"Wonderful little hotel in the best area of Avignon"
We loved our stay at Hotel de L'Horloge. The staff were lovely and very helpful. It's in the best spot in Avignon, right on Place Horloge and next to the Palais de Papes and close to the main strip of shops. Also the best breakfast I've ever had at a hotel!
My husband and I enjoyed a delightful long weekend at La Mirande recently. I would recommend this hotel especially in off-season as I imagine the service is more attentive (as it was during our stay) than it would be in the summer. Our room was spacious and charmingly old-world. The many common spaces are delightful, especially the indoor atrium which services afternoon tea and the walled gardens. We also enjoyed dinner at La Mirande which served an especially good cheese course. The entree was nothing special but overall I would highly recommend this hotel and restaurant.
We arrived in Avignon by train, and this hotel was easy walking distance, even with heavy bags. It is one block off the main road which makes it peaceful and quiet, but still near shops and restaurants. Buffet breakfast is a bit expensive, but plenty of good food choices. The building itself is just lovely, built in the 1500s around a central courtyard. We liked the quirky historic rooms but ours had interior stairs so be sure to specify if you have limited mobility. The hotel does have an elevator. Look for the 16th century chapel just hidden away in the building - we found it by accident and it was spooky, dark, and wonderful!!
Really friendly owner welcomed us and showed us to our rooms. Neat and comfortable. They don't have a bar or restaurant it is more an aparthotel with a kitchenette in the room. I didn't intend to use this and the room would be small if you did want to, but there are great restaurants etc in easy walking distance. Comfortable bed and quiet.

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.
