“Great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

This hotel is in a fantastic location, off the main road and surrounded by restaurants and close to city sights and Palais des Papes. the rooms are quite spacious by French standards, clean and well kept. The shower was terrible with barely any water pressure. They also turn the air conditioning off at night for about 8hours so its very hot at night. The staff were very unfriendly and unhelpful which was disappointing. The breakfast is really overpriced and there's lots of other options for breakfast in the surrounding square.

The hotel is very nice, but you do pay for the location. By accident we found that parking on the street in a green zone (parking pay ant) is free from 7 pm to 9 am; if you park in the parking garage it is much more expensive. We did not have a problem with that. The area inside the city walls is best discovered by walking. The hotel staff is very helpful in both French and English.

Our room 112 is right above the reception area. It was quiet, until the city workers collected trash in the morning. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. The room is small, but I have stayed in many French hotel rooms that are much smaller. The bathroom was very clean and nice, with good amenities, although the shower drain didn't work as well as it should have (which I reported on checkout).

The location is super as you can walk easily to many great sights and restaurants.

Room Tip: Better sleeping rooms do not front the square or street the cars drive on.

Staff on reception was unfriendly and not very helpful. They misinformed us about room availability and room rates. The receptionist was more interested in texting on his mobile than talking to clients. Poor service.

We had an excellent stay here!
My only negative thing to say about this room was the noise. We were staying facing one of the roads (not the main square). We found it very noisy even with the windows closed.
This is the only negative thing to say however. Our room was extremely clean. Bed very comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic with a lot to choose from (although the coffee wasn't particularly good). Overall the hotel had a great atmosphere.
We also found the staff very helpful. We asked for advice on where to go to do our laundry and the place we ended up in was great (and cheap).
I would stay here again and recommend anyone else to as well. We loved Avignon as a whole and only wish we had spent more time in this beautiful city.
P.S. The restaurant downstairs from the hotel in the square was a great spot!

I loved this hotel! It was right in the center of the town, restaurants in the square right out front of the hotel, and the palais des papes was a five minute walk from it. The bed was large and VERY comfortable and plush. The toiletries in the bathroom were really nice quality too:) As a side note, the wines that they have for purchase at the hotel are Delicious, they have a great Rose.

Overall, GREAT location, LARGE room, GREAT bed, very clean. We would stay here again.

Stayed as part of a group with Great Rail Journeys. This hotel is ideally situated in the center of the old city of Avignon close to the main sites and restaurants. Lovely breakfast room with good range of food including fresh fruit and ample tea and coffee. Does not offer lunch or evening meals. Our room was spacious and the air conditioning kept it cool despite being almost 40C outside. Only complaint was that there was a lack of storage space with single tiny wardrobe and the shower was too small with a curtain that stuck to you. Rooms overlooking the square can be noisy if the bar below is opening late at the weekend. Would use again.

Room Tip: Request higher floor not overlooking the square in case the bar below has a late licence at the week...

Don't stay here. We spent 2 sweltering nights in this hotel and never slept a wink. Avignon is very warm and the air conditioning was insufficient to provide any cooling of the room. We asked for a fan and was told they were all out. The room was small and had creepy carpeting. The bathroom had a cheap, dark linoleum floor. The breakfast was great as was the location, but these benefits were quickly forgotten when we stepped into the room. 2 gentleman at the desk during the day hours were very polite, but the female desk clerk in the evening seemed to want to argue with everyone. Keep looking!
