Situated half way between the Popes' Palace and the Old Avignon Bridge (both of which are a couple of minutes away), this is probably Avignon's best located hotel. If you don't have heavy luggage, and coming to Avignon by train, you can just get the bus (we took route 5) and stop at Porte de l'Oulle, which is only 5 minutes on foot - otherwise a taxi from the centra train station (Gare D'Avignon Centre) will cost about 10 Euro.
The standard rooms are modestly sized, but without having a cramped feeling. Bathrooms are nice, with a proper bath, and perfectly working amenities. The hotel is spotless and the maids do an excellent job on cleaning your rooms, as well as being trustworthy - on one occasion I left behind my phone and some money in the room and everything was exactly where I left it. Excellent wi-fi connectiom, free to guests (although the registration can be a bit awkward). Breakfast is simple, mainly focused on local specialities and products - the only hot food available are scrambled eggs and sausage, but there is a good selection of fruit, bread, cereals - the works.
In February, we paid just 50 Euro each per night for all of this, so all in all we got an excellent deal, but the official rack rates, especially for summer seem to be very expensive. Make sure to check their website for special offers and if possible go on low season - you will have the town for yourself (and the locals of course) without any other tourists!
