“Relatively expensive for what you get”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

Well, I agree with most reviews made about the hotel: the images of the hotel you find on most booking sites are overly positive. Rooms are quite narrow, and the mattress we had in our room was more like a hammock. Furniture is also quite simple and limited. Cleaniness is acceptable - not more, not less. The hotel is quite a distance from the city center, so if you like sight-seeing, you should probably take that into account. Anyhow, there was also a good side about the stay: staff is quite nice, parking is free.
Concerning money-for-value (overall): Avignon seems to be an expensive place, so maybe it is a little unfair to say that the money-for-value received was relatively low, but that was my impression.

When booking this hotel for our trip to the south of France, we were fooled by the nice images we saw on the internet. From the pictures on the hotel website, you get the impression that this hotel is in a nice old neighborhood. This is not at all the case.

The hotel is set in a very commercial area, 5km outside of Avignon and right beside the hotel is a massive American-style Oriental buffet restaurant. It's surrounded by a massive movie theatre, a whole bunch of very non-French restaurants, and very ugly-looking apartment buildings.

We did not eat breakfast at the hotel. Instead we drove into the centre of Avignon and ate at a bakery.

I can't say that there was anything particularly WRONG with the room, as we didn't expect much for the price, but there was absolutely no charm to the neighborhood, the hotel, nor the room.

I would not recommend this hotel.

The motel is set near some major shopping areas about 5 minutes drive from the center of the city. The enclose secure parking is a plus. Check in was a breeze, and the staff spoke enough English so that I did not have to butcher the French language. The room was small but adequate as I was flying solo and only staying one night. A much longer stay may not be too comfortable here. The value was great relative to it's neighbors prices too.

Overall - this property is not worth the money at all. It is good for one night, but that is all I can say. Beds were surprisingly good for this kind of Hotel. Nevertheless, there were Spider webs in the corners and under the table. Dust on the wooden cover of the lamps. The old guy with behind the reception was able to speak English quite well, but his sense of humour was truly strange. This "weirdo" scared us a little. And what more, he heard our private call. And the possibility of breakfast for 9 EUR??? No, thank you...

Negatives: very tiny and worn rooms, breakfast for extra fee
Positives: secure parking area, free internet, friendly staff
Overall, it was quite an expensive place considering the quality. We wouldn't stay there again.

Pleasant, friendly service and with a real feel of Provence.
Good free parking but you will need to drive into the old town, it is too far to walk.
There are good eating places close by.
The room we had for 3 was very small and too hot in August. The air con was not adequate.
Good to have small kitchenette and outside courtyard.
It was cheap and good value for money but would not recommend during the hottest time of the year.

We stayed there for 1 night during the Avignon festival. The receptionist was very helpful and suggested to take the bus (the bus stop is just in front of the hotel) instead of the motorbike to spend the night at Avignon as she said it was safer, which actually proved to be an excellent tip and the cheapest option considering the parking fees. The room was not so bad and the breakfast was good.
