Booked a triple room at the Grand Hotel, located beside the train station in Avignon. The room we had was more like a suite, with a small sitting room. It was roughly 142 Euros per night IIRC.
The room was clean, with a nice enough bathroom. My bed, (the third) was more of a cot, so I think I would just book a single if I was to stay here again.
The front desk was friendly and helpful.
The breakfast was really nice quality, for 15 Euros. It seemed steep at the time, but after visiting a half dozen more hotels in France after the Grand Hotel, the breakfast in retrospect was a good deal.
The walls of the Old Town are just across the street from the Grand Hotel, so it was quite convenient, but waiting for the traffic light to change in order to cross sometimes seemed to take a long time.
If I returned to Avignon, I'd be more likely to stay in the Old Town rather than at the Grand Hotel, mostly because the immediate neighbourhood around the Grand does not have many options for dining or coffee, and it isn't particularly attractive. Luckily, I like to walk, so the 10-15 minute walk to the nicer parts of the Old Town from the Grand Hotel wasn't a chore.
