We were booked in here by friends. The reception and dining areas are beautiful. Breakfast was included and plentiful. Staff helpful. Our room was on the top floor and small, but comfortable, although there was no real wardrobe space and we had crowded the floor with our luggage we could not not get wifi on that floor. The bathroom was... More

A great find that we stumbled upon. Clean modern room within the atmosphere of and ancient stone building. 1-2 minutes walk from the Palais des Papes and other attractions. The room windows opened upon a great pedestrian square where the sounds people and music and the smells of cooking food tempted us to join in the festivities of life. The... More

We were on a guided tour of southern France and stayed at Hotel du Palais des Papes for three nights. The was first time for the tour company to use this hotel and I would not recommend based on our experience. It is in a great location across from the Papes Palace and close to main square which can result... More

Before our trip in September, my wife and I felt like we were beating our heads against a wall trying to find a room inside the walls of old Avignon. We were striking out on Tripadvisor and Rick Steves. We found a last minute accommodation for several days. While walking through the square right in front of the Palais des... More

We had the opportunity to stay in this hotel in September 2013. The staff were friendly and the location was superb. Get details to the parking station before you go if driving because once parked in the right station, it's a short stroll to the hotel. We booked two rooms, one of which had a fantastic large balcony which was... More

After trekking around the whole area looking at some awful overpriced rooms we tried our luck here. I thought it would be too expensive but to our surprise we were offered a lovely room for 70 Euros. The building is great, it has a medieval feel to it. The staff were very friendly and the underground parking was also a... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night in their cheapest room. It is a very old hotel but has been modernised attractively. The room was booked for us by a tour company. There was no wifi accessible in the upper levels of the hotel at any time. Our room was tiny and faced the square which was only noisy... More

We arrived into Avignon late in the evening without having made any accomodation reservation.After trying a number of old city hotels, Hotel du Palais des Papes was our last effort before heading out to a budget hotel. What a pleasant surprise. We were told that there were two rooms available in the hotel and that we were more than welcome... More

Hotel was pretty and quaint with a nice restaurant. Location could not be beat in Avignon, being right on the main square and close to whatever you would want to see. My only complaint would be the lack of usable wifi in the room I was in (room 4 looking over the square). Connections if they could be made at... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights on a short visit to Avignon. The hotel is located near the Palais des Papes and Pont d'Avignon with easy walking access to the shops along Rue de la Republique. The hotel reception staff were friendly and helpful however perhaps more information on parking could have been provided with the booking (not... More
