Stayed here with an escorted bus tour. The lobby belied our room. It was hard to rate this because it was very, very roomy, so excellent in that category, but it was worn and old and kind of dark and dingy, so average on that level. It seems like maybe the room used to be an apartment. Our room was spacious: Living room with couch, table, chairs and closet. Separate bedroom with good bed, separate area with sink, separate area with tub, shower & toilet. Very nice balcony with table and 2 chairs, overlooking pretty gardens.
Sounds great, huh? But it seemed old and dated. I opened the closet and found a can of bug spray, which made me wonder. On our last day, (3 nights) I did find an ant on our bed. The walls were pretty banged up and the room needed painting.
Not good maid service. When we arrived, there was one plastic cup on the bathroom counter. One. We stayed there 3 nights and they never brought us another clean cup or added another one (2 people in the room). No kettle or tea,coffee in room. Water pressure good and water stayed hot.
The location was great, as other reviews have said. It was right across street from old walls, but on the opposite end of the walls where the famous bridge is located. Right next to train station, so that's convenient for some. If we visited Avignon on our own, I would not stay here. Spacious yes, but it just seemed a tiny bit grungy to me, although I've been in much worse places.
