“Needed: plaster and a good cleaning”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012 via mobile

The staff here has been helpful and is always smiling and the location is terrific but the walls have holes and scrapes and the whole place needs a good scrubbing; not worth the cost, you can find better deals all around both in the old city and outside the city walls. The one window in my room has only partial and see-through curtains so anyone can see in. I had booked for three nights, shortened my stay and changed hotels.

The one good thing about this hotel - it's very close to the train station (not TGV) which makes it convenient to visit Arles, Nimes & Orange as well as Pont du Gard.

The service was a little lacking and the hotel has definitely seen its better days. Heaven help you if you have loud neighbors.

All that said, if you're used to staying in hostels this will not be much different than some of the older hostels in europe.

+ The hotel is located right beside the Office du Tourisme and convenient for going around Avignon intramuros.
Okay hotel if you're the adventurous kind I guess.

- Though the courtyard looks nice from the outside, the hotel is old and really needs renovation. There are no lifts and we didn't realize that we booked a room with shared bathroom. There was only one bath and two toilets to be shared with everyone and if you're not lucky, those are found on another floor. The room was old and the heater was rusty. There was a fan for the summer. The prices at all do not justify the quality. It costs almost the same as the hotel nearby where we transferred. Go to Hotel Bristol instead. The owner also made us pay some penalty for cancelling and they were debating on how much!

As the name suggests, this hotel is right in the centre of Avignon. It was the cheapest hotel we found in the centre of town so we were expecting it to he quite basic. It was. The room was very small and pretty dusty. We booked a shared bathroom but regretted it. There was only one shower and one toilet for all the rooms. We often had long waits to use them. Also they were quite dirty and down two floors from our room. The staff were very nice though and let me use a bathroom in another free room. There was a sink and a fan in the room.
