I booked a 2 night stay in this hotel due to a promotion through my Club Accor membership. The location (right between Place de l'Horloge and the Palais des Papes) was exceptional. Centrally located right in the heart of the pedestrian-friendly old-town. I made a deliberate decision to return my hire-car before arriving at this hotel for that reason! The... More

I spent four nights with my co workers. Nice staff and breakfast is good. Through my window I could see the papal palace. Right in the city centre of Avignon. Around 10 mins walk from the train station. Good place and good prices here. Calm area and lots of restaurants around. I recommend

We spent the weekend 7th to 10th November 2014 at this lovely hotel adjacent to the magnificent Palais des Papes. We couldn't have been more pleased with our accomodation. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to be of assistance to us. The male night receptionist made our stay exceptional with his advice and friendly banter.... More

Stayed 2 nights during a good tour of France with Gate 1 Travel. The hotel is directly next to the Palace of the Popes and just off the main square in Avignon. We found the hotel very acceptable. Rooms are clean and just large enough. The beds were so-so, could have been firmer. The front desk folks were very welcoming... More

I wanted to be near the Papal Palace, but didn't realize just how close this hotel is to this location. It is literally right next to it. Do take advantage of the restaurants in the Place D'Horlage right outside the door of this hotel. Staff was friendly and the room was in spotless condition. Beds are typical Euro-firm.

We spent three nights in this hotel in the second week of September and could have easily stayed longer. The hotel is located almost next door to the Palace of the Popes, and is right of the the corner of the Place Horloge where a number of restaurants and cafes spill into the square. Our room was on the sixth... More

The hotel is located right in the center of Avignon, next to the Palace. Walking distance to all sites, 10 min from Avignon center train station. Excellent service, free upgrade to room with partial view to the central square. Satisfactory room size, coffee/tea facilities in the room. Only minor disadvantage the not so comfortable bed.

We drove from Luxembourg to Avignon arriving early evening into Avignon. It was the last day of a Film Festival and the old part of the city (where the hotel is located) was packed and many streets were blocked. Our GPS kept saying we had arrived but we could not find the hotel! Finally we found a sister hotel, parked... More
