Hotels in Aix-en-Provence?

Jump to last reply

Have stayed in Aix for a week before and loved the town. (Although we were there when Princess Di was killed, to give you an idea of how long ago that was). Last time we stayed at Hotel des Austines and really liked it except that there are NO showers there, only big bathtubs which we aren't crazy about. Also some reviews suggest there is a serious need for cleaning or refurbishing.
The nicest looking hotel rooms seem to be the Renaissance, and although on a map it looks close, it seems by memory that that area to the Cours is not very "walking friendly". Can anyone confirm or refute that? How long of a walk is it, and is it all sidewalks and easily walkable?
For such a lovely town, it seems most places are really pretty "run down" or they are incredibly expensive places way out somewhere. We want to walk in and out of our hotel a lot.
