“Affordable Decent Lodging”
Reviewed December 16, 2011

We stayed here for 2 days. To get the hotel after coming out from the TGV Avignon station, turn left on exit from the station towards bus station, walk down the slope and Navette bus is waiting only 50m from the exit. Pay 1.2 euros fare and bus will stop outside Post Office within the city walls.On returning to AGV Avignon, go to same venue. Once you alight from the bus, turn around and walk towards Cours Jean Jaures. Follow this road and continue up rue de la Republique (approx 800m). Along the way, stop by the Tourisme Office, near the MacDonald's outlet, to collect your maps and brochures. At the Place de L'Horloge, turn left and walk down rue St Agricol (approx 200m) until you reach rue Joseph Vernet. Turn right and hotel is 50m down the road.
Owner stays onsite and is most helpful with his knowledge about the area.He is always there whenever we return to hotel and ready to help when needed. Room is quiet, nice and warm. The only setback is the small bathroom but we managed. Wifi is good and easily accessible. Breakfast can be arranged with owner. Hotel is near the places of interest. We will come back and stay when we return to Avignon in future.

Spend 5 nights in November at the Hotel Mignon. This hotel is what they advertise. No elevator so prepare for steps; very clean; affordable prices and central. You can walk everywhere including the central train station and the bus from from the TGV.

The hotel owner could not be more helpful and is eager to help. There is a great restaurant nearby L' Essential. Her food is excellent and the serve is first class.

If you want the Ritz, go elsewhere. If you want a clean, central hotel at a good price, stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for a lower floor, if you have issues with steps. Also, the back is quieter but I preferred the...

The hotel is in a great location for seeing the sights of Avignon. We parked the car in the underground lot at the Palace of the Popes. It is an easy walk even with luggage to the hotel and a discount is available through the hotel for the parking fee. The hotel itself is a little dated even by European standards but very clean. The staff was VERY friendly and helpful. The value for the price paid was outstanding and we will definitely stay there again.

We stayed one night here and found it to be a charming hotel with character and an ideal location for Avignon. It is very central, on a pretty street (above the expensive shops) with only a 2-3 min walk to the Place de l’Horloge and just inside the city walls, so that free parking is also within easy reach. The building is old and attractive and our room on the second floor facing the street had exposed original stone work, pillar and wooden beams with a plaque on the building’s history. The room furnishings were of an antique style but full of charm and in keeping with the hotel’s character. The double bed was large and there was enough room around it for our bags and a case and allowing for a bit of spreading out. The pillow was a French-style roll rather than the more usual individual square but very comfortable all the same. The bathroom was very compact, akin to a fitted wardrobe both in size and proximity to the bed, and there was only a sliding wooden (and fairly loose) door between it and the bedroom but it was decently fitted out and certainly suited our needs. The owner, who we met on reception for checking in and out, was very welcoming and helpful. The hotel also offered free wifi and with its good value room rate, it’s somewhere that I would be happy to re-visit.

This small hotel in Avignon is superbly located to see the major sites. The rooms -- especially the bathrooms -- are a tight squeeze but are clean and well-maintained. Service and hospitality are outstanding. Breakfast was good and included in our rate. We'd definitely stay here again.

Just back from five days in Avignon at Mignon, and very happy with the hotel - recommend it highly to those on a budget. The people who run it couldn't have been more friendly and helpful; location is excellent (on a posh shopping street and a few minutes from Place d'horloge); and the morning coffee & croissants is great. The room was spotless and quiet, high pressure hot water, comfy firm bed (though sharing a long thin pillow isn't so good). If only all hotels were this friendly.

The hotel was very tiny and old, but then again so was everything in Avignon! It did not bother us one bit because it added to the Avignon experience. You will definitely not find American style hotels there, so size and/or modernity should not be a factor when planning your stay in the Provence.
The room was super tiny, but clean and practical. The hotel was super cute and the breakfast absolutely delicious. There is free wifi and a computer that is also free of charge.
There is no elevator so try to pack light.
Serge, the hotel own, was absolutely wonderful! He spoke really good English, was very friendly and eager to help with anything.
The location was also wonderful... just a small walk to the city centre and main street, as well as the Palace of the Popes. Restaurants and shops close by.
I loved this hotel and would definitely recommend it!
