Clean, central, almost perfect...
Great little hotel, has a pool and hot tub, but it wasn't on when we were there, even though it was advertised as being on in winter. They said it would take about 10 hours to get it warmed up though, but didn't fit the plan.
Even though low season, they didn't put us in a room with a view, that was off-putting, and the rooms are tiny with twin beds, typical for Europe. Amenities are fine, but for the price I thought we should have had a better room, and really wished the pool and hot tub were working.
There is a breakfast/coffee option, we didn't do it, but it looked quite nice. Mostly french speaking, so if you don't speak french, you might have a communication issue, luckily my travel companion is fluent.
The real hiccup was that there was no taxi service in Cassis, apparently, and the hotel really didn't offer up any solutions or ideas after we called and had several other conversations with them throughout the stay about it. I've never stayed at a hotel anywhere that didn't have some type of pickup or transport solutions. It was the low of the trip. We arrived via train and had to walk about 50 minutes from the station on the hill to get to the hotel at dusk, carrying luggage, just walking alongside the road. There was supposedly a bus that traveled by the train station, however it never came and even two locals who were waiting for it didn't know why it wasn't there. The hotel should have some type of solution, as we can't be the only people this has happened to. It was baffling. Once you're in Cassis, there's absolutely no need for a taxi or bus, but getting into Cassis from the train station, you do need transport. So plan ahead for that.
Looking back, I find humor in it, but when you're in a town you've never been to, at a station nearly an hours walk to town, you're almost in panic mode. less
