My wife and I have been visiting this hotel for more than 20 years and, unlike many other hotels in France, it still retains the character that made us want to return after our very first visit. If you like glitzy luxury hotels then this is not for you but if you want to immerse yourself in the real atmosphere of Arles then this is definitely the place. Located right on the old main square, you step out of the hotel straight into the restaurants, bars, cafes and shops - it couldn't be more conveniently situated. Inside, however, it is quiet, cool and full of old French charm with some wonderful antique posters of bullfighters and memorabilia of celebrated past visitors. The bedrooms are a good size, comfortable and well equipped without being an identikit of hotel rooms you can find in any modern city. We were very surprised to read some of the reviews criticising the staff as we found all of them helpful, attentive and interesting to talk to about not only Arles but life in general. If I had to sum up this hotel in three words it would be "old world elegance" - and there's too little of this around these days.
