Saint-Remy: Le Castelet des Alpilles hotel

Last week I stayed two nights at this hotel, which is recommended in RS' Provence guidebook, and was generally not impressed. It has a good location, secure parking, a nice pool, and its operators are pleasant, but that's just about all it has going for it.

The place is run down, my room was drab, and my bed was uncomfortable and small (at 5'10 I am not of an unusual size). It's also loud, as any noise in its cavernous halls echoes throughout a floor, unimpeded by the thin walls and the tile floor (seriously, just throw down a carpet runner in the hall). The breakfast is sub-par: stale bread (I didn't think this was possible in France), mushy fruits, store-bought juice, and suspicious cold-cut meats.

At 120 euro per night, this place is a poor value. I won't be returning to it and do not recommend it.

Thanks, this is really helpful FastEddie. I am looking at staying in St. Remy, RS folks really push the town due to is quaintness. It is so hard to pick a place having never been there. But guess if you only sleep there for a week, it isn't that big of deal. But I want it to be clean!!
