Reviews : Accommodation

Name: Hotel Arena Frejus

Location: France

The perfect base from which to explore the charming Côte d’Azur and Provence in the South of France is the delightful 4-star Hôtel Restaurant l’Aréna.


Hôtel Restaurant l’Aréna is located right in the heart of the picturesque historic town of Fréjus on France’s Mediterranean coast. The hotel is near to the famous Roman amphitheatres the area is well known for, 3.2 km from the sandy Plage de Fréjus and just 1km from Fréjus Cathedral. The infamous town market takes place right outside your front door! Fréjus Train Station is only 200 yards away and private parking is available on site.

Style & Character

The typically French rooms are decorated in warm colours with Provençal-style decoration. There is a real quaint and quirky feel about the place with wonderful stone winding staircases and beautiful almond green shutters on the windows.

Service & Facilities

The outdoor swimming pool is surrounded by palm trees making it a very Mediterranean spot to chillax in the sun. The exotic landscaped gardens are a treat and the shady terrace is the perfect place for a chilled beverage. Fitness fans will love the gym area which overlooks the pool.

The staff are warm and welcoming. They take a lot of pride in keeping the hotel immaculate and everything is presented beautifully to their guests.


Hôtel Restaurant l’Aréna features 32 guest rooms, most of which face the pool and gardens – make sure yours does! The rooms either have garden, city or pool views with private bathrooms with showers or baths. Luxury travellers should opt for either the cosy Privilege Rooms with views of the pool or ideally the Suite with its private terrace and separate living area which sleeps six or the Duplexes which sleep four people.

Food & Drink

You’re spoilt for choice with restaurants due to your central location but you should make a point of visiting the hotel’s excellent Le Jardin de l’Aréna Restaurant which offers seasonal Mediterranean cuisine that’s rich in flavour and creativity. The restaurant enjoys a stunning view of both the city and the garden, on sunny days take a table on the terrace overlooking the pool. Retreat the relaxed bar after dinner and enjoy an evening cocktail or two.
