We stayed in this hotel for one night. We had booked the hotel for two nights based on its rating on Trip Advisor. We have never been so surprisingly disappointed! It was dark, shabby and in NO way should ever be recommended as a 5 star hotel. It has a dark and eerie feel to it. We put a chair... More

I give this hotel 4.5 stars for an excellent stay with Phillipe and the Thames Residence Hotel! This is not a luxury hotel but a moderately priced apartment style hotel located across from the walls of the old town of Avignon and within 1-2 hours drive of Luberon, Arles, Nice, etc. We had a wonderful time in the area experiencing...

There is no way this hotel should have the number one position in Avignon. Phillipe greets you from this office which is unkempt and several dogs are laying around. The hallway is indeed absolutely scary and poorly lit (motion sensor lights are essentially useless as they don't come on until you walk under them). Our room,which was at the end... More

An absolutely fantastic experience. Thames Residence is brilliantly located close enough to the train station for access, yet just outside the walls of the old city of Avignon. My wife and I had a lovely room with a very handy kitchenette. More importantly, the air conditioning was fantastic during very high temperatures in July! As someone who regularly travels for...

We reserved with Thames Residence after reading the Trip Advisor reviews and we were not let down. Philippe is just a wonderful host, who helped us so much to enjoy Avignon and the surrounding area advising us on restaurants, places to go, travel, plus much more. The apartment was true to the web photos, top quality with plenty of lounge... More

The 6 of us stayed in Thames residence for 5 nights in the busy month of July. Phillipe managed to get us three rooms. Honestly the room rates were far beyond our budget but all other accomodations had been fully booked. It turned out that we really enjoyed our stay.

We spent an amazing 3 nights and 4 days in Avignon. Next time it will definitely be longer as there is so much to do in that part of France. When we do, we will absolutely stay at the Thames!
