Nice Hotel, very confortable for its location. Unfortunately, chambres a little bit noisy. Relationship price/quality good but not excellent (breakfast should be included, considered the price per day, and not considered as an extra at an additional price of 18 Euro/person).

The Hotel has just got 4 stars. And it is for those who love 4 stars hotels. Some staff is a little bit arrogant. The Internet works through an individual password and you always need to type it again and again as the connection breaks down when you close your device (or stop). And it is not very fast. I-phone works badly with this system.

Absolutely spotless rooms and high quality facilities, queen bed comfortable with ironed white cotton sheets and excellent shower with soft thick, white towels. However rooms on first floor at least are very small. I asked for a change of room because there was no room for a suitcase in the first. The second room was better but lacked a voil curtain. Main problem was they don't make up the room till the afternoon which was inconvenient. Staff polite, helpful and position is central, if a little noisy in the early mornings particularly with street cleaners etc outside window. Still, a good stay and generally comfortable.

The room was small for the amount of money it cost. The first night the bath water would not go down and I had to go to a room on the first floor to take a shower - this was not ideal. Then the sink needed to have the plunger out in order to drain. The staff was very helpful and pleasant.

Location in the heart of Avignon is the biggest attraction. Biggest drawback was the size of the room - this is a "converted " building and in our case there was too much entrance passageway into the room and not enough "room" itself. Also although we were on the third floor, there were stairs to navigate having left the elevator and the third floor is in fact on three levels. Breakfast was not included. It is served in a naturally lit dining room and provided an adequate choice of items. Access to the breakfast room from inside the building is circuitous.

Very good hotel, well situated. Nice and confortable room. People at the reception desk very nice. Only problem was breakfast. Scrambled eggs, boiled eggs and sausages of very poor quality, certainly not worth the price (+/- 15 eur). Also, the room where breakfast took place was very poorly ventilated, very old air conditioning not functioning properly.

My wife and I stayed in the De l'Horloge for 3 days in Sept 2009. We stayed in a "taditional" room which is a North American sized motel room, with a kink size bed and a seperate bathroom 130€/ night. The room had stains on the walls, but otherwise seemed clean. When we checked in we had to wait until 3:30 becuase the room had not been cleaned from the last users. They allowed us to leave our luggage there and we went for a walk while we waited. The hotel is right at the Papal Palace and the town square so it was VERY convenient to all sights. Lots of eateries near by. It is a noisy area with much happening so we kept the window closed and the A/C on at night. Our room overlooked the town square. The room had a hot water kettle with instant coffee, do not expect a breakfast. This is a big tourist town so eating is expensive, we used the grocery store in town to make lunches, because you could easily spend 150€ a day if eating 3 meals in restaurants. We loved the town, very beautiful, many camera shots to bring home. The Nimes Ville train station just a 10 minute walk away, and, there is a bus that goes to the Nice Centre TGV train station that runs every 20 minutes. There isn't a lot in Avignon, you can pretty well see the town in 2 days, so we took the train to Nimes from here to see the amphiteatre, roman gardens, parthenon (Maison Carrere). The trains was a 30 min ride and runs all day. Nimes was a great town so don't miss it. Three days seemed just about right to do what we did. Conclusion: Hotel location is in a perfectly convenient location, you don't need a car to get around, the traditional room is very near what you would expect from a North American motel room, it's pricey by North American standards but so is everything in France. If you want more luxury you would want to get a more expensive room in the same building, but stick with this building.

My friend and I stayed for a week in early September 2009. We loved the hotel - in particular its position right in the main square in the centre and the friendly and welcoming staff who were were always ready to help. The linen was changed daily and the beds were really comfortable. The room was a bit small for two singles, and there are never enough coat hangers for two women! But we weren't in Avignon to sit in the hotel room, and there was a nice lounge area on our floor, near the room, if we wanted to make a phone call or give each other some privacy. If I wanted to be picky, the bathroom, although spacious, was old-fashioned and I had to crouch in the bath with a hand shower because there was no shower curtain or screen! But it was very quiet (our room did not look out into the main square but was on the other side which prob was quieter anyway) with good air-con - something that I always demand above almost all else in France. I would stay here again.

This hotel didn't meet our standards. I went there with a friend for the Festival and the price of the double room was very high as compared the service provided. In the bathroom particularly there was the closet (?), it was stuck to the toilet and we could open only one of its door! Completely crazy! The breakfast cost 14 euros and we had already paid 140 euros for the room for one night so I think it was too expensive!! The good points were the perfect location and the air conditioned!

This hotel is located directly on Place de l'Horloge so it is perfect for spending a car free weekend. Both the Palais de Papes and the main shopping and restaurant areas are within 2 minutes of the front door. Apart from that, the hotel is clean, well appointed and the staff very professional and friendly.

A great location and a pleasant hotel with attentive staff. Rooms were a little small, as is the case for almost all french town center hotels, but clean and well maintained. Excellent for Avignon town center and night life. You will have to travel a little to get good food in the center of town as the square caters mostly for tourist menus. A great place to stay to enjoy the hubub of the town and walk easily, in a few minutes, to the Palace Of The Popes.

I have no idea what the room we orignally booked looked like since we were informed as we walked in the door to the hotel that we had been upgraded to a larger room. The location was excellent, with large windows overlooking the main square. The room, even though upgraded, was much larger than I expected with a large bathroom and separate toilet area. The hotel is in a very old historic building and it's hard to tell what it will look like when you walk into the rather small reception area. You couldn't ask for a better location if staying in Avignon. The staff was friendly and helpful and all spoke english fairly well, certainly better than my french.

We were very happy with our stay. The hotel is on a quiet street, but very close to the town square and a large number of busy restaurants and sidewalk cafes, and only a few blocks from the Palais des Papes. It is not much more than a ten minute easy walk from either the train station or the shuttle stop from the TGV station outside of town. Both our room and bathroom were clean, modern and relatively large and the staff was friendly and helpful.

Website pictures didn't match our experience. The photo is of the corner of the building, in reality, the front door paint is peeling, our room was furnished with dingy and broken furniture. We asked for a non-smoking room, but the room smelled of mold and smoke. It looked as if the "no-smoking" signs (paper tags) had been posted the day before. It _is_ in the middle of everything, but it's pretty worn down.

This hotel was very pleasant and comfortable, overall. The room we stayed in was very small, but did include a full private bath and was relatively quiet. The location was excellent, if you are looking to be right in the heart of what the old town area of Avignon has to offer. Several restaurants and shops are literally within steps of the hotel, and it is located right at the center point of lots of shopping and historical spots. The Palais des Papes is a very short walk, which provided a full day of activities and culture. I would recommend this hotel for a mid-priced stay, and would be likely to return.

Delighted with our stay at l'Horloge. On arrival I was briefly cross to find the secure parking was not in the hotel, but the staff were so pleasant & helpful that I soon calmed down, & the system worked well. Our room was large & well equipped, 1st floor on the corner with windows looking across and along the square. Feared a noisy night, but actually very peaceful.

Only one bulb out of 4 in bedside lights worked. Hopefully lift will be working soon as carrying cases up 4 floors is not for faint hearted (to be fair there would have been a porter in 30-45 mins).Dr Sandra Sedgwick UK
