Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The decoration of the BIRDY is an invitation to travel. You arrive at the reception in the British East Indies at the beginning of the century, and continue your trip to Hemmingway's bar in Cuba. Then you continue your journey by following the birds ...

Not fit for a family with baby. it is located in an industrial estate. the cafeteria doesnt sell food until 7pm so not ideal for someone travelling from afar. The menu has few choices. when we entered the room it smelled of tobacco even though the hotel is "smoking free". The gardens around is really small . nowhere to walk with a push chair really. And the pool is not temperature regulated.

Thank you for your comment I allow myself to answer points by points on your comment. We are actually located on a pole of activity. This is clearly described on all our commercial support. Our restaurant is not open 24/24, and once again the opening hours are clearly defined. However, we offer chips, and chocolate bars, and drinks 24/24 at the front desk, but no baby food. We are sorry for this organizational problem. Regarding the smell of tobacco, the hotel is totally non-smoking. Some indelicate customers do not respect this and we deplore it. We probably would have changed rooms if you had specified at the reception. Our park is passable in stroller, there is access for people with reduced mobility. The size is about 1 hectare plus the large terrasse. And finally, the pool is not heated. We are at the end of October and it remains open only for sunbathing. We receive many families especially in the summer season. We never had such comments, and we are sorry.

We stayed here for 4 nights and upon arrival the level of cleanliness was not good enough and my wife swept the floor. Next day the coffee machines broke down in the breakfast area , so it was chaotic. They were working thereafter but I did not like the quality of the coffee. The breakfast choice was standard. We did eat dinner one night but he food was ordinary. The rooms were well equipped and the situation of the hotel was great for easy access to the centre of Aix. We did not try the pool but it looked nice and clean. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. Overall the hotel needs to up its game a little bit. We would not return.

I am sincerely sorry for the housekeeping problem. In summer we have seasonal staff and despite our controls it is possible that your room is not flawless. In this case we must report it to the front desk so that we could do the necessary immediately. It is very rare that a room is not clean. Regarding breakfast, we have 2 machines plus an espresso machine at the bar. Thank you for your kind words for welcoming staff

The location of this hotel is off center so if you do not have a car, this place is not for you. On the other hand, they have a really nice swimming poll. I had dinner one night at the restaurant and had daurade and it was excellent. The staff is professional and will do anything to make your stay confortahbe.

The hotel feels new and has a nice design. The room had enough space, bed was comfortable and it was clean... but it's not in Aix en Provence! It's in the middle of nowhere, really. If you need a place to spend the night and keep driving the following day, it's a good option. If you want to explore Aix en Provence, don't stay here.

Hello, Indeed and as described very explicitly in all our descriptions, we are located on the outskirts of the city center, 15 minutes. We are also close to the main roads which is ideal to discover the region. And our parking is free which is not the case in the city center. Make the count and you will find that it is not negligible.

The hotel is located about 10 kilometres from Aix de Provence which means a taxi ride of around 20 Euros. There is nothing local, no bars or restaurants. The whole area is very expensive, so expect to pay around 4-5 euro for a small beer. The hotel itself is typical of a business 4star, WiFi is good and there are lots of facilities.....more for summer. The staff are friendly and professional, no problem checking in early. The rooms are clean, plugs by bed for your travel iron and a large TV. My only irritation is that there is no international programs which means reverting to my phone and Netflix. No complaints and I would stay here again

I thank you for this comment. Indeed, we are located in Aix en Provence, about 10 minutes from downtown Aix-en-Provence. As for activities, it is actually more pleasant when the weather is nice, to enjoy the pool, the large terrace, outdoor games such as ping-pong. We also have a games room with babyfoot, pool, flipper and arcade games to entertain you in any season. Regarding International television programs, I take note of your interesting suggestion. Looking forward to welcoming you again to the BIRDY

If you want to visit Aix En Provence city central don’t stay here. If you have an event at the Arena it is close. I brought tattoo artists from US to attend tattoo convention in the Arena. This hotel is nice, clean and quiet. My bed was incredibly comfortable. I had a fantastic balcony too. But it is in middle nowhere. We were at the mercy of expensive Uber’s to go into city central. One evening our exit was closed coming back to hotel and it turned into a 80 Uber ride. The hotel bar closes at 9:30-10 at night and nothing close by is open. Suggestion is to pack any wine or drinks and squirrel away some food in your room. There was a fridge that had a free water available after each cleaning. The Arena is close by.

Many thanks for your comment. Yes our hotel is located at 15 min from Aix en Provence city, 10 from TGV railway, and 20 from Marseille city. If you are coming for leisure, you need a car, take a taxi or use the bus. Note also that our parking is free, who’s not the case on the hotels on city center.

Nice looking contemporary hotel - with quirky ‘candy’ reception area. Rooms are spacious, clean and well decorated. Tried to get room service - called four times and no answer - eventually fell asleep and got nothing to eat! Breakfast was not great quality - small amount of hot food, which had run out when I was eating. If they sort the food out, then should be a good place to stay.

Nice hotel! Wouldn't spend a week of holiday here, but definitely good for business trips or if you look for something for a night close to Marseille or Aix. Note that the hotel is not located in Aix but about 20 mins of driving away. Rooms are lovely, pool looks good, breakfast is fine - 4/5 stars.

Dear Madam, I am unfortunately not surprised to read your comment here. I met you right before your check-out, and I understood that my apologies did not meet your expectations. You had reported to the front desk a smell of cigarette in the hallways when you arrived. Our receptionist Clara then asked you if the smell persisted in your room and you answered by the negative. We would have then changed rooms without problem. Our hotel is totally non-smoking, and some disrespectful guests are still smoking. We sensitize to the maximum and reinforced the signage of prohibition of smoking. As for the restaurant, our restaurant closes indeed at 22:00, as clearly described on our descriptions. A little before 23:00 you asked at the reception if you could eat your lunch basket at the reception. The receptionist then replied that it was not possible at this location. There were still arrivals and you will understand that the reception is not a suitable place to picnic. You still had the option to sit in the bar near the games room, or on the outdoor terrace since the restaurant was closed. Or even better on the terrace of your room, certainly more comfortable than your car. Also note that you asked for bread at the restaurant we gave you of course. You did not ask for a place to settle. In any case, I'm sorry I did not answer your expectations during your check-out.
