About this Hotel

Price From $107

New owners have almost completely renovated the 28-room hotel, exposing amazing 17th-century wood-beam ceilings.

Wall colors tend toward the dark, rich side, but they're generally balanced with bright fabrics, light floor tiles, and modern furniture that borrows from antique styles.

The Belvedere ($178), which has a 360-degree view of the rooftops of Arles, may be worth a splurge.

All rooms are air-conditioned, there's a massage therapist on call, and the cool art books and toiletries in the rooms are for sale in the hotel boutique.

Details Doubles from $107 (€75).
