Hotel du Fiacre
Ranked #5 of 9 Hotels in Carpentras
Reviewed 7 August 2013

because this hotel was listed as nr 2 in Carpentras we decided to stay and, despite other tripadvisor judgements, this was one big deception: no airconditioning at 39 degrees C...
Advice by staff: open your windows at night time, but together with some fresh air a lot of local traffic noise came in too. Bathroom was not very clean. The building seems to be outdated. The inner court has a marvellous tree but with polypropylene grass underneath...
Unacceptable relationship price/quality. Don't go there in summertime!

Room Tip: not suitable in summertime

I have been seaching a lot on the net back home in Denmark to find a hotel that me and my wife would like to stay at:

Space enough. In the middle of a small town. Close to Mont Ventoux (I am a biker).

We chosed Fiacre. And in short terms every thing is very, very good .... even the weather was ok :))

Even if you are not a biker, the hotel is perfect choise. Close to "everything" in the country and a
pleasant walk in the town .... and the service as execellent :))

Best regards

Of all the places we stayed on our recent trip to France, this was probably our least favorite. The pros of this place are that the staff are very welcoming and helpful, the hotel is right in the old city and there is free parking close by. Most of the rooms face onto a courtyard within the hotel so are really quiet. The cons were that the hotel is old and a bit down-at-heel. Nothing had been modernized in years. The mattress was old and thin, the towels scratchy, the shower very ancient and in need of a good scrub. The room, though spacious, with great high ceilings, had no windows to open and let air in and was a bit musty. It was not horrible, it is a fairly cheaply priced hotel so I guess you get what you pay for. I don’t think it was bad value for money, but we did not want to spend time in the room, and we just had much better accommodation everywhere else for less. We were also a little disappointed in the town of Carpentras itself. It was not as charming as many others we had passed through. A little busier, a little less well kept.

I was actually quite nervous about our stay at this hotel, since we normally stay in a little higher level of accommodation. I have been in some "traditional" hotels and often they are dingy, old and unpleasant. Not so with the Hotel du Fiacre! It is traditional, if not a little old-fashioned in the decor, but it is tasteful, clean and in great condition. The woman who first met us seemed a little put off by us and our bicycles, but once she saw that we could understand a little French, follow directions (to take off our bicycle shoes inside), and then saw us cleaned up and dressed up, she was totally charming. She asked if we needed restaurant recommendations and thanks to her, we went to Chez Serge (across the street) which was fantastic. She also made sure we understood how to use the key to return after 9 pm and she warmly sent us off to walk around the city. And when we saw the interior courtyard and I mentioned how pretty it was, she said we could have breakfast outdoors the next morning.

We had a very large room with high ceiling facing the inside courtyard, and we were given a big standing fan, so we were very comfortable sleeping. The room was quiet, very spacious and very clean and once we figured out the TV, we were all set. Even the lights by the beds were good enough to use for reading, which is not always the case. The bathroom was a bit odd sized (long and narrow), not uncommon for older hotels that have to fit in private baths, but it was in good condition, with plenty of soaps and shampoos, and a tub with shower wand. (Okay, the tile near the tub had some mold, but I've seen much much worse). And there was free wifi that worked just fine in the room!

Breakfast was delightful - we did sit outdoors and a different person took great care to set up our table with tablecloth and dishes, then gave us the chance to personalize our breakfast -- we had choices of fruits, yogurt, jams etc and she made sure we had exactly what we wanted. She was so friendly, and although she spoke very good English, she merrily played along with my French. Great coffee, a huge assortment of breads and pastries and her smiling service made it a really enjoyable start to the day.

We were very comfortable and enjoyed our stay very much -- and at a very good price.

Room Tip: Since the prices are so reasonable, I recommend choosing the largest possible room, just to give you...

We were truly blown away by the Hotel du Fiacre. From the huge, well styled room with private terrace (room 3) to the excellent service. Breakfast was amazing in the cute courtyard, which also made a great location for an afternoon bottle of wine. The hotel closes up early (9pm) so make sure you get the key for the side entrance or you'll find yourself locked out. Parking is ample nearby in the free car park. We did find that restaurants closed fairly early compared to other towns so don't leave your dinner too late. Overall this was a great experience and an excellent base to explore Provence.

Room Tip: We had room 3 with the private terrace, but with the courtyard available this is not really necessar...

I feel like this is an "authentic" French hotel. It has a romantic feel to it with antique furnishings and a big open courtyard. The location is great for exploring the town as well as for getting out into the Provence countryside. We stayed for 2 nights. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was huge! Our stay was very enjoyable. Although they advertise they speak English, we had some difficulty with language upon our arrival. However, it was nothing a few gestures and patience couldn't fix.
