You can just walk out the door and you're in the center of the old town of Arles and in the footsteps of Vincent van Gogh. I just loved this location. The room was clean and spacious and we had a phenomenal, fun view of the central Forum Square including the Café where Van Gogh completed a painting. The only...

Reasonably priced rooms. Breakfast extra, but very good. Very nice room. Relaxing by the pool, surrounded by ancient walls, was a treat. Within walking distance to all of the ancient Roman sites. Helpful staff.

The Forum is very central so a good location. Our room was clean and reasonably spacious. It was furnished with interesting local pieces. The hotel itself seems a bit faded and out of date. But it was a perfectly good place to stay when visiting Arles.

We arrived by bike, looking for a last minute room during the busiest festival weekend of the fall. The staff of this family owned hotel could not have been nicer or more helpful. Although a bit dated, the room was generous in size and the swimming pool was wonderful. The location could not have been matched for this price.

Unfortunately I only spent 1 night in this lovely hotel, but could have spent a lot more! The hotel is situated on the old Roman Forum (hence the name), slap bang in the middle of the wonderful town of Arles. The hotel is great for sightseeing and is no more than 15 minutes’ walk from the majority of the Arles...

This hotel is very charming, the breakfast is lovely (and you can eat it by the pool) and the rooms are clean and full of character, with comfy beds. The hotel is also in a fantastic location in the bustling Place du Forum (and opposite the famous Café la Nuit painted by van Gogh). The staff here are wonderful -...

My entire family really liked this hotel. It's well situated near sites and restaurants and a yummy ice cream shop and even yummier patisserie. The hotel itself is historical but very quirky. The friendly staff had to lead us to our room, as getting lost in the multi layers and floors was a possibility. Our room, 32, was large, even...

Right in the heart of the old town, where the roman forum used to stand (a few colupmns from one of the gates are still standing next door) we spent a few marvelous days there. It is not the most modern place in town (who cares in a town with such a past) but the place is meticulously clean and...

First of all, I have to say the staff were all very helpful and friendly from the moment we checked in until the moment we left. The location is excellent, right on a square packed with restaurants albeit very touristy ones. The pool looked lovely and it would have been nice to use it as it was very hot but...

We spent a lovely few nights at this hotel during the photography festival in Arles. The staff were super nice and helpful, both during the run up to our trip and during our stay. The pool is a welcome respite to the hot streets and it's right on one of the main squares of the town (the noise from the...
