comfortable and the bathrooms luxurious. One member of the office staff was less than helpful, but this was more than made up for by another very helpful person.
The room was charming and very clean. The hotel has an excellent location. The staff was so helpful and smiling. It's a great price for a great hotel.
The receptionist, Barbara, went out of her way to accommodate and please us. We liked the proximity of the hotel to all the sites.
The staff was helpful and the location was great.
It was comfortable, clean, affordable, spacious, and a very, very friendly staff. It will be my first choice when I return to Arles. I liked everything...
Friendly and helpfull stuff. Room we stayed was big, comfortable and very nice. Breakfast was good, satisfactory food. Nothing disliked.
The location is terrific. Across the street from the Amphitheater and steps away from wonderful Provencal shopping. The hotel is charming. Very clean, air conditioned. Staff is very helpful with ideas for tours, restaurants etc. Stayed here ten years ago and loved it. Was not disappointed upon my return. No
great location,easy walking distance to some very good restaurants,helpful staff not enough pillows!
Excellent location in Arles. We were lucky to have a room with terrace where you can enjoy a splendid view over the old town roofs. The hotel could be top rated and very highly recommended unless the following would not had occured. In our travel guide the hotel was recommended and they especially highlighted the cool garden with palm trees. When we arrived in the afternoon other guests were enjoying drinks and snacks in the garden. After buying some food from the counter we were refused to sit in the garden without any practical reason and we were forced to sit in the street with direct sunlight and 35 C while there were enough free tables in the garden, there were no reservations and the garden is passable for hotel room access 24h.
Flexible front desk; lovely garden for breakfast Only that they were booked and we couldn't stay an extra night like we wanted.
It's lovely hotel. Although it is not easy to find at first, the staffs were really kind and the value for money was excellent.
The hotel was cosy and welcoming. The room, although small, was very clean and comfortable. We loved the roof terrace where we could relax with a book and a glass of wine. Parking could have been difficult on a busy weekday.
good location accross the river from the old town, very nice people, decent size room, very clean
Hotel owners were extremely helpful. Nice place to stay. Room was clean. Private garage. Breakfast could have been a bit more substantial for the price. Expected ttriple to have three twin beds, but there was a small double bed (smaller than a queen) and one twin.
Ok for a cheap one night stopover, but no restaurant in the hotel.Easy walking access to town.
The owners were so friendly and helpful. The hotel had character and great for walking to places. We should have got our map sorted first!
The hotel was across the river from the town of Arles and very easy walk into to city and also to look at the old ruins etc. We ate at the Wilson on the main boulevarde which was good. The hotel is quiet and the couple who own/run it speak very good english. Unfortunately it was a very windy day (the mistral) and we weren't able to take advantage of the roof top terrace which I believe is great. We were also very lucky to get a park right outside the hotel.
The owner / manager was extremely welcoming and helpful. The hotel is well located, just across the bridge from the city and there is pleny of free parking available in the vicinity of the hotel. This location is far superior to being in the heart of Arles with its narrow streets and limited parking. The walk across the bridge to the heart of the city, e.g, the Roman Theater, takes only 10-15 minutes.
Change of linen daily. Very helpful staff. No hassles whatsoever. Convenient location in quiet area. Good croissants! We were lucky to be able to park outside and there is a lot of local free parking but on a bad day visitors may have to park a street or two away.
The helpful and efficient service.
I liked the the hotel's central location and accessibility to the sites, as well as the proximity to the train station. I had several conversations with the owner, Alain, about my late arrival. He was very upset with me for e-mailing him, as opposed to calling him, about my change in schedule. I apologized to him several times, but he kept at me, and frankly, I started avoiding him to prevent new conversations about this transgression - this persistent browbeating detracted from an otherwise good experience.
Very charming hotel and room. Very central location in the wonderful town of Arles. Ability to control the temperature in the room.
What did we like? I think the location was ok, and it had some pay and display parking right outside, where you could pay in the evening for a view hours in the morning, in case you want a relaxed awaikening with out a ticket. But you do have to shift the car by half eleven latest. After having stayed at the "Citéa La Bastide Du Roy René" in Aix this hotel did bring us immediately back down to earth! The room was tiny and cramped, it had no coffee making facilities and the window was also tiny, It felt like a partitioned of part of the hallway. When we tried to go to sleep it felt like the other guests where walking through our room, the headend of our bed was against the corridor right next to the door. It definetly would pay off to be last, if you want a good night sleep.The breakfast was nothing like in the brochure (promoting local produce) There was some proceced cheese and some cheap salamy available, no choice of cereal, it was very basic and not ideal for kids.
The owners were charming and extremely helpful. Parking is difficult.
Alain and Martine were lovely people, helpful and gracious. We will always remember our stay with great fondness.
Very friendly and supportive staff. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The only problem we've faced with is the shortage in parking places. But it is typical for any old city in Europe.
