“Wonderful location and good room”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

We have just enjoyed 3 nights at this hotel which is on the main square of Avignon so a short walk across to the Palace of the Popes and all that the lovely village of Avignon has to offer. Our room, which was spacious, clean, fresh and very comfortable, overlooked the Square with opening windows to enjoy the ambience of the many cafés, brasseries and a pretty carousel. The breakfast room is delightful offering plenty of variety and with very helpful and pleasant staff. The front desk staff are friendly, extremely helpful and professional. The staff always had a smile to greet you and, although the reception area was often very busy, they always happily attended to guests needs and queries. To be fair to future travellers, I would say that the trade off for having a front room is that it can be somewhat noisy during the night - but then we like to sleep with the windows open and, when closed, there really isn't a problem.

My wife and I had the good fortune to spend 4 nights in the Hotel de L'Horloge. First of all, it's location, location, location. You could not find a better location to explore Avignon. It is located right next to the main square of the city and steps from the Papal Palace. The hotel is quirky enough to give it some character. Check in and check out is very efficient. Wifi connection adequate; limited English channels on tv(but is to be expected). The room itself is pretty standard. The one thing I did not like was the typical "high bathtub" which made it difficult to access for anyone with mobility issues.There are also numerous steps even when using the elevator. If there is one criticism it is the outrageous cost of the breakfast (I think it was around 18euros). However, there are dozens of other options within feet of the hotel. Overall, I would highly recommend the hotel. If you are to spend time in Provence, this hotel and Avignon is a great base.

Room Tip: Get breakfast from local boulengeries...

This hotel is right in the middle of Avignon, great location. The room is just OK, small, almost no closet, toilet paper on the back of the toilet(jeez). We had a room facing the square, and the noise was very noticeable until about 1AM. If you are a light sleeper, not a good thing. Quite expensive for what we got.

Room Tip: don't get a room in front if you want to go to sleep before 1AM.

Stayed here as part of a great rail holiday. Our room was lovely with a large bathroom. The breakfast was delicious with lots of choice and the staff were very helpful. Location excellent, right in the centre of the main square but quiet at night. We would return to visit again.

We stayed for three nights to visit Arles and Nimes by train, and then walked all over Avignon old town over the next day. Great location for the historic parts , good local eateries, a walk to the scnf train down the Main Street. Staff were helpful , we didn't eat there , even breakfast , options in the street.

The view from my room on the " Horloge" at the municipality was special, particulary in the dark.
This is a warm personal nice hotel with a good location in central Avignon.
Breakfast is tasty and with a good varety and the atmosphere in the breakfast room gives you the start of the day you need to discover Avignon.
Confortable beds a Big Plus.

Room Tip: View to " L`Horloge" for sensitive artistic souls.

We can't praise the staff and management of this hotel enough. They were so responsive to our needs and so helpful that we can say without any reservation, it was some of the best service we have ever experienced. We booked in advance with breakfast included and were pleased we did so. The breakfast room is charming, every taste is catered for and the ladies who oversee it are very attentive and friendly. We were made to feel very much at home. Our room was beautifully serviced and refreshed every day while we were out. The hotel is located ideally being right off the main square with an easy walk to the Papal Palace and other sites of interest. It is also an easy level walk down the main street from Avignon Central station. Overall a delightful stay!
