When booking this hotel for our trip to the south of France, we were fooled by the nice images we saw on the internet. From the pictures on the hotel website, you get the impression that this hotel is in a nice old neighborhood. This is not at all the case.
The hotel is set in a very commercial area, 5km outside of Avignon and right beside the hotel is a massive American-style Oriental buffet restaurant. It's surrounded by a massive movie theatre, a whole bunch of very non-French restaurants, and very ugly-looking apartment buildings.
We did not eat breakfast at the hotel. Instead we drove into the centre of Avignon and ate at a bakery.
I can't say that there was anything particularly WRONG with the room, as we didn't expect much for the price, but there was absolutely no charm to the neighborhood, the hotel, nor the room.
I would not recommend this hotel.
