“Price Point OK, Studio Facility for Student Housing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

This facility is good for longer stays and if you would like to cook your own food.

The staff was friendly and helpful presenting a map upon arrival. The rooms are clean and are a student dorm type studio. The facility is used for student housing and sometimes on late nights this can be heard but not too much. The lobby is not open 24 hours and if you arrive late you will have to make some kind of arrangements.

The main drawback of this housing is the bathroom. It is a bit small and the water heater in my room was located directly above the toilet. I hit my head almost every time I sat on the toilet.

The area is secure by key card. The Wifi works well.

There is a breakfast option for 6.5 Euro but I did not partake.

Room Tip: The higher up the less echo from the courtyard below.

We found the staff very welcoming but there isn't usually anyone around so don't expect a hotel style reception. The area is very secure with key cards to let you in the complex, the block and your room. It was roomy with a large bedroom/study/ table area. There were 2 hot plates, fridge, a microwave and sink with hot water in the kitchenette. I was impressed by the electric coffee filter machine and washing up liquid. We prepared breakfast and evening meal and ate out at lunchtime. We got croissants from Carrefour City or La Mie Quotidienne on rue de la République about 10-15 mins away. We were happy with French only TV but could be a problem for some. We were on the ground floor so didn't want to have windows open all night. This could be a problem in summer as no air con. Ask for a fan at least. There were heaters for winter. It was quiet and the area is shabby or picturesque depending on how you look at it. You are soon in the posher areas. It is about 10 mins from the Central station and TGV shuttle and 5 mins from the bus depot. Main square about 15 mins walk. The en suite was fine and had a hair dryer, towels, soap but the shower is tight and the curtain mouldy and ripped. On the whole we had a very pleasant stay as we were expecting student style accommodation.

Room Tip: Upstairs room in summer so you can have the window open. It seems secure but we didn't want the...

We needed a room on short notice, and Les Cordeliers worked well for us. The price was very reasonable, and the location was outstanding. This must have been some sort of dormitory, and works well as a hotel. The building and courtyard are older and very cool in a historic way. The place is secure with a nice ambiance. There is no room air conditioning, probably because there is no easy way to install it through the thick walls. It was plenty cool enough in mid September just by opening the window. Some street noise comes in, but was not a problem for us over three nights. The mini kitchen worked well. The bathroom was tiny, reflecting the design of the times during construction. The funky old traps in the plumbing gurgle a little bit when draining, which allows a slight bit of odor through. The bed was hard, but I bring along a Big Agnes Air Core Short pad for just such situations. The furnishings were spare, but that added to the feeling of being in a quaint old building. The room was clean, but there was a little dust on some obscure surfaces. The staff was super helpful.

Room Tip: Go for the second or third floors. There is an elevator.

We stayed here only because our accommodation was cancelled due to renovations with just three weeks notice before we left Australia so it was a scramble to secure some accommodation as we had plans in place,
There was not much to choose from, as it was a particularly busy time, there was a music festival on over the weekend we were their.

It is only for backpackers, the studio apartment we had was very basic, the floors were tiled and not clean. The room itself was very small, there was a window to open as there was no cooling,
but there was heating if required but in late June in Avignon you do not need heating.

The shower was the smallest ever found and we have travelled through Europe and have had some small showers, the toilet you could not sit on properly, you needed to turn sideways.

We survived three nights, but mostly because we spent most of our time out.

If you are 21 this is probably fine, but for a mature aged couple it sucked.

One positive probably best for the backpackers it is a secure residence.

We would give this a rating of one star. The staff were friendly, no complaint there.

The other thing because it is most backpackers the noise factor during the night is high,
The young people come home at various time during the night, and as you need to have
the window open for some air we contended with lots of screaming and shouting, so obviously
the sleep factor was not good.
