Just round the corner from the central station and across the road from the city walls, the hotel is just 15 mins walk from the heart of Avignon. Suited us perfectly. Good breakfast; did not eat any other meals there. Staff very helpful with information but never any bar staff - and no red wine one evening!
The room was very small with a small low round table between the door and the bed that blocked direct access to the bathroom. There was no liquid shower gel/ shampoo in the dispenser in the shower and no washcloths. Shower head needed adjustment to work. Bathroom was a good size compared to the bedroom. The room was reached via a small staircase after the elevator so bags need to be carried up the stairs. The breakfast room was reached via an internal series of turns and stairs or going outside. The breakfast included a good selection of sliced and whole fresh fruit and delicious scrambled eggs or make your own soft boiled. Discounted parking is at a public garage several blocks away, but sometimes full necessitating parking outside the city wall in an open pay lot.
The room was very dated but comfy, view was zero for the room I was given, as the window looked into a ventilation shaft with bird poo but for the price I paid, was very happy, if at full booking rate, would have been a different story.

Historic and stylish, Avignon’s highlights are the beautifully preserved ramparts, a huge medieval fortress, and the monumental Palais des Papes, recalling Avignon’s 14th-century papal seat prestige. Made famous in a children’s nursery rhyme, its medieval bridge is also a top attraction, although only four arches remain of the original 22. It’s also famous as a city of performing arts and hosts a spectacular Summer Festival.
