We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We felt very safe and loved the location close to the coliseum. You could see it from the front of the hotel across a park area. We asked for a view of the hotel and was put on the 4th floor. All we saw was leaves from the trees. Perhaps the 6th floor would of had a coliseum view? We enjoyed being able to walk right to the coliseum and also visit other ancient Roman sites within walking distance. Only down fall we saw was the restaurant did not open till 7:00 for dinner. All the other restaurants near the hotel were closed on Sunday. This hotel also hosts groups that tour by bus. We met several other Americans during our wait for the dinner hour to arrive. It was nice talking about different experience throughout our visit in France. We did not do a group tour. We rented a vehicle and toured ourselves.
Located in the heart of old town Nimes. Parking was frustrating and expensive 16 euros daily. Many restaurant choices and quality meals at reasonable prices combined with the coliseum and cathedral make visiting old town a perfect addition to any French or Riviera holiday. An extra trip to see the Pont du Gard (Roman acquaduct) an added cultural/historical bonus. Wonderful to see how the French regard their Roman historic period as worthy of preservation.
The Hotel Imperator is old world elegence that has been maintained today. The hotel staff was very helpful with the front desk clerk walking us to our room - if nothing elese than to demonstrate the key that would have been at home in a bank. The room was well appointed. Definitely a stop if we are back in Nimes.
nice room, good view, enough light, basic kitchenette.
Service OK, one very friendly front desk staff provided useful information on excellent parking deal for stays > 3 nights.
Perfect central location to visit the town, most major attractions walking distance

Lovely hotel on a picturesque street in the old town. A square with several restaurants was just a few steps away. The owners acted more like B&B owners. They were charming, personable, offered good suggestions for places to eat and things to do and even carried my heavy suitcase upstairs to my room. The room had air conditioning so I could have left windows closed, but I chose to open them for fresh air, so it was a bit noisy most of the night.

The Mas Carbonnel is convenient if you are looking for a hotel with easy and free parking yet easy access to the historical centre of Nimes. However if you are looking for a romantic address, this is not the place for you to stay. Room was comfortable and clean, but small and street is a little noisy. Easy access to the highway if you are travelling. Staff very nice.
It's very convenient that they have a kitchen and tons of pots, pans, and dish ware - especially if you're planning on staying there for a while.
The only thing I didn't like is that they have no room service and worse, you have to make sure you leave the room spotless before you leave or else get charged. I found this to be just a big annoyance - particularly when you're in a hurry to leave.

Hotel clean and comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful. Swimming pool was in a nice setting with surrounding flowers. Restaurant was convenient and had a good choice of food on the menu. Breakfast was simple and easy without being overcrowded. Lovely to sit out in the shade for breakfast. We were very pleased with our choice of a budget hotel.
Good value for money however we didn't eat at the restaurant which seemed expensive for what it was. We at locally at Best Western restaurant. Room was good as was free parking. Pool was brilliant in the hot weather we experienced.
