My husband and I recently stayed at the Thames for our first visit to Provence. Our host, Phillipe, couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The suite was beautiful - well furnished and very clean. Our suite had access to the rooftop patio and a lovely table and chairs with a view of the Avignon city wall. The hotel is... More

The room was bigger than I expected, we had two double beds in two separate rooms which worked well with a separate bathroom. There was a very well equipped kitchenette that had everything we...

We stayed for two nights in a room here and loved it. Right next to Avignon Centre train station and thanks to a previous Trip Advisor review we knew that it was located inside the Grand Hotel. Meeting Phillipe in his office which is down the corridor to the left of the hotel's front desk, he gave us a very... More

Dear Steven, Thank you for your review ! Like George Clooney would say " What else ?

Thames Residence Hotel is the place to stay if you are in Avignon. We had an excellent time. The room has got to be the most convenient location if you are driving or taking the train.

There's a lot to like about this hotel, most notably its comfort and excellent location. It is located just two minutes from the Avignon Centre train station and across the street from one of the entrances to the old walled city. It does bear repeating, as other reviewers have noted, that the entrance to this hotel is INSIDE the Avignon... More

We have a good sized apartment with two beds, a sitting room area, and a sliding divider. The terrace is lovely and big but not a great view but provides an area for eating outside. Helpful manager gave us good advice when we were stranded by a train strike.
