We stayed at the Hotel d'Europe for two nights on our honeymoon and had a wonderful time. When we first checked in, they told us we had been upgraded to the next level room. The room was beautiful and large, with a separate toilet room, large closet and large queen size bed. The bathroom was also large with lovely marble floors and a huge bath tub. The best part was, we had a small balcony outside.
After our first night sleep, we realized that the air conditioning was not working. We went down to the reception and the woman came up to see what the trouble was. She called the repair man and it turned out that he had gone home for the day. She went back downstairs for a moment and quickly called up to tell us she had moved us into another, even larger room. The rate we paid was 169Eu for both nights and we stayed in a room that cost 450EU. She did not hesitate to move us and she even helped us carry our bags which was well above the call of duty. The second room, at 450EU, was amazing. Huge king size bed, tall 15 foot ceilings and a lovely bathroom with bathrobes and slippers. They also provided some lovely hand cream with lavender that was spectacular. Pictures are attached of that room.
This hotel is in a great location and it is easy to walk from here to the Papal Palace or many of the shops around town. When you arrive, your ring the bell and the bellman comes out to take your luggage and you can valet your car (a great option at 15 EU a day!). They also offer a computer with free internet access or you can hook up your wi-fi if you prefer.
The hotel is also well positioned to get right on the road (outside the city walls) to get out of town and head to places like Chateauneuf de Pape which is a mere 20 minutes away and well worth the visit if you are a wine lover. Just a superb location and a great hotel with warm and friendly staff. We would highly recommend this place to anyone heading to Avignon!
