Arles, France 2008 Left Nantes around 8:30 am and arrived in Arles at 2:00 pm. Had some commotion as we stopped in Nimes for about 20 minutes. Announcements were made, but I had no idea what was happening. Fortunately the lady sitting across from me explained there was some work on the tracks we had to wait for, but she said she was hoping it was …
Today we headed out of Avignon through the Provence country side south to the city of Les Baux to visit the historic area. It was a beautiful drive through endless round abouts, thank God for our navigation system.
On the return we drove through the small quaint town of St. Remy. There was minimal parking as a bull fight was about to begin.
... filtering back into our minds. We then drove onto Orange after George's recommendation. We found the enormous Ancient Theatre and took the self guided tour. This place dates back to 34BC and it was truly impressive. Just sitting in the arena gave you a feel of what it was like to listen to a show so many years ago. The way this audio tour was presented and the video footage was brilliant. It really gave you a good insight into what was known about the place and ...
... We finally were instructed by hotel staff at Auberge to enter the postal code, and finally we found our next destination in the navigation. Off we went...three hours later we arrived in Avignon.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel De L'Amphitheatre Arles
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.
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
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.
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.
Friendly staff, tasty breakfasts and central. A beautifully restored hotel next to the Arena - highly recommended.
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
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.
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
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
