“Very Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Very friendly, helpful and welcoming owners. It was a pleasure to return to the hotel, it felt like home. The building itself was very quaint with a spiral staircase. We had a room on the 3rd floor and it was very nice. The artwork however, was a bit unusual. Besides that the room was comfortable. A big plus was the inclusion of books in each room, including an English/French dictionary and how to learn French books. The cleaning staff were the most efficient and thorough we have ever encountered.

My husband and I stayed at Le Colbert in September and had a lovely stay. The location is terrific, the rooms warm and inviting and the hosts friendly and helpful. The hotel is located on a pedestrian only street so it was calm and quiet. We only stayed one night, but definitely plan to return on a future visit. Owners Patrice and Annie helped us find a restaurant (we are foodies) and find a sports store where we could purchase a soccer, or "futbol" jersey for our son. Annie's breakfast was the best we've had in our 20 years of traveling in Europe, and Annie even shared her recipe for an egg omelette type dish that was delicious. We loved the personal touch and hope to be back very soon! Great value!

We traveled to southern France this past August (2012) and the weather was delightful. My wife located this hotel based upon others reviews on Trip Advisor and because of its location. We only spent one night there but would return. There is not downside to the hotel, but locating it is somewhat fun, or not. Even my GPS had problems in the beautiful narrow streets.

We stay at the hotel in September 2011. It feels like we stayed at the different hotel then majority of the reviewers. The OK: the room size was ok for the price; the location is ok for the price. That t’s about it – just ok, if it was a few dollars more I would feel overpaying.
The bad: we had to be in the hotel by 8 p.m. (or 9 p.m., don’t remember exactly) by the hotel policy and we arrived before 7 p.m.. To say at least we did not feel welcome:
nobody explained where to park the car, nobody offered to help with the luggage as there is steep stairs and no lift (we would gladly pay for that). We’ve been told that the highly praised breakfast is not available for us next morning as we arrived too late?; the mattress in the room was covered with the very strange vinyl cover – so I can’t even describe the feeling when you are sleeping on vinyl, lets just say its far from comfortable! The next day we ask for that breakfast early and were confirmed for the following day. Unless all other reviewers never ate a good breakfast, or simply we did not get what everybody else got, but I would rate the breakfast as simply terrible, both in quality and quantity - 2 small teaspoons of what seemed like humus, two cherry tomatoes, two small and cold pancakes, terrible coffee, and its not for each person, its for two! (maybe I am missing something, but you gat the idea.
Overall – absolutely not recommend!

Hotel Le Colbert is located in the heart of old Avignng, that s, inside the city walls an is walkng distance to all of the min attractions as well as beng just next door to the tourist office.

The rooms had all been freshly renovated (as at October 2012) and we were really stunned that this hotel was only rated 2 stars. I would have given it a "high" three.

Rooms were newly painted and carpeted, with air-conditioning and complementary wifi. The beds were also new and firm...not sinking in the middle as you sometimes find.

The bathroom was clean but basic and perhaps this is why the hotel is rated 2 stars.

We didn't eat at the hotel because there are 100s restaurants / patisseries within a 20 min walk of the location.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel and would certainly stay there again if I was ever in Avignon.

Hotel Le Colbert is a real gem. It is pefectly located in a central part of old Avignon and fronts onto a quiet side street. The owners, Patrice and Annie, were very friendly and helpful. The room was small but comfortable, and included air conditioning. The bathroom was also small and the shower nozzle was handheld, but it was all reasonabe for such a well-priced hotel. The rooms were well-maintained and clean. Annie's breakfast is famous and is much fancier than standard continental style; it is expensive, so we followed the advice of others on this site and ordered the breakfast for our first day only. The local railway station is a few minutes walk away, and the major train station for long journeys is connected by a regular bus that terminates very close to the hotel. Avignon is a lovely city and this hotel helped make our stay so enjoyable.

I was a solo woman traveller. I got a small room on the first floor (close to the owner's room). The room was clean, cute, and perfect! I love the decor of the entire hotel. The owners were really helpful & pleasant. Tripadvisor did not disappoint me at all!

The hotel is close to the train station than Avignon center itself but it's still walking distance to all. It probably takes 5 min to get to the train station and bus station and about 10-15 min to walk/ stroll to Avignon center. I had a day trip out of avignon everyday. so, this hotel is really perfect! I can easily walk to restaurants in the evening
