Great hotel and location
My husband and I spent one night at this hotel last month (Nov. 2003).
It is located at the entrance of the walled city. It was very easy to find since there are signs pointing to all of the hotels. The hotel is very comfortable and clean. I would recommend staying here when visiting Avignon.
We loved this hotel so much we stayed in Avignon an extra night. The staff were so helpful and the pool on the roof was gorgeous. The medieval courtyard was magical, but our room was bang up to date modern, stylish and delightfully air conditioned. Breakfasts were superb and the whole place was spotless. Having spent our first night in Avignon in a ghastly hotel that was not much cheaper, this was heaven.
A so so room in a dull place
This hotel is on one of the uglier streets of Avignon, a city I like a lot. We got a rather large room in the attic of this old monastery and instantly I started to feel claustrophobic. It went from bad to worse when I found out you couldnīt open the windows. Possibly they have better rooms, but I would hesitate before booking a room in this hotel again. On Saturday night the hotelsīs restaurant and bar were closed, so it was all a bit dull.
Serenity at the Cloitre
The setting of this hotel is the picture of serenity just steps from all the tourist attractions of Avignon. This is one of the rare hotels that exceeded it's online pictures. The rooms are huge in comparison to what you get in Paris, the restaraunt was wonderfull, and the pool is a nice break in the late afternoon from a full day of sightseeing. And the staff was very helpfull, friendly and funny. I highly recommend it.
P.S. It is a bit hard to find since it is off of a side street that is a one way street. But there are actually street signs right off of Avenue de Republic to guide you.
Gorgeous hotel in quiet quarter of Avignon perfectly located for exploring the city and surrounding countryside. Friendly staff, great catering, spacious and well furnished rooms.
10 minute walk from Palais and only a 2 minute walk from Eurostar terminal!
This is the hotel you want in Avignon
This hotel was one of the highlights of our trip (my wife and I) to Provence last year: beautiful setting and rooms, amazingly friendly/helpful staff, great breakfast buffet (best we've had anywhere in world) and dining, central location within the walled city, AND BEST OF ALL, a huge, free parking lot adjacent to the hotel...the only one this convenient in the walled city of Avignon. After staying here and checking out the other hotels in the walled city, we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.
Amazing architecture, not really hard to find, walking distance to the Palais but it's a walk! Great deal during off season (March). Nice staff.
We stayed at the Clarion for 2 nights in Jan 03. Had some issues finding the place using the directions on their website but it was at night and we were tired. The hotel has no front. Very weired setup but pretty cool once you walk in. We could almost hear/see the kids running down those halls ( I guess the hotel used to be a school ). We stayed in one of the rooms in the new addtion. The room was large but the layout was strange. The room is a rectangler... the bathroom is totally open with no door for privacy when taking a shower. The toilet is on the other side of the room with a door. If you stay around there... make sure to visit O'rileys just down the street. Very nice irish pub.
Anyway, the room was clean and nice people. Wouldn't stay here again just because I would like to try something new and the room had a weird setup but sometimes the dollar speaks louder. great price $70

"Living the dream"
We met our charming hostess, Veronique, late yesterday afternoon. Fortunately she speaks and writes in perfect English so instructions were easy to understand. The home is built into ancient city walls and includes a grotto with spa, carved into rock. The layout is interesting with lots of low stone doorways and winding stairways, leading to the various levels. ...
... Lourmarin. We walk into the village for dinner. On the way we pass a big field full of sunflowers. They look creepy. They are all facing in the same direction with their heads slightly bowed. I think they're planning an ambush. I think that I will have nightmares tonight about being attacked by sunflowers. After our problems with the language last night, we chose a different restaurant for dinner. We quickly realise that this is a mistake, and that we ...
... a glass of juice?!? I have created another video of Avignon, so take a look at the sights. Summary of my trip: - Palace of the Popes - Point Saint-Bénezet (bridge) - Wandering the medieval city streets - Exploring the different foods at the local market - Smurf flavoured gelato - because why not? - Listening to the music in the streets of ...
... Bears in the boutique, for Fid it was all the games centred around the factory operations - forklift driving, syrup mixing and mould forging - for Boo there was no contest - the boutique with massive multi-kilo bags of every product ready for you to purchase. The stress of deciding was nearly too much with the store threatening to close for siesta time before she made a choice. At the end of ...
... in 1995. We walked up to the ancient gardens and looked out over the Rhone, towards the Ancient Bridge, to the river island of Barthelasse where a medieval fort or castle dominates the scene - (we will give definition to this in tomorrow's blog). After a thunderstorm and rain, we explored the Popes Palace, which was fascinating (see above). Please note: cobblestones can be tiring on your feet! Hope to do the bridge itself tomorrow morning. Dinner ...
