The Bristol Hotel is almost directly across the street from the main train station and it's right around the corner from the Avignon Poste bus stop (shuttles from the Avignon TGV station stop there).
The Bristol is a professionally run hotel, with helpful professional staff, an elevator, good sized rooms, and plenty of storage within the room. The room is equipped with a safe and a minibar.
The bathroom was a bit odd. There was a tub and shower. The water-saving showerhead resulted in showers that were little more than a trickle. And the shower curtain trailed far into the tub because it was too long. The hair dryer was one of those wall-attached types with a hose. No power and all the heat is lost in the hose. If you have long, thick hair, you may want to consider other arrangements.
We were on the 3rd floor facing the street. At off-times it was quiet, but during busy times we could hear a fair amount of traffic and street noise.
We passed on the breakfast offered by the hotel because we found it too expensive. There is a small cafe next door and we were able to grab a roll and coffee there for a very reasonable price. There is also a bakery and another cafe directly across from the hotel.
The staff were helpful and provided us with a city map and an orientation to the city when we asked at checkin.
