When making a reservation by internet you correspond with Philippe the manager and he couldn't be more helpful. We took the TGV train from CDG to Avignon and then the RER train to Avignon Center. When you come out of the train station to your left you see the sign for the Grand Hotel.A few minutes down the sidewalk you... More

Hard to find, until you realize this is a rental service inside the Grand Hotel. Philippe runs a great business, offering character and personality to renting privates suites within the Grand Hotel. Local knowledge, and care, make this a fun stop on the map. We'll definitely return with more time.

We enjoyed our 2 weeks stay at Thames which was a great place to stay in Avignon.

I don't think there is a better place to stay in Avignon. 15 to 20 minute walk from anyplace you want to go in Avignon proper. The rooms are big and clean and you can't beat the prices for what you are getting (a legitimate hotel where you don't have to worry whether the sheets are clean or if the... More

My review too is overdue, we stayed in September 2013. The resounding positives of staying at the Thames Apartment are mentioned over and over, so I will try not to repeat myself. If you have a rental car, and are exploring Provence, it is the ideal location. Don't worry if you have not pre-planned where to go and what to... More

This review is long overdue as we stayed at the Thames, Avignon in August 2013. This was the best hotel we stayed at during our entire 2+ week vacation in Provence for so many reasons.

We had the same experience as so many other reviewers. This is in a good location opposite the wall. It is comfortable, has many amenities and extras and the kitchenette and extra room allowed us to get some food from the markets and cook it there. A bonus when you are usually staying in hotels on holiday. But the stand... More

I travelled with my 2 sisters and highly recommend this place. Phillipe was absolutely wonderful. Gracious, kind and he gave us great recommendations of lovely restaurants and things to do in and around Avignon. The room was clean, spacious and location was within walking distance to everything. Will definitely visit again. 2 thumbs up.
