First of all, I didn't book this room. Someone else had booked it for us, so I had absolutely no say in the choice of accommodation. We stayed here three nights and I dreaded every second.
Upon entering the room, we were greeted by a damp smell. The room was dirty and there was hair (not ours!!) on the bed. My roommate and I complained about the hair three times, and after each morning cleaning, there was still hair on the bed.
The beds were terrible and the mattresses were old and sagging. It left me with an aching back.
Furthermore, the hotel is in an unsafe part of Avignon. There is a bus just outside that you can take to the old part of the city, but on the way back, it passes through some really gritty parts of the city. I like travelling on public transport, but I felt very uncomfortable travelling in this area.
The only saving grace was the breakfast, which was surprisingly good.
The Vert Hotel scores very high on the icky factor. I would never recommend it.
