We stayed for 4 nights in a 2-room, suite, # 324. Albeit small, it was very functional and had recently been upgraded. One room was set up to be the TV room, but could also serve as a sleeping room (pull out sofa). Since we stayed in June, during long daylight hours, the windows were equipped with automatic "blackout" shades. The rooms were air conditioned, a must during that time frame. Always enjoy having the capability to heat water for tea/coffee. The bathroom was quite modern. The staff were very friendly, professional and helpful. As I became ill during our travels, the front desk called and arranged for a English speaking doctor to visit me at the hotel. The hotel does have an elevator; however not all rooms are reachable by lift. We had to carry suitcases up to the third floor (or approx. 20 steps) after getting off lift on 2nd floor. Best to ask at time of booking if your "type" of room is reachable by lift. The hotel offered a computer for internet access as well as several sitting rooms to relax, read or enjoy a glass of wine. We found the hotel was in an ideal location for walking to many sites and restaurants within the old city. The hotel was within a 5" walking distance from the Palace du Papes car park, and offered a 20% discount toward parking fees. The breakfast room was very light and airy and offered an excellent array of food items. We would highly recommend staying at this hotel. As a matter of fact, my husband and I believe we will be back.
