“Excellent 2* hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2011

This is an excellent 2* hotel. It's very clean, the facilities all work well, and free Internet is great. Since it's in the pedestrian area, it's quiet throughout. It's at the opposite end of the town from the Palais du Papes, but the walk only takes 15 minutes. A big plus of the location is that it's near the reasonably priced cafes/bakeries/restaurants. Parking and laundry are also just a short walk from the hotel.

However, don't expect a luxury hotel. You'll need to carry your bags up the spiral staircase. And, the rooms are basic and small.

The owner is very helpful with any questions about activities in Avignon. The class (6 EUR) breakfast is a reasonable value.

My sister, cousins, and I stayed at Hotel Le Colbert during the middle of September for three nights (six of us shared three rooms). After reading hundreds of reviews on Trip Advisor, reading Rick Steves, and seeing photos of the hotel, I was drawn to Hotel Le Colbert because it seemed cozy and had a feel of being in France rather than staying in a typical large hotel. It was like a charming bed and breakfast except, with a twist of some quirky, avant-garde posters. Patrice and Annie welcomed us on our arrival. We are all past retirement age, and Patrice kindly took our suitcases up to our rooms for us. He was kind and helpful in every way, recommending great, and reasonable, restaurants and telling us what to look for to ensure that the products we bought were actually made in France. We enjoyed Annie's breakfasts, one in the inner dining area and another out on the lovely patio.

The hotel is in a great location, within the Old City walls, next to a park and on a side street off the main road, close enough to walk to the Central train station, the Palais des Papes, the famous bridge, etc. The rooms were immaculately kept; it seemed like they changed the sheets every day; at least they seemed pressed and fresh every time we returned to our rooms at the end of the day. Patrice noticed the origin of one of our names and asked if we were of Greek descent, which we are (Americans born to Greek immigrant parents). The next morning at breakfast, we noticed that he was playing Greek music, and he even greeted us with Greek phrases, which was very endearing! We loved all the restaurants Patrice recommended: the late lunch of mussels at a nearby restaurant, and especially, Fou de Fafa and Le Caveau du Theatre; great meals, presented beautifully. We also found a great ice cream shop, Amarino's. That was the best gelato/ice cream we've all ever had. We made it our mission to go back there another night!

We used Avignon as our base of operations for day trips to Arles, St. Remy and the Luberon area. We loved the Luberon villages. Although it was too late in the season to see the lavender, which was already harvested, the villages are extremely picturesque. We visited Isle Sur Sorgue, lovely with its waterwheels, Gordes, which is a spectacular village built into the mountain (we all gasped as we drove up toward it), and Village des Bories, stone huts which account for the way of life in Provence, from far-off times to the present day.

The benefit of staying in such a hotel is the personal touch from Patrice and Annie. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Avignon!

Room Tip: There is no elevator, so you might want a room on a lower level.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely hotel. Immaculately clean with all the mod cons you want but in a wonderful provencal style. Only dispappointment was not being able to drink our bottle of champagne in the little courtyard- had to sit in our room. The hotel is in a fantastic location, so convenient to shops and restaurants but down a quiet little street. We will definately stay here again.

We had read good reports about this hotel and they were spot on. The owners are so helpful and friendly and are always there to great guests when they come in the front door.
Always go for the breakfast option. It is wonderful and so unusual. Mind your head in the attic room but everything is so colourful and fun we would stay there anytime. Oh, and it is quiet at night.

What a wonderful hotel close to all the sights in the old town.
Rooms are akin to art deco galleries. The service is outstanding and the Provencal breakfasts delight the taste buds.
Excellent value and run by a couple with great pride in their establishment!
Thanks again Patrice & Annie for four wonderful nights in Avignon- we hope to return.

This lovely little boutique property is located on a quiet street within the city walls, minutes walk from the TGV station. Our room was spacious and clean. Good shower. Wifi. Windows opened. Breakfast options continental or full breakfast very good. Hosts very welcoming. They gave us some excellent restaurant recommendations. No lift but the hotel exudes charm and ambiance. Bright feel good Provencal decor. We will be staying here again next time.

Room Tip: Ask for a large corner room. It is worth it.

We stayed for 2 nights at this lovely little hotel tucked away on a quiet street in Avignon. We enjoyed our stay very much! The breakfast they provided was the best breakfast we received in all of France, with a delicious selection of home-made items. The hotel itself is ideally situated within easy walking distance of all of the shopping, tourist sites and restaurants in Avignon. Thankfully, it is on a pedestrian only street, so it is very quiet and peaceful in an otherwise traffic-filled, noisy city. The owners of the hotel are very friendly and accommodating, providing a charming, comfortable, unique place to stay. We would definitely stay here again if visiting the area!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room #9 on the second floor and loved it. You do need to walk up 2 flights of stairs on...
