“very nice place”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

Avignon is already a very beautiful place. The hotel is just next to the popes palace, you can see the place from the window. The decoration of the restaurant was amazing in the christmas period, very warm and welcoming. We stayed just one night, did not have any problems with the staff. The room was clean and comfortable and it was warm. It is not very cheap, but we do not regret the money we paid, it was nice stay at Avignon.

Room Tip: The rooms are not the same, since the hotel was an old building before. You should ask if you want s...

We checked into the Hotel du Palais des Papes (not the Kyriad) and were really disappointed with the "superior" room that came with a broken fan and no air con because although we had booked several weeks before they had run out of rooms with the advertised air con. Not great in 30+ degree weather. We stayed in a number of other 2 and 3 star hotels during a two month trip in France and Italy that were completely adequate, and often exceeded our expectations, but this hotel was completely below par. It may have a nice cafe and location but the room was appalling: hot and stuffy, hard bed, and exposed wires in the hallway outside the room. We left that night, took the hit of the one night we had already paid for and avoided a ruined stay in Avignon.

I ve been there with my familly for a 3 nights stay and it was fabulous from our arrival to our departur! Service was perfect and the staff friendly. The restaurant of the hotel was a good stop for dinners.
I will recommend room 20 and 22, for the restaurant I will recommend the Bourride.

We had a wonderful stay in Avignon this past September/2011.

On the upper section of the Place de'Horloge there is the Hotel Palais des Papes that has a lovely outside cafe! we decided to stop there for a late lunch and had a delicious provence meal. The vegetable omlette was filled with fresh ingredients, the salad was crisp with fresh goat cheese and honey dressing., crusty french bread and a good house wine! for about 14E.

We sat at tables with white linen tablecloths under the canopy next to big bushes of fabulous smelling rosemary! Was great!

Service was efficient! A lovely location, and just around the corner from the "Popes Palace".

Room Tip: didnt stay at the hotel but the outside cafe was lovely.

I was surprised at the price of our room, given the location, - just 99 euros. We booked for the Friday evening after dining in the restaurant on Thursday and were surprised also that there were rooms available.

The room, as with the hotel, appeared quite medieval (as others have said) and had a very warm feel to it. The only small issues I would have are 1) that the toilet cubicle was not big enough - sit down and your knees were pushed hard up against the door and 2) whilst giving the appearance of a solid, stone structure, in fact many of the walls were partitions only - for example, the walls in the bathroom were tiled partitions. There was some noise from another room.

The hotel itself, the reception area, the corridors, the dining areas etc were delightful. We had two lunches and two dinners (including one chateaubriand!) in the restaurant and we couldn't be tempted to eat anywhere else. Marvellous.

We stayed at this hotel in October 2011 and had a room for the hole family - 2 adults, 2 children. The room (€ 123) had been recently remade, and was nice, clean and functional. There is even a TV in the separate room of the kids ;-). Service was of high quality. What we liked is that the "castle" aspect of the hotel and its great location (between place de l'horloge and Palais des Papes). I would definitly recommend it (and go back there). Also very close to parking of Palais de Papes (unlike many other hotels)

The Hotel du Palais des Papes has a nice, medieval character with stone walls and narrow staircases as well as a cosy breakfast restaurant with a fireplace. The staff is kind and professional, and the location could not be better.
