“Easy walking distance to town, almost next door to Byblos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2011

Stayed here towards the end of June...

This is a really small hotel, but ideally situated in St. Tropez a very close walk to town, as well as the infamous Byblos Hotel (along with its restaurant "Spoon" and Nightclub "Caves Du Roy").

Compared to all 7 other hotels I stayed at during a month-long trip around Europe, I've never paid so much for so little... but that's St. Tropez for you. The layout of the rooms isn't the greatest, the toilet is essentially in a closet behind the bed and you have to walk across the entire room to get to a sink.

If you're coming to St. Tropez during the summer be sure to book early - it's amazing how many hotels I considered were sold out, even more than two months in advance. As well, a car is essential if you plan on visiting any of the beach clubs which are a short drive away (went to Club 55 and Nikki Beach).

if you are looking for a hotel within walking distance to st. tropez -perfect. the rooms , cleanliness, all fine. especially the sizes of the rooms and the bathrooms is mentionable. the pool and ambiente rather cool, but it works. in st. tropez you will be out and about anyway! enjoy ! don't miss the market - lovely stuff for relatively good money , for the rest , never go to cote d'azur if you want to safe money !!!!!!!!!!!

My husband and i stayed at La Mandala for 5 nights in mid-January, possibly the quietest month for Saint Tropez. What a find the hotel was - it made our stay extremely pleasant. The hotel is open all year round. Situated 2 minutes from the centre of Saint Tropez restaurants, shops and port we felt extremely lucky to find a haven of comfort, good taste and peace at a time of year when many restaurants and hotels are closed. The bedrooms at Le Mandala are furnished in modern minimalist style - spacious, large comfortable beds, flat TV screen all beautifully and spotlessly maintained. - Our own little apartment with a private terrace equiped with sunloungers for the warmer months - very private and quiet. We know Saint Tropez quite well and think this hotel is good value for money. The owner was extremely helpful with recommendations about restaurants, shops etc. We look forward to coming in the Summer when we can make use of the swimming pool too.

we have stayed at le mandala twice already and the walking distance from the town makes your stay very relaxing (usually st tropez is jammed with traffic). Also the team have made us feel like home from the start taking care of every of our needs or desire as if it was for themselves. I recommend it for a special WE or a week in the summer and surely ask for advices at the front desk for restaurants and leisure.

the hotel le mandala in st.tropez is unfortunately definitely one of the worst i've ever been to. though the rooms might seem quite beautiful and modern, that's where the problem begins: the rooms are very small, have no proper doors (the only entrance to the room is a terrace door/large window and everybody can see into your room and directly onto your bed), only one little closet, no space for your luggage and the worst thing about it is that there is no wall or door between the bedroom and the bathroom/toilet! that means, the toilet is directly next to your bed! i was at le mandala with my new young girlfriend and it was sooo embarassing to go to toilet while she was in the room! so everything was - of course! - stinking so much! you cannot reach the centre of st.tropez on foot. you have to go there by car unless you want to hike with ugly and unstylish hiking boots - but everyone knows that you can't walk around like that down there at the cote d'azur! at le mandala there are never enough parking lots. don't know where to leave the car at night considering it's not that undangerous there. but the worst of all was the staff. at night there is no one and if there is one (maybe for 5 hours per day, if you're lucky) don't even try to talk to them. those people, and especially the owner man, are so unfriendly and incredibly rude i didn't trust my eyes and ears! this guy was worse than everyone i've ever met!
