The mini apartment was clean and very practically located. The bus and train station are just moments away, and the city with all its attractions is just across the street.

There's a lot to like about this hotel, most notably its comfort and excellent location. It is located just two minutes from the Avignon Centre train station and across the street from one of the entrances to the old walled city. It does bear repeating, as other reviewers have noted, that the entrance to this hotel is INSIDE the Avignon...

We have a good sized apartment with two beds, a sitting room area, and a sliding divider. The terrace is lovely and big but not a great view but provides an area for eating outside. Helpful manager gave us good advice when we were stranded by a train strike.
