Art is the theme in this former home of the cardinals, when Avignon hosted the papacy during the 14th century. Parts of the building date back to this period but the overall look is 18th century neo-classical. La Mirande’s public rooms, from the 17th century Red Salon to the vaulted intimacy of the 14th century subterranean informal dining room, impart... More

It is very beautiful and special place. Located right next to Pope’s Palace. To get there it is quite an adventure – all the roads in town are one way and gets extremely narrow – so follow carefully directions which hotel gives. Everything in the hotel is original, with history and in great shape. It is like to be in... More

The hotel is as you would expect - great. The stay was made even better by the people. Friendly and courteous from the front desk through to the breakfast staff. Rather than having an air of authority which often comes with a hotel at this rate they were very down to earth and gave the impression they actually cared.

La Mirande deserves six stars out of five. Except for the somewhat harsh towels, this hotel excels in every respect. It has the best location in Avignon, facing the back of the Papal Palace, the center of Avignon's historic universe. It has the best staff I have met in a hotel. They spoke perfect English, without a trace of an... More

We arrived late and had a wonderful stay only for one night. We were passing through from Paris and ended up here. Great choice we ended up with the chef telling us stories of all his guests that have sat at this table very entertaining. Breakfast in the garden was a highlight. So close to all the sights would recommend.

Very nice location right behind the Palace Des Papes. It really is like staying in a museum. Our room was smallish but had a large bathroom and also a cosy balcony with a view of the rooftops of Avignon. A difficult place to drive to so I would recommend taking a cab (the streets in the old city are extremely... More

My husband found this beautiful hotel for us and what a location and what a gorgeous hotel. We were directly across the street from the Palace of the Popes and this hotel was actually one of the Cardinal's homes. They have done a beautiful job of restoring this hotel.

Choices are pretty limited around Avignon and this is probably the best or one of the best. It's a very charming hotel with classic provencal architecture, period decorations and furniture, photos on the web are pretty representative. There was a bit of a sense of past glory though, felt a little like the Grand Budapest hotel from the Wes Anderson... More
