This was a short breakaway trip for me from the romantic Paris. I wanted to have a taste of the infamous Avignon, Provence. It took me a couple of hours of going through Trip Advisors reviews(thank you contributors) and recommendations that i decided on this hotel one day prior to departure. The photos helped too.
I was able to find my way to the hotel very easily from the bus stop. It's tucked away just a few meters from the main square and is within walking distance from the Opéra-théâtre d'Avignon & Palais des Papes.
The hotel staff spoke good English and was very helpful especially the Front Office Manager. He went out of his way to help find my reservation as there was none to be found. After two hours of calling the online travel sites, they found my prepaid reservation! Thank God, it wasn't a bogus web site! Having bad experiences in France years ago, this was a pleasant surprise for someone like me who spoke very little French, received help!
Although it's a small hotel it had a small lift. However, if you are travelling with more than one lugguage(heavy/large), try to get a room that is on the same level as the lift because some rooms are located on floors that have spilt levels (just a few steps that can be an inconvenience). Due to the layout of the hotel, there maybe pockets of wifi reception in the rooms if that's a priority for you.
I had a corner room which is tastefully furnished, bright and clean(very impt). The bed was comfortable and had a soft feathered duvet to sleep in. I was also impressed that they had high end guest toiletries too. Wished i had more time to enjoy my stay there.
