The location of this hotel is near the centre of Avignon and close to the main railway station. We got a very friendly welcome and our room was clean and as shown in the advertising. Two things really let this hotel down. One was the shower which was in the bath with no shower curtain which meant you couldn't help get water everywhere when showering. The other was after such a friendly welcome we got the total opposite from the two reception staff one evening by daring to ask if we could get a coffee at 10pm when we arrived back from a long days driving. We were told if we wanted coffee we would have to go and get one in the town! I was shocked that in a hotel like this that they did not have facilities to provide a coffee. (We did go out to look but even the cafés and bars were closing) Even the budget chain hotels we had previously stayed in within France have been able to provide this. We understand that on the continent not many places supply tea and coffee in the rooms but have never stayed in a hotel that cannot provide this facility outside of breakfast hours.
