“Quiet Night in Avignon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

We had planned an extensive trip to the South of France. Having stayed in Avignon and Avignon Neuve ( across the river) on this trip we wanted to be in the city. In fact this was a planned one night stay, so having a place to park our rental car and the desire to be close to some good places to eat was high on the list. We arrived a bit late in that as always, the rental car places ( all of them) seem not to be able to deal with advance paid reservations. Enough of this side bar, we arrived and found the hotel to be in a very nice spot overlooking the main square just down from the Palais du Pope. Our room overlooked the square, but was high enough that any noise from the bars and cafes was negated. Overall, the room was very nicely decorated, the staff was exceptional, and access was easy. We were on the start of a month long trip so we have a bit more luggage than normal. Only one issue, along the line, the shower had a tile near the bottom that had come loose and a small amount of mold was there. When we told the desk manager the next morning, she was very apologetic and offered us some nice "gifts" for our inconvenience. In that the room and common areas overall were so nice, I am certain they took care of this immediately. As to dining, there are several very nice places close, in fact we had one of the nicest meals we have enjoyed in France in many years.

Room Tip: This is in the heart of an ancient city. Please make sure you get good driving directions to the ho...

I stayed in this hotel this past summer with my mom on a trip to Provence. The location of the hotel was really good and you could walk anywhere in Avignon. We walked from the train station to the hotel and it wasn't too bad with our luggage. The rooms were really large and clean with comfortable beds. The bathroom was nice and seemed to be recently updated. Our room faced the square and one night it was a bit loud but that was because there was a music festival taking place. The next night was a lot quieter. The staff were extremely helpful with planning your day and making reservations for anything you needed. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

A great location and central however unless you are a fan of techno music, being a guest on Friday and Saturday night could be an issue. Service was very good and staff friendly and helpful. Room was situated in third floor overlooking the square so this accentuated the issue with the music.

This is a gracious hotel in a scenic area. First, staff is terrific. We had reserved for six nights and when we got there we were assigned a small room, and three series of steps to climb after the elevator. The manager discovered my problem when we went for breakfast after the first night when I found it difficult to navigate the steps into the breakfast room. So, she arranged for a larger room (which faced the historic square) and breakfast to be delivered every morning. Actually, my husband brought it up as the delivered breakfast would have been Continental only. Rooms are not very bright, and the brown draperies, etc don't help. Parking can be a problem. As we have a handicapped sticker, we were allowed to park in that spot indefinitely.

Room Tip: Be aware when you are booking that you know which room you are getting. We stayed at 410 facing the...

Easy to find as it's on the famous square, the hotel had English-speaking staff and a friendly atmosphere. Our room was on the small side with a view of the shoe shop opposite, but that didn't bother us. The facilities were great, clean and the bed really comfy - slept better than at home! No noise from outside either, though some of the other guests weren't exactly quiet in the early hours during one night. A bonus was the TV's ability to get BBC 1 and 2 plus the world news channel.
The location couldn't be better: a short walk from the bus stop to the TGV station and an even shorter one to the main attractions of Avignon, plus of course the square itself right outside and many shops and restaurants very close by. The hotel's own restaurant was unfortunately closed for refurbishment. Breakfasts were excellent: advertised as "American style buffet" they had just about everything you could think of and even an organic range.
I would definitely go there again.

Room Tip: if you want a good-sized room or a view of the square, try asking. We didn't mind so didn't...

Hotel is situation in very central location. Staff were not overly friendly but not rude either. There is a lift which was useful as no one offered to help with bags etc. Our room was very nice and spacious but located over the square which became a little nooses in the evening. Easy to walk to all the attractions and plenty of food choices. We did a half day tour to Orange Roman Theatre, very interesting, and Winery which was worth while as saw lovely scenery. Nothing really wrong with the hotel just not a welcoming feeling.

Room Tip: Perhaps a quiet room not over the square.

Our stay here started with a very warm welcome. We instantly felt that we would be taken care of and we were. Any question we asked was immediately answered in a very friendly and helpful way. The staff gave us recommendations on where to eat and helped us with where to park (parking is a challenge in the city, but with clear directions to get to the underground parking (under the Palais), we were fine). The room was cozy (in a good way). We were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and we were welcomed with a special note and bottle of champagne when we arrived. We would definitely stay here again!
