My family and I stayed at the Hotel des Augustins for a night in July 2012. We rented two rooms, one for my husband and me and one for our son. The hotel is in an excellent location. I recommend that if you are driving, park in one of the nearby public garages and carry your luggage to the hotel rather than trying to drive through the very, very crowded downtown area and park in front of the hotel (blocking all traffic) to unload. There is no dedicated parking for the hotel, so you will have to go to a parking garage anyway.
The lobby of the hotel is nice; the rooms not so nice. The rooms, at least the two we had, desperately needed renovation. They are extremely run down and grungy. The bathroom could use a good scrubbing, the tile grout was dirty and I didn't want to touch anything in there. There was a positively ancient wall mounted hair dryer which was useless; luckily I had my own. There was no shower curtain or door on the tub, which made taking a shower without flooding the bathroom a challenge.
It was very inconvenient to have to leave the key at the desk every time we left the hotel; I have not stayed at a hotel which required you to do this in many years.
Thanks to warnings from fellow Tripadvisor members, we skipped the breakfast here and found a cheaper and very nice breakfast at a cafe in town.
I would not stay here again.
