“adequate”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2011

This hotel is in an excellent location as it is right by the train station. It is quiet and right on a bus line. The hotel is out of the city centre, so to get to the city, you must take a bus. When we arrived, we went to our room and there was a wickid smell. It was as if someone had just vacated the room and it was not clean. We found hairs on the toilet seat and were not impressed with the overall cleanlieness. However the decor was modern and there was a flat screen tv. There was also wireless internet in the room. The staff was not helpful and snapped at us when we asked her to repeat something she said due to a language barrier. The breakfast was expensive and not worth it at all. I would stay here again for the convenience but only if I could pay no more than 80 euros per night. Not worth it!!!

Room Tip: ask them to clean it before you occupy it!

Dear Sir,
I take good note of your critic and I first would like to thank you about the time you spent writing about your stay at 3*** Kyriad Avignon gare TGV.
Of course I deeply regret your bad experience with the cleanliness.
Cleanliness in a hotel is the most important and of course we are aiming to satisfy our guest on this point. That is why we are so sorry about what you wrote.
Please, be sure that the housekeeper and the chambermaids have been informed about your comment.
We have set up a room control everyday and we try our best so that this does not happen again even if that means to check every one of the 95 rooms, .
We hope to see you soon again so that you do not keep in mind a bad experience and see our effort;
Best Regards
Julia
Sales Manager

We decided to take the train down to Provence for a change and decided stay at the Kyriad in Avignon overnight before picking up the hire car. The hotel was within 5 minutes walk of the station but we chose to get a taxi as it was 31 degrees when we arrived and we couldn't face dragging the cases any further. The taxi took 2 minutes but cost 10 euros, so be warned.

The hotel reception staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. The room had everything we needed and was very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was better than we expected and the hotel allowed us to leave our baggage in a secure room the next morning so that we could spend the morning in Avignon before picking up our hire car and collecting our luggage. There is a bus stop across the roundabout and you can travel into the town centre within 10 minutes and all for a euro. The hotel reception priovides a timetable on check in. All in all great value and a great location for either an over night stop or a long weekend.

We stayed there in July -a family of 4 in 2 rooms -for few nights as a basis for provence tour. Location is good if you have a car: it is about 10 min drive to Avignon city center, you have free parking, and very easy (trafic prespective) to go to many provence towns. There is a commercial center with fast food and big grocery store (walking distance from the hotel). The hotel in general is spacious (lobby and dining area). Rooms are quite small and basic - but very clean and comfortable. Service is very good and reception guys are very customer oriented and willing to help with any question /help needed. Breakfast was good. So taking in account it is a 3 stars hotel and the money you pay - it is a good deal.

Hotel is convenient for transportation. It is an easy walk from the TGV station, and a bus stop to the old part of Avignon is about 100 meters away. The Kyriad has a car park, useful if you rent a car at the train station for local exploring.
Room was clean and quiet. Restaurant served good food and the WiFi reception was good.

Very clean and neat. Rooms were spacious. Internet was available free and at a very good speed. The reception staff was very kind and helpful to arrange for the sight seeing. Breakfast was great with many options.

I have recently visited Avignon (during the July Avignon festivals) and stayed at this hotel for two nights. It was great to be away from the hustle and bustle of the inner city ('intra muros') as there were thousands of people in this old part of the city attending the different shows. The Kyriad Avignon Courtine is situated in the 'extra muros' part of the city, very close to the Gare TGV. Transport from the hotel to the inner city is very easy. The bus stop is situated about 150 metres from the hotel. There is a bus every 20 minutes from this bus stop to town.

The staff at the hotel speaks English quite well and were very helpful and friendly. My room was comfortable, very clean ... and it was very peaceful during the night as there are no busy roads or noisy night spots close to the hotel. The bed was very comfortable for a tall person; the shower was big and the rest of the bathroom was very comfortable too. Breakfast comprised of yoghurt, cereals, different types of breads, cold meats, cheeses, coffee/tea, fruit. The hot breakfast comprised of sausages and scrambled eggs but this hot breakfast is really not recommended!

The hotel meets all the criteria of a good budget hotel. It will not meet the expectations of travellers who are used to luxury hotels as it is not supposed to be luxurious. The open cupboards (cupboards with no doors) are fine and so are the other furnishings. The hotel is furnished in a minimalistic way which some people may consider cold and even without personality. I enjoyed the absence of clutter and the functionality of the furniture and other furnishings.

This is a clean, not fancy, nice hotel a few miles from the city center. I was just looking for an affordable place where I mainly would sleep and shower. If you have a car (free gated parking) it is trivial to get to the old city. You can walk along the river - ~ 45 minutes but pleasant. Staff was very helpful in setting up dinner reservations and other helpful tips. Breakfast is typical of european hotels - breads, jams, cereal, meats, yogurts etc. Bed was typical for these types of hotels. It was very quiet.
