The location is wonderful- opposite Pope's Palace and at the beginning of the shopping streat with many open space eateries. The hotel is very old thus the rooms differ a lot. Superior Rooms are very spacious and furnished according the historical period of the hotel building, which is very nice.

We were here with a school tour from Australia (second time), and this place is just perfect! Close to parking but in the old city in a pedestrian area. Old building, some rooms are not elevator accessible, but the location immediately opposite the Palais des Papes and at the top end of the main shopping street make this a great... More

Hotel is just acroos the Palace of the Popes. Very ancient, itself like an old palace. Do not drive to the hotel. No parking there, very narrow pedestrian streets. Drive directly in the undergroung garage under the Place de la Palais des Papes. Plenty of spaces and walk up the stairs just in front of the hotel doors. Little bit... More

We were lucky enough to get Room #1, which is the one in their brochure--it overlooks the square and the Pope's palace. It was huge. Everything worked and the shower was one of the best on the trip (every hotel goes its own way on a shower in France). The restaurant and patio were excellent. next door is a morning... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The location is the best in Avignon, the hotel staff, particularly Damian, the front desk manager, were extremely nice and helpful. Our room had a great view of the Palais des Papes, which is very special to wake up to every day. The rooms are fairly basic, but charming and comfortable.

Location is the best - but that's the only thing that is good! The rooms are bad and very small. It's very old and I think it renovated many years ago! Breakfast was ordinary - but there was some problems... I wrote to the hotel 2 days earlier and told them that I had some food allergi - they hadn't... More

The major positive of this hotel is its location . It is right on the corner of the square and probably the closest of all to the magnificent Palais des Papes . Rooms were however disappointing .

This hotel restaurant is outstanding! Located right at the Palace square it has great out door seat as well as ample indoor seating. Menu is great and their sauces and onion soup is tremendous. Prices are moderate service is excellent but gets very busy at 7:00 when they open. They do take reservations

Bedroom stone pavement floors are broom clean, but actually filthy because they have not been washed properly with water. Bedroom decorative throw pillows and bedspreads are of dubious cleanliness. Breakfast buffet featured a spiral display of rotten banana and wrinkled with age apples, the hot plates labeled hot coffee and hot milk were full of cold beverage, there were cockroaches... More

Very quaint Hotel in the heart of Avignon, narrow stone stairs giving a wonderful medieval atmosphere. The double room was large and airy with two windows and air conditioning. Whilst the bathroom was basic there was a large bath and lots of hot water. The dining room was also quaint with exposed beams and again a medieval feel. The breakfast... More