The location was great, it was close to everything. The staff were very helpful and we were able to print our train tickets in the lobby. The room was large and the beds comfortable. I really liked the bathroom, very clean and the shower was big for France. There were only stairs up to our room, I'm glad we did not have heavy suitcases.
A building with a character and nice interior design Toilet was very small and it was not possible to close the door
A really nice, family-run hotel, in a great location in Arles. The room was spotless. The buffet breakfast was very good. Nothing.
Nothing special to remember other than eggs available for breakfast Very difficult to find; website very unclear on distance from train station; cracked cups and plates; breakfast area too cramped; no cereal spoons supplied; cereal choice too sweet
ground floor room poor mattress, no parking
The people working at the Hotel Du Forum were fabulous, they provided us with lots of local knowledge, they were friendly and very accommodating and helpful. The Hotel was as described, the comfort and friendliness of the bar was a nice suprise. None - our stay exceeded our expectations
Great location, very helpful staff, comfortable hotel with everything you need. Would definitely stay there again.
The Hotel staff were very helpful and nice. The information of how to access the hotel by car (lacking). It is very difficult to find the hotel by car and a link to a map of how to get there would be very helpful.
hotel in great location,after negotiation narrow streets to hotel.limited car parking at hotel .adequet free parking 5 mins from hotel. basic old style hotel .
The staff was very nice, the location was great (near the main square), the room was huge and the beds super confortable.
The hotel is well placed to explore Arles and the surrounding district. It is an old, but well refurbished hotel with really friendly, helpful staff. The bar is large and has a pool table. There is a small pool that is open from morning to 9pm at night. The pool is in a walled garden that contains lovely plants, with plenty of tables, chairs and recliners.Our bedroom overlooked the Place du Forum, and was extremely spacious, furnished with antique chest of drawers, writing desks and the bathroom was breath taking. A huge antique porclein sink, good shower and a bidet.The decor throughout the hotel was excellent. All very spacious. We have stayed here before, and would do so again. Good value for money. Nothing at all.
Central location Building works on going near hotel so had to relocate from original room
The staff was very friendly. They gave us recommendations on where to eat and what to eat. The owner told us about some great wines from her home town. The hotel was great, but as lots of people said, getting there was a real problem - we got lost a number of times. We had trouble finding the street signs.
Warmest most helpful people at the desk. Helped with dinner reservations at nearby restaurant, which was also fantastic. Good breakfast. Clean, spacious room and bathroom.
Location was superb. Could have been more clean,
Everything was beautiful and interesting. Location was also good for access to the train. The negative was that we could not connect to the internet. No one could help us get connected and my husband was quite frustrated about this. We did not have this problem at any other hotel on our two week trip. I also had some trouble booking on line until your web site showed up. Also, the online reply returned to me from the hotel was in French which delayed the booking process until your site appeared.
Convenience to downtown Arles. The location if driving is impossible. We literally wasted hours trying to get to their garage. We left early and rebooked a place outside of town as we used our car everyday for day trips.
The character of the hotel was fabulous and we liked it's central location although we did have difficulty finding it. The service at breakfast was very slow and many tables were left uncleared.
The location of the hotel was perfect for accessing all parts of Arles on foot which was good since once you manage to find a car park space in Arles you don't want to loose it! (car parking is a nightmare in Arles....) On one day we did not get our room made up and queried this with the Front Desk who apologised profusely (advising the cleaning staff were new) sorted it immediately and offered us free drinks at the bar.
Good location but a bit difficult to find. Great pool facility for the kids. Weak air conditioner.
Excellent central location, 10 minute walk from train station, all major sites in walking distance. Character, comfortable, clean.
Very cool hotel in a great part of a beautiful city. The mood of the hotel was a perfect fit for the town. The only thing (and it's not a complaint) was that we were on the third floor with no elevator and some heavy luggage. Still, small price to pay for the ambiance.
The setting was lovely and it was a quick walk to all the sites in Arles.
The staff is very nice and helpful. Breakfast is generous.
The staff were very helpful, when we were caught in a downpour after checking out they were happy to provide fresh towels and a place to change our clothes. The breakfast room was particularly charming and the breakfast the best we had anywhere in France. Two adults, we were given a huge room with two king size beds and a beautiful bathroom with a bath - a real treat after a long day's exploring.
Hotel du Musee was a really nice place. Very centrally located in Arles. Also had a lovely courtyard area within the hotel for breakfest and/or just relaxing. I thought it was a good deal.
The proximity of the hotel to the historical sites in Arles and a great gallery right across the street. Our room was only heated by a wall fixed fan heater which did not heat much of the room. It was cold ! It's quite difficult to get a car to the hotel.
Great, quiet location - was able to walk to all the sites. Enjoyed a delicious breakfast in the courtyard.
the proximity to town centre and the garden courtyard were the best aspects of this hotel.
I liked the friendly atmosphere, good service, historic French hotel look and feel of the building and the proximity to the centre of the interesting city of Lyon.
