“Fantastic owners”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

Here are owners who offer a fantastic welcome and are obviously interested in helping you and making sure all is OK. I arrived last minute and had the last room. Yes, it was small, but it had a view of the river and of the Papal Palace in Avignon, and was clean with nice toiletries. Breakfast was good too. A 10 minute walk to Avignon just across the bridge. Will definitely use this hotel next time I'm in Avignon.

When we arrived, we found our room rather small and were moved to a much larger the next day.
Rooms are very clean and well kept. The owners are very friendly and help out to find places to visit and where to eat well. Breakfast was very nice with large choice. The village (Villeneuve-lez-Avignon) is worth the while to visit. Easy to walk from the hotel into town as well.

We've just got back from our stay at the Cube and am very happy to say the reviews are correct. We stayed for 4 days and had a 3rd floor, balcony, twin apartment. The room was a good size, with an en suite bathroom, table and chairs and mini bar. Everything was clean but the paintwork could maybe do with a touch-up.

The room was had secondry double-glazing in the shape of patio doors which kept the noise of the sometimes busy road outside. The view of the Rhone was amazing and wonderful to wake up to.
We had breakfast for 3 of the mornings and there was a lovely selection of breads and pastries, cereals, fruits, ham and cheese and for those that like good tea the selection was great.

Lastly but not least, the staff were fantastic. Olivier met us at reception and gave us a local map with lots of information about the local area, buses, restaurants etc He was friendly, polite and very helpful. Two days in and I managed to hurt my ankle, so didn't want to walk around Avignon in the evening looking for a restaurant. Fabrese (sorry if I've spelled your name incorrectly) looked up restaurants and came up to the room with printed menus for us to look at. He then rang and booked the restaurant and taxi for us, he could not have been more helpful.

Room Tip: The room we had on the 3rd floor overlooking the Rhone was great

The hotel design as a cube is very well done. Private balconies with seating and retractable shades are nice to enjoying the afternoon with a glass of wine. Very friendly and courteous service personal with very good knowledge of the city and there surroundings. Unfortunately, it is very noisy when the trains behind the house and the street in front the house becoming busy at 4 o’clock in the morning. However the location is perfect, a little walk of 10 min into town and a short drive the Ardeche Valley. We will come back.

Room Tip: ask for the rooms in the top floors, they have the great views!

The Cube is a great spot to stay when visiting Avignon. It's out of the town walls, but close enough and easy walk to discovering the area.

The rooms are clean, comfortable and a nice size. Private balconies with seating and retractable shades are nice to enjoying a view over the Pont and the silhouette of the Palais des Papes. The real bonus is the roof top terrace and breakfast room, including a lounge chair tanning area.

The staff was uber-friendly, helpful and eager to ensuring your stay in the area was enjoyable.

The included breakfast included many options for any diet. Enjoy the sunrise or the sunset over Avignon at the Cube.

The facilities were good, including a minibar. The staff were friendly and helpful, spoke much better English than I do French, and provided a map with tourist/eating/shopping recommendations on arrival. The hotel also has no lift, but the Manager carried my very heavy bag up to my room for me.

Be warned - this hotel is in neither Avignon or Villeneuve les Avignon, but about 10 minutes walk from either. The walk to Avignon was across 2 busy bridges, but the views on the way were spectacular. I was traveling alone and walked back to the hotel at around 1030pm and felt perfectly safe.

It is a much cheaper than staying in Avignon itself, so if a little exercise doesn't scare you, I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Pay the extra and get a Rhone view room - as long as you are on the 2nd floor or higher you should h...

My partner and I recently stayed here as part of a tour. As previously said in other reviews it is about 15-20 mins walk from the center of Avignon, across two bridges, or a 2 minute bus trip for 1.30 Euro each way. The bus stop is very close to the hotel. There is a beautiful terrace overlooking the river on the top floor of the hotel, which is open all night and is nice to have a few drinks on. Breakfast is also served up here which is a lovely start to the morning. Breakfast includes cereals, bread, croissants, cheese, ham, yogurt and boiled eggs- all very tasty! The owners were lovely and accommodating and spoke excellent English. The room and bathroom were of average size and although slightly dated were clean and comfortable. I found the pillows a little uncomfortable but I'm generally fussy when it comes to pillows. A nice touch to the room was the very well priced mini-bar. This hotel has no lift but there is access to the 2nd floor from behind the hotel so you only ever have to carry your bags one floor. Would definitely recommend this hotel to others.
