“Good room but not cheap”
Reviewed July 17, 2012 via mobile

We stayed as a mature couple in an executive room at the Novotel Avignon Centre for 7 nights from 7th July 2012. The hotel was conveniently situated a short distance from the railway station where the direct Eurostar service arrives. Reception was quick and pleasant and the room was comfortable and well serviced. There is no drawer storage in the rooms but we managed to find a home for all that we had brought with us. The slippers and dressing gowns were appreciated but the Nespreso machine didn't get a lot of use as the only cups provided were paper. The safe was big enough to take all our gadgets etc.
The breakfast was not a good advertisement for the hotel kitchen with the hot selection left too long in the warming trays. The remainder of the choice was rather limited for the €15 per head charged and the staffing was erratic with a number of apparently untrained individuals who seemed unable to take initiatives. There was rather erratic monitoring of who took breakfast although the systems were occasionally in operation.
The pool is rather small and without any obvious means of entry and exit so our swimming costumes remained unused.
We were happy with the air conditioning as the outside temperature was 30 degrees plus.
On balance it is a comfortable hotel but rather expensive for the size of the rooms.

From a price perspective and also location, we were very happy that we selected this property. We did have an issue with the air conditioning (wasn't working in our standard room) and they moved us immediately to a spacious suite. It was rather odd that the balconies didn't have any furniture however and the room itself, although spacious, was almost "sparse" in the furnishings. However, the coffee maker was wonderful, the staff friendly and it was within walking distance of the major restaurant/shopping area. Parking was also very convenient and easy.

The property is in a nice location and close to the train station. The room was stylish, modern, larger size, and had nice amenities except the carpet was extremely dirty, which made the whole room feel dirty. The bedding is white with crisp linens. At 4:00 am there was a leak in the air conditioning unit which made water from the ceiling come pouring down onto the floor. When I called the front desk, they informed me that there was nothing they could do so we put a bucket under the leak. There are complimentary beverages in the mini-fridge, which was a nice addition. My husband ordered room service and the food was delivered promptly. Would I stay there again? I might look for an alternative.

We stayed in the hotel with our daughter in June. The choice was based on being very close to the centre of the town (so we could park the car and walk everywhere), the hotel had a swimming pool and the bedroom was clean with new hopefully firm beds.

This hotel met all those expectations. I am still impressed by the consistency in hotel standards across the Novotel group, having stayed in other properties in the past.

The sound proofing on the windows is excellant, the staff friendly and helpful. The bathrooms are fun with the glass that can switch between clear and opaque - when clear it really makes the room appear more spacious. In saying that the room is spacious and well design to maximise that space.

I think someone commented before the only oversight appears to be that there is no easy way in or out of the pool ( ie steps or a ladder). The hotel needs to fix this immediately, as I consider it a health and safety issue - to have to try to pull myself out of a deep enough pool, with sheer sides and flat surround - not graceful and not definately safe - or maybe they are sending a message - only the young and fit may swim! This needs to be fixed by the simple insertion of a ladder before an accident happens to someone.

I stayed at this hotel in mid of June.
The hotel location is super. We won't drive and we take a bus when we arrived at the avignon station. It take us 5-8 min from the avignon station to the bus terminal and its only 2 min walk from the bus terminal to the hotel. The hotel is super new, clean and stylish. The receptionist is friendly and we have a easy check in. The room is spacious and the bed is comfortable. Very quiet. And its just outside the walled city and you can go anywhere without difficulties. The other good thing is its close to the avignon station (there are two avignon stations and the one near the hotel is the station where you can take the train to arler, orange, etc). You can definitely stationed in this hotel and make a day trip to the nearby city.
I didn't try the breakfast and cannot comment on this.

LOCATION: Right opposite the walled city. Secure lower level car park at the hotel, EUR 10 per day.

HOTEL: Welcoming front desk staff provided fast check-in and check-out. New, clean room. Not noisy though located right by a busy street. Good beds and pillows. Quiet air-conditioner took time to reach desired temperature. Good shower.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Really well designed hotel room with nice features. Location is just outside the walled city and an easy walk to all parts of the city. Just along the road from the train station which was really convenient.
