The hotel was fine, clean rooms and the location was fine - the address says Boulevard Cornot but that's the back of the hotel, the front is actually in a nicer street. Lovely market in Aix at the weekends.
Good value for money hotel. Lots of stairs no lift, need to be fit to enjoy stay. Breakfast was worth seven euros.
After reading some of the reviews of this place I wasn't sure what to expect. However after arriving I was pleasantly suprised!! No tiny pokey room, no deathly stairs - just a large clean room with bathroom that even had a large kitchen attached (not sure if we had some sort of apartment style accommodation considering there were three to the room). Very comfortable bed, and high quality sheets. Short walk to the center of town. Only difficulty was the staff didn't speek English at all.
The bathroom is too inside the room and not very good isolated. The staff in the morning is amazingly nice but we got a bit scared when we arrived at night and the receptionist was a bit moody.

The room was ok with all the essential facilities and a very good air conditioner. The window didn't open fully which was very annoying and the bathroom had an unusual sliding door which was outdated. Good for a short stay the hotel is 10 minutes from the city centre and the receptionist was quite helpful.
it is only five minutes walk away from the old town. brilliant. everything works. staff great. rooms clean.
This hostel is much farther from the SNCF station than 10 minutes on foot, and even farther from the bus terminal for the TGV shuttle bus. Keep that in mind if you are planning to walk it with luggage. Also, because of the winding roads, Google map is not very helpful in finding the shortest route! There was no WiFi during our stay, which was a bit of an inconvenience. The staff were always cheerful and helpful, which made our stay a lot more enjoyable.
I was looking for a cheap (but valuable) and well-located place to stay. Hotel des Arts fullfills both of these criteria. It is right at the doors of the old city centre. It is also quite easy to park your car. Otherwise, rooms are small, but clean and well-furnished. Staff is not that friendly but keen to help though. When knowing how expensive is Aix en Provence, it seems to me that Hotel des Arts is quite a good deal.
