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

This Hotel is right in the middle of everything and so very convenient to the attractions. The front desk was excellent and tried to help with each complaint. For the senior set...70 and over...it was a stretch to drag our luggage from the parking garage over cobble stone walk ways and stairs to our hotel. There are 2 mercury hotels... More

We stayed for a few days during a really hot period in June, and the cool stone walls were very welcome. Great central location directly opposite the Palais des Papes. This is an OLD building, and our room was on the small side. However, it was well appointed, and the aircon unit was a welcome modern touch. The hotel has... More

Interesting, very old building in good location near centre of town and opposite the Palais. Stayed one night and arrived in the middle of dinner on Saturday and restaurant busy so it took a bit of time to be dealt with but otherwise staff reasonably attentive. Our room (26) only had a view of an internal courtyard area and was... More

Loved the history of this hotel. It is my understanding that this building was in existence before the Palais des Papes was built in early 1300. Our room was large with a great view of a pedestrian mall with a plethora of sidewalk cafes.The bathroom was of a moderate size and clean. We were within walking distance of most historical... More

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
