I stayed here with a group of high school students and some other adults. The hotel could not be located any better for our needs. It is right across from the Papal Palace. The hotel has a lot of character. It is very old and the rooms are very different. Some of our students had very large rooms with balconies,... More

This hotel is beside the palais des papes and therefore very central. Being right in the center, it is noisy at night and early in the morning. So take a room with A/C, otherwise you will not sleep if you ope the window. Otherwise it is clean. Breakfast is OK but extra charged.

Excellent location, in the heart of just about everything for tourists. But...my room was only very basic, the stone floor in my room was dirty and in three days never cleaned properly. Front desk staff were not helpful and the Internet in my room did not work. Breakfast was very poor-pastries, nothing more. Coffee was hard to come by. Redeeming... More

This was a 24 hour stop-over on the new Eurostar service before proceding to Nice. From the outside the hotel is not prepossessing, and even inside it lacks that spick and span professionalism modern travellers get used to. We had a first floor room 1Bis ( a superior room ). It was spotlessly clean, large double bed, well presented. It... More

This hotel is wonderfully located just across from the Palais des Papes. There are many restaurants and cafes just steps away and you can catch le petit train in the square at the palace. But - our room was on the first floor and was VERY small. The bed was made up for a couple (we are two women) and... More

We had a mixed experience. When we arrived we were met with the host who was wonderful, he made us feel like everything would go swimmingly. However when we checked in later we were shown to a room which was not the room I had expected since the website showed us a pic, of a room with a balcony! we... More

This could not be more central for all the sights in the centre of Avignon, and as such is a good bet for a short stay. Our room was very characterful, with tall windows looking out onto the Palais itself, and was perfectly comfortable, though it is altogether too loud outside to sleep with the windows open. Breakfast somewhat ordinaire;... More
