This hotel is located true to its description,in the very centre of the historic city.The cramped site necessarily results in small rooms,but they were well fitted out and the bed was good.Noise from the square ( during the annual festival) was adequately blocked by the window,which had an excellent sun blind.The air conditioning could just cope with the 35-38 degree...

It can't be a more centrally located hotel! We stayed at the top floor in the privilege room and had access to the rooftop terrace with fantastic view of Palais des Papel. The room was well appointed with comfortable beds and sufficient space. Toiletries such as shower gel, lotion etc are provided so if you are not too fussy what... More

We stayed for one night during the festival. Good hotel in the centre of Avignon with parking nearby. Rooms slightly dated and could do with refreshing (particularly considering the price), but very convenient location and friendly staff. Would consider staying again.

I would recommend this hotel due to its location almost in the heart of the old city of Avignon. The service from reception was great and nothing was too much trouble. The room was comfortable, the bathroom clean and the shower great for big blokes. The breakfast area was also very good with a wide selection. Restaurants were just outside... More

Location perfect, rooms clean....would have been 4 star due to barely adequate air con but Naomi at front desk flipped us to 5 stars....she was extremely attentive and helpful to make our stay perfect for our anniversary.

There is probably no better location than this, right next to the Palais de Papes, and the view from the front rooms (of the main square and the theatre) are great, particularly at night when the buildings are illluminated. It can be a little noisy, however, so if you need a really quiet room, just request a room at the... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night. It was satisfactory. It was a bit dated but the staff were helpful, the room was clean and it is in a good location. We did not have breakfast at the hotel but the buffet was very beautiful. The location was in walking distance from all of the major sites.

Great location. Wonderful and helpful staff. They recommended restaurants for dinner, and where we went was spectacular: L'Essentiel. The room was small but very adequate and clean. I would stay there again for sure.
