We were given an upgrade room (sounds like a familiar story) and thought wow that's good having previously seen the extra price tag for the duplex room with spiral staircase. Accommodation: upstairs - 1x Double bedroom with wardrobe and TV, 1x twin bedroom with no space to hang clothes &no TV, balcony off each bedroom although only ONE chair and a table to share between the two balconies (very odd), bathroom with WC, Basin and shower over bath. Downstairs - large lounge diner area with daybed pull out sofa, 2nd bathroom with WC, Shower Cubicle & Hand Basin. The spiral staircase is falling off the wall and very flimsy. No kettle or courtesy tray - supposed to be 4star!!! There is a mini bar with 50cl mineral water at 4euro - but you only find out the price if you ask - they claim info in book but it is not!! Roof top pool a plunge pool but nice to sit up there.
The whole place could do with an upgrade in decor as it is now very shabby, especially in corridors. There were just two of us and really the big space seems nice but I would rather have a fresh clean room with basic mod cons (i.e. kettle). Staff ok.
Great location especially if like us you arrive by train, albeit the TGV and not the train into Avignon Gare Central, however, only 1euro fare each from the TGV station using the shuttle bus.
Avignon appears to have social problems - lots of drunks & vagrants hanging around. Had the misfortune to experience one such fellow using a shop doorway to defecate in at about 8pm this evening - not pleasant!
