The building is centuries old, and is literally a stone's throw from the Palais des Papes. The decor of the rooms are very old fashioned, but charming in their own way. The bathrooms are very large, with a separate shower stall. Large twin sinks. All the hardware seems to be old British... The light switches have dimming functions, and it took me a little while to figure them out.
The TV is framed so that it looks like an old-fashioned mirror when it's turned off. The phone is cordless, and wifi is available.
Breakfast is pretty good. Lunch at the restaurant is pretty reasonable, too. One can take tea in the afternoon either in the interior or outdoor courtyard. Very nice atmosphere.
Hotel concierge is very helpful and can point you to the right restaurant or shops.
Only downside is hauling luggage yourself... the rooms are arranged around the interior courtyard, but the four sides are not on the same level... it kinda spirals upward. Getting around is a little annoying.
