“A Delightful Hotel in Central Orange”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2012

Emmanuelle and Stephane are hoteliers extraordinaire. In 2009 we stayed in their small charming hotel in Tarascon on our first cycling tour of France. We were delighted to meet them again in Oct. 2011 when we arrived on our bicycles at Hotel Lou Cigaloun and discovered that they had changed venues and were now the proprietors of this larger hotel. They are remodeling the hotel bit by bit, and the parts that are finished are lovely. Delightful sitting areas are situated both indoors and out, and the breakfast room is bright and cheerful. The hotel is very well located in the old part of the city, near shops and restaurants, and just a short walk from the major attraction in Orange, the ancient Roman theatre. Don't miss touring this theatre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the English language audio guide adds immeasurably to the experience.

Our comfortable room, number 2, was large, with two good-sized windows looking out on a quiet street. The tiled bathroom was positively luxurious, with two sinks and a bathtub, as well as a modern shower. The buffet breakfast was excellent, with fresh fruit salad, cheeses and a different cake each day, along with croissants and baguettes. The coffee machine grinds the beans freshly for each cup and produced perfect café au lait.

Emmanuelle speaks fluent English and was a fount of information, providing us with tickets for the theatre and museum, suggesting restaurants, and helping us sort out a small problem. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Orange, and would happily return to Hotel Lou Cigaloun

Thanks you so much for your comment.
We take this opportunity to thank all our customers who, after they left, take their time to write their criticism, often very positive.
Our first objective, of course, beyond the cleanliness and comfort of the facility is to provide our customers according to their expectations, all the information needed to make their stay as pleasant as possible: for example the addresses of good restaurants in the city of Orange based on their tastes and budget and the beautiful sights in and around Orange.
What we like in our business: contact, discussion, sharing with our customers ... we take, as necessary, the time of such exchanges.
Thank you to all our customers confidence in us.

Emmanuelle and Stephane

Orange is a nice little base to explore upper Provence from - and if you are visiting France to soak up Frenchiness this is a great place to do it! Hotel Lou Cigaloun is a beautiful mix of modern (wi-fi, brand-new bathrooms, AC) and antique (exposed beams, stone, stucco) that reflects the Roman heritage of the town. It is comfortable, clean, well-equipped and charming. Emmanuelle speaks English and is warm and welcoming, ready with recommendations for local sights and restaurants. We stay in Orange frequently and expect to be back again and again! Hotel Lou Cigaloun deserves its top Trip Advisor rating.

We stayed for 1 night only in November and it was great. Emmanuele is a very warm and welcoming host - we felt like guests in her home! The suite we stayed in was lovely with an extra sitting room and was decorated in a modern French chic style with a great bathroom. Everything was immaculately clean. The continental breakfast suited us fine and we were able to explore Orange on foot. It is worth booking the parking for the car as it was great to park the car and forget! We would have stayed longer if we had more time. Orange is a great base to explore from.

We happened upon this hotel by accident and we loved it. The hotel is in the process of remodeling all the rooms and the upgrades are wonderful. The owners are very helpful and they provide a nice continental breakfast for a good price. All of Orange is withing walking distance. Enjoy!

Very clean and nice little Hotel, in the Center of Orange. If you are with a car you need to book , the hotel has a small parking for 5 cars but usually there are some place.
Room is clean and Internet is good ( wireless Internet).
Breakfast is a little bit minimalist but not expensive. ( no proteins - eggs or ham).
I recommand this hotel for small budgets, the owner will give you nice tips for restaurants.

We stayed in 11 Provence hotels during our 2 week cycle trip in September 2011 and this was simply the best. The hotel is being upgrased. room, by room by the owner and it is a delight to stay there. In addition to very comfortable and bright bedrooms, there is a beautifully furnished louinge with books galore to refer to. The breakfasts are excellent. There was air conditioning in our room but the place is very quiet after 11 p.m. and we slept comfortable with the windows open. It's very central. The hosts are very welcoming and courteous people who speak very good English.

We stayed one night in Orange and were delighted to find the Cigaloun, based on previous reviews on TripAdvisor. We arrived without a reservation and were warmly greeted. It's a wonderful little hotel in a great location. Our room, #5, overlooked a side street, and was impeccably clean. Great bathroom that was newly updated. Extremely helpful owner/staff. Walkable to everything in town. Highly recommend.
