We stayed here for 2 nights and arrived around 12:30 to check in. We had advised when booking we would be there at 2pm so we realised the room wouldnt be ready and we were happy to just leave our bags and go into town. When we arrived there was no one at the reception desk but there is a note advising to call 9 on the phone and someone will be down. We called on the phone at least 15 times over the space of an hour and no one answered or arrived. We found some cleaners and asked if anyone was around and they didnt speak very good english and told us to use the phone

We ended up waiting just over and hour and the only reason someone came down was because a service man arrived and went to speak to the cleaners in french and a little while later someone showed up. This was a huge annoyance as we wasted a good part of our day just waiting at reception with nothing happening. We couldnt take our bags into town as we had very large backpacks and it was very inconvenient. We also didnt receive any apology for the wait which i thought was bad form.

After the initial bad impression the hotel turned out to be really nice. The rooms were clean and bright and we had a nice view over the river. The staff were friendly and very helpful after the initial check in experience. The terrace upstairs is really nice and the hotel is about a 10 min walk from the main centre of town

Our booking said the hotel was now called o'Cub but all the signs pointing to the hotel and the hotel itself still says hotel cube so this is a bit confusing.

Overall i would stay again but would hope that we wouldnt be waiting over an hour at reception again

We wanted a good value hotel near the centre of Avignon with free parking. This really suited the bill and came with service like none other I've seen in France! They really couldn't do enough to please. We would certainly return. Thank you!

I loved this hotel. It was clean, modern, comfortable and we had a great view of Avignon. The real plus is walking distance into the old town and yet having free parking onsite. It was perfect for our needs and the hotel staff were really helpful and thoughtful. Very good value and they took great care of us. The roof terrace is also such a plus

Room Tip: Top floor with views of the Rhone, the other side has a rail track- but we were not aware of any noi...

- Good service, good restaurant recommendations
- Basic hotel, fine for one night
- Next to railway
- Fair walk across to Avignon, however it was a nice walk
- They are obviously making an effort to improve this hotel. It has had some redecoration, but there is no hiding that it is very old and in need of a complete renovation
- Must point out however it is very clean
- Loud air-conditioning which disrupted our sleep
- Didn't go up to the terrace for breakfast and while we had a balcony, it was too windy to utilise
- Couldn't find anything in Avignon itself in our desired price range with parking for the money we paid here, so in that aspect it was good value

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.
