Accommodation: Arles

This is a selective guide to the best hotels and B&Bs (chambres d'hôtes) in Arles.

All of them have been visited personally, not written up from press releases or the hotel websites, and we've had a jolly good look round them on our "inspections".

But remember: hotels can change hands, be totally refurbished, go to rack and ruin or even close down altogether. For this reason we have noted at the bottom of each review the date(s) when we visited.

You can book some (though not all) of them through a link to one of our affiliate partners, such as, who offer a wide range of hotel and hostel rooms, gîtes and villas and apartments.

By making a reservation through them you can often get a very good bargain while helping us cover the running costs of the website.

The other, increasingly popular, option is, of course AirBnB, which is very well entrenched in France (though, as elsewhere in the world, hoteliers are lobbying against it).

And, if you sign up to this online peer-to-peer booking agency using this link, you'll get 25 €uros off your first stay! logoClick here to book a hotel in Arles
