“Wonderful Location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

We stayed at this hotel for a week in early September, and were very happy with our choice. Yes, the rooms could do with redecorating (the furnishings were fine) and the en-suite in our room was tired, BUT the staff were brilliant - very helpful and pleasant, from Reception staff to Breakfast Room staff and cleaners! The breakfast buffet had an excellent choice to suit everyone. The location couldn't be better. Two minutes from the Palais des Papes and very central, but tucked away from noise. If we visit Avignon again, this will be our first choice of hotel.

Hi we had a lovely night here and very good breakfast in a lovely bright conservatory. You felt like you were in a castle as the old wall were visible. Excellent location with easy parking. My only small criticism was that our shower went all over the floor when you used it and there didn't seem any way of stopping it. Other than that very posh and felt spoilt.

Very easy to find and located next to multi-storey car park. Walk out front door and you're along side the bridge and a hundred yards from the Palace, so location couldn't be better. Public areas appear to have been freshly renovated, but the room was tired and in need of total refurbishment. Reception staff were really helpful.

Stayed recently 3 days in Avignon with very hot weather ( 38 °) . The airco of the hotel is fantastic. Our room needed a refreshment: some painting and new furniture. Breakfast is very good, the hotel offers a reduction of 20 % on parking cost. Central and quiet location , several good restaurants within a 200 m walk; l'essenteil, le moutardier, l'isle sonnante. Don't forget on wednesday the market at St Rèmy de Provence

Right next to the Pont d'Avignon and the Popes Palace is 2 minutes walk. Bedrooms are standard size and are quiet and quite comfortable but do need some updating. Breakfasts are great with so much choice and the room is set half in the conservatory overlooking the small courtyard garden. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. The reception/bar area did have a slight sewerage smell which fortunately didn't extend to the bedrooms! We noticed this in a few areas of Avignon, so must have been a general problem.

Room Tip: Top floor is quietest

Avignon is a great place.....wonderful atmosphere...so much to see. Hotel is very well placed & parking was easy to find. We were upgraded as Hotel was busy due to festival time. We had a wonderful stay.....only comment is that the decor of the rooms & corridors is very dated & tired...it all needs a 'refresh'...apart from that...superb!

A fairly old and tired hotel with no in house restaurant and fairly average service. Room was extremely dusty and pillows were terrible. But it was in a brilliant location within 2 minutes walk to major tourist attractions. Worth putting up with a bit of dust for a short stay but probably wouldn't put in an extended visit here. There was a balcony but no furniture to sit on and a rather rancid smell emanating from just outside. Just ok.
