We stayed in the Thames Residences Hotel from September 24 to September 28; and we were delighted with our accommodations. Our apartment was very spacious, clean, bright, and comfortable. Upon checking in, we were given a tour of the apartment's offerings, including the internet and free VOIP phone calls to the U.S. We were also provided with information on sights to visit in the area, available tours, and restaurants. We loved having access to the terrace with its view of the wall of the Old City. It was so convenient to walk across the street into the walled Old City. We saw a lot of the Provence region and Avignon but left with a longing to see more. When we return we will definitely stay at the Thames Residences Hotel again.
