      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel De L'Amphitheatre Arles

      Beautiful, atmospheric hotel in the centre of town

      from

      We had booked a large double room but on check-in got upgraded for some reason to their suite - no complaints! Their suite comprises of 2 nice sized rooms - sitting room with couch, two chairs, tv and minibar, and a cupboard (the only one available). The bedroom had only a comfortable double-bed with side tables and another tv. The bathroom was nicely designed with a separate toilet and dual basins - unfortunately the shower hose fitting was a bit loose so showering was not as easy as it could have been. The sitting room lead onto a large terrace with chairs and table - no view except other houses but it was interesting and atmospheric by virtue of the age of the buildings. Hotel staff very friendly (not all spoke fluent english). Breakfast was not a buffet - standard French pastries and coffee. Internet available (only dialup) for about 4 euros/hour. The hotel's lounge area was very nicely furnished and pleasant to spend time in. They also seemed to be hosting a small photographic exhibition.

      The hotel's location is very central - right by the amphitheatre (hence the hotel's name), arena and a short walk to the main square. Its also very well located for the town's saturday food market and for the town's bars, restuarants and cafes.

      Discounted easy accessible parking available off-site (5 euros/night) - driving right to the hotel not recommended if it can be avoided (narrow streets in the old town!).

      Excellent value given the free upgrade - otherwise would probably rate Very Good.

      We had a truly lovely stay.

      Stylish Hotel

      from

      This was a stylish hotel just around the corner from the amphitheater. The room was on the smaller side but enough for our stay. If you have to stay in Arles, this hotel would be great. However, I'm not sure that I would stay in Arles for more than 1 night as there is very little open at night. One plus is the excellent morning market on Wednesdays and the opportunity to do the self guided walking tour of Van Gogh's paintings around Arles. One other thing, be careful where you step as dog owners do not curb their dogs regularly!

      Lovely hotel, but skip Arles if you can

      from

      Having been wrongly directed from Nimes to Ales, we arrived at ARles with long faces. The hotel itself is OK. We have a quad room which is spacious and nice. Using the internet is expensive though, at 1.5 euro per 15 minutes. The taxi the reception ordered for us the next day was a complete mess - the driver first lured us for a direct ride to Avignon at 60 euro. As we declined, he turned rude. The meter read 6.5 euro when we got off. We gave him a 20-euor note, and he refused to give change, saying that extra fee is required for headcount and our small carry-on bags! We nearly had to fight to get our changes back. Never concede to these drivers. They are a shame to this country.

      Lovely hotel.

      from

      Hotel L'Amphitheatre is an amazing hotel that has been lovingly restored and is a pleasure to visit. I would recommend it to anyone travelling to Arles.

      Gorgeous

      from

      Friendly staff, tasty breakfasts and central. A beautifully restored hotel next to the Arena - highly recommended.

      Excellent Hotel

      from

      Hotel de L'Amphitheatre was truly a delight. The room and the bathroom were immaculate. The lobby had recently been redone and it was charming. This hotel epitomizes the charm of South France. I highly recommend it.

      Great hotel, great deal

      from

      This hotel was the best deal I found in Provence. The artfully renovated common rooms are modern, yet still allow the historical character of the building to shine through. On a quiet street, but still close to everything.

      Fantastic breakfasts

      from

      This is a lovely peaceful hotel in a great part of Arles. It has been beautifully restored from a wrecked condition (Ask to see the photo album at reception to understand how much they have done!) and will be a perfect place from which to explore the town and area. The rooms have been nicely decorated in a simple style, and the public areas are spacious and comfortable. Traditional French breakfasts are served at your table by the friendly staff and are fresh and lovely. We stayed for 4 nights, and had a wonderful time, and will probably return.

      Great 2-star hotel - recently renovated

      from

      This 28 room hotel was recently restored from an 200+ year old apartment building to a nice 2 to 3 star hotel. The English-speaking owners were very helpful and made us feel at home. We stayed in the 9-window Belvedere room on the top floor. After climbing many stairs you are rewarded with an excellent view of town, a spacious room by any standards, and a quiet night. We very much enjoyed our stay and think the Belvedere room is 4-star relaxing. One downside is that it can be hard to find via car and parking is limited to the streets, though we had no troubles finding a spot.Hotel Address:5 Rue Diderot13200 Arles FranceTel: 04 90 96 10 30 Fax: 04 90 93 98 69Hotel

      We arrived in Fontvieille and the place we lived in like a awesome cave.
      It has three stories and it is really big.
      At the bottom story there is a very special room with a big screen TV and it has XBOX360. We have been watching lots of movies. We watched the Maze Runner, very cool, and the movie Shelby. It is a Christmas movie.

      ... br> We are a 10 minute drive from Arles, so the first day was walking through this town.

      It had a couple of roman ruins but not much else to hold our attention.
      Another day trip was to Aix-en-Provence where we wandered around the street markets.

      We checked out the beautiful Chateau d Estoublon, which is on so much land, covered with vineyards and olive groves.
      It was a nice walk around the gardens.

      Our hotel in Arles is beautiful. It is in an 18th century house and we had appies (Boursin cheese and crackers and wine) in the tiny courtyard. The afternoon after we checked in was spent doing the Roman tourist thing - Les Arenes the largest Roman building in Gaul. This amphitheatre held 30,000 ...
