« A Good Hotel and a Good Location »

The hotel is well placed for access to the main cultural and shopping districts and also provides easy access to the main roads out of Aix. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful and willing to please. The restaurant prices were high in comparison to what is available locally and the night we went for dinner one of the four main courses was not being served that night. The restaurant was not busy and may reflect the resistance to the cost who knows. The room was comfortable and serviceable but the bed sheets were not big enough for the bed and the buyer of this item should think of fitted sheets which may help the room staff. Why is it that French hotels provide hundreds of TV channels in German and only one English channel - usually BBC 24!

MGALLERY, Directeur général at Grand Hotel Roi Rene Aix-en-Provence Centre - MGallery By Sofitel, responded to this review

Dear Guest, We would like to thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay at our Grand Hôtel Roi René. It is important for us to know about your experience among us. Indeed, the hotel offers a very pleasant location next to the “main cultural and shopping districts” of Aix-en-Provence as you mentioned. We take into consideration your remarks and suggestions about the restaurant and the bed sheets, and sincerely regret that they did not correspond to your expectations. However, your review is very helpful as we are constantly seeking for perfecting our services. We hope to receive you again very soon at our hotel. Yours Sincerely, Elisabeth MENDES- Operating Director

« Peaceful hotel in good location »

Despite being close to the busy town centre, this hotel has an air of peace and relaxation. The rooms overlooking the pool with a terrace are good for smokers. Very pleasant setting for the pool and outside bar/restaurant area. Useful tip is to note the road to the side of the hotel with a pharmacie, mini-market, patisserie, excellent "locals" bar/restaurant and tabac around the corner.

MGALLERY, Directeur général at Grand Hotel Roi Rene Aix-en-Provence Centre - MGallery By Sofitel, responded to this review

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking time to write a pleasant review about us. We are so glad to learn that you enjoyed your stay, and that according to you, our hotel “has an air of peace and relaxation”. The location of our hotel is very convenient, next to the historic center of Aix-en-Provence. All the staff and I are looking forward to welcoming you again, for a next stay at the Grand Hôtel Roi René, still pleasant and memorable. Yours Sincerely, Elisabeth MENDES- Operating Director

« Enjoyable Visit »

The Grand Hotel Roi Rene is located on the edge of the old town, in close proximity to both the bus station and the train station. The reception staff were quite friendly upon arrival, providing us with local maps and recommendations for restaurants in the area. The restaurants recommended were described as 'value - mid range options'. A top tip in regard to the the restaurant recommendations from this hotel was that we had a different interpretation of what mid-range meant. I found the recommended restaurant pricey, with bad service. We struck up a conversation with the other diners and they also were recommended the restaurant by their hotel, and were equally disappointed. I don't believe a hotel should recommend a restaurant unless they fully back it. It felt like the recommendation was more for affiliate kick backs rather than because it was either good value or mid range in price - and I felt quite mislead by the hotel. Despite the recommended restaurant the rest of the reception check-in process was great. The staff were friendly and spoke almost perfect English. This hotel offers hair straighteners to he borrowed from reception (although make sure you know the French word for hair straightener). Although items to borrow from the reception including yoga mats, hair straighteners etc, the reception staff did not know the English terminology for the items (advertised on brochures throughout the hotel). The breakfast was excellent! Croissants were very buttery and flaky. There were healthy options here too as well as your normal scrambled eggs and bacon. Getting coffee service was a little bit trickier - but we got there in the end! The pool area was lovely, although there are not enough sunbeds for the guests so you've got to get there early! It was a very pleasant area, the pool staff were helpful with towels for the pool and helping with umbrellas too. The bedroom itself was comfortable. The pillows were soft and I was able to have a decent nights sleep. We were at this hotel for 3 nights and everything was great!

