We stayed here for 2 nights in early May. We travelled to Avignon by train from Nice. Upon arriving at the train station, there were no taxis to be seen so we decided to take the city shuttle bus. Easy, quick, convenient, and a value... until we got to the city and had to hike it down the Rue de la Republic, twisting our way to the hotel schlepping our luggage over the medieval cobblestone streets, not a taxi in sight.
Our room was quite charming, with a view overlooking the garden and the back of the Pope's Palace. The beds were comfy and the bathroom was spacious and roomy with double sinks and a totally separate toilet room with sink.
Some reviewers have mentioned the small size of the rooms. They are small, but remember it is a very historic and old building. I think the hotel has done a marvelous job renovating the rooms and keeping the historic charm intact.
The staff from the front desk clerks to the wait/bar staff to the maid staff were all very polite and spoke to us by name every time they addressed us.
I'm glad we made this choice of hotels for our stay in Avignon. You can't beat the location, the service, nor the charm.
