The room was expensive but, in this case, we got what we paid for. Point
of clarification: we misinterpreted the "breakfast included"
designation when booking this hotel. We assumed breakfast was included
with the price of our room but, in fact, breakfast was available on-site
for an extra charge. We ate breakfast at the hotel one day, it was
outstanding. The other days we grabbed breakfast elsewhere.
My sister and I loved everything about this hotel! In the center of the
Old Town in Aix, easy walking distance to all points of interest
(including bus station that took us to/from airport in Marseilles),
many dining options, very safe even late at night for two ladies
traveling alone! Although the hotel is directly on a very busy square
where there were late night events, our room was totally quiet --- we
heard nothing! The staff responded immediately to several requests we
had They also made a couple of phone calls on our behalf since neither
of us speaks French.
