We stayed here for 5 nights in early June and were pleasantly surprised. Whilst is in the middle of two industrial shopping areas, (I wouldn't recommend staying here if you don't have a car), you can't see this from the hotel and the grounds Are quite nice. I would only use it as a base for a few days. Wifi... More

My boyfriend and stayed at the Hotel Cristol for one night during our self-designed tour of Paris. >I am very glad that it was only one night. The room was alright. It was a little on the small side >(there was enough room for the bed and not much else), but the bed and fllor was clean. There was a... More

Hotel is not in town centre but has car parking which is why we chose it. If you're here for a weekend without a car, I would not recommend it. We were stopping by Avignon as part of a road trip, and the drive into town was only about 10mins and you then park at one of the various town... More

The hotel staff was fantastic. The rooms were a little dated but nice. It was just too far from the city to get a better rating. By the time you pay for a cab (buses only run in certain hours) back and forth from the city, it would have been just as expensive to stay closer. If you plan on... More

This was our sixth Hotel stay on a round the World holiday. At first we were dumped in a field thanks to the TomTom GPS, part of the Renault car we had leased. We got back on a main road and followed hoardings advertising the hotel. We drove in to find the place was a really a holiday village made... More

The hotel was really great; friendly staff, clean rooms, free wifi and quiet, but without a car, it is really far from the city. We didn't rent a car and should have done a little more research about the location. A positive is it is right on a bus line (#3, you can board this bus at either the "Thiers"... More

Good room set up, great for families with kids, nice grassy area for kids to run and play, wonderful staff. Cons: not as clean as it could be, dingy smell, far from town.

Interesting city to visit. Make sure to visit Gordes. It was the highlight of this area. Aix-en-Provence was boring. Nimes had good ruins.

I'm writing this from the hotel because Hotel Cristol's high rating on tripadvisor (currently 6/60 in Avignon) could be misleading. Firstly, the good points: it is cheap, clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The major downside is that it is a long way and a 14 Euro taxi ride from the centre of town. It is essentially... More

Just as the reviews promised! This very quaint little place is a great value. My family (wife, 2 toddlers, and me) stayed in a "family room" in the low-season (mid September). The room was essentially the bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a small bathroom, and then a loft with a double bed which was accessed by an ~8 foot ladder/stairs.... More
