Exceptional 10.0
Hotel with wonderful authentic Provençal character
I'm so glad I found the Hotel Cardinal, as I did want to go all the way to Provence just to stay in a generic modern hotel that could be anywhere in the world. The location is brilliant - the Musee Granet is across the road, the Caumont Art centre is round the corner, and the Cours Mirabeau (the main promenade) is three minutes walk away. And yet it's peaceful and quiet. Some people might think the hotel's decor is in need of updating and modernisation, but there are scores of hotels that would fit them. This hotel has authentic Provençal decor, yes some of it a bit kitsch, but that's all part of its charm. My room was always clean, and the management were friendly and welcoming. My room was on the third floor, but no problem - there is a lift. The hotel was a very good price - I went on my own and a 'single' room was 70 Euros - but I did have a double bed, and a very spacious room complete with seating area, TV, and even a desk next to a window with a view of rooftops and the courtyard. I did love the fact that there are genuine paintings on all the walls, not just prints. I didn't have breakfast in the hotel as it's cheaper to pop out to grab a petit dejeuner out in the town... that is the one let-down I can think of. Everything in Aix is within walking distance... the town is magical... I definitely hope to come back one day soon and will stay at the Hotel Cardinal for sure.

We love this place, we stayed here 7 years ago and enjoyed it then. This time we had a great terrace and a very large room. Best 2 star hotel I have ever stayed in.

A good value 2 star hotel, excellently location.
Lovely hotel, decorated with a lot of character. Excellent location - a short walk into the heart of town yet a peaceful location. Breakfast: fairly simple but good value continental breakfast, nicely served in a comfortable dining area. It would have been nice to have some fruit offered. Pleasant and comfortable room, comfortable bed. Wifi adequate. The lounge/dining area was a pleasant retreat from the midday heat!

Great little hotel!
Third stay there on the last 3 weeks. Smallish hotel great location not far from the Cours Mirabrsu and all it has to offer. Will stay there again next time in Aix for sure.

Poor 2.0
Stay away ripe-off hotel.
This is hotel was the worst I stay since many year. I don't understand the positive comment about this hotel. It is hold and cheap. We have paid 180$ for a large room 35 meters with a kitchen in fact it was a small room directly on the corner of the street. There is no kitchen at all it is only a small fridge and few dirty dishes with a coffee machine but not coffee. A sign is asking to clean the dishes but nothing to clean only a dirty sponges. The room was dark with damage curtain, smelling dust and mold. During night we where sufficing because of the mold. The toilette is under the stair. Pillow where in an hold armoire pink or velvet color plus not very clean. You are directly on a corner every body see in your room both side. Impossible to open the curtain. Close to very famous museum and churches so at night every body come to see the churches and speak loudly. Very noisy directly beside the street. You think you are in prison or in a basement. In advance I communicate with the hotel to make sure our room was ok and the told me we where in front of a nice tree wow we where far from being near a nice tree. We complain so they show us an other room in the hotel only one window and very small and hold so we refuse this room no other option was of course available. I don't understand the nice comment of the other customer. If you want to enjoy your travel don't spend a minute in a ripe-off hotel like this.
