“Lots of space, a bit noisy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2010

Room on the first floor. Only two-star hotel with tons of space that included a little entryway. Clean rooms, good service, decent bed. No actual shower; just a tub with an extending nozzle/hose. Nice location.

The occupant above of and next to us very quite loud, walking around, talking and banging things into the wee hours of the morning.

Positives:
Great Central Location.
Many choices of restaurants within a short walking distance.
Large, spacious rooms with views overlooking square are available- some with private balcony.
Breakfast Buffet - Many choices - fresh and varied.

A few Negatives:
WiFi was sporatic and slow. I had trouble using Skype even in the Reception area.
Although the rooms were decorated with contemporary art, the hotel is old and "tired". Tiles broken, grout discolored and broken, well worn, etc.
Lots of stairs - beware if you are given a higher floored room. Lots of tiny, narrow stairs to carry luggage.

Considering all of the above, I would stay there again. The positives outweighed the few negatives.

Just loved this quirky arty hotel:

Positives - great helpful staff, comfy quiet aircon room with stylish minimalist decor, bountiful breakfast buffet style with loads of good fresh fruit (why is this so rare!?), reasonable price, excellent location in the centre of town, whole hotel stuffed with retro art including my favourite kinetic 60's works.

(Minor) Negatives: Is up at least one flight of stairs. Shower a tad too minimalist - worked fine but careless use leads to wet bathroom floor.

All in all, for value and pazazz, best of our stay.

We had a great time in Vaison la Romaine, this hotel was very central. When they say the garage is tight for your car they aren't kidding, we had approximately 2" on either side to squeeze in. The staff were very helpful and everything was clean. The air conditioning in our room didn't work and the bed wasn't great but all around we enjoyed this hotel.

We stayed in this hotel for a week and used it as a base for exploring the area by car everyday. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They advised us of the parking situation on market day (careful where you park). We found the room to be very large and comfortable. The tile in the bathroom was old and the fixtures a little aged but for the money this place was a real value. The room was actually decorated to be very contemporary. We had a skylight in our room that had and electric blind on it so you wouldn't be woken by the sunlight. We had A/C and thick windows that eliminated sound from outside. Free WIFI and a beautiful terrace to enjoy a breakfast that I found to be worth the extra money. We used the terrace to enjoy our picnic lunches and wine in the afternoon that we purchased from the local grocery that is right downstairs. The friendly staff loaned us some glasses and a plate when needed. My wife takes a medication that needs refrigeration which the staff made room for in the hotel refrigerator.... I can't go on enough about these great people. The hotel stairs and lobby has a few loose tiles and could use some work but other than that this hotel is a great value. While there we noticed that this hotel is very popular with amateur European cyclists. There was a group of about a dozen and it was nice to meet people from off the American tourist route. The location is exactly where you want to be. You could spend double or more to be on the other side of the roman bridge in the old part of town but honestly you would have to hike to this side of the bridge for dinner every night and you will save your feet by being more central here. Parking is available in the lot right out front in place Montfort except on market day when you will have to park farther from the hotel.

My husband and I spent the day driving all around the Cote De Rhone ( I would recommend Le Crestet, and visiting the numerous wineries in the area--BEAUTIFUL!) When we finally made it to our hotel in Vaison La Romaine, after a long hot day of travelling, we were pretty surprised byt the flight of stairs we had to hike our luggage up (big luggage--we were on holiday for 2 weeks) to get to the lobby. And then once given our room key, there were a few more set sof stairs!! Our room was okay. It was clean but nothing special. SInce it was a hot day 29 degrees we tried to use the air conditioning but couldn't get it working (which is a reason why we picked this hotel) when we asked at the front desk how to get it working, we were told that since it wasn't very hot out the A/C wouldn't be turned on (a decision we think we should have been able to make)

The hotel is right downtown and it's a nice area, though we were there on a monday and not much was open!

Our room was on the ground floor so I wasn't comfortable leaving the door open through the night, so our room felt more like a sauna since we couldn't use the a/c

Also the shower was pretty odd--there was no curtain or glass door and the shower wasn't far off the ground so when we used the shower the water went all over the floor (the floor is tiled) and stayed wet until the next morning!

I would definately recommend touring the cote de rhone region though--the views are breathtaking!

  • Liked — wasnlt really all that impressed with the accomodation
  • Disliked — the fact that we didn't have a choice about the temperature in our room
