Excellent Eclectic Enterprise

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 13, 2007

Unique Quality: A wonderful three nights in a great 4star + Hotel in a delightfull square with all the hustle a bustle of this great French town. A cross between ' Out of Africa' and 'Casablanca' with great decor service and informality. Christine our host is wonderfull and Madame ? the owner astute in her dream.
By no means a standard corporate Hotel but exciting proffesional and great fun , yet sophisticated and relaxing. The Bistro food eaten in the square on the Terrace or in the restaurant was very good although the menu does not seem to change?

Directions: Great district just down from the Amphitheatre and close to the river

Eccentric, with much personality. If you must have a new, modern hotel, this is not for you, but:

I recommend this hotel for 4 reasons:

- It's historic character;
- the location right on the Forum overlooking Cafe van Gogh;
- the food (Brasserie du Nord-Pinus ) and most of all,
- for the wonderful and extremely helpful lady who resides just to the right of the lobby as the concierge.

If you speak a little polite French to her, she is so kind, helpful, knowledgeable and professional (at least she was to me), she alone makes staying at Nord-Pinus worth it.

A standard room in 2008 is now about 160 Euros (superiore ~ 230 EU), and about 17 Euros / day to park a car in the garage.

As a special treat, for between 300 and 400 Euros/night they have a unique "bullfighter" suite/apartment. Many bullfighters and artists (Picasso) have stayed here.

Unique Quality: See above. A quick story:

One evening, having a tough time picking out a good, non touristy restaurant near the forum I stopped in to speak with her (the concierge @ Hotel Nord-Pinus) and asked her opinion.

Even though I was not staying there at the time, she acknowledged and helped me with my poor french, offered her suggestions, and when she saw I was confused by her directions, she left the desk and took me BY THE ARM directly (about 5 streets total) to her 2 favorite restaurants (they were both excellent).

I am going to pay extra for a terrace room @ Nord Pinus next time I return to Arles, just because of her.
Madame, vous êtes tres aimable, et gentile! Nord-Pinus is privileged to have her working there.

Parking note: If you drove to Arles, driving your car in&out of the old city & parking can be an adventure.

ps... Check out the fotos all over the hotel of guests that have stayed there... especially the Helmut Newton bw nude of Charlotte Rampling taken in the Nord Pinus Grey Room.... woof..

Directions: In the forum, Cafe van Gogh on the left, Nord-Pinus directly in front of you behind the statue of Mistral.
