Trip on the TGV

... of her guides before, but I will look them up. Dinner here was good. Now, one glass of white and one of red later, I'm ready for bed. The white was okay, but I really liked the red. It was "just" house wine at €2.30 a glass, but I think it was Pinot. I'll probably go back to the same restaurant tomorrow to try it again tomorrow. Gosh, I like this holidaying ...

... the van Gogh tour, as he actually spent some time here and completed several of his works of art.

This is an interesting little tour and worth doing if you have the time, and definitely if you're a fan of van Gogh.

We arrived just after midday and just missed the farmers markets near the Tourist Information ...

Crocodiles and palm trees

Weekend trip to catch up with some mates.

We simply wandered around the streets of central Nimes, which is a small town with quite a large Ancient Roman influence.
Most of the time was spent around the Arena and the nearby streets, visiting cafes, restaurants and shops.
The 'icon' of this little town is a palm tree and a crocodile.
Unfortunately, most things were ...

On the other hand, when I bought a snack at a kiosk in the Zurich train station, the lady behind the counter complimented me twice on how well she thought I spoke German. I felt pretty good whe she said, "You really speak good German".

That happened to me once before, years ago, while I was travelling around Germany after my foreign study quarter at K. I've ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Marquis de la Baume Nīmes

    Not really so new anymore

    from

    We stayed for the second time at the New Hotel La Baume. The last time was three years ago, and the hotel was newly renovated. This time it looked very tired and in need of a good cleaning and facelift. The building itself is very charming, an old maison that has been restored and turned into a "boutique" hotel. Many of the original architectural attributes from the 16-17th century have been preserved including the beamed roof (seen only from within the room) and the marvelous stone staircase with renaissance windows. Reaching the hotel by car is a harrowing experience, as navigating through the tiny streets of Nimes is tricky. Parking is an issue, you are pretty much left to your own at the public parking garage or on the street.

    Really liked Hotel La Baume

    from

    We had a lovely time at this hotel; the staff were very helpful and friendly each time we approached them. Although the room was a bit small, it was perfectly comfortable and the bath was great to relax in after a day's sightseeing. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and would go back if I had the opportunity.

    Needs a makeover

    from

    We stayed here in early February 2005 following a previous visit in 2003. Whilst the promotional rates are good value, our room was small, cold and in need of redecoration. Staff are very friendly and helpful and public areas in good condition, but at least one room needs to be redecorated!

    Great location, lovely building, scruffy room.

    from

    Perfect location - near to all the main sights and restaurants, yet off the main road and quiet. Unusual and charming building. Pleasant vaulted breakfast room and bar. Staff friendly.

    Will go back again

    from

    I stayed here with my husband last month on our last night in Nimes. However, we both wished we had booked this hotel for all 3 nights - our room was really stylish and the inner courtyard and steps leading up to the rooms were fantastic. The staff that we met were very friendly and helpful and we would definitely stay there again.

    So unhelpful

    from

    The public areas of the hotel are stylish the location good but the staff were so unhelpful. When we checked in (late May 2004) they sent my husband off to the car park which was some distance away was only cursory directions.

    I was left with 3 very large and heavy bags. The two men on reception did not help me although it was obvious i could neither carry nor wheel all the bags at once. I had to make two trips to the lift and then struggle to get the bags into the lift and keep the door open. This in full view of a number of staff as was my struggle with the bags on arriving on our floor.

    When we were leaving we received the same lack of even basic help. In my experience this rarely happens in rural France but it happened here. I wouldn't go back.

    Pleasant Surprise

    from

    As Arles was full because of bull fights and Easter, I wound up in Nîmes and this interesting hotel, part of a small chain based in Marseille.

    Good value

    from

    The staff was helpful and friendly and our room was comfortable but not luxurious. For the price we felt it was a good value.The open staircase is quite beautiful (which our room looked out onto). Nimes is worth seeing and New Hotel la Baume is a good choice.