MGALLERY, Directeur général at Grand Hotel Roi Rene Aix-en-Provence Centre - MGallery By Sofitel, responded to this review

Dear Guest, Thank you so much to take time to write a review about us. Also, thank you for your comments, very precious and important for us, that we are taking them with the most consideration. Indeed, the Grand Hôtel Roi René is not far from the historic center of Aix-en-Provence, but also from bus and train stations. At the hotel, the staff speaks English fluently, and Spanish, Portuguesh, Italian, Russian, French too. The reception borrows to the guest things like a straighteners; hairdryer; yoga mats but also weights, if someone wants to practice sport. We are sorry for the recommendation about the restaurant which was not up to your expectations. Be sure that the reception will review their recommendations. For the breakfast, a generously choice of sweet and salted food is available, according to the tastes and preferences, which guest can choose where they want to take it (at our restaurant; or in their room). We have also healthy food, for people who care about diet. We are sorry for the incident encountered about your coffee order. Rest assured that we informed the restaurant, in order that it will not happen again. All the staff and I hope to welcome you back, Elisabeth MENDES- Operating Director

« Wonderful stay »

We had a great night at this place. The staff were so nice and helpful. Our suite was big and modern and the pool area is just wonderful. I had noticed this hotel before it was converted into an MGallery and decided to try it out in it's new ownership. It has been tastefully refurbished and the service throughout our stay was impeccable. Thank you very much. Location could not be better.

MGALLERY, Directeur général at Grand Hotel Roi Rene Aix-en-Provence Centre - MGallery By Sofitel, responded to this review

Dear Guest, What a pleasure to read your testimony further to your stay at the Grand Hotel Roi René. Staff at the entire guest disposal, so that enjoy their stay. Indeed, before to be a MGallery hotel, it was a Mercure, so it was recently renovated. We are proud to know that you enjoyed your stay and also our location, few walks from the historic center of Aix-en-Provence. All the staff and I hope to receive you again, Yours Sincerely, Elisabeth MENDES- Operating Director

« Roi Rene Aix »

The staff was very nice and made me feel I was a special guest. Only ten to fifteen minutes on foot to the theaters, this is the perfect place to stay and attend the summer music festival and enjoy the city.

« Roi Rene - fabulous »

Impossible to fault...excellent in every way - even the pool was open (and warm) on Christmas and Boxing day. A real gem. Friendly front of house staff, excellent lounge area and good wifi. Very well located for the centre of Aix. Can't wait to return.

MGALLERY, Directeur général at Grand Hotel Roi Rene Aix-en-Provence Centre - MGallery By Sofitel, responded to this review

Dear Sir Thank you for this glowing review. We pass your message to our team. You are right to clarify that our pool is open and warm after renovations this summer. The exceptional location of the Grand Hôtel Roi René is an asset for your stay, everything is accessible on foot. Again thank you for the compliments. Sincerely Elisabeth Mendes Directrice des exploitations

« Perfect location »

Room, staff, and view from our terrace room (of the pool) was lovely. Hotel is perfectly situated. Hotel is a bit hard to find (drove by it twice), and the traffic in Aix en Provence is a nightmare. Do yourself a favor, pay for the valet. Absolutely NO parking on the street. We paid about $10 extra for a terrace view (which was nice), but we didn't use it, since we were running around so much. We drove up from Marseille, and were exhausted upon arrival. The "city" center was less than a 5 minute walk up the street. Hotel is awesome. Expensive, but well worth it.

MGALLERY, stagiaire communication at Grand Hotel Roi Rene Aix-en-Provence Centre - MGallery By Sofitel, responded to this review

Dear Guest, We know that the traffic and find a parking place is hard in Aix-en-Provence, we have a little parking, you can reserve it next time if you want. We hope to see you soon. Best Regards, Elisabeth Mendes Operational Manager

« Good location »

Hotel in good location walking distance from train station and the old town. Nice swimming pool and lobby. Service variable depending on staff member. House keeping also not consistent. WiFi not good.

« Comfortable. Expensive. »

Nice room but should have been for the price! Pillows could have been better... Seemed like lumpy foam things! And they charge for parking! Outstanding breakfast. Dinner restaurant was OK... Complicated bill as part was pre-paid...

The hotel is very conveniently located in the center of Aix; the patio and swimming pool are nice; the staff makes you feel you are a special guest. the room was a little pricy, but it was the international music festival.
