My wife and I stayed in one of the premium double rooms with shower. This hotel has an ideal location but is dirty, has a toilet stall that is so small the toilet touched the side wall and one cannot close the door while on the toilet. The bed had no mattress pad on it. We almost checked out on the first night. The AC was not working and the WiFi only worked in the breakfast room and courtyard. The halls and stairs have dirty, damaged carpeting. The courtyard is full of pigeon poop on the tile and walls. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They let us store our bicycles in the back alleyway in back of the hotel.

This hotel is overpriced for what it offers. The room was ok and spacious, but the hotel itself is pretty run down. The shower drain was totally blocked, and some disgusting smells emanated from the drains. The surroundings aren't the best, as it's the area of the city centre where the homeless tend to gather. The air conditioning had no cooling effect whatsoever. Free internet worked fine and the front garden is pleasant to sit in; rooms are very quiet. If you're travelling by car, there isn't any parking space nearby, though Avignon has free parking just outside the city walls, within 10'15 minutes walk. You have to remember to add the city tax to the quoted price.

very good position, close to the central pedestrian area, free parking available in 10/15 minutes by walking. taking into account that is a simple 2 star hotel and that we were in three in a room, the quality cost ratio was good. friendly staff. recommended.

I originally stayed in this hotel about five or six years ago and found it satisfactory. The location, within the walls of Avignon is good. The staff are friendly and helpful. After this most recent stay I found that it had changed very little since my original stay. This hotel needs considerable renovation and refurbishment. It is presently rated as a two star, but I would consider it a low one star at present. It is probably trading too much on its excellent location, and its friendly, helpful staff. More investment in its physical facilities is desperately needed!

Very convenient location not far from city bus and train stations. Quiet room, even if a bit spartan, but for the price what does one expect? One area that needs more attention is cleaning - certain nooks and crannies had been forgotten. When I pulled back the sheets to get into bed at first I was horrified at what looked like unmentionable stains, only to realise that in fact somebody had used an iron that was too hot!

We stayed only 1 night in a twin room, we had to cancel 1 night due to changes in plan and that was made without any problems. We had ensuite toilet and shower. The door was not enough to give privacy. The room was good size, it was warm and there was extra blanket available. However, it was close to stairway and was a bit noisy when people walked pass.

Apart from having to carry my bags up four+ very steep old winding European staircases to the farthest room available -- this place was a dream. Excellent value for money. No place is cheaper. And it's still a relatively comfortable hotel. Sure, it's a little shabby, but the location is perfect, very quaint, and the room and sheets were clean. Wifi available in the room, and it was pretty fast. I had a great stay. (Just remember flip-flops for the shower if you don't take an en-suite...)

This is a very convenient hotel just located along the main street of Avignon, everything is within walking distance. But this is the first time I payed 40 euros for a single room neither without bathroom nor air conditioner and the room is no more than 8 m2 big. Anyway, to find a satisfactory hotel with a low price is not easy in such a small town like Avignon. In general, the stuff is friendly and can speak English quite well. The location is the best part.

The hotel has a great location right in the centre of Avignon and close to the main attractions, the fact that the hotel is behind a building of the main road gives it privacy. The rooms are awfully small and the toilet is just a few inches away from one of the sides of the bed which is not very nice.

Hotel vicinissimo al centro, si può tranquillamente andare a piedi per fare shopping o visitare il palazzo dei Papi, il ponte di Avignone ed altri musei. La stanza è molto confortevole e pulita. Unico neo è la mancanza di ascensore e se capitate al 3 piano sarà molto difficile "arrampicarsi" con le valigie per le scale molto strette.

Awesome hotel for the price we paid - it was a spacious room, right in the center of the old city, 2 minute walk to the express bus that takes you to the train station. Very quiet too. The hotel staff didn't seem overly friendly but it wasn't a big deal.

The only problem I had with the hotel was that it was above a bar and music was playing sometimes until 2.00pm in the morning and as it was hot the window had to be left open and therefore it was very noisy but everything else about the hotel was fine

The room booked on Venere was awful! It was a closet, and had a fan, but no outlet (I was told that room was the cheapest and therefore had no outlet!) So, for a couple more Euros, I upgraded and had a nicer room. Nothing fancy, but this one had outlets and a TV... and was 3 times the size. So warning - the room I wound up with was nice, but if I had been stuck with the one Venere gave me, it would have been AWFUL!!!

We stayed in Avignon for 2 nights. The hotel was easy to find, in a great location, a short walk from the centre. Parking was in a nearby secure carpark with a 50% reduction in rate. The walls were thin and there were a few mosquitos but when asked, the receptionist provided flyspray and showed us where the plug-in repellants were. We couldn't use the room phone to call out and the shower head was broken, the courtyard as shown in the photos was a resting place for pidgeons so the tables were not clean and there were feathers lying around.

This is not a beautiful or comfortable hotel but then neither would you expect this for the price given the location. We suffered badly from the mosquitos, a problem which might have been lessened had the bathroom window not been broken so that it was impossible to close it. If you are looking to stay in avignon for a short time and are on a strict budget then this hotel does have it's positive points, but i think next time i might be a little less tight on the budget.
