“Enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We had an excellent stay here!
My only negative thing to say about this room was the noise. We were staying facing one of the roads (not the main square). We found it very noisy even with the windows closed.
This is the only negative thing to say however. Our room was extremely clean. Bed very comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic with a lot to choose from (although the coffee wasn't particularly good). Overall the hotel had a great atmosphere.
We also found the staff very helpful. We asked for advice on where to go to do our laundry and the place we ended up in was great (and cheap).
I would stay here again and recommend anyone else to as well. We loved Avignon as a whole and only wish we had spent more time in this beautiful city.
P.S. The restaurant downstairs from the hotel in the square was a great spot!

I loved this hotel! It was right in the center of the town, restaurants in the square right out front of the hotel, and the palais des papes was a five minute walk from it. The bed was large and VERY comfortable and plush. The toiletries in the bathroom were really nice quality too:) As a side note, the wines that they have for purchase at the hotel are Delicious, they have a great Rose.

Overall, GREAT location, LARGE room, GREAT bed, very clean. We would stay here again.

Stayed as part of a group with Great Rail Journeys. This hotel is ideally situated in the center of the old city of Avignon close to the main sites and restaurants. Lovely breakfast room with good range of food including fresh fruit and ample tea and coffee. Does not offer lunch or evening meals. Our room was spacious and the air conditioning kept it cool despite being almost 40C outside. Only complaint was that there was a lack of storage space with single tiny wardrobe and the shower was too small with a curtain that stuck to you. Rooms overlooking the square can be noisy if the bar below is opening late at the weekend. Would use again.

Room Tip: Request higher floor not overlooking the square in case the bar below has a late licence at the week...

Don't stay here. We spent 2 sweltering nights in this hotel and never slept a wink. Avignon is very warm and the air conditioning was insufficient to provide any cooling of the room. We asked for a fan and was told they were all out. The room was small and had creepy carpeting. The bathroom had a cheap, dark linoleum floor. The breakfast was great as was the location, but these benefits were quickly forgotten when we stepped into the room. 2 gentleman at the desk during the day hours were very polite, but the female desk clerk in the evening seemed to want to argue with everyone. Keep looking!

I'll most definitely stay here again. Fabulous location just steps from the Papal Palace. Our room was large, even by US standards, with a fantastic view of the main square. Staff was great and upon arrival we were upgraded to a superior room at no extra charge. I've been to Avignon several times but this was my first stay in Hotel de L'horage. I'll book here again next trip!

Very well located hotel, steps from the main street , palais des papes, etc. Clean and nice room ( a bit small) , bed , desk and mini bar. Very nice bathroom, the toilet is in a separated room in the long corridor inside the room ,which has the form of a letter “L”. Breakfast quite expensive. You can have a much cheaper one at the corner of the hotel. I recommend wine and olive tours ( they pick you up from the hotel , half a day tour !) This hotel is a great option for anyone wanting to visit the beautiful town of Avignon.

We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Loved our spacious premium room with large bed and a sitting room, separate toilet and nice bathroom. Breakfast had a very good variety of hot and cold foods. This hotel is right in the centre of Avignon within easy walking distance to Place de papes and Pont d'Avignon. Lots of restaurants and shops within 2 minutes walk. Short transfer to the Avignon TGV station. Very quiet enjoyable stay would highly recommend to stay here.
