“atmospheric and lovely staff but bed bugs”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2011

We stayed as a family and although it was quite lovely as a place my husbands bed had bed bugs ( he was covered in tracks; over 40 bites and managed to kill one). One member of the staff was delightful and very helpful with storing our huge amounts of luggage. The breakfast was pretty poor quality and very expensive ( fruit was wrinkly and old and cheese and ham were very poor quality compared to what we were used to in france and the surrounding cafes). It is in a good position in town and close to train station

A surprisingly cute hotel with a grand staircase circling up to about 16 rooms. We had a nice triple room, one double and a single, space for a cot, bathroom was newly refurbished with walk-in shower. Breakfast was standard, easy walking distance to all central areas and sights, space to leave luggage during the day.

Nice small, reasonably priced hotel close to Papal Palace and most other tourist attractions in Avignon. Hotel is clean and quiet. Only drawback is parking which is 400/500 metres away and access to the hotel is via a pedestrian street.

We stayed at Hotel de Blauvac the first night of a bike trip we booked with a French bike tour company. We had looked up the hotel in advance and saw all the reviews mentioning bed bugs--I panicked, wrote to the biking company asking to be moved: they got back to me saying that they had contacted the hotel and had been assured that a "treatment" had been done. Not convinced, I also wrote to the hotel directly asking if the problem was fixed and was told at length that 'many hotels in the South of France have this problem' but that yes, they had gotten rid of the bugs.
We left our luggage in the bathroom and checked the bed as closely as possible: thought we were in the clear. The room itself was dingy and smelled like a sewer, and the woman at the front desk was frosty, at best, but we figured it was only one night. VERY stupid decision to have stayed at this hotel. We found a bed bug IN the bed the next morning, and within hours, the bites appeared--probably 20 in total on my face, stomach and back. The itchiest bites I have EVER had--and really spoiled my enjoyment of the rest of the trip. Next time I will trust what Trip Advisor has to say about bed bugs, and not the hotel itself.

The location was good but the bed bugs really ruined my experience! After getting bitten in the first night, I complained to the front desk and got moved to another room. Oh boy it's even worse! After two nights and some many bites, my experience in Avignon was just unpleasant.

Also, the back alley was a place for lots drunk and it's not too quiet at night. As I still have the marks on my body to remind me of this place, I would not recommend the hotel to anyone I like!
