We chose this hotel in Avignon at the last minute because of a change in plans and as it was just for one night it was't the end of the world but it is unlikely we will stay here again when we return.
I specifically asked for a quiet room, if possible and the young lady looked to her manager who said the room she gave was sufficient. She looked at us with our backpacks and maybe assumed we didn't have money because we came to France to have a carless vacation walking the GR trails. The room itself was OK, large enough and clean but it was on an alley leading to the Palais which has non stop foot traffic. It was very noisy most of the night and has a row of huge bright lights right outside the room that lit the square....and the room all night. The room had shutters but if you close them you suffocate.
The girl at the front desk was multilingual and very helpful but when I asked for quiet she should have offered us a different room, even if it would be more expensive.....and we didn't have the cheapest room.
Overall, not the best value in Avignon.
