“Beautiful and central hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We stayed here for the new year and there was a Christmas market right outside the hotel and we also had a beautiful view of this market. The hotel is bang in the centre and perfect for our stay in Avignon. The hotel staff were all very warm and friendly. The room was a superior one, a bit on the expensive side but honestly well worth it. The room was clean and warm and had really great toiletries. I would definitely recommend. We did not eat here.

We thoroughly enjoyed every second of our stay at this wonderful old, yet modernized hotel! Everything from the amenities to the most helpful service was impeccable! Location was perfect...and our spacious corner room overlooked the main square as well as the Palais du Papes. The desk clerks recommended the perfect restaurants in the area - all within walking distance. Our four night stay there was not long enough...we will return...hopefully very soon!

Room Tip: Our corner room was perfect for late October!

I was in Avignon for 2 nights in December with my sister and a friend. We had two rooms and really enjoyed the hotel. It is quaint, comfortable and in an excellent location. The breakfast room is very nice, the breakfast was excellent and the wait staff very nice. I am a travel agent and would definitely recommend this hotel to clients who wanted to be in the center of town. We went for the Christmas market so it was ideal.

Just like the other reviews are stating, this hotel is well-located (in the main square near the Palais des Papes) and has unique designed rooms -- cozy and comfortable rooms to spend more than one night.

If you have the opportunity to stay there, I would definitely recommend it (we changed our mind about an Ibis hotel outside city's walls in the last minute).

Pros:
- Comfortable design rooms
- Helpful staff
- Fantastic location

Cons:
- Parking lot is a little far away and you have to take your bags off first to avoid carrying it through the main square.

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!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

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.
