This is a lovely place, clean, safe, intimate. It's located within easy walking distance of the train station and the many interesting shops and restaurants inside the walls of Avignon. Check-in was quick and pleasant, my room was small but well maintained with a good bed, clean bathroom and a view of the terrace at the back of the hotel and the rooftops beyond. I was a little concerned getting back to the hotel late-ish one night but the main streets were full of people enjoying the evening. The only other people walking on the narrow side street where the hotel is located were a father and his little girl - it seemed quite safe.
The hotel has clearly been decorated with a great deal of taste and attention to detail - the colours, the posters, the fixtures - everything has been chosen carefully. There was a tiny edge of impatience from Annie (the woman in charge) but I'm sure the endless string of questions from tourists must eventually wear. But mostly she was extremely gracious. She served a lovely breakfast of bread, croissants, frittata, lots of good coffee and then a dessert! all beautifully presented - more than I needed or could finish. Patrice was also very sweet and kind, even sending me home with some dried lavender. Both speak enough English and are wonderful sources of information about the city. This isn't like a Holiday Inn or a Delta. It isn't chrome-shiny and it's much more personal and intimate than that. And elegant, in a gently worn way.
