    Our opinion

    A delightfully characterful hotel on Place du Forum, Arles.

    Hotel description

    Having been the inspiration for Van Gogh’s iconic ‘Café Terrace at Night’, the Place du Forum is the marvellous and historic setting for the Grand Hotel Nord-Pinus. Of a classically French design, exteriors are adorned with terracotta features, wrought iron details and shuttered windows. Interiors are intimate and exude an intriguing style, where traditional, opulent and stylish design features are combined with contemporary pieces. Views look out on ageing terraced properties, coloured with alternating hues. The hotel’s history is tangible, and evidence of its prominent guests is scattered throughout the hotel to impart a feeling of its fashionable 1950s-60s heyday. Some rooms have barely been altered since being occupied by such illustrious guests as Picasso and Hemmingway. Continental breakfasts are available at the bar and salon, where French cuisine may be enjoyed for lunch and dinner. But beyond the boundaries of the hotel, guests have the opportunity to discover neat alleyways and squares bustling with life and culture variety galore.
