“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night in June '11 as we made our way south from Paris to Nice. We should have stayed here longer. The room itself was beautiful, a Privilege-Terrrasse on the top floor with balcony overlooking the Place de l'Horloge. I've stayed in Avignon before and would recommend everyone visit it at least once; this hotel is perfect base for exploring it, walking distance to everything. I'm already looking for an opportunity to return.

This hotel is in an excellent location, being on the main square, and within short walking distance of avignon's major sights. I can imagine that in summer it could get noisy, but in winter there is no problem. The rooms are not huge, but clean and comfortable and well priced. There are stairs between the elevator and the rooms, so bear in mind if you have mobility issues. The staff were very helpful with all requests. All in all, a very good four star hotel!

My family and I stayed in two rooms for two nights each this hotel. The hotel was well managed, staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Despite the fact that we booked the rooms together and paid the same price, they were substantially different, however. One room was moderate sized with a long hallway leading to a large bathroom with a bathtub and hand shower. The other was small with a small bath with only a very small shower stall. So, be prepared for the fact that this is an old hotel and the rooms are not "cookie-cutter" as you find in most current US hotels.

The location of the hotel right on Place De L'Horloge was excellent. We spent two days thoroughly exploring the old city and historic areas and enjoyed our experience in Avignon tremendously. We had to park outside the wall and walk our suitcases into the hotel (not a great distance, but cobblestoned and uneven for most of the way). We chose not to take breakfast in the hotel (very expensive) because it was easily available in many local restaurants for one third the price and we enjoyed the adventure of finding a new place each morning.

One note: there were three small sets of stairs from the elevator to our room so this is not the best hotel choice for those with mobility issues.

October 2012, my wife and I stayed in Avignon an extra three days after finishing a tour, and booked a small suite in this hotel for its location and good reviews. It was late enough in the season that outside noise wasn't a problem, and we were within fast walking distance to everything. Good restaurants were very close. The room was comfortable and roomy, wifi worked well, and it had a good shower. Price of 158E/night was reasonable. The lobby was minimal, the desk staff was efficient and well-informed though not all that friendly, Breakfast in the hotel seemed pretty pricy since we didn't have the need to stuff ourselves, so we had breakfast in the bistro in front which was fast, good, and cheap. We can't imagine what a zoo it might be around this hotel when the summer festival is in full swing.

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.
