Fantastic location, very friendly staff, recently refurbished rooms, great bathrooms, very comfy bed, tea & coffee making facilities.Very near to main train station and only a short walk to Pope's Palace.Lovely inner courtyard.

Room Tip: rooms at back are quieter or overlooking central courtyard

This whole internet booking thing can be a bit hit and miss! Well this little find was a hit! The Hotel Central is just that - central. I got off the Eurostar from London (the direct train that runs in the summer months) and walked about 7 minutes straight from the station; there is a very unprepossessing entrance to this lovely little hotel. The Hotel Central is on a main shopping street, but the narrow little entrance opens up into a lovely courtyard from which the entrance to the hotel opens and which the rooms over look. The staff were very helpful and courteous. The stairs are very steep - my room would be on the top floor! - but it is a minor inconvenience given how lovely the room was. It felt quite 'boutique' - simple and classy decoration, large modern bathroom and a shuttered window overlooking that courtyard. Breakfast was an option but well worth the money and you chose to eat either in the courtyard or in the small dining room. Maybe most important is the Hotel Central is also central for the centre of Avignon itself. Another few minutes on the same street and you're at place de horologe and, few minutes again, right at the foot of the Palais des Papes. Don't miss the art gallery - a stunning collection rather understated! There are plenty of places to eat and never a disappointment (if you stay away from place de horologe). I would never go passed this little gem again!

A delightful hotel with courtyard tucked just off the main blvd (rue republique). The staff was very helpful, given we were traveling with our 2-yr old son. The room was spacious - perhaps newly remodeled? Everything was clean. The location is great - near Office de tourisme and near the train station. Would stay there again & the price was very reasonable.

We booked here at a great rate and so we were wonderfully surprised at how lovely it was!! Just recently redecorated in very calm and soft greys and whites, lovely distressed armoire and one of the largest showers in a hotel in France we have ever seen!!

Room was airconditioned, immaculate, bkfst room charming, nice sized elevator, right on the main street through Avignon ... lovely staff..... PERFECT~~~~ this is the best place to stay in Avignon... near local eateries, easy walk to "tourist" attractions...

Don't miss it!
