Not for tourist to far to walk back through dirty areas dont order the sole with butter sauce. its like sole alright on your shoe brown stale. Sauce is the cheapest that the bloke in the kitchen could empty out of a packet, and if you complain the scrufy manager will argue. Let down for best or worst western
Funding the hotel was a challenge since the address provided with the booking was wrong. View at an ugly car park in an industrial zone. Left the car though in the hotel parking. Public areas are nicely renovated
+: The staff was welcoming and helpful - we had problems with window not locking & they solved immediately; The fastness of the check-out process; Availability of the parking spot; Walking distance to the center of Aix-en-Provence -: The room was old and needed renovation - you could feel it especially in the bathroom
We stayed here again (previously 3 years ago)...a testament in itself. Quiet rooms, good breakfast, friendly accommodating staff. We like the locaiton (has car parking onsite) since it's close to a bus stop that is maybe a 5 minute trip to city center (maybe a 15-20 minute walk).
We stayed for 4 nights in late July, and while it wasn't flashy, it was good for what we needed. The rooms and baths look recently remodeled, if the decor is a bit basic. The bed was really comfortable, and the bath was roomy with a good deep tub. The breakfast was nice, though the coffee machines were a bit of a surprise. The coffee was fine. The area around the hotel isn't much to talk about, but there is a nice cafe and bakery around the corner, and a grocery store about 5 minutes away. The walk into town is about 15-20 minutes but easy, and shaded in the morning and later in the afternoon. There was plenty of parking in the garage. My father had a leaking AC unit in his room and once he alerted them they had him in a new room within an hour. We don't really have any complaints about our stay. Its not the flashiest hotel, but for us, out and about for most of the day, it did the job.
Very tired and dreary hotel. The rooms were kept clean but the common areas are awful. Needs a complete overhaul. If you just want somewhere inexpensive to sleep it will suffice. The bar was out of beer for several days.
A quick check-in with a small coach party, cases came up very promptly. A lovely large room with a safe, TV, T/C, fridge, plenty of hangers, not much shelving to put things on or cupboards. A lovely firm bed, good lighting and mirrors. Air con VG. The bathroom had a bath/shower. No slip mats but told to use a towel, a separate bidet and loo. Liquid soap and lovely large thick towels. We stayed for 3 nights and had dinner in for 2 of them. The 2nd night we had Lucas and Lionel serving us, plus another party of about 20+. These two young men were amazing running about with food and drinks. No one was kept waiting, they were amazing. I was impressed. This was served outside by the pool. The pool area not large, but the pool a good size, towels provided if requested. BF a good variety of fresh fruit, yogurt and breads. I loved the dining room decoration of large chandeliers and one wall had 3 large paintings of French ladies dancing. Table clearing tended to be a bit slow and the tables are not very large. Dietary needs taken care of . Near a rail line, but l didn't hear any trains. The hotel is about 15 min's walk to the centre of town, on Thursdays they have a street market. Also a Noddy train which l used, to see more of the area. Enjoyed my stay.
the hotel is standard BW nothing special. During my stay it was full of young soccer players and it was a little bit noisy. Breakfast was good. It's not far from downtown along a traffic avenue. I arrived in the morning but I had to wait until 3 PM to have a room: the hotel informed me before about this, by mail.
The location of the hotel is less than perfect but they were honest about the distance to downtown Aix & when you are at home booking, a 15-20 minute walk sounds fine..... it's when you have to walk it four times in the day (one trip, there & back, to explore & second trip, there & back, for dinner) in temperatures of 34C that it seems like a very BAD idea! We had a car, but given that the hotel offers parking and the idea of trying to find parking in town was not appealing, we chose to walk. The area where the hotel is situated is also not attractive, has no restaurants or stores close by, other than a gas station. Maybe the hotel could offer transport to the town centre as I'm sure it's older guests find that walk next to impossible in that heat! The room was spacious with aircon but very tired (our wardrobe doors had been removed & the bare rough edges of the frame just left exposed). Breakfast was good -typical and plentiful. The staff were friendly'ish, but not charming and were a little standoffish at times. Generally the hotel seemed tired and dreary, the location poor and when I visit Aix again I'm afraid this will not be my first choice of hotel.
We arrived from the airport by express bus and couldn't find a taxi to the hotel. They sent a cab to collect us so we didn't have to struggle with our luggage. Reception had several other guests, but always managed to remain calm and helpful. We like being a little away from the noise - but delighted to walk into the centre for dinner.
