Spacious, extremely clean, well equipped apartments with kitchenette, modern bathroom, separate bedroom area, dining and relaxing space, as well as the option of a balcony or the shared terrace, discounted undercover parking. We had two rooms - one with a... More

My family spent Christmas Eve and day in Avignon at the Thames. Philippe was an incredible host and even facilitated a visit from Père Noel himself! Kitchenette facilities were perfect. I only wish we could have stayed longer!

I would not recommend this hotel for a one night stay. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are staying more than one night. The reason is that this is a room where you can hang up your clothes, spread out your belongings, take your shoes off and enjoy the spacious room and a city to explore. This is... More

The location of this hotel is convenient, right next to the train station, allowing easy connection to many of the area's attractions. But as a result, it is a busy. Blvd Saint Roch runs right in front of the hotel, causing the front rooms facing the walls of Avignon to have a high level of traffic noise. After one night,... More
