Very nice Boutique Hotel in Avignon, inside the old city walls.
For site seeing in Avignon, it is pefectly located - it sits in the center of Avignon, over looking the tree-lined main square, Place de L'Horloge, very near the Palais de Pape, and a very short walk to Pont d'Avignon. Many restaurants and shops are within mere feet to a short walk from the hotel entrance.
For site seeing in the region: Very well situatd. Avignon served as our base from which driver took us to various sites in Provence and the Luberon Valley - e.g., Fountain de Vaucluse, L'isle sur La Sorgue, Gordes (where we shopped the Wednesday market in the square), Roussillon, Bonnieux (with lunch there and wonderful views over the valley and towns like Lacoste), Aix-en-Provence, Saint-Paul-de-Mausole - incl the psychiatric asylum in nearby Saint-Rémy-de-Provence where Vincent van Gogh painted the The Olive Trees, Les-Baux-de-Provence (fortress town set atop a rocky outcrop, and other sites. All above can be don in a day if desired.
The People: The staff were young, very friendly, and great to us. As in each hotel on our annual anniversary trips, I arranged for roses and champagne on arrival - which they did just as requested. They provided us as well with tips on sites and restaurants in Avignon. All positive here.
The Room: Nice corner room on second floor with great view out windows of the tree-lined main square, Place de L'Horloge, and the town. Clean, modern, ell apointed. Not lux / posh - but vey nice value at this price point fo a lovely room.
All in all, very recommended.
