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.

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.
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.

Great staff, very good location, this is an older Hotel with lots of room, great interior courtyard and good food.
I would expect that this would have been a great location for 1960 James Bond Movie to be filmed in-it fits the theme.
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.
there's good points and bad points!
room was spacious, well equipped and beautiful
staff at reception are very friendly and helpful
bar and restaurant and elegant and there's a lively atmosphere as it starts to fill up. In fact, it seemed to be the busiest restaurant in town
cheap - cost about EUR40 per night which was a bargain I think
no parking - the Arenes underground carpark is 30 metres away but it's EUR21 per day
smoking - when we arrived the first room we were given stank like a wet ashtray - YUK! so we told reception we'd reserved a non-smoking room and they said ALL the rooms are non-smoking, but they just can't stop people doing it anyway. The next room they gave us was fine, but there was often a strong smell of cigarettes in the corridor outside and sometimes it smelt like it was coming into our room
noise - city centres are always a bit noisy, but this was unbelievable - buses, garbage lorries, roadworks - in fact, they're current constructing a new museum just opposite the hotel and seem to be doing the work in the middle of the night.
food - the breakfast buffet is pretty minimal - definitely not worth the EUR10 they charged

"Wonderful Hotel experience, Nimes not so great...."
The Hotel was very welcoming, even when we asked to change rooms because we had been allocated a smoking room, this was not a problem for them. We had a wonderful buffet dinner at the hotel and enjoyed the pool and spa. When we booked in for a beauty treatment this was very professionally done. Great range of treatments for those who have been on the road a while.
