Unfortunately I will not recommend this hotel. The location is great! but... No elevator to the front desk. We were told that there is an elevator to the first floor where our room was located. We followed the instructions to a green gate which was leading to a service path which was dirty, and there was the elevator which was... More

The Artea is conveniently located for a walk to the Cours Mirabeau and also right by the underground car park. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the overnight parking charge was less than 15 euros. The hotel has no lift, but we only had a small overnight bag and needed the exercise. Our room was on the 2nd floor... More

On the plus side, this hotel is well located near the centre of town But the decor and furnishings are badly in need of updating. There is a miniscule bathroom where some actions were almost physically impossible. No lift to reach reception on first floor or rooms above. Finally, I object to being asked to pay on arrival; it's not... More

This hotel is charming and old. Rooms are on second and third floors, no elevator so those who have trouble with stairs should avoid. Rooms were large, clean and well cared for. Service is limited, the staff seems fairly small since the property itself is also not large.

Very good location on the outskirts of the Old Town. We were in a 2 bedroom room in an adjacent building. I think that some people may find this a bit disconcerting as it is a walk from the main hotel & obviously not near to the reception etc. We weren't particularly phased by it. The room was ok, could... More

The Hotel Artea is excellently situated in the heart of Aix-en-Provence, in an old building just a few minutes' walk from the Cours Mirabeau. The rooms we had were comfortably spacious, the bathrooms small but sufficient.

Very near the center of aix en provence, rooms are spacious, bed comfortable, price is a bit high but aix is expensive anyways so it's kind of a standard. The room just got a weird smell , not sure if its coming from the shower curtains. Aircon can be much improved. Friendly receptionists :)

When we came back in the evening they gave us a room on the first floor facing directly to the street - not calm at all. The room is very little - you can't even open a suitcase without blocking the door - and the smell was really strange ... we will not come back again.”
