Reviewed 16 May 2012

Hotel located in downtown - near "Le Palais des Papes". The hotel itself is nothing special, in old building, but it is clean and cozy. They have a good breakfest and the staff are pleasant (most of time). Parking is a little far from hotel and it's paid (EU$ 14.00/day).

This is a great hotel in the middle of the historic centre of Avignon. The desk staff are extremely helpful and will steer you away from the tourist oriented restaurants in the nearby square. The rooms are clean, bright and well appointed. We have booked for another night on our way back to Paris.

I had a brief get-away in Avignon while staying in Paris, very easy to do on the TGV train ..... left Paris at 7am, got to Avignon around 10am.
The hotel is easy to find and well appointed. My room faced the square and had large windows that could be opened wide to let in the breeze (as others have mentioned, that was necessary due to the room being too hot).
Compact bathroom and tiny shower - but all newly renovated and very clean - with good toiletries.
I appreciated the tea/coffee/cookies in the room after pounding the cobblestones all day, it was a blessing to have a quiet 'cuppa' while winding down.
The breakfast was superb - I think that €14 was a reasonable price given that it was limitless and included hot options, continental options and freshly squeezed OJ. (just a croissant, an OJ and a small coffee would have cost €6 at one of the small cafes in town)
The free WiFi was indeed very patchy but accessible enough to be able to pick up my mail. However, there is a computer available in the sitting area if all else fails.
The front-of-house team are friendly and very helpful; as are the house-keeping and breakfast room staff that I had contact with. All are welcoming and polite.
I would certainly stay there in future.

This was a short breakaway trip for me from the romantic Paris. I wanted to have a taste of the infamous Avignon, Provence. It took me a couple of hours of going through Trip Advisors reviews(thank you contributors) and recommendations that i decided on this hotel one day prior to departure. The photos helped too.

I was able to find my way to the hotel very easily from the bus stop. It's tucked away just a few meters from the main square and is within walking distance from the Opéra-théâtre d'Avignon & Palais des Papes.

The hotel staff spoke good English and was very helpful especially the Front Office Manager. He went out of his way to help find my reservation as there was none to be found. After two hours of calling the online travel sites, they found my prepaid reservation! Thank God, it wasn't a bogus web site! Having bad experiences in France years ago, this was a pleasant surprise for someone like me who spoke very little French, received help!

Although it's a small hotel it had a small lift. However, if you are travelling with more than one lugguage(heavy/large), try to get a room that is on the same level as the lift because some rooms are located on floors that have spilt levels (just a few steps that can be an inconvenience). Due to the layout of the hotel, there maybe pockets of wifi reception in the rooms if that's a priority for you.

I had a corner room which is tastefully furnished, bright and clean(very impt). The bed was comfortable and had a soft feathered duvet to sleep in. I was also impressed that they had high end guest toiletries too. Wished i had more time to enjoy my stay there.

I stayed 6 days in the Hotel d'Horloge on a business trip. The staff was helpful and friendly. The breakfast was excellent (!) and the breakfast room was really nice. The room was small but clean and comfortable. Wifi was free but it was sometimes not possible to login. The location of the hotel is perfect, right next to the town hall, many good restaurants and near to the pope's palace. I fully recommend the hotel, if a reliable wifi connection is not a high priority.

Room Tip: Some people reported about noise from outside in the early morning. My room (302) was quiet all the...

This is an excellently situated hotel; just off the busy Place de L'horloge and so easy to walk everywhere. The hotel is very well-equipped and our (double) bedroom was clean and nicely furnished with a v comfortable bed, excellent bathroom and separate loo. It all was newly furnished and decorated. BUT - as for "cat-swinging" not very good! The room was exceptionally small, with the smallest hanging cupboard (hardly could be called a wardrobe) and nowhere with drawers to put underwear, socks etc. (we left ours in the cases). We had selected the second level of price and so I imagine that the basic room had to be miniscule!
The breakfast was excellent - hot options available and all else you could possibly want - a huge options of coffees, breads and pastries, fresh juices etc. And, most impressively, they never ran out - everything was regularly replenished. The small light in our room was not repaired during our stay although we reported its malfunction as we settled in; the lift was out of action one morning - a problem as we were on the 4th floor! But despite these minor "minuses", we would recommend it to you if you would like to stay in a high quality 3 star hotel in the centre of Avignon.

Room Tip: Maybe look at their "better" rooms
