This hotel is as bad as they get. Avoid it if you possibly can. Surprisingly it was included in Lonely Planet guide. It is very run down, very noisy and in ugly location. Breakfast is awful. The only good thing about it was that parking is free in a nearby car park.

Hotel La Caravelle is well located for the main part of town, near some cute bars, shops and La rue d' Italia, but it is a painful drag to and from the station and the bus terminal especially with suitcases. Our room had its charm with its shuttered windows overlooking the garden and with the romantic shuttered windows also over...

My husband and I and our two older children (17 and 23) stayed here at the beginning of our vacation. We had the family room on the first floor. The beds took up most of the room, but the bathroom was huge by European standards...no curtain on the shower, but that really turned out to be okay. It was extremely...

This is a decent, affordable hotel, relatively close to the Cours Mirabeau and central Aix. Our family room was directly off the lobby. It was cramped, and the bathroom, while clean, had a shower with no door or curtain. For the price, this was fine for a one-night stay.

Aix is kinda a pain to get to from the train station, but I suppose it is my own fault for not realizing that before hand. We finally got to the hotel, and were greeted with lovely service and.... an elevator! Yay! Our room was "renovated" which still meant that it had a pretty stained carpet, but besides that was...

We've booked this hotel with 65 Euro/nite. This hotel claim itself to be 3 star but we think it's only worth 2 star at most. Most rooms in the same floor are equipped with air-cond but not the one we've stayed. We went to ask the staff & they gave us a small fan. All the light bulbs were blown...

Aix en Provence is a lovely, upscale city in the heart of Provence. For a budget minded traveler in this region, Hotel La Caravelle is a perfectly acceptable option. Our daughter was attending school here for the semester and we were within walking distance of her host's house and the school. The hotel is basic, but there are some very...

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in Sept 06. We paid the premium for a "renovated" room but were disappointed to find it had really worn carpet (stained and starting to come up) and a bathtub that had been pretty shoddily repaired. The view was nice, but there's a lot of hallway and neighbor noise too. Places...

We got a non-renovated room and it was old but clean. For 47 euros, we didn't expect much. The staff was very friendly and service was excellent! We didn't get the breakfast either because there's a bakery around the corner that serves the same stuff for cheaper. Plus, everything is within walking distance and on rue d'italie, you can find...

The service at Caravelle is very friendly and cheerful, the location is great for exploring the old quarter and the rooms are good at a reasonable price. We skipped the continental breakfast which was just croissants etc, juice and coffee, and found a great little boulangerie at the corner of La Rue Rene which offered excellent choice of the above...
