We stayed here 4 nights and were very pleased. Our apartment was very comfortable, and conveniently located just outside the old city walls and close to the train station - although we were never bothered by train noise. The apartment was clean and well equipped. Ours had two big comfortable beds in two separate rooms each with separate access to... More

In Sept. we spent 4 wonderful nights at the Thames Residence Hotel. The location was absolutely perfect and our room had the big terrace facing the city walls so we enjoyed some evenings with wine and cheese (from Les Halles) and basking in the memories of the day. Phillipe is a fabulous host - he anticipates your every need and... More

This property is convenient to the train and Avignon. And when Phillippe gives you advice, please take it: he knows what he's talking about. His advice ranged from things to do, wine to drink, and restaurants to patronize. And he was on the mark for each one. Also, for Americans, the rooms are at a level you are accustomed to.... More

The location and the room were ideal. We took the train from Paris and just walked a few hundred meters rolling our suitcases. Our room was not ready so we spent some time with Phillipe and it was time very well spent. Phillipe made a lot of observations and suggestions and all proved to be beneficial. He suggested wines that... More
